Why our sleep experts loved it

The Ealing Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame is sold by Dreams and manufactured by the internal brand called The Dreams Workshop.  The Ealing is the start of a growing trend in the Dreams bed frame inventory that is seeing them branch out more and more toward ottoman storage options over traditional frames. The reasoning is simple however, Ottoman frames are not only more useful, thanks to their built in full-surface-area design, they're also more frequently higher reviewed. People simply love ottoman bed frames.

The Ealing is a complete solution, this means that not only do you get the frame and the ottoman solution underneath, you also get the pictured vertically-stitched padded headboard to rest your head against while watching TV or reading a book. The padding does a great job of offering depth and comfort to a stylish and textured fabric frame.

With a depth of 29cm, the storage on offer is impressive, giving more than ample room for linens, sheets and other bedding that you want to keep hidden. As far as practical storage solutions go, this one's a winner. 

Reviews for the Ealing are good, with over 600+ at time of review and an impressive 96% consumer satisfaction. Customers remarked on the good space saving features of the base, while others commented on how easy it all fits together, making it an easy go-to for those that don't want to spend the day having to relearn DIY. Among the reviews surrounding ease of use were more positive tones surrounding the build quality and design, with many remarking on the modern and timeless design that aims to please.

Negative reviews were far harder to come buy with  a small handful surrounding poor lead times through the pandemic. This is something that has since been rectified and while delivery times have never been particularly impressive with the Dreams lineup, they are at least now reflective of when you will receive the item. We had 2 more complaints surrounding a strong chemical smell that was lingering longer than the 24hours you would normally expect but both of these were from the same time period a year ago which would suggest potential storage issues surrounding one particular batch and not something indicative of further issues or scrutiny.

The Ealing Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame is available in two different colours of grey and silver. I typically recommend the darker grey however, in the case of the Ealing the grey is perhaps a little two dark for my tastes and so the silver likely wins out for me.

Once built up, the bed feels sturdy and does the job well. However, it was quite problematic to put together in the first place in my experience and caused quite a bit of frustration. I'm well used to putting together items like this and this one was a bad experience unfortunately. I'm not a fan of the board design which lines the bottom in the storage part of it. They just sit on the floor not attached to anything and are supposed to line up and sit flat across the bottom. I had a bit of difficulty doing this as they seemed to be too large for the area and took quite a bit of effort to place. In addition some of the bolts used in the process seemed to not fit properly and were ridiculously difficult to screw on. Even bending the spanner used to try to tighten them. I also had a bad experience with Dreams on this occasion. Part of the bed delivered was faulty and could not be used. It took a good couple of weeks to replace this part and customer service were not particularly helpful. I also had to dispose of the bulky faulty part myself. Whilst I completely understand the challenges posed during the pandemic and change in processes as a result, I expected more from dreams on this occasion to make up for a poor customer experience.

I ordered this bed frame due to tight space constraints on a house we bought with fitted furniture. I also wanted an Ottoman due to the amount of storage space you gain. We waited 3 months for the bed to arrive due to being told it was popular then was in stock then wasn't available then finally it arrived in January despite it not being available on the website any longer. Construction-wise it's OK but the main flaw is that the base of the frame isn't there, other Ottomans I've seen have supports at the bottom onto which you place panels to keep things off the floor. Not this one, you construct the frame and the base just sits on the floor. Except it doesn't fit, the boards are too big and we've had to opt to not put them in and simply have it open to the carpet. The second flaw is one of the bolt holes to secure the lifters to the mattress base is 0.5cm out of alignment, this is too far to try to push a bolt so couldn't be used. Not flaws you expect in a 600 bed frame. But after all that, it's a decent frame, tonnes of storage space due to the Ottoman style and the frame and lifters are very strong, definitely takes the weight off a good king size mattress to make it easier to push down.

