What Makes The Silentnight Divan Base 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.

Customer Reviews For The Silentnight Divan Base

Based on 127 review

New bed base

Bought this silentnight bed base to replace old one and it does the job-looks clean and fresh and the colour compliments my bedroom. Was a bit confusing on how to attach the divan base together but rang help line and managed to work it out- not sure how sturdy the clip will be- it’s plastic and my last base joined with a metal latch and you also had to attach it underneath bed base not at the side which was fiddly but we have had it a month and so far so good! . The delivery service was brilliant-lots of communication about when they were coming and the 2 men were really polite and helpful-thank you!


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.


Ideal bed for modern professional family

I bought this about a month ago as we needed a big bed with features that would include optimum storage space, firm base and sleek design. This divan fulfilled all these criteria. Our bedroom looks much bigger and no more swapping boxes for storage. We were still a bit sceptic about the sturdiness of the base but we are convinced that this was the ultimate bed we wanted. Fantastic product!


Love the feet

I purchased my divan base because my old one was cheap and nasty, so I took my time and did my homework on which product to buy and read all the reviews I could find and I'm absolutely delighted with this product it lives up to all my expectations and because it looks so good I don't have to worry about using a valance to cover it up and don't get me started on the feet they are gorgeous.



After my original one got damaged in the warehouse, I had to wait another 10 days for a replacement to be rushed through. the base is good and solid, and easily manouverable with the added glides. the only draw back is that the drawers hold less then it's predecessor, so I cannot hide my junk.. it does take a spare inflatable mattress, all the bedding and vacuum packed pillows though.


Comfortable mattress

We changed our bed having only had our previous one for 3 years as it was so uncomfortable. This bed was half the cost of our old one & is so much more comfortable. The mattress is so nice & comfy & of great quality. My only disappointment is the quality of the base. It appears quite flimsy & the way it clips together isn't the best mechanism. Overall, great bed!


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.


Excellent Service

I brought this just under a month ago, can't fault them at all. Confirmed my day for delivery two days in advance and then got a call from the driver on the day to confirm a time, and a call when he was outside! Was put in the room we wanted nice and easily with no fuss. Couldn't of asked for more and it gives us the storage we needed!


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.


great nights sleep

We bought this bed and mattress a few weeks ago and had a wonderful nights sleep ever since and the pricing was also very good so we would recommend this bed and mattress to any one looking for a good nights sleep as soon as you get between the sheets!! Excellent11


Amazing looking base

Bought the base over a month ago & was suprised on how beautiful it looked when it arrived. The base consists of 2 draws and a half ottoman storgae. Needless to say...theres plenty of storage. Its a sturdy great looking base. Definitely recommend it.


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.


Divan Bed

Easy to assemble. Took 10 minutes or less. It’s added a much better and more secure feel to my mattress. Sleep has improved. I do however still feel that Divan’s are heavily over priced considering there just 2 blocks and no headboard!


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


Great bed

Bought a bed frame from dreams which was delivered on time, looks perfect in our spare bedroom. The delivery drivers had excellent customer service skills and were so friendly which makes a huge difference. Thank you dreams


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.


easier to move across the carpet with the glides.

Brought this bed as replacement for slightly larger size as i needed the extra room.Very nice choice and very comfortable.I wish i had changed it sooner,now have the extra room i needed and get a better nights sleep.


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.


Divan with extras

Bought this divan base for our upgraded bedroom, really love the small draws which allow the bedside table to fit at the head end of the bed and the bigger draws at the bottom end for storing the bedding.


Comfortable bed and good storage

I bought a superking tempur mattress and silentnight divan base recently. The mattress is very comfortable and the divan base is perfect. The 4 drawers are great for storage and looks fab in my bedroom.


Great Bed

Very impressed with our new bed. We had lots of problems with the slats falling through the old bed so decided to go for one that did not have slats. The draws are spacious. Would recommend to anyone.


Perfect storage bed!

Brought this bed a month ago and it’s perfect! I did think I had ordered it with the drawers but I hadn’t selected them but there is plenty of storage just in the ottoman part. Very easy assembly!


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..


Easy to assemble

This is robust yet reasonably easy to move around and assemble. One of the drawers didn't work as the runner assembly was loose. A quick thump in the right spot a nd the runner was back on .


Just as described. Lovely product

Bought this when we moved into our new house as wanted a king size but didn’t have room for a bed with headboard etc and it’s perfect. Nice and tidy in the room and is so easy to assemble.


Perfect Fit

Was easy to put together, perfect storage space for all my bed linens and perfect match for my chocolate box bedroom..... perfect height for the family Choweenie to jump on and off too


great idea!

I bought this base with continental drawers and normal drawers great idea i dont have to move my bedside cabinet to use the drawers, base in great condition deliverymen very helpful


Stylish and simple divan

Had this divan bed a couple of weeks now and I couldn’t be happier with it. The chrome feet are really nice touch, stylish and simple to fit and for the price you can’t complain.


Glad we bought!

We bought this mattress and divan base about 3 weeks ago and are delighted with our purchase. The mattress is comfortable yet firm. Perfect for us. Have slept very well since!


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.


Solid and comfortable

Perfect for our needs, great height and storage unit easy to access. Looks are extremely nice and matches our decor. Solid construction, easy to assemble. Highly recommended



Bought this for our bedroom looks great, very sturdy and very good quality too. Great price. Delivery very polite and on time. Contacted every step. Well done dreams.


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.


Great, comfortable and moneys worth

I bought a king size bed with the bed base, it was affordable and is very comfortable. Not to mention the delivery men who were extremely helpful and friendly


Fantastic bed

First new bed in a while and it was a great experience from visiting the shop right through to delivery and of course to a better nights sleep. Thank you.


Great quality and storage!

Wonderful divan base with 1/2 ottoman storage and continental drawers. Very pleased with my purchase and the all of the extra storage space I now have.


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.


Lovely bed

Love the storage and use of space under the bed. It does not creak at all which is great. very sturdy and beautiful fabric and easy to assemble


Great so far

Great look, feels robust and quality is good. Love that it splits left to right rather than down the middle, think they last longer that way.



As a disabled man I paid for the install and removal option and the guys were great. The base is quality, sturdy with ample drawer space


Great storage

We bought the bed for the storage and its fantastic! I can fit so much in! We also love the grey fabric - modern and goes with anything!


Perfect product

The item was purchased to replace an old divan and was perfect, very firm and well built. Delivery and overall service was exceptional.


Attractive Quality Divan Base

Not used yet but is good looking cloth material and colour (grey) with 2 large drawers. Note: this base has a solid top (not sprung).


Better Than Advertised

Bought about two months ago. I requested a delayed delivery which the company accommodated. A good nights sleep fro the beginning.

Very good quality and price

We have had this bed for just over a month now and it's great, we are sleeping so much better and it suits us just perfect

Questions and Answers About Silentnight Divan Base

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

For the 2+2 silent-night divan base, the image that comes with this option is the bed with 2 smaller drawers and one- ottoman storage lift system at the end of the bed. Can you confirm if the base is just the 4 drawers or the 2 and ottoman storage at end.
