Hardwood Flooring: Traditional, charming and a wise investment

Customers often come in to our showroom with a barrel load of questions about flooring. What flooring should I choose? Which is the cheapest type of flooring? What is the most durable type of flooring?

These questions are completely understandable. When it comes to choosing new floor, you are making one of the most important decisions you’re likely to face in the next decade; I say that because that’s how long you’ll be left to rue the consequences of any bad decision you take on the issue. No one wants to be reminded day after day about a bad decision they’ve made, but that’s exactly what will happen if you don’t select the right floor!

So Modish Furnishing is here to help make sure you make the right choice when it comes to your next floor! Here are some advantages of choosing Hardwood Flooring over the likes of carpet, laminate or vinyl…

Benefits of Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood Flooring is easy to clean

There comes the dog, paws covered in mud, right onto the living room carpet… oh and there’s a child, carelessly and clumsily spilling blackcurrant juice all over that nice new cream rug.

Is this the kind of nightmare scenario that keeps you up at night? If it is, then maybe it’s high time you switched to Hardwood Flooring.

Hardwood Flooring is unbelievably easy to clean: it’s as simple as wiping it down or sweeping it up. No more stains, no more pet hair, no more worries!

Hardwood floors last longer

Hardwood floors are immune to common issues that plague, threaten and ruin floors and carpets in the modern family home. A hardwood floor will repel dirt, stains, dust, water and all the problems that come with them.

What would normally ruin a carpet is easy work for a hardwood floor!

When maintained correctly, a Hardwood Floor is capable of lasting a lifetime. This not only represents outstanding value for money, but also makes life a whole lot easier knowing you needn’t replace your existing floor once a decade!

Hardwood Floors are more Hygienic than Carpet

Lurking beneath every soft step on a carpet lies a filthy secret: hidden in amongst each and every fibre of your woven carpet are things like: bad smells, pollen, dust particles, dirt, germs and lord only knows what else.

These nasty little surprises get stuck in between the furry fibres of the carpet and can remain trapped for years if your carpet isn’t professionally treated regularly.

None of these issues affect a Hardwood Floor though, a little bit of TLC is all that’s needed and all of those pesky odours and dirt particles are gone!

Hardwood Flooring looks amazing

This point is more of a subjective one, but it’s difficult to disagree: nothing looks more impressive than a traditional wooden floor.

Hardwood floors create a comfortable and homely vibe, adding a timeless charm to any room. No other type of flooring can replicate the elegance afforded by a hardwood floor. It’s even well known among estate agents that houses are more desirable and easier to sell when they have hardwood floors!

A gift to the senses, hardwood floors feel great underfoot, look superb and bring a sophisticated wooden aroma to the home.

Hardwood Flooring is more versatile

The incredibly wide ranging variety of hardwood flooring is yet another reason it stands above its contemporaries.

Hardwood Flooring comes in many different styles, hues, stains and textures: giving you the ability to engineer your preferred style for your home.

Conclusion

So there you have it, the benefits of opting for Hardwood Flooring over a new carpet. As with anything there are downsides and no right or wrong answers. A carpet may be better suited for one person, while a hardwood floor may be the smarter choice for someone else.

At Modish Furnishing, we want to make sure you make the correct choice and aren’t left with empty pockets and regret. Our blogs are designed to inform and educate. Our team of expert staff members are on hand in store to show you our ranges and advise you on the most appropriate choice for your needs.

Italian Furniture: Timeless, Stylish and Cool

Modern Italian furniture with led lights
The Planeta Range

Great Italian Furniture at reasonable prices is very hard to come by. This is especially true here in Glasgow, where there’s little choice. For this reason, Modish Furnishing put great importance on supplying top quality, luxury Italian Furniture.

Imagine there was a World Cup of cool, in which nations battled it out to decide which country is worthy of sitting upon the throne of chic. We’re fairly certain that more often than not, the Italians would win it!

Few other nations have what it takes to compete with those suave and stylish Italians. They make it all look so effortless, while we Brits spend fortunes on the high street in the constant struggle to look semi-presentable.

But luckily for us, the Italians are keen exporters of everything that makes their nation so great and enviable. Fashion and food come right at the top of this list – chances are if you’re reading this blog you’ve probably had some sort of Italian meal within the last week.

There’s something else though, something much more synonymous with the Italian nation and its identity – furniture.

