Mattress By Appointment® CEO Edwin Shoffner Partners with Fostering Great Ideas

by @ Mattress By Appointment: Latest News

Mattress by Appointment, LLC announced a philanthropic partnership with Fostering Great Ideas, an Upstate, S.C. non-profit focused on improving the lives of children in the foster care system. The two will partner to provide mattresses for these children. This strategic partnership will aid the Sib-Link TM initiative, which aims keep siblings from being separated.

Mattress by Appointment, LLC, owned by Edwin Shoffner, is a national mattress retail business consisting of over 300 locations throughout the United States.

“We are thrilled to join Fostering Great Ideas in their quest to improve the lives of children in the foster care system,” says Shoffner. “At Mattress by Appointment, we believe in the power of transformation, whether it be through enabling owner-opera- tors throughout the country or providing essential quality sleep at an affordable price for customers from coast to coast.”

Shoffner continues, “As a parent, the mission of Fostering Great Ideas speaks to both me and my wife, Tonya. As any parent can attest, quality sleep is important in the lives of children. It plays a significant role in academic performance and provides a sense of stability. But on a fundamental level, having a place to rest your head is profoundly important when life throws so many variables your way. At Mattress by Appointment, we couldn’t imagine not doing everything in our power to help children in need.”

Shoffner and Mattress by Appointment have made a twelve-month commitment of up to fourteen (14) twin sets, twelve (12) full sets, ten (10) queen sets, or eight (8) king sets per month. One twin set traditionally costs upwards of $399, which many foster families cannot afford. Thanks to Mattress by Appointment’s commitment, these families no longer have to worry about providing proper bedding.

For Shoffner and the Mattress by Appointment family, keeping siblings together throughout the foster care process hits home. “One of our Mattress by Appointment dealers was seeking to foster a child, or children,” he says. “They received a call about three siblings, but they were only going to receive the 6-year- old and 4-year- old. Not their 2-month- old sibling.”

Shoffner continues, “Our Mattress by Appointment dealer couldn’t imagine how this would not negatively impact the siblings, so she and her husband asked if the children could stay with their current foster home for two weeks while they prepared their home, took additional steps with family, and gathered the support necessary to ensure they could keep the children together. So, this is very personal to me and my company.”

“Mattress by Appointment’s commitment of mattresses will help enable foster families to take in siblings, not just one child,” says David White, CEO & Founder of Fostering Great Ideas. “With this strategic and generous gift, children will feel emotional security in a comfortable bed with their siblings nearby. The feeling of security is psychologically imperative during this very uncertain time. This gift helps to bring aware- ness, change perspective and shine a light on a new direction forward for vulnerable children. The children matter and the community cares. This is truly a gift that will lead the way.”

About Sib-LinkTM


Unfortunately, many siblings are separated upon entry into the foster care system. Sib- Link TM recognizes the developmental benefits of keeping these relationships bonded and works to keep these siblings in contact. Sib-Link TM arranges visits for the siblings with their ultimate goal of getting them under the same roof. Sibling relationships are important when children undergo a sense of loss and confusion in their identity. Keeping siblings in contact help bridge that gap.

About Fostering Great Ideas


Fostering Great Ideas improves the experience for every child in foster care. Knowing that losses multiply and stress amplifies the longer a child stays in care, their goal is to provide support throughout the foster care journey, ultimately resulting in getting lives back on track. Fostering Great Ideas’ mission is dedicated to improving the lives of children as they struggle in foster care.

How to Buy a Mattress with Bad Credit

by Shop Manager @ Ben's

Even at a budget mattress store like Ben’s, a new bed can be outside of the financial means of a family that doesn’t necessarily have a large amount of money on-hand to spend on an improved night’s sleep. For this reason, Ben’s offers financing for customers to help spread out the cost of the mattress over time. Five Tips for Buying a Mattress with Bad Credit Of course, anybody that ever has bought anything on credit knows that the better the credit score, the more desirable the terms, and people with bad credit may even have had experiences where they were not offered financing at all because their scores were so low. Lenders see bad credit scores as a liability in terms of recouping a loan, so it can be hard to finance an item if you have an undesirable score. The good news is that Ben’s offers financing to all types of buyers.  If you are considering purchasing a mattress and you have bad credit, consider the following tips before delving into financing a new mattress or bedroom set: Clean Up Your Credit If you know the time is coming to purchase a new bed, perhaps consider delaying the purchase by a few months to clean up your score a bit. This might mean paying off past-due accounts, disputing credit report errors, and adding any positive information you can to your credit report. This could potentially boost your score enough to make financing a little easier and more cost effective. Don’t Make It Worse Even if you can’t do much to clean up your score, you can ensure that you don’t make it worse in the meantime. Pay everything on time and avoid starting any new credit cards or taking on any other new financing obligations. If you can steer clear of tax liens, debt collections, and late payments, you’ll have a better chance at getting desirable financing terms for your mattress. Expect Slightly Higher Interest Rates It is no secret that the best interest rates typically are reserved for those with better credit. While you may still be able to get a loan with a less-than-desirable credit score, you should expect to have a higher rate than the best advertised deals. Read the Fine Print Beyond that, sometimes financing can come with penalties if the financing isn’t paid off in the agreed-upon time frame. Knowing those types of items, as well as the exact terms of the loan itself, are important in ensuring you get the financing you need without further burdening yourself or worsening your credit somewhere down the line. Understand Your Budget The bottom line in all of this is that it’s important to understand just

Tick-Tock Goes the Body Clock

by Mattress One @ Mattress One Blog - Mattress Information & Tips

Learn more about the circadian rhythm and how it helps you sleep.

Do you go to sleep and wake up around the same time every day? Do you notice that you tend to feel drowsy at certain times of the day and wide awake at other times? If so, you have your circadian rhythm to thank for this.

The circadian rhythm is a 24-hour sleep/wake cycle that’s found in most living beings – not just humans, but also animals, plants, and even fungi and some bacteria. In humans, its effects can be measured in hormone production, body temperature changes, and of course, sleepiness and wakefulness. Without your circadian rhythm, you’d find it much harder to go to sleep and be awake at the proper times.

Learn more about how the circadian rhythm works and what you can do to keep it working well below!

How does the circadian rhythm work?

The circadian rhythm allows you to keep a consistent sleep/wake cycle even when you don’t have access to outside stimuli, like clocks and the lightening and darkening sky. The rhythm itself is run by a cluster of 20,000 nerves in the brain called the suprachiasmatic nucleus, or SCN. This is the body’s “master clock.”

The SCN controls the hormone production, body temperature changes, and more that get you through your routine each and every day. One of the most important things it does is receive light information from the eyes. As night draws in and the light dims, your SCN tells the pineal gland to start producing melatonin. This is the hormone that makes you sleepy at night.

Most of the time, the SCN runs your circadian rhythm so unobtrusively that you don’t even notice it. You don’t think of it as a complex biological and chemical process; to you, it’s just your routine. It’s only when the circadian rhythm gets disrupted that you start to notice negative effects. These range from feeling grouchy or groggy after an episode of jet lag to diseases such as diabetes, obesity, seasonal affective disorder, depression, and bipolar disorder.

How can you keep your circadian rhythm working well?

