  1. Is it that time of the year that you purchase new sheets? Is your old set too stained, ripped or just worn out and need a change? Most of us splurge on expensive pillows and comforters but often overlook bed sheets. When it comes to bedding, durability and quality are of paramount importance, after all, we spend nearly one-third of our lives between our sheets! Cotton and Microfiber are two popular choices when it comes to bed sheets. It is important to remember that they are very different materials, and the one for you depends on several factors. These bedding materials, each offer a different level of breathability and feel. They also differ in drying time, durability, and cost. You will need to take all these factors into account while picking the right bedding for yourself and your family. They are both very good choices, and each offers a bunch of benefits. That said, you get what you pay for. And while many people prefer cotton, premium quality microfiber sheets do not tear easily and nor does the color turn dull with repeated washing. Nowadays, there are more and more bed sheets on the shelves made from microfibers. Microfiber sheets have become rather popular, but are they the right choice for you? In this article, we compare cotton sheets and microfiber sheers to see what all the fuss is about. Feel – Many prioritize feel over durability. If the feel of your sheets is an important deciding factor for you, you are sure to love microfiber sheers. These sheets are perfect for those who love a silky feel. If your kids or partner moves around a lot at night, these sheets will let them slip and slide without becoming a tangled mess. While these sheets do not offer the crisp feel of cotton, you will love crawling into these sheets as they feel soft against the skin. On the contrary, if you are someone who prefers crisp linen, cotton is your go-to choice. Warmth – Microfiber is an excellent choice for those who tend to get cold easily as it retains your body’s natural heat. If you tend to kick the blankets at night or are prone to night sweats, cotton is a better choice for you. Since cotton is a natural fiber, it is more breathable and keeps you cooler. It also wicks moisture better making it an ideal choice if you sweat a lot during sleep. On the contrary, microfiber is a lot better at resisting stains which makes maintenance a breeze. However, remember that though microfiber sheets do resist stains better than cotton can, it can be a herculean task to get them out once they find their way in. If you accidentally spill a cup of coffee on your microfiber sheet, the cleanup is time sensitive. Unlike its natural cousin, if you wait too long to attend to the stain, it will set! Durability of Microfiber Sheets– Low-quality sheets, be it microfiber or cotton will last you only a couple of washes. While cotton sheets are subject to pilling, poor quality microfiber sheets are likely to tear in just a few weeks. High-end microfiber and cotton sheets are both quite durable. However, cotton doesn’t hold dye as well as microfiber and hence begins to fade over time. Microfiber is more resilient and is likely to remain bright and vibrant after repeated trips to the laundry. Most users will agree that cotton wears over time, thinning and piling before becoming entirely useless. Microfibers tend to deteriorate all at once – either ripping or tearing when you least expect it. Airflow – Premium quality sheets made from both cotton and microfiber are woven in a percale which is touted to be the best weave to facilitate good air flow. When comparing the percale woven microfiber to percale cotton sheets, the latter has more weight and thickness but does boast of better air flow. Microfiber sheets, on the contrary, have a thin and light feeling and yet manage to trap air within it. Cost – Whether you pick cotton or microfiber – the higher the thread count, the more expensive will the sheet be. A higher denier count means the thicker the fibers will be. The Denier rating affects the cost of a microfiber sheet just as the thread count affects the cost of cotton sheet. However, when compared to one another, cotton is a lot more expensive than microfiber since microfiber is man-made. If you are on a budget or have many beds to make, microfiber is hands down the best choice for you. Maintenance – Cotton sheets are not just more expensive too but also are more expensive to own. They are thicker and take longer to dry when compared to sheets made from microfiber. Cotton sheets can be easily washed and dried in the comfort of your home. Some of them may shrink after the first wash, but they do get softer the more often you wash them. Microfiber sheets can also be machine laundered at home and tend to shrink after the first wash much like cotton sheets. If you wash your sheets regularly, you may spend a lot more at the laundromat if you own cotton sheets. Microfiber sheets are perfect if you do not have much space to hang your sheets outside to dry and are on a tight budget and wish to reduce your laundry expensive. All in all, there are pros and cons to each of these sheets. Microfiber is a great option for people with allergies, but in the end, it all does come down to your personal preference. If you are convinced that microfiber is a better choice for you, you may consider investing in the Mezzati Luxury Bed Sheet Set. Why buy Mezzati Luxury Bed Sheet Set? The Mezzati Luxury Bed Sheet Set is one of the most affordable yet premium quality bed sheets on the market. It is available in sizes ranging from Twin to California King.

