Life is full of decisions. Some, like choosing a place to
live, are more critical than others. Deciding on a style of bed may be
relatively straight forward but it's important to get it right. Any bed that's
uncomfortable is bound to affect the quality of sleep. It's also worth bearing
in mind that, like all major pieces of furniture, beds are expected to last a
It makes economical sense to opt for a style that carries
a minimum five year warranty. Considering that, for the foreseeable future, the
bed is likely to be a permanent fixture, aesthetics also play a role. What
appears trendy and novel today, can in a year or two look dated.
With so many styles on offer, searching for the perfect
bed can be exhausting. Before entering the shopping fray, it can be helpful to
draw up a list of some basic requirements. Determine things like who is going
to use the bed. An adult with mobility problems may need a bed that's strong
enough to support an orthopaedic mattress. If the bed is for a young child, it
might be better to choose a design that's closer to the floor.
If the intended purpose is to provide guest
accommodation, a day bed or futon could be a good solution. Maybe space is a

can meet the need. Currently one of the best selling designs, a divan bed is
an ideal choice. At a time when every penny counts, these beds are among
the most affordable.
Apart from an attractive price tag, customer feedback
reveals that additional storage facilities, give divans a competitive edge.
Like other designs, divan beds can incorporate under-bed drawers to provide
some extra space. However, in many divans, the whole bed lifts up to allow
maximum storage in the box area below. This additional space is great for
storing items, such as seasonal clothing or anything that isn't used regularly.
Where room dimensions pose a challenge, divans are
available in a petite width of 2' 6". This size could be ideal as a first
bed for children. At the other end of the scale, divans can be zipped together
to provide comfort of the super king size variety. Divans offer the perfect
accommodation for visitors but, as they tend to be heavier than other guest
beds designs, they're better suited to a permanent setting. Many divans are
equipped with castors to ensure ease of mobility.
A divan bed usually consists of a base and mattress.
Headboards are optional. However, many customers appreciate the opportunity to
add a touch of individuality to the bed. Some choose a headboard in keeping
with the feel of the room. Others prefer to use large pillows or cushions as
