When it comes to finding the right 2ft 6 divan bed with a mattress, there are many things to consider. From size and comfort to style and budget, finding the perfect bed for a child or adult with a smaller stature can be challenging. To make sure you get the best bed and mattress for your needs, here are some things to keep in mind.

Why Choose a 2ft 6 Divan Bed With a Mattress?

Opting for a 2ft 6 divan bed with a mattress included has a lot of benefits, from the cost savings associated with a smaller bed to the added utility of more space in the bedroom. Most adults can comfortably sleep in these beds, which makes it an ideal option for guest rooms or smaller bedroom setups. Divans also have the added benefit of providing you with additional under-bed storage, further adding to the utility and space-saving qualities of this type of bed.

It’s also a good idea to buy your mattress alongside your divan bed because you know they will fit together perfectly. What’s more, you can sometimes find discounted rates if you buy the bed and mattress as a package, which is great news for your budget!

Size Matters

One of the most important factors to consider when buying this type of divan bed is the size. It’s slightly smaller than a standard bed, so you'll want to make sure you buy the right size for your needs. Measure the area you plan to put the bed in and make sure the bed and mattress will fit without being too cramped. Also make sure that the person using the bed is going to have enough space to lie down on the bed.

Comfort Considerations

Comfort is also an important factor to consider when buying this type of bed. Some people prefer a softer mattress to sink into, while others are more fond of a firm mattress. You'll also want to check the bed frame for any squeaks or creaks that could be disruptive to a good night's sleep.

Is it the Right Style?

Style and aesthetics are an important part of choosing any bed, so make sure your divan bed fits the bill in this department. You should consider the different styles and colours, so you'll be able to find something to match the décor of your bedroom and accentuate the current look.

Get the Right Upholstery Colour

Divan beds are a great option for many because the upholstered base adds a nice aesthetic to the bedroom space. What's more, you can pair the colour scheme of the upholstery with your existing interior decor, which is definitely something to consider when choosing your divan bed. Take the time to think about what colour would pair well with the existing colour scheme and other furnishings in the bedroom. You might also want to think about what type of fabric you're looking for, as the right fabric can really amplify the look of the room.

Consider a Headboard

If you’re buying a divan bed with a mattress, it might be worthwhile to also consider whether or not you want a headboard with it. Many bespoke divan beds come with the option of including a headboard. Headboards can do wonders for adding a sense of luxury to your bedroom setup, and it offers a bit more comfort when sitting up in bed. However, there’s an extra cost attached to a headboard, so if you’re on a tight budget it might be wise to give the headboard a miss.

Different Storage Types

Almost all divan beds will provide you with some extra storage, but there are a few different types of storage to think about. In most cases, divan beds feature storage drawers on one or either side of the base. However, some divan beds are designed to incorporate an ottoman-style storage setup. So consider which type suits your needs best when browsing divan beds, as drawers might not be as useful if you're dealing with limited space.

Think About the Depth of the Divan Bed Base

One aspect that’s often overlooked is the depth of the divan bed base, as there’s a fair bit of variety in this area. So make sure that you consider the depth that you’ll want and what you can fit in your bedroom space. If you opt for something that’s too deep, then your bed will be closer to the ceiling and can make the space seem too small. Also, a lower divan base bed can look great in rooms with lower ceilings, so it’s something to consider.

Does it Work With Your Budget?

The final factor to consider when buying this bed type is budget. Since this size of bed is designed with fewer materials than a standard bed, you may be able to find a good deal on a quality bed and mattress. This gives you a bit more headroom to look at some of the different styles as your budget will stretch a little farther.


When looking for the perfect 2ft 6 divan bed with mattress, you'll want to take into consideration size, comfort, style and budget. Make sure the bed and mattress will fit in your bedroom and provide the necessary comfort for the user. Choose a style that fits the décor of your bedroom and find a good deal on the bed and mattress to fit your budget. Taking the time to consider all of these factors will ensure you get the perfect bed and mattress for your needs.