Routine is the key to a well-functioning circadian rhythm. Try to go to bed and wake up at around the same time every day – even on the weekends. Make sure you’re getting a full night’s sleep every night (seven to nine hours for adults). Practice good sleep hygiene, like banishing screens from the bedroom. The bright light from televisions, tablets, and cell phones can confuse the SCN and interfere with the production of melatonin, which can make it harder to sleep.

The other important thing you can do is monitor your circadian rhythm and bring up any changes to your doctor. To a certain extent, the circadian rhythm is outside our conscious control. If you find yourself suffering from insomnia or an irregular sleep/wake schedule, the best thing you can do is consult with your doctor. He or she may be able to find and treat the underlying cause so you can get back on track.

Let the folks at Mattress One help!

While we’re certainly not doctors, all of us here at Mattress One understand the importance of a good night’s sleep. We also know you won’t be getting that kind of sleep on your lumpy old mattress! If you find your mattress is keeping you up at night, don’t waste another day. Come to Mattress One and find your perfect mattress today.

In fact, here at Ben’s, we offer a number of truly excellent mattresses and bedroom sets capable of fitting any budget. You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to get a better night’s sleep, and here in the Atlanta area, it’s hard to think of a better place to go shopping for new bedroom furniture. Three Tips for Buying an Affordable Bedroom Set in Atlanta Once you have decided to shop at Ben’s in search of a better night’s sleep or a more fashionable bedroom, the following tips can ensure that you make the most of your trip to one of our 14 Atlanta-area locations: #1 Find a Great Pairing Between Bedroom Set & Mattress There are several excellent bedroom sets available in our showroom, all of which start at prices well below $1,000 and include combinations of bedframes, headboards, footboards, dressers and mirrors. The Louis Philippe III Cherry Bedroom Set, for example, is a sleigh style bed in beautiful warm cherry wood, while the Fenbrook Bedroom Set and offers a darker wood and a more traditional look, and the Carlton Bedroom Set offers leather aesthetic flourishes on the headboard and footboard. Choosing the right style and adding a comfortable, affordable mattress is a great way to start your new bedroom right here at Ben’s. #2 Choose the Right Size Remember to have a good sense of the size of the bedroom before making any new purchase. If your room can’t accommodate a king-size bed, then consider a queen or full-size mattress instead. Couples typically prefer the larger sizes, but make sure you have a sense of just how much furniture you can fit in the room where you sleep. #3 Consider Current Bedroom Furniture Trends Mid-Century Modern style furniture is a big hit right now, which is why our Barzini and Serenity bedroom sets are a great option for those looking to take advantage of what’s trendy. We also have seen minimalistic trends in some bedroom furniture that strips away a lot of the more baroque flourishes in favor of something a little plainer and simpler. Several of our furniture sets are more understated for those that prefer something a little less ostentatious. If you have any questions about any of the terrific beds that we sell here at Ben’s, simply stop by or give us a call and we’ll happily walk you through the process of getting everything you need at a price you can appreciate.

Back Pain and Your Mattress

by Mattress One @ Mattress One Blog - Mattress Information & Tips

Waking Up Creaky and Achy? Your Mattress May Be to Blame!

Does this describe you? Morning after morning, you wake up to a dull ache in your back. You sit on the mattress for a minute; you stretch. You shake the sleep out of your head and get up to start your day. By the time you’re done with your morning workout, shower, and the rest of your routine, the back pain is gone – until the next day, of course, when it starts again.

You might think that you’re just getting old(er). You might think that the back pain comes from too much time sitting in an office chair. You might not think about the pain at all once it goes away.

But have you ever thought that maybe your mattress is responsible for the pain?

It’s a fact: old, worn-out mattresses can cause back pain.

All mattresses get old eventually, and when they do, they usually send their owners a few telltale signs that it’s time to go mattress shopping. As a mattress ages, it becomes less supportive, often starting to sag in the middle. Pressure points increase, and it’s hard to maintain proper sleeping posture. This can lead to back pain.

How can you tell if your mattress is behind your back pain?

Back pain is a huge medical problem – approximately 31 million Americans are suffering from it right now, and up to 80% of us will experience back problems at some point. And there are many different causes of back pain, ranging from accidents and injuries to arthritis, poor posture, and even some types of cancer. If you’re experiencing back pain, it’s not always easy to tell whether your mattress is to blame or you have another medical problem.

One of the first things you should do, of course, is to talk to your doctor. Based on your medical history, your doctor might want to order certain tests to rule out potentially serious medical problems. But if the cause isn’t an obvious medical problem, then you might want to look more closely at your mattress.

Consider the following:

• How old is your mattress? If it’s more than 8-10 years old, then it’s time for a new mattress, no matter what is ultimately causing your back pain.
• When does your back hurt? If your back tends to hurt first thing in the morning, with the pain going away relatively quickly, that’s another sign your mattress is the cause of your back pain.
• Do you wake up tossing and turning? If the discomfort won’t let you get an uninterrupted night’s sleep, then you should definitely consider a new mattress.
• Do you sleep better away from home? Waking up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed when you’re anywhere but your home sweet home is a sure sign that your mattress needs to go.

If you answered yes to one or more of the questions above, then you know it’s time to go mattress shopping. And here at Mattress One, we’re eager to help you get started. Our mattress experts can help you find the mattress that feels the most comfortable to you.

Say goodbye to creaky, achy back pain, and say hello to a new mattress! All of us here at Mattress One hope to see you soon.

4 Reasons You Should Always Use a Boxspring

by Shop Manager @ Ben's

Because mattress sets are considered a major purchase for the majority of American consumers, we get a lot of questions here at Ben’s about whether the addition of box spring actually is necessary. Many people wonder whether or not they actually need the box spring for their new mattress to function properly, but the answer to this question never is a straight “yes” or a “no.” The reality lies in the gray area. The simplest answer we can give is that the need for a box spring depends entirely on the type of mattress and the type of bed. One universal truth is that a mattress does need to lay atop a hard, flat surface, making a boxspring an ideal option. Platform beds work, too, and though not aesthetically pleasing to most, some individuals place their mattress directly on the floor. Though box springs are not a mandatory addition to purchasing a mattress there are several reasons that make them worth the initial cost up front. Here are four reasons you should use a boxspring: Warranties Sometimes Require Box springs Most manufactures require that a mattress be supported by a box spring, at least if a customer is planning on filing a warranty claim at any point. It makes sense; these mattresses were designed to work at peak function in congress with these box springs, so if something goes wrong with a bed that was not being used in the manner the manufacturer intended, why would they be obligated to honor the claim? Some Two-Sided Mattresses Need the Support While many newer mattresses include all the built-in support a sleeper needs to be comfortable and get a good night’s rest, there are certain styles of two-sided mattresses that still require a box spring for ultimate support. If it is the type of mattress that can be flipped, it still needs a box spring, largely because support is why those box springs were invented in the first place. The Added Height Makes Getting in and out of Bed Easier Some people love their platform beds, but they also are quite a bit lower to the ground, which can make it harder to get in and out of bed. This may be no big deal for spring chickens, but older individuals who struggle with this daily act may prefer a box spring if only to lay down and rise up with relative ease every morning and every night. Your Bed May Need One for Aesthetic Reasons Finally, a raised bed flat-out looks better on most bedroom sets, filling the room a little more and making it feel more homey. A bed that is low to the floor can create a cavernous sensation

