Divan beds are popular the world over as a versatile, adaptable, affordable and practical furnishing option. If you’re considering redecorating your bedroom then it’s possible that you’ve looked at a few divan beds already, or if not, that you still may end up choosing one. Today divan beds are available in a wide range of styles and varieties, making them the ideal bedroom solution for any number of redecorating projects. Divan beds can be made in a variety of colours and shades, so as to suit any furnishing or decorating scheme. This is because the bed itself is simply a timber shell, over which coloured material is stretched- the option to colour or pattern this stretched material means that the variations in style for divan beds is almost endless.
Like any bed, divan beds are sold in a variety of sizes, from single divan beds all the way up to a king-size divan bed. King-size divan beds are particularly popular among many people because of the increasing difference in price between high and low cost beds as the size of a bed increases: a single bed is only going to be so expensive regardless of what it is made out of, but when looking at a bed as large as a king-size the potential difference in price between the bottom and top of the market is substantial.
There are a large number of criteria you ought to consider selecting a divan bed: one of their main advantages over other sorts of bed is the storage they offer beneath the bed. This storage facility falls into two distinct categories and you will need to consider how and how often you will want to use the storage space beneath the bed. The majority of divan beds on the market have drawers beneath the bed. These are ideal for storing things that are used routinely, such as spare bedding for the bed, pyjamas or other clothing. If you want to store items that you will have to get access to all the time, this is the option that will suit you best. The other form of storage below the bed is where the entire sleeping surface, including the mattress, lifts up on a hydraulic arm. This gives access to a storage area that spans the entire footprint of the bed and is of particular use for storing larger things that you need access to less often, such as that spare duvet you only use when guests stay. When choosing your new divan, you should give some thought to exactly what you will want to store under the bed and how often you will need to access it.
As with a lot of furniture, the internet can be a terrific place to start your search for a new bed. If you establish a firm idea of what you’re looking for and how much you can afford to spend, the web will allow you to compare prices and find a terrific bargain from the comfort of your own home.
