What Makes It Great

We bought this bedstead because it was different from the norm with its attached LED lighting on both sides. This is practical and leaves space at the bedside as you do not need a separate lamp/s. The lighting is very bright, so adequate for bedtime reading and / or those inevitable night trips. But, too bright to create a relaxing atmosphere, although you can turn the lights closely towards a wall. But, even then it remains quite bright. We were not given any instructions so I am unsure whether this can be dimmed. Looking at the spring slats of the bedstead made me wish that I had taken out the insurance offered as the look and feel of them appear quite flimsy. I have some trepidation that these might break or become damaged. I would not advise children or adults to jump, leap or otherwise on the bed for that reason. However, I have only had the bedstead for a few weeks and with the mattress we also bought I find the whole thing very comfortable. At times my husband knocks his legs on the end of the bedstead, when walking around the bed getting in and out. But, he has previously been used to a high bed end, so in time he should get used to this.

Questions and Answers

I've just ordered a superking tempur 27 mattress and want to know if it would fit on this bedstead. Also, the oak and magnolia finish would match my furniture best, does this come in the size? How long do the LED lights last and can the bulbs be replaced?

Answer: Hello , Yes the Super King Tempur 27 Mattress will fit this bedrame, however we do not recommend sprung slatted frames with our memory foam mattresses, as you will not get the full support and comfort compared to a solid slatted frame. If you would still like to order the Super King Oak and Magnolia Bed Frame please call our Telesales Team on: 0800 652 5090. LED lights are designed to last 11 years if used 12 hours a day and they can be replaced via our Customer Service Team. Many thanks for your questions and I hope this helps.

Can you tell me if the MDF is formaldehyde-free please?

Answer: Hello , Wiemann chipboard is classified as E1 emission standards . These are low formaldehyde emission standards. The lowest emissions as per European legislation. E1 is compulsory to meet. That means chipboard used is not free of an formaldehyde, but meeting standards as set by the EU regulations and therefore classified as low emissions not having a negative impact on heath. Chipboard without any kind of formaldehyde doesn't exist. Thank you for your question and I hope this helps.

Is it possible to have this in solid base? 

Answer: Hello , This does not come in a solid base. If you'd like a solid base we have a great range of divan bases available. However if you are after solid slats instead of sprung, this bed only comes with sprung. Sprung slats in fact offer more comfort and support that solid slats. I hope this helps and thank you for your question.

How much do we need to pay for assembly and delivery . Also what is the expected delivery date ?

Answer: Hello , Assembly is free of charge and delivery is £39. Also you can get an estimated delivery date by inputting your postcode in 'Check estimated delivery date' under the add to basket button. I hope this helps and thank you for your question.

I luv my bed

The Berkeley looks very smart, really pleased with it, only wish is that the headboard was higher as it's a shame not to see it as it is attractive but you cant once pillows are on the mattress. Also managed to work out how to take it apart and put back up again in a different room but shame delivery men hadn't left instructions on that. Nermind sussed it out. To save money I mixed and matched this with Alpine 2 Drawer Bedside Chests - Oak/Cream ~ and it goes really well. Even the helpful man in dreams thought that was a good idea! I also liked the way the helpful man measured the height of the bed and we sussed out which bedside chest height was best (although the bed does have a few adjustable heights). Yes she is lovely even if very heavy.


Lovely new bed

We purchased this bed when it was on offer after suffering with backache for some time, due to purchasing a cheap divan from a well know deal website (Big mistake). The bed took around 7 weeks to arrive, which we were aware of as it is on special order. The delivery company were excellent, keeping us informed of the delivery. 2 guys arrived to put the bed together, which they did quickly and efficiently, they cleaned up all their mess aswell. The bed is extremely comfortable and very well made, we like the way the sprung slats are on a separate frame inside the bed, we do not regret buying this bed whatsoever. We are now in the process of saving up for the rest of the range, hoping that will be back on offer soon.


Really pleased

We bought the Berkeley range consisting of Bed.wardrobe,double width drawers,bedside table and 5drawer chest. We absolutely love them as they have transformed our bedroom.we bought the magnolia/oak style and the colour is beautiful.the build quality is great,very heavy which means very sturdy.we were lucky enough to buy when a 3 for 2 offer was on a couple of months ago so the price compared very favourable when shopping around.we were able to get a different range chest of drawers for the landing for our 6th item. Well recommended.great staff too.


Great bed

This is an outstanding bed. Quite sturdy and well made. I have all 3 colours but I have to say walnut and black is my favourite.2 most amazing features are 1) the side lights - can't praise them enough. They are do handy and 2) you can adjust the height of the slats which is perfect. I have kept it on 3 different heights for all 3 of my beds depending on the mattress height. The assembly service is perfect . My only big bear is the delivery office team which are a nightmare but I can't fault the product because of that. Buy it, you won't regret.



I bought this for my son together with other items from the range. It looks fabulous, however, when we bought it it was not pointed out to us that the lights were plug in rather than battery operated and unfortunately we had to have these left off the bed (which was one of the reasons he wanted it in the first place!) when it was put together as we had no plug socket on that side of the room, which could easily have been put in had we known!


Lovely & Excellent Quality

I am really pleased with this even though it was quiet expensive. Its not often that I'll order without going to the store to see the product but this time I did as I was in a hurry and I am completely satisfied! I paid the extra for delivery and install and the guys were fabulous and put the bed together really quickly and took all the packaging too. Love the lights too a great idea - thank you Dreams great product great service.


bad slat design

I have owned this bed for 4 years now. The own bed is wonderful except the slat design. The slats are fitted to the frame with plastic springy holders which are stapled onto the frame. After only owning the bed for 6 months I sat on the bed and several of these plastic holders broke. More and more of these have broken over the years Im now in a position where more then half of them are broken. A very poor bit of design.


