There is nothing more refreshing than a good night’s sleep, and getting one often depends on the type of mattress that you have. Buying a mattress requires a great deal of consideration because of cost and the amount of time you are likely to have it. With all of the mattress options available to consumers, choosing the perfect one can prove to be a daunting task.
It is always a good idea to find out what other customers are saying about products that you are interested in purchasing, so we have put together a summary of the top 3 best-rated mattresses of 2016.
According to Consumer Reports, Casper mattresses were rated the highest in overall satisfaction by over 60,000 customers who were surveyed. Unlike other companies who offer a variety of different mattresses, this company offers a single mattress (called The Casper) that includes a top layer made of latex foam, and memory foam beneath. It has numerous awards, including Time Magazine’s 25 Best Inventions of 2015 and a 2016 Big Innovation Award.
Customer reviews consistently mention how incredibly comfortable it is and how they have recommended it to everyone they know. Some have even given the mattress credit for eliminating back pain.
The Casper is mostly available online with free shipping, although there are show rooms in New York City and Los Angeles. This could be a drawback for those who need to try it out in person before purchasing. The company does, however, provide a 100-night trial with free returns and a full refund should you decide that it is not suitable for you.
You may expect to pay a very high price for such a wonderfully rated mattress, but they are reasonably priced, from $500 for a twin to $950 for a California king. This mattress comes with a 10 year limited warranty, as long as it was purchased from Casper or one of its authorized retailers. Casper also offers a line of thoughtfully manufactured sheets and pillows to accompany the mattress.
Manufactured by Select Comfort, the Sleep Number brand is a line of adjustable-air beds with DualAir technology. These mattresses are extremely popular because they allow users to control the level of firmness on each side of the bed. Because of this technology, however, malfunctions are possible which will require repair or replacement. Pricing ranges from $1,000 to $4,700, which may be out of reach for customers on a tight budget, but the reviews seem to justify the price tag.
People who have purchased a Sleep Number bed report things such as an exceptionally high level of comfort, relief from back pain and a longer lifespan than the average mattress. Select Comfort is so confident about the quality of their product that they provide a 25 year limited warranty. Customers should make sure that they read the fine print, however, because there are variations in terms of what is covered and length of coverage.
Sleep Number beds are sold throughout the country at 410 retail stores, as well as through the company website, which provides a level of convenience for those who would like to shop for their mattress in person.
Cocoon by Sealy
With a promise to ‘transform your bedroom’, The Cocoon by Sealy mattress is one of the company’s best offerings. Over the course of two years, they designed a shippable mattress that lives up to their high level of quality, and customers are singing its praises. Reviewers mention having the best sleep they’ve had in years, and actually looking forward to going to bed because of this mattress. They also mention sleeping like a dream and sleeping more soundly.
People can customize mattress features, having the option to order it in soft or firm, and there is a 10-year warranty. There is also a 100-night trial, which means that those not satisfied with The Cocoon within that time frame can either exchange it for another type, or return it for a full refund.
This mattress is only available for shipping directly from the company, but the 100-night trial should ease concerns about it not being the right fit. In addition to all of these things, Sealy provides 24/7 customer support by both phone and email.
The Cocoon begins at $549 for a twin sized mattress, and goes up to $999 for a California king. This means that customers are able to purchase a high-quality, innovative product without having to spend an unreasonable amount of money.
Making Your Decision
