Choosing a bedstead or four-poster bed over a divan is a matter of style, as both allow the same mattress choice and can provide equivalent support. And So To Bed offers wooden, metal, painted, upholstered, leather and caned bedsteads; Simon Horn is known for traditional French styles; Feather & Black has a wide range of traditional and modern beds; and Beaudesert makes elegant four-posters. Bed Bazaar sells restored antique and period- style metal bedsteads, and its sister company, Sleeping Partners, makes mattresses to fit.
Visco-elastic foam, also known as memory foam, is currently enjoying popularity. This synthetic material quickly conforms to the sleeper's shape so that hips and shoulders sink in, but support is maintained under the spine, keeping it correctly aligned. Dispersing the body weight away from the pressure points is its particular benefit. One of the side effects of visco-elastic foam is that it holds body heat, making the bed very warm. Sleepers usually find they need a lower tog duvet or less bedding, but body temperature can be regulated by choosing a mattress from a company such as Breasley, that has a cover which employs Coolmax technology.
The other main base option is a bedstead, which supports the mattress on flat slats or on more responsive sprung slats. Solid bases or slats are a good choice for memory foam or mixed foam/spring mattresses. If a bedstead comes with the option of an upholstered base unit, this will be far preferable under a pocket-sprung mattress and will offer similar comfort and support to a sprung-edge divan.