Love the bed, disappointed with Dreams service!

Great bed, worth the money paid. Dreams did not deliver a great service though. It took them forever to confirm the purchase, in branch staff had no clue because it was done online (it didn't say anything about that online though). I phoned and emailed several times until finally somebody answered, and even after that delivery took forever! Not the best service at all, shame!


Berkeley Walnut wooden bed frame

A very stylish piece of furniture for the bedroom. We opted for the plan walnut finish which we are more than happy with. The guys who assembled it were very professional and it didn’t take them to long to assemble and put it into place. We love it as it looks very modern and makes the bedroom look very chic. We chose not to use the lights.


Berkeley Bedstead - A fine piece of furniture

Bought this a couple of month ago to match my bedroom furniture and it is a lovely piece of furniture. Sturdy and of course the little LED's are a great bonus, probably why I bought it also. Saves having bedroom lamps. Cant fault this and the installation did not take very long. Satisfied customer.


Great bed

Was a minor issue at first as I wasn't aware that the bed would be assembled for me but when bed arrived the second time everything was sorted within about 20 minutes. Bed is of great quality, especially like the lights on the side. Would definitely recommend this bed to anyone.


Pure quality

bought this bed recently. It is pure quality ! The wood frame is beautiful and the side lights are a great feature. Fantastic service by Dreams and the delivery guys who put the bed together and left everything ready for a perfect night sleep. Well done Dreams!


Lovely stylish bed

I've had my new bed for about a month now and I absolutely love it! The built-in lamps are fabulous and make bedtime reading so much easier. It looks very stylish in my newly decorated bedroom. Very importantly, it isn't imposing in size as space is an issue.


very good quality

we ordered this in store, quick and efficient service, were told company who made takes a little longer for ordering however it came earlier than said so my son was over the moon. The company also fitted all the furniture together for free - fantastic


Looks stylish

Looks stylish and very modern. Lights on the headboard are a cool feature. Wooden slats make a noise sometimes when you get into bed. The matress that we bought isn't big enough at the sides, and you can see the slats which is a bit disappointing.


Tres Fabulous

we purchased this and looked forward to having it in our new built home which happened Tuesday, December 2016 and the bed is a Dream, truly relaxing, most satisfied with our purchase so A Big Thank you to the Dreams team regards Kathy 'n Neil


Great Service

I ordered two double beds. Great quality and service. The delivery guys delivered the beds to the bedrooms, assembled them very quickly and removed all the packaging. I was very pleased and would definitely recommend Dreams.


outstanding bedstead

I bought this bed for our new home. I was informed it would take 6 weeks before it was delivered. Delivery was prompt and built in record time. This bedstead is of high quality and so was the service. I am very happy.


Looks the part

Very happy with my purchase.. The bed does look the part and is very sturdy. The LED lights are a bonus at night for reading in bed and I would buy it all over again. Only down side was waiting so long on delivery.


Great look

Matches well with our bedroom furniture and the black design and reading lights give it an extra special touch. Edges are slightly sharp when walking past in a small room but overall a great bed


Attractive designer

Bought at the same time as 2 sets of drawers. Lovely design and the lights attached to the frame are really useful. Bed was really quickly assembled by the delivery men who were really pleasant.


Great features

I've had this bed a couple of months now and I love it! Sturdy wood frame matches my room perfectly and the little lamps are brilliant as I have no room for beside tables. Very happy with this.


Poor fixtures

The brackets that hold the mattress at the correct level is poorly designed and does not hold the mattress properly Disappointed as spend a lot of money for this furniture will not buy again


Looks so good

We bought this over the internet and I wasn’t sure what it would look like. I love the lights and because it’s a light wood it doesn’t look bulky either. Definitely recommend this bed frame


Great, stylish bed!

The bed is lovely, it's sturdy and looks very stylish. The lights are also a great feature. We didn't build it, but the delivery team who did had it up in less than 15 minutes.


Good Quality

I bought this furniture a month ago and when the guys came to build it.. I have never been so pleased, the service from the shop to the build was outstanding. Thank you so much


Sturdy Bed

Great sturdy bed, which looks better in real life than the picture shows. Seems well made although very early says yet, but certainly an improvement on my old bed.


Good wardrobe

I can't fault it for the price. It looks very good in our bedroom along with the matching bed and bedsides. Prompt delivery and assembled by a 2 professionals.


Berkeley bed frame black

Fantastic bed. Arrived in three weeks. Delivery guys put together in next to no time. Glad I used Dreams. I love this bed. The lights are also a great touch.


Nice finish

I really like the bedstead but the mattress bought at the same time does not fit being too small. It spoils the look of the bedstead and upsets me very much


Nice, sturdy, makes my room look good

I bought this end of last year and it has been good and sturdy. Since assembling was included in the cost, so did not have to bother about that as well.


No hassle purchase!

Great, good looking bed at a good price. Not had it long so don't know how well it will hold up but fine so far. Service from Dreams was perfect!


Good build quality

The product appears as it does in the picture. Wood is sturdy and feels high quality. Lights also feel high quality and are easy to adjust.


solid bedstead

bought this bedstead last September and it is a solid piece of furniture. mattress is not from dreams but pretty happy with the bedstead.


love the frame with the lights attached

Had the bed since March and I love it. The frame works well in the bedroom and although a kingsize it doesn't take up a lot of space.
