What Are Sleep Cycles?

If you lie down on your existing mattress and close your eyes, is there any one area of your body that seems to be drawing your attention? Something like a focal point of pressure? If so, that pressure may very well have you tossing and turning all night long in a subconscious attempt to get comfortable.

In buying a new mattress, it's a great idea to consider how your body experiences pressure points, and how that pressure will affect your sleep cycle. If your body (or your brain) senses outward stimulus while you're sleeping, it will remain in a state of semi-alertness. This will very likely keep you from achieving the REM sleep so necessary to waking up refreshed and revitalized (read more)

Adjustable Motion Base

By Dan LaVine | 04.06.2019

On the subject of adjustable motion bases, much has been written, and very little of it has ever been of a negative nature. Virtually every chiropractor and every physical therapist will assure you that purchasing one is a quality-of-life upgrade. An adjustable motion base does everything a standard platform box spring can do, and much, much more, and National Mattress and Furniture has a wide vartiety of these adjustable bases in a variety of price points.

Getting a good night’s sleep can be difficult when an individual is recovering from back surgery or has chronic back pain. For anyone who has difficulty getting or staying comfortable enough to sleep on a flat mattress, it may be worth considering if an adjustable bed is a better (read more)

Hybrid Mattresses

By Dan LaVine, General Manager | 03.01.2019

To start us off here, I suppose we should begin with a good working definition of "Hybrid Mattresses". A hybrid mattress features an individually pocketed coil support system, which is upholstered with a memory foam, a cooling gel foam, or a latex foam comfort layer. By definition, a hybrid must contain at least two inches of one of these types of foams. Hybrids are designed to be more durable and long lasting than conventional innerspring mattresses, and to more effectively contour to the spine's natural curves. In essence, they're designed to provide the elevated experience of sleeping on a solid-foam mattress, but without the committment to the much more expensive solid-foam price tag.

Hybrid mattresses are very popular options to pair with motion adjustable bases (read more)

Adjustable Base Warranty!

By Dan Lavine | 11.30.2017

National Mattress now provides a 10 year extended warranty with each of our adjustable bed bases at no additional charge to our customers. This warranty covers all materials, service, and transportation for the serviceperson to drive to and from your home in the event that your base malfunctions or has a broken component. This extended warranty begins after the pre-existing manufacturer's warranty concludes, providing assurance that if your base malfunctions or a part brakes, you will have in-home service to fix the issue at no cost to you. This additional parts-and-labor warranty would normally cost a consumer an additional $200, but National Mattress is happy to provide it free of cost to our valued customers.

"Insight into the Fast-Growing Industry of Mattress Sales"

While brick-and-mortar stores continue to face the pressure of the growing e-commerce market, it turns out that looming threat of a "retail apocalypse" may have been over-exaggerated. IHL Group, a global research and advisory firm for the retail industry, recently published a report that provided a much-needed new perspective on the so-called crisis. Though a wave of major chain store closures has caused plenty of concern in recent months, IHL Group’s research found that they were actually off-set by an increase in store openings. According to the report, there was a net increase of more than 4,000 retail store openings in 2017 - that means that for every one company closing a store, 2.7 companies were opening (read more)
