What Makes It Great

It's a great bed base for what we paid. There is a +/-2.5cm tolerance on the length and unfortunately ours did come up 2cm short, (198cm, we purchased a King size that should be 200cm), so does mean that our mattress overhangs slightly, which is a little on the annoying side (we have an Emma memory foam mattress). The drawers feel a little flimsy, but do the job perfect and are a good size. Very simple structure and just two clips underneath holding the two parts together. Took the delivery guys literally minutes to assemble. Delivery was prompt, although be warned, if you are not available on the delivery day, and you get no option to change the date from what you originally booked, they will charge about £35 I think it was to rearrange. I didn't need to change my delivery date, but I still thought that was quite cheeky. Again it's not the most expensive divan base, so from that point of view we're happy with it.

Questions and Answers

What is the difference between the silent night divan base and the classic divan base please? What do I get for the extra money? On both, will the fabric of any drawers be the same as the rest of the base? Many thanks.

Answer: , The Silentnight divan base is upholstered in a more premium fabric than the Classic divan base. In addition the Silentnight base has glides which provide added stability in comparison to the castors on the Classic base. On both divan bases the drawers will be upholstered in the same fabric as the rest of the divan base. Kind Regards, Dreams

Does the silent night divan base come with headboard?

Answer: , The Silentnight divan base does not come with a headboard, this will need to be purchased separately. We have a range of headboards in their compatible Silentnight colours that you can shop here: Kind regards Dreams

Can a headboard be attached to this base?

Answer: , Yes this base will allow the attachment of a headboard. We have a wide range of headboards available to purchase online and in store. We would recommend purchasing one of our Silentnight headboards as the fabric type and colour palette will match this base. Kind Regards, Dreams

Being a little over weight, what is the maximum weight capacity for the base?

Answer: , We do not have a maximum weight limit for this base however we would not recommend anything over 30st. If you have concerns then we would advise you seek medical advise and look into getting a reinforced base. Kind Regards, Dreams

How do glides work in comparison to castors?

Answer: , A castor is a wheel and is a popular option on divan beds. The castor is a wheel which helps move the bed for cleaning or re arranging the bedroom. A glide is flat which other prefer as they do not move. Kind Regards, Dreams

Can I attach a footboard and do you sell them?

Answer: , Unfortunately we do not sell a range of footboards. However if you have a standard UK footboard then this should be fine to attached at the end as there are pre drilled holes. Kind Regards, Dreams

Hi what is the max user weight?

Answer: , Our bases are designed to take a variety of different mattress types and sleepers alike and therefore we do not specify a specific maximum user weight. Kind Regards Dreams

What is the space between the edge of the bed and the drawer opening.. (Bed will be close to a radiator and just checking drawer will open!)

Answer: , The drawer is 43cm in length and therefore to fully open the drawer you will need this distance between the Bed and the edge of the room. Kind Regards, Dreams

what is the height of base please, D in the dimensions which doesn' t have anything on the website?

Answer: Hi , The height of the base is 38cm/15in. The image in the dimensions section is incorrect and will be fixed. Apologies for the confusion. Thank you for your question.

Is this silent night divan base. In sandstone made in suede thanks Thelma.

Answer: , The standard Silentnight colours (Sandstone and Barley) are not suede however the enhanced colours (Marl Grey and Charcoal) are suede. Kind Regards, Dreams

can you get castors instead of glides on this base

Answer: , Unfortunately, this base is not available with Castors. I would recommend a Luxury Divan Base for a divan with Castors. Kind Regards, Dreams

How does the selection of a solid top divan as opposed to a sprung type affect the performance of the mattress ?

Answer: , There will be no change in the performance of a mattress however the mattress will feel softer with a sprung divan base. Kind Regards, Dreams

Is it possible for you to take the old bed base away?

Answer: , Yes, we offer a disposal and recycling service, which you can purchase at the checkout. Kind regards Dreams

How many headboard fixings on each side please

Answer: , This will come with 2 headboard bolts and 2 pre drilled holes to secure. Kind Regards, Dreams

will this divan take a waterbed mattress

Answer: , All of our Divan bases are compatible with any UK sized mattress. Kind Regards, Dreams

For a single storage divan could I have the drawers at the same side of the bed as it is to go against the wall?

Answer: , Yes, the single divan base will have both drawers on the same side. Kind Regards, Dreams

Hello, is this divan base in a Super king size still split east to west?  Thanks

Answer: , Yes, this divan in a super king will be split east to west. Kind Regards, Dreams

Can you tell me how many gliders in total are on a king size bed pleaae

Answer: , Our Silentnight Divan Base in king size will have 8 glides. Kind Regards, Dreams

Can any type of mattress be used on this base or do mattresses need to be sprung?

