Tests & Verdict

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 12+ years of industry insight.

The Westbrook Metal Bed Frame is a stunning piece of furniture that will bring a touch of modern, sleek style into your home.  Assembly looks to be relatively simple and shouldn't cause any concern for most.

  • Some customers found the assembly to be slightly challenging due to missing pre-drilled holes and issues with the screw fittings.
  • A few customers mentioned that the quality may not match the price, and in some instances, the bed frame suffered damage quite quickly.
  • Occasionally, customers complained about the bed sliding on non-carpeted floors without anti-slip covers on the feet, making it less stable.

I have been sleeping on this bed (single frame, sprung slats) paired with my own memory foam mattress for a two weeks now, and I am very pleased with it. It was relatively simple to assemble with one other person holding things in place as I tightened bolts etc, and everything appears to be well made and robust. The only problem I had was when it came to attaching the sprung slat module to the frame itself. The holes didn't line up with those on the frame! Fortunately a replacement was delivered the next day and that one was correctly drilled, so it all fitted together well. I'm impressed that there is no creaking, and even though the frame feels nice and sturdy (I'm not exactly feather light!), the frame itself is cleverly constructed so it is actually quite light and easy to move when vacuuming. Lovely matt black finish which is easy to dust, looks good and feels good. Very pleased, and at the price, it was an absolute bargain.

I originally ordered 2 double iron bed frames and 6 single, but the original delivery contained 1 double and 7 single. The delivery guys were absolutely amazing and the beds were superior quality. However, as I have 2 serviced apartments I needed a double bed. Delivery guys contacted the office and rearranged and took the unwanted single bed back with them. Next delivery scheduled and even brought forward for me to enable me to get my accommodation on the market. Unfortunately thus deliver was also a single bed!! Again delivery guys amazing and sorted with head office and took unwanted bed back. Next delivery was the correct double bed. So my review is -great products, awesome delivery guys, but head office organisation leaving a lot of room for improvement and it ended up costing me a lot of money through lack if revenue because I didnt have the correct extra bed to market my apartment.

Promptly delivered and sensibly packed. Everything present and so easily checked off. All parts clearly labelled and in individual bubble pack seperators on a backing card. Easy to transfer to suitable labelled containers ( I used egg cups ) and then easy to pick up the right bits very easily, once assembly begins. Assembly was quick and easy using the enclosed guide notes. I had an assistant but could easily have assembled the bed on my own taking a bit more time. A suitable box or crate of the right height to support the side bars at the right height whilst inserting the fixing screws and washers makes things even easier. Bed has a solid feel to it and looks like something that cost a lot more. I am delighted with my purchase and would definitely check out Dreams when I next buy a bed.

I am delighted with this frame - I have two of them now and would buy more. I prefer metal frames, having been let down by soft wood frames. If you can afford hard wood frames, go for it, but I would avoid pine etc. as they don't seem durable. This is very easy to assemble basically eight bolts which hold the four metal pieces nice and tight and flush, ensuring they wont loosen and begin to rock. Some beds only have four bolts, which wont provide the same stability. The sides are cast iron and nice and heavy. The headboard and footboard are probably aluminium nicely painted. Everything is well packaged. Pine slats are easily screwed in at each corner. This is great value and the delivery service was fantastic. You will need plenty of pillows/bolsters for sitting up in bed.

I bought this bed from Dreams after having a very bad experience with Bensons for Beds in which I waited for 9 months for a bed that never came. After that experience, I didnt want to spend too much on a bed. This bed was very reasonably priced and I find it to be great value. It took a 1.5 months to arrive. The delivery men were very quick, friendly, informative and took their shoes off and used masks. The bed was reasonably easy to put together. I put it together with my mum, neither of us are diy experts, within 1.5 hours. Despite this the bed feels secure and is stylish too. The central foot underneath did get knocked and moved when I put something under the bed, so just look out for that.

Excellent Metal Bed Frame. Nice clear instructions so putting it together was far easier than your usual flat-packed products. End result is much more solid and of higher quality than my previous bed, and I'm getting a much improved night's sleep as a result of this. One very minor negative I think there should be more bars downwards on the head end - as my head will fit though the gap between them. as I have dozed off while sat up reading in bed and my head has bumped against the wall. I chose to buy from Dreams because their Web site has the best photos - some of the other I visited wouldn't show the single bed picture - only double, even when you clicked the single option.

