Choosing The Right Mattress For You

With the onset of spring comes a few renovations due to the fact several sets of company will visit over summer. This year the guest bedroom has under gone a transformation.

The closet has been made bigger, the walls have been painted and a new rug installed. The old mattress has been discarded in favor of a new one.

Now purchasing a new mattress may seem like an easy thing to do but certain things must be taken into account. You don’t want to purchase the wrong one and have to replace it again in a few years.

Mattresses last approximately 8 to 10 years, however you can with the proper care increase it’s life expectancy and get up to 12 years of use.

How? First keep it clean, a mattress protector can help they are inexpensive and can be easily removed for cleaning. Rotate your mattress every 3 months.

You can rotate it end to end, this will provide uniform wear. Also on a yearly basis you can turn the mattress over, keep in mind you cannot turn a pillow top mattress over.

Vacuuming your mattress can also help keep it clean it’s a good idea to to do this each time you rotate it just use the upholstery brush on your vacuum.

It is important when purchasing a mattress to factor in a few things, such as the weight and age of the user. This will help when choosing the firmness of the new mattress.

Don’t be sucked in to thinking a pillow top mattress is best, these can cost a lot more. Good quality mattresses are available with out, and you can certainly add a topper at a later date if you wish.

Memory foam mattresses are all the rage for now, memory foam softens as it reacts to the bodies heat, thus allowing it to mold to your bodies shape.

This mattress helps alleviate back and neck pain for many users. Another advantage of memory foam mattresses are the fact they are anti microbial and therefore resist dust mites.

Gel mattresses, contain gel in the products support system, the gel is added to the foam using different types of technology. This mattress offers consumers comfort and heat dissipation.

Latex mattresses, these mattresses use latex foam as the support system. Latex can be made from petroleum or, plant based materials which is good for the environment.

Last but not least the innerspring mattress, these use a steel coil system. The innerspring is covered by padding or upholstery, including foam, fiber and even additional smaller steel springs.

While there are a wide variety of mattresses available on today’s market look for one that fits your budget and at the same time fills most of your needs.

Quilts, Bedspreads, Comforters and Duvets

Quilts, The origins of quilting remain unknown, what we do know however is that quilting was used to cover furniture and make clothing as well as covers for beds.

Quilts were made by sandwiching a decorated top with a filler in the middle and plain material for it’s bottom. They were extremely warm and wore very well.

During difficult times when material and money were hard to come by, the art of patchwork quilts was born. The women gathered all types of scrap material and joined them together to form a quilt.

From these humble beginnings, came some of the most beautiful quilts ever made. Millions of people still adorn their beds with quilts, while some are new others are family heirlooms.

Bedspreads, Bedspreads come in a multitude of designs along with a wide variety of colors. Bedspreads can be made from just about any material with choices to fit any decor.

They are very durable and with care can last many years. They are almost always made using washable material,s which make them easy to clean.

Their tightly woven fabric is not easy to tear and very lightweight so you can even use your bedspread in the summer as well as during a mild winter.

Comforters, To begin with comforters are similar to a quilt in some ways. They are thick like a quilt and often quilted, but the material used is often dyed and rarely embroidered.

Comforters may be filled with layers of polyester batting, wool or silk. This is secured inside the comforter to ensure it is kept evenly distributed.

When it comes to children the comforter is a popular choice. It is not only lightweight but very warm, it’s easy for children to make up their bed, by simply giving it a shake.

Duvets, Duvets are by far the most popular bed covering in this modern age. Duvets are filled with down, feathers or a synthetic fiber and used as a blanket as well as a bed topper.

The duvet is like a zippered bag, filled with the filler then protected by a removable cover. These covers come in a multitude of fabrics and designs.

When it comes to warmth you would find a duvet is very hard to beat. Especially if it’s filled with down or feathers. Plus, you can conveniently change the looks by simply changing the duvet cover.

