Choosing the right bed for you can be pretty overwhelming – there is so much conflicting information and tonnes of options. How do you choose? Well, we’ve put this guide together for you to help out.
Our brand focus today is Relyon divan beds, so if you were thinking of buying a Relyon then you’re in the right place.
Let’s start off with size. Sounds obvious, but getting the right size bed is fundamental to a good night’s sleep. It is recommended that your bed is at least 10cm longer than the tallest person to be sleeping in it, and both partners should be able to lay with their hands behind their head without elbows touching. As a quick point of reference here is a table with sizes and names.
|Small Single||2’6” x 6’3”||75cm x 190cm|
|Single||3’ x 6’3”||90cm x 190cm|
|Small Double||4’ x 6’3”||120cm x 190cm|
|Double||4’6” x 6’3”||135cm x 190cm|
|Euro Double||4’8” x 6’6”||140cm x 190cm|
|King||5’ x 6’6”||150cm x 200cm|
|King Zip & Link||2 x (2’6” x 6’6”)||2 x (75cm x 200cm)|
|Euro King||5’3” x 6’6”||160cm x 200cm|
|Super King||6’ x 6’6”||180cm x 200cm|
|Super King Zip & Link||2 x (3’ x 6’6”)||2 x (90cm x 200cm)|
OK, that’s size done, let’s look at Relyon divan beds storage options
The great thing about Relyon divan beds is they offer a number of storage solutions. As a brief overview here’s what they offer.
Non storage – this is your standard divan bed with no drawers in. Most people who choose this option don’t have the space to open drawers so opt to not have them.
Two drawers – You can either have two drawers on the same side (perfect for a bed against a wall) or one on either side (though for single beds they are always on the same side).
Four drawers – Two drawers on either side, offering excellent storage in your Relyon bed
2 + 2 Continental – this is a full sized drawer on each side at the foot end, and a half sized drawer on each side at the head end – ideal if you have bedside tables and still want access to all drawers
Ottoman base – the ideal solution if you are short on space around the bed, the top of the base lifts up giving you access to storage inside
There are also a number of Relyon divan beds base options, including
- Sprung base – open coil springing system in the base offering a slightly softer feel
- Platform top – this has a hard top, giving a firmer feel
- Padded top – similar to platform top, this base provides a slightly firmer feel with a top layer that is ventilated and upholstered with soft cushioning
The final option with Relyon divan beds will be the “ticking” – this is basically what your base is upholstered with. Relyon divan beds come with a fantastic range of ticking options, fabrics and colours so you can have a bed to suit your bedroom and style perfectly.
