Which Bed Base is Right for Me?

Choosing the right bed is made up of multiple crucial decisions: What mattress to choose? What size of bed is best for me? One other important question is: What type of bed base should I get?

We understand that the amount of choice out there can be overwhelming, which is why we’ve created this guide to help you understand exactly what options are available with an adjustable bed, allowing you can make an informed decision.

Do I Need a Bed Base?

You may even be thinking ‘do I need a bed base?’, the simple answer is - yes, you do! If your mattress is directly touching the floor without springs, or slats for ventilation, then you will get a build-up of moisture which will lead to mould. Something you’ll definitely be keen to avoid.

How Does an Adjustable Bed Base Work?

To support your back and hip health, we strongly recommend an adjustable bed base to experience your best night’s sleep to leave you feeling refreshed in the morning. How does an adjustable bed base work though?

An adjustable mattress features a motor within the bed frame that allows the bed to move in two parts, the sleeping surface and the joints. The sleeping surface is flat and sits under the mattress and the joints allow the users to change the bed's position. Oak Tree Mobility's beds go the extra mile with a 5-point slatted base, crafted from uniquely strong and flexible kiln-dried beech wood. This helps you to enjoy unlimited variations in position all at the touch of the simple remote. 

There are also additional accessories you can explore to help support safety and comfort. 

The&nbsp;Oak Tree Mobility&nbsp;<b>Bed Bases</b>

Oak Tree Mobility offers three types of Divan bases. Read on to find the best one for you…

Luxury Divan

Our Luxury Divan bed base is by far the most popular choice. Its regal-like elegance will make you feel and sleep like a king or queen, as well as fitting perfectly within any interior.

This bed base is made up of a four-part surround, including a headboard, footboard and two side panels. The footboard and headboard offer extra security and the mattress sits two inches below the side panels, providing a more secure mattress position.

This bed base is the essence of pure luxury, the extra padded sides provide superior comfort and plush sophistication.

This base is also completely detachable, so it’s really easy to assemble and reassemble. This base also has lockable castors as a standard, to prevent the bed from moving.

You can mix and match styles of header and footer and material to suit your unique interior and tastes. For your storage options, you can also choose the number of drawers that you want in your bed base.

Classic Divan

The Classic Divan is our most affordable bed base and embodies a traditional Divan. The base is split into two horizontal pieces (an East-West split), secured with a metal bar. This means you can easily move it around.

The k-frame sits in line with the bed base, this makes it easy to get in and out of bed.

The Classic Divan features a simple padded bed base, with a removable headboard. Mix and match headboard shapes, fabric and castor types to make your ideal bed, that perfectly blends in with your tastes and interior. You can even choose the number of drawers that are installed in your Divan bed base, offering you that classic Divan storage space.

This bed is fitted with a metal retainer at the end, so that your mattress doesn’t move around, giving you a more relaxing and worry-free sleep.