  2. When you invest in a quality mattress its imperative that it rests on a bed frame that provides proper support. For heavy set people, this can be particularly challenging because you need a bed that will support the extra weight over time. Your first step is to find a quality mattress for heavy people that will last for years and is designed for heavy people. The beds below are great choices because the will work with any mattress and all the new bed in a box brands. As a general rule, an adjustable bed is a great choice because they have steel legs and supports and will last longer than wood slat beds. Adjustable beds are designed to fit inside a traditional bed frame so if you like the look of a bed you can put an adjustable inside so that it gives you the right support and extra features such as massage. Best Budget Bed For Heavy People – Prima Sleep Most of the beds you will find on Amazon will work for people up to around 150 lbs. and even then, they won’t last all that long before you start noticing loose screws or bent legs. You often get what you pay for. And although they look nice, it’s no fun when slats fall through the frame or the frame wobbles at night as you change positions. An exception to this are some of the steel-framed beds. In particular, I like the Prima Sleep steel slat bed frame. It’s a simple construction that is super easy to assemble in just minutes and therefore portable. Another option is the Hercules from Classic Brands but the problem with frames like this is that although they are super portable, they tend to squeak. With these types of beds you also need to know that the bed can slide around so buying some double-sided tape to keep it in place would be a good idea. Best Adjustable Bed For Heavy People – Puffy Puffy makes incredibly comfortable mattresses but also makes an adjustable bed that is a really good value and is also very sturdy and durable. An Adjustable bed is a great investment for making your mattress more versatile but also provides a rock-solid foundation for years. Having an adjustable for your base ensures that you will no longer question if it’s your mattress or your bed which is sagging. You would be surprised how often mattresses get blamed for poor support when it’s actually the mattress. Best Natural Bed For Heavy People – Avocado Avocado is the most awarded and credited natural mattress online. I haven’t come across a mattress online or offline that is as intentionally designed as the Avocado Mattress. Avocado carries this attention to detail into their bed frame. The Avocado Bed Frame is a handmade frame made with 100% reclaimed wood and zero VOC sealant. It’s not cheap but it is heirloom quality. You will be able to pass this on to your kids and grandkids. This is a great choice for heavy sleepers because the slats are made with real wood! Most beds these days are made with particle board which can easily fall apart, scratch or chip. This bed just looks better and better with age. Best Retail Store Bed Frame for Heavy People – Pottery Barn We have had some Pottery Barn bed frames in the Sleep Sherpa stores and they hold up extremely well. If you are shopping Pottery Barn, West Elm or Crate and Barrel, all of these stores make great beds that will hold up well for heavy people but stay away from the mid-century modern styles. They look flimsy and because they have a minimalist style, there’s only so much material to work with. Stick with a more traditional style like the picture above and you will be happy. My Final Recommendation on Beds for Heavy People There are plenty of other brands and stores that offer quality beds for heavy people but this post gives you a good sense of what to look for. Again, an adjustable bed is always a great investment but that’s especially true for heavy set couples. If you are looking for an inexpensive option, a steel frame from Amazon will work but it will have some drawbacks as I have outlined above. By all means, stay away from cheap beds with wooden slats! They won’t hold up and you will probably end up on the ground sooner than you think. Finally, if shopping online isn’t your thing, check out some of the traditional retailer sand keep in mind that you often get what you pay for.