What’s Inside a Mattress?

by Cullie Burris @ Ben's

Most customers are solely concerned about whether or not their mattresses are comfortable, seldom do any give consideration to exactly why they are comfortable. The truth is that mattresses can be built from a number of materials in many different ways to make up a sleeping surface for every type and shape of human body. The following is a look at what materials make up a mattress, and hopefully this information will help Ben’s customers find the right mattresses for them, regardless of whether they shop online or come visit us in person at our store. The Most Common Mattress Materials There are a handful of materials that are most common in mattresses, including: Steel Coils Many mattresses feature some type of steel coil, which either can be arranged in an open manner or individually wrapped or “pocketed.” They are the primary source of support in many types of beds. Foam The other main option is foam, which adheres to the contours of the body and sometimes regulates the temperature of the mattress. There are several types of foam used in today’s mattresses, including memory foam, gel memory foam, polyurethane foam, and others. Polyester Batting Some pillowtop mattresses use this polyester “fluff” to add some body to the top part of the mattress. Cotton There are several different ways that this popular material can be used in a mattress, ranging from interior uses to the exterior covering. What’s Inside an Innerspring Mattress? As mentioned above, there are two types of innerspring mattresses: one that individually pockets every spring, and one that lays the springs out in a more open manner. These typically are wrapped in some sort of cotton blend on the outside for general comfort, while the coils themselves are used for support. One thing to note is that more coils does not necessarily mean a more comfortable bed. More coils does mean a reduction in motion transfer, though, which can be nice for those that share a bed with a spouse or partner. What’s Inside a Foam Mattress? The insides of a foam mattress typically are constructed of layers of foam, with the top layer being the one meant to provide the majority of the support. There are all kinds of different types of foam ranging from hard to soft, but the layers of foam all work together to make sleepers comfortable and relieve stress on major pressure points. Unlike innerspring mattresses, which require extra materials to hold all the coils together, foam mattresses really just need an outside layer of material primarily for aesthetic purposes. What’s Inside a Hybrid Mattress? Hybrid mattresses have become increasingly popular, combining an innerspring base for support and a layer or two

Your Guide to Mattress Sizes

by Mattress One @ Mattress One Blog - Mattress Information & Tips

Twin, Full, Queen or King?

The size of mattress you pick will depend on the size of the room it’ll be placed in and how many people will be sleeping on it. But in order to make the best decision, you’ll want to know the exact dimensions you’ll be working with, as well as the pros and cons of each mattress size. That’s why we’ve created this handy guide to mattress sizes. We want to make sure that the next time you come into our store, you’ll be armed with the right information.

Learn more about the different sizes below, and be sure to give us a call or just stop by if you need any help finding the right size mattress for your home.

Twin

Dimensions: 38” x 75”

Where to Use: Fit for a single sleeper, twin beds are perfect for kids’ rooms, especially young kids who have just outgrown their cribs. The compact size makes it easy for even a small room to feel big (especially when paired with a young child’s imagination). Parents also like these mattresses because they can be used on daybeds and bunk beds, giving them more options in tight spaces.

Twin XL

Dimensions: 38” x 80”

Where to Use: Like a regular twin mattress, a twin XL is really only big enough to sleep one. However, those five extra inches of legroom can come in quite handy for adults and taller adolescents! College dormitories also tend to favor these mattresses, as they’re long enough for even the lankiest basketball players but still narrow enough to fit in the dorm.

Full

Dimensions: 53” x 75”

Where to Use: A full bed is a bit wider than a twin, but it’s really quite a squeeze for two. Most couples wouldn’t like sleeping on a full bed night after night, unless space is really tight. The lack of legroom can also cramp many adults’ style. Because of this, full beds are best recommended for children and teenagers. They can also be a great option for guest rooms.

Queen

Dimensions: 60” x 80”

Where to Use: Plenty wide for two and long enough for even the tallest, queen beds are a great compromise mattress for couples with relatively small bedrooms. Because queen beds are relatively narrow, it’s easier to squeeze two nightstands, a dresser, or other furniture into the bedroom, making the most out of every inch of space. Single sleepers also love queen beds, as it gives them plenty of space to stretch out at night while not cramping their style during the day.

King

Dimensions: 76” x 80”

Where to Use: When partners want lots of space to stretch out at night, the king bed is the right pick! King beds are especially great in hot, sticky climates, as both partners can retreat to their end of the bed in order to savor those blessed last cool inches of the mattress. Of course, couples who choose a mattress this big need to have a big bedroom. Otherwise, they might have to make compromises on their other bedroom furniture.

California King

Dimensions: 72” x 84”

Where to Use: As you might guess, the California king is especially popular in the state of California. It’s actually slightly smaller than the regular king bed in terms of total area, but most couples don’t really notice the lack of space. This mattress size is great for bedrooms that are longer than they are wide and for very tall sleepers. California king sleepers just need to be careful when selecting bedding, as regular king size sheets and blankets won’t fit on this mattress.

How to Stop Yelling when Angry

When you feel angry, do you tend to express yourself by shouting? If so, you've probably noticed that this habit is ruining your relationships with others—and it probably doesn't help you get your way or make you feel better, either. Change your communication habits when angry by first learning to diffuse your feelings in an appropriate way. Then, go back to the drawing board and state your needs calmly and rationally.

Have you ever really sat down and thought about what sleep actually is?

Most people haven't. They certainly know when they haven't had enough sleep, and most people have a decent idea of how much sleep they need to function. Beyond that, it's simply a fact of life. You turn the lights down, snuggle under the covers, close your eyes, and off you go.

But although sleep might seem simple, it's a complex biological process that is absolutely necessary for life. To help you learn more, we've put together this quick primer on what sleep is and why you need it so much.

What Sleep Is

You might think that sleep is a passive, dormant state – when your brain shuts down (or goes into sleep mode!) and only those bodily functions that are necessary for life continue to happen. This actually isn't the case. When you sleep, your brain, eyes, and some muscles can be very active.

Sleep happens when certain neurotransmitters in the brain signal that it's time to fall asleep. Once you lie down and turn off the light, your body goes through several sleep stages. Stage 1 is the lightest sleep, characterized by drifting in and out of sleep, slow eye movement, and some muscle activity. Stage 2 sleep is deeper. Eye movement stops, and brain wave activity slows. Once you move into stage 3 sleep, your brain starts to give off delta waves (extremely slow brain waves), and in stage 4, your brain gives off delta waves exclusively. Stages 3 and 4 together are known as deep sleep. After you've moved through stage 4, you might slip into rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. This is when dreaming occurs.

A full sleep cycle will last anywhere from 90 to 110 minutes, which is obviously less than a full night's sleep. You go through a few sleep cycles each night, with the length of each stage varying depending on the time of night. Most deep sleep occurs earlier in the night. By morning, you should be spending all your time in stage 1, stage 2, and REM sleep – which is what leads to those strange dreams we all have when we wake up!

Why Sleep Is Important

Put simply, sleep is necessary for life. All animals with complex brains do it, and missing sleep can be deadly. In fact, scientists studying rats have found that complete sleep deprivation can kill rats in as little as 3 weeks (as opposed to their normal lifespan of 2-3 years). Even just depriving rats of REM sleep can lead to death in 5 weeks.

