The 5 Most Popular Divan Bed Bases

Fancy sleeping on one of our best divan beds with storage or without? Well, here they are – shop our collection for one of these…

If you want a wooden bed frame with up to four storage drawers tucked beneath your mattress, all upholstered in your choice of fabric, you absolutely have to try a divan bed base. From our strongest to our slimmest and even an electric divan bed frame, you’re not short of options. So read everything worth knowing about divans and find your perfect base only divan with this helpful guide.

Our standard base only divans are formed of two upholstered wooden bed frames, securely fastened together with a metal bar. If your staircase or door frames are narrow, your divan base can be built in more sections. All divan beds can be fitted with storage drawers.

1. Arete Premium Divan Base

If you don’t want your bed to look too bulky, choose our slimmest firm top divan bed base starting from as little as £199 – your Arete Premium Divan Base can be upholstered with your favourite of 20 coloured fabrics, ranging from neutral pewter coloured wool to fusion teal and Verona terracotta. Elsewhere, you get to choose either chrome or oak finish legs to help match your bed to your bedroom furniture and raise the bed base 11cm off the floor.

Meanwhile, you’ll get the connections you need to attach a headboard to either end of your bed base – which looks particularly stylish with our floorstanding Farnley headboard, but do explore our collection

2. Firm Top Premium Divan Base

Traditionally built and reinforced with an extra-strong compressed Pegboard top, timber side supports and extra slats, the Firm Top Premium Divan Base is especially sturdy – in point of fact, it’s so well-crafted that it goes above and beyond National Bedding Federation standards. That’s why it’s one of our most popular divans when coupled with a floorstanding Ripley headboard. And it’s yours for as little as £259, with 15 bed sizes to choose from, ranging from special sizes like a small double bed to a standard UK single divan bed, for example, and EU bed sizes. 

This base only divan bed frame is approximately 35.5cm or 14 inches high when sat on its Shepherd Castors, you can swap your castors for gliders or have the bed base built at a lower height for a £20 fee. 

3. Marquis Upholstered Divan Base

Here’s a divan bed base that’s a little bit different, designed to make it as easy as possible for you to actually get it into your bedroom. See, the Marquis Upholstered Divan Base is delivered in six fuss-free pieces that slot together quickly and easily – ready to sit on your choice of modern block style feet or striking tubular-style feet, in either a natural or mahogany finish.

At 10-inches deep, the Marquis is 2-inches slimmer than the Viscount divan bed base from the same Landmark Collection – an affordable range that oozes luxury and honours Yorkshire’s most prestigious stately homes. Order the Marquis in 17 special, standard UK and EU sizes, starting for as little as £269.

4. Sprung Divan Bed Base on Legs

The beauty of the Sprung Divan Bed Base on Legs is that you can have it built to a variety of heights with different leg sizes, making it easier for you to get on and off your mattress. It’s essentially a solid timber frame topped with springs and upholstered in a Cream Damask fabric as standard – unless you have your heart set on another fabric in our colour guide, in which case, contact us and we can help.

Starting from as little as £229, this divan bed frame comes in 20 sizes – special sizes from wide single to small double and a host of standard UK and EU sizes.

5. Electrical Adjustable Standard Divan Base

Wake up less stiff by sleeping on one of our best adjustable beds – the ever-popular Electrical Adjustable Standard Divan Base with its motorised 5 fold mechanism that moves to support your body and improve your posture at the touch of a button, helping you sit up or lie comfortably without stacking your pillows in a tower. The solid beech slats move quietly and smoothly to lift your legs and raise your back. And unlike all other divan bases in our collection, this bed frame will be delivered in whole.

Remember, all electric adjustable beds are slightly longer than standard UK single beds, which is why it’s listed as an EU single bed. But you can still opt to have 2 storage drawers and have yours upholstered in one of five coloured fabrics, from Chenille Brown to Faux Suede Barley and Chenille Mink.