  3. If you’re looking for a Leesa vs Nectar comparison, this should make your decision much easier. In this post I break down all the pros and cons of each mattress to help you decide which is right for you. Both the Nectar and Leesa are great mattresses but each have a distinct feel that will appeal to different types of sleepers. There are no winners or loosers here, just clarification for you so that you get the right mattress the first time. Overview of Nectar vs Leesa Mattress The video below gives you a side by side comparison of both mattresses. As you can see in the video below, my bowling ball reacts very different on each of the mattresses. Both of these mattresses come with a generous trial period. Leesa free trial period = 100 Days Nectar free trial period – 365 Days Here’s the breakdown on prices of the mattresses Leesa mattress price = $940 (Queen Size) Nectar mattress price = $795 (Queen Size) Both of these companies offer discounts on a regular basis. Leesa tends to have a $100 off coupon making the queen size $840 and Nectar has $125 off with 2 free pillows making the price $670. There is a significant difference in price here but not so much that it would be a deal breaker if one is better suited to your needs. Leesa Mattress Construction and Materials What gives the Leesa mattress that extra bounce you saw in the video is that they use a layer of Avena foam on top. The cooling comes into play in that it is convoluted (think egg crate shaped) so that there are channels for air to circulate. 10 inches total height Top layer is 2 inches of Avena foam,which is a polyurethane foam that performs like latex Below that is a 2 inch layer of memory foam for extra comfort and pressure relief. The base layer is a 6 inch high density foam used as the support base. It is the foundation of the Leesa matttress. Nectar Mattress Construction and Materials 11 inches total height Top layer is made 1 inches of quilted foam which is sewn into the cover. This helps with airflow and gives it an initial soft feeling The support layer is made of 1 inch of 4lb. cooling gel memory foam. The transition layer is 3 inches of 3lb. cooling gel to further the transition among the layers and provide even more contouring and pressure relief. The base layer is 6 inches of high-density foam similar to the Leesa. It should be noted that the Leesa mattress is made in the USA while the Nectar mattress is made in China. However, both are CertiPUR-US Certified. Which means that the foams used in the mattresses are tested by a 3rd party to be free of harmful chemicals. Benefits of the Leesa Mattress The Leesa mattress is a very versatile mattress in that most sleepers will find it to feel great right away. The Avena foam will allow you to quickly sink into the mattress and will recover just as quickly. This means it is easy to move around on and even has some bounce as it behaves like latex. The other major benefit of the Leesa mattress is that it is very breathable. The convoluted foam and density of the top layer means it doesn’t trap as much heat as other mattresses. The Leesa also has a great Made in the USA story. The foams used in the mattress and the construction of the mattress itself are all domestic. They even have some great brand ambassadors such as Michael Phelps. Leesa has also been around a bit longer than Nectar. As of this writing, they will soon be celebrating their 3rd anniversary. Benefits of the Nectar Sleep Mattress The Nectar Mattress provides excellent pressure relief. This mattress does a very good job of conforming to your body. It provides great pressure relief and support at the same time. The quilted foam cover and layers of dense foam throughout make it very resilient mattress as well meaning that it should last a long time. The Nectar mattress is also one of the more affordable mattresses online. Given the construction and great feel it has proven to be one of the best values out there. Although they don’t have any brand ambassadors, it has been getting good feedback despite some of the shipping delays caused by large demand when the mattress was first introduced. Nectar or Leesa, Which is Best for You? If you are on the fence about which mattress to choose here are a few points to consider. If sleeping hot is your primary concern, the Leesa mattress would be a good choice. I found it to sleep a little cooler than the Nectar. However, the cover of the Nectar mattress is made with phase change technology that will draw heat away from you so it’s not to say that the Nectar sleeps hot, it’s just that the Leesa will sleep cooler. I often recommend the Nectar to people who complain about lower back soreness. I found that the Nectar provides superior pressure relief and contouring. The dense foam used in the Nectar can address certain pain points in ways other mattresses can’t. If Made in the USA and buying American is important, then Leesa is a clear winner. They even have a Team USA Gold Medalist sleeping on their mattress. Considering how fit Michael Phelps is, I’m sure he could sleep on almost anything. I think the true test may be an out of shape arthritic, elderly person as those are the people who will need a quality mattress the most. If you are price sensitive, Nectar is a more affordable option. And affordable doesn’t mean cheap. In this case you get quality and value. I think 1oo days is plenty of time to figure out if a mattress is a good fit although Nectar has raised the bar with a 365 night trial so you basically get a whole year. I live in Minnesota where the seasons are very distinct. Winter nights can get as low as minus 30 and summer nights in July can be humid and 90 so being able to test a mattress out in extremes can be important. In the end, you really can’t lose with either of these mattresses. You literally have nothing to lose by trying them out in your home. This guide was created to save you time and get you to the right mattress the first time.
