Buying a Quality Mattress While Avoiding the High Price Tag

There are two comments customers frequently repeat in my store when picking out a mattress, and both comments have validity, but not maybe in the manner you’d expect.  The first comment is, “You can’t tell anything by trying out a mattress for 20 seconds.

Ever feel like you’ve paid too much for a mattress that didn’t live up to your expectations? Instead of shopping the big-name brands, we recommend seeking out an independently owned, factory-direct mattress manufacturer near you. These are usually smaller family-owned businesses that handcraft mattresses using only the most durable, comfortable, quality materials. As a small business, they want to provide only the best mattresses for their customers and offer top-notch customer service.

How do you buy a bed without ever laying on it? You can and should read plenty of reviews, scour the Internet for information comparing materials, warrantees, and customer satisfaction. But what works for other people won’t necessarily be the right solution for you. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all model for people. We’re all built differently; your mattress should be too.

There are two comments customers frequently repeat in my store when picking out a mattress, and both comments have validity, but not maybe in the manner you’d expect.
The first comment is, “You can’t tell anything by trying out a mattress for 20 seconds.”
The second comment is, “This mattress feels good, so it’s perfect.”
Let’s take a look at each of these.

Hybrid Mattresses

Hybrid Mattresses

At Arizona Premium Mattress we have noticed a huge increase in sales related to our Pocket Coil with Latex designed hybrid mattresses. I think one of the main reasons people are gravitating to this type of mattress is that it's more of a "known feel". In other words when buying a mattress online you are always taking a risk of it not being what you expected especially since you cannot try it first. Most people are familiar with the feel of a spring type mattress but as many of you have experienced lately the durability of the foams used in those fall short of expectation. Most spring mattresses were not designed so they could be roll packed and shipped via FedEx or UPS until very recently.

Made with All Natural Latex Does Not Mean It's All Natural

All Natural Talalay

Over and over again I see what to me is very misleading descriptions, although truthful, so let me take a minute to clarify some terminology I see tossed around on the internet. The term "Made With 100% Natural Talalay" does not mean that it is completely all natural Talalay made by Talalay Global or Radium Foam. I see this term being used in conjunction with Blended Talalay which of course is a mix of both all natural rubber and synthetic rubber. 

Mattress Buying 101

Mattress Buying 101
Mattress buying has become one of the most statistically proven dreaded experiences for a consumer. But does it have to be? The words and language used alone can be an overwhelming experience. This article is designed to help take some of the guess-work out of mattress buying.

Memory Foam and Possible Health Risks

Aug 15, 2019

Yesterday I received a phone call from a repeat customer who wanted to order some more latex toppers for a beach house she had just inherited in Florida. She was sharing with me stories about her experiences with memory foam mattresses and I asked her to put it in writing because even though I know and preach against memory foam it would be better for people to hear from someone other than myself. Whether the Memory Foam in her experiences was certified or not I have no way of knowing but below is a copy of her testimonial and should be read by everyone who is considering memory foam mattresses.
