"Bed in a box mattresses", You've definitely seen them advertised online, but do you really know what makes it a bed in a box mattress, or if you would even like it. The first thing to make clear is that just because a mattress comes in a box doesn't mean it's flimsier, worse, cheaper, or lower quality than a mattress that you would buy at a store. People often have the perception that because it comes compressed, rolled up, and stuffed into a box it's going to be lower quality, but that's the beauty of memory foam.
Why does memory foam density matter? Is a softer memory foam better or would you prefer sleeping on the harder stuff? There are a lot of questions surrounding memory foam, but the only way you can know what mattress will work best for you is if you know exactly what you're putting your body on at night.
Hybrid mattresses are pretty new to the game. For years customers only had one option, spring mattresses came in all sorts of shapes and sizes and models. Then, in 1992 Tempur-Pedic launched the first memory foam mattress. Over the years memory foam has gained a reputation for its hefty price tag and retaining heat. However, with the advent of new technology, the mattresses have stayed cooler and the prices have dropped. It all seemed like we were perfecting the ideal mattress, and getting dang close too, until the Hybrid mattress came into existence. Blending the best of pocket-coil spring mattresses and memory foam mattresses you get one mattress that is truly a game changer.
Memory Foam mattresses have become quite a popular staple in the home in recent years. This is in large part due to the price reduction that has taken part within the industry. This has made these once incredibly expensive mattresses affordable to a much wider demographic. You can now get a memory foam mattress, delivered to your door, within a few days for under $1,000. So, this begs the question, what's the big deal about memory foam, and what makes sleeping on it different than a normal mattress?
We've all been there, staring in the face of two mattresses, one softer and one firmer; they both felt comfortable in the 5 minutes you've spent laying on them, but which one is actually going to feel great when you wake up at 3:30 AM and can't fall back asleep. This presents a problem for many shoppers as a mattress is typically something that you don't buy more than every 5-10 years. The biggest decision that any new shopper will have to make is whether to buy a firm or a soft mattress, so do your research.
We've all experienced those days; you've gone to bed early (or on time) for the first time in a while, you didn't have to wake up to an alarm, and you feel like a million bucks. It's common knowledge that adequate sleep helps you feel better, but there are so many more added benefits to sleeping than meets the eye.
