Bed Frames and Divan Bases
Bed frames and divan bases come in a variety of materials and styles. They are also available in a multitude of sizes depending on your needs and the size of mattress you require with single, small double, double, king and super king being particularly commonplace.
Metal Bed Frames
Metal bed frames are strong, durable and designed to stand the test of time. Many feature decorative details such as an ornate, high standing headboard with a matching footboard. Beautifully curved rails can also add to the aesthetics of a bed frame with immaculate black or white paintwork often contrasting with gold or silver bed knobs.
Metal bed frames come in different sizes and are suitable for adults and children alike with metal framed bunk beds often being accompanied by a matching metal ladder.
Solid Wood Bed Frames
Bed frames made from solid wood are long lasting and can, therefore, be used for many years without suffering significant deterioration. One of the most appealing things about wooden furniture is that the wood grain tends to differ between pieces giving bed frames a unique appearance.
Wooden frames are often made from strong oak or pine and can be painted, varnished or upholstered depending on the design. Many have a slatted base and feature additional storage.
Divan bases are ideal for anyone who already has a mattress. There are many shapes, sizes and storage options to choose from and while they tend to be less ornate than other frames, divan bed bases are extremely comfortable and practical. While pocket sprung divans have springs in the base offering a softer top, platform top divans are harder to sleep on.
Many divan bases are covered in soft materials such as crushed velvet which offers a luxurious and striking finish. Accompanying headboards and footboards occasionally feature beautiful button detailing with a vintage charm.
