Basic Mattress Vocabulary

Mattress 1

 

 

 

 

 

Are you planning to replace your mattress in the near future?  Ensure that you go home with the most optimal mattress for your sleeping needs by familiarizing yourself with this vital mattress vocabulary:

Foundation:  A good foundation, or box springs, is an essential component of a mattress. Absorbing a lot of nightly wear and tear, it is important to purchase new box springs when buying a new mattress.

Adjustable beds:  Adjustable beds are electronic beds that allow you to adjust the head and foot of the mattress for optimal comfort.

Innerspring:  An innerspring mattress is the most commonly purchased type of mattress and contains built-in coil springs.

Airbeds:  Unlike the steel coils of an innerspring, airbeds offer an air-filled core to suit a variety of sleeping needs.

Memory foam:  Memory foam is five times denser than typical foam and can easily conform to any shape and then quickly return to its original form.

How Mattresses Have Evolved Over Time

Mattresses

 

 

 

 

 

Mattresses are among the many luxuries that people tend to take for granted in today’s hectic and bustling society. However, our favorite sleeping spots are much more accommodating than those our ancestors slept on. Keep reading to find out how mattresses have evolved over time.

Neolithic Period – Renaissance

The earliest known version of a mattress dates back 10,000 years, to the Neolithic period. Theseoriginal beds were very primitive, and it was not until 3400 BC that Egyptians started sleeping on raised platforms. At this point, however, commoners still slept on heaps of palm bows. The Roman Empire saw the earliest luxury beds, which were composed of hay, wool, feathers, or reeds, and were typically decorated in gold or silver. During the Renaissance, mattresses were made of silks and velvets filled with straw, pea shucks, and feathers.

16th Century 

Louis XIV was a lounging enthusiast and was said to have owned 413 beds; he particularly enjoyed the larger, flashier mattresses. Unfortunately these types of beds attracted a variety of bugs, which is a problem that was not solved until the 18th century. Cotton mattresses were introduced at this time, which did not attract bugs. Mattresses started to resemble modern beds in 1865 when coil springs were patented.– 19th Century

Mattresses continued their evolution in the 1930s when upholstery and innerspring mattresses gained popularity, paving the way for futons in the 1940s. The 1950s saw pillows and mattresses made of foam rubber, and the waterbed caught on during the following decade. Adjustable beds also began to enjoy popularity in the 1960s. After the 1980s brought the airbed, the 1990s became the decade of the queen-sized mattress. From the early 2000s on, mattresses have exploded in customization, design, and comfort.

To find out just how far mattresses have come, visit one of the many Mancini’s Sleepworld locations in northern California. We are happy to supply the area with adjustable mattresses as well as gel memory foam and the iComfort Sleep System.

What You Need to Know Before You Begin Mattress Shopping

When you buy a new mattress, you may be spending anywhere from several hundred to several thousand dollars. If it is almost time to start your search, keep reading to find out what you need to know before you begin mattress shopping.

Make Sure You Need a New Mattress

While mattresses tend to last about five to seven years, there is still some wiggle room in that window. Before you go out and buy a new mattress, make sure it is actually necessary. If you do a significant amount of travelling, your home mattress may be able to last a few more years; this is also true if you own a particularly high quality mattress. However, if you do not sleep as well as you used to or you find that you get better sleep elsewhere, the time to look for a new mattress will come much sooner.

Do Your Research

From foam to airbeds to adjustable mattresses, there are plenty of different options. This variety is great, but it can also seem overwhelming. It is important to learn about the different types of mattresses before making a decision so that you can get a feel for the advantages of each. For example, waterbeds are comfortable and can be easily cleaned, but they are difficult to move. Foam mattresses are very durable, but certain climates can take away their firm feeling.

Try Before You Buy

Although it may feel somewhat awkward to try out mattresses in public, it is a necessary part of the shopping experience. Try to put aside your inhibitions and give each mattress an honest try. You will be spending a great deal of time with the mattress that you ultimately choose, so make sure you are positive that it is the perfect one for you.

With 390 innerspring coils and 3/8” of foam, the Sleepworld Designs Bronze Cushion Firm is a quality mattress that provides a comfortable and supportive sleeping surface. Keep reading to find out how to care for this mattress to extend its life:

Get a New Boxspring

Although you probably will not feel it as much as you feel when your mattress is old, boxsprings eventually start to lose their strength and might not provide the support you need. Enhance the appeal of

your mattress by updating your boxspring so you have the perfect foundation for your new sleeping surface.

Rotate the Mattress

New mattresses often get body impressions when you start sleeping on them regularly. Reduce the risk for these impressions by rotating the mattress about 2-4 weeks after you first buy it. This will help you spread out the wear and tear and maintain the integrity of the sleeping surface. You should continue to rotate the mattress a few times a year to prevent one section from getting more worn than another section.

Since you do not regularly look at the surface of the mattress, there could be stains of which you are not aware. Prevent these stains from even happening with a quality mattress cover can keep your mattress safe from stains, spills, allergens, and even bodily fluids that ruin the aesthetic appeal and the value of the mattress beneath. When you strip the bed, spot check the mattress to see if there are any stains that need some extra attention.

Mancini’s Sleepworld has one of the best selections of mattresses, mattress protectors, and bedroom furniture in Northern California. With 31 locations that carry top brands like Tempur-Pedic and Serta mattresses, we give you the selection you need to find a bed that really works for you.

Surprising Health Benefits of Getting a Good Night Sleep

Good Night Sleep

You know that you feel great after a good night of sleep, but do you know why? Keep reading to find out just how much the time on your mattress can improve the hours of your waking life:

Better Memory Retention

The brain uses the sleeping hours as time to recharge. If you are able to get a full night of restful sleep, the mind has the opportunity to make memories stronger and even practice skills that you learned during the day. If you want to memorize a list of definitions before a big test or pick up a new talent, it is imperative to get plenty of sleep to let your brain function at its best.

Improved Overall Health

Inflammation is one of the leading factors of serious diseases like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, and even early aging. Researchers have found that people who sleep fewer than six hours in a night are more likely to have more inflammation. Start improving your nightly sleep routine to lower your risk for diseases like these and enjoy a healthier life.

A More Focused Attention Span

If you find that you have difficulty concentrating on one task for long periods of time, you might not be sleeping enough. Kids who do not get enough sleep might actually start to display some symptoms of disorders like ADHD. A good night of sleep might be all you need to feel more focused and attentive during the day.

If you are not sleeping well, your mattress could be the culprit. Come in to Mancini’s Sleepworld today to check out an iComfort Sleep System, a memory foam mattress, or a Tempur-Pedic mattress and start improving the way you sleep.
