All of our bed frames are made to be slightly smaller than the mattress that sits on them, allowing the mattress to sit over the edge approximately 2 cm (3/4 of an inch) all of the way around the bed. This allows the bed to take up a minimal 'footprint' in your bedroom whilst moving the corners and legs of the bed away from being in the path your feet and knees as you walk past and get in and out of bed daily.

Underbed Storage

All of our "Traditional" beds apart from their low legs version, have the clearance height underneath the frame so that they can accommodate our supersized storage boxes. Designed specifically for our beds to offer the perfect place to hideaway clothes, extra bed linen, shoes, bags and toys. They are available in any of our  beautiful wood enhancing finishes and white paint, which are completely water based and safe for our environment, animals and children.

The stain or paint covers the external faces of these sturdy boxes which are designed to slide smoothly across a carpeted bed room floor. For wooden floors, just add sticky felt protectors (as with all other furniture), to protect the floor.

Our Under-bed storage boxes are meticulously crafted in our environmentally friendly London workshop (in which 98% of our waist is recycled), using traditional skills and techniques applied by the expert hands of our carpenters.

  • Height:28cm or 20cm (when placing an order for a frame, the right storage drawer height options will be offered as a final selection in the ordering process)

The drawers are supplied flat pack with an amazing bolt together simple, strong design. Assembled for free upon delivery by our installation delivery crew.

What Our Customers Say

Enid Talmon

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at Warren Evans for our new bed. The whole process beginning with the video calls with Dia and Gul, the ordering and confirmation phone call, through to the punctual and careful delivery and assembly this morning was easy, helpful and professional. I was sceptical about choosing and buying a bed online but I needn't have worried. The Warren Evans team made it pain free. The bed and mattress are extremely well made and look great. Thanks again.

Amy Kemp

All my friends who stay at mine talk about my beautiful bed... it is the most exquisitely made floating platform. This is the third bed frame I have bought from Warren Evans, the two before are both in perfect condition and just as beautiful and sturdy as they were when they guys put them together for me in situ in my house. I have no more bedrooms to furnish sadly, but if I did, I would 100% buy one from Warren Evans, they are outstanding and I would recommend them to everyone.

E Paul

Great products! This is the 4th purchase as the quality is so great my entire family are now wanting the beds. Customer service has been particularly good on this occasion, as I've needed to arrange a courier and I've been helped through every step of this. The team have followed emails up with a call to make sure everything is as it should be and given me really helpful advice.

Swaraj

Buying my bed from WE was absolutely hassle free. The staff made the process as easy as possible – answering all my questions, helping with the order/payment and undoubtedly the best team to deliver and assemble the bed on site. The bed itself is solid and suitable to my requirements. Worth every penny!! Thanks to all at WE.

HK from Surrey

I bought a bed from Warren Evans years ago. It is as chic now as it was then. [...] Just as classic in style. Drawers are a storage saviour! Only topped by the lovely service. Couldn't ask for more. Personal service, attention to detail and a lovely person at the end of the phone. Wonderful company, highly recommend!

Emma C

The quality of the bed and the mattress are superb!! This is the third bed and mattress i have bought from this outstanding family business. The quality of the mattress and bed is far superior to the 'Simba' mattresses of this world. If you are looking for a new bed or mattress, look no further. Fabulous!

Reshen

This is the third bed frame I have bought from Warren Evans. The quality is excellent, built to last! The choices of leg height, headboard height and coverings is great. And finally, the delivery guys were so helpful and really nice! My new bed frame is just what I wanted at a very good price.

NS

The bed and mattress is of excellent quality, the service to co-ordinate delivery and install, impeccable. Delivery went smoothly and the under bed storage boxes are great. Your team are absolutely fantastic too! I already recommend you to all my friends who are thinking of buying new beds.

PL

Fantastic quality service [...]. It's my second Warren Evans bed, the first one I bought over thirty years ago from Warren and sadly gave up due to a move. In my view this company beats others in efficiency, communication, integrity and helpfulness.

Mrs Jg

Brilliant customer service and truly wonderful products. I've used Warren Evans for over twenty years and still have products that I purchased which are as stylish and robust as ever. Give them a try – you won't regret it!!!

Gillian

This is our second order from Warren Evans and as before the service was superb. Beds were ordered on a Bank Holiday and arrived the following week. All the staff were most helpful and the quality of the beds is excellent.

Damon P

This is my second bed from WE (over a period of many many years!) and I can't fault them for service or products. Love my WE bed & mattress and, for me, it's money well spent.

Miss S

Very good communication about the delivery and the guys who set the bed up were excellent. The bed looks great and is very comfortable.

Mr C from Kent

I've now made two orders from Warren Evans… and 10 years apart! [...] Amazing quality and the best service. It’s worth it, I promise!

Sarah T

I love the style and quality. Im so impressed with the beds. It was recommended to me by a colleague.

Ian Fitzwilliam

Your supply of our beds has been exemplary and the beds are unbelievably good.

LB from Croydon

Warren Evans beds are superb quality and will last a life time (almost)!

  •  

    I was 17 when I started making beds here in London in 1978. Building beds that last and using sustainable natural materials has always been a core requirement and became the first FSC certified bed makers (as well as the oldest)!

    Sadly, most beds and mattresses sold in the UK are really skimpy and are made of poor quality materials that are unethically sourced. I focus on craftsmanship and environmentally sound practices to make beautiful products that last. I like delivering good service and value. 

    Since 1978 I've been handmaking lasting quality beds here in London.
