Central Heat and Your Sleep
Do you find it hard during the colder months to find a comfortable setting on your furnace at bedtime? Often times, when we sleep with the furnace on, we wake up through out the night hot and thirsty, feeling for the thermostat on the wall trying to drop the temperature so we can cool off and slip back to sleep. Why is that? We were just so comfortable laying in bed with our favorite fuzzy crazy cat socks and heated blanket binging Law and...more
Back pain: It's not always your mattress to blame
With all the daily wear and tear we put on our bodies why do people still blame the mattress?more
How Custom-Sized Mattresses Fit Into Your Life
By definition, custom mattresses can be hard to come by. Most modern, mass-produced mattresses are designed to fit certain dimensions, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But what happens when you find yourself in a square peg/round hole situation? Mattresses haven’t always been so uniform, so it’s likely that you may find yourself in a situation where you need a better sleeping solution than what is offered in the big-box marketplace....more
The Truth About That "FREE" Trial Period On Your Mattress
Mattress Shopping Tips
We're sure you hear enough horror stories about mattress buying, so much so that you attempt to find a store that has a nice long “FREE trial period,” right? Well, you better read the fine print. And yes, I mean read it. Don’t just take the salesperson’s word for it.
You can Google all day long and find stories about people that have shopped for mattresses with long trial periods only to find they are practically stuck with their...more
Computers Telling Us What to Sleep On? Don't Get Me Started!
Mattress Shopping Tips
COMPUTERS ARE TELLING US WHAT IS BEST TO SLEEP ON? DON’T GET ME STARTED... TOO LATE!
Most mattress or sleep shops rely on computers such as Bed Match or Tekscan to tell you what sleep surface you need. With these systems, you lay down on a mat that shows where the pressure points are and then it decides which of the few mattresses sold in that store will best suit your needs. However, you are limited to a select number of options that...more
Spring Cleaning for a Healthier You
We interrupted our series on our mattress education to address something a little more appropriate in the current situation. As COVID-19 spreads, many people are reasonably scared. Everyone is hunkered down and millions of people are staying home. We know that this is a scary time. People are wearing gloves and masks everywhere. Hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies are in limited supply. But in all the chaos the world is still turning, and...more
All Foam is the Same, Right? Mattress Foam Education
All foam is the same, right?
Polyurethane Foam Education 101
WRONG! Not all foam is the same. In fact, not all memory foam is the same, and not all latex foam is the same. This is why some memory foam mattresses cost $200 while others cost over $2,000. Now granted, sometimes it is just a greedy salesman, but normally the difference is in the quality. If you really want to know how to shop for a...more
Travel Sleep Tips
Last week was about having guests in your home. So, this week I wanted to talk about traveling sleep tips. For some people, traveling doesn’t affect your sleep. But for others, it makes it almost impossible to get a good night’s sleep. We all know you can’t really bring your bed with you when you travel. If sleeping in a hotel or guest room is not a pleasant experience, those few nights away from home can seem like an eternity. But there are...more
The In-Laws are Coming. Is Your Guest Room Ready?
The in-laws are coming…
In case you haven’t noticed, the holidays are here. So the question is this — is your guest room ready? With all the commotion of the holidays, the decoration, the presents, the cards, it is all exhausting. The last thing you want to do is think about cleaning the guest room out for the family that is coming to stay. Sometimes you wish they would just stay at a hotel (sometimes it is wiser). But it isn’t always...more
My Mattress Still Looks Good, So Why is it So Uncomfortable?
I get a lot of questions from customers about their mattresses. This is one of the most common. Unfortunately, I don’t usually get this question until after they have called and complained, thinking that something was wrong with their mattress. When I tell them the mattress is structurally sound and nothing is wrong with it, they are usually upset because they “know” something is wrong with it. They are convinced that it must be the mattress....more
The First Step to a Better Night's Sleep
I have been racking my brain to try to figure out where to start my blog, and I decided it is always best to start at the beginning. So like I do with every customer I greet, I will begin with the basics. When you are shopping for a mattress the first question is:
What are you looking for?
I know this sounds pretty self-explanatory. After all, if you walk into a mattress store it is pretty safe to bet that you are looking...more
