Relax: Our Top Tips on Relaxing Before Bed to Get Better Sleep

by Comfort Custom Mattresses & Marine Bedding on 08/15/17

Today is National Relaxation Day! Relaxing is something we all do at some point in our day, whether it be in the morning, during the day, or just before bed. We feel relaxing is underrated & since most of us work today and won't be able to relax until later, we are sharing our favorite ways to relax before we sleep.

1. Meditation - Meditating has become a popular way to improve your mental, physical, and emotional health. Meditation is a stress soother, which means it activates the autonomic nervous system that promotes stress relief, deep breathing, & better sleep. Think of meditation as more of a reset button for stress if you will. There are many different ways to meditate before sleep and no two individuals will meditate the same way. There is Guided Meditation where a soft voiced individual relaxes you and teaches you how to meditate or meditation through relaxing music or sounds such as rain. Either method you choose can give you a more relaxed state of mind with less stress & restful sleep.

2. Reading a Book- The University of Sussex performed a study that proved that 6 minutes of reading can lower stress by 68%. As previously mentioned, lowering stress can promote restful sleep. This method actually tricks our mind to not think about the stress in our lives. By reading a book, we can go to an alternate reality which has a calming effect. The University of Sussex says that reading a book relieves stress faster than music, going for a walk, or drinking a cup of tea.

3. Take a walk - Taking a walk would seem to do the opposite than relax you, but walking is a stress reliever. When you are walking, you are outdoors feeling the elements. Nature can be a relaxant by itself, but combined with focused breathing and the chemicals released to your brain due to exercise causes relaxation. 10 minutes a day can cause a noticeable change in stress management. Managing stress can cause you to feel more relaxed. Also, getting into a routine with exercise, even walking, will cause you to sleep better due to the rapid increase & decrease in body temperature. When your body temperature decreases, you fall asleep.

4. Drink tea - When you drink a cup of hot tea, something says relax. There are many teas out there that promote sleeping, but how do they work. Camomile is a tea that has a mild sedative effect which helps us relax and get better sleep. American Passionflower is another herb that can be used to make tea. This herb calms anxiety and nervousness to get a better sleep at night, but should be avoided by pregnant women. The aroma of tea also causes us to be calm and relax.

You can try to combine some of these methods together to start a routine before bed such as meditate and drink some herbal tea afterwords. Relaxing is the best way to get better sleep and we hope some of these methods brings more relaxation into your life. Happy Relaxation Day!!

Protect Your Mattress – Get the Most Out of Your Investment

by Comfort Custom Mattresses & Marine Bedding on 08/12/17

Our mattresses spend a lot of time with us and they need to be properly cared for to give you years of great sleep. A mattress is an investment and the average person spends roughly $500.00 to $3,000.00 on a mattress. If you’re spending that kind of money, you may want to treat your mattress with the greatest care to get the most out of your mattress. Not taking diligent care of your mattress will cause a reduced lifespan and you’ll be spending more money sooner than you thought.

Most mattresses can last you between 5-7 years and with poor care, you may be replacing your mattress sooner than that. Some mattresses have a longer lifespan due to the materials it is made from, which brings me to my first point.

  1. Research materials used to make the mattress before you purchase. By researching the materials, you will learn the benefits of each type of material that are in different mattresses. For example, there are 2 types of Latex, Dunlap Latex & Talalay Latex. Talalay Latex is made with a process that makes the Latex more natural than other Latex. Talalay Latex is hypoallergenic, anti-microbial, dust mite & mold/mildew-resistant, & breathable. Latex offers pressure point relief, resilient support, & is durable.
  2. What your mattress is set on is just as important to the longevity of your mattress as what materials is used to make the mattress. With proper support, your mattress will keep its shape and structure the way it should. If you have a spring mattress such as a Pocket Coil, you will need to make sure you have a box spring to support your mattress. If you have a foam mattress, usually a solid platform will do just fine to support the mattress. Make sure there is no breaks in slats or that the base isn’t broken because this can cause your mattress to not last long.
  3. Invest in an excellent quality mattress protector to protect your mattress from stains and sweat. If you have children or pets, this is a must. Liquid spills or accidents on a mattress that doesn’t have a mattress protector will degrade the materials in your mattress altering the comfort and support. Also, your mattress is made of fibers that can trap smells that can be hard to get rid of. By using a mattress protector, you can eliminate these occurrences and preserve your mattress.
  4. Wash your bedding, including your mattress protector regularly. Think about it, when we sleep we lay on one sleeping surface covered with a fitted sheet and your body sheds skin cells, oils, & hair all day and night long. The skin cells, dust, and other particles stay on your sheets until you wash them. Washing them regularly keeps you from getting rashes and protects your mattress. Be sure to wash your mattress protector as well.
  5. Do not let your kids jump on your mattress. Yes, it can be fun and we all have memories of doing such things when we were younger, but it is bad for your mattress as well as your base. The mattress can wear down quickly and get damaged from jumping on the bed. It's best to keep jumping on the ground and to trampolines.
  6. Follow manufacture cleaning instructions. When cleaning your mattress, it is important to clean your mattress with products that are suitable for the type of mattress you have and ones that won’t compromise the quality of your mattress. To remove surface dust, vacuum your bed with a hose and can be done every 1-3 months. Stains can be cleaned with mild soap and water and allow the mattress to completely dry before making the bed. Letting in sunlight will help to dry your mattress.

