Beds have gone through a lot of evolution and i mprovements over time. Initially, they were made from animal skins, straw and feathers. Presently, beds are made from a lot of different materials and they have a much different look from their older counterparts.
A divan bed is a bed that is made up of 2 different components, the mattress and the base. The base of the divan bed is a wooden frame that is sturdy and looks like a box with a hole. The base of the divan bed could have a flat top that is hard or springs.
The divan bed has a hole which is very useful. In most cases, compartments or drawers are made into the base which can be used to store things. The base of the divan beds also has a sort of handle known as casters which can be used to move it around. Alternatively, it could have wooden legs, which raises it above the floor a bit. There are different types and styles of divan beds including back care beds, pocket sprung beds, hypoallergenic beds and memory foam beds. There are also divan beds that are orthopaedic.
A divan bed does not have any frame or end boards supporting it as against other ordinary beds. The frame and end boards help in reducing mattress wears and acts as a shock absorber. This helps to make your bed firm and provides a structure for the mattress. The base of the bed which sometimes have a headboard acts as support for the mattress.
Divan beds also have hard or soft types. The harder type gives more support and they are not affected by your weight compared to softer types. The softer divan beds however has a more luxurious feel. How much support you get from the soft divan bed depends on the type of mattress you are using. Most ordinary beds however have only a hard type or soft type. This implies you have more choices if you want a Divan bed than when you want an ordinary bed.
