What does the price for a Headboard and price for a Bedstead include?

Headboard: This is the headboard only and includes a fixing kit to attach to any Standard UK Divan.

Bedstead: This is the price for a complete bedstead including the head end, foot end and the base of your choice (slatted, universal, surround).

What do the different bases/frames consist of?

Slatted base: The base is made from heavy gauge steel and sprung beech wood slats, providing both strength and flexibility for added comfort.

Universal base: Again made from heavy gauge steel and beech sprung slats, this base has inbuilt feet at the end and does not require a foot end.

Surround frame: Two long rails that attach the head and foot end allowing a Divan Base to sit in the middle.

How strong are your bases?

Each base is extremely strong and has been tested to a weight of 250kgs on each side of the bedstead.

What do you mean by base height 14" and 17"?

This means that you can adjust the height of the base (slatted, universal or surround) to suit your requirements. This measurement is from the floor to the top of the base. Whilst 95% of our models have this option, some can only be set at 14" due to design constraints (Please see individual model details).

Will the base match the bedstead?

All painted bedsteads are supplied with an exact matching base. * Engineering restraints result in Brass, Nickel and Chrome bedsteads with supplied with a black base as standard.

I already have a Divan, can I buy a full bedstead to use with it?

Yes, you can order a full bedstead with a Surround Base; this allows the Divan to sit in the middle of it (See Frames). 95% of models allow the surround to be set at 17" giving15" clearance space so draws can be opened.
