Learn how you can get a new memory foam mattress at a fraction of the cost.
Are you a self ascribed DIY-holic? Are you the type of person who loves that shabby chic look, and the feel of having done it all yourself? You’ll be thrilled to add a bed to the list of projects you can make on your own, and this guide will help you through the process. You’ll need a discount memory foam mattress (more on that in a moment), a box spring (or materials to build one), and a bit of elbow grease.
Most people who think discount think of stores like Ikea, where the furniture typically doesn’t last very long. These pieces are great for college kids, and homes with specific design flair, but they don’t really hold up to long-term use.
If you order a foam mattress from Canada, you can order nearly any size and get quality foam at a drastically reduced price. You’ll need a slip cover for the foam sheet, and a bed bugs cover if you want to avoid bed bugs from infesting your mattress, but you’ll be sleeping on a bed of clouds in no time flat. You can even order a mattress topper if you just want to give your old bed a boost.
A high quality 5lb density king size memory foam mattress is less than $500, with even lower priced models with less foam density. Why opt for more density? Simple: support. Higher density foams will support your back and body a bit better than lower density varieties. However, high density foam does heat up at night. If you’re a warm sleeper, this could be an issue.
