The-Dreams-Workshop

The Dreams Workshop first cropped up a few years ago, being sold exclusively through the Dreams retail website, the brand was established to offer a range of in-house products that were built and designed from the ground up by the team at Dreams HQ. The brand has UK roots, with all mattresses being manufactured right here in England using the latest in technological advances to create both traditional and hybrid rolled mattresses. The value proposition of The Dreams Workshop is in its ability to cut out middleman costs thanks to its direct link with the retailer, allowing for a more premium product at a reduced price point for the consumer. Pay particular attention to the rolled series of mattresses now coming out in the range, where the consumer wins again with savings on logistics and shipping being able to be passed down in even better prices.

Therapur Owner Satisfaction

You’ll be in good hands with Therapur, having over 12,000 positive reviews to date and with many more flowing in each day, it’s easy to see that many customers appreciate the quality and cost make-up of these mattresses. Customers particularly enjoy the gel comfort layer, something you don’t often get elsewhere. This gel layer keeps you cool while you sleep and is an ideal barrier that sits between the springs and your body to give you a refreshing and soft nights sleep that is suitable all-season long.

Unlike memory foam varieties, there are no substantive reports of people waking up through heat build up and night-sweats although there have been some complaints around getting the right tension. Fortunately the Therapur umbrella of products all come with a 40-night sleep guarantee which ensures customer satisfaction or replacement for a more suitable model.

Therapur Durability

Durability remains impressive for the Therapur line up, however, we were disappointed with the 1 year guarantee often quoted on many of the mattresses, particularly given the non-budget price tag associated with the products. That said, many settlement and durability issues that do crop up with all mattresses are often due to a manufacturing defect which will typically appear within that first year of ownership. As such, the one year guarantee, while not ideal, doesn’t seem to be causing anyone to be “caught out”.

Beyond the guarantee, durability itself seems to be good provided manufacturer care instructions are adhered to in the form of frequent rotation to ensure adequate and even settlement of fillings and springs. Failure to comply with the rotation guidelines for Therapur products can result in uneven settlement which is best avoided.

Generally, Therapur mattresses are hard wearing and durable with the combination of good quality pocket springs, hard wearing cover and gel comfort layer pairing fantastically to offer ultimate comfort that lasts.

The-Dreams-Workshop Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Satisfaction is where this brand really strives, amassing an impressive number of reviews coupled with high feedback ratings. We see customers particularly happy with the tension on offer throughout the lineup, with sleepers enjoying the measured and even support throughout the layer. Pocket spring options tended to perform more favourably, leaving customers satisfied more than some of the open coil variants. That said, price point is one of the driving factors for consumers of this particular brand and people appreciate the compromise.

The-Dreams-Workshop Supportiveness

From the Maitland Pocket Spring through to the Turner Traditional Spring Mattress, there’s more than enough support on offer to ensure your back and neck is adequately supported. Most of the range is of the firm variety with a handful of medium firmness sprinkled throughout the lineup. Customers were particularly impressed with the support with many commenting on the relief experienced with their new Dreams Workshop mattress. We would generally recommend the pocket spring offerings over the traditional spring variants for increased longevity and improved edge to edge support.

The-Dreams-Workshop Durability

Durability is not typically a concern with any of The Dreams Workshop, with numerous long-term reviews finding that the product stands the test of time. For those looking to get more lifespan from their product, consider a dual sided mattress from within the range as these models have twice the surface area to sleep on which improves settlement of springs and helps decrease wear on the fillings. One downside we have come across with the brand is around the guarantee which is limited to only 1 year, typically brands have started moving away from this minimum amount to the satisfaction of customers. At the same time, problems typically appear within that first year at a much higher rate than in the years that follow, at which point many customers will still find this type of guarantee to be suitable and inline with expectations, particularly given the impressive price points.

