About our bed frames
For over 20 years, The Original Bed Co has been making beds & bed frames which are durable, desirable and affordable. The bed frames we make are a homage to traditionally made beds. We use as many traditional techniques as we can to ensure that our bed frames are well made and designed to last a long time. All of our bedsteads come with a standard 5 year warranty so you can buy with confidence.
What is the difference between a bed frame and a divan?
Bed frames (or bedsteads) are an alternative to box springs or divans which are extremely popular around the world (especially in the UK). Bed frames have a number of advantages over divans but both types of beds have their place in the world. A bed frame includes a head end, a foot end and something to connect these two together. Our bed frames include a frame onto which you can put a mattress as standard.
Divans are a platform (whether sprung or flat) onto which you can place your mattress. They do not include a headend or footend and are less ornate in their designs. But some divans do come with headends. For more differences about bed frames and divans please visit our article on What is a bed frame?
What sizes of bed frames do you make?
Most of our bed frames are available in single beds (36" x 75"), full beds (54" x 75") and queen sized bed frames (60" x 78") sizes. Some beds are available in less common sizes such as small single (30" x 75"), small double (48" x 75") and 72" x 78". We are also able to customise some of our beds to the twin (38" x 75"), twin XL (38" x 80"), king (76" x 80") and california king (72" x 84") bed sizes. Some of our bed frames are adapted for European sizes as well. These sizes include 90cm x 200cm, 140cm x 190cm, 140cm x 200cm, 160cm x 200cm. We can customise the size of your bed in certain models
