Mattresses have come a long way from leaves and animal skins to memory foam and cooling gel technology. We’re spoiled for choice today, and while that’s a great thing, it can make choosing a mattress pretty tricky and somewhat frustrating. How do you know which one is the best for you? How do you compare them all? Fortunately, along with this wealth of options has come an innovative way of shipping mattresses – in a box. You go online, do a little comparison shopping, and place your order. It’s really that simple. Consumer Reports tested 41 such mattresses for various factors like support, firmness, bounciness, wear-and-tear and pressure point relief. According to Chris Regan, Mattress Expert of Consumer Reports, bed-in-boxes scored top marks in the ratings. Technology to make these mattresses and the quality of the materials used are much superior to years ago.
Benefits Of A Bed-In-A-Box
1. Easy Purchase And Delivery
Dealing with pushy salespeople, trying out different mattresses to the point of exhaustion, having to settle for a second choice because of limited stock – these are the hallmarks of mattress-shopping the traditional way. Getting it online, on the other hand, does away with all these issues as it’s an easy process. It also saves you money as you don’t need to pay delivery costs which will push up the overall price of your purchase. A boxed mattress is compressed and vacuum sealed into a container. You can easily get it into your house and your bedroom without additional help.
2. It Costs Less
Boxed mattresses are typically cheaper than traditional ones because the companies don’t have to pay for the cost of brick-and-mortar stores. They also don’t have to employ as many staff. If you’re looking to cut costs on a mattress but still want the best, you can find terrific choices with a boxed bed.
3. It’s As Comfortable As They Come
Boxed mattresses are as comfortable as traditional models, if not more. They’re made of special foams including, but not necessarily, memory foam, which is known to sleep hot. However, but mattress companies have found a clever way to deal with this – by including cooling layers that keep body temperature down by dispersing heat instead of absorbing it. The result is comfortable, restful sleep through the night.
4. It’s Easy To Set Up
Once a boxed mattress is delivered to your door, it’s just a matter of taking it into your bedroom, removing it from the box, and letting it unfurl, which only takes a few minutes. You can use a foundation, a box spring or the floor to support the mattress. You can read the manufacturer’s recommendations for any specifications.
5. It Lasts Long
Boxed mattresses can last as long as their traditional counterparts. Depending on the brand, they may last for 10 years or may even have a lifetime guarantee. The fact is, these modern mattresses are designed to be durable so that you get the most use out of them.
7. You Can Enjoy Long Trial Periods At No Risk
Buying a mattress at a physical store gives you a few minutes chance to test it for yourself. This way, it’s impossible to know which one is comfortable for you and which isn’t. Makers of boxed mattresses have found a way to provide customers with a much better experience. They offer trial periods that can extend to 100 days, which is ample time to see how a mattress lives up to expectations. If you don’t like it, you can return it within the trial period, and the customer service staff will schedule a pick-up and 100% refund on your purchase. Traditional mattress companies, on the other hand, don’t provide such long trial periods.
One such bed-in-a-box is Nuvanna, the brainchild of an industry expert with more than two decades’ experience. It comprises three layers that all work to provide better sleep. The top layer uses phase-changing cooling gel technology that draws away body heat and disperses it so that you sleep cool. The second layer prevents motion transference so that you and your partner don’t disturb each other with your movements. The bottom layer provides support to different parts of your body and prevents it from sinking in which in turn prevents back pain. Nuvanna caters to different body sizes, weights, and sleeping positions so that everyone can enjoy better rest and better health.
There’s a growing trend for boxed mattresses. Sales have almost quadrupled since 2015, which is an indication that this innovative mode of distribution is steadily becoming the way to go. If you’re looking to buy a mattress but dislike having to visit different stores, compare products and spend a small fortune, consider a bed-in-a-box. It’s convenient, affordable and gives terrific value for money.
When I had neck and back problems I slept on our guest bedroom mattress and loved it so much we replaced our sleepnumber bed with a Nuvanna mattress. They are amazing! I recommend them to everyone!
