The Best Memory Foam Mattress for Sleeping Cool

Choosing the right, or wrong, mattress can have serious implications on your ability to get a good night’s sleep consistently for years to come. It’s important to take your time and make a choice that’s right for your needs. That includes taking a little time to consider all the smaller details too – like temperature.

Getting the Temperature Right

There’s a lot of debate about the perfect temperature for an uninterrupted night of sleep. However, Dr. Oz recommends keeping your room at 65 degrees as this is the best temperature for sleeping.

Why does temperature matter so much? The core temperature of your body is part of what signals your brain that it’s time to settle down and get to sleep. If your environment doesn’t promote the rapid cline of core temperature that is necessary for the proper brain signals, you’re going to have a hard time falling asleep.

It doesn’t end there, though. If you become hot while you sleep, it’s going to be difficult to remain asleep.

What Does This Have to Do with Memory Foam Mattresses?

Not all memory foam mattresses are the same. One of the common complaints about certain big name brands is that they sleep hot. Heat retention makes it difficult for people to get the good night’s sleep they were hoping to find when they made the investment in their mattresses.

One solution mattress makers have come up with is to add a cooling gel to their memory foam mattresses in order to help keep things cooler throughout the night. Unfortunately, with many manufacturers that simply means adding more petrochemicals and off-gassing into the process.

What Should You Look for in a Memory Foam Mattress?

In addition to supreme cooling ability, you should also consider looking for memory foam mattresses made with environmentally-friendly ingredients. Off-gassing is another common complaint with traditional memory foam.

PlushBeds offers a new line of PlushFoam mattresses that provide improved air flow in order to allow heat to dissipate faster and wick moisture away three times faster than other memory foam products. Combine that with the open cell design of our product and overheating during sleep is a distant memory.

If you prefer even cooler sleep solutions, however, the PlushFoam mattress line also offers the Cool Bliss memory foam mattress line which is a gel-infused memory foam mattress that sleeps 30 percent cooler than traditional brands.

PlushBeds also has the first line of memory foam mattresses to achieve the coveted GreenGuard Gold Certification indicating that these mattresses adhere to rigorous standards for low emissions of VOCs and are safe for use by the most sensitive members of the population.

What Does it Mean to Be an Eco-INSTITUT Tested Product?

Memory foam mattresses have gained a great deal of popularity over the years due to their many benefits. Part of the reason they’ve been so popular is because they are constructed in many layers of varying density. These layers respond to weight and temperature in order to mold to the shape of the individual bodies sleeping on them.

What’s In Your Mattress?

There are all kinds of things lurking inside of traditional mattresses. With today’s infographic, we focus on 4 of the main types of harmful substances that may even be hiding inside of your own mattress (hint: it’s extremely likely!). It’s enough to make you want to wear a gas mask and hazmat suit to bed at night. But wait, you don’t have to! There are healthy alternatives. That’s what PlushBeds is all about – a healthier, natural alternative to the toxic cuboid that you may be lying down on at night and breathing in fumes from. So, if the following infographic grosses you out (it should), consider an all-natural latex mattress. With no further ado, let’s put the safety gear on, and get ready to enter a regular, everyday bedroom.

The Best Memory Foam Mattress that Doesn’t Feel Like Quicksand

If you haven’t experienced it for yourself, you’ve probably heard stories about memory foam mattresses that delivered this sinking feeling, like you were sleeping on quicksand rather than a mattress. It permeates dreams and leaves people restless throughout the night. It remains one of the most consistent complaints about memory foam to date. One memory foam mattress changes all of that.

Why PlushBeds Memory Foam Mattresses Sleep Cooler

Science has taught us that cooler nighttime temperatures lead to better sleep. According to the New York Times, the optimal temperature varies slightly from one person to the next, but is typically between 60 and 68 degrees because the external temperature and the body’s core temperature need to be lower to prepare the body for restful, sustained sleep. The Times article goes on to indicate that many instances of chronic insomnia are related to temperature regulation issues.

Mattress Replacement Time Declining

New research conducted by the Better Sleep Council indicates that people are slowly but surely coming around to the idea that mattresses need to be replaced more frequently. The latest survey indicates that the number of years people expect to keep their mattresses are inching down when compared to survey results from four years prior.
