What Makes The Ava Metal Bed Frame Great

When I redecorated my bedroom, i picked everything in lacquered, light wood and whites. I would have liked a wooden bed, but I have a cat, so I had to go for a metal frame or he would have used it as an additional scratch post. I'm telling you this so that you'll realise that when I bought it, this frame was kind of a "plan b", the choice I HAD to make due to my pet, rather than something I truly liked. However, once it was delivered, my attitude towards it quickly changed. It's a very solid frame, no wiggling, no squeaking, no defects of any kind and I paid for assembly so it was also solidly put together. It was one of the cheaper frames, so I re-invested the saving into buying good sprung slats (an add-on that I would advise you to get if you can afford the extra cost) and a truly exceptional mattress. This combination has outperformed all my expectations, I have the best bed I've ever had in my life. I am so glad that I decided to pop into Dreams to see what they offered, as otherwise I would have had to buy everything online, without trying it, and I doubt that I would have achieved the same results. I didn't give it a perfect score because the feet are simply raw steel (painted, obviously), without any feature that would prevent scratching your wood/laminate floor when the bed inevitably needs to be moved. however I obviously solved that problem by buying some large felt pads, which fit it perfectly. So, it's a handsome frame, it's sturdy, solid yet cheap, so as long as you like the design and colour, choosing it is a no-brainer.

Looks great in my cottage

I was looking for a white metal bed frame that would look nice in my cottage. This bed is well made, sturdy, and looks amazing. It's a clean white colour and the details on the bed look pretty. I went for the sprung slat base and this was a good choice despite the extra money as it makes the mattress feel softer and more comfortable. It was relatively easy to assemble, although there were a few points where two pairs of hands were needed. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and it took about an hour to put together.

Perfect nights sleep!

If you are looking for a comfortable bed, with a nice metal frame finish and at a bargain price, well this is the product for you. This won't cure any back ailments you may have, but it will most certainly help. As a sciatica sufferer for many years, I have systematically been looking for a mattress that could help my lower back pain---to no avail, until I found and purchased this bed. I have never had a great nights sleep, until now and I would highly recommend this to all back pain sufferers 10/10

Lovely bed, charming design

I've had this bed for a couple of weeks and it's one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. There's plenty of storage space underneath and although some reviews say the frame creaks I haven't heard a peep from mine as of yet. Assembly didn't take too long either, between the two of us working together we put it up relatively quickly with little to no problems, although some of the bolts underneath are a bit fiddly to screw in. All on all, lovely bed that makes my bedroom so much nicer.

3

Bed frame

Nice looking bed frame but unlike a similar one I bought from Dreams before, the bed has no central support bar which makes the base of the bed seem a little flimsy. I think it's more like a children's bed rather than an adults but time will tell if it's going to stand up to weight or if the lats will snap. I am glad i bought the frame in the sale or may have considered returning it.

5

Lovely bed frame, and very comfortable

I bought this bed a week ago and so far am very happy with it. It was easy to assemble, looks really nice, and seems sturdy. I had worried that a metal bed frame might creak but there has not been a squeak so far. I have slept very well and would definitely recommend this bed. I had a wooden frame before, but this white frame definitely makes the room seem lighter and brighter.

5

Very comfortable and promptly delivered

So happy with this bed and the service we received from dreams. The bed was taken into the room I needed it in and arrived on time. This was very important as I hadn't left much contingency for when our guests arrived. The delivery guys even gave us hints for assembly. My husband had since sleepy in it (was in the dog house that night) and has said it was very comfy.

5

Pretty Frame

Such a pretty bed frame! Currently doing my room up due to having more time during lockdown, and honestly could not be happier with it. I’m 23 years old, not the best at DIY and was able to put this bed together by myself in about 2 hours. Easy to assemble, and I’m sure would be even easier with 2 people. Very sturdy as well, one happy customer!

3

Lovely Bed frame, shame about the paint chips

The bed frame came packaged very well and all the components were there. Assembly instructions were very straight forward and the bed was built in no time at all. Overall the bed frame is of good build and quality of material seem very good. There were a couple of paint chips and the weld in one place not the best which was disappointing.

5

Beautiful bed very easy to put together

Bought this bed for my eldest daughter who needed a new one. Previously we had bought from a different company but the quality of that bed was very poor. This one is lovely! As far as ease of putting it together; well my two daughters (9 & 10) were able to do most of it with a bit of support. Would definitely recommend this bed!

5

In Love with this Frame!

I bought this frame recently as my old one had broken. I've wanted a bed frame like this for ages and am so happy I finally got one! The installation team were really lovely and talked me through how to take it down if I ever need to. The quality of the frame is really nice and sturdy - couldn't be happier really!

Ava Bed

We bought this bed about 3 weeks ago for my son's new bedroom; the bed looks good and is easy to build; took less than 30 minutes. He has slept in it without incident. The only thing that i believe would make it better are metal cross members at the top and bottom of the bed to give it a little more rigidity.