  4. Goose Down vs Duck Down Which is better – goose down or duck down? This is a question that is often asked in the world of bedding products. It is an important question to consider when you are looking for a down comforter for your bedroom. As you may already know, goose down has a higher value when compared to duck down. However, this depends largely on the product – for example, a high-quality duck down comforter may be better than a mediocre goose down one. It also depends on your specific needs and your budget. Let us take a quick look at a few things about the goose and duck down to find out which one is a better choice for you. Is There a Major Difference Between Goose and Duck Down? This is another important question to ask when checking out down comforters for your bed. The answer is no. Both types of down provide equal insulation, and they both share the same essential structure that makes down an incredible insulator. If there is a difference between a goose down comforter and a duck down one, it would be that the duck down blanket has about 87% of the insulating power that the goose down comforter has. Goose down and duck down have the ability to maintain their warmth and loft for many years, maybe even decades, if they are well cared for. It does not matter which bird provides the feathers or down for your comforter. The secret is to find a well-made down comforter from a reputable manufacturer and take proper care of it to ensure that you always have a cozy and luxurious sleeping experience for many years. Here is a look at a few important things you should know before deciding between goose and duck down: Durability Generally speaking, regardless of fill power, there is no major difference between the durability of goose down and duck down. Part of how durable they are depends on the down’s fat and oil content – there is an inherently higher content of oil and fat in some birds. Moreover, down, whether goose or duck, is an organic product and will vary from one season to another because of several factors including weather, bird condition, feed, etc. To ensure warmth-trapping – keeping the down resilient and pliable – there needs to be a certain percentage of fat and oil. If the down is “over washed” during processing and an excessive amount of oil and fat is removed, it can become dry and brittle. This makes it easier to break down, which in turn decreases the fill power of the down. High-quality down comforters have properly processed down to optimize performance and durability, irrespective of whether it is goose or duck down. Odor As mentioned earlier, down is a natural product. Although a certain percentage of fat and oil is necessary to ensure its resilience and pliability, the presence of these substances also plays a part in the scent of the down. People with a highly acute sense of smell may notice a slight odor, even when the down is in the cleanest condition. Because there is a difference between the feeding habits of goose and duck, there may be minor differences in smell between goose and duck down. This is due to the scent in the oil content, which is necessary to make the down resilient. You should look for a down comforter made with DWR-treated down – you will find that the odor of these products is minimal. Higher Fill Powers Birds, whether goose or duck, that are older more mature tend to provide down with higher fill power. When a bird lives long, it’s down cluster becomes more developed. Furthermore, to ensure that they achieve the fill power they desire, processors sort through large down clusters, small down clusters, feathers, etc. to produce down of a certain fill power and content. Currently, the highest goose down fill power is roughly 1,000 FP. However, this is available in very limited quantities, and usually at extremely high prices. Comparatively, the highest-end and most expensive down, Eider duck down has an anecdotal rating of up to 1,200 FP. The more common fill power range for goose down and duck down is between 450 and 850 FP. As a result of improvements in the sorting process that filters out extra small down clusters and fibers, high-end 850-FP duck down has become more accessible in recent years. Color Goose and duck down are both available in white and mottled grey. If you look at things from a historical point of view, the bedding industry desires white-colored down more, which is mainly due to the fact that manufacturers commonly use white in bedding fabric and prefer to hide the presence of down. Apart from a visual difference, white and grey colored down do not have a difference in performance – meaning that one is not warmer or more durable than the other. The Conclusion Both goose and duck down