Took Dreams 3 attempts to finally get everything right. Initially delivered with 3 faulty pieces. 2nd attempted they offered assembly and to switch out the faulty pieces. However the footboard was switched with another marked up footboard. Once assembled the bed board was skewed and longer then the bed frame and not sitting flush against the footboard. Also the floorboards didnt fit snuggly together. I raised this with the assembly crew but they just made it out as if thats how its assembled. Worst of all they damaged my property in the process. I spoke to customer services who offered a new bed and money for the repair to the property. Although there was some confusion on the 3rd attempt, as they expected only delivery and not assembly the guy was decent enough to hear my out and fix my problems. Im happy with the bed but was an unnecessarily long drawn out process. On the plus side customer services were helpful and keen to resolve my problems.

My boyfriend and I are massively impressed with this bed. Despite reading a few reviews on other websites that there had been issues with Dreams delivering their beds during the current Corona situation, we were desperate for a new bed so thought we would take the risk! The bed arrived less than a week from purchase, on the date and time that was given to us, so we were very pleased. The bed itself was reasonably easy to put up and it looks amazing! We have been looking for a reasonable priced ottoman for ages, of good quality and so glad we have picked this one! Although it may be helpful to know that the Silver colour advertised is very much so just a light grey and we suspect that the other grey is fairly dark, so may be something to consider when choosing which suits you best. Thank you Dreams!

I always buy my beds from Dream's and have recently updated my own bed to a Sutton. I've jus redecorated my sons room and bought an Ealing. These beds are Ottoman beds, with plenty of storage underneath. The beds inc mattress are of a comfortable height to get in and out of bed easily. They are very comfortable and headboard is included. When i ordered it was one price, prior to delivery the price dropped, i called Dreams and they price matched to the discount without any issue. Im currently choosing the next bed i need for a single room. I paid for Dreams to build my bed which gives me peace of mind that its been done correctly. Would definetly recommend. The only possible negative is, it would be nice to have more colour choices, that are a little more what i would class as girlie.

Very well made. Remember to have your bed completely in position when you build it as you wont be able to move it when its built. Its solid !the only negative i have found at the moment is its very difficult to close the storage lid however its not a problem as i just call on hubby to do it! It should better in time once the hydraulic struts loosen off.Bags of storage space and better mattress support than slatted framed beds for mattress comfort too. Its on the low side from the floor but not too low for getting up im 60 and have no problem leaping out of bed in the morning! Value for money especially as I got mine in the sale. It will last many years.i would definitely recommend it looks so stylish and the neutral grey will go with any decor.

I am very happy with my Ealing Ottoman Bed and would recommend to friends. The delivery was made by two very pleasant guys who delivered the bed packages that were very heavy to the room I wanted them in. The bed came in three boxes with instructions that were easy to understand, though I would advise to have someone to help as it was easy once I coaxed a friend with a bottle of wine, but I think if i was alone it would have been much more difficult. Once built I thought the gas springs would have no chance of lifting my very heavy Hypnos mattress, but I was wrong as it lifts it with ease and closes very softly without slamming closed. So to wrap up, it is a great bed for a reasonable price with great customer service. Thank you Dreams

I spent three days shopping online for my new beds; and I had very specific things I needed the bed to meet. After several hours and feeling like I had given up, I landed on the Dreams website and locked eyes on the Ealing Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame. The purchasing process was quick, and I was able to lock in a suitable delivery date quite easily. I opted in for the assembly men, to save myself time (and stress) - and on the day, the delivery and assembly was done professionally and quickly, observing all of the COVID-19 guidelines as well. I was very impressed with the final look; it's been a few weeks now and the hydraulic lifting function is as smooth as when it was built. Very happy with my purchase, and would definitely recommend it!

