The next component of a luxury bed is its mattress. Here are the features a luxury mattress should ideally have:
A luxury bed needs a mattress that has a height of at least 12-13 inches, which is more than standard.
You can choose from natural or synthetic fillings. Natural fillings come from plant or animal sources. These can include silk, wool, cotton, cashmere, mohair, and bamboo.
Luxury mattresses usually come with silk, cashmere, and mohair filling. These are naturally hypoallergenic, regulate the body temperature, and offer a comfortable and luxurious sleeping experience.
In addition to the filling type used, you must also pay attention to the luxury mattress’s thickness of layers. For example, if you go for a synthetic filling like memory foam, then the mattress should ideally have 5 to 6 inches of thickness, which is a couple of inches more than in standard mattresses.
Also, the comfort layers will include different layers of foam instead of a single layer. For example, there could be one layer with hypoallergenic fibers, one layer with an orthopedic egg-carton foam layer for even distribution of weight and to reduce pressure on joints, followed by a layer of high-density memory foam. All these layers evenly and uniformly support the body weight to provide you with a luxurious sleeping experience.
Many luxury mattress manufacturers offer different degrees or comfort levels – firm, extra-firm, medium-firm, supersoft, etc.
Luxury mattress companies often offer customers a money-back guarantee which includes taking back/replacing the mattress or giving a full refund should you be dissatisfied with the comfort level. Many also offer a trial period of 3 months to 100 days – which means you can try the mattress for that many nights and, if dissatisfied, return it – no questions asked.
Many luxury mattresses also come with long-standing warranty periods wherein manufacturers replace the mattress.
What sets a luxury bed apart from other beds is the “feel” you get on it. As with all luxury items, you again have different options before you. Most manufacturers offer options in luxury beds like extra-firm, soft, etc.
You might be surprised to know that the bestseller in this category is medium-firm mattresses. It is definitely a go-to choice for double beds where both partners may not agree on an extra soft or super firm mattress.
Always try out different mattresses before you select the firmness level. If needed, visit a store nearby and lay down on different mattresses. You can also have luxury mattresses customized – in case you have a back issue or tend to get too hot and sweaty, you can ask the manufacturer to use breathable, supportive materials that take care of both these issues.
If you want luxury, you have to pay for it, right?
These days, you can get many luxury beds at budget-friendly prices. The fact that you can also return the mattress if you are not satisfied totally makes it worth it. So go ahead! Select luxury! Select comfort!