In humans, missing sleep can result in all kinds of negative consequences. We've already talked about the signs of sleep deprivation in a previous post, but here's a quick review: Losing sleep can lead to weight gain, depression, increased risk-taking behavior, skin breakouts, and a depressed immune system.

With all of that in mind, you can see why it's best to put the coffee down, turn off the TV, and grab some shut-eye when you can!

How We Can Help

Since sleep is so important, it's extra important to make sure you have a mattress that allows you to get the most restful sleep possible. If your current mattress isn't doing the job, come to Mattress One to find a new one! We'll make sure you go home with the best mattress for your needs, at a price that fits your budget.

How Often Should You Flip Your Mattress?

by Shop Manager @ Ben's

For almost as long as there have been mattresses, there has been a need to flip and rotate those mattresses to ensure that they operate at peak performance and maintain their support. There is a reason that the common recommendation for buying a new mattress is every seven or eight years, and it has everything to do with how the human body leaves an impression in a mattress, regardless of how much it costs or what it is made of. Despite all of that, the newest mattresses are often are made in such a way that they should not be flipped at all. With customized layers arranged in a very specific way to provide optimal comfort and relieve stress on pressure points, flipping a mattress would mean sleeping on a rather uncomfortable, unintended surface. Yes, things are changing, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Rotating Mattresses Has Replaced Flipping Mattresses The only mattresses that really require flipping are innerspring mattresses that do not have a pillowtop on one side. Frankly, there are not a lot of manufacturers that sell those types of mattresses anymore, and here at Ben’s we certainly do not sell any that fall into that category. However, those that have not purchased a new mattress in the last few years may still have the old design and may still require a good old-fashioned mattress flip once every few months. Just because most mattresses no longer require rotation, however, does not mean that people can just plop their new mattresses onto their beds and then never touch them again. These days, certain types of mattresses perform better for a longer duration if they are rotated according to an appropriate schedule. What Mattresses Benefit From Rotation? Rotating a mattress is not particularly challenging, but it is worth knowing whether or not owners should be devoting their time and energy to doing it. All of the mattresses at Ben’s perform better from rotation, as they all are either memory foam, innerspring, or a hybrid of the two. Certain other brands that are designed to remain stationary forever do not need the occasional 180-degree spin, but the mattresses that we sell all will. How Often Should You Rotate Your Mattress? The real answer to this question will depend on which specific mattress you ultimately purchase, but the general consensus is that most mattresses will perform better over time if they are rotated once every three to 12 months. We suggest Googling your mattress once you get it home to get a better sense of a schedule for it, but once you know, get into your online calendar and set reminders to make sure you are not forgetting to do it.

Bed in a Box: How Does It Work?

by Taylor Jones @ The Drömma Bed

Shopping for a new mattress is an endeavor to take seriously. Mattresses are a major home investment, due largely to how long they need to last: the National Sleep Foundation recommends replacing your mattress every 7 to ten years. Additionally, your mattress plays a role in the quality of sleep you get, meaning what mattress you buy could have a major impact on your physical and emotional health. However, the mattress buying model is outdated. No one wants to spend their weekend in a brick and mortar mattress store, faced with an overwhelming amount of choices and pushy sales people. […]

Four Reasons You Should Finance New Furniture

by Shop Manager @ Ben's

By the standards of most American consumers, purchasing a new bedroom set or even just a new mattress is a major purchase. Knowing this, and knowing how many people in need of new furniture do not have the cash on hand to pay for things in full the day of purchase, it only makes sense that we would offer generous financing here at Ben’s. While many individuals are able to pay for their furniture over time using their personal credit card, that often comes with significant interest rates. Financing through us, though, offers convenience, simplicity, and more money left in our customers’ pockets. When shopping for new furniture at Ben’s, whether you are shopping online or in-store, consider the following things when possibly financing a purchase: You Can Pay for Furniture Over Time The biggest advantage to financing a bedroom set or a new mattress is that you do not have to pay for everything up front. These purchases can amount to thousands of dollars depending on how many items you are buying, and with generous loan terms we are able to give our customers more time to make several smaller payments instead of one big one. Not everybody can take a four-digit hit to their checking account at once, but we offer flexible payment plans to spread out the financial burden. You Won’t Have to Pay Interest Even better news is that these financing terms often come with zero interest, which means there is no cost to the customer for spreading these payments out over time. Unlike credit cards, which tack on interest from day one, the Synchrony accounts we use here at Ben’s allow for spaced-out payments that effectively work the same way as cash. You Don’t Have to Have Established Credit While having good credit is ideal when financing something, at Ben’s we do not require that customers have established credit to take advantage of financing. There are some stipulations for applications with no credit, including a required down payment in-store, proof of employment, and valid state identification. This actually can be a great way to build credit for those getting started, and you get a new bedroom set and mattress in the bargain, too! You Can Apply In-Store In some instances, consumers need to get pre-approval for loans at banks or credit unions before even setting foot into a showroom, but that’s not how things work here at Ben’s. You can apply for financing and get approved in-store the day you’re ready to buy, making it incredibly easy to space out your payments for a big bedroom set purchase. While getting a new bed is really exciting, figuring out how to pay for it isn’t always.

Waterbed Terminology Explained: Simple Word Guidance for You

by Douglas Belleville @ STLBeds

Many people decide to ditch their mattress and box spring to return to a waterbed for its natural comfort and contouring to your body. This may seem like an easy task; however, the market has evolved to include many new items. Learning the waterbed terminology will help you to make decisions on a new waterbed.…

What Are Box Springs For?

by Shop Manager @ Ben's

Did you know that the saying “Sleep tight” comes from an era long before the invention of modern mattresses? Once upon a time, people actually slept on a bed suspended on ropes that would loosen over the course of an evening. Every night before going back to bed, these people would have to pull the ropes tight to ensure the best possible support for sleeping. The invention of the box spring completely changed all that, to the point that today we hardly can imagine falling asleep without the added support that a box spring provides. Here at Ben’s, we carry a wide variety of excellent box springs, and while some people try to justify sleeping on a mattress without the extra support, the truth is that using those box springs is how the mattress manufacturers intended that we sleep. Basic Uses for a Box Spring Put as simply as possible, there are three reasons why someone would require a box spring: Support First and foremost, a box spring’s purpose is to create a flat and solid structure for the actual mattress to rest on top of. The very first box springs were just wire frames, without the wood and cloth, but today the makeup of a box spring depends a lot on what type of mattress a person purchases. For example, wood frames are more appropriate for memory foam, while standard box springs tend to work better with innerspring mattresses. Longevity Another reason why box springs are essential is that they can help preserve the longevity of the mattress itself. Without that support, certain mattresses can sag and wear out more quickly than they would have otherwise. Most manufacturers will not honor warranties on mattresses that are not used in conjunction with a box spring for that very reason, so for the benefit of the long-term use of the mattress, a box spring really can help. Ease of Use Box springs also make it easier to get in and out of bed by allowing sleepers to slide easily into their sheets because the box spring allows the actual mattress to lie at an ideal height. We even sell box springs of different heights here at Ben’s, meaning ease of use really is just a matter of finding the perfect height for a mattress et. Choosing a Box Spring With so much diversity in the types of box springs currently for sale, choosing the right one comes down to a couple of factors. For starters, finding the right height is important for the aforementioned reasons, but it also is best to buy the box spring that was designed to accompany whatever mattress you are interested in purchasing. They were designed and

The Sleep Judge

Memory foam and pillow top mattresses are two higher end categories of bedding that consumers consider when they're going for extra comfort and back pain relief. However, other than the fact that both of them fall in the luxury category, the two are quite different from each other and target sleepers with markedly different needs. Without proper knowledge of these differences, you can end up spending a wad of cash on the wrong mattress that doesn't address your comfort / pain relief needs.

