All About Latex Mattresses – And A Good Night’s Sleep

We all need our sleep:  beauty, brains, energy or just for rest and recuperation.

You may have heard of the six sleep admonitions to getting a good night’s sleep:

  1. Keep to a schedule, even on weekends.
  2. Maintain a bedtime pattern.
  3. Get exercise everyday, but not just before bed.
  4. Don’t eat or drink alcohol or caffeine before bedtime.
  5. Keep your bedroom environment conducive to sleep: cool, dark and quiet.
  6. Give your body (spine, lumbar, shoulders and hips) the support it requires with a proper mattress.

If you can take care of items 1 – 5, we can help you get a mattress that, as Goldilocks said, is Just Right.

To design a mattress that gives you spinal alignment as well as relief for your pressure points, just take a momement to tell us about your six sleep demographics:

  1. How old are you?
  2. What is your height?
  3. What is your weight?
  4. Are you male or female?
  5. Do you predominantly sleep on your back, stomach or side?
  6. Do you generally like your mattress softer or firmer.

We make every mattress out of Talalay Latex surrounded by Organic EuroKnit Cotton quilted to Organic Wool.  Each side is designed for each sleeper.  Life

is too short to compromise on proper support in your mattress.  We will build your mattress to your sleep demographics.  And every FloBed is adjustable.  With our Goldilocks Guarantee you can make it softer or firmer for the 20 year life of the mattress.

Because we manufacture every FloBed latex mattress and ship it directly to you, we can afford to put in the very best materials and provide you with unparalleled customer service.    All at a price that is less than you will find in the traditional distribution cycle because you are only paying for the materials and the 10 person company that makes your FloBed.  You are not paying for storefronts, wholesale and retail sales force, extra transport and all the usual cost of doing business.  And a money back guarantee as well as a Goldilocks Guarantee allowing you to order new firmness cores at a steep discount for 20 years.

Not losing sight…

Back in the 1996 we had a crazy dream: allow customers to design a quality mattress online that would meet their sleeping needs… not just a good compromise, but a mattress each sleeper could choose the right mattress configuration for their body.  Five years later Temma Ehrenfeld, of Newsweek, coined “Goldilocks Was Right” newsweek-189after purchasing a FloBed and then writing about it…
and we’ve been helping folks make their bed “Just Right” ever since.

The one thing we have never lost sight of is treating our customers like we would want to be treated. That adds up to: 1) making our mattresses out of the best materials we can find — Talalay latex of just the right firmness combinations cut precisely to fit together in a single unit of individualized comfort and 2) unparalleled customer service.

Customer Review Episode 3

In the final episode of our mini-series, Lea Laase describes her experience working with the FloBeds staff. Lea found that her husband’s side of the mattress was perfect but her side needed some adjustments. So she called the FloBeds team and was told over the phone what changes she could make to start sleeping comfortably. The great thing about purchasing a FloBed is we are only one call away. Our team is here to support you in your quest for a better night’s sleep.

 

We are Here to Help

EXHIBITION

Our sales staff works hard every day to bring our customers the best shopping experience possible. We know it can be difficult to make such a big purchase online. That is why we make it our mission to help you feel comfortable through the entire shopping experience. Have questions? Give us a call. Have questions and we are not open? Send us an email. Our trained firmness advisors are here to help you find the best fit for your personal needs.

Here is one customer’s Yelp review:

Literally, some of the best sales staff I have ever worked with.  The crazy part, is that I have never even met these people in person.  I feel like I’m a part of their family and that they honestly care about their customers and their products meeting the standards of their customers.  I have been using my vzone bed for a little over a month now and my wife and I love it.  I can also feel great about the fact that, if there ever comes a time when this bed doesn’t meet our specific needs, I can modify it to whatever specs I want (i.e. firmness).  If my wife needs a change because she is aching from pregnancy, there are ways you can help with that with this bed.  It’s truly an amazing company and I’m glad I did the research and took a hard look at the mattress industry to come to the conclusion to go with FloBeds.  I couldn’t be happier.