can insulate equally efficiently when you take variables such as quality of fill, fill power, processing, etc. into account. Down quality has a direct connection to everything from the bird’s feed during its lifetime, to the length of its life, to the method of washing that is used in processing. When you are looking for a great down comforter, you will need to choose between, goose and duck down. It is a good idea to know what goes into the manufacturing process to make sure that you make the best choice. Keep in mind that although goose down is considered superior to duck down, there are countless high-quality duck down comforters available in today’s market. They are, more often than not, more affordable and you get the same insulation that a goose down comforter provides. Whether you choose goose or duck down, make sure that you pick the best quality down comforter for your bed. You can have a cozy, luxurious sleeping experience and make sure that you get restful, relaxing sleep every night, no matter what time of the year.
  5. The only time you get for yourself is when you are sleeping. This is when you are free from your worries, stress, anxieties, and not to mention, exhaustion from a long day of work. Since this is the only time for you to relax, how do you make the most of it? Well, a great idea is to have a down comforter to cuddle up with. No matter what time of the year it is, a down comforter is sure to give you a relaxing sleep and make sure that you are well rested for the next day. What Makes A Down Comforter? A down comforter is made of three things: Construction: This refers to how the down comforter is made and sewn together. It is important to keep in mind that these comforters are filled with animal feathers. This may trigger allergies for some users. This is why different manufacturers have different ways to make these products. You may find that some comforters look fluffier and cozier, but they may not have been thoroughly sanitized – this is a major reason that allergic reaction may be triggered. On the other hand, you will find other comforters that look and feel cozy and luxurious, and are also hypoallergenic. It all comes down to how the manufacturer constructed the comforter. Fill: This refers to the type of feathers and down that is used in the comforter. Needless to say, this is the most important component as it determines the comforter’s performance. There are two options when it comes to the fill that comforter manufacturers use – duck down or goose down. Comforters that have a goose down fill are more expensive than those with duck down. However, you should keep in mind that comforters with duck down provide an equal amount of insulation as goose down comforters. However, goose down and feather are larger and fluffier, so comforters with this fill are cozier and more luxurious and provide better performance. Fabric: The texture, quality and feel of a comforter are determined by the fabric that it is made with. Down comforters are most commonly made with four fabrics: Damask: Outstanding quality that comes at a great price Cambric: Uses basic weaving to provide excellent value Batiste: Lightweight and provides high durability Sateen: Offers a soft feel with high sheen How to Choose the Best Down Comforter With the right comforter, you can add a special touch to your bedroom and have a soft, fluffy and luxurious bed to sleep on every night. So how do you make sure that you have the right down comforter? With a few tips in mind, you can choose the best down comforter for your bedroom: Choose the right design and size: Before you start checking out comforters, the first thing you should do is figure out the size of bedding you need. For instance, if yours is a queen-sized bed, your comforter should be a queen-sized one too. However, you could also treat yourself to a king-sized comforter to extra comfort and luxury. A larger comforter also gives you that extra length and width for coziness and warmth during the cooler months. Comforters come in different designs that you can choose from as well. For instance, you will find some comforters with box-stitch pockets that are placed for holding down and feather fillings firmly in place, while others are reversible and colorful, which is superb when you want interesting accent pieces in your bedroom. Choose the ideal weight: The best down comforter for, you might be a medium-weight quilt that can be augmented with extra blankets or an all-season type that comes with a mid-level tog rating. You may, alternatively, prefer a lightweight down comforter for late spring through early fall. You can also pick a winter-weight quilt for the colder months. To get the ultimate experience in