Also be sure to measure the bed frame, if you already have one. This will also need to fit within the headboard. The general rule when measuring the height of the headboard is this: measure half way up the wall of the room where the headboard will be placed against. Your headboard should never exceed this height! Try to find a headboard that either reaches half way or down to a few inches below that point. This will prevent the headboard from "crowding" and overpowering the room.
The best part of these beds, however, are the many storage solutions they offer. Nearly any divan bed is available with drawers or cabinets built into the bed base. This is the perfect way to maximize storage space while keeping the rest of the room clutter free. Whether you want to stow your linens and towels, the kid’s clothes or seasonal items, divan bed drawers will give you all the room you need. And because they are built into the bed base, you don’t sacrifice the look of your furniture.