Rich History of Italian Furniture

Classically styled Italian furniture
The Alena Range

When it comes to design and ingenuity, Italy has long been at the forefront of the industry. From architecture to art to interior design, Italy is a beacon for anyone looking for the latest trends and styles. ‘Made in Italy’ is a label which carries a lot of prestige in these fields, and Italy has come to be greatly admired for their continued contributions in these areas.

Italian made goods are synonymous with high quality, and this is certainly the case when it comes to Italian furniture. In Modish Furniture’s relatively short lifespan, we’ve come to learn than almost everything we bring in from Italy is masterfully designed and built to a higher standard than other furniture.

People regularly ask us specifically about Italian furniture, something that can’t be said about items made in other countries. That’s because the prestige of Italian furniture is so strong; whether we’re talking Italian beds, Italian dining sets or Italian sofas, people understand that Italy do it best.

Down here at Modish Furnishing, we’re constantly looking to Italy for inspiration and ideas. In conjunction with some of the biggest and best Italian designers, Modish Furnishing is able to offer high class, luxury items from the home of style.

Among the many great products in our showroom you’ll find plenty of Italian craftsmanship and design. Items of the utmost quality, just as you’d expect from the renowned Italian design houses we work with.

Bespoke Wooden Italian Furniture
The Savannah Range

Our advantageous partnerships with these Italian design houses means we are able to bring luxury Italian furniture to Glasgow easily, and at great prices. People assume the costs for Italian furniture are extravagant, but Modish Furnishing gives you affordability as well as opulence: bringing sophisticated, stylish and classy Italian furniture well within budget.

Affordable Italian Furniture

One of the best things about fine Italian furniture is its versatility. It doesn’t matter what kind of home you have, nor the style of the interior, Italian furniture will look great anywhere. That’s because items of the finest quality will always look good, no matter the surroundings.

No matter your style, there’s always room for quality. This is true of ultra modern homes, classical homes and everything in between. When furniture is well made it becomes more adaptable. A shoddy sofa won’t fit in anywhere, but an item of premium build and class will always stand out.

Italian furniture comes with style that is utterly irreplaceable and a feeling that can’t be replicated by anything else. Many manufacturers sacrifice build quality for aesthetics, or vice versa. This is something you don’t need to worry about when you buy Italian furniture.

Bespoke Italian Furniture

We supply unique ranges and collections from some of the most renowned designers in Italy. Sleep like a Roman Emperor in the Bellino and Alena bedrooms or give your home the millionaires touch with the LA Star collection.

By shopping Italian, you’ll be furnishing your home with a prestige that you can’t find anywhere else. This is home decor like you’ve never seen it before. This is Italian superiority.

July Mattress Offer

A few months back we slowly began drip-feeding information about our new partnership with Mattress5, creators of a revolutionary new mattress that we would be bringing to Modish Furnishing. Our affiliation with Mattress5 would see us become one of only a select few companies permitted to stock these brand new products, something we were very excited about indeed.

After months of patiently waiting, sharing photos on social media and reading all about Mattress5, Modish received its first shipment of mattresses this week. To finally see them in the flesh in our showroom was a big moment, and allowed us to appreciate the true quality and feel of the range.

Considering I’ve been writing and posting about these mattresses for some time now, I was understandably elated to finally get my hands on them, and carry out the all important ‘jumping into bed’ test!

Needless to say, the test was a success and these mattresses are the real deal!

As for timing, there couldn’t have been a better time for them to arrive, as Mattress5 are doing an incredible £100 RRP off each of their mattresses throughout the month of July! The range consists of three distinct mattresses, each coming with its own unique benefits.

The Peach, The Snoozer and Firm But Fair are the three mattresses available from Mattress5, all three if which are now on show in our showroom; ready for testing! After giving them a thorough inspection myself, I’m convinced everyone will fall in love with at least one of them!

With these mattresses, Mattress5 promises to deliver ‘affordable sleep technology for all’: principles and values Modish Furnishing certainly agree with! We believe everyone should be entitled to a great night’s sleep; one to leave you refreshed, re-energised and prepared to face the day ahead.

Mattress5 have designed each of their new mattresses with this goal in mind. Whether it’s The Peach, The Snoozer or the Firm But Fair, there’s a mattress here for you.

