  1. A Look at Our Adjustable Foundation Options

    Adjustable foundations are arguably one of the best things to happen to mattresses since the invention of memory foam. You can use an adjustable base with nearly any type of mattress, or you can purchase a mattress specifically intended for use with a particular base. At Mancini’s Sleepworld, there are plenty of options to choose from.  You could choose an adjustable foundation like the Ergomotion, Inc. 1040 UP Adjustable Base. It allows you to control the elevation of the head of the bed. Or, if you want to elevate both the head and the feet, choose the Ergomotion, Inc. 690 Adjustable Base. Another popular choice is the Beautyrest Smart Motion Base, which elevates the head and feet, and includes a wireless remote.  Try out our full collection of adjustable foundations for yourself at one of our 33 mattress stores throughout California.

  2. What You Need to Know About Flipping Your Mattress

    If you have a standard innerspring mattress, you should flip it and rotate it about four times per year. Flipping your mattress regularly helps prevent it from developing creases from body weight. It also helps it last longer and remains more comfortable. When you flip a mattress over, you’re reversing it so that the top becomes the bottom and vice versa. When you rotate a mattress, you’re putting the head of the bed at the bottom and vice versa.  For more helpful tips on flipping your mattress, watch this video. This individual explains why she recommends flipping mattresses about four times per year. You’ll also learn how you can keep your mattress fresh with just two common household items.  When flipping your mattress no longer helps you stay comfortable, it’s time to shop for a new one at Mancini’s Sleepworld.

  3. Keeping Kids Safe from Furniture Tip-Overs

    Electrical outlets, household cleaners, and sharp objects—these are all common things to deal with when you’re childproofing your home. But not all hazards are as easily identifiable. Many parents overlook the potential dangers of living room and bedroom furniture tip-overs. Televisions, in particular, injure thousands of children every year.  Why Accidents Happen  According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), children sustained 12,300 injuries from falling TVs during 2011 alone. That’s a significant increase from a couple of decades ago. It was thought that larger, flat-screen TVs were to blame, but surprisingly, studies show that small screen TVs are the frequent cause of accidents. This may be because when a family invests in a large TV, they often move the older, smaller TV to a rec room or bedroom. It may be placed on a dresser or other unstable piece of furniture that kids can easily climb. Dressers are especially hazardous since kids can pull out the drawers and climb on them.  How You Can Secure TVs and Furniture  You can secure potentially unstable or top-heavy furniture to the wall by using brackets, braces, or wall straps. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully. You can also install stops on dresser drawers. These prevent the drawers from opening all the way. When multiple drawers in a dresser are open, the dresser is more likely to tip over. Have your flat-screen TV mounted to the wall instead of keeping it on a stand. If you have an older CRT TV, keep it on a stable, low piece of furniture—not a dresser.  What Else You Can Do  Beyond securing furniture and TVs, you can keep your child safe by discouraging climbing on the furniture. Avoid placing remote controls and other tempting items on top of furniture that your kids might climb. Instead, put them out of sight in a drawer. Additionally, keep heavier items on the bottom drawers or shelves of furniture and lighter items on the top to reduce the possibility of a tip-over.  Mancini’s Sleepworld stocks an extensive collection of beautiful, functional, and safe bedroom furniture for kids. When your child is ready to graduate to a larger bed, visit one of our 33 mattress stores in northern California. Or, call (800) 647-5337 to speak with a friendly representative. 
  4. How to Clean Upholstered Furniture

    If you’ve just purchased a new couch or recliner, you’ll want to keep it looking like new for years to come. Cleaning it regularly is essential for giving your furniture a long life. Watch this video to see a cleaning expert demonstrate how she keeps her upholstered furniture clean and fresh. She recommends vacuuming furniture regularly using the dust attachment. Remove the attachment to clean in between the seams. Then, use a mix of laundry detergent and water or white vinegar and essential oils to freshen up the upholstery.

  6. Selecting a Sofa for a Small Space

    Small living rooms can be tricky to furnish. You need a certain number of furniture pieces to make the room functional, but you don’t want to over-furnish it and have it feel too crowded. You can start by choosing the largest piece of furniture in the space: The sofa. Then, you can choose complementary pieces to complete the look, like an occasional table and the entertainment center. Upholstery Some sofas can best be described as “overstuffed.” They feature large, cushiony arms, thick backs, and fluffy seats. These sofas look quite inviting to sit in, but in a small living room, they can feel overbearing. Instead, look for a sofa with more conservative upholstery. It will still feel quite comfortable, but it won’t overwhelm the room. You could also add a few small throw pillows to the sofa to enhance the comfort level of your guests. Size It seems like common sense to choose a small sofa for a small living room. But before you do so, consider whether a loveseat would meet all of your seating needs. If you like to have guests visit your home, you’ll need a recliner or two in addition to a loveseat. Filling a small living room with many small pieces instead of one or two large pieces actually makes it look more cluttered and “busy.” Instead, consider choosing a large sofa with conservative upholstery. Just remember to measure the room’s dimensions first. Color Color is crucial in a small space. A color scheme that’s too dark will make the whole room look smaller. Consider decorating your living room with monochromatic colors to lighten it up. Paint the walls white. Choose a sofa that has a light, neutral tones like beige or tan. You can add a splash of color with throw pillows and a small throw blanket. Looking for a new sofa in northern California?