Suggestions for Superior Slumber

by @ Mattress By Appointment: Latest News

Suggestions for Superior Slumber

How did you sleep last night? Did you know that your ability to sleep well at night is directly correlated with other aspects in your life? Most of us already know that technology can affect the quality of slumber; things like watching TV before bed or sleeping with the television on, keeping your phone on your bedside table (Guilty!), and those kinds of things greatly affect the quality of sleep you’re getting. There are other aspects too. Below, you’ll find several reasons why you may not be sleeping well, and some suggestions for how to change it.

Did you eat a large meal for dinner?

Eating in general raises your blood sugar levels. When you’re sleeping, your body is fasting, or abstaining from food and/or drink, and eating too close to bedtime makes you more susceptible to a blood sugar crash during the night.

Did you and your partner have a disagreement?

Who hasn’t fought with their partner at one time or another, right? Having an emotionally charged discussion or disagreement with your partner before bed raises your stress levels. Being fatigued can cause an overreaction of emotions and you may lash out at your partner as a result. If you’ve had a difficult exchange, try allowing yourself some time to unwind. Taking some time to review the conversation and gain some perspective will help you to reach a more relaxed state before turning out the light.

Do you follow a bedtime routine?

As every parent knows, having a routine incorporated before sleep is paramount. Just like children, adults can benefit from a routine before bed. Try taking a shower, brushing your teeth, or even reading a book. Having a routine can help you to become accustomed to the steps and prepare your body and mind for sleep.

Do you have a sleeping schedule?

Non-REM and REM sleep cycles are predominantly regulated by our internal biological clocks, or circadian rhythms. These typically run on a 24-hour cycle and control our sleeping and waking times as well as the biological functions that take place while we sleep. Having varying sleep/wake times, and amounts of sleep, disturb our bodies’ natural rhythms and have negative side-effects such as poor cholesterol levels and a higher body mass index, as well as greater insulin resistance compared to those who have a set sleeping schedule.

How old is your mattress?

There are some surprising ways that your old mattress can affect not only your quality of sleep, but also your health. According to studies, sleeping on an older mattress can exacerbate stress and body pain, as well as worsen allergies due to the build-up of dust mites typically residing in old mattresses. Not sleeping well? Your mattress could be the culprit. There are over 50 facilities in North American alone for recycling your old mattress.

What kind of mattress are you sleeping on?

Finding the right mattress with the proper amount of support is key to a good night’s rest. Sleeping on a mattress that sleeps hot or doesn’t relieve pressure points can have some serious consequences. When looking for a new mattress, make sure to take time to test it out to find the one that’s right for you.

Do you know how much sleep you require?

According to the National Sleep Foundation, an average adult requires 7-9 hours of sleep a night. There are factors that play into exactly how much sleep you really need and even tests online to make the determination. It’s time to see for yourself!

Are you physically active on a regular basis?

There is a very strong connection between exercise and sleep. Being physically active, especially on a regular basis, reduces stress, tires you out, and increases the duration and quality of your sleep. It’s time to get that gym membership!

Do you stay hydrated throughout the day?

How much water do you drink throughout the day? Studies show that dehydration is the number one cause of being tired during the daytime. So just imagine what it can do when you’re sleeping. Chronic dehydration reduces the amount of imperative amino acids that are used to create melatonin. Melatonin is directly connected to our natural circadian rhythms. If you’re not drinking enough water, you’re not creating enough melatonin, and this makes it difficult for your body to fall asleep and stay asleep. So, drink up!

What’s the temperature in your bedroom?

“Sleeping hot” is the number one complaint from mattress-buying consumers. According to sleep.org, the ideal temperature in your bedroom should be between 60°-67°F for choice sleep. Upon laying down, your body temperature reduces in preparation for sleep, and these recommended temperatures can help to expedite the process.

How stressed are you overall?

An inordinate amount of stress can make you more susceptible to insomnia. The question is whether the insomnia is causing the stress, or if the reverse is the case. Stress affects our bodies, thoughts, feelings, and even our behaviors, so it stands to reason that stress will also affect the amount, and quality, of sleep. Stress can prevent you from getting to sleep and from getting an adequate amount of sleep. When you’re stressed, your brain is sent into overdrive, and it can readily become a cycle, and a vicious one at that; you’re stressed so you can’t sleep, and the lack of sleep causes more stress, and so on…

Did you drink coffee after dinner?

As we all know, coffee (typically) equals caffeine and caffeine promotes energy. The benefits of caffeine, and the drawbacks, are dependent on the amount of caffeine consumed. Caffeine, specifically coffee and tea, is considered a stimulant and acts as a “adenosine receptor antagonist”. Adenosine is a substance your body creates that encourages drowsiness to help your body/mind settle down so that you can sleep. The most obvious effect is difficulty falling asleep, and one study found that caffeine can delay the timing of your circadian rhythm and this can reduce your sleep time overall.

Here’s to hoping that we all sleep better tonight!

Sleep and the Muscles

by Mattress One @ Mattress One Blog - Mattress Information & Tips

Why a Good Night's Rest Makes Such a Difference for Your Muscles

Let’s admit it: when you think of sleep and your muscles, you’re probably thinking about how you work hard during the day and feel fine, but tired, when you crash into bed at night. Then, when you wake up the next morning, your muscles are protesting everything you put them through the day before.

It’s true that muscle pain in the morning can be common, but that’s no reason to skimp on getting enough sleep – especially after a long, hard day. Whatever temporary pain you might face pales in comparison to the benefits you’ll get when you stick to a consistent sleep schedule night after night. Don’t believe us? Here are just a few ways getting a good night’s sleep helps your muscles.

Your muscles completely relax during sleep.

During your non-rapid eye movement sleep, your muscles relax, and when your sleep schedule moves to rapid eye movement sleep, your muscles go atonic. This is complete relaxation and lack of muscle tone similar to paralysis. (The exceptions to this are your diaphragm, which controls your breathing, and your eye muscles.) There’s a good reason for this atonia: if your muscles aren’t moving, you won’t move in potentially dangerous ways, like falling off the bed. Your chances of disturbing your partner are also much reduced.

Your muscles recover and regenerate when you sleep.

You might be asleep, but your body is very busy while you’re catching those z’s. Your body will naturally secrete growth hormones as you sleep. This lets your cells go to work, repairing and regenerating portions of your muscles that were strained and injured during the day. A good night’s sleep might not cure everything, but it can certainly give your body the time it needs to cure itself.

Your body uses nutrients more efficiently when you sleep.

Trying to build muscle mass? In addition to training and eating a healthy diet, make sure you’re getting plenty of sleep at night. Sleep is the time when your body can put all the nutrients you absorbed during the day to work. Because your body is completely relaxed, the nutrients can now be used to repair and build muscle mass. It’s a great way to complement your training during the day, and the best part is, you don’t have to do anything!

