The Four Poster Bed – Iconic and Sophisticated


For centuries The Four Poster Bed has been the go-to design for those wanting the next level of bedroom comfort and luxury and even today, they still symbolise abundance and opulence.

The Four Poster Bed was first invented in Europe and was initially developed from simpler bed frames at the time due to wealthy noble-men and landowners wanting to exhibit their position in society. For this reason, they were constructed bigger more flamboyant than anything that had previously been seen. Robust and expensive Hardwoods were used as the materials draped in luxurious fabrics such as velvets and fine wools. The four posts not only provided the bed with an extra level of privacy but also trapped heat inside – vital in the cold unheated homes at the time. Continue reading

Tight For Space? Consider A Space Saver Bed!

Low Oriental Bed Space Saver Bed

At Get Laid Beds, we believe our stylish bed should not compromise comfort and space within the home and to maximise the bed space available to you. Therefore we are introducing our new range of wooden beds – the Space Saver Bed range.

Families grow, jobs change and hobbies come and go. With the average bedroom size decreasing inversely proportionally to the amount of ‘clutter’ we now all possess – everyone is keen to take advantage of any extra space within the home

Our new Space Saver Bed Range works by superseding the concept of the mattress sitting within the bed frame but instead sitting flush directly on top of the bed frame.

An Extra Large Bed To Suit The Most Adventurous


I am sure, for those who heard when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie expressed their needs for an 11ft bed because their 9ft bed wasn’t big enough for their growing family, the thought of having an extra large bed no doubt went through each and every one of our minds and if you didn’t, I’m sure it is now.

Perhaps the thought of having a lazy Sunday to do nothing but lie in front of the TV, or spend some good family time after a busy day at work or perhaps just simply to not be kicked in the shins or elbowed in the face throughout the night.

Because of this and through market research we have expanded the range of bed sizes we can now offer, originally topping off with a 6ft Super King Bed, over the past few years we have developed our range and now offer the following extra large bed sizes: Continue reading

Don’t Let The Bedbugs Bite!


When you were a child were you warned about the nasty bed bugs biting you in your sleep? It always makes children laugh but many people don’t realise how true a threat this actually is!

The “Bedbug” or Cimex Lectularius (to give the thing it’s latin name) has been regarded as a human parasite for literally thousands of years. This is because they feed pretty much exclusively from our blood.

They were given the name “Bedbug” because the bedroom is generally where they choose to live and breed – more specifically near to or inside your mattress or headboard! Whilst they are not exclusively nocturnal creatures they have a tendency to be most active when we go to sleep. They are extremely tiny and we usually wouldn’t know if they were feeding on us.

If this wasn’t enough to make you consider buying a new bed and mattress or just replacing your bedding then just think about all the millions of dead skin cells and hair follicles that your old mattress plays home to! Time for a change? Check out the range on our website.

We didn’t want to haunt your thoughts with a picture of a bed bug so heres one of a sleepy sealion, enjoy!

Choosing your ideal Low Bed Frame


We here at Get Laid Beds know how hard it can be to pick your ideal bed, especially with the choices available when it comes to handmade beds.  After careful deliberation we have some tips for you to follow, to help guide you through the process.

When choosing your low bed frame firstly look at why you want a low bed?  Is it their fashionable aesthetic or a more practical reason?  The fashion followers out there will love our Low Oriental Bed, with its functional headboard and minimalist designed legs that will not intrude on your bed spreads.  Currently fashion trends are screaming for the clean white lines that we can provide with our Scandinavian Pine bed frames and also the White Wash and Off White Cream stains can really change up your room.  With the White Wash Satin stain really adding some texture to modern bedrooms.  Also if you have a low bed frame in mind, but with a slightly larger ground clearance (or less) we can make this happen through our bespoke alteration service.

If you have more practical reasons for a low bed choice such as a low level window or generally low sloping ceilings then a Low Loft Bed is the perfect solution.  With minimal ground clearance it is a delicately designed simple bed frame that will fit in with most bedroom styles. Continue reading
