Bed Sizes

Divan beds in the UK are manufactured in six standard sizes. These range from the small single up to the largest super king size bed. Purchasing one of these standard sizes provides great convenience as you will find accessories such as headboards and bedding follow these standard sizes, ensuring everything fits perfectly together. In addition to the standard sizes here at Bed Factory Direct we also manufacture custom sized beds.

Now if you have the need for a larger bed or have an odd shaped room, you may need a bed that does not follow the standard size rules. Here at the bedfactory we manufacture divan beds in over 120 different sizes and these beds can be found in our custom sized bed category. 

In the past ordering odd sized beds may have taken an age, but here as we manufacture all our beds to order these beds can be produced just as quickly as a standard sized bed. So if your fed up of your feet hanging out the bed or just want the extra space to stretch out in bed, a custom sized bed may be for you.


Divan Base Heights

Bed Factory manufactured divan beds come in standard sizes. For example a standard platform top divan bed will have a 14 inch base, when you include a wheel (castor) this takes the total height to 15.5 inches. Castors add around 1.5 inches to the height of a base, if you require pegs you can request these to be added by leaving a comment on the chckout page to drop the base around one inch. Please also take into consideration the depth of your mattress, we supply various size mattress ranging from Six to Twelve inches, if you require any assistance please get in touch with us and we will be happy to answer any queries regarding divan bases.

Divan Base Type Height in Inches
Platform Top 15.5 (including casters)
Drawer Base 15.5 (including casters)
Ottoman Base 15.0 (including casters)
High Divan Base 20.0 (including casters)
Custom Divan 15.5 (including casters)

Helping you size things up.

Before choosing your bed, one of the key considerations you have to take into account is the size, and sometimes sizes can vary from place to place; our sizes are based on UK bed sizes, below is a diagram to help explain the dimensions of all our different sized beds in both metric and imperial units. If you need a special high divan base we can also provide you with this service, so your divan base will stand at 20 inches high.
