To that end, it is important to check with the mattress instructions when spacing slats.

Customer Reviews For The Detroit Upholstered Sleigh Bed Frame

Based on 750 reviews
Quality bed base

I've been putting off buying a new bed for the last few years but finally decided to take the plunge and move up from a king size to a super king in the Detroit upholstered bed frame. It comes very well packaged and the delivery people were friendly and helpful and it was no bother for them to bring it all 50 metres up the driveway. One thing worth noting is that the bed head is a single piece and is very big, something which I didn't consider when purchasing. It was only when it arrived I considered whether it would actually go up the stair case! The entire frame is well constructed and all bolts/screws more than adequate however attaching the slats is a bit fiddly due to the retaining bolts that go underneath not having any means to grip the wood. This means you have to either have someone with small arms that can fit through the slats and hold the allen key or be very flexible! Once made the frame is study and looks fabulous, the addition of the sliding draw is a bonus. Again the drawer is well made but would have been nice if there was some sort of runner for it to keep it central as opposed to just being on caster wheels. Really happy with the purchase overall and with 100 off made it even better value for money.

A great addition to any bedroom

I bought this instead of an ottoman bed as the amount of storage was just enough so as not to hoard stuff not required as we all do The bed frame is quick and easy to put togeather fella solid and looks great The draw is also well built with plenty of support in the draw base to ensure the base can hold what is placed within The draw actually takes longer to assemble than the frame Overall am very happy with the look build and the support it gives to my mattress If you are considering this bed you will not be disappointed The only downside is the choice of colour and trim but if it fits your style I highly recommend this bed It is well built sturdy and looks great

Stylish and Versatile

We have a super king in brown leather for the master bedroom which we bought with memory foam mattress. It is a solid and great addition to the room that elevates it. We also have the same in double in our second bedroom. It goes great with our oak bedroom furniture and Laura Ashley bed sets. This is a great bed but you should consider that it will take up a lot of space in the room (much larger than the mattress). Also it is very difficult to assemble yourself so buying assembly is a wise choice. Finally the material looks great but I fear it will not age well and might get damaged easily. I took out bedcover which provides some peace of mind in that area.

Great Bed

I love my new bed! It looks so nice in the grey fabric and it feels soft. It's a fairly high frame compared to other sleigh beds. It is very sturdy and holds our very deep mattress perfectly. We brought this bed with a deep mattress to accommodate my partner who is 6'4 - he fits well in it, and if he slides down the bed during the night, the soft fabric of the bed means his feet can hang over the end without rubbing or pain. The drawer can hold a surprising amount, and if you need to get under the bed for any reason, you can just pull out the whole drawer and easily get under. All in all, it is a fantastic bed frame and worth the money.

Great Product, Great Design!!!

Great product. Good quality and much more solid than other similar products. Draw has additional supports under the chipboard to avoid collapsing. Wooden planks go all the way across the bed (as opposed to half way on some beds) and are more solid than any bed I have ever had. The fabric looks classy and exactly like I wanted, not cheap or tacky. Great for the price!!! Only negative is that the bed is a but light weight. I have laminate flooring and only the headboard is on a wall and therefore the bed moves slightly if pushed whilst moving around however can easily be prevented by adding grips on the beds. Overall, Great product!!!

Simply fab from start to finish

We were in the process of purchasing our first house and wanted a new bed frame. Dreams made everything so easy and their customer service was second to none. We ordered and paid for the bed and called to change delivery address (after we dropped out of one house purchase and bought another instead) and change the date for delivery. The bed arrived when they said it would, the 2 guys were friendly, professional, quick and clean to assemble the bed. The frame itself is fantastic, so sturdy and comfortable. It's the best sleep my husband and I have had in years. Couldn't recommend Dreams enough. Simply fab from start to finish.

Excellent quality bed

I bought this bed in early January after our current bed broke. The lead time was 6 weeks but it has been worth the wait. The bed is lovely and sturdy whilst having a feeling of quality. It took me nearly 4 hours to construct but this was mostly on my own and without an electric screwdriver which would have saved time. Instructions were good and clear. One part was damaged on arrival and Dreams have been great and are coming out with the new part and swapping it out and installing the new part (drawer front) without charge and taking away the old part. Excellent service!