5

Very Sturdy

We bought this for our 12 year old daughter after looking at lots of white frames and reviews. Pretty happy with it. My only slight criticism would be that the frame for the sprung slats is visible and raises the mattress up a little too much. Maybe the wooden slats would have been a better option.

5

Sturdy, comfy and great value!

So pleased with this bed, it looks great in our cottage, it’s sturdier than i thought it would be considering how reasonable the price is. I went for the sprung slats and it’s so comfy. The delivery and commutations we’re outstanding as was the after sales service. Highly recommended!

5

Beautiful bed

I bought this to go into a newly decorated bedroom. I was a bit worried that I was ordering off the internet without seeing it first but I am very happy now that it has been delivered. It looks lovely, and feels robust. The guys who delivered it and put it together were superb too.

5

Very Stylish

This Ava bed frame looks fantastic in our newly decorated Master Bedroom. We have received so many admiring comments. It looks so stylish & is exactly the look we wanted.We went for the slatted base & this is brilliant teamed with the Sealy Maxwell Traditional Sprung Mattress.

5

Great value

I bought this for my teenage daughter at a very reasonable price, therefore I was genuinely surprised and delighted at the quality and sturdiness of the bed- frame. It looks fantastic and I’m seriously pondering purchasing another for our own bedroom. Very impressed.

5

Lovely bed frame

Lovely frame bought for my guest bedroom. Ideal for a smaller bedroom and not bulky like some frames. Nice pattern on the vertical posts which is like a daisy. Would recommend and not too expensive. Installed by the Dreams team and took my old bed away for recycling.

3

Good value bed

Bought this bed for our guest room as it was reasonably priced and a nice, simple design. Unfortunately the bed arrived broken, with one leg completely bent/broken. We did get a replacement reasonably quickly though and I’m happy with the bed now it is assembled.

5

Great looking bed

I bought this bed frame to put in spare room as a guest bed. Instructions to assemble were easy to follow & although it recommended two people to assemble, I managed to do it alone. I’ve had family stay and use the bed & they found it very comfortable.

4

Lovely bed base

I bought the Ava bed base a few weeks ago and it looks lovely in my spare room. As it is a metal bed it looks like it takes up less room than a bulky wooden bed. The finish is mostly good, just one mark on one of the knobs that screw onto the headboard.

5

Sturdy Bed Frame

This bed frame will not disappoint. It looks good and is sufficiently engineered not to crumple and fail like the cheaper alternative I had bought 9 months earlier. You get what you pay for, this is simply a well made bed frame.

4

Pretty bed

Had this bed for around a month now and really love it, looks really good and feels sturdy. My only issue is that the slats will occasionally slip out and we have to lift the whole mattress off to fix it, which is annoying.

4

Replacement bed frame

Bought 2 of these, good value for the price. Arrived on time as planned, and delivered right to the bedroom, and well protected to prevent damage. Went together very easily, no problem at all, the assembly is well designed.

5

Lovely looking and well built bed

Bought this for my daughters room and wow what a difference. Not only does it look lovely in her nearly painted room it also is super comfy and she has started sleeping in longer in the morning. Defo winner on both counts!

3

Nice design

Pretty looking bed but not too sure about strength. Only had bed ten days when l noticed wooden support leg in middle of bed (there's only one) had broken. Quickly repaired but it makes me wonder about quality.

5

Lovely bed frame!

Took an hour to build with my Mum, real easy instructions to follow and such a lovely bed frame! Looks really posh for the money and looks really nice! Plenty of under bed storage as well which is handy!!

5

Light but sturdy

The bed frame is well priced and built well. Nothing is loose or badly made. I was hesitant at first because how light the back board was but was supplied on how little the frame moves or makes any noise

5

Amazing bed!

Replaced old single bed with this Ava metal bed frame and I absolutely adore it. Looks beautiful. It’s surprisingly high up from the ground but that’s fine for me, just bear it in mind when purchasing

5

Questions and Answers About Ava Metal Bed Frame

Please could you let me know if the length is correct on the standard (4ft 6) double?  It states the length is 212cm however a standard double mattress is only 190cm in length. This would leave a considerable gap?

Answer: , The length from the inside of the headboard to the inside of the foot end; which is the space where the mattress will sit, is 193.4cm long. Therefore there will be only a very small gap to allow for. The measurement of 212cm takes into account the headboard and foot end which as a result add in extra length. Kind Regards, Dreams

Do you take the old bed away

Answer: , Yes, our team are able to remove and recycle your old bed frame or mattress on delivery of your new bed - this option can be selected at the checkout. Pricing for this service is as below: Single mattresses - £25 Double mattresses - £35 King & super king mattresses - £40 Bed frames & divan bases - £25 Kind Regards, Dreams

Is the slated base wooden and the sprung base metal. Would be helpful if you showed pictures of the alternatives

Answer: Hi , Sprung slats are stronger wood, have an extra strengthening bar in the middle and are upwardly curved. This means they're more durable. We recommend upgrading to sprung slats if this will be your main bed. Solid slats are the basic pine planks that hold your mattress up from the floor. Thank you for your question.