But whether you choose a quilt, bedspread, comforter or duvet, as long as you are warm and comfortable then rest assured it’s the right choice for you.

Rollaway Beds vs Sofa Beds

When comparing different types of beds it must be taken into account that certain beds are useful for different reasons. I will compare the rollaway bed and the sofa bed.

rollaway bed folded upRollaway beds are one of the most useful and convenient beds available on the market today. They are built with strength and durability in mind.

Rollaway beds come in many sizes and models, and with various prices to choose from. The typical rollaway bed comes with a mattress “with or without a pillow top” and is extremely easy to fold and unfold.

The casters are made of very hard wearing and long lasting material and glide easily across your floors. The casters also have a locking mechanism for added stability.

These rollaway beds are very easy to store and take up a surprisingly small amount of storage space. In fact they can be kept in a closet and some you can even store under a regular bed.

The frames are made of strong lightweight, long lasting, hard wearing steel, that helps support the mattress for added stability. When it comes to manoeuvrability, even a child could manage this bed. Rollaway beds are definitely as comfortable as a regular bed and very easy to set up.

So the rollaway is perfect for people who live in small apartments or do not have an extra room. As they take up very little space and are the perfect sleeping accommodation for guests of all sizes. In fact some people believe they are just as comfortable if not more than some regular beds.

You must consider all the pros and cons before purchasing a bed for your guest. Rollaway beds or sofa beds – the choice is up to you. Which ever you choose I’m sure it will be the right choice for your space as well as your guest.

What About Sofa Beds? Are They Better Than Rollaway Beds?

blue sofa bedThe sofa bed, also known as a hide-a-bed is typically a couch which has it’s seating cushions, a metal frame and thin mattress underneath. This can be unfolded or opened up to make a bed.

Sofa beds can be found not just in many styles, but many sizes as well.

They range from cot sized beds to queen size as well. Almost all sofa beds contain the standard bar and canvas mechanism seen for years, however a few new lines can be found with alternative mechanisms.

Leonard C Bailey took out a patent for making the first “Folding Bed” on the 18th of July 1899. The metal bed frame was capable of being folded, with a bent mattress closed for use if needed. Later it became to be known as a hide a bed or sofa bed. Rollaway beds fold up as well.

These beds fit well in formal settings like the living room, as well as a guest room or even in a child’s room. They are available in rich coloured upholstery, dark wood and firm cushions.

They are perfect for small to medium apartments or condos. The design is mainly favouring function and comfort. These types of beds are an added bonus for mobile homes or cottages, as the couch serves a duel purpose with seating during the day and a comfortable sleeping area at night.

So if you are in the market for an extra bed and need to furnish your small to medium space you can not go wrong with a sofa bed or a rollaway bed, the choice is yours.

In any case, let me show you a couple of the best alternatives to bunk-beds!

Furniture of America Daybed with Trundle Bed

daybed-with-trundleThis shapely daybed (just a term, obviously its good for night too!) includes a trundle. It looks fantastic, and even better, it is super budget friendly. It’s actually kind of shocking how cheap this trundle bed is.

It is about 40 inches across, and the length is about 79 inches. So rest assured most everyone can use it comfortably.

The Tokyo Metal Frame Daybed and Trundle

metal-trundle-bedRather than use wood, this stylish and cheap trundle bed utilizes a metal frame. It looks fantastic as you can see. Sort of blending a rustic look with Asian tones, the price is really good. It is available from Amazon for just over 200 dollars, and includes free shipping at the time I wrote this.

Obviously it comes with a roll out trundle, and it fits two standard twin size mattresses. Sadly, they need to be purchased separately. Still, it is a great model!

Full Bed With Trundle by Poundex

trundle-bed-2Poundex makes a great wood and faux leather trundle bed. This just so happens to be it! A little more expensive than the other two models we covered above, it is nonetheless worth every penny.

The upper mattress should be about an 8 inch thick variety, and on the trundle portion a 6 inch mattress fits perfectly. This pretty standard for trundle beds.
