Frequently Asked Question about Divan beds

Divan beds are a special type of bed. The most common example of a bed includes the use of slats. That is not the case when it comes to divans. Slats are prone to breakage. That is why a change was required. The repair cost with slats being broken now and then was astronomical. That is why the divan bed is a great alternative. Unlike solid slats, the divan base comes in two components. These two combine to form the divan base. To combat the overhead costs, a new kind of base comes into action. This is known as a box-spring base. The sizes of bed matter a lot, when it comes to comfort.

What is a box spring base?

A base that comes with a wooden frame. The structure of the base is a square box. This base provides the foundation the divan bed requires. Unlike the solid slats, the box springs do not have any moving parts. Instead, it relies on the steel coils that form a network. With an anti-slip fabric, the experience is spectacular. The springs can levitate the overall pressure. The base can provide a comfortable sleep if you invest in a divan bed with a mattress. The open coils present inside the wooden frame can promote airflow. It provides the support you require.  

The even distribution of the weight is one of the main reasons why customers prefer a divan bed with a mattress. This way the whole framework prevents the open coils from sagging. An orthopaedic mattress is the best pair for the divan bed. Investing in a pocket sprung mattress is incompatible. Having two of the same things will have an effect that will hamper comfort. The springs present inside the box spring base act as shock absorbers. Which in return reduces the transfer of motion.

What is the benefit of owning divan beds?

Here are several benefits of owning a divan bed.

The box spring base can provide unrelenting support to the mattress. This means that the base can cushion the mattress and provide ample relief to the sleeper. The base can also raise the mattress to a certain height. This gives an advantage to customers who can easily access the mattress without any issues. At the same time, the box spring base can protect the mattress from shock.  Having a box spring base helps in the improvement of airflow. This gives the sleeper a cool and comfortable sleep.
