If there is one thing we\u2019ve learned over the years as a society, it is that things advertised as \u201cone size fits all\u201d rarely do. With this in mind, it is almost always better to look for things that are custom fits in your life. This is true whether these things are clothing items, accessories, or home furnishing items.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe more things in your world that are customized to meet your needs, the better your world seems to operate. That is why a customized mattress is almost always a better choice than a "one type fits all" mattress from big box stores and gigantic mattress warehouses.\r\n\r\nBelow are five excellent reasons why you might want to go the customized route for your next mattress purchase.\r\n\r\n \t\r\nWhen You and Your Partner Have Different Sleep Preferences\r\n\r\n\r\nChances are good that no matter how many things you agree on in life, there are some things you and your partner disagree about as well. Some people prefer to keep their home warm and others prefer a colder temperature. Some prefer meat and potatoes while others prefer a diet that focuses on vegetables and grains.\r\n\r\nAnother area where many couples tend to disagree is related to the level of firmness in their mattresses. This is a problem that happens far more than you realize. One partner prefers a firm and supportive sleep surface, while the other prefers something far more comfort-oriented and pillow-like. With traditional mattresses, the entire mattress is either soft or firm. There is no way to make half the mattress firm and the other half softer.\r\n\r\nWhen you purchase a customized mattress, the mattress is made to your specifications. This means that half of the mattress can be made firmer and\/or with fewer comfort layers for one partner, while the other half of the mattress can be made softer and\/or with additional comfort layers, to help provide the perfect level of comfort for each partner. This allows you both to sleep happy, rest easy, and allows for better mornings for both of you.\r\n\r\n \t\r\nThe Thickness, Firmness and\/or Size Can Be Customized\r\n\r\n\r\nThe thickness of your mattress can have a substantial impact on how well your bed works for you. Those who are\u00a0exceptionally short or tall may prefer beds that accommodate their heights more easily. A taller or shorter mattress, with a customized thickness, will help them to get into and out of bed with ease. Also, those who are heavier in weight will require a thicker mattress with more cushioned support and those who are thinner, may prefer a mattress that is less plush, so they do not sink into the mattress.\r\n\r\nThe firmness of your mattress can also have a substantial impact on how well your bed works for you. Those who sleep on their back or stomach may prefer a firm mattress, while those who sleep on their sides may prefer a mattress that is medium in firmness and those who are older or fragile, may prefer a softer mattress.\r\n\r\nAdditionally, most mattresses come in standard sizes. If you have a custom or heirloom bed frame that doesn\u2019t conform to modern mattress sizes or you want to make your own, one of kind bed frame, you will need a mattress that is custom-made. It\u2019s the perfect solution for many people who prefer to recycle, upcycle or reuse furniture, or create new and unique furniture of their own.\r\n\r\nWhen you customize your mattresses, the mattress is made to fit your unique needs, rather than working with "one size fits all" or "one type fits all" \u201cfactory settings,\u201d so common in the industry, which accommodate the needs of the masses.\r\n\r\n \t\r\nWorking Directly with the Manufacturer Costs Less\r\n\r\n\r\nCustomized mattresses can easily be obtained by working directly with the manufacturer of the mattresses. This means you\u2019ve eliminated the middleman. That\u2019s a huge benefit to you. Why? Because the middle man wants to take his cut of the profits. That means the prices are marked up before they even arrive on the showroom floor.\r\n\r\nAn additional benefit of working directly with the manufacturer is that the manufacturer knows his product intimately. He knows the best way to customize the mattress to accommodate your needs and make your mattress work for you. In other words, he knows the right questions to ask to ensure you get the mattress you want from the very beginning. That can\u2019t be said of the average salesman working the floor in a giant mattress warehouse, filled with "one size fits all" mattresses.\r\n\r\nWhen you buy directly from the manufacturer, you can save a lot of money \u2013 allowing you to invest in upgrades that you might not have considered before, like additional layers of support or plushness to the mattress, an adjustable base for your mattress, or special sheets and mattress protectors designed to accommodate air flow while you sleep. The more you save on the mattress by working directly with the manufacturer, the more you have to spend elsewhere in the mattress buying process.\r\n\r\nWhen you buy your mattress from\u00a0PlushBeds, you are working directly with the manufacturer, so you can rest easy knowing that you\u2019re going to get a mattress that is not only healthy and comfortable to sleep on, but one that is built to your specifications and comes at a price that is right for your mattress buying budget.\r\n\r\n \t\r\nAdjust Your Mattress as Your Needs Change\r\n\r\n\r\nThe human body is a remarkable instrument. It requires careful care and fine tuning to keep in tip-top running order and may, over time, develop new and different needs. One of those changes may come in the form of mattresses that are softer or firmer along the way.\r\n\r\nWhen you buy your mattress from PlushBeds, you have the ability to make changes to your mattress. You can add or remove comfort layers and\/or change the firmness of layers in your mattress, as needed along the way, to accommodate the changes taking place in your body. This means that if you develop arthritis later in life, or have chronic back pain, you can adjust your mattress firmness or thickness to better suit your comfort needs.\r\n\r\nSome of these changes may come about as a result of age, medical conditions, accidents, illnesses, and even during pregnancy. You may simply switch sleeping positions over time, transitioning from the role of a back or stomach sleeper to that of a side sleeper with wholly different needs for support and pressure point relief from your mattress.\r\n\r\nIn these situations, the simple addition or removal of a comfort (or support) layer, can make a world of difference in your quality of sleep, without forcing you to purchase an entirely new mattress to achieve these changes in comfort. This will not only extend your comfort and improve your sleep, but it will also extend the life of your mattress, which is good for you, your family, your budget, and our planet.\r\n\r\n \t\r\nA Happier, More Productive Life\r\n\r\n\r\nThis may be the most important reason why a customized mattress is better than a \u201cone type fits all\u201d mattress. Yes, your mattress is really that important. According to the biggest personal experiment on happiness, the quality of sleep has a potentially major influence on your happiness and mood levels. The experiment concluded that sleep deprivation exposes you to a big decrease in happiness. This is why a customized mattress is important. The problem is that big box thinking has created mattresses that are not great for everyone. This can lead to aches and pains that rob you of much needed rest at night and a fuller quality of life in your day-to-day living.\r\n\r\nWhen your mattress isn\u2019t getting the job done for you, your partner, or either of you \u2013 it can cause discord in the relationship, unhappiness in the workplace, and overall strife and stress. These things can be completely avoidable by working with a mattress manufacturer, like PlushBeds, to create the perfect sleep solution for your needs, as individuals and as a couple.\r\n\r\nThere is no doubt that sleepless nights can lead to excessive crankiness the next day. When the problems are related to your mattress, it doesn\u2019t take long before you\u2019ll begin to feel the effects of chronic sleep deprivation which can cause problems with memory, productivity, and even your health. So, yes, a custom mattress can ensure that both partner\u2019s comfort and support needs are met and you can both get the quality sleep you need to succeed and be happy in your lives, night after night.\r\nCustomize Your Mattress with PlushBeds\r\nBegin by working with PlushBeds to identify your needs in a customized mattress.
