At Sound Sleep we offer a wide selection of ottoman divan bases made by many different manufacturers.
Although their overall construction may be the same, the build quality, drawer quality and fabric quality will vary dramatically.
We don’t sell a cheap low quality divan base as these are false economy due to the poor quality materials used to keep the prices low.
Our cheapest ottoman divan base is a mid range divan base. This has a good build quality with beech lined solid wood sides and a beech lined base. The base is slatted on the underside so each half of the ottoman (4’0+ sizes) can take approximately 30-40kg of evenly spread weight. The gas struts are 600n struts and make light work of lifting up the mattress and are strong so the lid doesn’t crash down. Our bases are available in 20 standard fabrics and 20 luxury fabrics. With a wide selection of velvet, suede, crush velvet, wool, plush and linen style fabrics in every colour, we are sure we can find the base for you. We also supply a wide range of matching headboards to compliment our bases. We would advise popping in to store to select your colour, style and headboard.
These bases can be used with any mattress, though we would normally recommend buying a mattress and base together,
Why would we recommend these over a bedstead style ottoman base?
Our ottoman bases have a base and a solid top to them, so all your belongings inside are fully protected from dust. Bedsteads have slatted tops, so dust can go through on to your belongings. The solid base also means you can move the base without having to empty it! Many bedstead styles have a sheet in the bottom, so your items are on the bedroom floor!
Our divan ottomans also feature 4 gas struts (4’0+) which stops the lid crashing down. Some bedstead style bases fall with the slightest push and anything or anyone that is in its path will feel the weight of a mattress and base crashing down on them. They may also feature a leg in the middle, meaning there are areas you cannot put things as the leg is required for support. We do not stock these cheaper style ottoman bases. We do stock a collection of UK made ottoman bed frames which are available to view in store and on our website, these do have a slatted base but have a floor inside and the strength and quality is very impressive.
This model is available to view in both of our stores.
