What Makes It Great

My wife and I bought this bed after popping in to a Dreams showroom. It looked sturdy and well-built, and matched what our daughter had been asking for in terms of a bunk bed, so we ordered it. The sales and delivery staff at Dreams were exceptional. I can't fault the service of the company at all. However, there is a design flaw in this model of bed which means that when you've spent some time constructing the bed frame, the last thing the instructions advise you to do is to fix the slats in place with wood screws. However, the frame underneath is not robust enough to take the wood screws, so when you screw them in, the wood in the frame beneath splits, compromising the integrity of the bed. This happened to me when I was constructing the bed for the first time, and to their credit, Dreams arranged for a replacement part to be sent out and sent a team to deconstruct and rebuild the bed for me with the new part, minimising the inconvenience to my family. Unfortunately, when the team were screwing in the slats on the replacement piece of frame, the wood split again meaning that at present I am now waiting for Dreams to arrange another delivery of another replacement part. So, whilst I was impressed with the efforts of the sales, the delivery and the customer service team, I feel that they have all been let down by a disappointingly designed bed frame.

Questions and Answers

Is it possible to assemble without the ladder (as we just want to use bottom bunk for a while)? 

Answer: Hi , Yes this would be possible, you don’t have to set up the top half at the same time. Thank you.

What’s the minimum sealing height needed for this bunk bed?

Answer: Hi , This frame is 150cm from the floor to the highest point which is 5ft, so the bottom bunk has 70 cm of room before you put a mattress on it, so as long as there is roughly 2 ft above the child's head this should be fine but we take no responsibility for your choice on ceiling height. Thank you.

Could you fit a trundle under this bunk bed? 

Answer: Hi This Bunk bed is not designed to fit a trundle under it. Thank you for your question. Kind Regards, Robin

Which mattresses would you recommend for these and can as it states be turned into two single beds? Thanks 

Answer: Hi , Any 3'0 standard single mattress would be appropriate for this bed frame. If you are choosing to use the frame as a bunk bed at any point, the top bunk mattress should only have a maximum depth of 15cm. You can view our range of single mattresses here: https://www.dreams.co.uk/mattresses/single Thank you for your question.

How much gap underneath the bottom bed please?

Answer: Hi , The gap underneath the bottom bed is 18cm. Thank you for your question.

It states in the item description that these can be separated into two singles and yet in a previous response to a customer you’ve stated that this item is not designed to do so. Can you please clarify whether this is possible or not?

Answer: Hi , Yes, this bunk bed can be separated into two single beds. Thank you for your question.

Hello What is the maximum weight of the top bunk?

Answer: The maximum weight for the top bunk is 16 stone (101.6kg). Please bear in mind that this will include the weight of the mattress. Kind Regards, Dreams

What length mattress should I get for the hutch in bunk bed 

Answer: Any standard single mattress would be suitable for the Hutchin Bunk, however when purchasing a mattress for the top bunk, we recommend that the mattress is 15cm high or less in order to comply with safety requirements. Kind Regards, Dreams

I'm really confused. In the description of the bed it says it can be converted into tow beds but then in other customer questions the response has said that it cannot. Please can a clarification be made. Many thanks.

Answer: We apologise for any confusion - to confirm, this bed frame CAN be converted into two single beds. Kind Regards, Dreams

Can it convert to two single bed?

Answer: Yes, this bed frame can be converted into two single beds. Kind Regards, Dreams

Is there a fee to get the bunks built if so how much is this please? 

Answer: Yes, our delivery team are able to assemble this bunk bed for you - this option can be selected at the checkout. The price of this service will be £70. Kind Regards, Dreams

We have a single hitch in already, can we but another hutchin to make into a bunk bed at all? 

Answer: The Hutchin Bunk can be converted into two single beds, however you will be unable to purchase two single Hutchin frames and convert these to a bunk as there will be no ladder available. Kind Regards, Dreams

Where are the instructions to convert into 2 single beds?

Answer: This bunk is built as two separate single beds and then these are joined together. If you do not wish to construct as a bunk, simply assemble the beds as per the assembly instructions and then do not join. Kind Regards, Dreams

can the ladder be fitted either side and how deep are the steps?

Answer: The ladder cane be positioned on either side. Kind Regards, Dreams

Can the ladder be assembled at the other end of the bed, i.e the left hand side as you look at it?

