A Natural Latex Mattress For Your Man Cave

I love the idea of a man cave, that very cool place that used to be called the basement, but is now the place that men want to go and do their own thing.  A themed man cave works for someone who loves a particular hobby or sports team.  Some man caves are places for pool, air hockey or ping pong.  Or maybe a many cave is just a place to chill out and watch TV or nap on the sofa.

One thing that you don’t see in many man caves is a bed or mattress. Why not?  I guarantee many a lazy afternoon is spent asleep on the sofa or in the recliner of the man cave.  Why not put a decent bed in there so you can nap comfortably in your cave rather than wake up with a kink in you neck?

If you are going to put a mattress in your man cave, I recommend a 100% natural latex mattress.  Since a true natural latex mattress is antimicrobial, dust mite free, and resists mold and mildew, it’s perfect for a cave environment and for cave dwellers.  In twenty or thirty years when the cave man decides to replace his natural latex mattress, it’s 100% recyclable and moves the cave man into the 21st century way of doing things.

One thing that is important when choosing a natural latex mattress is to make sure it is truly 100% botanically derived, not synthetically made using petrochemicals.  Up to 80% of latex mattresses are made this synthetically, so it’s important to make sure what you are buying is truly natural latex.  To learn the differences between natural latex mattresses and synthetic latex mattresses, check out Habitat Furnishings.
