Pros & Cons

Here we collect tests, guides and product reviews so that you can create a picture of what others think about the product. This analysis and review is based on my experience and a decade of industry insight.

Good quality bed frame that has a number of colours to suit your room.

Different storage options depending on your own individual needs.

Fairly long lead time that may put customers off who need in a hurry.

No height options on this particular range and while colour and drawer options vary, the height is not an option for change sadly.

Why our sleep experts loved it

The Signature Divan Base from Dreams is a stylish and functional addition to any bedroom. It's upholstered in a luxurious suede-effect fabric with a velvety finish, which gives it a sophisticated and elegant look. The base is available in a choice of five colours, so you can easily pick one that will match your existing bedroom decor or start fresh with a new look while the sturdy chrome glides make it easy to move the base along hard or carpeted floors, and the platform top provides a firm and supportive base for your chosen mattress.

One of the standout features of the Signature Divan Base is the range of drawer options that are available. The 2-drawer option allows you to choose whether the drawers are positioned on the left or right side of the bed, depending on which end the headboard is fixed to. The 4-drawer option has drawers on either side of the bed, and the 2 + 2 option has two regular-sized drawers at one end and two continental drawers at the other, which is great for those who have bedside cabinets but still need access to drawers.

Overall, customers have been very happy with their purchase of the Signature Divan Base. Many have noted the high quality and beautiful design of the base, and have praised the abundance of storage it provides. Some have also commented on the good value for money that the base offers. However, one customer did have a negative experience with the customer service they received, reporting that only their mattress was removed when they were promised both their old mattress and base would be taken away. Despite this one issue, the vast majority of reviews have been positive, with customers rating the base highly for its quality, value, and design. The base is made in the UK and comes with a one-year guarantee, giving you additional peace of mind.

Picked this classic divan as just need a standard divan bed base without having to spend a lot of money. Very good value and offers a fair range of colours with either 2 or 4 drawers options. Picked a navy blue one and a beige one for two separate bedrooms. Both turn out looking great and look more expensive than they are, especially once the headboards were installed. Paid to have the beds assembled so didn't actually know how hard to put the beds together. The drawers look slightly weak too as the bed is actually hollow inside but I guess it should be fine as long as I am gentle with them. Overall very happy about the purchase!

We received our divan bed and we are so impressed! The silver colour is beautiful and we already have a headboard on order to match! We were amazed by how spacious the 4 drawers were, perfect for that extra storage that is easy to get to when needed. We went with the Harris double mattress and both had the best sleep weve had in ages! I just cant wait for our headboard to arrive now!

This divan is really good value. It was initially delivered in the incorrect colour but the delivery boys and customer services sorted the error very quickly and were incredibly friendly. The biscuit base is slightly darker than the picture online. Matress is lovely and firm. Very happy with our purchase and would recommend

Four draw divan bought at the same time as mattress. Easy to put together. I did it on my own but would have been easier with two people. Draws not as sturdy as my old divan and not as much room but adequate for moderate storage. Nice and lightweight easy to manoeuvre wheels work. Overall happy with purchase price paid.

We bought this bed for a friend coming to stay with us for Christmas and New Year. She has just left for home today and her opinion was that the bed was super comfortable and she slept like a log. My husband is over the moon with the actual manufacture of the bed so all in all we are very happy with our new purchase.

Comes with spacious drawers that use the whole base, chamfered corners that our legs won't bump into, wonderful coarse fabric covering, no protruding portions which reduce the free space in the room. Also stable and well-built. Very practical, elegant and modern-looking. Highly recommended.

Received today. The overall build quality is as expected for the price so not amazing and feels quite cheap. However the frame does look feel solid enough for most. One of the drawers however came damaged which is a huge shame. The bed shouldn't be moved too often as it may break entirely.

Bought a single divan and mattress, had an issue with the mattress so I rang customer service up and they arranged for a replacement mattress to be sent out to me. No quibble no argument they were very professional. I would recommend Dreams to anyone buying beds and mattresses.

The divan bed base was ease to put together, but only giving it 4 stars as you only have two plastic clips underneath holding the bed base together, instead of hook clips on the side which would have been much better and more secure

Solid Base, good quality for a reasonable price. Only negative would be that the clip that joins the bases looks a little unsightly. Could have been a darker colour - the silver clip stands out against our brown base

Questions and Answers About The Dreams Workshop Divan Bed Base

Prospective customers had the following questions about the product

Image of the post author
Ronn
Hi Is there anyone out there from Dreams who can answer my question? Is a 2 drawer bed more expensive than a 2 drawer? Can I have a sample of material? Perhaps an answer from the company rather than a customer is appropriate? Taonn

Answer: Sorry about the length of time it has taken to answer this particular question.The 4 drawer is more expensive than the 2 drawer and can be selected from the drop down menu, once you have chosen the size you would like to purchase.Unfortunately we are currently unable to provide sample fabrics for the products at this time, however you can see a selection of divan bases at your nearest Dreams store.The size of the drawers are 70cm in length with a width of 44cm and a depth of 12cm, it's note worthy that the drawers hold up to 15kg in weight.I hope this helps and sorry again.

