Every year we go to specialty sleep shows and check out the latest trends in the specialty sleep market. While we have concentrated on our niche, memory foam, I have spent a lot of time looking at latex mattresses and air beds as well. Both latex mattresses and air beds are rising niches in bedding, and they both have some distinctive points to offer. Latex mattresses have become very popular in Europe and are slowly gaining speed in the US. Latex offers a very resilient core to a bed, and lasts virtually forever. I like the feel of latex, and I’ve seen some beds using a latex core with memory foam on the top that are very nice. The downside of latex? Very pricey.
An older blog by Kategorilenmemis, Memory Foam or Air Mattress?, seeks to provide answers about which will be better for you – a memory foam mattress or an air bed. The answer to this question depends on your personal preference, but there are a few things that the author points out that are worth emphasizing.
Want to sleep better? Who doesn’t? It’s funny how our ancestors never had trouble sleeping. People used to walk places, work in the fields, do manual labor… Now we have machines to do all that and save us time, yet many people still say they don’t have time to exercise.

Many of us do not get enough sleep. Experts say that most adults need seven to nine hours of sleep and that getting less than six hours of sleep can bring on negative side effects to one’s health. There is a lot of information out there about improving sleep, so let’s take a look at a few tips for sleeping better.
Have you been thinking about buying a memory foam mattress? Maybe you’d like to try one but you’re not sure whether or not you’ll like it. Is there one hard and fast way to know if a memory foam mattress will work for you? Fortunately, there is.
I came across an article entitled Best Memory Foam Mattress Buying Guide which is one person’s attempt at guiding memory foam mattress purchasers into making the right memory foam decision. The writer means well, but there is one rule she missed — the in-home trial for an extended period. This author says you should test a memory foam mattress for at least 30 days in your own home. I insist that the in-home trial should be at least 180 days.
I frequently blog about memory foam mattresses, natural latex mattresses, and sleep. I personally have a very keen sense of smell, so Top 5 Serene Bedroom Scents jumped out at me as something that might be interesting. Scents are also very strong triggers of memory and can remind us of things or places in our past too.
Have you been thinking about buying a memory foam mattress but you’re scared off by the prices? Do you feel like a memory foam mattress is too expensive?
