Why our sleep experts loved it

The Dream Team Divan Bed Base from Dreams is a fascinating product that's been stirring up quite a bit of chatter. At first glance, it's not just a mere foundation for your mattress; it aspires to be so much more. With built-in drawers and a plethora of fabric options, it's clear that this Divan base aims to be a cut above the rest. But does it hit the mark? Well, let's dive in and dissect this piece of bedroom furniture.

Starting with the design and aesthetics, the Divan base is a modern marvel. It comes in a variety of fabric options, including a luxury ash fabric that has been lauded for its contemporary flair. The silver ball feet are a nice touch, adding a dash of elegance to the overall look. Personally, I find the design to be both contemporary and versatile. It's the kind of piece that could easily fit into a variety of interior styles, thanks to its thoughtful fabric choices and meticulous attention to detail.

When it comes to build quality, the Divan base generally receives high marks. Customers describe it as sturdy and well-constructed, which is always a good sign. However, it's not all sunshine and rainbows. Some reviews have pointed out minor issues with the finishing, such as excess fabric inside the base and the manner in which the fabric is stapled to the frame. In my opinion, while the base is undoubtedly robust, there's room for improvement in these finishing touches. A little more finesse could elevate this product from good to excellent.

Now, let's talk about storage. One of the standout features here is the built-in drawers. They've been found to be quite handy for storing pillows, toys, and bed linens. But there's a catch—some customers were surprised to find that opting for two drawers didn't mean one on each side; instead, both were on one side. Additionally, these drawers aren't built for heavy lifting. I think the storage options are a practical addition, but a bit more clarity on drawer placement and weight limitations would go a long way in enhancing the user experience.

Assembly and installation are mostly a breeze. Many customers have managed to put the base together without breaking a sweat, some even doing it single-handedly. However, there are a few hiccups, such as pre-drilled holes for the headboard being spaced incorrectly. In my view, the assembly process is generally straightforward, but there's a need for tighter quality control to ensure that all components align perfectly for a hassle-free setup.

Mobility is a bit of a contentious point. While some find the castors to be a godsend for easy movement, others think they make the base a little too mobile for comfort. I see this as a double-edged sword—it's great for those who need to move the bed frequently but could be a drawback for those who prefer their bed to stay put.

Customer service is another area where the Divan base shines, albeit with some caveats. Many have praised the helpful sales staff and efficient delivery service. However, there are instances where customer service could be more consistent, especially when dealing with damaged products. From my perspective, Dreams generally does a good job in this department, but there's room for improvement to make the customer experience uniformly positive.

As for the price and value, the Divan base isn't the most budget-friendly option out there, but many feel that the quality justifies the cost, particularly when snagged during a promotional period. I concur that it offers good value for money, especially if you can catch it on sale. The features and build quality generally align well with its price point.

So, what's the final verdict? The Dream Team Divan Bed Base is a solid choice, but it comes with a few caveats. It's stylish, functional, and generally well-made, but there are some minor issues with finishing and assembly that you should be prepared for. Overall, I'd give it a rating of 8/10. It's a strong contender in the bed base market, but like anything, it's not without its flaws.

Took a while to adjust to my new bed 1st time it was delivered the head board was ripped and the 2 big draws only opened a tiny bit however they did replace both the following week and built it up for free draws worked fine on the guy pulling it out but still abit iffy on one side, it definitely seems shorter for a king size compared to my old leather sleigh bed i dont feel there is much space it seems more like a double, i had so much space in my other bed and seems as if my feet dangle over the edge im 6ft1 and the bed is meant to be 6ft6 very odd. It does look lovely in my room its quite high up compared to my old bed been very low.

We bought this bed in lockdown 2021 and we were not disappointed. Delivery was booked and available with 3 weeks of ordering and given an accurate delivery slot. The kingsize divan was delivered in 2 parts and well packaged so avoid any damages. it was easy to put together and took my husband less than an hour. The Headboard looks better than it did on the website and overall very pleased with the bed. The drawers are great for storage and open and close easily. We ordered during a 20% off promotion. i would not hesitate to order again from dreams.

I love my new divan base, very sturdy, beautiful material in my favourite colour of grey and the silver ball feet look very stylish against the grey giving the whole look a very luxurious aesthetic. Being a big girl i am feeling very safe and comfortable with this divan base and I feel it will last for years. I bought in the style with 2 drawers on the left hand side, there's plenty enough room to store other bedding /sheets or anything you like, just don't overload. Overall I'm very happy with this divan base.

We both want to thank Stephen & Joshua for their friendly, professional service. The Divan bed was promptly assembled after all protective packaging was removed. The old original bed and its drawers were also promptly removed for disposal and or recycling. We are so happy with the service and quality of our new bed that we have purchased a King Size divan from Dreams for the main bedroom. Kind regards, Philip & Farrah

I bought this bed base to replace a wood frame bed and, so far, I am happy with it. The base looks good and the ouside is finished well, giving the impression of luxury. Inside the base, the frame is as expected. My only issue with this base is that there is a lot of excess fabric inside which can get caught up on the drawers...I would expect it to have been trimmed given the price of the bed

Its always a dilemma when buying a new bed , but Dreams made the process easier fwith their sleep machine in the shop to identify the kind of mattress that was the best for me . Once identified, it was lovely not to be rushed and to take the time I wanted to try several beds multiple times until I settled on the one I wanted.

I have received my bed base couple of weeks ago and it's the best buy I have ever made. Few years ago I bought one of those bed frame with a lot of bolts and screws which was a pain to set up and not so comfortable. So in the next few weeks I'm going to purchase the headboard to go with my bed base.

Not a great finish the way the fabric is stapled to the frame. It is bunched up -not smooth. I think it makes the base look cheap as no care has been given to making this item. I would like to send you photos.

Can the super king divan bed be separated into two 3ft wide single size beds if necessary, assuming that we have fitted two 3ft wide mattresses to the bed.

Answer: AndyC2002This super king divan is connected from top to bottom not side to side so would not create two 'single size beds', we always suggest purchasing two single divans if this is the desired set up.Thank you for your question.Kind Regards,Robin

Is it possible to have one drawer each side with a two drawer Kingside bed?

Answer: Unfortunately the Drawers run down the same side. It is not possible to have these on separate sides. It might be worth you looking at the Flaxby or Silentnight Bases as this is an option on these brands.

Answer: The two drawer option only will have drawers on one side of the divan base. Unfortunately, we do not have an option to have it either end unless you choose to go for the 4 drawer divan base.Many thanks for the question.