Wow - Love it!

We decided to replace our kingsize bed frame with this one, but the super king sized version. The delivery was was communicated, including a two hour times lot given the day before. The delivery chaps arrived bang on time and carried the boxes upstairs. Polite and professional. The build was ok (wife did it!), and the results stunning. The bed certainly dominates the room and looks luxurious. After a few weeks of sleeping on it (with an Emma mattress), we are both extremely happy. Solid, huge, quality and looks. Top job Dreams...

Excellent bed frame apart from the Slats

Tbh I can't really fault this bed base it's outstanding, it's like sleeping in a king size 5 star hotel bed BUT the wooden Slats do not come sanded down what's so ever! 3 mnths into this purchase, I had to get a replacement mattress from where the slats were splintered, chipping, falling off! In turn split my mattress. I've literally today had the mattress replaced (wonderful service) but as they have just explained to me whilst replacing the slats, that you'll always have those wood notches in the wood, even if you were to sand down.

Really Stylish Looking & Comfortably Bed

I bought this bed a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't the one I originally ordered as that had been discontinued after I ordered it but I was pleased with the alternative offered It was fairly easy to build, although it took me a while but in fairness I built it on my own!. The mattress is very comfortable and the storage drawer is spacious and I really like the fact that it wheels in on castors so there is no danger of it coming off runners. The drawer base is solid and not flimsy like some divan drawers are. Very pleased with it.


The bed itself is amazing, the quality feels premium, its sturdy and easy to assemble. The ONLY downside (if you'd even call it a downside) is when installing the two side pieces, it requires you to tighten the allen key screw, however its very hard to do that quickly because the shape of the allen key keeps hitting the side, so you need to do one rotation at a time, reset, and then do another rotation, took me over half an hour just to tighten 4 screws!!! But once the bed is built, it's easily forgivable :) highly recommended

Lovely upholstered bed with hidden drawer

So pleased I purchased this bed as an upgrade to my last bed from dreams. Firstky, it was sooo easy to assemble, took two people 30 minutes to knock it up. I was impressed with the quality of the product, really well made and the drawer has a reinforced bottom to keep it strong. It's a great colour and looks fab in our newly decorated bedroom. The drawer is fab, it blends right in to the end of the bed so you can't see it, perfect place to hide Christmas presents! I would highly recommend this product.

Amazing buy

Loved this bed soon as I saw it in the showroom and wasn't disappointed when it arrived. The delivery drivers were very helpful and friendly and arrived on time. The bed needed to be assembled which was straight forward because everything was clearly labelled. The bed itself looks well made and adds class to our bedroom the hidden draw is brilliant and very large for all our bedding, i would certainly recommend this bed and also Dreams. The staff were very welcoming no pressure just good advice Thanks

Where has this bed been all my life?!?

This bed is stunning! The quality is top notch and it was very easy to assemble. The storage drawer is huge, fits everything we need it to and more. It opens so easy, unlike other bed storage designs out there and it camouflages itself so well that it doesnt hinder the look of the bed in any way, in fact it adds to the classiness of it. This bed has transformed our bedroom from a dilapidated mess to a luxurious boudoir! Only con is I want to stay in it forever and never get out! Highly recommend!

Stunning Bed

So easy to assemble, looks amazing. It took roughly 2 hours to assemble by myself. The drawer at the foot of the bed has lots of storage space. The bed itself looks far more expensive than it actually cost, very happy with this purchase. The delivery team kept us informed every step of the way. We received regular updates, were given a 2 hour delivery slot and called before delivery. The delivery team were polite and courteous and delivered the bed to our required room with no problems at all.

Review of Dreams and Sleigh Bed Frame

I was so impressed from start to finish from the Dreams team. Lovely lady in store who did not push, just gave great advice; allowed me to go home and measure up properly. Once I had purchased the bed, delivery was quicker than expected and the team who delivered and put the bed together were on time, polite and friendly. The bed is wonderful, so comfortable and fits our room perfectly. The bottom drawer at the base of the bed is a great space saver. I would highly recommend Dreams!

Love it!