Thanks!

Last year we had the pleasure of working with the Albion Schoolhouse. This beautiful vacation rental on the coast of Northern California has multiple FloBeds.

“Enjoy fresh air, the comforts of a fine hotel; a stage with live mics; a bounty of totally excellent board games; yoga mats; secret gardens; a big tv screen and a fully stocked kick-ass chef’s kitchen. Constructed in 1924, this grammar school served the town’s schoolchildren and community until 1995 when it was purchased by William Bottrell who spent 20 years lovingly restoring and renovating it.”

If you are looking for a getaway where you can get some peace, quiet and good sleep, look no further! It is always hard to go on vacation and leave the comfort of your FloBed Latex Mattress. A very important part of vacation is having the chance to catch up on your sleep. However, we all know what a gamble it can be when you go to a hotel and have to hope that the mattress is comfortable. Head on over The Albion Schoolhouse and you can rest assured that you will be able to catch some Z’s on a FloBed.

Customer Review Episode 1

Finding a new mattress can be an arduous task. We all know the drill- you enter a mattress store, work with a pushy salesman and leave with a mattress you don’t want.

Here at FloBeds we like to do things a little differently. We educate customers about our latex mattresses, find the one that fits them best, guarantee a 100-night test rest and work with them to make any changes they may need.

Over the next few weeks, we will release videos about one customer’s experience with FloBeds. Many customers call into our shop or stop by and have similar stories to the one Lea Laase’s is sharing in the video below:

4 Sleep Tips for Success

Here are some pointers on how the right bedroom setup can help you sleep better. Check these tips off your list and your will be on your way to dreamland in no time.

  1. A custom mattress: Many people sleep on mattresses that are too firm or too soft. FloBeds can be customized, so your mattress can fit your body and sleeping habits just right. Our latex mattresses are extremely supportive and the layers in the mattresses can be switched around to achieve different firmnesses.
  2. The right height frame: Make sure it isn’t too difficult to get in and out of bed because of your bed frame height. Even the rules of Funghi suggest you pay attention to the height of your frame. FloBeds offers various height legs so you can find the best one that fit your needs.
  3. The right sleep temperature: Research shows that your bedroom should be between 60-67 degrees Fahrenheit. Invest in a smart thermostat to make sure your room is the right temperature.
  4. The right humidity: “Extreme weather conditions impact our mood, our health, and can even our sleep. When the air has a high humidity concentration, we feel hot and sweaty – which means uncomfortable sleep. When the air is too dry, on the other end, our skin, eye and nasal passages dry out which is also uncomfortable.”-Huff Post According to the National Sleep Foundation your room should always be at 50% humidity.

“You snooze you loose.”

“I’ll sleep when I’m dead.”

It is time to change the way our culture looks at sleep.

Golden State Warriors are amidst another championship run and the 2015 Finals MVP Andre Iguodala sat down to speak with Arianna Huffington, the author of Sleep Revolution. He states that research showed, “Getting enough sleep directly affected my 3 point percentage which doubled, my free throw percentage was up 30%-40%, my turnovers were way down, I got more steals.”

Andre’s Bedtime Routine is essential to getting better sleep. His routine is as follows:

  1. 10:30 settled down in bed with a book
  2. Meditation with breathing exercises
  3. Turning the temperature down in the room
  4. No TV in the bedroom
  5. Legs and head are elevated appropriately

Andrea has been able to balance sleep and work to live a healthy and successful life. Think about changes you can make to your bedtime routine to be able to lead a better life.

Meditate Before Bed

flobeds woman sleeping
Meditation is a great solution to getting a racing mind to slow down at bedtime. Although meditation is great at any point during the day, it is great for fighting fatigue and insomnia. Meditation is the practice of quieting the voice in your head and this, “creates physiological changes that are similar to those that happen in your body during the early phases of sleep.” There are guided meditations that would really help during this process. Take a look at the app Headspace to get started with guided meditation. Quiet your mind, relax, and fall asleep faster with meditation.