luxurious sleeping, you might want to consider adding a featherbed to your bedding during the winter months. Choose the best filling: Lightweight comforters usually contain a mixture of duck and feather down, which provides both warmth as well as cost-effective construction. Nowadays, there are also feather fiber, down fiber and down-alternative fillings that you can choose from. Down alternatives like foam work quite well with feather fillings and create a lighter, loftier comforter. If you suffer from allergies, you should consider buying a hypoallergenic comforter – these have a special down-resistant shell fabric that keeps the feathers firmly inside the quilt, thereby reducing your overall potential for sneezing. Check out ultra-light down alternative comforters: As mentioned already, there are a few down alternative comforters that are made to feel like the real thing. If you cannot tolerate down, these blankets may be the best option for you as they still provide the luxurious, cozy experience you get from down comforters. Polyester batting or fiberfill pieces can give you the light, warm feel of goose down and feathers. Ultra-light down alternative comforters are hypoallergenic, naturally resistant to dander and dust and not to mention, conveniently washable and dryable. You will have no problem finding the best down comforter for your bed, no matter what your personal taste or style. There are numerous amazing choices out there these days. Apart from the natural goose and duck down and feather comforters, you can also choose from a wide array of down-alternative materials that are excellent for people with allergies and other problems. You do not have to compromise on comfort and luxury with a vast selection of down comforters that are available nowadays. If you are looking for a relaxing, comfortable bed to sleep in every night, you should definitely consider getting a down comforter to cozy up with. You can forget about sleepless nights when you have a fluffy, cozy comforter in your bedroom. With the best down comforter, you can make sure that you get restful sleep every night and say goodbye to stress, anxiety and fatigue. Wake up feeling refreshed each morning after a comfortable sleep with your down comforter.
  6. What’s worse than making the bed? Keeping the sheets and covers in place the whole day. For those who hate making the bed, having to put the sheets and covers back in their proper place several times throughout the day can be quite a chore. Unfortunately, bedding tends to get all tangled or end up in a mess on the floor. Not only does this look unpleasant but also makes for additional work when making the bed. Even those who do not dislike making the bed can get frustrated if the sheets and blankets keep tumbling down to the floor throughout the day and during the night. Keeping the bedding in place is the key to a tidy bed. Even if the sheets and blankets do not slip off on their own, several people are in the habit of kicking off the sheets and covers during the night. When bedding comes into contact with the floor, it gets dirty and requires more frequent washing. Weighted Blanket to Prevent Slipping There are a few ways to prevent bedding from slipping off the bed without spending a fortune. One of the most popular ways to achieve this is by using weighted sheets. In recent years, weighted sheets have become known for the ability to alleviate symptoms of insomnia and anxiety and aid in more restful sleep. But heavy sheets and blankets have long been used for preventing the bedding from slipping off. To achieve this, you need a blanket or top sheet that’s heavier than the rest of the bedding. The heavy weight of the blanket or sheet helps keep the bedding from slipping off. What we now know as a weighted blanket is actually a sensory blanket filled with plastic pellets used for insomnia, anxiety, and autism. These blankets are expensive than regular blankets. But for keeping your bedding in place you do not need these sensory blankets sensory blankets. A regular blanket that is significantly heavier than the rest of the bedding can work just as well in keeping the rest of the sheets in place. Choose the Right Materials Regardless of the type of top sheet or blanket that you choose, special attention should be paid to the materials. There are a lot of people who are fond of the silky, luxurious bedding materials, such as satin and silk. In places like hotels and resorts, these silky materials are found all over, because they are supposed to lend a stylish and luxurious touch to the bedroom. People often use these materials for their regular bedroom decor. There is no doubt that silk and satin are more stylish and attractive than fabrics