I love this bed frame. The storage drawer is a great addition. I wanted a slightly higher bed frame and that's what I got. The colour is as seen. I would have given this a 5? rating if it took as suggested only an hour and a half to put together. This may be true for those that put beds together all the time but for us it took nearly 3 hours and we do all flat packs ourselves! Thanks Dreams for the great service too. Your delivery men were polite and respectful of my flooring too.

Quality Detroit Sleigh Bed

Very good product. Very sturdy and comfortable to use with the right mattress. Only issue is you must make sure you have a lot of space to use this sort of bed frame. Mine is only a small double and it still takes up a lot of space in my room. Naturally I still think its worth it as a large portion of your life is spent sleeping, so its worth looking at a good bed frame and mattress like this. Sleeping has improved for me since getting this so I would definitely recommend.

Exactly what we needed!

I have been looking for a bed which is good value for money and great quality! Sturdy and with a useful storage draw underneath (and lets face it, who doesnt need more storage). At the moment we co sleep with our son who is a haemophiliac and we really needed a bed which wouldnt cause him any damage if he were to fling himself around which toddlers do frequently and this soft faux leather is just the ticket! I couldnt be happier with this bed, such a good buy!

Comfort, statement and quality

From moving from a double to this King Upholstered (Brown) Sleigh Bed. Ive slept so well. Its well made and feels great and the instructions were simple enough to follow, although it stated 3 hours to build, it took less than 1 and a half hours. Walking into the room its certainly makes a statement. The draw fits a lot in and is surprisingly deep, its also on wheels for ease of moving in and out. There really isnt anything bad about the bed, ticks every box :)

Fantastic service and lovely bed

We are extremely happy with the bed, it is really sturdy and looks great in our room. The drawer is very spacious and it is practically hidden which is great. We went for the grey and it looks fab. We've slept like babies since having it. The service we received was also fantastic, very helpful in store, was constantly kept up to date with delivery details and delivery guys were brilliant, very friendly and helpful. Can not fault any part of our purchase.

Best bed Ive ever bought

Had been looking for a new bed for a while but nothing seemed to tick all the boxes . Then we saw this online ! Went into store to compare 2 different beds and this was certainly the overall winner . Great storage space , well built and very easy to assemble . Love the fact the drawer is on wheels which makes it easy to store extra stuff under the bed itself . I had never bought anything from dreams before this bed frame but will be coming back in future


I purchased this as a replacement to my old double bed thats now in my guest bedroom I can honestly say that Im overjoyed with the purchase including new mattress the value quality and comfort are first class - I have a spinal injury and arthritis and the research and advise ticked all my boxes and its not disappointed in any way -Im delighted with the comfort afforded another big plus is how it fits as a 4ft in my master bedroom

Brilliant bed

I have bought this bed about a month ago and I can definitely see the difference between my old one and this one ! Its one of the most comfortable bed I have slept in . Was extremely easy to build, dreams also have videos that shows you how to which makes it even more easier, my husband managed to do it by himself. I will definitely come back to dreams to by a mattress in the close future! I most definitely recommend this product

Beautiful Bed

We'd gone to look at another similar bed frame and this one was pointed out to us as an alternative, but they only had the leather version in store and no sample to show us only the picture on the website. We loved the idea of the drawer being hidden at the base of the bed. We decided this one was the one we wanted and when the bed arrived it was much nicer than we imagined. Beautiful sturdy bed, great price and great service too.

Lovely Bed

We bought this bed 3 weeks ago, delivery within 7 days. Delivery drivers really friendly and pleasant lads, re-assured me was easy to build, and it was. Instructions were clear, all nuts, bolts screws etc all labelled correctly,and none missing. Took us about 2 hours to build but only because we were working in a tight space, because it was a king size,previously had a double. The bed is stunning and we are very happy with it.

Excellent Bed

I purchased this bed and it was delivered safely into my bedroom, I opted to assemble it my self and I had fan filming the whole process it was easy and now the bed sits beautifully in the bedroom. It is a great person and considering that am very tall but its a perfect size the drawer is an awesome storage space for loads of whatever items you can decide to put there. My description of the bed in one word is awesomeness

Need to try it In the shop first

A lot firmer than I thought it was going to be. Bought online in lockdown so hadnt tried it , wont do that again the edges of the bed are a bit strange. When you sit on the edge you could slide off , as my husband found out , he has dementia and I have found him on the floor numerous times , it never happened with our old mattress. Also purchased from Dreams . I would advise to go to the shop and not purchase online

Great !

