Today we're looking at a divan base from the popular manufacturer Silentnight. For those unaware, Silentnight is one of the largest manufacturers in the UK, offering consistently impressive products that continue to offer a fair price point and impressive structure and comfort. While more focussed toward mattresses, Silentnight has branched out into bed frames, covers, quilting and divan bases with great success. Let's dive into the Silentnight Divan Base and see what makes it great.
The base material utilised behind the fabric coating is made of strong and durable wood, hollow in its design to allow for drawer and ottoman options to be easily integrated at point of production. Wood has been utilised in divan bases since their initial inception and offers a cheap and affordable option for those looking for a base for their mattress.
There are 4 different materials in the Divan Base range, however, you've got 2 different types, a basic and premium (known as enhanced) option. The divan base is the same regardless of material however the enhanced colours are a more rugged and durable fabric that is much harder wearing, offering texture and quality above the standard range. Personally, I think the Barley colour looks great.
Depending on the size you choose depends on the drawer options on offer. This is typical for the industry and what you generally find is that the larger the size, the more options you get. For example, a single divan base is available in no drawer and two drawer options while the king size gets you such options like no drawer, two drawer, four drawer and two + two continental drawers. Personally, I really like the 4 drawer and continental options which both offer a fantastic degree of versatility when it comes to storage, allowing you to keep your bedroom tidy for years to come.

Reasons to Buy
Great price point for a well known and branded product from a company you can trust.
Durable and high performance fabric that will stand the test of time.
Numerous happy customers and a high consumer satisfaction score.
Reasons to Avoid
I'd prefer a larger guarantee period, 1 year is the mandatory minimum and while most problems would typically rear their head within that period, it would still be nice to have seen a longer period of coverage. For the price point, this isn't unexpected, but all the same.
