Natural Latex Mattress Or Air Bed…Which One?

If you've studied our beds deeply, you know that we use natural latex in one of our Air Bed models as well as well as in our 100% natural latex bed program. Many folks who come onto our site looking for natural latex mattresses, get onto our Air Bed page, and after much deliberation and several phone calls to our expert bedding sales staff, often select one of our Habitat Air Bed systems instead of a pure Natural Latex mattress.

You might ask, why would I buy an Air Bed over a Natural Latex mattress?..or vicey versey, so to speak...First of all, Air Bed wise, many of you already have done the leading brand's Sleep Number bed, didn't like it, want a really good quality Air Bed system, and opt to buy either our Arise, Aloft, or Ascend Air Bed System. You're going to get major bang for your buck, and you're getting a bed that is built from the ground up using individually sourced components, engineered to our ridiculously picky and annoying standards (we drive our manufacturers crazy, squeezing them to find the best components on the planet, but at the right price).

So if you're set on an Air Bed, the discussion is over there. What if you like the concept of an Air Bed, and it's independent adjustability  with our dual remote control system, but you also like the all natural, eco-friendly, greener design and extreme comfort factor offered by one of our Natural Latex beds? Answer: Since we build in the natural latex layer into our Ascend model, you're getting the wonderfully elastic, yet giving and yielding qualities of latex...but also with the tweakability factor to customize your bed with our air chamber system.

It's likely that you may find the bed less bouncy and springy, or responsive, as our Natural latex, since the natural latex is immersed a bit deeper under the quilted top. You get "nestling in" qualities in our Air Beds, with the 2" natural latex layer working in concert with other support foam layers including our memory foam layer in the Ascend model, but it provides more muted elasticity, so motion transfer is a bit more controlled, an important issue for some.

Also, our Air Bed is made from some man-made, though quite sophisticated materials...so, if you're trying to buy an all natural mattress, you probably need to consider our Natural Latex program.

With any of our Natural Latex mattress models, you are in close proximity with 100% pure latex rubber and the end result is a mattress that offers up a whole lot of effervescent personality. Our natural latex mattress also has more of a "drifting on calm waters" floating, buoyant feel, as one customer described it, but offers no way to change or adjust one side from the other.

Bottom line, if there are two of you and one likes firm, and the other like plush and softer, it's an obvious choice to opt for one of our Air Bed systems.

And again, if there are two of you and you can share similar qualities in a mattress, but you insist on a more lively, bouncier, springier feel, without the pillowtop "nestle factor", and you like the green, eco-friendly design, our Natural Latex mattress is totally up your alley. If you're still confused, give us a call and we can sort of "diagnose" your specific needs. Remember, we offer 3 models in our Natural Latex program, our firmer 6" model, and our slightly softer, but still supportive 8" model, or our plusher, more giving 9" model.


Air Beds That Offer Highest Owner Satisfaction According To Respected 3rd Party Source

Time for a new mattress?  Want to find a comfortable air bed? Need independent adjustability on both sides of your bed?  Maybe you are thinking about an adjustable air bed,but who wants to pay thousands for a quality air bed?  Don’t worry… You can get a high-end air bed for about half the price of many digital air beds that are out there. And, Habitat Furnishings Air Beds have the highest owner satisfaction rating of all adjustable air beds on the market today, according to SleepLikeTheDead.Com – Check it out:

At Habitat Furnishings, we spent two years designing our extremely comfortable, high quality air beds.  These three extraordinary beds are specially crafted to be extremely comfortable cost half the price of many other brands offering similar components and features.  Afraid you won’t like our air beds?  We want to make sure you do.  That’s why we offer a full 365 days for you to try our air bed in your own home.  If you don’t like it, you can return it and get your money back.

The three models we have designed have their own specialized features and benefits to offer, even though each model is built using our proprietary perimeter side rail foam system (which makes it easy to transfer in and out of bed, putting shoes on, etc.), our super quiet air controller and LED hardwired remote control.

Our Arise model is designed for those who prefer a firmer bed, are back sleepers, but still want some control on the degree of firmness from one side to the other.

 

Our Aloft model is designed to provide great support while offering pressure point reduction for those seeking a supportive surface, but who made also need added weight distribution and a more nestled in feel, without that sinking effect. Equipped with a layer of super premium 4lb. memory foam (not cheaper 2 or 3 lb. density, which simply doesn’t have the durability) along with a layer of our high resiliency support foam, it’s designed to provide optimal pressure point relief and float factor, with no sinking or digging your way out of the bed.