The Offer

For the whole of July, Mattress5 are giving you the chance to pick up one of these incredible mattresses with a £100 discount off the RRP. There’s no catch at all! £100 off all Double and Kingsize mattresses! If you’ve been thinking about getting a new mattress, this is an offer you can’t afford to miss.

Simply call Modish Furnishing on 0141 429 3541 and ask about the offer, or visit our showroom, where you can test these luxuriously comfortable mattresses for yourself!

The Mattresses

The Peach

Mattress5 claim the firmness rating on this mattress is ‘gorgeous’ and when you test it you’ll understand why. Affectionately named “The Peach” for its ever so sweetly soft feel, this mattress is designed to make you feel as though you’re sleeping on air.

The added Zero Gravity comfort layers see to this, and will deal with the pressure points which cause some people to toss and turn during the night. These added layers also help to control the temperature of the mattress, ensuring it’s never too warm and never too cold.

Made up from individually pocketed springs, this mattress delivers full support to those lucky enough to experience it. Edge support is guaranteed thanks to a foam encapsulation and you won’t need to worry about the mattress as time goes on, as it’s protected with a bioactive cover to keep it fresh for years.

This mattress is designed for people seeking a beautiful, soft night’s sleep, and for those who wish to gently drift into a deep sleep on a cloud like surface. This super soft mattress will allow you to get the perfect rest and free you of the stresses and strains of the previous day.

The Snoozer

Created with the same base as The Peach, this mattress delivers a firmer feel than its counterpart. With a firmness rating of medium, this mattress delivers head to toe support, as well as a luxurious feel which is quite frankly unmatched elsewhere in the mattress world.

On top of the base of individually pocketed springs and foam encapsulated edges, The Snoozer is topped with several soft, sumptuous layers of hypoallergenic white fibres, with each layer of fibres getting more and more luxurious until the top layer of lavish, soothing comfort.

Simply put, this mattress is the perfect blend of support and comfort.

Firm But Fair

For anyone who prefers or needs a mattress with a firmer support system, Mattress5 have developed this mattress.

Many people believe that stepping up the firmness of a mattress means giving up comfort, but this is certainly not the case when it comes to Mattress5. While this mattress is rated as a ‘medium/firm’, the pocketed spring system that makes it up is topped with a generous layer of hypoallergenic comfort to guide you off to sleep in a gentle and relaxing manner.

Not too hard, not too soft: Firm But Fair.

Billy Connolly and 3D Wall Panels

‘Cube’ Panels

If you’re from Glasgow, you’ll be well aware of the news about the three Billy Connolly murals that have gone up around the city. These massive works of art were commissioned by Glasgow City Council and erected as a 75th Birthday gift, and homage to, to one of Glasgow’s most famous exports.

The murals are spectacular; painted by three very talented, yet very different Scottish artists. Each brings a different part of the city to life in its own unique way. As a massive Billy Connolly fan myself, I went a stroll around the city last week to have a look. I expected to like them, and I did. I think they’re a wonderful addition to the City and I firmly believe in honouring those who have achieved great things, as Billy Connolly has over the last five decades.

However, it was something else that struck me about the 50 foot high works art. Something that superseded the actual content of them, what they were depicting and what they meant. What really stood out to me – even as a long time Billy Connolly-phile – was how attractive and appealing the buildings now were thanks to the murals.

Adding an artistic twist has transformed three previously bland, run down and uninteresting walls into something exciting and striking. The walls have become entities in their own right, full of character and life.

Doing something unusual and decorating the walls differently made has made a world of difference to each building. They’ll attract tourists. They’ll make people smile. They’ll be credited with starting conversations. They’ll brighten people’s day.

Being able to add something unique and interesting to dull walls isn’t exclusive to the big-wigs at Glasgow City Council, though. At Modish Furnishing, we’re giving our customers the opportunity to create something that stands out, literally.

We offer a diverse range of 3D wall panels that will help add another dimension to your home. By opting for 3D wall panels, you will get much more creative freedom when it comes to decorating your home. Paint the panels however you like, arrange them in fun patterns – leaving boring behind.

‘Ramp’ Panels

From refined and subtle shapes to bold and sharp styles, you’ll find anything to match the style you want to bring to a room. The 3D wall panels also come in a plain sand-coloured tone that allows you to paint over them however you like.

More freedom to create means your imagination is the only thing standing in the way of you and your dream home. Interior design will never be the same again now that 3D panels are available.

