Divan Bases

Most UK manufacturers produce beds with platform top bases, sometimes known as padded top, which gives a firmer feel to the mattress, a sprung edge divan which provides softer feel and firm edge divan for a more support.

Platform top baseA platform top base has a solid board top and will generally give a firmer feel to the bed.

 

 

Sprung edge baseA sprung base has a layer of springs attached to the wooden frame and the mattress sits ontop of them. It gives a softer feel to the bed. In some cases, on more luxurious beds the base will contain a pocket sprung unit.

 

 

Firm edge baseA firm edge base is sprung, but with a solid edge, giving additional support to the edge of the bed. They generally use larger springs than on a sprung edge base.

 

Drawer Configuration

Most beds have a drawer option. This in no way weakens the base.

  • 2 drawers available on all sizes
  • End drawer available on 4’6” and 5’0” only
  • 3 drawers (2 drawers + end drawer) available on 4’6” and 5’0” only

The end drawer option is very limited