Let me start by saying that since my first night of sleep on Sat 8 October 2016 with my new bed from Dreams I have slept well and woken fresh ready for the day ahead. However the whole experience started the week before when I stepped into the Dreams store at Colne Valley Retail Park in Watford. I had just moved into the area and was saying with my son's familiy until I moved into my own flat on 8 Oct. I was out shopping for a new bed and was accompanied by my grandson and daughter in law. We were made welcome as soon as we approached the store. A local radio station together with an England international rugby player was at the store. My grandson won a Dreams bear and played some computer games before meeting the international and having a picture taken with him; a great keepsake. This allowed me plenty of time to choose the right bed. I was impressed by the knowledge of the assistant and at no time was there even a hint of pushiness or oversell. My final selection was to plum for the Rapport Acti D Matress with a two draw base. This mattress and base was in stock, this was a stipulation because I needed it delivering to my new flat on 8 Oct. I was told there would be a delivery charge which included assembling the bed and removing any waste (great, saves me the job). I gave my address and then I received the first negative of the day. "Sorry the delivery van is full we cannot deliver to you next Saturday". What! it's midday the week before and you cannot deliver. I felt like walking straight out. People work and Saturday is the most convenient time for most people to take a delivery of such a large item. How many other customers would be told the same thing and how many sales would they loose. With a full week to go surely they could hire another van in. At £45 per delivery, would it cost that much? It was at that point that I had an idea. I could pop over to High Wycombe to pick up the bed from the Dreams warehouse with my hire van before I started moving to my flat. It would set me back an hour or so but at least I would have my bed on the first night and I saved the £45. On the 8 Oct my son and I set off for for the warehouse in good time to arrive as it opened, which would give us good start for the moving day. We were met by a nice chap who took my invoice and asked us to back the van up to the doors. A short time later he returned and asked if we were only there for the mattress as they did not have the two draw base. What! no I said we are here for both and they should both in in stock. With all that had to be done that day, this was not what I wanted to hear. He was away for about 30 minutes before returning with a smile ... he had found it. Ummm strange I though to myself. The move went well and towards the end of the day it was time to assemble my bed. Everything was straight forward until I tried to open one of the base draws. I eventually managed to open it only to find that the right hand side runners were damaged. I left the draw out of the base and would ring up about it on the Monday. It may be me being a little cynical but did the warehouse know it was faulty. I made up the bed and despite all the hassle of the day, I had a great nights sleep. I slept like a log, the bed felt fantastic. I informed Dreams about the defective draw runners and whilst I could of insisted on a new base unit, I just asked them to send out a new set of runners. They were sent out quite quickly and it only took me 10 minutes to change the runners over. Everything is now spot on. So that's my experience from start to finish. I need another bed for the second bedroom, would I go back to Dreams? well yes I would. The mattress is great and providing they can do me a good deal, deliver on time and rectify any faults within a reasonable time, why not. The positive to come out of this is that I do have a good product and I was left to decide without any added pressure. I just hate being jumped on when purchasing goods and in this respect Dreams were 100% good.

I have been using this mattress for about a month now, and it is in truth, the best mattress I have ever slept on. I'm a restless sleeper, and while I fall asleep on my front, I wake up on my side so I really need something where I can lie on my shoulder without it feeling like it was getting trapped or pinched underneath me. The mattress provides just the right amount of support and softness that I can move onto my side in the night, sink into the mattress with my shoulder (but not too much at my hip), and not be aware of it or wake up, which was a problem I had with my old mattress. The ActiGel layer is a nice feature that helps regulate the temperature in the bed and stops me from overheating. Just imagine that cool side of the pillow feeling but on your mattress. So far the rebound on the memory foam has also been fantastic, I've had memory foam products in the past where they've started to sag pretty quickly, thankfully that doesn't seem to be the case here. I am rotating the mattress top to toe every week as directed so that may have an impact. I have no complaints at all with the mattress, and am over the moon with it, but some possible points for readers to be aware of: - The ActiGel may not be for everyone, if you feel the cold more then I think this might not be your cup of tea. If that sounds like you I would definietly recommend going into a store and trying the mattress out before buying. - There is a little bit of a smell when you first start using the mattress, I assume from the ActiGel layer, but this has already disappeared from mine after a month of use. Overall I am very satisfied - super comfortable mattress that I look forward to sleeping on every night, worth the money.

Having already bought a mattress of a well known make from a well known retailer that unfortunately did not live up to it's claim by the manufacturer and my wife was unable to sleep on it from the first night, i was therefore unsure about going into a large business park retailer like Dreams because to be honest we had no idea as to what we should be buying. After a few minutes a member of the sales asked if we needed some help, after a brief discussion we were shown to, what looked like two single beds pushed together with a canopy, turns out it was a device that when we laid on it the sensors in the mattress measured all sorts about the wife and myself and all we had to do was lay there and look up at a screen on the canopy that gave us instructions. After a few minutes it produced what type of mattress we should buy, so our sales lady showed us a selection from one end of the price scale to the other, we were given a couple of lush pillows and were told to try out as many mattresses as we wanted. After a while the wife and i agreed on the TheraPur and our sales lady told us that delivery could be done in two days, she explained about their insurance which for the money is fantastic so i added that, just to finish off i also bought two of those lush pillows. I spent 3 times what the other mattress cost but from night one it has been faultless, everything our sales lady had told us was spot on, i only whished i had gone to dreams first.