  7. Tips for Choosing a Mattress for Your Body Type

    Everyone deserves a good night’s sleep. It’s the foundation of good health and quality of life. But if your mattress doesn’t suit your body type, you’re probably tossing and turning at night. Invest in your wellness by upgrading your bed. A staff member at the mattress store can help you find the right mattress for your unique body type. Small Body Types Petite, thin individuals typically feel most comfortable on a very soft bed. A mattress that’s too firm won’t provide enough “give” at the pressure points (shoulders and hips). A soft bed allows the sleeper to sink into the bed just enough to align the spine comfortably and relieve pressure. Small body types tend to do well with memory foam, latex, or memory foam and latex hybrid beds. Some might prefer a softer innerspring mattress with a luxurious pillowtop. Heavy Body Types Sleepers who are heavier and larger tend to feel most comfortable on a medium firm bed. A bed that’s too soft would allow a heavier sleeper to sink into the material too far, which can actually stress the back and neck because it misaligns the spine. It can also cause the muscles and joints to feel discomfort. Instead, heavier sleepers should choose a bed that offers enough support to keep the spine aligned. A thicker mattress is also a good idea. Heavier sleepers typically do well with innerspring mattresses, although some of them may prefer an innerspring topped with dense foam for extra comfort. Pregnant Body Types Sleep is so important for a healthy pregnancy, but it often proves elusive, particularly during the second and third trimesters. Moms-to-be can pamper themselves with a new bed that suits their unique needs. While every expecting mom is different, many of them prefer a foam-based mattress or a hybrid bed. Note that pregnant women are often hot sleepers, so a gel-based mattress may be the best choice. Mancini’s Sleepworld has premium mattresses for all body types. Our 33 mattress stores in California carry top name brands, including Beautyrest, Serta, Sealy, Stearns and Foster, and Kluft. To inquire about our current inventory or ask about our Best Price Guarantee, call (800) 647-5337.
  8. How Old Is Your Pillow?

    If you’ve been using your current pillow for two years or longer, it’s possible that up to one-third of its weight is made up of dust mites and their feces, bugs, and dead skin cells. No one wants dust mites in their bed, but it’s particularly problematic for people with allergies or asthma.  According to this featured video, some experts recommend heading to the mattress store to buy a new pillow every six months. Three years is generally the maximum time you should keep a pillow. And remember to wash your pillow every three months!  You’ll find quality pillows and fine linens from top bedding brands at Mancini’s Sleepworld. Call one of our 33 mattress stores in California at (800) 647-5337. 
  9. Upgrading Your Sleep with the Beautyrest Sleeptracker

    The Beautyrest brand has long been synonymous with exceptional quality and comfort. If you’re currently sleeping on a Beautyrest mattress, then you already know the difference its technology can make for your quality of sleep. Now, the folks at Beautyrest have come up with another way to improve your sleep: The Beautyrest Sleeptracker. What It Is The Beautyrest Sleeptracker is similar to a fitness tracker, except that it tracks your sleep. There are a few other sleep monitors available on the market, but the Beautyrest Sleeptracker is the only sleep monitoring device that is powered by artificial intelligence, Alexa-enabled, and fully integrated into your smart home. Plus, it’s non-wearable, so there are no uncomfortable wires or bulky devices to share your bed with you. What It Does  There are lots of benefits to using this sleep monitoring device, but arguably the best is its intuitive alarm clock. You’ll determine a window of time in which you’d like to wake up. The Beautyrest Sleeptracker will evaluate your sleep cycles. When you’re within that window of time, and within the lightest sleep cycle, the alarm will go off. Awakening within this light sleep cycle is ideal because you’ll wake up less groggy, more refreshed, and ready to take on the day! How It Works There are three main components: The central processing unit (CPU), movement sensors, and an app. You’ll plug in the CPU and place it near your bed. The movement sensors slide under your mattress and on top of the base or box spring. These are plugged into the CPU. You’ll also download the free app, which runs on Android and iOS. The benefit of having two movement sensors is that just one device can track the sleep of two different people. Each morning, the device uses your Wi-Fi to automatically upload your data into your account and generate personalized reports. Once your system is set up, it runs automatically—no need to worry about turning on the app each night before bed. Upgrade your sleep today by taking a trip to one of the 33 locations of Mancini’s Sleepworld in California. We carry premium beds at affordable prices, including Beautyrest mattresses and the Beautyrest Sleeptracker. Call a friendly representative at (800) 647-5337 if you have any questions.
  10. Will an Adjustable Foundation Work with My Current Mattress?

    It’s a common misconception that, if you purchase an adjustable foundation, you absolutely must purchase a new mattress. This isn’t always the case. In fact, most mattresses can adapt well to an adjustable foundation. But you should always check with the representative at the mattress store, just to be sure. Adjustable foundations work well with memory foam, latex, hybrid, and futon mattresses. You can even use most innerspring mattresses on an adjustable base, but always check before you buy. Of course, if your current mattress isn’t doing a good job supporting the contours of your body, then it makes sense to replace your mattress and the base at the same time. Consider treating yourself to a new mattress if you frequently wake up with aches and pains, have trouble getting to sleep, or just can’t seem to get comfortable in bed. Head over to Mancini’s Sleepworld to browse our extensive selection of adjustable foundations available at a range of price points. To inquire about our local inventory, you can reach one of our 33 mattress stores throughout California at (800) 647-5337.