And finally, our biggest selling model, the Habitat Ascend Air Bed, offers both the pressure relieving qualities you get from our 4lb density super premium memory foam layer and the added benefit of the buoyant, uplifting qualities of pure natural latex. No sinking, no digging your way out of an abyss, but rather effortless turning, a sumptuous floating sensation, and excellent “fill-in” of pocketed areas like your lumbar region, between shoulder blades, and between hip and rib cage, when on your side.

Air Beds: Try One for an Extended Period in Your Own Home

Is it time for a new mattress?  Tired of tossing and turning to get comfortable?  Tired of sleeping in that crater in the middle of your old inner spring mattress?  Perhaps you’re interested in air bed but you’re afraid you may not like it.  What happens then?  How do you know if an air bed is right for you?

The best way to find out if an air bed is right for you is to try one for an extended period in your own home.  We recommend at least 365 days.  Some manufacturers of digital air beds offer you a tight 30 days to try their air bed in your own home.  We do not feel this is an adequate amount of time to know if any type of mattress is right for you, let alone an air bed, which is usually a new experience for most people.  If you don’t like your new air bed, you need to be able to return it and get your money back.  Do not buy from a retailer that only offers store credit or a “comfort” guarantee (same thing as a store credit).

At Habitat Furnishings, we allow you to try our two high quality air beds in your own home for 365 days.  If our air bed doesn’t work for you, you can return it and get your money back.


All Natural Latex Mattresses: Find Your Perfect Natural Latex Mattress

Tire of tossing and turning?  Time for a new mattress?  Ready to try something more comfortable than your old inner spring mattress?  Perhaps you are thinking about an all natural latex mattress?  How can you find the all natural latex mattress that is right for you?

A 100% all natural latex mattress is extremely comfortable.  It’s also antimicrobial, resists mold and mildew, and is dust mite free.  It is free of any chemicals or synthetic fillers.  But beware of the imitators — up to 80% of latex mattresses being sold today are not all natural, but are made synthetically using petrochemicals.  Although they claim to be just like all natural latex mattresses, but cheaper, they are not.  Steer clear of any latex mattress that is not 100% botanically derived.

How do you find the all natural latex mattress that is right for you?  The only way to do this is to try it in your own home for an extended period.  We recommend 180 days or more.  If you don’t like it, you need to be able to return it and get your money back.  Do not accept a store credit or comfort guarantee (same thing as a store credit).  These can leave you out a lot of money and still without a mattress that you love.

Natural Latex Mattresses and Shopping for Great Sleep

Is it time for a new mattress?  Are you tossing and turning?  Is your old innerspring mattress past its useful life (about 10 years)?  Then maybe it’s time to take a look at an all natural latex mattress.

The article Mattress Retail and the Shop for Sleep makes some very good points about the red flags you should look for when shopping at bricks and mortar mattress stores and mattress outlets.  One thing the author doesn’t address, however, is how you can shop for a great natural latex mattress (or any mattress) online.

Online mattress retailers have low overheads and small advertising budgets.  This means they can pass their savings onto you and you can get a great mattress for a lot less than you would at a traditional mattress store.

When buying a natural latex mattress online, there are three rules you need to follow:

1.  Only buy from online mattress retailers that are monitored by third parties like Shopping.com or the Better Business Bureau.

2.  Only buy from an online mattress retailer that will allow you to try your natural latex mattress for an extended period (at least 180 days) in your own home.

3.  Only buy from an online mattress retailer that gives a money-back guarantee.  Do not accept a store credit or “comfort” guarantee (slick way of saying you are getting a store credit).

Follow these three rules and you should have a great online shopping experience.  To learn more about all natural latex mattresses and air beds, check out Habitat Furnishings, the web’s specialty bedding experts.


Air Beds: Why Pay Too Much? There is More Than One Air Bed Manfacturer!

Perhaps you were interested in an air bed, but checked out “leading brand” and thought they were way overpriced.  (They are.)  You know the one I’m talking about… The one with the big budget advertising and the number settings it claims magically improve your sleep.  See… You do know who I’m talking about.  That’s because they spend tens of millions every year so you will know who they are.  Does that mean you have to buy your air bed from “leading brand?”  Absolutely not!  In fact, you can get a quality top-of-the-line air bed at about half the price of “leading brand’s” biggest selling basic model.

The article Mattresses – How Many Kinds Are There? is what got me thinking about this.  Air beds weren’t even mentioned in the article (and even water beds were mentioned!) and I wondered to myself, is this because no one thinks of any other type of air bed beyond “leading brand?”

At Habitat Furnishings we spent two years designing our two quality air beds, the Habitat Arise Air Bed and the Habitat Ascend Air Bed.  They are extremely comfortable and you can try them for 180 days in your own home and get your money back if you aren’t happy.  They’ve received rave reviews and are about half the cost of “leading brand.”  Check them out at Habitat Furnishings.


Air Beds and Natural Latex Mattresses: Should You Choose to Buy Online?

