How do I assemble my Silentnight bed?

If you are buying from us, there's no need to worry as it’s all part of the service, unless otherwise stated.

How do I assemble my Silentnight divan bed?

Your Silentnight divan bed is reasonably easy to assemble. Follow our simple instructions and you won’t go wrong whether you are putting together a divan base with drawers or without.

  • Start by pushing the castors into the corner sockets. Gently tap with a wooden mallet until fully home. Do not use a metal hammer as this is likely to cause damage. If your bed has legs, these will need to be screwed in tightly.
  • In the case of a double, king size or super king size bed, you will need to join the 2 divan bases.
  • Using U clips, stand the bases on their sides. The U clips will need to be fitted across the central timber bars. Press firmly to connect.
  • Carefully turn bed back onto its castors and place your Silentnight mattress on top.

How do I assemble my Silentnight ottoman bed?

Although Silentnight ottoman beds are straight forward to assemble, they do require a little work more than a divan bed. Follow our instructions and it should be easy enough.

  • Stand the ottoman bed on its side and fit the glides / castors.
  • To connect the bases, carefully position them so they are standing on their glides / castors with lids open. Position the bases together.
  • There are two drilled holes on the inner side of each base. Pierce the fabric and using the male & female connectors, join the bases.
  • There is a spacer that sits between the divans to allow for any irregularity in the floor. Slotting the bolts through this can be fiddly. And don’t forget to use a metal washer with each connector.
  • To connect the lid, you will need another male & female bolt and two washers. There’s a ‘pierce here’ label at the foot end of the ottoman lid. Pierce the fabric and screw the connectors together.
  • Lower the lid and your Silentnight mattress can now be placed on the ottoman base.

How do I assemble my Silentnight half ottoman bed?

Although Silentnight half ottoman beds are straight forward to assemble, they do require a little work more than a divan bed. Follow our instructions and it should be easy enough.

  • Stand the ottoman base on its side and fit the castors / glides.
  • Repeat for the other half.
  • To join the two half bases, bring them together and position the metal clips in the recess of the black undercover. These are then screwed in place to hold firm.
