How we test products
Our mission is to take the guesswork out of finding the perfect sleep products.
We've dedicated hundreds of hours to testing mattresses and sleep accessories, and rely on a team of testers of differing weights, temperature preferences, and sleeping positions to evaluate each product.
Tested products are granted the Sleep Hero tested stamp of approval, a mark of our review's reliability.
If we haven't personally tested a product, please be assured that we invest significant time and energy into scouring the UK market and researching the best recommendations, and we work with a team of sleep experts who review our articles, ensuring that the insights we provide are not only relatable but also reliable.
Why buy an Emma bed?
Many bed frames are available online, so why choose an Emma bed?
Every Emma bed includes a 200-night sleep trial.
While many mattresses include trials, getting a trial on a bed frame is unusual. 😮
This means you can fully try the bed, and if you don’t get on with it, you can send it back for a full refund. 💰
Emma bed frames are also much better quality than standard cheap frames, which means they should outlive their guarantee.
And while aesthetics isn’t the most important, they are some of the most stylish frames available without compromising too much space. 🌌
These options are particularly compact:
How to assemble an Emma bed
Emma bed frames are all self-assembled. ✅
This means you will have to put the bed together yourself (or with a friend!).
There is no additional assembly option you can add at checkout.
Yet, Emma bed frames are relatively easy to assemble and should only take 15 - 30 mins.
The video below gives you an idea of how to assemble the Emma Signature bed:
If you’re not keen on DIY, consider the Emma divan bed instead.
Unlike Emma bed frames, this comes in two halves and just needs to be clipped together.

What else does Emma sell?
Although we think the Emma beds are great, the Emma mattress is their best-selling product.
The Emma Original mattress is the UK’s most awarded mattress and made from pressure-relieving foam layers.
These comfort layers contour around your body shape and support the spine to relieve tension in the lower back and joints.
Emma Sleep also sells various accessories, including extra breathable pillows, a waterproof mattress protector, a temperature regulating duvet, and more.
The Emma mattress topper is popular for those struggling with comfort but aren’t ready to commit to a new mattress.

Emma bed sleep trial
Just like the Emma mattress, every Emma bed includes a 200-night trial.
So, what does this mean exactly?
It means you can test your Emma bed or send it back for a full refund.
If you decide you don't want your Emma bed within the 200 nights, contact Emma via the returns portal, and they'll arrange a collection.
Why is a trial on a bed frame important?
When visiting a store, it's difficult to tell if a bed frame will suit the bedroom.
Often a bed showroom has special LED lighting without natural light, which can change how the bed frame or divan looks.
A sleep trial means you can physically see how your new bed frame fits into your own space before making a final decision.
It also means you can see if the new bed frame affects the comfort of your mattress.
Slatted bed frames create a softer feel, while divans provide firmer comfort.
Are Emma beds good?
We think Emma has a great selection of beds that will be suitable for most people. 👨👩👧👦
But it’s up to you to decide your budget, storage needs, style, and assembly options.
The Emma Signature bed is the most popular, while the Emma Platform bed is a great budget-friendly choice. 💰
Remember, you have 200 nights to decide if the bed frame is right for you and your space.
