Happy St. Patrick’s Day


St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration of the patron saint of Ireland and has become one of the World’s largest celebrated holidays overtaking festivals such as the Fourth of July and Cinco de Mayo. There doesn’t seem to be a reason behind why the remembrance of the Emerald Isle saint has become such a global party.

An Irish historian, Michael Cronin, based in Boston MA has explained the modern version of the holiday is largely an American export, celebrations gaining popularity as Irish immigrants asserted their cultural and political presence in American society. Parades in the U.S. started cropping up in the 1800s, but in Dublin you wouldn’t have seen that kind of celebration until around the 1990s due to civil conflicts. Continue reading

Standard Bed Frame -vs- Space Saver


If space in your home is a little tight then check out our great range of Space Saver Beds!

There are many things to take into consideration when purchasing a new bed. For most people it is the largest thing in the bedroom and this can mean that space is often compromised. At Get Laid Beds we don’t believe this has to be the case!  Whilst we offer a great choice of Standard Frames to suit any bedroom, our range of Space Saving Beds come in really handy too – especially for those with limited or restricted room sizes (such as loft conversions or box rooms) and is the reason many people choose us to hand build their next bed.

Many customers ask what the differences are between a Standard and Space Saver frame so this Blog will help you identify which one is right for your needs. The clue may be in the name but the main difference between them is our Space Saver bed frames are slightly smaller than their Standard alternative but still take the same sized mattress; with the Space Saver frames no more than 3cm wider than the mattress. This can make all the difference to those with fitted wardrobes or smaller room dimensions.

The second main difference is aesthetic – the mattress would ordinarily rest within the frame of our standard wooden bed where the mattress instead lays on top of the frame in a Space Saver. One of our most popular frames is the Low Oriental Space Saver.  This can give the Space Saver a different look and feel. And if you are looking to buy two beds to push together to create a larger sleeping space then our White Knight Space Saver is ideal.

Back Pain? The Orthopaedic Mattress Can Help!


Do you suffer from chronic back pain or arthritis?  If your sleeping pattern is compromised because of joint pain or spinal issues then an Orthopaedic Mattress is just what you need to help support you while you snooze.

Many of us do not have the best mattress for our individual needs and therefore do not feel the benefit or comfort of a more appropriate product.

Featuring a unique Bonnell spring unit our Orthopaedic Mattress is firmer than many of the other mattresses that we supply and is available in all sizes from small single (2ft 6”) to the largest size we manufacture, the 9ft Super Caesar and we can even manufacture them in Ikea European sizes.

With a continuous spring unit every spring draws support from the next to ensure the support and strength you might expect from a firm mattress. All of the fillings are carefully selected and encased in a micro quilted woven cover which means you get the feel of a truly quality mattress without the luxury price tag!

The Orthopaedic Mattress is also a fantastic option to consider for an occasional/guest bed or for a child’s mattress.

More Happy Customers


At Get Laid Beds we take pride in our quality craftsmanship, beautiful designs and helpful customer service. We want your experience to be special from the moment you place your order to when you’re sleeping on your brand new bed. We love hearing back from our customers and seeing pictures of the beds we have made and have thought we’d share some of the feedback we have had recently;

Jane said ‘From ordering over the phone, spoke to a very helpful and lovely lady, to picking the bed up ourselves, as we live down the road, and to making up our new space saver bed, which fits perfectly in between our new fitted wardrobes, the service and the quality of the product were/are excellent. Would definitely recommend to anyone to purchase from this company.’

Amanda said ‘The beds I purchased were for my two sons who are in their late teens. They both wanted a contemporary style but a natural material and it was one of them who found the website. It was very easy to navigate and make choices, then ordering was equally painless. The order arrived in good time and the products are just as we expected….. If not better. We would recommend and would use again.’

Thank you both for your feedback

Pets In Bed


Having pets in bed isn’t unusual in England. A survey found that almost half of dogs sleep in their owner’s bed and the survey also mentions that 75% of cats sleep with their owners. I think it is most pet owners intentions to keep the pet out the bedroom and off the bed but unless you are persistent and can ignore their cries and meows throughout the night eventually you give in and you can’t remember the last time you slept without that bundle of fluff under the duvet.

So does it affect your health having your pet share the covers? If you have no allergies or asthma there’s not really any negative impact on your health, however pets can disturb your sleep.  A study by the Mayo Clinic Sleep Disorders Center noticed that half their patients in the study had a dog or cat, and 53% of those pet owners said their pets disturbed their sleep regularly. It is recommended that people who have difficulty sleeping consider keeping pets out of the bedroom.

On the other hand studies have also shown that pets can help you sleep. Some people feel safer having their dog in bed which helps people feel at ease and sleep easier also having a dog with rhythmic breathing sleeping beside you has been said to work better than some sleeping drugs.

So it would seem the nations on the fence about allowing pets in bed. I couldn’t think of anything better than having a fluffy hot water bottle in the form of a cat to cuddle up to on a cold night.

Sleeping During The Day

We’ve all been there; the office on Friday afternoon with hours to go before home time. You feel yourself nodding off and then BANG the phone rings and all of a sudden you are back in the room and wondering what time it is!

It is sometimes tempting to have a nap during working hours – and great if you can get away with it! Studies conducted actually showed that 63% of the participants took in less than 6 hours of sleep every single night – less than the recommended 7.5 hours.

It has been proven that napping through the afternoon has significant mental and physical advantages – refreshing the mind, therefore increasing productivity for the rest of the day and allowing the body to recharge its batteries. Stress levels can significantly reduce by taking short naps too.

Short sleeps for periods of no longer than 15 to 20 minutes will stop you from slipping into a deep sleep which is always harder to wake up from.

However, most employers look down upon their staff falling asleep at their desk. If you find yourself not, well, yourself throughout the day it might be time to consider a new bed and mattress that are right for you. Many people grow complacent with their old bed and mattress but over time the body becomes accustomed. There are so many benefits to sleeping on a new mattress, your mind, your body (and your boss) will thank you for it!

Why Are Sleeping Patterns So Important?

During these cold winter months the nights seem longer and the temptation to get into bed early at night or lie in each morning is just too great! But it is vital to give yourself a regular sleep pattern. Scientists and Psychologists have studied the effects of how sleep affects the body and mind for many years.

Recent studies suggest that people who avoid sleep by staying up late and do not allow themselves a regular sleeping pattern can in fact cause long term side effects, including feelings of prolonged negativity and heightened stress levels.

But it isn’t always enough to simply go to bed at a suitable time. There are other things you can do to guarantee that your sleep is as restful as possible – like turning off any electrical equipment such as TV’s or computers, opening a window to get a flow of fresh air and ensuring your mattress is suitable for your needs.

It is recommended by the Official Sleep Council (yes they exist!) that people require between 7 and 8 hours of restful sleep each night in order to feel the maximum benefit and function properly. Sleeping for longer than this can result in slower and sluggish behaviour and less could result in lower productivity levels, a reduced reaction time and even serious health issues like diabetes and depression.

So make sure your sleeping like a dog to stay happy and healthy!
