Q: Can you put a latex mattress or memory foam on a divan bed? Question from Steve

A: You can put latex of memory foam mattresses onto a divan base.  The secret of having a good night’s sleep is the mattress and bed base you choose. Always remember that a ‘bed’ is a mattress and a base working together, you should not consider them in isolation and should ideally always try them together.  We always recommend you buy them together because the two are designed and manufactured to complement one another in terms of support.  Your mattress may show visible signs of wear and tear but the base will have had equal pressure and strain – it just doesn’t show quite so clearly.  Another point to watch is making sure the dimensions of any base and mattress separately sourced are compatible; two kings might not be quite the same size!