The lifespan of your mattress can be preserved if you take care of your investment. Following these steps can help you enjoy your mattress longer.

Which Residential Mattress Size is Suitable for Your Needs?

by Comfort Custom Mattresses & Marine Bedding on 07/22/17

Residential Mattress size is just as important as what materials are in your mattress. If you are sleeping on the wrong size bed for your needs, you could be setting yourself up for rough sleep. These examples below can help you decide if your current mattress is sufficient for your needs or if you need to ditch your mattress and go for a bigger option.

Twin Mattress Example

Queen Mattress

King Mattress

When you sleep on the correct size mattress for your needs, you'll have better more comfortable sleep than if you are sleeping on a bed that is too small for you. Rule of thumb: a couple should never sleep on a bed smaller than a Queen size. Some couples think it is okay to sleep on a Full size mattress, but if you measure the equal space both people are taking, it only measures to a crib size amount of space for sleeping per person, which is not sufficient for an adult. If you have any questions about mattress sizing, call us at 954-496-8400 or email us at and we would be happy to help you find your perfect mattress size.

Beauty Sleep: Health Benefits

by Comfort Custom Mattresses & Marine Bedding on 06/29/17

We’ve all heard about beauty sleep and some people insist on getting their beauty sleep so they go to bed early. But do we really know what “beauty sleep” does for our bodies? According to research, these people are on to something.

Sleep is great for our bodies for fighting infections, building our immune system, and many other benefits that we hardly notice. Turns out that getting great sleep can make an enormous difference in our appearance. Here’s how.

As far as our apperance is concerned, sleep is very important for keeping our skin healthy and vibrant. Getting an adequate amount of sleep can help keep wrinkles at bay because our body is able to make the right amount of Collagen and Hyaluronic acid – the molecules that give our skin that wonderful glow and keeping our skin hydrated. Without proper sleep, our bodies immune system increases inflammatory cells that breakdown Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid which leads to wrinkles and dehydrated - dull looking skin. Also, an increase of inflammatory response prompts acne formation, increased skin sensitivity, allergic reactions, and can cause more serious skin conditions such as Eczema and Psoriasis.

Sleep is important for the aging process as well. During sleep, growth hormones allows the body to become repaired. Without proper sleep, human growth hormones plummet causing weak bones, sagging skin, and loss of muscle mass. Loss of sleep leads to excess snacking and calorie consumption causing weight gain and increased chance of Diabetes. There is a balance that our bodies need to fight weight gain. If you’re dieting and sleeping well, your body will burn excess fat. If you’re dieting and not sleeping well, your body will turn to burning muscle mass which leads to weakness and lack of energy.

To ensure that you’re getting what your body needs for adequate beauty sleep – you need to stay away from eating a big meal too late in the evening, no caffeine 4-6 hours before bed, drink plenty of water throughout the day and not late at night, limit alcohol, regular exercise, & wake up every morning at the same time, even on weekends.

Mother's Day Mattress Guide

by Comfort Custom Mattresses & Marine Bedding on 05/06/17

How to Buy Mom a Mattress for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a celebration about mom. The traditional gifts are flowers, jewelry, or candy, but what about the mom that loves a unique gift, a gift of comfort. Comfort is at the top of a mother’s list when it comes to various aspects in life. Mother’s Day is special because that day she can think about herself. She gets pampered and comforted. Why not comfort her with a new mattress?

Most women get less sleep than men do and even less sleep when they become mothers. Mothers have always kept us comfortable since the day we were born. It’s a mother’s duty to make sure that her kids are comfortable and supported.

When a mother has lack of sleep and is also taking care of her children, her bedroom needs to be her sanctuary. Somewhere where she can rest comfortably and get quality sleep. Somewhere where the thoughts of the day fade as soon as she lays on that perfect bed and can relax her mind and body.