Answer: Yes, the ladder can be assembled to be positioned on either the left or right hand side - this is the customers choice. Kind Regards, Dreams

Could you please clarify if the ladder can be fitted to the left hand side as there's conflicting answers to this question. Thank you.

Answer: Apologies for the further confusion, after checking with the Buying team we can confirm the ladder can only go on the right hand side of this bed frame.

Amazing Quality Fantastic Product!

We purchased this for our 2 sons aged 7 & 8, being very active boys we needed something well made, good quality & that would last them for a number of years, not to mention look good too. I was so impressed with not only the quality of the beds, but even down to the packaging they came in, the tiny nuts and bolts & screws were all laid out in seperate labelled compartments, easy instructions & so easy to put together. The bunk beds themselves are beautifully made and sturdy, fantastic quality and the boys adore them! The grey colour is such a nice alternative to traditional white or pine, really makes the beds modern and gives them longevity. Overall if you are considering a set of bunk beds i would not shop anywhere else, i have seen similar that are cheaper but you truly get what you pay for with these i would highly recommend these. Delivery drivers were also brilliantly helpful, polite and professional, cannot fault the overall service we are very very happy and will most definately use Dreams again!!

Fantastic surprise!!

I bought this item for my 2 little ones - aged 4 and 6 - and put it together with the help of my sister. We managed it in just over an hour. The item came brilliantly packaged with no damage to any of the pieces. The instructions were very simple to follow and the majority of the bed was put together with just an Allen key. The pieces felt quite well made and everything slotted together with ease. It does take two to lift one bed onto the other but even this process was surprisingly easy. The only difficult bit was screwing all the slats down as there are no predrilled holes. Once all put together the bed felt very sturdy and I haven't been able to get my kids off it - everything they do now needs to take place on the bunk beds!! The colour is great - I went for the white - very pleased with the purchase and would definitely recommend.

Great bunker for kids

I waited a while for the grey colour and was so happy i did as it was just the colour for the kids bedroom.. very easy to assemble quickly with 2 people. Be sure to follow the guidelines otherwise you will have wasted time doing it yourself without the instructions! The colour can get marks very easy so ensure to place it away from the doors or somewhere where the bed doesnt get any impacts from objects... i learnt the hard way. Overall very pleasing and the kids love it!

Excellent bunk bed

We bought this bed about 1 month ago and I am nothing but pleased with it. From start to finish dreams service was excellent and very communicable. Delivery arrived exactly on time so no waiting around. The bed it’s self was well packaged and very easy to build with easy step by step instructions. It’s so sturdy and makes no creaking sounds at all. My boys love it!! Would 100% recommend this product and I’m pleased we chose it after lots of research on other bunk beds!

Great value

I got this bunk bed in the sales. It was delivered quickly. Easy to assemble (took 2 of us about 40 mins to assemble). It’s sturdy and the colour is stunning (I went for the grey one). Overall I’m really pleased and would recommend this to anyone looking for a reasonably priced sturdy bed. The only down side is that the steps are quite slim and slippery in socks do we have added rubber steppers to avoid any falls. Really happy.

Arrived marked but getting sorted! Otherwise fab!

These look great and were easy to assemble. They were scratched in places but Dreams however are sending out replacement parts and someone to change them over. My daughter loves them. The bedding that Dreams sell looks great with them also as you can see in the pic. It's a bargain & lovely quality. We went for quite a thick mattress on the bottom but you definitely need to stick to a 15cm mattress on top for safety.

Cracked and dented

We chose this as it appeared much sturdier than others available locally. Unfortunately ours arrived with split side structures and dented ends. The replacement parts sent several weeks later had paint chips and scuffs. The 3rd set were sent via quality control who informed they were not good enough to ship. Look great but need to be inspected before they are shipped from Vietnam to the customer!

Sturdy bunk beds

Well packaged with easy instructions to follow. Best building with two people, some bits such as the slats fiddly but two of us finished them within the hour. They look very nice and will suit my grandchildren although sturdy enough for adults. I would have liked the steps to be slightly wider but that's just for me going up to make the top bunk but I'm sure my grandchildren will cope well.

Brilliant for boisterous boys!

We are extremely pleased with these bunk beds. They are very sturdy and seem to withstand vast amounts of overly energetic playing! They were easy to assemble and look very smart in my son’s bedroom. The quality of the materials used are of high standard, the only reason I have not given a 5 star review is because you can’t change the position of the ladder, which is slightly inconvenient.

