Why our sleep experts loved it

If you're intrigued by the prospect of both comfort and style without forsaking accessibility and storage, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better example than the Bethany Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame. Meticulously crafted to blend perfectly into any decor style, this exquisite bed frame is the embodiment of elegant design, convenience, and functionality. It won't solely be a resting place, but an appealing centerpiece of your bedroom as well. However, any piece of furniture is an investment, which prompts thorough research. To assist you ease this process and aid your decision-making, I've put together a comprehensive review based on our testing, feature evaluation, customer experiences, and even a sprinkle of personal sentiments.

How we tested

Our testing process took into account vital elements that buyers often look for when investing in a bed frame; functionality, convenience, comfort, interior compatibility, and, of course, overall value for money. We scrutinized the Bethany Upholstered Ottoman over a span of three weeks to ensure a comprehensive experience. During this period, we took time to evaluate the strength of the bed's support system, how user-friendly the ottoman storage functions, and its aptness across different decor styles among other things.

Design and features

The design and features are where the Bethany Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame shines. Its esthetics comprise a padded headboard characterized by squared edges and chic French seams upholstered in a soft flat weave grey fabric. Simultaneously, the high side rails beautifully add to its cozy appeal. The bed frame is not just visually appealing, but highly practical as well. A momentous feature of this bed is its easy-to-access, end-opening ottoman, with a storage depth of 21cm, making your unwanted clutter a thing of the past. The Bethany also features a supporting bar designed to keep the bed elevated when the ottoman storage is in use.

Construction

For construction, the Bethany Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame delivers both in terms of craftsmanship and materials used. A key aspect that jumps out is the slat supporting frame that cushions your mattress. Customers have an option to upgrade to a solid baseboard for enhanced support, although, based on personal experience, the default setting of sprung slats holds up splendidly and may prove to be a smarter financial decision.

Suitability

While personal preference is ultimately king when it comes to purchasing any piece of furniture, I found that the Bethany Bed would be a suitable fit for anyone who desires enhanced support and ample storage without compromising on style. This bed frame elevates comfort with its padded headboard that serves as a plush, supportive backrest for reading or leisurely lounging around, making it suitable for individuals who love those serine moments before and after sleep.

What customers thought

Customer feedback is an essential section to consider. Majority of customers' reviews indicate a high-level satisfaction with the robust construction, space-saving storage, and aesthetic appeal of the Bethany Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame. Comments such as “great looking and really comfortable”, “bed frame is very nice”, and “absolutely love everything about this bed” are a recurring theme. However, a few reviews indicated some dissatisfaction, primarily centered around occasional noises originating from the bed. It is crucial to remember, though, that such experiences could well be outliers, given the overwhelmingly positive majority.

The verdict

In conclusion, while my personal liking leans towards more vibrant designs and I don't necessarily agree with all of its fans, the strength and functionality of the Bethany Upholstered Ottoman Bed are undeniable. The design may seem quite plain to some, yet to others, its muted grace is its selling point. Weighing upon the robust construction, chic design, ample storage options, these outweigh the minor potential for noise. If you're looking for a solid, stylish bed frame with the bonus of hidden storage, the Bethany Upholstered Ottoman Bed would get my vote.

Myself and my partner needed a new bed for a while and opted to travel to a local Dreams store to see if anything took our fancy. The service was brilliant from the Gateshead Metro Centre store, and we opted for a Super Kingsize Mattress and the Bethany Ottoman with flat board upgrade. It was roughly 5 weeks from order to delivery which was great. We opted for it to be built on delivery, which was handled brilliantly with prompt delivery and quick construction. The bed itself feels very solid, and looks great in the room. Much better than our last bed from an Oak based store. I personally love the size and thickness of the headboard and the height of the bed is perfect. The ottoman storage is great too with an easily accessible gas lift from the bottom of the bed. I would recommend this bed for anyone who likes the look of it!

The squared edges with French seam detail, coupled with a cool linen-look fabric make Bethany bang on trend. The soft cushioned headboard is perfect for bed time reading and the ample storage space will give you lots of room to hide away extra bedding, towels or shoes.

Delighted with the Bethany Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame. The squared-edge padded headboard and chic French seams are stylish and comfortable. The spacious under-bed storage is a handy feature. However, assembly took us a touch longer than expected.

Ordered this bed after seeing it in store a few weeks prior. The headboard is great & the frame itself not too big for our room. I would call the colour cream though. Really pleased with our purchase.

What are the potential issues if I have a heavier mattress than specified?

Answer: If the mattress is heavier than recommended this will cause damage to the lifting mechanism, and it will also make the bed unsafe and pose a safety risk, we would advise against this.Thanks

How do we break in the pistons

Answer: To help the pistons ease, you need to open and lower the ottoman with the mattress on the frame. The mattress weight is needed to lower the pistons.Many thanks