Lack of sleep can cause serious health issues and for anyone, especially for mothers who rely on health to keep chasing after their kids. Getting quality sleep can bring happiness, energy, and comfort into the home and there’s an old saying, “when mom is happy, everyone’s happy.”

Here are some suggestions when buying a new mattress for Mother’s Day:

What kind of sleeper is she? It does matter what mattress you get by the way you sleep. If mom is a side sleeper, a softer mattress may be better for mom. If she is a back sleeper, a mattress with a medium to firm will suit her better and if she is a stomach sleeper, medium firmness may make her feel comfortable. Getting the correct comfort level for your mom will make all the difference in getting a great night’s sleep.

Advertisements beware. Just because an ad for a company claims that their mattress is for everyone, doesn’t mean it really is. Everyone is different. We are not a one-size fits all society. Why should we treat our sleep the same? Buying from a custom mattress manufacturer like Comfort Custom Mattresses will give you the opportunity to make a mattress customized to your mother. Plus, she will feel special to know you customized a mattress to her needs and not picked out a generic mattress for a unique woman.

Quality over price. Quality is just as important as comfort. A quality mattress will give your mom comfort for years to come. Buying a mattress that has quality materials makes a significant difference when it comes to the lifetime of the mattress. If mom has allergies, you can go with a natural latex made by the Talalay process. This latex his hypoallergenic, dust mite-resistant, mold and mildew-resistant, eco-friendly. Latex also provides resilient support and pressure point relief. There are many mattresses that can be made using latex. Comfort Custom Mattresses makes an All Latex mattress, Ultimate Mattress, and Pocket Coil and Latex mattress. These mattresses are different from each other, but all have natural latex to give mom the benefits, plus the support.

Do your homework. We’re not talking about your school work. We are talking about shopping around, finding out what mom likes, and reading reviews. The best way to find out if people recommend a mattress is by reading the reviews. Most people are honest in reviews and it can be a great tool to find out about a mattress and about a company. Read the reviews on the company, look up their website, and call and ask questions to find out if that company’s products are going to be worth the money and a great fit for your mother. Looking on a company’s website can give you a lot of information on what they offer. If a company doesn’t have great reviews or valued customers, then they probably wouldn’t be right for your mother. After all she deserves the best. By calling and talking to a sales rep at a company, you can ask questions that may not be on the website. Ask questions like current production lead time, materials, where materials are from? And so on. Keep in mind that the company wants to sell mattresses and if the response sounds gimmicky, it probably is.

By following these steps, you will be well on your way to helping mom have a great restful Mother’s Day. We here at Comfort Custom Mattresses & Marine Bedding take comfort, quality, & support seriously and work hard to make sure you are satisfied. If you’re interested in a mattress for Mother’s Day or any time of the year, we are here to make sure you get a great comfortable custom mattress.

Why you should buy a custom mattress vs. a standard mattress for your RV.

by Comfort Custom Mattresses & Marine Bedding on 04/21/17

If you own an RV then you know that the mattress your RV came with is not very comfortable and not ideal for sleeping on multiple nights in a row. Whether you’re an occasional traveler or live the full-time RV life, you need a comfortable home quality mattress to sleep on.

You may notice it is difficult to find a mattress that will fit the allotted space in your RV because most RV mattresses are not standard sizes or shapes. RV sizes are sometimes shorter than a standard mattress and there for the mattress must be a custom size. RV Mattresses also do not usually take the shape of a traditional mattress. Some mattresses have rounded corners and some have cut out corners or even a hinge. A custom mattress will allow you to get the correct mattress size as well as the comfort you long for.

Here at Comfort Custom Mattresses, we take comfort and customization seriously. Not only do we make sure you have the correct mattress, but we custom build the mattresses from raw materials Made in America at our showroom & factory located in Fort Laurderdale, FL. We want you to know what is going into your mattress, so you can have the best sleep you can while traveling. Here are some examples of mattresses we have made in the past and how they are beneficial to you.

Our Pocket Coil Mattress is a step up from a traditional innerspring mattress for those of you who are used to an innerspring mattress, but do not want the cons of the innerspring mattress. The Pocket coils are individually cased to allow a more buoyant feel to the mattress and support your body and maintain body alignment. The Pocket Coils eliminate motion disturbance because you are sleeping on our own coils. A foam edge encases the coils for edge support and a pillow top cover is added on top for a cloud-like comfort.