I bought this product about a month ago. This product is just amazing. I particularly like the draw at the back which is huge and can carry the whole of my undies. The space underneath the bed is also made room for a lot of stuff. I am happy because now my room is now less messy and more organised. The bed is well-designed and a delight to sleep on. I like the softness of the leather and will recommend this to anyone.

Super king is massive

Great bed frame superb quality. Absolutely massive. Easy to build. Paid for assembly but due to covid restrictions this was not possible and was refunded the cost. From purchase to delivery communication was impressive. Was told 12 week lead time but arrived sooner. Had to rush to get new carpet fitted. As a further result I saw this advertised 50 cheaper after ordering and was also refunded this. Highly recommended.

Good bed - looks nice

We haven't had the bed long, but happy with the purchase. We got the leather version which looks nice, has a comfortable headboard if you like to sit up and read and is easier to keep clean. If you are self-assembling, I would recommend building the drawer first, particularly if you are limited for space. Not sure if the end of the bed is solid enough to sit on - feels like there is some give in the framework inside.

Detroit- Superb and elegant bed frame.

Having previously bought a super king size bed of the same model from Dreams I wanted to compliment another room with the same as I was so delighted with it. This is a very sturdy and well made frame that looks stylish and elegant. It has the added benefit of storage at the foot end and we could not be more happy with it. Its faultless and Id have no problem recommending it whatsoever. You wont be disappointed.

Love this bed

I bought the bed in February, quality is great, well made, and nice finish. Delivery was on time and the guys that delivered it got it up to the stairs to the 2nd floor (town house) and were very respectful and didnt damage the walls. Very impressed.... Build time was about an hour and pretty straight forward. The drawer at the foot of the bed is a decent size. Overall really pleased and would recommend it.

Fantastic purchase Detroit Upholstered Sleigh Bed

We visited the Dreams showroom in Bolton and viewed the Detroit Upholstered Sleigh Bed, we liked the colour and the modern hard wearing fabric. The headboard is very comfortable and the footrest storage has excellent capacity and is easy to use. The delivery team delivered it to a room of my choice and it was quick and easy to build the bed. I'd definitely use Dreams again and can certainly recommend this bed.

Unique Frame

This is such a lovely bed frame, it is sturdy and strong, so will last for a long time. The drawer at the end of the bed is deep with plenty of room to put bedding etc... We ordered the double standard size and glad that we did, as it's very large, the king size would not had fitted in our bedroom. Anyone who buys this frame, will not be disappointed. You will be adding a unique fixture to your bedroom...

Great, Sturdy, Fashionable Design

Purchase this product and buying online was easy. Delivery arrived on time and communicated well. Looks amazing in the master bedroom and the pull out draw at the bottom is the equivalent of the 2 divan drawers I had previously but with the bonus of matching the design of the bed so as not to be seen. I built this myself. The took longer than the bed itself but overall only took a couple of hours.

Lockdown purchase/delivery was excellent

This is my second purchase from Dreams, both experiences have been excellent. The first was at the shop but this one was completely done online, the web chat help were knowledgeable and talked me through the process. The delivery team were prompt and efficient and polite throughout, even when I contacted with a problem to a part of the bed they replaced it very quickly, Id happily purchase again.

Love my new bed - Detroit Grey

I was extremely unsure of which bed to buy & researched it quite a bit. After much research I decided on the Detroit frame & I absolutely love it. It looks sleek, stylish & contemporary. It gets delivered in boxes which requires self assemble which was easy enough but it does take approx 2-3 hours & ideally needs 2 people. I opted for a king medium/firm pocket sprung mattress & I love it.

Detroit Upholstered Sleigh Bed Frame

Buying a bed has never been easier! I purchased this bed online and was briefed on all the specific of the bed the online website was very informative and easy to use, once paid for I received regular updated and great communication from the company from purchase to arrival, once delivered the bed was easy to put together and its very durable. I love the design and it looks incredible. Thanks!

