What Size Divan Bed Should I Buy?

By Zenbedrooms @zen_bedrooms

If you are unsure of the size of divan bed you should buy, it may be because you are buying your first bed. Perhaps you have recently moved into your first apartment and have no idea about decorating and furnishings. Don't worry. It is actually quite easy to decide what size bed you should buy.
The first thing to consider is the size of your space. The smaller it is, the smaller your divan bed should be. A king size divan, for example, would be too big for a studio apartment, and a single divan bed would seem too small in a big, spacious master bedroom. You want to create balance. You want a bed that compliments the size of the room, big enough to stand out but not so big it swallows the room.
Second, you want to consider the number of people sleeping in it. Will you be sleeping alone or with your three kids and two dogs? Obviously, a higher number of people in the bed require a bigger bed. Also, take your future into account. Do you plan to marry or have children soon? If so, getting at least a double divan bed or possibly even a king size divan bed may save you a lot of hassle later.
Last, but certainly not least, consider your budget—and don't go over. Spending more than you planned can feel fine in the moment, but it is bound to be an issue later, especially if you have a whole room to furnish. A bunch of small, seemingly harmless purchases add up quickly, and you may find yourself regretting the fact that you did not stick to your budget. Your bed is where you spend a good portion of your life, so be sure to get the right one for you.
