Q: We are looking to replace our current bedstead and would like to change to a divan. We have a memory mattress that we want to keep. Can you advise us please on the type of divan base required for the mattress. Thank you Question from Eileen Taylor


We have two types of divan bases; Platform Top and Sprung Edge.

The platform top base is firm whereas the sprung edge base acts like a shock absorber.  Depending on how firm you want the overall feel to be will determine which base you choose.

Generally, the rule is, if your base is firm, choose a softer mattress and if your base is soft, choose a firmer mattress, to achieve a medium feel sleeping comfort