Timeless and Elegant

I am so pleased with this bed, delivery was very fast, and the delivery men very helpful. The instructions provided with the bed were spot on and all pieces needed to build the bed where provided and labelled well. I built the bed on my own which took a bit longer than it would for the recommended two people but very pleased with the end result, it is a sturdy bed and pleasing to the eye.

Fantastic bed

Bought the superking, tge frame is solid for 2 heavy people could be linked to matress aswell but i am not worried about breaking the slats, i built the bed myself and it was easy to do but i do wish i paid for this service as i struggled a bit with the drawer but this was probably down to me than anything else, my feet no longer poke off the end of the bed either which is also a bonus.

Detroit upholstered sleigh bed

Oh my god this bed does not disappoint. It is big and luxurious and comfortable and I love the way the mattress sits inside the frame of the bed. Full marks to the guys who assembled the bed for me it was well with paying the extra money with this and the mattress and the new pillows I've just had such an enjoyable night sleep. If you're after that a new bed this could be the one for you

Beautiful and comfortable

I bought this bed a few weeks ago and I am very happy with it. The reason I am giving it four stars is that it took us a while to assemble due to one of the screws being wrongly labelled. We eventually figured out the problem by going through all the sets of screws one by one and comparing them with the pictures on the manual. Customer service was very supportive when we called them.

Strong bed frame

Well what can I say about this bed frame. Its beautiful when put together. The headboard is a good height and the drawer at the bottom is separate from the bed and easy to use without moving bed linen out of the way. The instructions to assemble the bed frame are fairly easy to understand, but take no notice of the time scale of 1hour, it took us 31/2 hours. Its a strong sturdy bed.

Absolutely amazing

I bought this frame about a month ago. It all came flat packed and the instructions were so simple to follow didnt take long to finish putting together. The bed itself is so nice the material used is lovely and having the drawer at the end is really handy! Also forgot to mention got this frame in an amazing deal and saved 100 so only paid 399 for a kingsize with a drawer! Bargain!

Great Bed

Assembled this bed last week and all I can say is wow! It is quite large (considerably wider than previous divan base). Delivery was prompt and cannot fault the delivery team who even waited 5 minutes for me to get back from the shop. Thoroughly recommend dreams and especially this bed as it is very sturdy and does not squeak. Easy to assemble but some people may find it a bit heavy.

Great quality.

This was delivered about two weeks ago, in the time specified. Hubby put it together on his own - no problems at all. Really comfortable, we already had a nearly new mattress so we only purchased the bed frame. Its a good height and the storage drawer at the end of the bed moves easily and is a nice sized storage area. Beautiful quality, looks lovely in our newly decorated bedroom.

Love my dreams sleigh bed

Absolutely love my sleigh bed. It looks so good in my bedroom. It came on a day that suited me. And the 2 guys were only about 30 mins building it and put the bed exactly where I wanted it. There was absolutely no mess left. There us a bottom drawer which has a large storage capacity. The bed us very sturdy. And enhances any bedroom. I would absolutely recommend this bed to anyone.

Strong sturdy frame, bad use of storage space

Decent frame and very strong, still can be moved easily once set up. The only reason the lower star is because the drawer under the bed looked to be full size but in reality it's only half the bed. This is due to the support beam in the centre of the bed, so atleast it's a decent reason. However they could have added two drawers on the side of the bed to ensure better use of space.

Lovely bed & Excellent service!

Love this bed! Took a little while to assemble but the instructions & tools included made it simple to do. Dreams were very helpful throughout the buying process & kept me informed with delivery details etc. The delivery drivers were excellent too! They were polite & very careful to take all the necessary COVID-19 safety precautions & took the packages to the bedroom for us.

Great bed ever

I bought this bed its very good leather is nice clean easily big comfortable bed i really loved it has a draw enought to put spair blanket and pillow very happy with my purchas with dream And very strong bed slat are proper wood strong ,,and the delivery men were very polite very good halpful carefully put all par up to my bedroom , thanks dream i buy from you guys always

Looks Great!

