What Makes It Great

I purchased this bed back in February of this year. Straight away i knew there was something wrong because the bed didnt open fully and made and awful sound when opening or closing the bed. Any slight movement on the bed, even to sit on it made a screeching sound. We had Dreams come round to have a look and said the bolts in the head board where faulty so they made a date to return and change the head board. Unfortunately the bed was still making awful noises and it took 3 attempts so replace parts or try fault find. The last visit was to replace the whole bed which still hasn't fixed the noise. I'm utterly disappointed and will be going down to our local store to complain. I wouldn't even want another replacement bed if they offered it to me, as the bed obviously isnt made very well. Also, i dont really want another 4 guys packed into my bedroom again and marking my walls after the room has just been decorated.

Questions and Answers

Hi, Does this bed have castors for ease of movement?

Answer: Good afternoon, This bed frame does not have castors, but has solid feet which come as part of the head and foot end. To give an idea what it would be like to move, the frame weighs 111Kg as a double and 122Kg as a King. Please account for additional weight of a mattress being applied and any contents placed into the storage area. Kind Regards, Dreams

The bed base is advertised as solid base board storage, does this mean the part of the bed where the mattress sits is solid or sprung slats?

Answer: Hi , No this does not mean that, it means the storage in the bottom its boarded so you have a firm platform that your belongings sit upon. Thank you.

Answer: The double headboard is 163cm wide and the king is 179cm wide. Kind Regards, Dreams

Please could you confirm if the back of the headboard is also uholstered? If I buy the bed the back of it will be visible so I need to make sure it looks aesthetically as pleasing as the rest of the bed frame. Thank you

Absolutely stunning!

I ordered this a few months ago as it was on offer, dreams happily gave me their latest delivery date as I didn't need it whilst the building work was going on. It was delivered on the day they said and gave good notice, the delivery guys were so helpful and took it upstairs for us. We've only just got around to putting it together and I am over the moon! The quality exceeds what I thought, the bed is so soft and beautiful, and the lift up mechanism for the under be desired storage is fantastic! Looking at all of the pieces we thought it would take hours to build but it took under an hour and that was with a 3 and 5 year old "helping" us out. Was hard getting them up and ready for school today as they wanted to spend the day in our bed. So happy

Happy Little Princess

I bought this bed for my daughter at the same time I bought my daughters mattress, It's Brilliant and I can't fault it - neither can my Daughter. She now has a really simple solution to a massive 'problem'. This problem is having to tidy her room, in fact it's normally my problem to be completely honest.... LOL. Anyway now she has a massive storage compartment underneath her mattress which is so handy for her to just quickly throw everything in and pull her bed back down. There's only one thing I am worried about and that is when she decides she wants to change her room around and move her bed across the room or turn it around, which I never thought about at the time. It'll just have to stay where it is.... LOL

Luxurious bed

I bought this Ottoman bed recently and I am very happy with it. I looked at many different places and this was the best bed at the best price with the quickest delivery. It turned up on time and I paid extra for it to be put together. Money well spent as it was done very quickly and professionally and all of the packaging was taken away. It is very good quality and has plenty of storage space underneath - and easy to access. I highly recommend this bed for its elegant looks and excellent service from Dreams.

Great bed, great service.

Purchase a bed online. Picked a delivery date and paid extra for a build service. On the day of delivery the driver contacted us with a time slot and arrived on time. The bed was built quickly and efficiently- well worth the cost . Really please with the bed- it looks amazing and is sooooooo comfortable. We did not purchase a mattress, just a base with lift up storage. Would recommend and will definitely be using Dreams for any future bed purchases.

Sooooo comfortable

We got this to replace our tired old double bed, so needed a king size as we errm have grown up, the ottoman style is a great added storage, it will take 2 people to put it together though I did manage it on my own, felt like I did the krypton factor after though lol, the mattress took time to bed in so to speak but now it's a delight to sleep in, and as her in doors says, 'I look forward to going to bed'

Beautiful Bed

This bedframe is simply stunning, it's as good as it looks in the photos. The upholstery material is really thick, and the frame is totally sturdy. It has nice flat square-shaped feet in the corners. The ottoman function works perfectly as well. I'd recommend paying for Dreams to put the bed together due to the ottoman design, they take all the packaging away so you can just crack on with making the bed!

Comfortable Solid Bed

Bought this bed becuase previously bought cheaper beds of the internet, the last (a divan) broke after 3months. This bed not only looks fantastic but has a solid thick base unlike the thin cardboard you get on a divan. It also has great storage. It may be fairly expensive but it has the appearance of a bed that costs 2or 3 times as much and gives you the confidence that it will last a long time

Gorgeous bed

I am so happy that I bought this bed. I previously had a wooden framed bed but it did not have the storage underneath. I have managed to free up so much space in the room by packing away items and even have my ironing board under there. Now the room looks bigger and things are much more organised. It’s easy to access all my items as the bed lifts up easily even with the bedding and pillows on.

Looks lovely

We have redone our bedroom and needed a new bed. When we saw this one we both loved it. It looks lovely, a real centre piece. It was delivered at said time the men were very nice a polite and put it where we asked them to. We put it together ourselves it was quite complicated but the instructions were very clear and we didn't have any problems. We are very pleased with it.

Great features

I bought the bed few months ago, apart from the delay in the delivery-which dreams looked after us every thing is as expected. They fitted the bed within 15 minutes and cleared all the rubbish. It has lifted the room. This bed looks very posh and has good quality velvet. The best thing is the sturdiness of the frame and the space. I will strongly recommend this bed.

