3 Common Mattress Myths Debunked

Buying a new mattress can sometimes be an intimidating or confusing process. On TV and across the internet, there are countless outlets offering mattress information that is outdated and sometimes even downright inaccurate. Before shopping for a new mattress, it pays to educate yourself on some of the most common mattress myths that are often passed around as fact. The more you know about the mattress industry, the easier it will be for you to make an informed decision that will leave you satisfied.

Myth: Your Mattress Needs to be Flipped Every Few Months

If you have ever flipped a mattress, you know that it is no easy feat. Mattresses are large and heavy, making it nearly impossible to flip one alone. That is why it should come as a great relief to know that flipping your mattress is on its way to becoming a thing of the past. While some older mattress models may still need to be flipped, the majority of mattresses made today are one-sided, which means that there is no flipping required. With a one-sided mattress, all you need to do is rotate your mattress every few months to distribute pressure evenly and reduce body impressions. 

Myth: You Must Replace Your Mattress Every 8 Years

While it is true that no mattress lasts forever, it is possible for your mattress to last 10, 12, or maybe even 15 years if treated with the proper care. Basically, the better you treat your mattress, the longer its lifespan will be. To keep your mattress in tip-top shape, make sure to clean and rotate your mattress regularly. Using a mattress cover will also help lengthen its lifespan. How do you know when your mattress is finally on its last leg? When your mattress causes you pain or begins to show deep body indentations, then it is time to start shopping for a new one.

Myth: Every Mattress Requires a Box Spring

Another outdated piece of advice is that every mattress needs a box spring. While it is true that every mattress should have a foundation of some sort, mattress technology has evolved over the years, resulting in a variety of options beyond the standard box spring. If you would like to skip the box spring, considering purchasing a platform bed or an adjustable bed, both of which will provide your mattress with sufficient support in one convenient furniture piece.  

Once you know the true story behind these common mattress myths, you are ready to start shopping! Come to Mattress & More today, where you will find an extensive selection of brand name mattresses at prices unmatched by any other business in the area.

Why Choose an Adjustable Bed?

Despite there being many adjustable beds on the market, most people remain unaware of the many benefits this unique type of bed has to offer. Many people view adjustable beds as something primarily used in hospitals or for people with limited mobility; however, they can be quite beneficial for anyone who is looking to enhance their quality of sleep. Learn more about how an adjustable bed can improve your sleep, your health, and your overall quality of life.

Reduces Back Pain

If your flat mattress fails to provide sufficient back support, pairing it with an adjustable bed can be a game-changer. An adjustable bed will improve your mattress’ body-contouring capabilities, which will promote proper spinal alignment and help to relieve pressure throughout. Inclining the head of the bed by 45 degrees is particularly useful for relieving pressure on your lower back.

Relieves Digestive Issues

Lying in a horizontal position makes it harder for your body to digest food, which is tied to weight gain and stomach discomfort. If you tend to have your dinner right before bed or often indulge in a midnight snack, then an adjustable bed can come in handy. Keeping your upper body in an elevated position will encourage proper digestion. Having a bed that allows you to sleep elevated will also prevent stomach acid from moving to your esophagus, which will decrease symptoms of heartburn and acid reflux.

Promotes Good Circulation

If you suffer from fluid retention, an adjustable bed can provide you with a great deal of relief. With the ability to raise either the head or foot of your bed, an adjustable bed can reduce fluid buildup and pain for people who suffer from either leg edema or pulmonary edema. Adjusting your bed to elevate your legs can also relieve the pain associated with sprained or broken limbs, and it can even combat varicose veins. 

At Mattress & More, we have adjustable beds for sale in five sizes—from Twin size all the way up to King size. Our adjustable beds are exceptionally affordable, and they provide a wealth of health benefits even beyond what is listed above. To view our extensive bed selection, you can shop with us online, or else you can visit us in Columbus, IN or at any one of our 15 mattress stores located throughout Kentucky and Indiana. Once you make the switch to an innovative adjustable bed, you can look forward to a better, more peaceful sleep!

Helpful Back to School Sleep Tips

Now that August has come to an end, the back-to-school season is officially upon us. It’s time to say good bye to the freedom of summer and say hello to early mornings and set schedules. Getting your child to transition to their new fall routine comes with its fair share of challenges, but at Mattress & More, we’re here to help. Learn more about how important sleep is during the school year and how you can help your child start the year off right.

Establish a Set Bedtime for Your Child

While your child may have had a flexible sleep schedule during the summer months, it’s important that they have more structure during the school year. When your child is well-rested, they will be more focused and attentive in class and their brains will do a better job retaining new information. To make sure your child gets enough sleep each night, set a bedtime for them to adhere to throughout the entire school year. If your child is 3-5 years old, set a bedtime that will allow them to get 10-13 hours of sleep. If your child is 6-12 years old then they should get about 9-12 hours of sleep. If you have a child 12 or older, make sure they get at least 8-10 hours of sleep.

Consider a Mattress Upgrade

Ensuring your child gets a good night’s sleep involves more than just establishing a bedtime. Your child’s mattress has a significant impact on both the amount of sleep they get as well as the quality. Since children are quite active and their body goes through a lot of changes, you need to make sure they have a mattress that offers sufficient comfort and support. If they are sleeping on a mattress that is showing signs of wear and tear, or if their growth spurts have caused them to literally outgrow their mattress, then it’s time to purchase a new one. At Mattress & More, we have an extensive collection of quality brand name mattresses that will allow your child to sleep soundly through the night. From innerspring mattresses that are as soft as a cloud to firm memory foam mattresses with body-contouring capabilities—our discount mattress store has it all!

