Why You Need a Mattress Platform 1024 768 SAMCRO

Why You Need a Mattress Platform

Growing up in South Texas, it was no big deal to see a mattress set on the floor. In many cultures, sleeping on a simple mattress or sleeping mat on the floor is standard practice. After all, it IS a flat, stable foundation for your mattress. After spending money on a mattress it may also seem like an unnecessary expense to purchase a bed frame and box spring as well. However, there is also a reason why beds, box springs, and foundations are part of the sleeping experience. Whether or not putting your mattress on the floor is a good idea depends on a few different things, including the type of mattress, type of flooring, and the climate you live in.

Climate

Living in Corpus Christi by the beach, anyone who has lived here is familiar with the crazy humidity and heat in our area. At night, sweat and heat released from your body can get trapped in the mattress. It’s also worth keeping in mind that foam and even coil mattresses need to breathe which is why your foundation choice is equally important. When your mattress is on the floor, moisture is retained; combined with the lack of light, it creates the perfect breeding ground for mold. Older hardwood or carpeted floors may also contain mold spores that can spread to your mattress.

Mobility

Another thing to consider: getting out of bed is more difficult when your mattress rests on the floor. People with mobility issues or that suffer from back pain may strain their muscles and joints by pulling themselves to their feet each morning. Plus, sleeping on the floor increases the chance that you’ll lose your balance, or possibly even fall getting up.

Cleanliness

Sleeping on the floor also puts you closer to dust or dirt that naturally accumulates on the floor. Even if you are meticulous with your cleaning, you may find you end up breathing in more dirt and dust. Insects such as scorpions, fleas, and roaches are also more likely to be on the ground and can more easily make their way into your bed. Snakes are also a possibility for the area and may look for a place to hide (such as between a mattress and the wall). By keeping your area clean and clutter-free along with raising your bed, you can better avoid cuddling with a creepy-crawly you’d rather not get close to.

Depending on the manufacturer, in some instances without proper base support, some of these mattresses may have their warranty voided. The staff at BoxDrop Corpus Christi can advise you on the proper maintenance of your mattress and more. Call us at (361) 876-4445 to schedule a consultation; Tuesdays are by appointment only, or stop in for a visit during regular business hours Monday, Wednesday – Sunday at see us at 1251 Nile Drive, Corpus Christi, Texas.

How to choose your mattress thickness

If you’ve done your research prior to shopping for a mattress, you already know that specifications such as the size, material type, and foundation can have a great impact on the quality of your sleep. Did you also know that mattress thickness can also be an important factor? If you buy a mattress with a foundation layer of only 3 or 4 inches out of a total of 10 inches, then it’s probably not going to last very long. Insufficient foundational support often leads to sagging within a couple of years. Thicker mattresses, especially those with a thicker base, tend to enjoy a longer life and have longer warranties.

Consider the layers

Mattresses usually have between two to five layers; together, these layers come together to perform specific functions. The top 1-2 layers form the comfort layers and are where most of the initial feeling of your mattress comes from. These layers are responsible for features such as cooling and reducing motion transfer. The middle, or support layer, provides a balance of flexibility and rigidity to support proper spinal alignment. Finally, the foundation layer plays a major role in compression support for heavier sleepers as well as making the mattress durable.

Suggestions by weight

People weighing 225 pounds or less should expect to sleep comfortably on a 9-inch mattress for the expected lifespan of the mattress. People weighing between 225 and 275 pounds will find that a thicker mattress meets their needs better and that a 10-inch mattress is more suitable. People weighing in excess of 275 pounds may wish to consider a 12-inch mattress or up to ensure their continued comfort.

Pros and cons

A thicker mattress, especially in the foundation layer, will ensure a mattress will take your weight without compressing or sagging. Conversely, a thicker mattress will come with its own drawbacks. A 12″ queen size memory foam mattress can often weigh 100 pounds more if there are springs inside the mattress which can cause problems if your chosen bed frame is not suitable. A too-tall bed can be problematic for a user with mobility problems. Thicker mattresses tend to be pricier because they need more materials to make a bigger comfort layer and a thicker foundation. Lastly, thicker mattresses tend to require deeper or specialized bedding rather than just any random set of sheets.

Some of the basic considerations when deciding what mattress thickness is right for you:

  • Will you be sharing the bed with someone else?

  • Do you have a heavier body?

  • How long is an acceptable warranty?

It is also worth noting that not all mattresses have to be extra thick to meet your needs. For example, when comparing a foam vs. spring mattress, the latter can be thinner while still providing great support and durability. The staff at BoxDrop Corpus Christi has over a decade of experience in the business and can help find the perfect mattress for you with their many options.  Call us at 361-876-4445 to set up a mattress consultation appointment or visit us at 1251 Nile Drive, Corpus Christi, Texas.

Deciding to Invest in an Adjustable Bed 1024 576 SAMCRO

Deciding to Invest in an Adjustable Bed

Adjustable beds have grown in popularity over the last few years thanks to a rise in selection and affordability in the regular market. They give users the ability to adjust to a range of different positions, which allows for maximum comfort while sleeping and can provide health benefits such as improved circulation and pain relief. Though long associated with hospital beds, newer adjustable beds can even include luxurious features like massagers and can be enjoyed by anyone.

Benefits of an adjustable bed

If you’ve wondered whether it would be a good idea to invest in an adjustable bed, consider the therapeutic benefits of owning one. People with adjustable beds are generally known to experience improved breathing and blood circulation. For those who suffer from various health problems, adjustable beds offer improved healing while decreasing issues like heartburn, sleep apnea, joint swelling and back pain.

How do you know if an adjustable bed is for you?

Do you typically experience discomfort in your back and shoulders when you wake each morning? An adjustable bed will be able to support you throughout the night with no special effort on your part.
Do you currently sleep with a pillow under or between your knees, or a mountain of pillows beneath your neck and back? If so, an adjustable bed would allow you to assume the position you need for a good night’s rest, without the pillow stacks. Most adjustable beds can be raised in the middle, allowing users to rest with the knees slightly elevated from the rest of the body.
Do you suffer from sleep apnea, snoring, edema, joint pain, or acid reflux? Or perhaps you or a loved one are bedridden? The ability to adjust the level of your head, upper and lower body can help alleviate many of these problems. Someone who is bedridden may adjust themselves, also allowing them to do everyday activities like watch tv, read, work, and any other number of tasks that can’t be done on a flatbed.
An adjustable bed can also offer benefits in terms of comfort. With its flexible base, an adjustable bed allows for a range of luxury and convenience that typical beds simply don’t provide. Among the other unique qualities of adjustable beds are the vibration mechanisms of certain models, which provide soothing, stress-relieving massage. Most adjustable beds can even be raised in the middle, allowing users to rest with the knees slightly elevated from the rest of the body.
BoxDrop Corpus Christi currently offers five different adjustable beds, with two featuring massage options. Prices range from $500 to $2,000, which you might easily spend on a regular bed shopping anywhere else. Because you can’t just pair any old mattress with an adjustable base, call us at (361) 876-4445 to set up a consultation with our friendly staff in-store located at 1251 Nile Drive, Corpus Christi, Texas and let us help get you on your way to your best night’s sleep yet.