As well as the style advantages that come with the 3D panels, they’re made from a rigid polyurethane material which makes them tough and durable. Each panel is 50cm x 50cm, installation is easy and you needn’t worry about having to carry out any further treatment or maintenance after the work has been completed.

We have two sections of 3D wall panelling available to view in the demo areas of our showroom, showing the Slot and Slat variations of the panels. Each gives a different feel and you can use them in whichever way you choose. 3D wall panels put the power of design firmly in your own hands.

‘Trio’ Panels

3D Wall Panels allow you to create a home decor environment which stands out. Ordinary is boring. You want friends to be impressed when they walk into your home; you need clients to be wowed when they walk into your offices. 3D Wall Panels will do this.

It’s time to switch it up. While everyone is still stuck on wallpaper, Modish Furnishing are taking decor and design to the next level, adding an extra dimensions of style to the home.

Make my Wardrobe a Wiemann!

Avore Bedroom

Well ladies and gentleman, I can’t believe what I’m about to write. I’m struggling to fathom it. Should I pinch myself? Am I in a dream? Have I opened the wardrobe door and entered into Narnia? Or can it be that the sun has finally joined the party here in Glasgow!?

At the time of writing, the Glaswegian weather is delightful. So much so that I’m wishing I wasn’t sitting in front of a computer hammering away at the keyboard with such vigour and gusto – this enthusiasm should be spent out in the sun, with something cold to hand!

Alas, I’m down at Modish HQ, doing my bit to help keep this ship sailing. As for ships, even the most lush and lavish cruise ships would gaze into our showroom with palpable envy! So what’s going on down here at Modish Furnishing that’s enough to keep us away from the fantastic weather out there?

Earlier on I mentioned about entering the wardrobe and going through to Narnia, and it’s wardrobes we’re excited about this week at Modish. Our eye wateringly stylish Wiemann Wardrobes to be exact!

A German company, you can be assured Wiemann will deliver when it comes to the all important points of efficiency and practicality – obviously two of the most crucial aspects to consider when choosing a wardrobe. You need to make sure your new wardrobe actually functions well enough as a wardrobe and does the job it’s supposed to do.

Imagine spending all that money on a lovely new sliding door wardrobe, only to find there’s nowhere to hang your shirts, store your clothes, hang your ties, or even worse: no specialised compartment for your socks?

Wiemann Sunset Wardrobe

For us, each one of these details, no matter how small they seem, are key when it comes to a wardrobe. Secondly, but by no means any less significant, is how it looks. And you only need to look at the photos of these Wiemann Wardrobes to realise they’re doing that part right.

A wide selection of colours, varying numbers of doors, sizes to match your needs and the option to choose how many mirrored panels you want, Wiemann wardrobes’ diversity and versatility helps them to stand out from the crowd. All of these factors coming together help to make Wiemann one of the leading suppliers of Wardrobes in Europe.

Wiemann also make great use of their range of accessories and add-ons to help make your wardrobe even more stylish and useful to you. Wiemann say they will turn a bedroom into a “haven of ordered tranquillity”, and it’s easy to see why. Handy add-ons such as self-closing doors and racks for your ties, trousers and socks are all available to purchase. Wiemann Wardrobes also give you a choice when it comes to the LED down-lighting above the doors.

Wiemann Berlin

One massive benefit to note when buying a Wiemann wardrobe is that the cost you pay includes Wiemann’s tailor-made home delivery service. Both the delivery and build of your wardrobe is covered in the cost. All you need to do is sit back and relax as your dream wardrobe is installed in the room of your choice!

Everything you need to know about: Ottoman Furniture

Chelsea Ottoman Bed

History of Ottoman Furniture 

The history of Ottoman furniture is as rich and varied as the Ottoman Empire itself. The Empire, which lasted just over 700 years before crumbling after the First World War. As you’d expect, with an empire that lasted for so long and spanned so much of Eastern Europe, Northern Africa and the Middle East, many of the cultural remnants can still be found throughout modern civilisation.

Cultural artefacts such as language, religion, architecture, food recipes, art, and fashion are all items which have survived the death of the once great Ottoman Empire. However, something which has not only survived, but has also spread itself across western culture and even assimilated itself more prominently than any of these things is the furniture of the time.