Enhance their Sleep Space with Mattress Accessories

Every child has different needs when it comes to their ideal sleep space. Fortunately, we sell a variety of accessories that will give their mattress an instant upgrade. Does your child suffer from nighttime allergies? Purchase one of our hypoallergenic mattress covers, which will protect your child’s mattress from dust mites, mold, and a variety of other pesky allergens. Does your child often sweat or overheat as they sleep? Our microfiber sheet sets feature a soft, breathable fabric that provides a cool sleep surface every night!

Remember, a good night’s sleep is crucial to your child’s success, so they deserve nothing but the best. Come to Mattress & More today, where will find brand name mattresses for sale and a variety of quality mattress accessories, all of which will help your child sleep soundly.

3 Reasons to Start Using a Mattress Protector

If you’ve ever shopped for a mattress, odds are you’ve also come across a selection of mattress protectors. Despite being a fairly common product, many people still remain confused about what exactly a mattress protector does. While the purpose of the product is right in the title, the question that remains on many minds is what exactly does this protect my mattress from? At Mattress & More, we can shed some light on the issue. Our mattress store carries a variety of mattress protectors that will significantly enhance your mattress as well as your quality of sleep. Find out more about how a mattress protector can benefit you.

Protect Your Mattress from Spills and Accidents

Even if you are exceptionally clean and careful, sometimes accidents will happen, so it’s best to be prepared. Without a mattress protector, things like spilled liquids and perspiration can soak into your mattress, causing stains and even mold growth. Fortunately, we provide a selection of waterproof mattress protectors that will keep your mattress clean and dry if an unfortunate accident occurs.

Defend You Mattress Against Unwanted Pests

Do you suffer from allergies? Do you notice your allergy symptoms seem to get worse when you lie down in bed each night? If so, your mattress may have a dust mite infestation. Dust mites are microscopic creatures that flock to humid areas, such as your bedding, where they can feed on dust particles and dead skin cells. By encasing your mattress in a mattress protector, you will prevent it from accumulating dust particles and moisture, which are what bring the dust mites to your bed. Not only can a mattress protector shield your mattress from dust mites, but it can also be your first line of defense against bed bugs. Bed bugs hide in mattress cracks and feed on human blood. If you wake up covered in red itchy bites, then your bed may have a bed bug infestation. Fortunately, a bed bug mattress protector will trap any bed bugs already on your mattress, as well as prevent it from attracting more. Once you purchase a mattress protector, you can sleep soundly without fear of any tiny intruders. 

Enjoy a Cooler Sleep Surface

In addition to protecting your mattress from stains and allergens, our mattress protectors will also provide you with a cooler sleep surface. Made from innovative, breathable fabrics, our mattress protectors were designed to wick away body moisture and keep the surface of your bed cool and dry.

If you are ready to experience the benefits of one of our quality mattress protectors, come to Mattress & More today! You can visit us in Elizabethtown, KY or at any one of our 15 mattress stores located throughout Kentucky and Indiana.

Helpful Tips for Improving Your Quality of Sleep

When it comes to staying healthy, getting a good night’s sleep plays a crucial role. Sleep does so much more than just help you feel rested—it also supports your immune system, keeps your mind sharp and alert, and it helps reduce your risk of diabetes. If you find yourself suffering from a lack of sleep, here are a few tips to help you get back on track.

Adhere to a Sleep Schedule
While it can be a bit tricky to stick to a consistent sleep schedule, it certainly helps to try. Having a set bedtime every day will regulate your body’s internal clock and it will keep your body’s sleep/wake cycle consistent. Also, aim for getting at least 7 – 8 hours of sleep each day.

Wind Down with a Relaxing Bedtime Ritual
As your bedtime approaches, it’s important to take steps to relax both your mind and body and rid yourself of the day’s stress. Put aside your cell phone and computer, and consider laying in bed with a good book. Sipping a cup of decaffeinated chamomile tea can help as well.

Invest in a Quality Mattress
If your sleep is suffering, it may be time to consider a new mattress. If you are sleeping on a worn-out or inferior quality mattress, it is probably not providing you with the comfort and support that your body needs. Our mattress store sells a variety of high-quality mattresses that feature innovative technologies such as luxurious pillowtop cushioning and supportive and hypoallergenic memory foam. Additionally, all of our mattresses for sale come from reputable brand names such as Sealy and Stearns & Foster, which means you can count of them to last for years to come.

Keep Your Bedroom Neat and Organized
Believe it or not, your bedroom organization can affect your sleep as well. While a neat and tidy bedroom can calm your mind, a bedroom full of clutter and chaos can actually result in increased anxiety. To ensure your bedroom remains organized and serene, invest in a set of spacious bedroom storage furniture. A roomy dresser or a versatile storage bed can make all the difference when it comes to finding  a proper place for all your possessions.

At Mattress & More, our customers are our top priority, and we want to do all we can to ensure that our customers enjoy restful sleep every night.  We hope these tips come in handy and we encourage you to visit our discount mattress store to see all the great sleep-enhancing furniture and mattress options we have to offer.
