What Makes It Great

Its a lovely solid bed, I love the colour of the frame and headboard. And was easy to assemble. The baskets seem nice quality and are also a nice colour to match the frame colour. My only issue is that the inside storage compartments are not finished like the frame (they are shown to be finished with the wood effect in the display pictures above, but this is not the case) as shown in the image I uploaded. It's a shame really as this one little oversight does ruin its aesthetic as it is noticable when walking into the room. To me anyway. Even just doing the bottom of the strage compartment, as that's what you see from head height wpuld have been something. So it gets a four instead of a five from me as overall love the bed and sleeping in it.

Answer: , The bed comes in 4 x packages. The longest boxes are those with the side rails (203cm for double and 213cm for King and Super King) and the broadest is the headboard (Double: 156cm x 105cm, King: 169cm x 105cm and Super King: 199cm x 105cm) Kind Regards, Dreams

The pictures show the inners are finished, but one reviewer has uploaded a pic that isn’t. Is the inner storage finished like the rest of the wood? 

Answer: , Thank you for your question. The image posted by another customer was unfortunately an anomaly, the finish on the inner storage sections is in a darker stain - but doesn't have the wood grain finish. Kind Regards, Dreams

Does this have a hard top base or slats?

Answer: , This frame has platform edges above the storage compartments and slats in the middle of the frame. Technical diagrams can be viewed online via the assembly instructions. Kind Regards, Dreams

Answer: , Unfortunately we don't stock any matching bedside tables for the Wilkes at the moment, but this is something we are looking at developing for the future Kind Regards, Dreams

Not the product we ordered

The colour when delivered was not as advertised in store or the website. If you order then expect the colour to be more accurate from looking at photos of Melbourne frame that Dreams sell. Perhaps there was some mistake at production and that wood/stain colour was used? It’s a more ‘fake wood’ appearance. Also the storage compartments under the bed are not finished/sanded/stained so the quality of the bed frame is just not up to standard. Expect to get splinters! I would not recommend this bed frame to anyone and we are extremely dissatisfied with the end product we received. Shocking really!


Rustic and Rubbish

Bed arrived yesterday. Upon opening the boxes the pieces looked worn and battered. Although I understand this is part of the rustic wooden look rushed and incomplete seems to be more like it. The holes for screws on the left side of the base does not align with the holes on the on end of the left panel and the thin wood panel on the top of the right side hangs over so you cannot fit the base in properly. Also the inside of the storage compartments appear to be unfinished and ruins the visuals of the bed. Only good thing was the mattress


Unique bed

This bed is unique compared to other wooden beds on the market. The bed provides good storage without compromising on style. The wicker baskets create a homely feel and make it easy to grab things like DVDs, chargers and books. Its great for the main bedroom or for a spare room to cater for guests by using the storage area to store towels. We think this is sure to compliment any home with a wow factor.


Great storage and solid bed.

We bought this bed after purchasing a bed from another well known,much more expensive store which turned out to be absolute rubbish and we sent it back and got a full refund. We then went and purchased this bed. We had to wait 6 weeks for delivery with it being a new design but I can honestly say that it was well worth the wait. It is absolutely solid,fabulous for storage and looks lovely.


Solid construction and nice looking

We were a bit worried when reading the mixed reviews, particularly the reviews mentioning the difference in colour from the photos. Initial impressions are good, the headboard seems solid and has a nice grain to it even if it isn't real wood, and the storage under the bed in the baskets has decluttered our room massively


stylish and great storage

This bed frame creates a really contemporary and minimalist feel to your bedroom. It's unique design means you have a really useful storage solution without having to compromise on the look - in fact the storage baskets only add to the style of this bed. A sturdy, well made and unique bed frame I would highly recommend.



This is the most beautiful bed frame I have seen. The storage is actually very generous. More so than it looks on the picture. It is very good quality and very well made. Delighted with my purchase. I paid for it to be put together for me but watched as they did it. Its very simple.


It’s a completely different colour.

Bed has just arrived. In the pics it looks a light colour, when I opened the box it’s dark brown. It is pretty much ready to go out of the box, but feels cheap like mdf, you will get splinters taking it out.


Storage Coupled with Style!

This bed frame has a solid and sleek design; coupled with extensive under bed storage and handy wicker storage baskets, this frame is perfect for making the most of the space in your bedroom.


The frame cracked after 3 months of buying!

Don’t recommend. Woke up in the middle of the night by a loud sound to discover that the whole frame cracked! Waste of money!



The bed is beautiful and it is lovely to have the storage it provides. We bought 2 months ago and we are very happy with it.