Ottoman styles of furniture was a name traditionally given to wooden chests or boxes which would be used as chairs, footstools and benches, as well as doubling up as a way of storing things. These wooden pieces of furniture would be upholstered and padded, in order to make them comfortable to sit on. A lot may have changed in the world since the 14th century but we still share the need for comfort with our distant ancestors!

Ottoman furniture is believed to have begun being exported from the Ottoman Empire more commonly at around the 18th century, when it started to make its way into French and English homes. At around this time, it would have likely only been the higher, more affluent classes in society which would have been able to afford such luxuries.

It is for this reason that, while Ottoman furniture is now much more widely affordable, it still retains a certain aura of luxury and class. It’s not difficult to imagine Ottoman furniture gracing the castles and stately homes of high society types a few centuries ago.

Katherine Ottoman Bed

Ottoman Furniture today

Nowadays, Ottoman furniture is extremely popular. Its versatility means it can fit in to just about any surroundings and still look fantastic. Also setting it apart from much of the competition is its practicality.

Storage space is becoming harder and harder to find in this day and age. We have more ‘stuff’ than ever. Today’s human beings are experts at acquiring things they don’t need,  resulting in almost every single one of us suffering from a lot of unnecessary clutter around the house.

It’s no wonder then that Ottoman furniture, a discreet and subtle storage solution, is so popular in the 21st century.  Most commonly now, Ottomans come in the form of beds. Beautifully designed and upholstered beds with a wealth of storage space underneath the mattress.

These inexpensive items are a fantastic way of adding charm to the room as well as tactfully hiding away your clothes or clutter. These are especially excellent solutions for kid’s bedrooms, which as any parent knows, can be a minefield of toys and playthings.

The advantages of an Ottoman bed are clear and it really is no surprise that these are some of the most popular items in our showroom and on our website. They look great, provide an excellent storage solution and exude elegance, class and sophistication.

As ever, Modish Furnishing are proud to be leading the way when it comes to the best in luxury furniture items. We have an impressive selection of Ottoman beds on our website, as well as several on display in our showroom.

Why You NEED Kylie Minogue’s At Home Collection

Kylie Minogue is one of the greatest and most iconic singers ever to grace the stage. Throughout the history of the music industry, few can match her achievements. Even fewer can claim to have the type of fan base she has managed to amass after almost three decades in the industry.

Kylie’s star power is such that she has now transcended the music industry and gone beyond the superstar singer that many see her as. There’s little doubt that the Kylie Minogue name, as well as her input, would bless just about any industry, and her At Home Collections of soft linens, bedding, curtains and cushions is no exception.

Eva Oyster Bedding by Kylie Minogue

If you haven’t heard of Kylie Minogue’s At Home Collection, we’ve compiled a few reasons why it’s time to sit up and take notice!

Kylie Minogue’s At Home Collection Ooze Glamour

I mean, would you really expect anything else from one of the most glamourous singers in the modern era? Kylie Minogue is famed for her outstanding taste and enviable style, and this most definitely comes across in her At Home Collections.

Kylie Minogue is actually directly involved Kylie Minogue’s At Home Collections

A great many celebrities lend their name to products in order to help boost the appeal of both themselves and the product. Singers, celebrities and sportspeople often release clothing lines, fragrances and other items but have very little influence in the decision making process when it comes to the product.

Can you really imagine One Direction sitting around, for example, and helping to mix the various fragrances in order to come up with the perfume they released?

With the Kylie Minogue At Home Collections, however, you can be sure that Kylie Minogue herself is directly involved with the design process. Each item has been designed and created with her input and influence.

You can see this in each design, as Kylie Minogue’s tastes and stylistic value shine through in each of the different Kylie Minogue at Home collections, from the bedlinens to the curtains.

Celeste bedding by Kylie Minogue

Luxury is a given with Kylie Minogue’s At Home Collections

One thing Kylie Minogue wanted to do when creating this new branch of her brand was to bring a touch of the celebrity luxury and lifestyle to the general public. The type of elegance and charm you’d normally see in magazines, brochures or Instagram.

You may not think your current bed sheets are Instagram-worthy, but wait until you bless your bedroom with some of Kylie Minogue’s At Home Collectons of Bedlinens… the likes will roll in! Other bedlinens simply can’t compete.

From striking, eye catching designs, to more elegant and refined statements of style, the scope of the Kylie Minogue At Home Collections are unmatched. There’s something for everyone, no matter your idea of what looks good!

