What Makes The Classic Ottoman Base Great?

Despite being a two man job, one old woman managed to put it together with comparative ease. I was amazed at how much storage space there is. My only problem was closing it afterwards. It is definitely easier with the mattress on. Initially, I found jumping on the bed and transferring my weight to the open end was best and anyone watching would have found it at least as funny as I did! I have now developed a better technique, bracing myself against the wall and using the straps to pull it down like weights on one of those machines at the gym. I would say that the salesman in the shop managed it with relative ease and a lot more grace! If I was buying another divan, I would definitely choose this base and have been showing it off to everyone who's allowed in my house under the current restrictions.

Front end opening

Single wheel castors enable easy movement

Storage depth: 21cm

Mattress and headboard not included

The mattress and headboard is not included allowing you to choose one that suits your needs or use one you already have. If you do need a mattress or headboard why not save money on shipping and order them all at once, you could even pick out your matching bedding.

Build time: 2 people | 20 minutes

You might be able to manage this alone but we'd recommend 2 people at a time of 20 minutes or so to build this product.

Customer Reviews For The Classic Ottoman Base

Based on 100 review

Best solution to storage ever!

Wish I'd got one of these for the king size in the master bedroom now, maybe I will! This is exactly the base I was hoping for in a single and is an absolute godsend, giving us a huge amount of storage space compared to draws, especially in a room of limited space. The mechanism is easy to operate and opens effortlessly with one hand to about chest height allowing easy access. Loads of volume even for a single bed with a strong base so even heavier items can be stored, musical keyboard, books, linen, blankets. You can load it confident that the bottom won't break through, unlike a drawer. Material covering the base is also very attractive and pleasing. I highly recommend this Ottoman Base, best bade ever!


Amazing space saver

Brought this bed because of the feature it has. We were in need of some space for our bedroom, this and this bed came highly recommended by the manager. It came in a variety of colours and i like that it is so easy to use. Its easy to lift and minimal effort to push back down to close. Also I like that you don't hear the hydrolics on this product and just by simply opening and closing you know that it is working. The space inside is exceptional, its created so much more space for our bedroom. I highly recommend this ottoman bed, you won't be disappointed.


Best Bed For Storage!

We bought this bed for moving to our first home together. Already had one in my family home for 4 years and is still working beautifully but mum had it off me so we got a new one! Absolutely love this bed, so sturdy and has so much room for all my junk I want stored! Opens & closes smoothly and look classy. May be a bit more expensive than those you see on the internet, but worth every penny for the quality. Fantastic delivery guys gave top service and even fitted my headboard which was ready and waiting in the room. Thanks Dreams :)


Wow, sooo much storage space.

We purchased this new Super King bed after trying the dreams sleep experience. Decided on the ottoman base instead of drawers. So pleased we made this choice. There is so much storage space , far greater than had we chosen drawers. The bed lifts up from the end, there are two hand spaces for this purpose. The gas struts take a lot of the effort away and can easily be lifted by one person. Alternatively if needs be then two people could perform the lift although we don't find a need for this


Simplicity to perfection

I have used the classic ottoman bed from Dreams for 3 years now. I don’t need to say much to confirm the quality of the bed but what I will say is that it is so simple but seemlessly perfect at the same time and does exactly what you need. Bed hunting can be a hassle to find something simple but for its intended purpose and that’s why I wouldn’t go anywhere else now but Dreams.


Great product

Bought as wanted something very simple with plenty storage and this fully delivers. Good to know before that though it’s 2 single units they are bolted together so you can’t seperate them and have it as 2 singles. Also the mechanism to close the bed requires quite a lot of strength if you are not tall-I’m 5-2 and manage fine but it’s not without an effort!


Great storage solution for a bed base!

I bought a double version of this Ottoman storage base a few years ago and the extra space has been invaluable! When I wanted to change my Kingsize bed, I had no hesitation in returning to Dreams for the same model....... It is even better now as it has an 8 year guarantee for the pistons which lift the mattress base!


Fabulous First Bed!

Bought this for my two year old daughter as her first bed, with the hope of purchasing a quality product to last for years. We are absolutely thrilled with the quality and appearance and my daughter has adapted perfectly to her new bed. I’ll be looking to buy one the same for my other daughter in the coming months.


Perfect storage on wheels

LOVED this base option in neutral beige & on wheels allowing for easy cleaning access. It housed MUCH of my extra bedding & clothes allowing my room a feel of spaciousness after months of chaos! My delivery gentlemen were outstanding, courteous & efficient. A FANTASTIC experience - thank you ALL.


Fantastic storage

We were looking for an otaman bed as we needed the storage, having downsized house. This was perfect for our needs and at a very reasonable price. Good delivery information and the lads assembled it quickly leaving no mess. Would not hesitate to recommend Dreams to anyone looking for a new bed.


Great product - does as it says!

Product does as it says. Plenty of storage, simple yet effective design. I was worried the caster wheels were going to be a weakness but they are very sturdy. Room for improvement: Instructions could do with a re-design, be made specific to this bed model rather than be a catch-all.


just what we needed

having been and looked at a range of different types of beds we decided on the Classic ottoman base as it gave us that extra space we required it was easy to assemble and worked just like the one in the store no problems with it easy to lift up and down so it was just what we needed


Great storage and looks good.

I bought this for additional storage and it certainly provides that so I'm very happy with the product. The only slight concern I had is the mechanism for lifting the mattress which we could not work initially but a call to the help line sorted that out and we've got it sorted now.


Ottomans bed frame.