Are you thinking of buying a new mattress?  Air beds and all natural latex mattresses are two of the fastest growing products in the mattress industry.  Should you choose to buy a mattress online?  What are the benefits or risks?

Any purchase can be risky if you don’t do your homework.  An online purchase is no different.  The article Should You Choose Online Shopping? has some general tips about shopping online, but most of them are too rudimentary to be very helpful.  Here are a few tips I can offer about purchasing an air bed or natural latex mattress (or any mattress) online.

Only buy from mattress retailers that are monitored by third parties like Shopping.com and the Better Business Bureau.

Only buy from a mattress retailer that will let you try your air bed or natural latex mattress for at least 180 days in your home and will let you return it if it doesn’t work for you.

Only buy from a mattress retailer that gives you a true money-back guarantee.  Do not accept a store credit or “comfort” guarantee, which is the same thing as a store credit.

All Natural Latex Mattresses: What in the World is a Comfort Guarantee?

Are you looking to buy an all natural latex mattress?  Are you thinking about buying any type of new mattress?  The jargon can be confusing and, the reality is, it’s meant to be confusing.  What about all the different types of return policies and guarantees?  What is the difference between a store credit, a comfort guarantee, and a money-back guarantee anyway?  Here’s the scoop…

A money-back guarantee means that if you don’t like your latex mattress when you get it home, you can return it and get your money back so you can shop somewhere else.  You may have to pay a small return fee (look for $75 or less), but that cost is minimal compared to getting stuck with a mattress you don’t want and being unable to get your money back.  Read the fine print and watch out for restocking fees and other fees that cut into your return.  Look for an in-home trial period of at least 180 days to make sure you really like your mattress.

A store credit means that if you don’t like the mattress you chose, you can return it but you have to use the money you spent towards a purchase of a different mattress in the store.  You cannot get your money back and go somewhere else.  Since you already picked the mattress you liked the best and may not be able to find another mattress you like at this same store, this can leave you stuck with a mattress you don’t like and/or out a whole lot of money.  Steer clear of store credits.

A “comfort” guarantee is just a slick way of saying you are getting a store credit.  See the definition of store credit and steer clear from comfort guarantees.

Bottom line:  Only buy your all natural latex mattress from a retailer that lets you try it at least 180 days in your own home and gives you a money-back guarantee on your purchase.

At Habitat Furnishings, we specialize in air beds and all natural latex mattresses.  We offer money-back guarantees and 180 day in-home trials on all our mattresses and beds.


Natural Latex Mattresses: How to Find a Reliable Latex Mattress Review Site

Are you thinking about buying a natural latex mattress?  Perhaps you have been reading latex mattress review sites.  How do you know if these are legitimate or if they are actually just sites created by latex manufacturers or retailers for their particular mattress or store?  It can be hard to tell.  That’s why it’s important to do a little homework and only shop at mattress retailers that are monitored by unbiased third parties.

The article Finding A Trustworthy Memory Foam Mattress Review points out the you will never find a negative review on a company’s own web site.  This is true, of course.  That is why you should only shop for a natural latex mattress (or any mattress) from a retailer that is monitored by an unbiased third party like Shopping.com or the Better Business Bureau (BBB).  With Shopping.com what the customer writes is what you get to see – whether it is positive or negative.  The retailer can’t pick and choose what you see like it can on its own website or literature.  The BBB is also uncensored by the retailer and gives each retailer a letter grade based on its performance and any complaints that are filed.  Look for a retailer with an A+ or A rating with the BBB.

Habitat Furnishings offers both all natural latex mattresses and air beds.  We are happy to share our customer reviews with you through unbiased third parties and have a perfect 5-Star rating with Shopping.com and an A+ rating with the BBB.


Air Beds: Why Online Deals are Changing the Way We Shop for Them

I came across an article entitled Why Online Shopping Deals Are Facilitating the Way We Purchase Stuff and it reminded me of why it is so great to purchase an air bed online.  Shopping online is a great way to purchase any new bed or mattress.

When you shop for an air bed online, you can save money since online retailers have low overhead and do not spend millions in advertising like that “leading brand” with the arbitrary “comfort” numbers.  Before you purchase an air bed online, do a little homework.  Make sure the online retailer has been in business at least 7 years and is monitored by unbiased third parties like Shopping.com and the Better Business Bureau (BBB).  Only buy from the retailer if they have an A or A+ rating from the BBB.

To make sure the air bed you buy is right for you, make sure you get to try it in your own home for at least 180 days.  Only buy from mattress retailers that give you a true money-back guarantee, not a store credit or “comfort” guarantee, which is the same thing as a store credit.  Without a money-back guarantee, you could be out a lot of money and still not have a mattress that is right for you.