The Kylie Minogue At Home Curtains are Devine

I will hold my hands up, be completely honest and admit that in the 25 years I’ve lived on this earth I have never once been excited about a set of curtains. This admission might not be all that shocking, it’s only curtains, after all; ideal for keeping out the morning sun and hiding your business from nosey neighbours or passers-by.

However, my attitude has changed since seeing Kylie Minogue’s range of curtains from the at home collection. Most notably the Iliana Praline curtains which are currently featured in our showroom.

Iliana Praline Curtains by Kylie Minogue

The sheer beauty and elegance of these curtains is inescapable when you see them up close and personal. Their most striking feature, though, is how they feel. I’ve never come into contact with something so soft to the touch. This might not exactly the first thing you look for when purchasing new curtains for your home, but hey, it’s got to count for something?!

Kylie Minogue’s At Home Collections are Affordable

It has been my long-standing view that luxury usually comes at an extravagant cost. Kylie Minogue has shattered that idea though, and considering the high quality and level of class of these products, you’ll find reasonable prices throughout the ranges.

Dine Differently

Victory Dining Table

I went out for dinner in Glasgow last night. I had a lovely meal. I don’t get out for dinner very often, but when I do, I make sure I go somewhere interesting. I do all the research, read all the reviews and trawl through the Instagram archives. Making sure I have the highest quality dining experience is essential.

Experience is the key word here. A dining experience isn’t all about the food on offer, although obviously that’s a big help! No, a dining experience means the full shebang: absolutely everything that’s involved around the act of you enjoying your meal.

That’s the ambiance of the room, the tranquility of the environment, the quality of service, the location, the noise, the decor, the company, the dining table.

It’s the dining table which is at the heart of the entire experience. The dining table is equivalent to foundations of the house. Start from there, build up and around and eventually you’ll have the complete package: the whole dining experience.

At Modish Furnishing we place a great deal of importance and emphasis on the dining table. Some will say it’s just a table, but to us it’s a whole lot more. As well as helping to create the feel of your entire dining experience, it will most likely be the focal point of the dining room; a key area in your home.

Moon Dining Table

The dining table is where the family will gather to discuss their problems, talk about their days and spend quality time with one another. It’s where disagreements will be discussed, and hopefully resolved. It’s where relationships will be built, friendships solidified and differences of opinion will be debated.

Your experiences at your dining table, alongside your friends and family, will be unique to you. So your dining table should be something unique too. It should light up a room. Inspire conversation; perhaps even debate.  Quite simply, it should make your home a better place.

At Modish Furnishing, when picking out our next selection of dining tables, we’ve taken all of this into account. We’ve chosen dining tables which are one of a kind. Dining tables which you won’t find anywhere else. No one wants to be asked to dinner at a friend’s house and see the exact same dining table at their house.

Modish Furnishing’s distinctive range of dining tables comes in a variety of different sizes, styles and finishes. From luxurious and unmatchable marble tops to ultra-modern dining tables with a sleek glass top, there’s something for all tastes.

Elba Dining Table

Matching the feel of your home is another crucial factor to consider when choosing your new dining table; a contemporary glass-top dining table with unconventional stainless-steel legs probably won’t match up in a classical style of home. Equally, a home filled with ultra-modern furnishings may not suit an oak-wood table dining table.

That’s why we make sure we have all manner of styles of all the furniture we stock. This ensures that no matter the feel of your home, you’ll find something that will fit right in and work within your home environment.

Nothing is more important to us than the satisfaction of the customer. We strive to bring our customers the best, the latest and the most interesting products. And with the latest selection of dining tables that have become available… we really do believe we’re succeeding in bringing the most interesting dining tables to Glasgow.

Espresso Dining Table

Our Glasgow showroom is home to a small but impressive selection of dining tables, but our online store and our social media channels are where you’ll find the majority of what we are able to bring you. Our social media channels are especially good places to see the very best and most notable of what Modish Furnishing can offer.

As ever, you’re more than welcome down at Modish HQ (82 Seaward Street Glasgow, G41 1HJ) to browse our ranges and talk to the experts. Likewise, if you see something online you like and would want more information, you can pop down or give us a call and tell you all you need to know, helping you to make an informed and sensible decision.

The tables featured in this blog are from a brand new supplier, and as such aren’t yet available on our website, please call us on 0141 429 3541 if you are interested in any of these tables.

