I've been away from the blog for a bit but let me explain why! Life has been super busy. 'When is life not busy?' is what you are probably thinking. But yes life has been busy so now more than ever, I have been more appreciative of a good night's sleep. I mean really good. The kind of sleep where you wake up in the exact same position you went to sleep in and you feel like you slept on a cloud. I hadn't been getting that for a very long time. I had been tossing and turning and I couldn't find a sleep position that worked.
My husband has been wanting a foam mattress for a very long time. When Gel Foam Bed reached out to me to partner, I was excited of course but no one could be more excited as my husband! He has been begging for a new mattress since we moved into our current home. The day it arrived (in a box - yessss!) it felt like Christmas. The mattress arrives super compressed and air tight in a box that can easily be moved by one person. That makes the whole thing a cinch when you are trying to get a king size mattress through your house and onto your bed!
When we opened the package, and cut through the air tight seal, the mattress expanded within minutes and it was back to its full size within 48 hours of opening (although its perfectly comfortable to lay down on and sleep on within just a few minutes).
People have the first impression that a mattress that can be squished into a box for shipping isn't going to be high quality or comfortable. I can't disagree with these myths more. Our bed is extremely well made and super comfortable. Just 10 minutes after opening the box and the mattress unfolded, you could never tell it had been in a box upon arrival!
We were so happy the first time we laid down - we really didn't want to move. That night, and ever since that night, we have fallen more in love with our new bed and the sleep we are getting now. Personally for me, its the temperature sensitive technology that helps me sleep because I am a hot sleeper. For my husband, the support and pressure relief the bed provides has done wonders for his back and shoulders.
But yeah, yeah, yeah. What about the price, right? Because most foam mattresses of this quality are like $5,000 (insert eye-roll). These mattresses start at $349 for the Triton Gel Memory Foam Mattresses! What!! A king is only $649. You really can't say no to that when the quality and the price are that good.
I wanted to share my experience with you and I hope you will let me know if you have any questions! I'd be happy to help you! We don't have enough great things to say about it! We've been loving our sleep and spending more time in here watching movies and eating dinner in bed then ever before!
The best part? You can receive $50 off your purchase when you use the code house-of-five. It's time you got some good sleep too right!?