The single divan photo shows two drawers on one side but the text and illustration suggests that you get one on either side (top or bottom). Which is correct?

Answer: .Two Drawers on one side, the images online are correct. The text on product advises this:Drawer optionsFor the 2-drawer divan option, the drawers can be positioned either at the head-end or foot-end as the headboard can be fixed at either end of the base, aside from the small single and single which will have both drawers on one side.In the 4-drawer divan option, the drawers appear either side.Many thanks

Can I put the headboard on with this divan base

Answer: Yes, a headboard can be attached to this divan base. We have a range of headboards available online and in store that would be suitable for use with this base. The following headboards are available in the same range of colours and fabrics as this divan base. The Newark, Columbia, Fairfield, Stamford and Alabama. These can be found by searching the names in the search bar online.

Deb99
Is it possible to have drawers at each side but at the bottom end?

Answer: If this divan base is purchased as the two drawer option, both drawers will be on the same side - there is unfortunately no option to have two drawers at the base of the bed, unless the four drawer option is purchased.Our TheraPur divan base has the option to have two drawers on each side at the bottom of the bed. This can be found online by searching TheraPur Divan Base.

Graham1980
As the plywood base is only 2.5mm thick, does this mean the underside of the base is supported by wooden slats? And if so, how far apart from each other are the slats on a super king size?

Answer: The base is not slatted but is fully supportive. A Super king divan base is made up of two single size bases and will securely hold any of the mattresses. A common issue with damage to Divans is when being moved without the mattress on, if a person was to stand on the base without a mattress the concentration of pressure in that one point will most likely cause the plywood to break. I hope this information helps.

Okkaren
If I buy two single divans can they be joined together to make one large bed with one headboard? Thereby having two separate mattresses of different firmness.?

Answer: If you purchase a Super King size divan this can split into 2x Single divans. We also offer a range of Zip and Link Mattresses with split tensions so you can create the perfect bed for you.If you need more assistants please visit one of the Dreams stores or give the Telesales a call and they will be happy to help.

What is the weight restrictions

Answer: Thank you for your enquiry. At Dreams we do not have a weight restriction on the Divan bases. They are designed to be supportive and will take any of the heaviest mattresses and happy sleepers included. the Ottoman option bases are the strongest of the range so if their is a concern, then this may be the most suitable choice.

Can you take the wheels off?

Answer: This base can be assembled without the addition of the single wheeled castors, however we would not recommend this. The base has been constructed specifically to accommodate the castors and we would recommend that it is assembled in the correct way in order to maximise the life of the product.

Jasper_iepema
Could the super king size be used as two single beds when needed? And is it possible to fit this bed with two normal single headrests, so you can split and merge the beds?

Answer: If you purchase a Superking Size base then this can be used as two Euro Single bases when separated. Please note that there is a 10cm difference between a standard single and a euro single.Each divan is pre drilled with headboard holes so is compatible with UK headboards. Kind Regards. Dreams.

How suitable is this bed on a wooden floor as it has wheels?

Answer: The bed is suitable on a wooden floor, however this would depend on your personal preference in regards to the ease of movement. If you did want a divan with wheels, but wanted to reduce movement then you could purchase castors cups. However we do not sell these.Kind regardsJessica

I have purchased a classic divan king size. The linking bar and screws have been provided but the assembly instructions imply the linking bars should already be attached. Do I need to drill these bars into the base myself?

Answer: I apologise for any confusion. The holes for the linking bars are underneath the fabric. You need to feel underneath the fabric for the hole and pierce the fabric with the bolt. Should you require further assistance please call the customer service team.

EllieJ10
Hi, with the basic classic divan base (double): 1) what does assembly entail for this bed - just attaching the castors or are they already attached on delivery, as the base must already be built? 2) what is the "other" option vs the sliding doors option?

Answer: The double comes delivered in two halves which just need to be joined together using the linking bars provided. The castors will also just need to be fitted onto the bottom of the base. The other option is for the base with one sliding drawer. Many thanks for the question.

What's slides as apposed to drawers

Answer: Slides are sliding drawers. This is where the door of the storage area slides across to reveal the storage space inside rather than pulling out as a drawer. Slides are a great storage option if you do not have space in your room for pull the drawers.

