This feature in it is because of presence of a curved headboard and footboard that is outwardly curled at each end’s top. This footboard is often found to be shorter than the headboard. History records suggest when these were used traditionally; it did have a feature imbibed in it because of which it could curl inwards as well as outwards. Those days they were known to be made of wood. The popular practice during this period was to place them in the centre of their rooms. The objective behind this was to highlight it as one of the primary pieces of furniture of that particular room. Generally, people took immense pride in showing their prized possession.
Divan beds are available in a size suitable for any bedroom, large or small. From a micro single to a super king, you can find a divan bed that is perfect for you. But that is only the beginning. Their true value is found in their customizability and their many storage options. You can go with a basic option of just the bed base and mattress and dress it up with your favorite cushions. Or you can dress it up more by adding a headboard or even a cornerboard to give your bed more of a sofa feel.
For a more relaxed atmosphere, you can find colors from whites, ivories and creams to pastel shades of green, blue and pink. Also look into choosing a fabric that matches other fabric colors in the room. As opposed to the more sedate, "sleepy" soft tones, don’t be afraid to venture onto the "dark side" and choose a darker and heavier fabric for your headboard. Darker fabrics work very well in a larger master bedroom that already is quite dramatic or romantic. Deep blues, magentas and greens can be very effective for getting this effect.
Cleaning your tufted headboard mainly depends on the material used. If you have a leather tufted headboard, you first need to determine the finish of the leather before proceeding with cleaning. If you have finished leather, you need to put a small amount of moisturizing soap on a damp cloth. Bring this to lather before rubbing on to the leather without using too much water. Wipe away the lather with a fresh damp cloth and then polish with a dry towel. Treat the leather with conditioner. If your leather is unfinished, you will need to use damp cloth or sponge to rub saddle soap onto the leather. Wipe away the lather and allow to air dry. Oil the leather with preservative to keep the quality of the leather. If you use fabric like canvas, there are a lot of spray-on cleaners available in the market. Otherwise, an option would be to use a dry cleaning agent and brush. On top of that, a vacuum will be handy to take out all dusts and cleaning residues.
Use artwork as a focal point - colourful prints in place of the headboard will not only serve to add the splash of colour you are seeking for the neutral walls of your bedroom but also create a focal point for the decor. You can use the colours in the picture to coordinate and match the accessories and fixtures of the entire room with great panache. Cabana style - opt for full length French style patio doors and windows in white for a Cabana style bedroom interior. A four poster bed with a net canopy will add the touch of authenticity to the decor. Keep the lines clean and simple for a classic look.
Printed fantasy - got an old printed sari you don’t know where to use? Make bedding out of it. Use patterned wallpaper in muted shades to complement it. For furniture, keep the lines simple, and to offset the bright patterns of the sari, use a neutral colour like white or cream. For flooring too, use a light shade, and throw an eclectic printed rug. Go green - and we mean it literally. The touch of green on the walls can be contrasted with serene accents of white for bedding, upholstery and even the drapes. Use wooden furniture to complete the look. Accents of white as well as black work equally well with this kind of decor scheme.
Over the years I’ve spoken with a number of people about the need for a smaller than twin size bed. Often these individuals are trying to find something that can work for a cabin, for a small room or a tight space where typical beds just don’t seem to fit. Another need I’ve heard is to try and maximize the number of beds that can be placed into one room. The solution would be a bed size less wide than a standard twin but would have the same length and we refer to this in the industry as a cot size.
So, if you’re planning a redesign of your bedroom or simply just want to create a guest room in the den, a divan bed is the perfect place to start. Divan beds can be built to fit any budget and any room’s needs. With their versatile looks and many storage options they will allow you to make the most of your space and to give it your personal touch. All you need to do is figure out which bedroom to start with because after you’ve had your first one, you’re going to want to get one for every room.