Looks lovely but not working

Lovely bed looks great. Was installed by Dreams on 24th October and was lifting ok when they left. Following day tried to open ottoman to put stuff away but pistons not working. Still waiting for technician to come and fix it. Won’t be here until next Friday. Far too long when brand new product is not working correctly. Would have been 5 stars if not for this.

Very pleased -excellent transaction

Very pleased -excellent transaction with Dreams. We chose an Ottoman Bed for my 19-yr old. We needed a good looking and strong frame and this bed offered that. One thing to specially mention was the excellent manner in which the team delivering the bed dealt with the delivery & assembly of the new bed; disposal of the old bed. Well done to the team

Lovely looking bed

I brought this bed last month after trying to look for a replacement bed for the one I had fallen in love with, only to be sold out when I went to order. Well, it worked out well in the end as this bed looks lovely. The crushed velvet headboard with wings looks stunning. I’m so glad I found this bed. The fitting staff as dreams are excellent too!

Lots of storage space

I bought this 3 weeks ago. I have managed to store duvets and pillows, also space for my summer clothes storage. I had an ottaman bed before but with the slatts and this seemed to limit the under storage space. I now have 1 with a full base and increases the storage height, even if you over fill it, it still squashes down, I love it ...

beautiful bed

a very beautiful bed with lots of storage, you cannot find something like this anywhere else it has a beautiful silver colour and looks outstanfing in real life im happy with the dreams online customer customer service and the delivery mens, also the Watford staff members were excellent thank you for the great service you are providing

Looks amazing, great storage.

We have had this bed for about a month now. It came well packaged, instructions were easy to follow. The bed once put together feels very very sturdy. The under bed storage is perfect and the mechanism is very easy to use and feels strong. The bed looks absolutely stunning and we are so glad we bought it. Definitely worth the money!

Love it !

I bought this bed a month ago and I’m so so happy with it, so easy to build, didn’t have to wait long for it to be delivered, delivery men were very nice and offered to carry it to my bedroom to save me struggling. I’ve had 3 ottoman beds and this is by far the best one yet, so solid and lifts so easily. I just love it !

Soooo happy

I've had this bed for a few weeks now so so happy with it cannot fault it. Was alot easier than I expected to put together considering it says two people and I did it by myself. Material is amazing and I've had so many compliments from family members so much so my aunty is now buying the same bed Haha

Love everything about it.

Looks even better in real life. Very well made and easy to assemble. Lots of storage space underneath which is on boards so will hold spare bedding etc. I added 4 plastic boxes from ikea to separate the area. The bedding stays in place when the bed is lifted due to the clever construction.

Great bed! Lovely quality, just like the photo

I bought this a few weeks ago and absolutely love it!! The storage feature is fab and you can get so much under the bed. It looks glamorous and expensive and fits perfectly with a standard double mattress. Took me and my flatmates a good few hours to make- so give yourself some time!!


I have now had this bed for a month. I cannot praise it enough. It is a substantial well made bed. It looks lovely and the ottoman feature means loads of storage. I have it easy to lift up. I highly recommend this bed. I paid to get it put together which I thought was well worth it.

Fantastic and so nicely designed

Brilliant bed. Very comfortable and have had so much good healthy sleep that we really feel better with our health. I would have given it 5 stars if it had arrived on time when it was supposed to, which led to an official complaint whereby Dreams compensated us financially for.

Absolutely stunning.Love it.So glam

Bought this a month ago it is stunning and so glam.It is a sturdy bed with loads of storage underneath.would recommend it.Only small complaint is I paid £50 to have it built up which I think is a bit pricey but no complaints about the excellent service or delivery

Looks great, not the best build quality.

I had this bed delivered 3 weeks ago. Once out of the packaging, the bed went together really well. The only issue, is the slight misalignment of the bed base due to the pre drilled holes being in the wrong place. If not for that I would have give. This 5 stars.

New bed

Saw this in a window at Dreams in Bromley and straight away wanted this Myself and my wife are currently just finished our new bedroom off and the bed compliments the room so nice Spacious , comfortable, well bed and storage below is plentiful 5 out of 5

Beautiful bed frame

I bought this bed after a complete disaster with another company. It was a blessing in disguise as the Dreams bed I have now is so much better. The quality of the finish is exceptional. It looks far more expensive than its price and the storage is excellent.


Brought the bed about 3 months ago now and so glad that we did! The style is perfect and the fabric is great quality. It is exactly what I expected. It wasn't the easiest to assemble but now it's up it's easy to use. Also great value for money!!!

It was relatively easy to build,

Brilliant for storing things out of sight. It feels solid once it’s built. I was abit disappointed with the length of time I had to wait for the product but was happy once I had taken delivery and had it built.

Great bed

I bought this a couple of weeks ago, and love it, not only can my bedding fit underneath but, my shoes and anything else I want to put under there. The bed is lovely and comfortable too, very glad I bought it.

Great build, nice looking and functionality

Great build quality bed looks great, the storage is very handy. Took me about 4 hours to put together so that was a bit of a pain, could of probably been quicker with two people but once built very pleased.

Amazing bed!

I bought this a little while ago and am so happy with it. Its very easy to lift and close compared to most other ottoman beds. The colour is beautiful and looks really nice with a simple white duvet cover.

Nice storage bed

Ok had this for around 3 to for weeks and does the job, Easy to lift up to access storage and seems quite sturdy, Not as strong as my last ottoman bed frame tho so was a little disappointed, easy to build

Cool Bed

Bought this bed a few weeks ago. Delivery team were really excellent - polite, friendly and extremely helpful. Self assembly was straightforward too. Bed looks great in my new bedroom. Highly recommend.