like cotton or wool. But unfortunately, these silky materials are also notorious for sliding off the bed. Instead, choose cotton, linen or flannel sheets, duvet covers, and quilts, avoiding any fabric that is shiny and silky to touch. When cotton, flannel, and linen are washed regularly, they keep becoming softer but not slippery. If you want to give a luxurious finish to your bed, you can choose fabrics like cashmere or chenille. These fabrics are often used to make chunky blankets that can also be used as a top sheet or a throw. These fabrics offer the softness of satin or silk while the chunky knit adds weight and keeps them in place. If you still prefer satin or silk sheets and blankets, choose a fitted flannel sheet on top. The friction that is created between the silky sheets and the flannel top sheet keeps the bedding in place. Keep It Tucked In Another easy and effortless way to keep bedding from slipping off is to tuck the edges of the sheets or blanket underneath the mattress or the box spring. Sheets or blankets that are secure are less likely to slide off or move around and also require less time and work to make the bed in the morning. Regardless of whether the sheet is heavy or light, keeping it tucked under the side of the mattress can prevent it from moving even when you toss and turn in bed. Use Bedding Straps/Suspenders Keeping bedding secure is a foolproof way to prevent sheets and blankets from sliding off. This can be done by using bedding straps or suspenders. Straps or suspenders provide bedding with an additional layer of security. Once the sheets and blankets have been tucked into place, the mattress should be lifted at the corner at the foot of the bed and clipped to the suspenders crosswise along each corner. If you clip them crosswise or diagonally, the blankets remain tucked without having to run an entire suspender along the foot of the bed. If you buy high-quality bedding straps, they are capable of attaching to more than one layer and can be used to hold together the sheets, blanket, and quilt at the same time. This not only removes unnecessary bulk at the foot of the bed but also provides a neat, hassle-free solution to keeping the bedding in place. Make the Bed The unfortunate truth is that even the best-made bed becomes messy by the end of the night. Therefore, you cannot expect your well-made bed to last forever and stop making your bed every morning. More often than not, sheets and blankets tend to slide off a bed that’s disheveled. To make your bed the right way, first spread the sheets and then tuck the edges underneath the mattress, folding the corners over and tucking them along the sides. This process should be repeated with the blankets. The heavier items should be placed on top of them to keep the layers from sliding off. Don’t forget to tuck the edges and use straps to keep the layers together. While weighted or heavy blankets do keep the bedding in place, they aren’t the only solution. Using the right fabrics, clipping the layers together, and making the bed the right way every morning are also equally effective in keeping the bedding from sliding off the bed.
  7. The new Spartan mattress from Brooklyn Bedding is a luxury performance mattress that utilizes some of the best foams, fabrics and coils to create a sleeping surface that provides maximum contouring, support and recovery. This mattress sets itself apart from the rest of the hybrid mattress pack incorporating a cover made with Nanobionic technology. As I understand it, this is similar to Celliant technology. Both are registered with the FDA and can make a claim that they turn body heat into waves of energy to promote faster recovery and better sleep. Since this technology is part of the mattress, you reap the benefits night after night without having to think about it. The Spartan is quite a bit higher than many of its hybrid competitors at $1,999 before discounts, but the quality is apparent throughout. Overview of the Spartan Mattress Here’s a quick video overview of some of the main benefits of this mattress. It has a distinct looking cover with handles along the sides. Unboxing the Spartan Mattress Your Spartan mattress will arrive in a box like the one below. It is made by Brooklyn Bedding, an Arizona mattress manufacturer. As you can see below, the mattress comes roll packed. It requires heavy machinery to roll a mattress this tight. This is the mattress out of the box but still in the packaging. You can see where the coils are towards the bottom. These will spring to life quickly. The picture below was taken just minutes after opening the mattress. It is basically ready to sleep on. The wrinkles around the edges will go away and of course you