Is the length dimension for the 4'6 Double listed correctly? Only, shouldn't it be 202cm / 79"? (4'6 double mattress are usually 75" long). Please can you check this and all the other dimensions listed too? Thank you.

Answer: , I apologise if there is confusion around the dimensions of our Ava Bed Frame. I can confirm that the length of the bed, from head end to foot end is 201cm. The length of the sleeping area, where the mattress lays is 193.4cm.The width of the frame is 138.5cm. Kind Regards, Dreams

Can I get an earlier delivery date?  Thanks Kate 

Answer: , The delivery dates offered at check out are the earliest we can offer unfortunately. If you have ay issues at checkout or selecting a delivery please contact our help centre on 0800 6526750 where we will be happy to help Kind Regards, Dreams

Hi which slats are better, there are 2 types? Is there support in the middle of the bed to prevent sagging?

Answer: , The Sprung slats are an upgrade to the solid slats as they offer extra support. The Solid slats come with 1 x supporting leg and the sprung slats comes with 3 x supporting legs spread evenly down the middle of the frame. Kind Regards, Dreams

What is the difference between solid slates and spring slates, we want a memory mattress which is best for it.

Answer: , Solid and sprung slats work in different ways. Solid slats provide a firmer sleeping experience, while sprung slats offer more cushioned support. Either slat system is compatible with a memory foam mattress. Kind Regards, Dreams

Are the dimensions for king size quoted correctly,  looks like hwl are in wrong order

Answer: Hi , Yes, the correct dimensions are as follows: Double: 114cm x 202cm x 145cm (H x L x W) King: 114cm x 212cm x 158cm (H x L x W). We will update the website to reflect this. Thank you for your question.

Is this bed at all creaky like some Metal beds can be? 

Answer: , Beds can become creaky if they are not tightened or assembled correctly, we would advise to periodically re tighten the bolts to ensure the bed does not become creaky over time Kind Regards, Dreams

Will this bed fit the mattress 200 x 160 cm ? 

Answer: , The Ava bed frame in a king will accommodate a mattress measuring 150cm x 200cm as a result the mattress you are inquiring about is unlikely to fit this bed frame properly. Kind Regards, Dreams

What is the weight restriction on the spring boards? 

Answer: , We currently don’t specify a weight limit to our bedframes, however all bed frames are tested to the British Standard EN1725uctural test for strength and stability. Kind Regards, Dreams

Are the standard slats all evenly spaced, what's the distance between them?

Answer: Hi , On our double solid slats these have 12 gaps which are 8cm apart. On our king solid slats there are also 12 gaps but these are 8.6cm apart. Thank you for your question.

What body weight does the Ava metal bed hold. 

Answer: , Our bed frames have been designed to accommodate a variety of different mattresses and sleepers alike, therefore we do not offer specific weight limits. Kind Regards, Dreams

How far apart are the slats ie. the measurements of the gap is in between please? 

Answer: , For a Double Bed with solid slats: Gap Between Slats: 8cm For a Double Bed with sprung slats: Gap Between Slats: 4.7cm Kind Regards, Dreams

What is at the base of the legs on the bed frame? How will the sit on a wooden floor without marking the floor?

Answer: , We can confirm that on the base of the legs of this bed frame there are small plastic feet caps to prevent scratching. Kind Regards, Dreams

Hello, would a 153x200 mattress be too big for a king size Ava bed?  Thank you.

Answer: , Most King Size mattresses measure 150x200, so this should fit, though you may have a minimal overhang at the side. Kind Regards, Dreams

Hi, can you confirm if the base has a support leg in the middle on the sprung slat double base please?  Thank you

Answer: , The Ava metal bed frame comes with 3 x support legs that are evenly spaced out down the centre of the slats frame. Kind Regards, Dreams

We have recently moved and in the process we’ve lost the bolts for our frame, can we purchase replacements? 

Answer: , Please contact our customer service team who should be able to arrange this for you. Kind Regards, Dreams

Are the slats on this bed metal or wooden

Answer: , The slats on the bed are wooden and come in solid form or sprung for extra comfort. Kind Regards, Dreams

Hi - do you do the double frame in pink as well or just the king size in pink?

Answer: , Unfortunately this is not available. Kind regards Dreams

Is the bed frame white or cream/white

Answer: Hi , This bed frame is white. Thank you for your question.

Hi Can you tell me how tall the bed is (from the floor to where the mattress sits?

Answer: , This dimension is 30cm. Kind Regards, Dreams

Hi, what is the height from floor to the underside of the slats/sides of the bed please?

Answer: , This dimension is 30cm. Kind Regards, Dreams
