Why You Love Get Laid Beds

We love hearing what you’ve got to say about your new Get Laid Bed and we thought we’d share some of our favourite reviews from the last couple of months.

Marcus says “I ordered a Four Poster Classic bed for delivery to Denmark and it arrived in good time. The team were very helpful and kept me updated along the way. I love the bed it works really well in my room! No issues with putting the bed together. Really happy with the service I received and I am keen to recommend the company to others! Good Job Guys!

You all know we specialise in handmade wooden bed frames, what you may not be aware of is our collection of handmade mattresses

Caroline says “We already had a small double bed frame so were just looking to replace the old mattress with one of better quality and support for our ever growing teenage son. The choice of mattresses in this size in the marketplace is limited, as is the quality, so we were pleased to find the Getlaidbeds website offered a wide number of options.

We chose the Pocket 2000 Memory mattress and it was delivered at lunchtime on the chosen day. When I saw the courier walking down the drive with the mattress balanced up on his shoulder, I thought we’d made an error of judgement and it was going to be a light, flimsy mattress.

I was wrong. The courier is obviously very strong!

It took 2 of us to unwrap it (the packaging is excellent) and manoeuvre it on to the bed frame.

As for comfort? Our son is sleeping so well on this mattress and hasn’t got a bad word to say about it. He sometimes used to suffer from back pain first thing in the morning and that has gone completely. I just wish we had changed his mattress sooner.

Thank you for your comments everyone.

The Low Down: The Low Loft and Low Modern Beds

Low Bed Frames might not be the first style you imagine when thinking about buying a new bed but they are a very popular choice and an excellent idea for many reasons:

Firstly they are a wonderful way of creating extra space in a bedroom. If you are limited for space then low bed frames trick the eye into thinking the room is larger than it actually is.

Low Loft and Low Modern bed frames are excellent choices especially if you are creating a bedroom in a loft conversion or attic space. No headboard means the bed is suitable for rooms with low eaves.

The Low Loft and Low Modern beds can also promote a minimalist / oriental theme. As the bed frame lays on the ground there is no room for clutter.

Many people believe sleeping closer to the ground actually promotes a healthier sleep pattern. And it’s easier to simply roll in and out of bed – literally!

Don’t forget all of our beds have an 11 Year Guarantee and will arrive flat packed in long thin boxes so getting them up the stairs is easy!

There Was 7 In The Bed And The Little One Said

 

Curious to what a 9 foot Super Caesar size bed frame looks like in real life? I know I was when I joined the Get Laid Beds team. This is a picture of our hardworking workshop team having a well earned lie down within a Super Caesar Four Poster bed frame.

The Super Caesar is the largest size we currently manufacture and would be ideal if you’re looking to make a statement.

So what are the benefits of such a large bed? Continue reading

Feng Shui Your Home

 

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese philosophy in which it is believed total harmony can be achieved and shared by everyone through the organisation and ‘flow’ of their surroundings.

We all know that a clean and tidy workspace is better than a cluttered and cramped one, in the physical sense. Though the idea behind Feng Shui is that when a space is organised in a certain way it will inherently benefit from positive “Qi” or “Chi” in a spiritual sense which in turn lends itself to promoting general well being in those who exist within that space.

This Eastern ideology has been adopted by the West and is taken seriously by Architects and Designers hoping to maximise both space and the feeling of positive energy in an environment.

There are simple things we can do in our own bedrooms to achieve this positive flow of energy – here are just a few: Continue reading

Sleep In Style!

 

The Four Poster Bed is a sign of style and sophistication, and for centuries has been a statement of wealth.  Many Kings, Queens and Dignitaries demanded nothing less.  A lot of people still see a Four Poster Bed as a status symbol or something only for the wealthy but this is no longer the case.

60-minute-makeover-with-a-white-wooden-four-poster-bed-from-get-laid-beds

Tune into ITV’s “60 Minute Makeover” at 2pm on Tuesday 2nd December 2014 and watch Peter Andre and his crew “Team 60” as they re-design one lucky family’s home and give a new lease of life to one very tired bedroom in particular by using (you guessed it) one of our very own Get Laid Beds!

The unsuspecting family’s Master Bedroom will feature the Classic Four Poster Bed – a truly stunning bed frame and one of our most popular sellers! Our wooden Four Poster Bed is a bold statement piece that will be the main feature and designed to compliment the newly refurbished bedroom.

“60 Minute Makeover” has been on our screens for a number of years and has seen several different celebrities pick up a roller and get involved. Singer and Reality TV star turned presenter Peter Andre is the latest face to host the show which offers families the home of their dreams by secretly revamping their property whilst the family are out of the house and completely unaware.

Get Laid Beds are delighted to have been selected and we’re all very excited to watch this latest episode. For more information on our Four Poster Beds or indeed any of our wooden bed frames, our dedicated Customer Service Team are always happy to help.

Have you started your Christmas present shopping yet?

 

christmas present

Christmas is now just a few short weeks away! Have you started shopping for presents yet?

Good things don’t just come in small packages, you know. In fact, our Beds come flat packed in long, thin boxes for easy self assembly – so could easily be wrapped and popped under the tree before the big day, (although admittedly they might still be the biggest presents there). Our wide range of beds would make the perfect Christmas gift and could be especially handy if you are planning to host extra guests over the holidays. Whether you need a low bed, a long bed or even a low, long bed we have just the style for you.

And if you need a new bed before the Festive Season begins we’ve got that covered too. Whilst many companies are currently offering turnaround times of anywhere up to 8 weeks, our little Workshop Elves are working as hard as ever to get orders ready for delivery in just 1 week! (Simply select our “Urgent” delivery option!) Order today and don’t miss out – or you might end up on Santa’s “naughty” list if you don’t get your families presents sorted in time!

Bonfire Night

 

Next week is Bonfire Night, an evening of fun, frivolity and fireworks!  An enjoyable festivity enjoyed by the many staff here at Get Laid Beds, with some trying to get their hands on a spare piece of wood or two that we might have lying around the workshop!

Traditionally celebrated by building and burning a huge pile of wood, Bonfire Night is one of the most popular nights of the year – dating back to 1605 with the story of Guy Fawkes and the failed Gunpowder Plot. Ever since then, people have burned his effigy on a Bonfire.

This year though, if you’re running short of firewood, you could yourself… buy a brand new bed (from Get Laid Beds naturally) and use the old bed frame as Bonfire Fuel?!

“Beds are Burning” is actually an old track from Australian Rock Band “Midnight Oil” (we don’t know it either) although VH1 voted it 95 in their Top 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 80’s!
