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.
Having a headboard can add elegance and sophistication to your bed, it makes it look more inviting, more opulent.

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.