Lovely bed but marks easily

We chose the bed in white but unfortunately the first delivery was damaged, as was the 2nd, 3rd time lucky and we now have a fully assembled bunk bed. My daughter loves it, but it does mark easily, be very careful when using the allen key, as this can cause pencil like marks if it touches the paintwork. The bed is sturdy and looks lovely, just a shame it seems to mark so easily.

Cannot fault this product!

I don't often get around to leaving reviews for products I've bought but felt compelled to this time as I'm so impressed. The quality of this product is top notch and it's really straightforward to build. All the parts are all clearly labelled and the instructions very easy to follow. I managed to put it together myself in about an hour and half and so pleased with the final result!

Good quality bunk beds

Well packed, good clean assembly instructions. Took about 3hrs in total to assemble. The beds are strong and of good quality. The wooden dowels used to connect the two beds seem a bit flimsy and split when driving in the screws. All in all a good product and at a good of price. Make sure you use a mattress no bigger that 15cm deep in the top bunk!

Exceptional Bed

We bought this just over2 weeks ago and our daughters absolutely love it. The bed is very sturdy, and consequently very safe so we have peace of mind. It’s looks absolutely wonderful and the colour is just fabulous. Will certainly recommend to anyone looking for a bunk bed. Oh did I also mention that it was a steal at the price we got it for.

Great comfort

We bought the bed for our two girls and what a bid difference now we find it hard to get them out of bed it’s that comfortable we love getting our beds from dreams as me and my wife got ours and once again very comfortable and good nights sleep great prices would highly recommend them to anyone

Kids love it!

This arrived at the beginning of the month and my boys love it. Easy for them to get up and down and it's not too high which I was worried about. The colour is amazing. The build of it is simple enough but lots of screwi g of lats so make sure you have a drill to help you out.

Solid, attractive bunk beds

We were very impressed with the whole Dreams process, from ordering to delivery to construction. The instructions were clear and easy to follow with all of the parts labelled. I managed to put the whole thing together with my 5 year old son and he loves his new bed.

Good quality bunk bed

We bought this bunk bed for our four and a half year old son, it is well built and sturdy and seems to be able to withstand the tests of time. It is worth noting that this bed can be split into two single beds if required. Great bed, very happy with our purchase!

Looks great, kids love it!

We bought this a few weeks ago and it’s perfect. The two men who delivered it were so friendly, efficient and just lovely to my 4 year old, who was very excited about his new bed! :-) I would buy from Dreams again in a heartbeat (and probably will very soon!)

Very happy 4 year old!

We've had our bunk bed for about 6 weeks now, my 4 year old loves his new 'big boy bed' it's a beautiful grey colour, nice and sturdy. Fantastic quality. No issues. Dreams delivered when they said they would and phoned half an hour beforehand.

Love these bunk beds

Love these bunk beds, very easy to assemble by me and my husband. Good quality wood. We are very happy with them. My 6 year old and easily clb the ladder and is safe up on top bunk and his younger brother is very happy on the bottom bunk.

Weeping slats

Poor quality pine slats still weeping sap meaning we couldn’t finish building them. We them ordered replacements and because we couldn’t take ANOTHER day off work had to wait nearly a month for them to be replaced. Very disappointing.

Sturdy bed

Bought this bed for a 5 and 10 year old. Very solid and will last until they grow up. Quality is bit more though with some dents and chips in wood. Worth paying extra to have it built as it even took the builders a while!

Fantastic

Bought a month ago and son is delighted! The quality of material is outstanding and solid. The wood has a great finish. Customer service of delivery men who dropped off and built was brilliant. Would highly suggest.

Very Happy with the quality of this bed

Easy to assemble, the boys love it. Can be used as two seperate beds until they get older to make it up as a bunk bed. Lovely grey paint finish, looks expensive and its a very sturdy solid bed.

Excellent Bed, very strong and sturdy

We decided to replace the double-decker bed of two of our sons. We pleased at choosing Dreams. The assembling of the bed was done to an excellent standard. The bed itself is of a high quality.

Great

Great solid bed, delivery was on time and came with all the parts and fixings in good order. A frustrating purchase nevertheless given they reduced the price right after I bought it.

Excellent

Bought a month or so ago, the men who assembled it were polite and helpful and on time. The bed is very sturdy without being chunky and the children are thrilled with it.

Solid and sturdy design, looks very sleek

Bought the item for a new house and found it to be very simple to assemble as long as you are handy with screwdriver. Kids love it and we save quite a bit of room.