I bought this bed nearly 2 months ago to replace my old wooden one. I'd always wanted a sleigh style bed and this didn't disappoint. It's a perfect height for me and the headboard is very comfortable for resting against. The underbed storage is an added bonus as the large, deep drawer is at the end of the bed instead of the side which is ideal for the shape of my room.

Very detailed and high quality

I bought this bed frame almost two weeks now since it was delivered, and was and still amazed on the quality standard and its attention to details of its definition. Soft touch leather, was very straight forward when assembling it. In fact it has given a thought of purchasing another one for our other room. Our son just couldn't wait to jump on to it and sleep.

Looks lovely. Fingers crossed it's comfortable.

I'm happy with the bed it's self. I'm not happy with how long it has taken to get replacement bits for a brand-new bed. The bed it self is lovely the service on the other hand is disappointing. I have had my bed for a month now and I still haven't manage to sleep on it. The quality of the material on the bed looks good. I don't know if it's comfy or not yet.

High quality and easy to assemble

Well made bed, very solid with a comfortable head board. Great under bed storage draw, holds lots of bedding and spare pillow or two. Was able to assemble the product alone, and under an hour. The only slight down side was the enormous quantity of cardboard that packaged it. It would have been 5 stars if delivery had taken the card away after delivery.

Sleek and stylish bed

A fantastic bed. It looks sleek and stylish with a fantastic medium grey upholstered finish. The headboard and foot are sturdy and slats are very secure. It also features a very spacious pull out draw at the bottom of the bed. The draw is fashioned with a dark wood effect and is on wheels for easy pull out. This draw can easily fit all my bedding in.

Great bed for price

Great bed for the price, especially for a super king! Fairly simple to put together between two of us - It was the drawers that took the longest, be prepared to spare about two hours of your time to put it all together from start to finish. It is great quality for the price and I would highly recommend, we have ours in the master room and love it.

Strong and sturdy frame. Bed looks quality.

Straight forward to assemble. Easy to follow instructions and very solid bed frame. There is no movement in the bed at all once assembled and the mattress is really comfy and plush too. The drawer takes a bit of getting used to as you have to get right down low and open/pull out from the bottom, but apart from that, were really happy with it.

Great service and lovely bed!

Extremely comfortable and sturdy. Im a large guy and this is the best bed weve had for many years. The storage drawer is really big and useful too and when closed you wouldnt even know its there. The delivery guys were excellent and had it built in under an hour. I must also mention they were very COVID aware and acted safely in our home.

Brilliant bed and service

Beautiful bed. Love the headboard and drawer at the bottom. We chose a bed with a foot rest so little one doesnt fall out and its worked so far. The drawer at the end is useful but not as large as I thought it would be. The guys who made it for us were excellent and built it quickly. Took their shoes off and kept the 2m distance from us.

Bed frame

Quality and high back to bed post, without sticking out to far and wasting space in a bedroom. Tried a number in store with the height differences and look of beds. Need to make sure you factor in mattress when looking at bed Frame. Don't look at price when shopping, try and see what will give you the most enjoyable but supportive sleep.

Beautiful, strong bed

Ive had this bed for only three weeks but Im so glad I bought it. It feels very sturdy and looks very beautiful in my bedroom. Id have given it five stars if the pull out drawer had some sort of handle or groove to pull. That said, it is easy to pull out and provides a fantastic amount of storage for my bedsheets, blankets and duvets.


My bed got delivered yesterday, unlike the nor so cheap rubbish that most companies sell these days this bed actually exceeded all my expectations. Its extremely well made, looks more expensive than it actually was. The delivery team where fantastic and we only had to wait a few days for delivery too!! Annnnnnd its just so comfy :)

A Truly Dream Bed

I'm so happy with my new bed. It's very comfortable and sturdy and the hidden drawer at the foot of the bed is really spacious. The high headboard is amazing to lean against and I can now completely chill out at weekends. I can thoroughly recommend this beautiful bed, it was worth every penny and was very easy to assemble.

Super modern, super smart, super comfy

This bed has a modern, smart finish and looks great in our bedroom. The Superking is wider than our previous superking and covered our bedside electrical outlets - it took 4 people to move it a couple of inches after removal of drawer and mattress. I would definitely recommend having Dreams build it for you as we did.

