Top Two Mattress Trends of 2013:

January 21, 2014


Top Two Mattress Trends of 2013:

We take a look at the top two mattress trends of 2013:

Sleep cool mattresses:

Overheating at night is one of the primary concerns of mattress buyers, with more and more people opting to purchase a mattress that will keep them cooler at night. This has also seen a move away from synthetic fabrics in bed linens and towards cotton in order to ensure a cool night's sleep.

The shift in mattress towards cooler memory foam mattresses is one of the top trends of 2013. These mattresses often include gels that are heat sensitive, reacting to your body heat and soften in places where there is increased temperature. This creates a bed that is contoured exactly to your body shape - creating the most comfortable sleeping environment.

Safer and more ecologically friendly products:

Consumers are becoming more and more healthy and environmentally conscious - and this is extending to their sleeping patterns. After all you spend almost a quarter of your life in a bed - so why should you be sleeping on something that is stuffed with synthetic or environmentally unfriendly materials?

Synthetic materials in mattresses are often made from non-renewable resources and produce chemicals into the air and water when they are manufactured. Some less reputable mattress manufacturers cut corners in the manufacturing process and the glues and chemicals used in the mattress can leach contaminants into your home and even you while you are sleeping.

As a result of the more health and environmentally conscious sleeper, mattress manufacturers are beginning to produce mattresses and sleep related products such as pillows and duvets that contain natural products, such as renewable resources, plant fibers, and natural latex.

The ideal balance between these two trends is a plant-based memory foam mattress. Studies have shown that specific plant based memory foam mattresses can be up to 25% cooler.  It is both cooler to sleep on and better for the environment.
