To start, one of the main things you'll notice about this bed base is its great choice of colours. Whether you prefer a classic neutral or a bold statement, there's a colour option that will suit your style, with the option of a hardwearing woven fabric that is durable and easy to clean, or an upgraded softer, tweed-like weave for an even more luxurious feel.
Another great feature of the Ottoman Bed Base is its storage options whereby the ottoman variations and drawer options available make it a great choice for anyone looking to maximise their storage space. What's more, the drawer option variants have an impressive storage depth of 22cm meaning you'll be able to store a lot of items and keep your bedroom looking tidy and clutter-free. but what do customers thing about this product? Lets take a closer look and find out.

Customer Reviews For The Silentnight Ottoman Divan Base

Based on 50 reviews
My new Dreams Ottoman

I have the Ottoman (Double) plus two drawer set. Easy to set up ( I am over 60 and did the set-up alone). Feet click on easily, and the drawers and bed opening mechanism smooth. My concern was the opening and lifting mechanism - but I am 100% confident it will never be a problem and it is finally lovely to have clean, neat and tidy, easily accessible storage. Hurrah, thank you Dreams.

Great mix of functions

I bought this bed a while ago and had to wait a while extra due to COVID, to get it. The wait was worth it. I love the mix of types in this bed. Good storage with both drawers and ottomon and fitted up our very tight stairwell to our converted attic master bedroom looks really good and I finally have a master room that Im proud of!

Yes Bed and topper!

Worth every penny, thought I had back issues before investing in this bed. Im 65 and theres plenty of room for my 4 month pregnant wife and 18 month old daughter. Olympic topper was well worth the little extra, excellent addition and it really does make a difference Amon an already excellent setup.

Delighted with our secret storage!

The ottoman base was just what we needed. We have a small flat and space is very limited. The hidden storage area doesnt detract from the clean look of the bed and is surprisingly easy to access. We are delighted.

A bed with style, comfort and good value for money

This is an amazing bed . The storage is easily accessed with the spring loaded mechanism. Lots of room under the bed to store all your extra linen. Quality you expect from Silent Night at an affordable price.

Great bed

After a long wait, arrived and delivered no problem, however mattress was marked as packaging was ripped, so after a phone call, i was offered a replacement or money off, so issue resolved.

Silentnight Ottoman Base

Fantastic bed base. Was torn for quite a while whether to have a drawer divan or ottoman base. This is the best of both. Great storage space. Would definitely recommend.

Silent night Ottoman Base Double review

Very solid Divan, with a great amount of storage from the 2 drawers and ottoman. Very impressed. Delivery was efficient and no fuss. Note that headboard is sold separately

Ottoman with style

Brilliant concept - half ottoman with small drawers at the top end so you can open them past your bedside table. Beautifully made and very stylish. Absolutely love it.

5 Stars

Silentnight Ottoman Base

Perfect bed base. Works perfectly with our Tempur mattress. Solid and smooth mechanism for opening and closing the ottoman. Plenty of room in the ottoman too.

Review of Ottoman Bed

The storage with this bed is fantastic. I thought I might not be able to open and close the ottoman as I have weak arms but I haven't had any problems so far.

Fantastic bed

Under bed storage is a useful feature when purchasing beds but this is so much easier than pulling drawers out and crawling around on your knees! Top product

Excellent storage room!!

Strong very strong with alot of storage room.base is very strong not at all flimsy.fits with any colour scheme.really happy with my purchase for my new home


Great bed base, the storage is great and so easy to access. I used to store all my bedding and freed up a large drawer. My bedroom is now so tidy Thanks

Great bed frame

Bought my bed and after waiting a long time for delivery was delighted. Although the ottoman is hard to open with our mattress on it holds lots of bedding


Drawers are a bit flimsy. A more solid base for them would have been nicer. The ottoman part doesn't lift up very high so a big of a struggle to organise

some construction needed

good construction although the runs on the draws were not screwed on so feel off during shipping so had to modify myself at home to get back on.

Very stylish, great storage

Very practical when it comes to needing extra space for storage looks really nice in the bedroom very comfortable some of my best nights sleep

Bed Bed base yet

Our best bed base yet. The additional benefit of storage is perfect. Now our bedsheets and extra towels have a safe home for easy access.


A good, solid base, apparently well made which looks good in situ. Plenty of space in the base which we had no trouble filling :-)

Good sturdy base

Really good base, just was a bit too big to get up our stairs unfortunately :( storage with the drawers a really good idea

Our new bed from Dreams

We needed a new bed, and I didn't wont stuff put under it anymore, so a bed with storage was the answer, thank you Dreams.

Questions and Answers About The Silentnight Ottoman Divan Base

Prospective customers had the following questions about the product

Does the bed require self assembly for ottoman

Answer: This bed will need assembling. If you selected assembly at the point of sale this will be completed for you on delivery. If you didn't purchase the assembly service you can still add this on, please call the customer service team and they can provide you with more details. Alternatively the Divans are all simple to assemble yourself, they can take up to 25 minuets to complete and take minimal effort. .

