In a world where time is limited, sleep is often the first thing to be sacrificed in order to get things done. There are very few people who can honestly say that they prioritize as much as they probably should when it comes to getting restful sleep every night. In many cases, it is far more important, particularly if you have a busy life, to have a good mattress in Calgary than it is to have a new car or a bigger house.
So why do so many of us get a new vehicle every few years but cling to our mattresses for a decade or more? We blame advertising and consumerism. A twenty-year-old car just won’t sell as well on the lot like a shiny new one, but the average mattress is pretty much ready for the trash by age ten.
This all comes down to how much you value your investment in the future of your physical well-being. If you spend eight or more hours every night on a subpar mattress, it’s time to start thinking about an upgrade. From there, you’ll need to decide on whether or not you’re willing to shell out more than the average price of a new car for one of these five products.
The following are the top five mattresses available in terms of durability and quality. There are cheaper options out there, but when it comes to your health, why skimp?
Five Mattresses You Have to Have
#5 – The Bear Mattress
The Bear mattress is a newcomer to the industry, and we must admit we were hesitant at first because the price point (just over $1,000 for a queen) seemed too good to be true. After doing some research and talking with their extremely helpful customer service team, however, we were hooked – and we’re not the only one. They offer a 120-night sleep trial, which is about standard these days, but what is different is that when they say you can return it if you don’t like it or for any reason at all, they really mean it.
#4 – Loom & Leaf
The next product on the list is a bit more expensive – the queen-size runs around $1,500 – but it is well worth the extra money. You can actually try it for one hundred days and return it if you don’t like the feel. Loom and Leaf also offer a full ten-year warranty, which is unheard of in this industry.
#3 – Saatva
Saatva is another newcomer with plenty to offer. They have received an average of 4.8 out of 5 stars from over 1,400 reviewers on Amazon, so the company must be doing something right! Their mattresses are 100% made in the USA and are delivered to your door at a low rate. It’s an added bonus that there is hardly any wait time – you can have the mattress of your dreams in as little as 48 hours.
#2 – Brentwood Home
The final two on this list also happen to be some of the oldest companies still around, both having been in business since the early 1950s. The Brentwood Home mattress rarely has any major problems from one release to the next, so if you know what you’re getting into when it comes to firmness and size, this is a brand worth considering. You can’t go wrong with a classic.
#1 – Tempurpedic
As many of you may already know, Tempurpedic is a top-of-the-line choice that has been around for decades. There’s a reason they have such a strong reputation. It’s because they never let their standards by slipping. It doesn’t matter if it’s a single product or an entire warehouse full of inventory. They inspect everything before it leaves the premises. This attention to detail ensures that you get exactly what you’re looking for, no matter what your preference happens to be.
The biggest benefit of purchasing a Tempurpedic mattress is that they offer multiple firmness levels in most big-ticket items. Choosing between two sets of sheets can be tough enough, but imagine having to make that same decision between two mattresses! We sleep hot, so it’s important to me to have something breathable. If you’re like my husband and need something more firm, however, they offer both options as well. No matter how picky you are about the little details, almost everyone can find their perfect match with this brand.