Very practical and useful addition to the bed. Would highly recommend as an easy-to-wash solution to save having to keep replacing stained mattresses over-frequently/ You wouldn't even guess it's there with how inconspicuous and low-profile it is. Very good quality all round. Haven't had any "emergencies" with it yet, but I'm hoping it's up to the job when it gets a bit hot in the summer! The only criticism I have - which is why it narrowly misses out on 5 stars - is that the elastic straps are a pain to get to stay on; at least when changing sheets/moving the mattress. We have a 11" thick mattress (which is well within the depth limit the protector fits) and spend the most part of changing the sheets just trying to get the elastic to stop "ping"ing back off and not trapping/scraping fingers in the process holding it in place while we set the mattress back down. I'm happy to concede that this may just be a design/scenario limitation - we have a double-sided mattress; perhaps single-sided fare better with the backing they have? I'm not sure what improvements, if any, could be made to the elastic to give it some more friction and save me time and injuries! Other than the minor inconvenience/pain - all round brilliant product and a superb idea for everyone to get on board with to save your beautiful mattress from unsightly stains and germs.

My partner and I used the Sleepmatch service and were advised to go for a 'firm' rated mattress. We tried a few, having had a pillow-top SilentNight mattress for the previous 9 years, we were suprised to find that we both preferred the feel of this TherPur mattress, which was rated as 'extra firm'. Although we were nervous as we had never heard of this brand, we decided to go for it as we were covered under the 40 night guarantee and the mattress has good reviews online. We've been sleeping on this mattress for two weeks now and we are converted. From the first night, the mattress has been so comfortable for us both and we've been sleeping very well. It's also much lighter in weight than our old SilentNight so it's so much easier to turn and really get the fitted sheets tucked in tight. Cannot say if the ActiGel is doing much to keep us cooler at this stage as it's the middle of winter and the nights are colder anyway! But the mattress itself is great. If you need/like a firm mattress, I'd really recommend giving this one a try. As for Dreams, they were brilliant from start to finish, even price-matching the mattress as it went on sale before it was delivered to us. The delivery was perfect and the guys that delivered were polite and came within the time that they said. Our old mattress was taken away as well. We are very happy customers.

THE GOOD: - Amazing build quality, feels very sturdy! - Incredible storage space. - Looks the part. Certainly looks more expensive than it is, even at this price point. I absolutely love this bed! Such a great purchase. I was looking to replace my existing cheap and creaky Ottoman with something more substantial. Browsing online I came across a few Ottoman's in a Dreams promotion so head down to the store to see them in person. This item wasn't in the promotion, but the quality of it vs. the others immediately surprised me and I went over budget to pay for it. The Oatmeal colour was lovely but given I have a darker carpet I wanted a darker colour but was worried the Slate would be too dark. Store colleagues have swatches for their bed frames so it's worth popping into store if you're not sure. The build quality of this bed is really really good. You really do get what you pay for and given you spend so much of your life in bed, it's worth the extra. The arms which hold the bed base and mattress are made from a solid metal. None of this cheap aluminium stuff you'd find at cheaper price points. The storage area is huge! It utilises 4 base boards sat on top of a cross-beam. The space inside is a little less than Dreams claim in the dimensions, but will happily fit plastic storage boxes up to 42 litre capacity (from places like B&M). After all that there's even then some room beneath the bed to slide a few things under it too. The beds component parts came in 5 boxes and are quite heavy so you'll probably need two adults to put this together (King size). It took us about 2 hours to construct it. There's certainly plenty of screws etc so you can be sure it'll be sturdy. Given COVID etc there was quite a wait on this and so I ordered it and patiently waited the 3 and a bit weeks for delivery. The delivery experience was good, with updates by text and email and a phone call on the day. I live on the first floor and the team were happy to bring the items in to the flat for me which really helped. My first nights sleep on this bed was a breath of fresh air vs the old frame. I could tell the difference immediately. In my opinion a solid base such as this or a divan is a much better option versus a slatted base. A platform base doesn't tend to wear as much on one side - especially if you're a single person or have a heavier sleeper on one side of the bed vs the other. THE BAD: The assembly instructions for this bed say you need 4 metal plates to join the two base boards together when in actual fact there is only enough screw holes on the bottom for 2 plates. The instructions are wrong here and had us hunting through all the boxes for a while before we figured that out. Perhaps they need updating Dreams? Secondly, the two base boards were actually missing 8 screw holes on the underside where the little plates should go. These plates basically keep the two based boards attached at the join. While there were markings where the screws should go, it was as if the manufacturer forgot to drill them. Fortunately this didn't impact the frame to the point I couldn't sleep on it but I still wanted to get it resolved. I emailed Dreams and after a few days had no response. Chasing this up by calling customer services, the young lady on the phone was very apologetic and helpful, although I often struggled to hear her through the background noise of her home working environment which she didn't seem too bothered by. Unfortunately, the resolution is where Dreams let me down. I now have to wait 3 and a bit weeks to get the matter resolved. Dreams are ordering two replacement base boards from the manufacturer which is going to take another 3 weeks. Come on! Poor show. The reason this annoys me so much is the fact that if it had been a major issue with the bed I'd have been sleeping on the floor for those 3 weeks. That'd have been less than ideal if I was a vulnerable person or something?! I've already waited 3 weeks for this bed and - in actual fact - all it needs is 8 pilot holes screwing into the bed to get the screws to grip the wood. I feel the current boards will simply be scrapped and go to landfill after this when they're perfectly fine. I said I was happy to drill those in, but I didn't want to void the warranty. Sadly Dreams wouldn't approve that, which I suppose is understandable. SUMMARY: Amazing bed, 100% recommend. Amazing built quality. You'll sleep well. Hopefully yours will be fully complete and you'll have no issues.

