What is a mattress in a box?

So, you have your mattress in a box -- but then what? Here are simple steps to guide you from box to bed:

  1. After you place the box in the room where your mattress will be, lay the box on its side and pull the mattress out. 
  2. With care, unbox and remove any covering. Some brands provide cutters for this. NOTE: Be careful when unwrapping. You don’t want to cut the mattress!
  3. Unroll your mattress. 
  4. Once the mattress is out of the box, position the mattress onto any solid or slatted base, and let the mattress expand over two to four hours. 

We also recommend giving a day or so for the mattress to take shape. Enjoy!

What is the difference between a memory foam vs a hybrid mattress?

Generally, modern mattresses that come in a box come in two types: Memory Foam (often referred to as “original”) and Hybrid. 

Memory Foam Mattresses are made of layers of foam that provide contouring comfort.  Whereas, Hybrid Mattresses are made of foam that provide the contouring comfort in addition to having springs that add extra support, which can be especially useful when two people are sleeping in a bed.