We chose this ottoman bed for the hard base, we didn't want slats as our youngest thinks our bed is a trampoline now she's banned. Lots of room underneath and easy to lift up and down, I would of liked the bed to be a little higher but that's me liking a higher base. The base panels that line the floor do not fit together, we tried all different ways but they just wouldn't lay flat together so there is a overlap but doesn't affect the use of the bed. We was kept updated when our bed would be delivered. The day before we was given a time slot and on the day of delivery the driver phoned to say when he would be with us. It's a really good strong bed with plenty of storage space underneath

Really impressed with this bed. Easy to put together, instructions say 2 person assembly but I managed on my own safely. So much storage room, exceeded my expectations - I can fit multiple handbags, shoes, seasonal clothing, blankets and theres still space left! Hydraulic mechanism makes it so easy to lift up and close as it requires very little effort, the hydraulics really assist so you dont have to bear much of the weight at all. Material on bed is lovely, appears as if it will be hardwearing over time. Overall very stable bed, makes a change from my previous creaky old bed! Very pleased, have already recommended this bed to friends and family.

We ordered this bed for our daughter. It's her first double, moving on from a bunk bed. The style is simple, modern and unfussy. It's construction is straightforward and the look is exactly what she wanted. We paid for the build service and I was glad because the delivery team were lovely and got the task done in around 20 minutes. I'm sure it would have taken us longer ! The product is exactly what we wanted and has so much storage capacity. The operation of raising the base is smooth and easy. I would note that it is quite a heavy item and not easy to move once built - it does not slide easily - so build it where you want it to be !

Excellent ottoman bed, the instructions for assembly was straight forward, very well designed and robust, gives a lot of room for storage under the mattress by the lift up, headboard and bed base has same fabric, which gives such a superb neat finish, Dreams had been recommended by our daughter, who had bought their bed from Dreams, we ordered online and delivery was as we requested, delivery men being very helpful, putting the bed in the bedroom of choice, assembly was straight forward following the easy to understand instructions, very happy with the bed and would fully recommend Dreams to anyone who is thinking of buying a bed.

Do this have wooden slats? Looking for something quite sturdy

Answer: This bed frame does not have wooden slats, it comes with a wooden base board which offers great support and an enhanced level of sturdiness compared to wooden slats. As this is an ottoman, we do recommend a combined mattress and bedding weight between 25kg to 50kg for easy opening and closing of this ottoman.

What weight of mattress does the king size hold and the total combined weight with 2 people sleeping?

Answer: Thank you for reaching out with your question. We currently dont specify a weight limit to the bed frames, however all bed frames are tested to the British Standard EN1725 structural test for strength and stability. You should be able to utilise any UK standard king size mattress with this bed. .

How easily opened & closed is the ottoman? We have found a lot of ottoman bed mechanisms very flimsy and difficult to close.

Answer: This is dependant on the person, however we recommend a combined mattress and bedding weight of between 20kg and 50kg (dependant on size) for easy opening and closing of the ottoman. Full details can be found in the specification table.Many thanks,

Hi, I was not clear in a previous question. I wanted to know if the Ealing ottoman bedframe can be custom made (special order) to have a side opening instead of end opening.

Answer: Apologies in any confusion. We do not accept special orders and therefore the Ealing is only available in end opening ottoman storage. For side opening ottomans, please view the Wilson, Tokyo, William or Holmes.

Hello For the small double size length is 204 cm, would a euro mattress fit? 200cm length? Or is the width the issue? I am looking for a long queen bed for my ever growing teenage son.

Answer: Unfortunatley a euro size mattress would not fit this size. The length takes into consideration the depth of the headboard as well, so it is an overall measurement.Unfortunatley we do not do queen size beds.Many thanks

Does this mattress and this bed actually fit together flush? IE, will the mattress be to short for this bed / risk of any overhang? Ealing Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame and Dream-team Kirkham combination Mattress (King) Thanks, Craig

Answer: The products should fit flush, however please be aware with mattresses there is a +/-2cm tolerance on all mattresses due to the build of them, so there is a chance there might be a slight difference between them.Many thanks
