The difference between a divan single bed and beds with frames is that divans are designed for the mattress to fit perfectly, rather than slot into a frame. This saves some centimetres in overall width and makes the bed fairly compact. What is more your new bed should ensure comfort and be a suitable space for rest and restorative sleep.
How long is a single divan bed? UK standard sizing for single divan beds
There is a standard length for a single divan bed in the UK. This makes planning your bedroom easier. Standard sizes mean you can choose from a wide array of bed sheets, blankets, duvets and covers and the bed will fit with ease into a small space. At Reinforced Beds, we use UK sizing for all our beds and mattresses.
In the UK, a standard single divan bed is normally 3 feet wide and 6 feet 3 inches long - in metric terms, that is 90 centimetres by 190 centimetres. The length of all standard bed sizes in the UK is the same. For example, a small single is 2 feet 6 inches wide (75cm) and a standard single is 3 feet wide (92cm), but both are 6 feet 3 inches in length.
Long-lasting quality in the commercial or care environments
We design all our beds for style, comfort and practicality, whether they are single divan beds for use at home or contract grade beds such as hospital beds and mattresses and care home beds and mattresses. The same quality applies to our commercial beds and mattresses for hotels and guesthouses.
With such a diverse customer base, we focus on the flexibility and adaptability of a customised product to suit your particular needs and space, with the possibility to 'mix and match' divan bases with a suitable choice of mattress.

We can also offer a tailor-made option for a divan base requiring extra height.
Many of our divan bed bases offer storage drawers. These are extremely useful where space is limited and enable you to store spare pillows or bed linen.
On our website you may opt for casters or gliders at the base of the divan, depending on whether you prefer to be easily able to transport the bed in a room or do not wish it to easily slide out of place.
You will find a wide range of headboards on our website for our divan beds. These may be made from metal or wood or upholstered for additional comfort. The range of our upholstered headboards enables you to style your bedroom using a choice of traditional or 'on trend' fabrics. What is more, you can easily remove and change the headboard when you change the decor.
Our aim is to offer the best quality and value for your lifestyle and requirements. We offer reinforced divan bases for our single as well as double beds and to ensure the best value for our customers and free delivery options and trade prices are available.
Creating a double bed with two single divan beds
You can fix two single divan beds together to create a comfortable double. This is particularly useful if you wish to have two separate types of customised mattresses. It allows for the requirements of each partner to be met, whilst ensuring a good night's sleep. It also offers valuable flexibility to hoteliers.
Rigorous requirements for commercial use
We use quality materials throughout the manufacturing process and all our divan bases have a suitable weight limit.
All beds and mattresses for contractual and commercial, rather than domestic, use are subject to additional regulatory guidelines with which furniture manufacturers must comply, such as ”Crib 5” fire regulations in the commercial and care sectors. Our products are not only built to withstand regular and frequent use but also meet strict requirements for durability, fire safety and other measures to ensure the safety and well-being of the users.
