It’s a common misconception that everyone should buy the biggest bed that they can afford and have space for. The truth is actually a little more complicated than that, and sometimes, bigger isn’t always better when it comes to choosing a mattress size. Of course, in the end, it all comes down to personal preference. If you feel more comfortable in a big bed or a small bed, then, by all means, you should choose a mattress that fits your personal needs. However, you may find it beneficial to think about the following things before deciding on the size of your bed.Details
While it is not okay to place ordinary mattresses outside, there are a few situations in which having a mattress outside is an attractive idea. Daybeds, Treehouses, outdoor patios, or covered pavilions are cool alternative sitting and lounging choices. The problem is, most mattresses are made of materials that easily absorb moisture. A wet mattress quickly becomes a giant moldy, mildew-covered, fungus ridden sponge and it isn’t just those located near swimming pools.
Although it can be difficult to protect and maintain an outdoor mattress, having access to the luxury of outdoor relaxation that it provides is well worth the effort. Time put into selecting and protecting a your new outdoor retreat that can handle moisture, humidity, and exposure not to mention UV Sunlight can pay off in overall longevity, cleanliness, and safety.Details
One of the biggest questions that mattress owners have is “How often should I replace my mattress?” There are a few commonly cited “rules” in regards to this question, however, they should not be taken as absolute. Some people believe that a mattress should be replaced every eight years, every decade, or even every couple of years. The answer, as with many things relating to sleep, is a mixture of basic guidelines designed to help you figure out your comfort level and personal preference.Details
It’s every dog owner’s dilemma — should I let my dog share the bed me?
There’s no right or wrong answer to this question, in the end, it comes down to your personal preferences and comfort level. There are pros and cons to both sides of the argument, and I’m going to lay them all out on the table to make it easier for you to decide whether or not your furry friend gets to share the mattress.
It’s important to know your preferences and to have an understanding of the personality of your dog before making a decision about whether or not to allow it to sleep in the bed. It can be difficult and confusing for the animal if you change your mind later; it’s easier to set consistent rules than to break an animal’s habits.Details
Stress—we all know that overwhelming feeling that often lingers for way too long. As our list of things to do grows longer, our worries multiply before our eyes, causing our anxiety levels to rise, which leads to us just wanting to hide under the covers forever. This is obviously not possible since we lead busy, fulfilling lives. We don’t have time to let stress get us down! So, what do we do about it? Well, besides meditation, exercise, eating healthy and binge-watching your favorite Netflix show (always brings me joy), there is something else that can really make all the difference—quality sleep. When you neglect your need for rest, your body begins to shut down in protest, causing you to be groggy, cranky and well, stressed!

This is where our organic body pillows come in, the sleeping aid that can relieve all sorts of discomfort, giving you a calming (and stress-free) sleep. Keep reading to see what I mean.Details
Therapedic® – Foundation Talk
We’re going to talk today in terms of comfort support and durability from the Therapedic® foundation. Therapedic is just one of the several brand names that fall under our manufacturer’s production & licensee rights. Our manufacturer is The Bedding Group.
In terms of durability and strength, it used to come from what we once called the box springs. Essentially they were springy shock absorbing platforms designed to support the mattress. However, for the most part they have become a product of the past. Industry wide, box foundations have become the primarily replacement support base.
The Bedding Group has been a big promoter of these foundations rather than box springs for a long. Box springs are notorious for changing and giving inconsistent support to your mattress over time and you never know what they are going to do, which makes them very unpredictable at best. In the case of foundations you always know what you have. A foundation is a solid ridged base that it is going to be extremely supportive, durable, and will give you many years of consistent dependable service.