Classic, Comfortable & Classy

What a great choice we made for a wonderful looking king size bed ! The colour is a perfect grey and the material robust but very smooth to the touch. Dreams delivery was spot on and overall we are delighted with the fantastic value and perfect addition to our new bedroom. We can highly recommend buying the Detroit.

Great looking bed

This is a great looking and sturdy bed. Im knocking one star off because of a manufacturing defect on one part of the draw which has left it unusable for two weeks until dreams send another one out. I guess I just got unlucky ! As I said before great bed, the defect is something thats occurred probably in transit.

Detroit Upholstered Sleigh Bed frame

I am so happy with our new 'Detroit Upholstered Sleigh' bed frame from Dreams. The quality is of a high standard and is very comfy and sturdy. The 'hidden' storage drawer is perfect for storing spare bed linen. All in all, I am very happy with this bed and would highly recommend this style of bed frame from Dreams.

Stylish & Practical

Lovely, stylish bed with under bed storage for added practicality. This is the second time I have purchased this type of bed from Dreams. This version is slightly updated but equally easy to assemble and looks really nice. Comfortable headboard too, if you like to read or watch TV in bed. No complaints from me.

Awesome Quality

Very happy with this product, was extremely easy to assemble my 13 year old son did it for me. Made my life so much easier as the delivery was taken to the room where I wanted it. One point I would raise is that the draw unit does not come out straight as it has no guides in place. (That's just me being picky)

Double bed .... .............................

The reason for the 4 stars is the dimensions that is stated is bigger than what the frame actually is as i ordered double as kingsize wouldnt of fitted in the space i had but is alot smaller than should be so i wish i ordered kingsize now as im assuming it would of been smaller than stated and would of fitted.

Nice chunky bed

Lovely bed, very happy, the slats are solid and thicker than the bed we had before,we did have a part missing from the drawer which fits under the bed, rang them up and two friendly men came out about two weeks later (in this current times) and fixed it, customer service was great too, would recommend to all

Lovely bed and a nice height

The bed was fairly easy to assemble and the quality is good, I have an on going issue in that the base of the drawer was broken and the replacement was broke in the same place so looks to be a packing issue from the manufacturers. The third try is due at the end of the month so hopefully it will be whole.

1st Class product and Service

The product ,as expected , was great quality and fantastic value for money , however the value added extras such as 1st class service from the staff at the store and the updates with regards to delivery via email is what stands out the most. We will absolutely be returning to Dreams for future purchases.

Detroit sleigh Bed

Not high quality bur well put together. Only took 30 min to build the main part so you can sleep on it. The quality of the matress is what will make all the difference. Purchased because we liked the design. Only down point was delivery took 3 months. with very poor communication on what was happening.

Not too bad

Fairly good build experience except for the feet. There was no explaination or indication anywhere that the feet had caps on to protect the screwthreads. None of the other bolts had any protection covers on. Also, when i placed the mattress on the bedframe, the mattress suffered splinters from the wood

Solid bed

Big frame..big slats..easy to put together Only downside is the silly bolts to stick the slats down so I used my own screws as you cant fighting the bolts in the small gap because the metal gram on the inside..otherwise great bed very high back and the drawer at the fron is very handy for bed sheets

Detroit Sleigh Bed Frame

Excellent bed and excellent service. The frame is really well made; sturdy and strong with no movement. The arch of the headboard means that it clears the the skirting board before meeting the wall so it looks good and is supported. The slats are substantial and the blanket draw a good, generous size.

looks great

I got this a month or so ago and after putting it together was a little worried the slats wouldn't hold up as they didn't have any support in the middle but they seem to be good so far, it is quite big but looks really nice and modern and the hidden draw at the bottom is great for storing blankets

My Dreams experience.

We are delighted with our Detroit Sleigh Bed Frame, it is an excellently constructed from good quality materials. It was assembled by one of Dreams Delivery Crews. Despite all the restrictions and troubles the whole experience with Dreams was an experience I would recommend to anyone. Thank You.

Detroit upholstered sleigh bed frame

Purchased it not very long ago, but i havent slept better, its a very strong and comfortable bed, holds the mattress very well and once i sleep for the night, throughout the night i sleep like a baby until morning where i feel relaxed and energetic. Best choice i made in a long time!!!

