Reliable and Top Quality Mattresses from Beds Glasgow

Cashmere Memory Sprung Mattress

Purchasing a new mattress can be quite daunting,often seen as a chore by many. However, when you shop with us here at Beds Glasgow, we will ensure that your buying experience is enjoyable and that, ultimately, you are totally satisfied with your purchase. Unlike the lady in our story below.


The lady in question was horrified to find what appeared to be blood stains on her ‘new’ mattress. Johanna McHugh paid £140 for the mattress, which was described as ‘brand new looking’ in the online advert. However, once she received it and unwrapped the plastic packaging, she noticed stains that looked like blood. “I just went nuts after I saw that. I said it was disgusting selling a bed like that to anyone,” she explained. It was not just the mattress where there was an issue with; the divan base’s hessian was torn and tattered as well.

Refurbished Mattresses

She contacted the firm to request a full refund but was instead told to send in pictures of the damaged goods. She soon found that the advertisers were based in Birmingham, despite the Gumtree advert she had seen suggesting that the beds were from Swindon. The company had advertised the mattresses as “Totally in as 100% immaculate condition (not new but look totally as 100% SHOWROOM brand new)”.

A spokesperson for the company insisted that the adverts made it clear that the mattresses are all refurbished. The mattress that Mrs McHugh had received was a one-off, but he would be offering her a refund. He added, “There is no law against selling refurbished mattresses. Our policy is that if there is a complaint we will exchange it. It’s about negotiation. We offered to exchange.”

Reliable Source

We cannot comment on why the lady in question opted for the particular mattress she did, but when buying a mattress from Beds Glasgow, you can rest assured that you are buying from a reliable source. All our mattresses are brand new, top quality and affordable; and they all come with the relevant paperwork and tags as well. For more information, contact us today.

How Placebo Pills Can Help to Reduce Back Pain

How Placebo Pills Can Help to Reduce Back Pain

Those who suffer from chronic back pain would likely do anything to help ease their symptoms. And results of a new study from researchers at Harvard medical school have found that patients knowingly taking a placebo for their pain improved more than patients who took medication for it.

Placebo Effect

In most human trials, a section of participants will be given a placebo drug so that scientists can compare the results between the real medication and a non-active pill. Those who participate in these studies do not usually know whether they have been allocated the active or non-active medicationor not.

However, in this study, patients with chronic back pain knew they were taking a placebo. On average, this group reported a thirty per cent pain reduction after a three-week course compared to a nine to sixteen per cent reduction among those who were taking active pain medication.

Brain Power

Ted Kaptchuk, the study author,said that the results of the research showed that, while back pain is a very real condition, individuals have the brain power to relieve more discomfort than they realise. He added, “You’re never going to shrink a tumour or unclog an artery with placebo intervention. It’s not a cure-all, but it makes people feel better, for sure. Our lab is saying you can’t throw the placebo into the trash can. It has clinical meaning, it’s statistically significant, and it relieves patients. It’s essential to what medicine means.”

Claudia Carvalho, who co-authored the study, said that it is important for patients to feel cared for, and added, “Taking placebo pills to relieve symptoms without a warm and empathic relationship with a healthcare provider relationship probably would not work.”

A Comfortable Bed

While medication and placebo pills obviously help with back pain, a good comfortable bed can also work wonders. Here at Beds Glasgow, we have a superb range of beds and mattresses made to provide the ultimate comfort every single night.

Check out our fabulous range of mattresses, which includes orthopaedic options and memory foam for added comfort.

Championing Local Heritage

MD of Harrison Spinks’ components divisionRichard Essery has commented on the use of the Wensleydale breeds wool.

Survey Reveals Many Scottish Couples Sleep Apart

Survey Reveals Many Scottish Couples Sleep Apart

While most couples enjoy cuddling up in their double or king-size bed, a new survey has found that one in ten people in Scotland find themselves turfed out of their comfy bed to the spare room at least once every month.

Separate Beds

The survey, conducted by DistinctiveChesterfields.com, found that while Scottish people often sleep apart, inhabitants of Yorkshire are the most likely to sleep in separate beds to their partner. In fact, of those questioned, fourteen per cent admitted to sleeping apart in that county.

Back up on this side of the border, the reasons given by Scots for sleeping apart was being unable to sleep due to their partner’s loud snoring, or arguments that caused one person to head to the spare room. When you consider the fact that Scottish couples argue at least once every week, there is definitely a need for more than one bed in the house! A fifth of couples actually admitted to sleeping separately for at least two days after an argument.


Those over the age of fifty-five were more likely to sleep apart for longer, with one-in-six spending three nights apart. Those in the 18-24 age bracket tended to make up before they headed to bed. Reasons for arguments included tidiness of the house, money, driving, and family members. It was revealed that when it came to the tidiness of the house, Scottish couples argued the most.

When looking for an alternative bed for the night, most people headed for the spare room;however, this was closely followed by the sofa. Although this may be hard to believe, a staggering 7.5 per cent admitted to sleeping in the bath!

Comfortable Beds

If you are regularly banished to the spare room because of your partner’s snoring or an argument over how tidy the house is, you should consider one of our many comfortable beds. We have a huge range of affordable beds and mattresses in a variety of styles and sizes. Next time you find yourself in need of another place to bed down for the night, at least you know you will get a good night’s sleep.