The headboard I have at present is in perfect condition but would it fit this base?

Answer: This base has been designed to work with a variety of different headboard fixings, however without understanding exactly what type of headboard you have, it would be difficult to confirm whether this would be compatible. We would recommend that you visit the store nearest to you with this base on display in order to check whether your current headboard would be compatible.

Drawer dimensions continental for half ottoman two drawers. The answer is incomplete. What is the depth of the drawer? How much space is there between the head end of drawers and the top end of the bed? I want to place an order and cannot without this.

Answer: Good morning The drawer depth is 14cm. The gap size from the drawer to the head of the bed will vary depending on what draw option you select. To get this specific information I would advise that you visit a local show rooms so the can talk you through all the different options.

Does this base split in 2 like a standard divan base for transport? If so is there a weight limit on this bed base please.

Answer: Good Evening,This divan base will come in two halves which will help with transportation. the bases are designed to accommodate a variety of different types of mattresses and sleepers alike and therefore we do not specify a weight limit.

What are the dimensions of the storage space for the ottoman base only?

Answer: The depth of this ottoman is 22cm; however, the width and length of the storage base will vary depending on which size ottoman you require. Please advise which size you need and we can provide dimensions for you.

I love the half length ottoman, but I was wondering if there are specific mattresses that are designed specifically to bend in the middle to allow it to open? Would it be compatible with any mattress, or could it cause damage to them? Thank you.

Answer: Any of the mattresses are suitable for this half ottoman base, the ottoman doesn't lift high enough to damage the mattress. Also the mattress tends to stay almost straight when it is lifted.

What is the structure of the bed made of? is that solid wood or "manufactured wood" covered in veneer? The suface which the matress goes on, is that hard or sprung/squashy? Also, does the height include the little glide legs?

Answer: The structure of the bed is made from FSC certified timber. The top of the base is a platform top so i is hard.The height does take the glides into account.

Does it come with an option for headboard or if not, is it possible to attach a headboard?

Answer: Thank you for your enquiry. The Silentnight Divan is compatible with any of the headboards. We also have a range of Silentnight headboards with fabrics that will match the base.

Hi, I'd like to use this base with a vintage strutted headboard. The distance between the centre of each strut is 107cms. What is the distance between the headboard fixings on this base? Also, do you sell the headboard bolts separately? Thanks,

Answer: Our standard size for this distance between the struts on double is 101cm and on a king is 116cm. Unfortunately we do not sell these separately. Hope this helps, Dreams

For the ottoman only option is the storage only half the bed or is it the full size of the frame? Thanks

Answer: An ottoman only option would only be half the base. If you are after a full size ottoman, all of the other brand ottoman bases have this feature.

what are the draw dimensions (Height, width, depth) for the standard version

Answer: 70cm L x 43cm D x 12cm H. This information is on the product page so if looking for this information on other products it is easily accessable.

Is the base solid or Ventilated?

Answer: This base has a solid top - there are no gaps other than at the foot end where there is a small space to be able to pull the ottoman up.

For the ottoman option do both halves open please?

Answer: This base is a half ottoman. This will open on just one side, but extra storage is available in the form of drawers for the other end.

The headline information says it has glides but the more detailed information in overview says sturdy chromed wheels. I would prefer wheels but are they standard or an option or not available.

Answer: This ottoman base had glides, not chromed wheels. We apologise for the confusion and will rectify the product description.

What is the height of this bed without a mattress? as it says 34cm but the image says that measurement A is with a mattress?

Answer: Thank you or your enquiry. I can confirm the height of the ottoman base alone is 34cm, we will get the image updated to show dimension D as 34cm.

I have this base and need to order new feet and a new linkage to keep the base together - can you source this for me?

Answer: Please reach out to the customer service team as they will be best placed to help you do this. .

Hi, does this come with a guarantee? Also how many gas lifts does the ottoman use - just 2 or is it 4? Thanks

Answer: This item comes with a 1 year guarantee. There are 2 lifts used as part of the ottoman mechanism.

What is the height when the ottoman is fully open?

Answer: The height of the ottoman when it is open is 129cm. Many thanks, Dreams

How large is the gap from the floor to the bottom of the bed when the feet are attached?

Answer: The gap is 2 inches as this is the length of the feet.

The ottoman only option - is this just one half that opens or both halves of the divan frame?

Answer: Good Evening Both halves of this ottoman open as one.

How many headboard fixing holes are there at each end of the base?

Answer: There are 2 at each side of the base.

I was just wondering about the Ottoman only option. Is it still just a half ottoman at the base of the bed, or is it the full size of the bed as I can't see info on that in the description and would like it larger?

Answer: This is a half base ottoman.
