Introducing divan bed bases, designed with your utmost comfort, support, and practicality in mind. Embrace the luxury of spacious storage drawers hidden beneath the surface, elegantly decluttering your bedroom and creating a tranquil sanctuary to escape the day's hustle.
What are the benefits of divan bed bases?
1. Space-saving practicality
A divan bed base is great for smaller bedrooms and conserving floor space because of its compact footprint and handy storage compartments.
2. Multiple storage options
Many of our divan bed bases come with customisable storage options, which means you can find a bed frame that is just right for your room. You can choose from 4 drawers, 2 drawers, full-size drawers, continental drawers, and even half-ottoman, half-divan.
3. Styles for everyone
While function is important, you also want your bed to look good. After all, it is the most prominent part of your bedroom! Luckily, divan bed bases come in a huge variety of colours and materials, such as super soft upholstered frames in twill and velvet in beautiful shades, including neutrals like grey, white, black, plus modern blues and greens.
4. Superior comfort and support
A divan bed base is built to comfortably support your mattress. They come with either a platform top base offering firm support or a pocket sprung base with reactive springs that take some of the pressure off of your mattress and increase its lifespan.

What are the different types of divan bed bases with storage
These bed frames offer a huge range of storage configurations to suit the size of your bedroom:
Divan bed bases with 2 drawers
With single divans or some small double divan frames, you’ll find two drawers, positioned on either one side of the bed or each side depending on the model you choose.
Divan bed bases with 4 drawers
Double, king and super king divan bed bases can fit 2 drawers on each side, they're ideal for spacious bedrooms that need extra storage space.
Divan beds with ottoman storage
Ottoman divan bed bases open from the side or foot end to reveal a spacious split storage area. There are also ottoman bases with divan drawers, with the space split between the two. This means that you'll have room for bigger items like bedding and blankets, while also having convenient drawers in different configurations of 2 or 4. Available in small double and bigger, the ottoman compartment has an easy-to-lift mechanism and is completely hidden when closed.

Which is best a divan bed frame or an ottoman?
The choice between a divan bed and an ottoman ultimately depends on your individual needs and how you prefer accessing the storage. Most divans offer built-in drawers that are easy to pull out. On the other hand, an ottoman offers storage space accessible through an easy lift mechanism. Both options have their advantages, which you read more about in our divan vs ottoman guide.