When you sleep, your brain recharges.

In order to meet just about any health goal, the first organ you have to pay attention to is your brain. So whether you’re actively building muscle or just trying to stay healthy and active, sleep’s recharging effect on the brain is paramount. The more alert you are, the easier you’ll find it to put in those extra reps, go for that run, or lug that box of books up the stairs.

Given how essential sleep is to building muscle and keeping your body fit and strong, it just makes sense to make sure that your mattress isn’t working against you when you try to sleep. If your mattress is lumpy, squeaky, or poking you in all the wrong places, then it’s time for a new one! We here at Mattress One would love to help you find the perfect mattress to help you meet your health goals. Visit us today to find your next mattress!

Best Cooling Mattress & Tips to Sleep Cool

by Taylor Jones @ The Drömma Bed

A comfortable cooling mattress is essential for a good night’s sleep.  According to the National Sleep Foundation, people sleep best in a room as cool as 60 – 69 degrees Fahrenheit. They suggest thinking of your bedroom as a “cool, dark cave.” Before sleep, the body’s core temperature drops. Increased core temperature at the wrong time disrupts the sleep cycle, so a mattress that is too warm can result in a raised body temperature, restlessness, and waking in the night.  So how do you choose which is best?

Sleep and the Immune System

by Mattress One @ Mattress One Blog - Mattress Information & Tips

A Good Night’s Sleep Can Keep the Doctor Away!

Now that cold and flu season is officially upon us, we’re all thinking of ways we can avoid succumbing to the latest bug making the rounds. Of course, eating healthy meals, washing your hands, and getting your flu shot are all great places to start. But did you know that getting plenty of sleep can also help you stay healthy all season long – indeed, all year long?

It’s true! Sleep is immensely important to virtually all bodily systems, and the immune system is no exception. Getting enough sleep is a simple but powerful way to keep your immune system in top form, allowing you to spend more time doing the things you love to do.

Here are just a few ways that the amount of sleep you get affects your immune system.

Lack of sleep depresses the immune system.

It’s true that the immune system is complex, with multiple moving parts. But one thing scientists have observed in multiple studies is that when a person is sleep deprived, the number of T-cells in their bloodstream goes down. T-cells are the white blood cells that seek out and destroy bacteria and viruses. When you have fewer T-cells, your immune system can’t respond as well to the germs that sneak past the body’s other defenses.

In addition to this, another type of cell, inflammatory cytokines, increase in number when a person doesn’t get enough sleep. An increase in inflammation can lead to certain kinds of tissue damage. This combines with the lack of T-cells to make a person more susceptible to coming down with any number of diseases, including colds and the flu.

Not sleeping well can reduce fever response.

Of course, nobody wants to experience a fever. It’s uncomfortable and generally miserable. But here’s the thing: fevers are the body’s way of fighting off an infection, turning up the heat to slowly let the germs cook. Many parents who have sat up with a sick child have noticed that fevers tend to go up at night. This is a good thing! The body is taking advantage of the time when a person is at rest to go about the business of fighting off an infection.

Because of this, if you do get sick, it’s especially important to get plenty of sleep. Sleeping well will help your body to fight off the infection, allowing you to bounce back faster.

There’s no need to get extra sleep to help your immune system.

If you’re already sleeping the right amount of time (seven to nine hours for adults, nine to eleven hours for teens), you’re good to go. As with so many other things in life, boosting your immune system through sleep is all about balance. You don’t have to go overboard; you just have to develop healthy habits.

And if you’re generally short of sleep? Fall is a great time to get back on a regular sleep schedule. After all, the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. You might as well use that increased darkness to get some shut-eye.

Of course, if it’s your mattress that’s holding you back from getting a good night’s sleep, know that your friends here at Mattress One are here to help. We can make sure that you have the right mattress for your sleep style and comfort level. Stop by today to find the right mattress for you!

You Say "Ultra Firm," I Say "Ultra Plush"

by Mattress One @ Mattress One Blog - Mattress Information & Tips

Let's Not Call the Whole Thing Off

You and your partner agree on so much, from the little things, like what movie to see on a Saturday night, to the big things, like what you both want in life. The only sticking point? You can’t seem to agree on a mattress, and you’re both losing sleep over it.

Relax! Here at Mattress One, we see this kind of problem all the time. We promise that having trouble finding a mattress that's comfortable for both of you doesn't mean that your relationship is doomed. It also doesn’t mean that you have to shell out for a pricey adjustable bed or make do with twin beds on opposite sides of the room, like a couple in a 1950s sitcom.

Instead, the secret to finding a great mattress for both of you is the same secret that's gotten you this far in your relationship: compromise. And we have the tools and knowledge to help you do just that.

First, find out why you can’t find a mattress that fits both of you.

Knowledge is power in many things in life, and that includes mattress-buying. The reasons why your partner wants a hard-as-a-board mattress while you prefer to feel like you're sleeping on a cloud often have to do with your sleep style. Side sleepers prefer different kinds of mattresses than back sleepers and so on. See our post on Sleep Style & Your Mattress for more details. Differences in height, weight, and body structure also play a role in determining which mattresses will feel most comfortable to which people.

Once you know why each of you prefers the kind of mattress you do, it'll be easier to narrow down your search in the hope of finding the perfect mattress.

Next, consider hybrid mattress forms.

Even if you discover that you and your partner are polar opposites in terms of sleep style and "meeting in the middle" only makes you both miserable, you still have options! For instance, a firm mattress with a pillow top could give the softness one partner craves while still providing the support the other partner needs. Memory foam toppers (especially in twin XL size) can also help one partner get softness while the other gets support. Finally, certain manufacturers of memory foam and latex foam mattresses will create mattresses that are more supportive on one side and softer on the other, allowing you and your partner to both get what you want.

If all else fails, remember this: two twins equal one king.

No, we're not talking about the plot to The Man in the Iron Mask. It’s a simple fact that if you put two twin XL mattresses together, they take up the same amount of space as a single king-sized bed. (A twin Xl mattress is 38” x 80”, while a king mattress is 76" x 80".) If your bedroom can fit a king-sized bed, this could be the way to go. Once your bed is piled with sheets, blankets, comforters and pillows, nobody will know that you and your partner are sleeping on twin mattresses – except, of course, you and your partner, both snoozing peacefully and in perfect comfort.

The best way to find the perfect mattress for you and your partner is to visit Mattress One. We have hundreds of mattresses from all the best brands. And remember, with our 180-day in-home trial*, we give you plenty of time to make sure the mattress really works for both of you and send it back to us if it doesn’t.

