Switching to a Foam Mattress

19th December 2013

Do you get up in the morning feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day? Or does every morning find you apprehensive of rolling out of bed because you’ve become accustomed to minor aches and pains or you just feel like you didn’t sleep as well as you could have? If these scenarios sound familiar, you might be in need of a new mattress. Keep reading for one of the best alternatives.

Memory foam has turned a lot of heads in recent years. One of the main reasons is because it’s simply something new. For years people have only ever heard of or experienced spring coiled mattresses or some version thereof.

Foam mattresses provide something completely different though. Whether it’s a natural latex mattress or the memory foam variety, you’ll notice a change the moment you lie down. That’s because foam does a far superior job of disbursing your weight. This makes for not just more support, but better support. Springs that push back unevenly due to your weight being spread out the same way, can cause the kind of tension you feel when you awake. It can also make staying asleep difficult as your body naturally twists and turns to find relief.

If you can’t afford a standard queen memory foam mattress at the moment, try a foam sheets. They’re much thinner, but also more affordable, and will give you an idea of what you’re missing out on.

Keeping Your Bed Comfortable

17th December 2013

Is there anything better than a night of uninterrupted, refreshing sleep? As we get older and the responsibilities pile up, few things can make our day as much as ending it on a nice comfortable mattress. It’s a sad day, then, when we realize that our mattress just isn’t doing the trick anymore.

Fortunately, there’s never been a better time to be in the market for a new mattress. More than ever, technology is focused at helping make the eight hours we spend sleeping every night as comfortable and rewarding as possible.

Take mattress foam, for example. It used to be that just about any mattress you bought had the exact same feel. It was made from a combination of padding it metal springs. While this was the best you could hope for for a long time, it seems like manufacturers simply became comfortable with their ability to make you feel comfortable.

Luckily someone wizened up. Foam is far better than springs because it more evenly displaces your weight. It also doesn’t push back in the same harsh manner springs do. The result is waking up in the morning after a night spent with less twisting and turning. If you sleep on the road or just can’t afford a foam mattress at the moment, consider foam inserts. They’ll offer many of the same benefits at a far more affordable price.

Foam for Outdoors

25th November 2013

Being outdoors is great. In fact, many studies confirm it has actual health benefits, in terms of exposure to the sun and natural sounds. Of course, one great thing about the times we live in is that we can enjoy the outdoors with the help of modern day amenities. Think how difficult it would be to simply take in a beautiful afternoon if we didn’t have furniture to help. Thanks to these furnishings though, time outside doesn’t need to be spent without comfort.

Seat cushions play a major role here. Most of us would prefer not to simply sit on cold hard metal or rough wood, after all. So we put cushions over these materials to provide comfort and support.

Outdoor foam is what makes this possible. Without outdoor foam, our cushions would have no give, but they also wouldn’t be able to push back the right way either. Foam meant for the outdoors is different than the indoor variety though, in that it is designed to take on the elements without falling apart. Larger cells make it more water-resistant and it is made from antimicrobial materials so you don’t get any unwelcomed guests.

Despite how well-designed foam is for the outdoors, it’s still important to do your best to maintain it. Clean it regularly and, when the weather gets really bad, bring it in from the outdoors.

Everyone needs a mattress a for a good night’s sleep. In fact, it’s hard to imagine a time when a mattress wasn’t the standard for going to bed at night. For most of us, though, the idea of a mattress has become quite old fashioned. We think of a box full of springs with a little added cushion on top. Thankfully, technology is catching up to the way we sleep and has provided us with much better choices. If you want to take your sleep to the next level, consider a different kind of mattress

For many the right best choice is a latex mattress. Canada has many options available, but they all have a few things in common. A latex mattress is extremely comfortable for one. It also breathes better than standard options. This makes it even more comfortable during summer months when you just want a nice, cool surface to lie on.

Another popular option is foam. Canada also has a wide variety to choose from in this variety as well. Foam provides a more consistent form of support as the entire mattress responds to your body’s unique weight and figure. As you move, the foam adjusts and moves with you.

Whether you ultimately decide on foam, latex or something else altogether, it’s worth exploring your options. You spend eight hours a day on top of your mattress, you might as well make them the best they can be.

New Life with New Cushions

14th September 2013

Sometimes it doesn’t make sense to just throw out old furniture. Whether it be a prized family heirloom, or a lucky sofa that you just can’t let go of, there are times when throwing it out gets thrown completely out the window. When that time comes, you need to be prepared to overhaul your furniture instead of replacing them outright and making a plan of action is a great idea to help reduce wasted time, and more importantly, wasted money.

First, you must decide if you will keep the exterior of your old furniture, evaluate the fabric of the piece and assess whether or not it needs a trip to the upholstery shop. Second, you must replace the sofa seat cushions with new ones or, in the event you will be keeping your old upholstery, having a set of replacement cushions made and inserting them into the old covers. Lastly, you must give the entire piece a good and thorough clean-up to make the piece looking, and smelling like new. Not only will this last step be beneficial to the looks and smell of the piece, but it will also help safeguard the health and well-being of you and your family by getting rid of dirt and allergens that may be hiding in the piece.

Next time you’re faced with a furniture dilemma, remember that sometimes, overhauling can help you save a lot of time and money, as well as saving a prized possession from finding its way into the garbage.

Old things we own give us immense psychological comfort. The feeling of having something familiar close by keeps us planted to something we are comfortable with. This is clearly demonstrated by the tendency to have an old ‘blankie’ for kids; and maybe this is a similar phenomenon when adults stick to their old furniture as well.

While keeping old furniture may give you psychological comfort that may sometimes feel physical, make no mistake, old sofas do not make for good sofas. Typically, old sofas have flat cushions which give less of a bounce translating to less comfort and more difficulty when standing up. Old cushions are also potential breeding grounds for pests such as cockroaches, lice and ticks. Sitting on poorly padded chairs may cause lower back problems such as chronic pain and scoliosis as well. On top of all of these, old cushions look horrible and make your home look ragged.

It is understandable that while old furniture may no longer be physically the best, the sentimental value attached to some of them may be too much to make replacement acceptable. One simple way to breathe new life into an old and trusted couch is to simply reupholster and replace the cushions. Sofa foam is typically removable through a zipper on the sofa cushion case for cleaning and replacing which makes it easy to change. Keep your favorite sofas by getting a replacement cushion filling for your trusty home companion. High quality replacement foam is widely available in stores and online.