Ordered this bed for our spare bedroom having spent a long time researching brass bedframes online and which one we thought might look best and be of decent quality. We opted for the Jackson bed frame in the end from Dreams. Seemed a great compromise between cheap & potentially nasty £200 brass bed frame from multiple online retailers & a £1,500 high end one from Feather & Black for example, that would have blown our budget, albeit would have looked potentially fantastic. I built it up myself (one person) with some engineering solutions to counter the fact that my wife was unavailable to assist that day & I couldn't wait to show it off to her! It was hard graft unpacking the bed which was well wrapped (there is a lot of recycling to do afterwards as the cardboard boxes are massive) but a relatively straightforward build, albeit took me about 3-4 hours on and off with breaks on a day off & the radio on in the background to chill out. We got ours with the slatted bed base, which also needed built up too. That was also relatively straightforward & I did it solo too but I am glad we have fairly big rooms. My wife did give me a hand lifting this on to the frame mind you, it is not heavy but awkward and I didn't want to damage the brass frame so you would need two folk for this bit I think. We have still to buy a decent quality mattress & some new bedding to complete the look, so all in we shall be spending a fair whack of cash on this bed but it looks great and I think will be around for 25 years (I hope). The spare room we have put it in has been decorated with some lovely floral prints in brass frames and my wife thinks it looks really lovely. I will add some photos once we have got the mattress & bedding as I appreciated being able to see how the bed looked in peoples' homes prior to us buying it. Technically, we or our guests post-Covid have yet to actually sleep on this bed frame yet but it seems well constructed, solid and non-squeaky if built correctly. Also, the delivery drivers were two very nice fellas and carried the bed to the room of our choice ready for unpacking, first time we have used Dreams and they seem to have a decent customer service model and want to ensure repeat custom, which is how all good business models work. You can pay another 50 quid for assembly but I enjoyed toiling away & doing everything properly, my DIY skills are average but if you take you time, you will be fine, so don't be scared of taking this part on & you can buy yourself a few bottles of wine with the 50 quid instead!