What is the Best Mattress for Back Sleepers?

by Shop Manager @ Ben's

Everybody has a unique way of sleeping, but in a general sense there are side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers, each of which offers its own plethora of variations. It should not come as any sort of surprise that certain types of mattresses are better for certain types of sleeping positions, but sleeping on one’s back creates a specific set of physical circumstances that calls for a very specific type of mattress. Four Things Back Sleepers Need in a New Mattress So what are these circumstances? The following are some mattress features that back sleepers should be looking for when shopping for a new bed here at Ben’s: #1 Medium-Firm to Firm While firmness is a personal preference, the science proves that sleeping on your back requires significant support to the areas where your body meets the mattress. The lower back especially requires a significant amount of support, and mattresses that are too soft allow your body to sink into the material so that your spine actually bows while you sleep. Medium-firm mattresses provide good support to your spine, and those with more serious back pain should consider purchasing a firmer mattress to ensure proper support. #2 Materials Here at Ben’s, we offer a number of medium-firm and firm mattress in all sorts of different materials, from foam to coil to hybrid, but typically the best materials for back sleepers are the foam and hybrid options. While memory foam is extremely popular (and increasingly affordable) right now, poly foam mattresses can be great for the back as well. Whatever material you choose, you want a top comfort layer of about two inches to ensure your back receives the correct amount of cradling for a good night’s sleep. #3 Cooling Properties Another feature to consider in a mattress of any material is cooling properties. Back sleepers tend to trap more heat into their mattresses, meaning beds with built-in measures to counteract that that heat can ensure the bed is a lot more comfortable all night long. Usually, these features increase air flow, which can cool down a sleeper and perhaps even allow you to save some money on air conditioning bills that come from some sleepers dealing with all the heat trapped underneath their covers. We have a number of mattresses with cooling properties here at Ben’s, so ask your sales associate for help in finding one that works for you. #4 Affordability Of course, cost is a major consideration for a mattress, too, regardless of what kind of sleeper you are. We offer several excellent mattresses that deliver cost effective comfort as well as any mattress store in Atlanta, GA. Visit any of our 14 stores or shop online

How to Choose Between a Twin and Full-Size Mattress

by Cullie Burris @ Ben's

Customers often ask us about whether or not they should purchase a king size mattress or a queen size mattress, but there is another debate in mattress sizes that exists for single sleepers. There are some key differences between a twin size mattress and a full-size mattress, and while both have their fair share of positive qualities, deciding on which one to purchase usually comes down to a matter of taste. Of course, one has to be familiar with the differences in order to to choose, which is where an exploration of these mattresses’ differences can come in handy. The following are some things to consider when deciding between a twin and a full-size mattress: Size The most obvious difference between the two mattresses is the size. At 54 inches in width, a full-size mattress actually is 15 inches wider than a twin, which is 39 inches across. While that’s plenty big for a single sleeper, a full-size bed also can be amenable for more than one person if the need requires it. Two children, for example, could share a full mattress rather comfortably. On the other hand, while 54 inches can accommodate two adults, it can be a bit of a tight fit depending on how those adults are accustomed to sleeping. Conversely, a full bed will feel more spacious for one person, especially if they have been used to sleeping in a twin. As the larger option, a full is a little more diverse for both single and double occupancy, but twin beds are perfectly appropriate for individual sleepers of all ages, as well. The Room So why would anybody choose the smaller twin mattress if the full-size one is larger and more accommodating? For starters, a smaller bedroom might not have the space to fit a full-size bedroom set comfortably. In order for a full-sized bed not to dominate the floor space in a room, it really needs to be ten feet by ten feet or larger. Anything smaller than that, and a twin-size mattress will be a better fit, allowing homeowners to fit other furniture items in the room, such as a dresser, bookshelf, or writing desk. Cost Not only that, but twin mattresses also are more affordable. To be fair, moving up to full-sized mattress is not that much of a difference, especially considering how often these beds are used and how long people own them, but for those on a tighter budget, the lower price of the twin beds may be a deciding factor. Even the accessories for twin beds, which include sheets, comforter sets, and mattress pads, are less expensive for twin mattresses, and that also can help customers decide on a size.

Foam or Innerspring: Which is Best for You

by Mattress One @ Mattress One Blog - Mattress Information & Tips

Choosing The Right Comfort Level

One of the first things you need to determine when you're shopping for a new mattress is what type of mattress you want to buy. There are a number of different types of mattresses on the market, but two of the most popular are memory foam mattresses and innerspring mattresses. Many consumers find that they'll choose between these two for their ultimate comfort.

What are the differences between these mattresses, and which is right for you? Only you can answer the latter question, but we can help with the former! Keep reading to learn more about memory foam mattresses, innerspring mattresses, and the pros and cons of each type.

What Are Memory Foam Mattresses?

Foam mattresses are constructed using certain types of memory foam to provide a supportive yet comfortable surface. There are a number of different types of foam mattresses, including memory foam (viscoelastic), polyurethane, and gel. These types of mattresses vary widely in terms of how they are constructed and the type of support, feel, and heat properties they offer.

Foam Mattress Pros

First, let's talk comfort. Many people find that since memory foam mattresses conform to the body, they produce the most comfortable night's sleep. They reduce pressure points, keep the spine in proper alignment, and can even reduce lower back pain over time. Foam mattresses can also be constructed with hypoallergenic materials, and they don't collect as many dust mites, so people with allergies or respiratory problems might find they're able to breathe more easily. Finally, memory foam mattresses are very quiet and don't transfer motion between partners.

Foam Mattress Cons

Of course, no mattress is perfect, and foam mattresses have their downsides. Foam mattresses can be unusually sensitive to climate, becoming softer in warm climates and harder in cold ones. They can also retain heat more than a traditional mattress would. The mattresses can be very heavy, though on the plus side, you don't need to flip them. Lastly, foam mattresses can often be one of the more expensive options on the market, which turns many consumers off.

What Are Innerspring Mattresses?

An innerspring mattress is often known as a traditional mattress. These mattresses use a number of steel springs to provide support for sleepers. There are many different types of innerspring mattresses, and their construction varies widely. Some have individually wrapped pocket-coil springs, while others have all the springs connected in a single unit. Innerspring mattresses also vary in the type of upholstery, padding, and other materials they use to provide comfort to the sleeper.

Innerspring Mattress Pros

Let's start with the obvious: innerspring mattresses are what most people think of when they think of a mattress, so innerspring mattresses are available just about everywhere. There are tons of options on the market, and the product is well-established. Consumers can choose the firmness that fits them best. Innerspring mattresses also tend to be less expensive than other types, although there are certainly pricier options out there if you want the highest-quality mattress money can buy.

Innerspring Mattress Cons

Even the tried-and-true innerspring mattresses have their cons. First of all, innerspring mattresses often transfer motion. If you or your partner is a restless sleeper, the other person will feel every toss and turn. The steel coils can become squeaky as time goes on, and the material supported by the coils can start to sag. Because of this, innerspring mattresses tend not to last as long – and flipping the mattress to improve longevity doesn't work with more recent models, since many modern innerspring models are built in specific layers in order to combat sagging.

Which Is Right for You?