Answer: , Any type of mattress is suitable for use on this base. Kind Regards, Dreams

Is there a manufacturers guarantee? How long? Please.

Answer: , This divan base will come with a one year guarantee. Kind Regards, Dreams

For getting this (kingsize) upstairs I'm wondering how the size of each section compares to a singles divan..bigger or smaller? I know we can get a single up but only Just!

Answer: , Each half measures 100cm x 75cm with a height of 38cm. Kind Regards, Dreams

Fantastic Storage

I have had the divan base for just over 3 weeks. It is very sturdy and provides an excellent base for the mattress. The storage of two drawers and an ottoman really suits our needs. The drawers are great for storing smaller items while the ottoman part is huge and I have been able to store a quilt without having to force it in to the drwaer space which I had previously. Stamds on lovely shiny wideish feet. It more than exceeds my expectations.


So light and versitile

The Silent Night Divan Base has Provided my mattress with the correct support to enable me to have much more comfortable sleep. The two-part base is light in weight but nonetheless is sturdy enough to take a King size mattress. The metal feet (8 in all) allow me to move the whole bed easily for cleaning purposes. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase.


Great Divan but wrong design/deliver

The divan is great. Provides good comfort and it seems robust. However, unlike the picture of the product and on its specifications, both drawers are in opposite sides, therefore if your bed goes against the wall, you will have to sacrifise on drawer. I contacted e-dreams two weeks after the delivery explaining the problem, no answer.


Great and Sturdy !

I was a little worried about getting a Divan base due to them being so hollow, however, this base is amazingly solid, it does not make any noise while moving around, it chrome legs are quite the feature too ! it also comes in many colour choices which was very helpful when selecting the right shade we needed. Would 100% recommend.


Finishing could be better

Overall I am very pleased with this Divan Base. It is a shame that finished product checking is not better, my base was delivered with some protruding staples and poorly finished material. All has been sorted by Dreams and hopefully this attractive Divan Base will last for years.


New bed & mattress for the guest bedroom

We are renewing our bedroom furniture & bought new beds for the spare rooms. Beds arrived in September & we have had 2 different sets of friends come to stay & both commented that they slept really well & the mattress was really comfortable.


Looks Great - Poor Build Quality

Dissapointed with the quality of this bed. Cheap flimsy wooden frame and the drawers feel like they will break in no time. It looks good and the drawers have plenty of storage space but the overall quality is poor. Cheap and cheerful.


Very fragile

I bought this bed 2 days ago .. I didn't expect this quality of the wood .. the frame is stable but the side boards are made from cartoon may be !! The outer shape is very elegant but hiding bad quality material .. didn't break yet


Bed base 4 drawers

The base looks really nice with matching headboard. Small roller was broken in the draw but was soon sorted outand one was posted out within a week very good service will always use dreams when purchasing a new bed for our home


Good base

Good base for a bed, got it with solid feet instead of wheels so it does not slide around, has ample storage with 4 drawers, the drawers do feel a bit flimsy and will hopefully last a long time, overall happy with our purchase


no wheels

pity I did not realise that the divan base does not have wheels. the weight of the bed makes it now impossible to move! the quality of the base is not as good as previous bed as it is held together with plastic clips.


Great base

I bought this to update my daughters bedroom. The colour and material is great and fits in with our colour scheme and the feet make it easy to move about and the drawers are a great size for extra storage.


No clarity in the description led to disapointment

Good product overall. My focus was the storage. I ordered what i thought was 2 draws on the same side. In fact it is 2 small draws on each side.. therefore i am missing one and can’t access one..


Good quality

Good quality. Well made. Lovely colour. Two nice big draws and two nice small draws. Lots of storage space. Fitted a headboard with no problems. Very happy with my purchase.


Silent night Divan Base

It’s a base and dies exactly as the one tested in the showroom so really pleased Glad we opted for the4 drawer storage option really handy for all the apparel bedding


Very well finished divan base

So pleased with this purchase, the finishings are excellent and two larger drawers to the front and two smaller at the back so easy to access. Looks lovely in room.


Great Foundation

A good bed has a great foundation and this would be the reality here. An easy to put together base, to rest the matress on which then enables a great nights sleep.


4 Draw Divan

Happy with the product but considering the cost found the way the two halves fastened together rather poor. Easy to do but does not feel very permanent.

Great storage

Basic and Practical

We purchased this divan for our spare room it's very basic but practical. Easy enough to put together in minutes. Value for money.


Good basic bed

Purchased for the spare room and it is exactly what was expected. A good solid base with good quality drawers which glide smoothly.


Colour not what expected.

The colour (enhanced barley) is very different to the way it appears on the website. Swatches would be helpful.
