How is a Luxury Mattress Different?

You need a new mattress. This much you know. There seems to be so many options. Between price range, comfort feel, brands, materials, and sizes, it seems like there are endless possibilities. There can’t really be that big of a difference, right? Wrong!

When it comes to buying a new mattress, you get what you pay for. While there’s certainly nothing wrong with finding a great deal and looking for the most value possible, shopping for a cheap mattress will result in buying a vastly different product than a high-quality, luxury mattress. Our society loves getting the items you want as quickly as possible, for a price that is as cheap as possible. While there’s no shame in wanting to stay within a budget, you would be making a big mistake to put a low price point over quality when it comes to your mattress. There’s one thing a cheap, quickly-made mattress can’t deliver: a deep, healthy sleep experience, at least not the way the best luxury mattress can.

Advantages of a Luxury Mattress?

Is a luxury mattress really that special? Yes! And here is why:

Luxury mattresses are made by expert craftsmen, not machines.

No detail is spared on a premium PranaSleep mattress. Every PranaSleep mattress is proudly made in the USA at one of their state-of-the-art factories. These mattresses are thoroughly scrutinized at each stage of production, culminating in a rigorous final inspection that ensures only the finest craftsmanship is accepted before your mattress is readied for the journey to your home.

Beyond PranaSleep, Vispring, Stearns & Foster, and Aireloom are handcrafted as well.  Aireloom’s master craftsmen have poured years of dedication into the “art of mattress-making.” The result is you being able to experience a sleep that some say is unmatched by lesser, cheaper options. Not only is each Stearns & Foster mattress built by Certified Master Craftsmen, they’re made in a dedicated luxury cell. This means that no other models can be built there. From hand stitching to hand signatures, their craftsmanship reflects the history of quality behind the name Stearns & Foster. Vispring is truly a step above the rest. They fill, finish and stitch by hand, making every bed exactly the way you want it. They have been doing this for over a century, so you can rest easy knowing they are doing it correctly. 

Luxury mattresses will stay in pristine condition longer.

Luxury is built to last! With nearly all items, a cheap price correlates with cheap quality. A mattress is no different. A cheap mattress may feel okay on the first night, but in a few months or years, you’ll be feeling lumps, bumps, sags, and springs. You want your mattress to be built to last at least eight years, if not longer. This means choosing a mattress from a company known for superior craftsmanship and a fantastic warranty they truly stand behind. Vispring mattresses are backed by the manufacturer’s 30-year warranty. The best of the best will stay in top shape for decades to come. They know it, and you should know it too!

The best luxury mattresses are made with the world’s best materials.

Luxury is about exceptional comfort, which comes from the best materials possible. PranaSleep luxury mattresses feature varying densities of Talalay latex foam- providing core and comfort layers with firm, yet supple support that are uniquely comforting and conforming to your body’s individual curves. Their mattresses also feature other luxurious materials to enhance every aspect of your sleep experience. For instance, the PranaSleep Om Collection features natural silk, wool, and cashmere, as well as a core and comfort layers composed of this 100% natural Talalay latex. Vispring’s top mattresses are hand-filled with some of the world's finest natural materials, like British wool, loose British horsetail hair, Shetland wool blended with cashmere and silk, bamboo and lavish Royal Alpaca fleece wool, Shetland Fleece wool, and organic cotton. The divan frame is made of solid Beechwood and pocket-sprung, while the divan upholstery is a blend of wool, horsetail, and cotton. Aireloom also incorporates top-quality materials, like cotton, wool, cashmere, and thick silk layers. You can’t say something is the best luxury mattress unless it’s made with the best materials!
