With the instant gratification allowed by the internet, you would think shopping for big-ticket items would be easier. You would think that with such vast amounts of information at our fingertips, making an informed purchase should be simple.
For some items, this is true, when shopping for a smartphone, there are entire websites dedicated to the comparison and discussion of these devices. So too, with a fridge or washing machine, it’s easy to become an expert by reading a few “top ten” articles.
Finding information on the best mattress, however, is a different story. While most of us spend days researching our new smart TV, we usually buy the first mattress that’s convincingly sold to us at Domayne.
This drives me crazy! A mattress is one of the biggest purchases you can make for your home, and it has the potential to improve your life dramatically (or make it worse!) Its hard to make a comparison without physically sleeping on one, and even then, would you know what you are looking for?
Buying a mattress should be an informed process, with the final purchase made with confidence. If you are in the market for a new bed, it can be useful to start with a point of reference. You could do worse than to start your search with these four mattresses, which I believe are the best on the market.
Firm Ensemble by Natures Rest
A stalwart in the luxury bedding scene, these ensembles have a reputation as the epitome of sturdy. A ten-year warranty clears any doubts. Set upon a simple bed base, this ensemble is F-I-R-M, great for those who need maximum spinal support.
Mattress materials used are top-notch, with a gel-infused latex for breathability, perfect for these scorching Australian summer nights. The Natures Rest firm mattress is designed to conform to your body shape for spinal support and comfort.
Making quite the buzz lately, Koala is a young company with a surprising wealth of experience. Koala was only founded several years ago, but it brings on board a combined total of 70 years of design experience with its team. As a result of all this expert knowledge, Koala mattresses are comfortable and supportive, with a unique, open-celled foam blend, these mattresses pass the comfort test.
What sets apart a Koala mattress is the other stuff. Ten years of warranty? You know it. Free shipping and returns in metro areas? Of course. Symbolically adopting a koala through WWF with every mattress purchase? Ye- wait. What? You read that right, with every mattress purchase, Koala Mattresses donate to the WWF, talk about sleeping easy!
Sleeping Duck Queen
Another young Australian bedding company that’s making waves, Sleeping Duck takes a different approach to create the best mattress. No gimmicks here just high tech solutions to sleep.
The Queen by Sleeping Duck features one such technology that they call ‘Hyper Adaptive Foam”. This impressive sounding material combines pressure relieving properties of memory foam with the buoyancy of latex. This unique blend enhances feelings of weightlessness and is over eight times more breathable than latex. Sleeping on this mattress is like sleeping on a cloud… if a cloud wasn’t wet, cold and thousands of feet above the earth.
These mattresses are ideal for those with a restless partner; the mattress has five pocket spring zones to ensure that each part is independently supported. Combine with the hyper adaptive phone and you get a mattress that ensures a less sweaty sleep, right to the edge.
Sealy Posturepedic Exquisite
You know them, you love them, no other bedding company enjoys the brand status that Sealy does. There more premium offering, the aptly named ‘Exquisite’ reminds us why Sealy has stayed at the top. This mattress is lighter and stronger than any other mattress thanks to a three-stage support system with titanium alloy springs.
Sealy has made a bed that keeps cool and dry, while being independently supportive, right to the edge of the mattress. Sealy calls these systems ‘UniXased XT Edge Support System’ and ‘SmarTex heat and moisture treatment,’ but I think they should be called witchcraft.
Well, there you have it, a starting point in your search to find the best bed. These mattresses I have chosen are the best of the best, all displaying a unique technology and approach, but they aren’t the only mattresses out there. Take your time and make lots of comparisons. Visit your local Domayne showroom and try some beds out, you might think you like a firm mattress, but you never know.
Finding the perfect bed should be easy, but it’s not. The right information is hard to find, and it’s hard to know where to begin. Thanks to my expert guidance, hopefully, you are now inspired to take charge of your mattress purchase, and buy the best mattress for you.
