A Guide to Mattress Lingo

Do you feel like you have entered a foreign country when shopping at a mattress sale? If so, then this guide to mattress buying lingo will help you find a bed that suits your needs. 


One of the most used words pertaining to a mattress, a coil is a spring that resists against your body weight, which allows the mattress to keep you supported when you lie down for the night. A coil configuration refers to the manner in which the coils are arranged. Some nicer mattresses will have coils that are wrapped individually so your partner isn’t bothered when you toss and turn in your sleep. 


This term might seem pretty straightforward, but it is very important when it comes to configuring a comfortable bed. In mattress terms, this word refers to the amount of resistance it puts onto you, which will change the way the bed feels. A bed that is not too firm will be ideal for people who prefer less resistance. Make sure to ask the sales person about firmness when looking for your next mattress. 

Pillow Top

For people who do not like hard beds, a pillow top gives you an extra layer of padding to turn any bed or futon into a soft sleeping oasis. With the added layer at the top of the mattress, your bed will also give you more support so you can get a great night’s sleep. You are sure to wake up each morning feeling refreshed and well rested with a pillow top mattress.

How to Arrange Living Room Furniture

When deciding how to set up your living room furniture, make sure to think about the traffic pattern for the room, where the doors are, and the size. Figure out if you can make two or three seating areas, or if the room is too small for that. If your dining room flows into the living room, then put the living room furniture and the dining room furniture into separate groupings. Place the couch where you can see out into the whole room, and balance it with chests and tables.

Essential Steps to Take Before Buying Kids’ Furniture

Whether you’re furnishing a new home or simply upgrading your kids’ rooms, there are a few important steps to take that will help the process of selecting and buying go more smoothly. Bunk beds can be a great option for kids. They’re good for economy of space, but they’re great in larger rooms as well.

 1.      Decide on the amount of vertical space you have available.

Before you go to buy your bunk beds or any type of bed or mattress, the first thing to do is to measure the space you have to work with. You should confirm that there will be at least two feet from the top of the bunk bed to the ceiling, so your child doesn’t bump his or her head. Most bunk beds are between 5 ½ to 6 feet tall, so if your ceiling is lower than 8 feet, you may need to look around for a shorter bunk bed.

 2.      Measure the amount of available floor space.

How much floor space you’ll need depends on the type of bunk bed. Although the width is generally the same as a twin-sized mattress, if there are drawers that slide out or other moving parts, you’ll need to factor in a few more feet.

 3.      Decide on a style: basic or lofted?

There are many different types of bunk beds on the market offering a range of styles and options. The traditional twin-over-twin style is common, but twin-over-full is also a popular style. These are “basic” bunk beds. The other broad category of bunk beds is the lofted style, which could have a futon below it, or a desk. Some bunk beds have a third trundle bed that slides out. 

Consider how much storage space you need. Lofted bunk beds may be a good option as things can be kept under them, or you can choose a bunk bed that has sliding drawers. If your child likes to have friends over for sleepovers, you may want to forgo the storage space in favor of a futon or a pull-out trundle bed. In a small room with limited space, you may want to put a study area under a lofted bed. If your child is young, make sure that the bed has sturdy guardrails. 

If you’re looking for bunk beds or any type of mattress, Mancini’s Sleepworld has the right one for you. Once you decide on the style and size of your bed, come check out our excellent selection of beds and mattresses. For more information, visit us on the Web or call us at (800) 641-5337.