won’t see them with sheets over the mattress. There is some smell to this mattress but not too bad. Construction of the Brooklyn Bedding Spartan Mattress Below are the construction details of the mattress as listed on their website. Three levels of firmness let you decide the level of support you need. An elite performance top utilizes Nanobionic® technology, registered with the FDA, to transform your body’s heat into waves of energy—reflected back to you through the medium of fibers, helping to enhance faster recover and promote quality of sleep. A 1.5” top layer of patented CopperGel Energex™ foam provides responsive contouring with targeted pressure point relief and the highly conductive, antimicrobial properties of copper. A second 2” layer of hyper-elastic TitanFlex™ foam provides cloud-like comfort with immediate response technology that adjusts to your body each time you move. A patented phase change molecule surface infusion of TitanCool™ maintains body temperature at an ideal 88 degrees. A third 1” Swirl Visco-Elastic Memory Foam layer provides enhanced contouring and deeper compression support with added cooling. An 8” base of up to 1,189 individually encased Quantum™ Edge coils delivers ultimate pressure point relief while decreasing motion transfer. A 1” high density foam base adds durability to the mattress while reinforcing individually encased coils as they compress. Delivered in a box, allowing for easy transportation from your door to your bedroom. Proudly custom made in the U.S.A. with a 10-year warranty. Offered with a 120-night risk free trial. How Much Does the Spartan Mattress Cost? Here are the latest prices as listed on their website. Size Retail Price Twin $1,399 Twin XL $1,449 Full $1,699 Queen $1,999 King $2,399 California King $2,399 My Spartan Mattress Findings Right out of the box you will notice the distinct look of the matttress. Don’t let the dark color discourage you from purchasing. After you put a mattress protector over it, you won’t see the dark color through the sheets. Also, you will still get the benefits of the Nanobionic fabric through the mattress protector and sheets. Here you can see the handles stitched into the side if you would like to rotate the mattress. I recommend rotating every other month, especially if you sleep with a partner with that is signficiantly heavier or lighter than you. Here’s a pic of the cover. The fabric has some stretch to it so you can sink into the layers of foam. Below is my 14 lb. bowling ball on the mattress to illustrate sinkage. There is a good amount of sink with this mattress which makes it great for side sleeping. Here you can see how the foam layers start to sink with the bowling ball. This mattress will have bounce given it has a coil system but they are pocket coils so they don’t transfer motion. Also, the top layers of foam absorb most of the impact when dropping my bowling ball. In the video below you can see in more detail how each layer reacts. What surprised me was that the foam is quick to recover but still feels like a denser foam. When I laid on the mattress I had really good contouring. My Brooklyn Bedding Spartan Mattress Recommendation The Spartan mattress sets itself apart from the pack of other performance mattresses in that it is able to incorporate all the latest foam and fabric technology to create a great feel. Aside from the benefits you get from the Nanobionic technology, it just feels like a well-made mattress. If you want to get the contouring of a dense foam with less heat retention and much more responsiveness, this mattress is a great choice. You will sink into this mattress a bit and you get a nice cradling sensation that is perfect for side sleepers. While you certainly pay a perimium, this mattress should have a good lifespan and in my opinion is a solid investment.

  10. As I will be custom-making my dining table, therefore I'm selling the $500 deposit I placed for the Cellini $3999 home package that consists of the following 3 items: 1. A sofa - selection of leather and fabric 2. A Dining set ( consists of table and chairs) - selection of a variety of design and materials 3. Queen size mattress w/ bed frame There is flexibility in terms of 3 items you can select. For example, if you do not require the dining set, you can swapped for tv console or coffee table etc. I have placed a deposit of $500 for the package (so the balance is $3499) and I'm willing to let it go for $400 (price negotiable). Note that this package is the most worthwhile package so far from Cellini (if you are familiar with their products). This package has since ceased, and you will be the last person who is able to get hold of it. Interested buyers pls pm me to discuss further.