I bought it this month about 3 weeks ago. I am pleased with the bedding as it been superbly designed for the most maximal comfort which has been my experience as well as that of my fiancee. It's simple and very basic. The storage is also easily accessible and proved very useful.


Great Ottoman storage divan.

We bought this as a modern replacement for our old 20 divan. It’s been a very good sturdy comfortable divan allied to a new dreams mattress, we couldn’t be more pleased. Good value, great quality. Timely delivery by experienced removal men. An all round positive experience!


Fantastic bed

I thought this bed a few weeks ago and I am so happy with it , it gives me so much space underneath the bed , it was an x display but was in amazing condition and the staff where very helpful and came very quickly which was very good as mine was completely broken.


Works very well

I bought the base because I needed some extra storage. The mechanism work very well, it’s easy to lift and close. I wish I’d have bought a slightly deeper version but that doesn’t detract from the quality of this product, you can never have enough storage


great price and easy to use

I purchased this ottoman after doing a lot of research. I am impressed with the quality and pleased with the colour (Grey/silver). It is easy to lift up and provides plenty of room for storage. i would have no hesitation is recommending this product.


Great solution for storage

Brought two of these for my children who are now teenagers, both in desperate need of additional storage space. Has done this well both kids happy. Base is sterdy enough and easy to open from the foot end. Two happier teenagers and two tidier rooms.

So much storage !!

I took delivery of this bed 3 weeks ago and am delighted, the only thing I would say is either pay for home assembly or make sure you have some help. I am an ex carpenter and I found it hard on my own. Still a great product and great value.

Ideal product

Having had a devan bed before and finding the draws were not strong enough, this ottoman bed is far more sturdy & able to store more which is ideal for what I was looking for. Opening the ottoman is very easy to open better than draws.


Well made, easy to open and close

I bought this about a month ago to use as a spare bed. It seems strong and well made. Opens easily has loads of storage room inside. The delivery team were great and the 2 part construction made it easy to get upstairs.

Questions and Answers About Classic Ottoman Base

This bed is going on a hard floor, so I don't want casters. Can I order a different feet to stop the bed moving around?

Answer: , Our Classic Divan base comes with Castors we do not offer a different leg option for this range. One of our TheraPur or Sleepeezee bases might be better for you as these come with a glide option. Another route to explore could be purchasing 'castor cups' these are small cups that hold the castor in place so the bed does not move on hard flooring. These are usually reasonably price and come in a standard size. Kind Regards, Dreams

What’s the difference between your luxury otter man and the classic? 

Answer: , We do aim to produce all of our product to the highest quality. The main difference is the castors, the Luxury comes with Chrome castors, the classic with Black wheels. The Luxury pistons have a higher gas cylinder compared to the classic and the fabric used is more luxurious on the Luxury base. Kind Regards. Dreams.

We have two single mattresses for our king sized bed. If we get the king-size of this bed we want to keep them slightly separate (so that one person tossing and turning doesn't wobble the other!) ... Is that OK structurally ?

Answer: , Unfortunately the two halves of this base must be fixed together with the linking bar in order to provide a secure and stable sleeping area. In addition, the ottoman must also be fixed together in order to allow it to be raised. Therefore we would not advise or recommend keeping these apart. Kind Regards, Dreams

Hi we have two separate headboards and want two single beds that can either be used as single beds or linked together to form a king size or double. Will this bed work

Answer: , This divan can be used as two Euro Small singles is purchasing a King size or Euro Single if purchasing a Superking size, so you will need to purchase mattresses that are 200cm in length to accommodate. Each divan has pre drilled holes to accommodate all UK headboards. Kind Regards, Dreams

Is it possible to use the bed without any castors fitted, to keep the bed low enough to sit on comfortably?

Answer: , We do recommend using the castors for ease of movement, to avoid damage to the floor and to complete the look. If you decide to not use the castors this will have no effect on the Divans performance but we would advise you use something to protect your floors. Kind Regards Dreams

How do I dismantle the bed so I can move it? 

Answer: Hello , You can dismantle the bed by taking the linking bars off and strapping the bases shut. If you'd like further assistance please call our customer services on 0344 292 0000, who will be able to talk you through the process. I hope this helps and thank you for your question.

What is the difference between the classic and the luxury ottoman base?

Answer: , The range of colours available in our Classic Divan Bases differ to those available in our Luxury range. In addition, the fabric of the Luxury range is a slightly thicker weave in comparison to the fabric on the Classic Divan Bases. Kind Regards, Dreams

how do you close securely when the mattress is off ? can't seem to close secure needed for moving house any tips?

Answer: , Once the mattress has come off the base the pistons release, this is a health and safety feature. If you are moving and need to collapse the base, you can use tape or rope to secure it shut. This shouldn't harm the pistons. Kind Regards, Dreams

Just had ottoman base delivered, but can't close as no mattress yet, how do you close securely when the mattress is off ? Would it ok to fit a strong catch ?

Answer: , This is a safety feature. If there is no mattress on the ottoman it will remain open to avoid the lid closing and potentially hurting someone. Please do not attach any clips or brackets as it will damage the base. Kind regards. Dreams.

I'm thinking of getting a super king size. I assume that the mattress has to be removed before operating these ottoman bases, so there would be a lot of heavy handling involved to remove anything from the storage.

Answer: , The mattress does not need to be removed when lifting the ottoman up; the mattress can remain on the base. The base has been designed to accommodate the weight of the mattress and still have the ability to lift with ease. Kind Regards, Dreams

I have a Classic D Ottoman base. It was dismantled and I have lost the fixings. Can I buy replacements?
