4 Considerations for Your Next Luxury Mattress
High-end cars, designer handbags, vacation homes—these are the types of things that come to mind when we think “luxury.” They’re items that are gorgeously crafted and beautifully built. They’re desirable and of course, expensive. It’s safe to say that most people don’t view a mattress as a luxury item, but as a necessity that’s simply there. But there’s more to this item than meets the eye.
You’re right—a mattress isn’t a luxury item in the sense that it’s not an extra expense we simply want but don’t need. We don’t need a Mercedes, a Chanel bag, or a beach house. However, everyone needs a mattress. Everyone needs rest and good health.
A mattress should be an investment with long-term value. It should be comfortable, durable, safe and yes, even luxurious. Quality sleep is crucial to your health and overall happiness. It keeps you motivated, energized, and ready for the day’s challenges.
So, what should you keep an eye out for when shopping for luxurious sleep? Keep reading.
1. Luxurious Latex
The core of your mattress is of utmost importance since it will determine how comfortable the mattress will be, and how long the mattress will last. There’s nothing luxurious about a lumpy mattress that calls it quits after only a year. One must invest in something exceptional in order to get the best results.
Natural latex is safe, supportive, and incredibly comfortable.
2. Customize for Supreme Comfort
There’s nothing luxurious about a one-size-fits-all mattress. It’s not designed with your needs in mind, but simply stocked up and ready to ship to a million households. These mattress companies never ask for an individual’s specific pain issues or concerns when mattress shopping. There’s little or no flexibility.
Lifekorganic mattresses are customizable, which means that you choose the exact latex densities that you want in your mattress, so that it’s truly made just for you. You can choose from ultra plush to firm options.
You can even have a split configuration so that your partner gets what he/she wants, and you get what you want. Compromise, while a beautiful thing, isn’t necessary here.
3. Pure, Organic Materials
It’s important to research both what’s in your mattress as well as what encases it.
While organic natural latex is the main star of our organic mattresses, our casings are also worth noting. Our organic casings are made with certified organic cotton and certified organic wool batting.
We’re not a fan of pesticides, which is why we opt for soft and cozy organic cotton. The reason why we use organic wool is because it acts as a natural flame barrier, so there’s no need for us to use toxic chemical flame retardants.
4. Plush Pillow Tops
If you want to really treat yourself, add a topper to your Lifekind mattress. A topper adds an extra hint of softness to your current mattress, gently cradling your pressure points as you doze off.
Organic or Untreated Wool:
Wool offers many healthy sleep benefits making it an excellent choice for a natural mattress topper.
First of all wool absorbs and releases moisture, moving sweat away from the body. It helps prevent that cold, clammy feel. It’s also the best thermal-regulating fiber there is. Wool helps you maintain a comfortable body temperature throughout the night. Another plus, you won’t have to worry about dust mites – wool naturally deters them.
Look for a wool topper made with organically processed or untreated batting, wool fiber that is free of harmful chemicals and toxic flame retardants. The cover should be made of certified organic cotton, tufted or stitched to keep the wool batting from shifting.
Wool is one of our favorite materials to use because of its natural ability to regulate temperature by promoting air flow. It also has the perfect amount of softness. It adds that extra hint of cushioning while still offering support. It’s a great choice for someone who doesn’t want to sink too much into their mattress.
Organic or Natural Latex:
A mattress topper made of pure natural latex provides cushioning pressure relief and consistent support over time. It’s resilient with a supple feel and retains its shape and support for many years. Additional comfort features you’ll love: natural latex breathes and deters dust-mites.
Look for organic or natural latex (real rubber) toppers, processed without synthetic fillers or chemical coatings. A good quality cover is made of certified organic cotton quilted with a thin layer of wool, which acts as a natural flame retardant.
