Tests & Verdict

Here we collect tests, guides and product reviews so that you can create a picture of what others think about the product. This analysis and review is based on my experience and 12+ years of industry insight.

Affordable price point, ideal for spare rooms.

Stylish design that fits most rooms thanks to the multiple different colour options.

Assembly is relatively straight forward without too much difficulty.

Quite a low height frame.

Some sharp edges got through quality control and while painted over, could still catch on clothing and sheets.

Why our sleep experts loved it

If you are looking for a modern and stylish bed frame that won't break your budget then I would recommend considering the Abbey metal bed frame. I personally own this bed frame and can share my experience with it, as well as some pros and cons based on customer feedback. 

I ordered the Abbey metal bed frame online from Dreams after browsing their website for a while. Ultimately I was looking for a simple but elegant bed frame that would fit in one of my smaller spare bedrooms that would match my minimalist decor. I chose the grey colour option, but they also have white and pink available at the same price point.

The delivery of the frame was fast and efficient with it arriving within 2 weeks, at which point we took to work with assembly. That assembly was fairly straightforward, following the clear instructions and using the tools provided. The different size screws and washers were already sorted in a blister pack, which saved me a lot of time and hassle although we were missing one screw which meant affixing the head end was a bit more of a challenge.

I'm very happy with the end result as the bed frame looks great in my bedroom thanks to its sleek design which doesn't take up too much space or overwhelm the room. The metal is sturdy and durable but it doesn't squeak or wobble when I move around on it. The headboard and foot end are comfortable to lean against when reading or watching TV.

I opted for the solid slats option, which works fine for me as I have a medium-firm memory foam mattress that doesn't need much extra support. However, if you have a softer or heavier mattress, you might want to upgrade to sprung slats for more comfort and durability.

As far as final thoughts go, I would recommend the Abbey metal bed frame to anyone looking for a stylish and affordable option. It's a great choice for those with smaller bedrooms and minimalist decor, and the various colour options make it easy to match with your existing furniture.

Bed is beautiful. Bought for a 5 year olds first big bed, but would be equally suitable for a girlie teenager. Its pink but not Barbie pink. Delivery team excellent. There was a single hole missing in the slats which is required for assembly. We were able to drill this ourselves and Dreams compensated us adequately for the inconvenience. Contemplating the king size in a different colour for our own room. The star is removed only for the absence of the hole in the slats.

Amazing good quality and sturdy bed for the money. It was very easy to assemble following the clear instructions and the different size screws and washers etc are ready sorted on a blister pack. I purchased the sprung base instead of the slatted base and it was well worth the extra cost and again easy to fit. ut

This is a very good quality bed and looks really lovely too. I purchased a single bed in this style and it's great. I found it a little fiddly to put together, but overall not bad. Very sturdy when assembled and would be a great addition to any household for an everyday or guest bed. Highly recommended bed frame.

I am very pleased with this bed frame, it's exactly what I needed. It's the right height off the floor and its very sturdy. It doesn't creak at all like a lot of metal bed frames and I toss and turn all night long. I'm able to get a better night sleep because I purchased this bed frame.

Looks good. Took about 2 hours to build with one person. However came slightly damaged (two pipes were slightly dented) and the slats seemed quite low quality and prone to slipping around because theyre not secured into place being only screwed in at the ends not middle.

My son loves his new bed, he's definitely sleeping better and for longer. Being a chef he works long hours this means when his head hits the pillow comfort is a must. Assembling the bed frame was very easy for him with clear instructions. Thank you Dreams

Bed frame came as expected on time. Had to jiggle one of the legs to allow it to slide into position and one of the screw on bed slats, a bit of persistent and all built. Clear instructions. Happy with the bed frame

What weight can the single version of this bed carry? Is it the same strength as the Westbrook single? I need it for someone weighing around 100kg. Do both singles come with the central support leg like in the double of the Westbrook? Thanks.

Answer: All of the bedframes are tested to a minimum of 140KG. The single comes with a support leg for both the Abbey and Westbrook - for more information on this, please check out the assembly instructions in the overview section. Thanks, Dreams

I bought this bed recently for my daughter. There is one big problem with it - it is so creaky. Literally every time she moves in bed we can hear it creaking throughout the whole house. Any suggestions on how to stop this?

Answer: We would firstly suggest to ensure all the fixings are tightened, however you can call the customer service team to discuss this further.Thanks
