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.

All Natural Latex Mattresses: Look for a 20 Year Warranty

Time to replace that old mattress?  Tired of tossing and turning?  Maybe you’re tired of falling into that crater in the middle of your mattress… If you’re thinking about an all natural latex mattress, here are a few tips.

An all natural latex mattress is extremely comfortable.  It’s also antimicrobial, resists mold and mildew, and is dust mite free.  A true natural latex mattress is 100% botanically made and chemical-free.  Beware the imitators, though.  Up to 80% of  latex mattresses on the market today are not all natural, but are made synthetically using petrochemicals.  Although those who sell synthetic latex mattresses will say they are just as good as a natural latex mattress, but cheaper, they are actually inferior to all natural latex in every way, including durability.

Look for an all natural latex mattress that comes with a 20 year warranty, no less.  Although the warranty may be 20 years, good all natural latex mattresses have been known to last  30 years or more.  Once you do replace a 100% all natural latex mattress, it’s 100% recyclable.

At Habitat Furnishings, we are the web’s specialty bedding experts, specializing in quality air beds and all natural latex mattresses.  To learn about the differences between all natural latex mattresses and synthetic latex mattress, check out our latex mattress page.

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.

Natural Latex Mattresses: The Importance of the Money Back Guarantee

Are you thinking about an all natural latex mattress?  Maybe you think you’d like one, but you’re afraid that if you try one and don’t like that you will be stuck with it and out a whole lot of money.  This is why a true money-back guarantee is so important.

Only buy your all natural latex mattress from a retailer that lets you try it in your own home for an extended period.  We recommend at least 180 days.  You want to only buy if you have a money-back guarantee.  If you don’t like it, you want to be able to get your money back.  Don’t fall for a store credit or “comfort” guarantee (tricky way of saying store credit).  Either of those could leave you out a bunch of money and stuck with a mattress you don’t want.

To make sure a mattress retailer follows through on its return policies and money-back guarantees, make sure they are monitored by a third party like Shopping.com or the Better Business Bureau.  They will allow you to check on a company’s record and show that they do return money and follow their policies as promised.

At Habitat Furnishings, we are the web’s specialty bedding experts.  We offer money-back guarantees on all our air beds and all natural latex mattresses.  Check out our site to learn more.

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.

All Natural Latex Mattesses: Stop Waiting for Store Sales and Shop Online

Are you looking for an all natural latex mattress?  Maybe you want to buy a natural latex mattress, but you’re waiting for your local mattress retailer to have a sale.  Why wait for a mattress store to mark down its overpriced inventory when it will still be overpriced?  The article Mattress Sales – Find the Best Deals suggests waiting for mattress stores to have sales, but you can get a great natural latex mattress at a great price by shopping online.

Online natural latex mattress retailers can offer great prices on latex mattresses due to their low overhead and small advertising costs.  Big mattress retailers spend millions every year on advertising and pass those costs onto you.

When buying a natural latex mattress online, here are three rules to remember:

1.  Only buy from an online latex mattress retailer that has been in business at least 7 years and is monitored by third party organizations like Shopping.com and the Better Business Bureau.

2.  Only buy from an online natural latex mattress retailer that lets you try your latex mattress in your own home for at least 180 days.

3.  Only buy from a mattress retailer that gives you a true money-back guarantee.  Do not accept a store credit or “comfort” guarantee (same thing as a store credit).  You may have to pay a small return fee, but this is a minor expense compared to losing a lot of money and still not having a mattress that you like.