Lilian
Hello, Is it possible to have a slide storage option along the right hand side of the bed? If so, how much would it cost? Thank you

Answer: Yes this is possible. The price would depend on what size base you would like. Please select your size from the drop down and in the drop down below select '2 Slide (opposing sides)' and the price will adjust accordingly.Many thanks for your question and I hope this helps.

Loudb81
Can a head board be attached to this divan ? Thanks

Answer: Yes we have a large range of headboards that will be suitable to attach to this divan base - we would recommend looking at the range of Dreams Classic Headboards as these will be the same fabric type and colour palette as the Classic Divan Bases.

Hi, what's the maximum weight the single bed can carry?

Answer: Lucyyyy,Our beds do not have set weight limits, apart from the adjustable range that has a limit of 18 stone. The pistons in these products have been designed to cope with heavy weights so please be assured of the sturdiness. We hope this helps you.Thank you for your question.

Im looking to purchase the standard double divan bed with slider storage. Would it have storage on both sides or just one side?

Answer: When purchasing this base, you have the option to purchase with one storage slide or two. If one slide is chosen, then there will only be storage on one side of the base if two is purchased then there will be storage on both sides of the base.

What exactly is the difference between the "slide" drawer and the other option? Your website, pictures and other responses to this question don't make it very clear.

Answer: Slide drawers have a sliding cover over the drawers that moves to the side to allow the under bed storage space to be revealed. The standard drawer option are normal drawers which are pulled out where good are stored in the drawers.

Are there castors under the drawers? I'm in a wheelchair and need to take the castors off the bed so it doesn't roll away from me if I need to use it as leverage to get off the floor.

Answer: No the drawers are not on castors but the base is. However, when the delivery team comes to assemble the bed, just let them know you would like the base without the castors on and they will not put them on.I hope this helps and thank you for your question.

Hi do the divan beds have weight limits for maximum amount of weight?

Answer: Thank you for reaching out with your question. Unfortunately we currently dont specify a weight limit to the divans, however all divans are tested to the British Standard EN1725 structural test for strength and stability..

ClareGy123
The draws on the beige bed dont show as being covered in material yet the other coloured beds do. Is this correct? Thanks

Answer: Good Evening,If you select the sliding drawer option then these will not be covered in the same fabric as the base. However if you select the standard drawer option, these will be covered in the same fabric as the rest of the base.

Q and A says no max user weight . But could you confirm if this would be suitable for someone 120kg?

Answer: We do not a have a maximum weight limit on the divan bases however we would not recommend anything over 30st. If you have concerns it may be worth getting some medical advise or looking into a reinforced base.

Is the '1 slide' storage option at the bottom of the bed or on the side?

Answer: The 1 slide storage option is positioned at the side of the divan base and not on the end. An image of this can be viewed on the website when the 1 slide storage option is selected from the drop down storage options.

can you fit a headboard to the base??

Answer: Yes this base is compatible with a wide range of headboards. We would suggest looking at the range of Dreams Classic Headboards as these will be the same fabric and palette of colours as this Classic Divan Base.

How many legs would a double divan come with if it had 2 drawers. I have read that in some reviewed there is not enough support in the middle. Can we request 6 legs?

Answer: The classic diva base is not available to purchase with legs, this base is only available with single wheeled castors. If you require a divan base with legs, we would recommend looking at the luxury divan base.

Helen94
What is the weight limit on this base?

Answer: All beds are tested to British Standard where 120kg weights are used on the beds stress points. There isn't a weight limit set for people using the bed as such, as when laying on the bed weight is distributed more evenly.Thanks

Does the set of wheels mean that the bed will slide around or move slightly when sleeping on?

Answer: This divan base should not move around, however this may depend on the surface of your floor. If you find it is moving around more than necessary, you can purchase castor cups to prevent any movement.

Do you deliver to Northern Ireland

Does the 2 draw option mean that they will be on the same side?

Answer: Yes the draws will be on the same half of the divan. If you have a headboard that you wish to attach, this can be screwed in at either end meaning you can have the draws either side of the bed.

Does the small double divan come in 2 bits? (Like the king size) If so, how big would the drawers be?

Answer: The small double does indeed come in two sections. The drawer dimensions are also as follows: Drawer dimensions: Standard drawer: 70 (W) x 45 (L) x 11 (D) cm; Sliding drawer: 36 (D) cm. Hope this helps, Dreams.

If I order a single divan (2 draws) will it come in to halves? We have some stair issues so need one that we put together once in the room.

Answer: Our single divans come as a whole. If you have tight spaces or corners it could be worth looking at the bedframe range. These come in boxes and can be easier to move around tight corners.

It says that the divan comes in two parts, for ease of manoeuvrability but does this apply to all sizes, including the single divan? I don't think even a single divan will go up our stairs unless it is in two parts!