Our Cool Gel Memory Foam Mattress is a popular choice among travelers because this mattress provides the ultimate comfort by contouring to your body. The foam is infused with cooling beads that regulates your body temperature and give you a cooling feel while you sleep. Our Cool gel memory foam is laminated to our premium support foam for correct body alignment and support. This mattress also eliminates motion disturbance and relieve pressure points.

Our Ultimate Mattress combines both Cool gel memory foam & Latex to give you a cooling sleeping surface as well as support from the Latex. The Cool gel memory foam provides contouring comfort while the Latex gives you maximum support due to the resilience of the Latex core and is breathable due to the small holes in the Latex. This mattress is the best mattress for eliminating motion transfer and never will create body indentations because the mattress always returns to its original shape. Say goodbye to a sagging & lumpy bumpy mattress. Our Ultimate Mattress also has a long-life span of approximately 20 years, which is much longer than a traditional mattress that needs to be replaced every 7 years. No wonder this mattress is our bestselling mattress to date.

These are some options for you to consider when buying a new RV mattress. By buying a custom mattress, it will enhance your traveling experience and help you get the most out of your trip. Trade in those sore days for hiking or experiencing the outdoors like you want to.

5 Signs You Need a New Mattress

by Comfort Custom Mattresses & Marine Bedding on 03/28/17

If you have ever shopped for a mattress, you know that it is a decision you shouldn’t take lightly. Finding a mattress that has the perfect quality, comfort, & support should be at the top of your list. What if you don’t know if you need a new mattress? Or what the signs are that you need a new mattress?

These 5 signs are a sure bet that you need a new mattress.

  1. Your bed is sagging or has indentations - If your bed is sagging or you have an indentation where you usually sleep and it feels like you’re falling into a hole when you lay down, it’s time for a new mattress. There will be no comfort or restful sleep with a mattress that has permanent indents or sags in it. Get a new mattress and go for something with a little more support like our Cool Gel Memory Foam Mattress & Latex combination mattress. The Cool gel keeps you cool throughout the night and the Latex give the perfect amount of resistance that keeps your mattress from getting body impressions.

  2. You wake up sore and tired - You should feel relaxed, rested, and ready for the day after laying on your mattress. If that feeling escapes you, then you may need a new mattress. When you wake up sore, you are less productive and more likely to be less active during the day. No one wants to be sore all day long. When you sleep, your body regenerates itself and protects against invaders, but if you’re not getting good sleep and tossing and turning throughout the night, you’re health will suffer because of your mattress. Trading good sleep for keeping an old mattress is never a good idea. Ditch the old mattress and get one with contouring comfort, support, and offers pressure point relief such as our bestselling mattress, The Ultimate Mattress. There is a reason why people ask about this mattress by name.

  3. You have better sleep somewhere else - When you go to a hotel or a friends house, do you get better sleep? If your answer is YES, then you need a new mattress. You should have the best sleep when you are in the comfort of your own home, not when you’re on holiday or at a family member’s couch. You should feel like your bed is your sanctuary, somewhere where you know that you are going to have a positive experience. If you feel like your current bed is like sleeping on a rock, then we have a cloud-like mattress that will suit your needs and it’s our Pocket Coil Mattress. Our Pocket Coil mattress contours to your body.

  4. Your partner isn’t sleeping - You may be getting a decent night’s sleep, but chances are that you and your partner may not have the same preference on mattress firmness. If you notice your partner is not sleeping well, it's time to get a new mattress. By going to a showroom like ours, you will get to lay on a variety of mattresses and talk to someone knowledgeable on what you would like in your custom mattress. We adjust your mattress to you and your partners perfect firmness. We make sure you get exactly what you and your partner want.

  5. You don’t remember when was the last time you bought a mattress - If you can’t remember when you last got a new mattress, then it is definitely time to get a new mattress. Mattresses are not like wine, where they get better with age. Your mattress should not be over 7 years old because you wouldn’t be comfortable on that mattress. Your body naturally changes every year and within 7 years, your body could be drastically different. You may have lost or gained weight, which would mean your old mattress is probably uncomfortable to you.  Do yourself a favor and invest in a great mattress that suits you. You wouldn’t keep a pair of shoes for 7 years and expect them to be just as comfortable as when you first got them or wear the same pair of shoes from age 7 to 14 and expect them to fit. Upgrade your mattress as your needs change.

By keeping these rules of thumb in mind is a great start to figuring out if you need a new mattress or when to get a new mattress. Be sure that you do your homework, speak to someone knowledgeable of different materials that would suit your needs. It is best to buy a mattress that is made custom for you as opposed to a mass production mattress from a box store that may only take care of one of your needs and not meet them all.
