Customer Reviews For The Wilkes Wooden Storage Bed Frame

Based on 71 review

Quality Hard To Come By

The Wilkes Wooden Storage Bed Frame looks beautiful. The minimal design paired with the rustic appearance of the dark wood was exactly what I was looking for. Assembly was simple and I managed it singlehandedly. However, I am disappointed with the quality of the bed. I’m disappointed that real wood is such a rarity now a days. I was aware that the bed frame wasn’t solid wood when I bought it but once it arrived I realised how disappointed I really was. For the money I spent on the bed, I’d expect it to be made of real solid wood, not manufactured or engineered. Maybe I am underestimated the price of real solid wood. Aesthetically the bed frame does what it is supposed to do but it falls apart on closer inspection, looking and feeling.. fake.


Lovely solid bed

Its a lovely solid bed, I love the colour of the frame and headboard. And was easy to assemble. The baskets seem nice quality and are also a nice colour to match the frame colour. My only issue is that the inside storage compartments are not finished like the frame (they are shown to be finished with the wood effect in the display pictures above, but this is not the case) as shown in the image I uploaded. It's a shame really as this one little oversight does ruin its aesthetic as it is noticable when walking into the room. To me anyway. Even just doing the bottom of the strage compartment, as that's what you see from head height wpuld have been something. So it gets a four instead of a five from me as overall love the bed and sleeping in it.


simplistic design with easy build

We wanted to find something that had a relatively natural look to it and the style from photos gave us the impression it would be the one. Taking a look in-store, it ticked all the boxes for us, it's quite low level, and was incredibly easy to build coming essentially in 4 parts, the headboard, two sides and foot. The main this is it has helped us with the issues we were experiencing with our matress. Because both sides have a solid edge, there is less stress on the traditional slats that make up the centre of the bed. The cubbies are suitably spacious, and better still have encouraged us to give away some un-used items.


Excellent bed, solid frame, and great service

After 1 month we are very happy with the bed, it looks great, and is well made. The only tip I would give is that we bought extra storage boxes but they don’t fit well into 2 of the compartments, the front left and right, which are slightly smaller than the rest. So you might want to bear that in mind if you’re planning on using the boxes in every container. The delivery service was excellent, and the bed assembly, they wore PPE at all times due to Covid, and were friendly. Overall very happy and would have given five stars if it was for the slight flaw in design mentioned above.


beautiful bed!

Bought this bed recently and it was delivered fairly quickly, it arrived in 4 boxes. I did not pay for assemble and would recommend you either pay for it or enlist some help as the side rails are quite heavy. Overall, a beautiful bed! I love the contemporary design and feel to it, very sturdy fit for my heavy Simba mattress. The storage baskets are perfect and spacious with an option to buy more. Love it, love it!


Unique bed

This bed is unique compared to other wooden beds on the market. The bed provides good storage without compromising on style. The wicker baskets create a homely feel and make it easy to grab things like DVDs, chargers and books. Its great for the main bedroom or for a spare room to cater for guests by using the storage area to store towels. We think this is sure to compliment any home with a wow factor.


Great storage and solid bed.

We bought this bed after purchasing a bed from another well known,much more expensive store which turned out to be absolute rubbish and we sent it back and got a full refund. We then went and purchased this bed. We had to wait 6 weeks for delivery with it being a new design but I can honestly say that it was well worth the wait. It is absolutely solid,fabulous for storage and looks lovely.


Headboard is a let down

The bed itself is a beautiful design, the frame is nice and sturdy and the storage baskets are aesthetic as well as useful. The feature that lets this bed down is the headboard. Its so cheaply made and at odds with the rest of the bed. The slightest of taps to it produces a loud hollow sound which is depressing when you consider how much we paid for it.


Wilkes wooden storage bed

Great looking bed.sturdy outta frame but the design for the slats is shocking. The fixings that are provided aren’t adequate if the factory drilled holes aren’t perfect which in my case aren’t. The fixings fit through the holes providing no solid fixing for the slats. Other than this the rest went together easy enough and really well.


Solid construction and nice looking

We were a bit worried when reading the mixed reviews, particularly the reviews mentioning the difference in colour from the photos. Initial impressions are good, the headboard seems solid and has a nice grain to it even if it isn't real wood, and the storage under the bed in the baskets has decluttered our room massively


stylish and great storage

This bed frame creates a really contemporary and minimalist feel to your bedroom. It's unique design means you have a really useful storage solution without having to compromise on the look - in fact the storage baskets only add to the style of this bed. A sturdy, well made and unique bed frame I would highly recommend.


Great bed, colour not exactly like the photo

Very nice and functional bed frame. The only downside is that the colour is not exactly like in a photo and for the worse but considering that it is mostly covered by sheets and duvet it doesn't stick out. Having a more brown undertone would make it more appealing but that might be my personal taste.



This is the most beautiful bed frame I have seen. The storage is actually very generous. More so than it looks on the picture. It is very good quality and very well made. Delighted with my purchase. I paid for it to be put together for me but watched as they did it. Its very simple.


Love this bed

I love the bed! I have a really thick mattress and so wanted a sturdy bed frame that wasn't a fabric one and this is perfect. Loads of storage underneath and you can move the baskets around and arrange them how you want. Definitely a good purchase!


Beautiful Stylish

I purchased this beautiful stylish bed frame about a month ago along with a mattress l can honestly say l am getting the best sleep l could wish for the bed frame adds class and elegance to my bedroom on its own that is why I have given 5 stars.


great looking bed

bed looks amazing and is structurally sound. There was a quality issue with one section of the bed and the dreams customer service team quickly resolved this issue. There was a tiny colour difference in the end section all sorted now.


Amazing Storage and Comfort

It is the perfect feature for our small bedroom. The wooden look makes it feel warm and cosy but the storage adds the modern sleekness that really ties the room together! This is 100% a forever bed!


Storage Coupled with Style!