An introduction to Mattress5

Everyone is different. We all have varying tastes, interests and preferences. There are, however some things in life which unite us. One such thing, as we’ve noticed down here at Modish Furnishing, is the humble mattress!  And here to bring us closer together and deliver a comfy and cosy sleep to our customers in Glasgow and throughout Scotland is our new partner: Mattress5!

Many people believe that stepping up the firmness of a mattress means giving up comfort, but this is certainly not the case when it comes to Mattress5. While this mattress is rated as a ‘medium/firm’ – the pocketed spring system that makes it up is topped with a generous layer of hypoallergenic comfort, which will guide you off to sleep in a gentle, relaxing manner.

Not too hard, not too soft: Firm But Fair.

What are the benefits of Pocket Sprung Mattresses?

There’s nothing more important than getting a good night’s sleep. It allows you to shake off the hardships of the day before and unwind. Giving your body that much needed rest it needs to perform throughout the following day. Having spent years selling mattresses in Glasgow, we know a thing or two about the best type of mattress, and how to get the best night’s sleep!

Unfortunately, many people suffer from a poor night’s sleep. With the quality of their mattress coming in high on the list of causes. This is why we’re delving deeper into the complicated and confusing world of mattresses in this series of blogs.

Last week we looked at the advantages of memory foam mattresses, which you can read here… and this week we’ll be taking a closer look at the memory foam mattress’ arch nemesis, the traditional, pocket-spring mattress.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Last Longer

When you purchase a top-quality pocket spring mattress, with a high spring count – you’re getting a mattress that can go the distance. By maintaining the mattress well and regularly flipping, you will easily be able to get up to 10 years out of it without noticing any sag. This is in contrast to memory foam, which by its very nature will unfortunately suffer from sag over time.

Memory foam mattresses have a great deal of benefits, but longevity isn’t one of them. Opting for a pocket spring mattress will future proof you and save you having to worry about the inconvenience of buying a new mattress again for a while!

Pocket Spring Mattresses Utilise Independent Springs

This may seem like an obvious point. However, it is one of great importance -especially for couples! Having springs independent of one another means that two people sleeping on either side of the mattress are using different springs. Independent springs, therefore, means one person not affecting the other’s side of the bed.

In open coil mattresses, if one person is heavier than the other, then the lighter person will end up rolling towards the middle of the bed. Likewise with memory foam. Once one person has their ‘groove’ moulded into the memory foam mattress, there’s no room for manoeuvre. This means memory foam mattresses could prove problematic for some couples.

Pocket spring mattresses are a great choice for people who struggle to get a good night’s rest while sharing a bed. Couples with differing weights and support requirements should consider a pocket spring mattress.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Offer Great Support

Mattresses with high pocket spring counts are able to offer an incredible amount of support. As the pocket spring count goes up, the mattress becomes more firm. This allows the weight of the body to be distributed over a greater number of pocket springs.

This allows you to carefully select the level of firmness which is best for you. Some people prefer firm mattresses and others prefer soft; some people require a certain kind of mattress to aid them with various issues such as back or joint pain.

As your weight is distributed over each of the springs, the mattress will completely support your body. This allows the body to fully relax giving you a great night’s rest.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Feel More Luxurious

This may seem like more of a subjective point and something that comes down to each person’s own personal preference. However, we believe there is no greater feeling than a pocket spring mattress of the right firmness packed with a dense mixture of natural materials. We recommend lamb’s wool for extra comfort!

This is a feeling that a memory foam mattress just can’t replicate with its man-made, synthetic mix of lab-produced foam.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Aren’t Warm

If, like me, you prefer to sleep in a cool environment, then a pocket spring mattress is the choice for you. Memory foam mattresses are well-known for the heat they give off and can leave you tossing and turning through the night. No one likes kicking the duvet off and on, just to escape the horrors of a sweltering hot night’s sleep.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Don’t Smell

Ok, you might be wondering what on earth we’re talking about, but if you’ve ever owned a memory foam mattress you’ll completely understand!

Memory foam mattresses unfortunately come with a very distinct smell due to the synthetic foam and the chemicals used to create it. The smell doesn’t last forever but will be around for a few weeks or so and isn’t the most pleasant fragrance.

Pocket spring mattresses don’t suffer with this issue. So in this case we give this point as a win for the mattresses with pocket springs!