Bought this and have had it for a week, assembly is quite easy which is a plus although you may have a slight issue when trying to tighten screws but nothing to shout about, i purchased this when on sale for about 90 which is half the price advertised now so it was great value for money, i replaced my leather bed frame for this metal one as i wanted a more sturdy bed frame and this is sturdy and doesnt make any noises when you move around, the only thing i would recommend is getting solid slates as i assumed when purchasing it that it would come with metal slats but it came with wooden ones not that they werent good quality.

I bought this bed in the sale but opted for the sprung slats which costs a little more. I love my new bed and it goes well with my modern interior. The delivery service was great! However, I have one but, and I'm surprised it hasn't come up in the reviews yet. The gaps between the headboard and footboard are so wide, I can actually fit my head through without a problem and it leaves me wondering how this is compliant with UK furniture regulations. Because the gap is so large, it's uncomfortable to sit up against, luckily I have a massive feather scatter cushion. Other than that, great stylish bed, good quality and price

Positives: I love the overall simple and elegant timeless design the frame gives my room. Although my room is a double I am pleased that this frame is not cumbersome unlike some frames with end ends. The frame is sleek in design and neat but sturdy. Negatives: The base platform really needs to be between 3inches and 5 inches higher. Itis much lower than my previous platform base and it's difficult to ge out of bed. Also needs a couple of extra slats on the base. Having to buy a sheet of hardboard in prep for my new pocket sprung mattress which requires no gaps in which the springs to poke through!

Had to get rid of my double sleighbed due to moving to a smaller property with a much smaller bedroom. Ordered the single version of this and very pleased. Looks lovely in my bedroom. Delivery was as promised and the team took away my dismantled old bed and mattress and assembled my new bed. Very nice two man team polite and professional. Only problems I had was putting old double mattress in the green bag sent to me as it was for a super king size bed, so bit of a struggle. May consider getting new sofa bed for my living room at a later stage from Dreams as the service is excellent.

I bought this for my 5 year old son who had grown out of his cot bed, I wanted a bed that would take him all the way through teenage years - it is perfect for it. A grown up feel and sturdy. I havent put the centre support underneath only because I have slid a storage drawer in however without it still takes the weight of 2 adults and a child! Very easy to assembly was able to do it myself with a little help from the little one! A great bed (in the sales). Did take about 8 weeks to arrive but that was due to a stock replenishment. Overall very happy with the bed, I recommend it to all.

After my 11 year old's bed collapsed (having been used as a trampoline) I bought this based on the recommendations on the Dreams site. The bed is just as it says on the tin! Strong but good looking. Easy to assemble, but beware there are two sets of screws which are almost, but not quite, identical. Make sure you're using the right ones in the right place and then it's a doddle. The delivery guys were brilliant. Phoning me early in the morning and turning up at the promised time, and I was their last delivery of the day! Big thanks to Jordan and Daniel, friendly and helpful.

flojo21
Are the base slats fixed to the frame?

Answer: If you choose the solid slats the two end slats and the middle slat will be screwed into the frame, the slats are all joined together on a ribbon.If you choose the sprung slats, they are all connected into a frame, and the frame is then attached to the bed frame.For further details on this please see the assembly instructions included on the product page in the overview.Many thanks

What is the difference between solid and sprung slats?

Answer: Caityg94Sprung slats are stronger wood, have an extra strengthening bar in the middle and are upwardly curved. This means they're more durable. We recommend upgrading to sprung slats if this will be your main bed. Solid slats are the basic pine planks that hold your mattress up from the floor.Thank you for your question.

Does anyone know the maximum weight the bed can take

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

I am obese and weigh about 150kg. Will the bed be able to support my weight without warping? How about if me and another adult were to sit on it?

Answer: All of the bed bases are tested to BS EN 1725, then they are tested against a user of approximately 110kg on each side. (Domestic use only). Mattress weight and user weight should be distributed evenly.Many