Could not be happier!

Fell in love with this bed in store and even more in my bedroom. Very easy to put together, a solid frame and made of a high quality material. Most definitely the best bed I have purchased. Couldn't be happier. Everyone that come over has commented about how grand this bed looks.


Purchased for my sons room, me and my partner assembled in no time, lovely sturdy quality with the handy addition of a hidden drawer! My son loves his new bed and the mattress purchased from dreams also is very comfortable. Really lovely stylish bed and very happy with purchase.

Solid and beautiful

I've had this bed for a month now and I couldn't be happier. It was easy to build. Looks great. Really nice beautiful looking leather. Very solid. No squeaks or creeks. Good storage drawer. It also has loads of room behind the drawer that you can slide boxes into Great bed.

Fabulous quality and value for money

The bed is even better in reality than in the website pictures. The quality makes it look so much more expensive than the actual price. A classy bed with a great secret end drawer which is huge and fabulous storage. No having to lift the bed and bedding - just a simple drawer

Great Design

Looks great and Im really pleased with the purchase. Its good to know this takes up more space than a standard bed due to the rolled headboard and end of the bed so do measure up before purchasing. The drawer on this bed is a really stylish storage solution. Great design.

Excellent Quality Bed Frame

I bought this bed frame fews weeks ago, after reading the reviews for this bedframe i went ahead with the purchase. The build and material quality Is excellant, its sturdy and easy to clean. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a long lasting bed.

Detroit Sleigh Bed Frame (Grey)

Great looking bed and feels like a quality product. Large and imposing in Kingsize form. Not the easiest to assemble - you have to contort yourself into various positions to get the various bolts tight! The Allen keys included are too small and flimsy for some of the tasks.


Ive had this bed for over a month now and Ive found no faults with it. It was easy to put together between my partner and myself. Its sturdy and looks very stylish in our room. The slats (straight slats) are surprisingly comfortable for myself, even with back problems.

Absolute perfect!

I do not ever write comments but this has been absolutely amazing so far. Took so long to build so I suggest paying for the build instead. The mattress bought with is I cannot fault. Everything worth every penny from the sale in the shop, delivery and finally the comfort!

Bedframe and mattress purchase

Good service in the shop and efficient delivery of the bedframe and mattress, we choose to build the bed and the delivery guys gave us some helpful advice. The bedframe was straight forward to put together and all was as expected. Please with our purchase as is the cat.

Great bed for a small double and lovely colour

I bought this bed for my 19 year old son, he is really pleased with it, particularly for sitting up in bed as the headboard is really comfy. Having the drawer at the end is a great place to store all of his bedding plus spare pillows and a sleeping bag, lots of room

Very well made

This bed is beautiful quality. Very sturdy. There is a slight lip around the edge which prevents the mattress from moving about. My only issue would be with the drawer. It is not attached by runners so can come out at an angle which then makes it hard to put back in.

Beautiful bed

It is absolutely beautiful but we were missing a bag of camlocks so we had to purchase. Lovely bed, massive space underneath and we are so happy with it. There was a couple stitches that looked a little funny but cannot tell when bed up. Would definitely recommend:)

Assembling the Detroit Sleigh Bed.

Not that hard to assemble together. Jus need 2 people and the instructions are easy to follow. Just try be careful when putting the drawer together as mine was damaged when I unwrapped it from the packaging but Dreams was very prompt & quick to deal with it. Quality


I bought this a month ago and I couldnt be more happier that I did the frame is beautiful it hold my mattress very well and is super sturdy. I love the oversized drawer which allows to hold more storage if you dont have mouth around your home it is truly amazing!

Absolutely love this bed it is huge sturdy and comfortable i don't want to leave it and find myself getting back in throughout the day i suffer from arthritis and fibromyalgia and this bed is the best ive found where i can lay in comfort and finally get some sleep

Looks amazing

As soon as I saw this bed frame I immediately wanted it, the material is brilliant quality and it looks really good not to mention the big draw at the end of the bed! Its lovely and high and the headboard is brilliant for sitting against in bed, brilliant product