There's only one way to know which type of mattress will work best for your needs: stop into Mattress One and try a few out! You will know the second you lie down on the perfect mattress for your needs. Visit us today to find it

Soft Mattresses vs. Firm Mattresses: What to Know

by Shop Manager @ Ben's

Humans spend approximately a third of their lives in bed. That’s why it is so important to ensure that we are comfortable once we find ourselves underneath the covers, ready and eager for a good night’s sleep. Sleeping preferences and patterns differ from person to person. But what goes into our preferences for sort or firm mattresses? There are pros and cons to each, depending on a sleeper’s anatomy and personal comfort. Soft Mattresses Without really knowing the advantages and disadvantages of either, the terms “soft” and “firm” sure make it sound like a soft mattress would be a whole lot more comfortable, but this isn’t necessarily always the case. Soft, plush mattresses can be pretty comfortable, though, especially for older individuals who may deal with joint pain and back problems, as well as for side sleepers who curl up into the fetal position to sleep. For the most part, though, it generally is agreed that soft mattresses are less likely to provide many sleepers with the support they need. Soft mattresses actually can push a spine out of alignment in some cases, and without that initial firmness the mattress can grow even softer over time. Not only that, but softer mattresses are, on average, more expensive, so unless a sleeper has deep-seeded mattress preferences or specific back and joint problems, there may be ways to find a more comfortable mattress for a more affordable price. Firm Mattresses Here at Ben’s, the overwhelming majority of the mattresses that we sell fall in the range of medium to firm. These mattresses offer a number of benefits for our customers. For starters, firmer mattresses typically force sleepers into a neutral spine position, which keeps their bodies straighter and generally offers more spinal support. They also reduce pressure on the circulatory system, which allows blood to flow better throughout the body, as well as the respiratory system, which makes breathing easier and therefore delivers oxygen more easily throughout the body. Modern sleep science has done exhaustive research on these types of things and found that firmer mattresses are just flat-out better for nighttime and daytime comfort because they force your bones to support your weight while your sleep rather than your muscles. This keeps those muscles from getting sore and allows for better circulation, and while a firmer mattress might feel a bit odd at first to someone accustomed to a softer bed, the human body adapts quickly and, over time, there is sure to be a noticeable difference in the quality of sleep you get. At the end of the day, which mattress a customer chooses comes down to their personal tastes, but in a general sense we do not recommend buying mattresses

Your Guide to Common Mattress Terms

by Mattress One @ Mattress One Blog - Mattress Information & Tips

A Quick Glossary to Help Your Mattress Shopping

Ultra-plush, firm, innerspring, hybrid – the minute you step inside a mattress store, you're bombarded with terms you may have never heard before. How are you supposed to find the right mattress for your needs when you and the sales associate don't even seem to be speaking the same language?

Worry not! We've assembled this handy list of common terms used to describe mattress comfort and construction. The next time you go mattress shopping, you can walk through the store with confidence. Now you'll know exactly what you’re talking about, which will help you find exactly what you need!

Mattress Comfort

Ultra Plush Soft: This is the softest type of mattress available. It's truly like sleeping on a cloud! Often these mattresses even come with pillowtops (an extra layer of fluffy padding) to make them even softer.

Plush Soft: These mattresses offer relaxing softness with just the right amount of support. Sometimes they too can come with pillowtops for added relaxation.

Cushion Firm: This mattress is great for someone who knows they need support but loves the added comfort of a soft mattress. Cushion firm mattresses are true middle-of-the-road mattresses, which also make them a great choice for couples with divergent sleeping needs and styles.

Firm: If you want to feel like you're floating on top of the mattress rather than sinking into it, a firm mattress is for you! These mattresses offer great support, and sleepers won’t sink too far into them.

Ultra Firm: These mattresses are about as firm as it gets. When you're sleeping on an ultra firm mattress, you can forget about sinking deep into the mattress. These mattresses are great for people who need a lot of support as they sleep.

Mattress Construction

Traditional Innerspring: A traditional innerspring mattress is made of tightly coiled steel springs covered in layers of soft fabric and padding. The springs provide support and the bouncy feel you get when first sitting or lying on the mattress.

Individual Pocketed Coils: Pocketed coils start with traditional steel springs, but wrap each spring in its own fabric coil. This helps to reduce motion transfer across the bed – great if your partner is a restless sleeper or has to get up earlier than you do.

Hybrid: Most mattresses can be placed in one of two categories: foam mattresses or innerspring mattresses. Hybrid mattresses combine both materials. They’re usually constructed with a steel support system with some type of foam used as an added comfort system.

Memory Foam: Memory foam mattresses are constructed from special viscoelastic foam. This foam conforms to your body as you sleep, cradling you and providing support in all the right places. Just like traditional innerspring mattresses, though, they can come in different firmnesses for different styles of sleepers.

Gel Foam: Gel foam mattresses make use of a gel in the construction of the mattress, either in the support system or the upholstery layers (or both). This gel can be used to provide extra support, create a softer feel, or make the mattress cooler to sleep on.

Have More Questions?

Don't worry – at Mattress One, we understand that not everyone lives and breathes mattresses the way we do! We’re happy explain all the industry terms we use in order to help you find the right mattress. So what are you waiting for? Visit us today to start shopping!

Signs of Sleep Deprivation

by Mattress One @ Mattress One Blog - Mattress Information & Tips

How to Tell if You Aren't Getting Enough Sleep

The science is in – all adults should be getting seven to nine hours of sleep a night. But with our fast-paced lives, it's hard to carve out that much time to sleep every night. Plus, everybody is different. Even if you’re doing your best to follow the best health guidelines, how can you be certain if you’re getting enough sleep?

Luckily, our bodies have some great early-warning systems to help us know if we’re not getting enough sleep. If you notice any of the following symptoms in your daily life, make sure to rework your schedule to make getting more shut-eye a priority.

A quick caveat: pulling the occasional all-nighter to finish a project from work or to soothe a cranky toddler shouldn't have any long-term effects, even if you do feel miserable the next day. We're talking about prolonged lack of sleep here, which has been linked to consequences like cardiovascular disease, obesity, and depression.

1. You're hungry all the time.

Your body has two main sources of energy: food and sleep. If you aren’t getting enough energy from one, your body will try to make it up with the other. So if you find yourself constantly reaching for that extra cupcake, it might be time to cut back on dessert and spend more time looking at the inside of your eyelids.

2. Your self-control is slipping.

Lacking sleep already makes you crave more food – especially sugary, fatty food that you should be eating sparingly. But you might find that you're becoming more impulsive and less inhibited in other ways. If you find that your temper is always close to fraying or that risky behaviors seem like a good idea, that’s a sign you should get more sleep.

3. You’re tripping, bumping into things, and acting like a klutz.

It's true that while some people are blessed with exceptional balance, others … aren't. But if you find that you’re suddenly tripping over every crack in the sidewalk and constantly bumping into things, you might simply be tired. Seemingly ordinary tasks like walking up a flight of stairs take a lot of neural processing and fine motor control. When you’re sleep deprived, you simply don’t have the energy to tackle those tasks the way you used to.

4. You’re constantly getting sick.

When you don’t get enough sleep, your body has a significantly harder time fighting off infections. This means that diseases that your body might have been able to completely clear out without you experiencing any symptoms can now turn you into a sniffling, sneezing mess. Rest is one of the best cures for illness, so take this as your sign to get some shut-eye.

5. Your skin isn't looking as good as it should.

After all, there is a reason why it’s called "beauty sleep"! When you sleep, your body produces collagen, which keeps your skin plump and smooth. Lack of sleep can also result in to more estrogen circling through your system, which can lead to acne breakouts. So if your skin is acting like a teenager's or you notice more wrinkles than you should, it's time to reevaluate your sleep habits.

Of course, once you decide to get more sleep, you might find that it’s easier said than done – especially if your mattress is working against you. Luckily, the experts here at Mattress One have the right solution for your bedtime woes. Stop in today to shop our selection of high-quality mattresses. We’ll sure to find the right mattress to send you peacefully into dreamland in no time!