I bought the i200 from the Chandler's Ford branch, in Southampton from a very wonderful and honest sales rep called Katie. I was buying this for my sons room, as he often sits in bed (like most youngsters) and plays the Xbox with his friends. Also, if he's unwell, it will help to prop him up. I was apprehensive about buying because it was to sit within my sons existing, wooden, bed frame; I didn't want the mechanical base exposed. So I went away, measured up the wooden frame and returned to the store the following day to check against the i200. All seemed well and Katie was very confident it would fit. With that the purchase was made. I had to wait a month due to it being new / shipped. It arrived today and be warned, it's heavy! 81kgs in its box. I got the delivery men to leave it downstairs and I was going to carry it up later, assuming it might be in two parts; I was wrong. I took it out of the box and the wife and I managed to carry it (stair by stair) upstairs, separate to the additional bits within the box. If needed it will part in to two frames which are held together by two swivel nuts and bolts. You have a choice of legs at either 3", 6" or combine the two for 9". I went for the 6" legs as that suited the wooden frame best. From there it's a simple case of screwing on the legs, plug in the front motor (the back motor is already plugged in) and plug in the transformer - done! Again beware that this is a two man job when lifting and shifting. Once it was flipped and on its legs I was then able the push it into the wooden frame. I took one side of the wooden frame off for ease and replaced once the i200 was in place. If the rooms big enough you could just simply lift the outer frame over the top and drop it in place. Very simple, very comfortable and my son loves it. The remote looks and works great, with buttons that light up when in use. I believe you can control the bed via an app on your phone too, as the instructions state. I'm now considering buying one for the wife and I as we're due a new bed. On that note, I'd imagine the i200 works best with a foam mattress as I wouldn't think a spring mattress would last too long being manipulated by the up and down motions. All in all, a fantastic product and excellent service from Dreams, hense the long review being worth my time! Ps. I've included some photo's that may help a potential future buyer. Kind regards, Mark Roberts

I bought the item a month ago, it took about 15 days to arrive ( what I think was a bit long but its it's ok, sometimes the production takes more time than we wanted). The bed is easily assembled, what puts off the need of a person assembling it for you. I've purchased the brown mocha color, the color would match with other furniture and also it hides eventual stains of caused with the time (take that in consideration when buying: darker colours are always better than lighter when close to the floor). The height of the bed is something that might scare some people but is definitely a good thing, the lower the bed the closer to the floor, for people with allergies "the higher the better" is a truth. Also for elderly people or people with some mobility problems ( or just normal people after a couple of pints on the might before) higher beds makes it easier to get out of it and also to lay on it. The fabric seems a bit fragile but it's not a thing that will be under friction so it does last for a while. Just on the drawers that I believe could be another material or at least reinforced somehow. Regarding the drawers they are nice and aligned with the bed surface, avoiding the rush of stepping on by mistake (and breaking by mistake too). It does slides smoothly although the interior sides could be a bit higher, increasing the volume capacity of it. The fact of having two on the same side makes it easier to use it in a corner without loosing any drawer. It is easy to move it since it doesn't weight much, the use of pinus makes it lighter and the structure frame is set in a way that takes advantage of pinus, without look fragile as the majority of minus bedframes. The castors are also a good thing since makes it really easier to me pushed/pulled to a different position or room. Regarding the company, I have no complaints at all nor about the customer service nor about the delivery team. Just remember that it was my experience and might be different according to different teams/customer assistant. I definitely recommend this item if you want something on this range of price and some quality associated. If you are not sure don't buy it online, call them tell them your concerns and if you still not sure I believe they might have physical stores where you can see . A good service is also related to you awareness of the product/service.

We had put off replacing our old bed for a few years because we were sceptical of what appeared to be available on the market. Our old bed had done us well lasting well over 10 years (prob 15 if truth be told). Anyway one fateful day put an end to the bed, it's days had been numbered and with a bang and a crash the foot board decided it wanted to go its own way rather than stay with the remainder of the bed. Now we were forced into choosing another bed. The dread of having to spend hours on the Internet all of a sudden became real. Lockdown was well and truely established.. We were in over our heads and compelled to seek a suitable replacement. The journey started! As it happened it was a short journey. Tapping our requirements into the search revealed a select few beds advertised by several companies. Narrowing our search by size then availability whittled the options down further and with a final flourish of colour and optional storage hey presto we were left with a choice of 2. This bed search was easier than we had imagined - mercifully. Comparing the 2 beds left us with no option and we left the 'great 1 time sale, limited availability with free luxury pillows all the way from our warehouse in Italy' and settled for our Dreams supplied bed. Navigation through the Dreams website was a breeze, floating through the useful guides and information made sure that the options chosen were indeed what we were after. A final click and we were at the payment page. Details entered and delivery arranged hey presto we had bought a new bed. Follow up emails from Dreams made sure that we were kept up to date with the date and approximate time of delivery. Delivery day came and there was relief that the bed arrived before the advised time. A quick tour of the assembly instructions was followed by an uneventful build of the bed. All fastenings present, clear instructions and before we knew it ta daaa..the bed was assembled. No fuss, no scratching of heads and no cursing!!! Quality of parts exceeded expectations and the final item looked and felt great. The mattress was loaded onto the bed and a well deserved comfort test followed shortly afterwards. We have now had the bed for a few weeks and we can definitely say that all our reservations about buying a new bed were very much laid to rest. Great choice, exceptional quality and good value.
