The Perfect Mattress: How To Know When You’ve Found The One


Getting more sleep is a common New Year’s resolution, and we fully support this initiative! Aside from the fact that we’re Chicago furniture sellers and love matching up our customers with their perfect mattress, we recognize the massive health benefits of consistently getting enough sleep.

For many people, getting adequate sleep at night is a struggle. Many modern adults work late, stare at a computer, TV or phone screen late into the night, or develop a sleep disorder like insomnia. If you’re struggling with getting enough rest and none of these factors are to blame, there may be another culprit for you to consider: your mattress.


When was the last time you bought a new mattress? Where and why did you purchase that particular mattress? At The RoomPlace, we have many mattress options, and it may be overwhelming for those who don’t know what they need. Here are a few pointers to help you find the one and only mattress you need for sound, restful sleep.

1.     When you go mattress shopping, give yourself plenty of time so you can fit in the following: testing out as many mattresses as you can, in multiple positions; asking friendly sales people every question you can think of; comparing the proportions with the careful measurements you’ve taken of your bed frame. If you’re rushed you may not make a thoroughly informed decision.

2.     Take note of what bothers you when you’re trying to sleep, and any consistent aches and pains you may notice when you wake up in the morning. Keep these in mind when looking at different mattress types: for example, there’s a big difference between a firm mattress and a plush one, or a molded one and a box spring.

3.     Be ready to invest. Of course, we advise against buying secondhand mattresses—you don’t always know where it’s been, and if it’s too old it may not deliver all of the benefits that you need. Always do your due diligence and buy a new mattress that you can thoroughly test and research before you buy.

Your sleep is important. For those looking for their best mattress, Chicago-area The RoomPlace locations will be your best bet. Come speak with our experienced, friendly staff and we’ll help you find the mattress of your dreams!

Is it time for a NEW Mattress?

Does a mattress really double its weight in 10 years??

Short answer is no, it doesn't actually double in weight, but it does gain some weight.

The long answer, a mattress does gain weight year after year… Mattresses will absorbs the fluids that your body excretes (oil and sweat) as well as dead skin cells. Another weight factor, is that a mattress can becomes host to microscopic dust mites, which live in the dust and feed on the skin cells. These then perform their normal biologic functions, and their excrement adds its weight to the mattress as well.

You should change out your mattress every few years not only to keep it fresh and clean but also to ensure your sleeping well. Mattresses become dense and break down. Pick out a new mattress that is perfect for you and the way you sleep. New technology in mattresses have come a long way in ensuring a good nights sleep. Traditional mattresses come in either pillowtop or no pillowtop with different levels of firmness and or plush. Foam mattresses are great for longevity because they don't breakdown like traditional mattresses. They are made of synthetic materials and also come in different firmness levels. Foam contours to your body and doesn't move when you move like traditional mattresses. New technology has brought us Gel Mattresses as well. The Roomplace has the next generation in sleep technology with our Dormia Cool Gel mattress. gel offers superior pressure relief, better support, plus a cooler sleep surface.

Experts say that anything less than five minutes to fall asleep at night means you're sleep deprived. The ideal is between 10 and 15 minutes, meaning you're tired enough to sleep deeply, but not so exhausted you feel sleepy by day.

Don't wait to long to get a new mattress because your health depends on your quality of sleep. Come by any of our showrooms or shop online for the perfect mattress for you…

Five ways to stop bed bugs before they bite

Bedbugs are one souvenir you don't want to bring home.


The National Pest Management Association's Vice President of Public Affairs, Missy Henriksen, shares the following tips for avoiding these pests while traveling.

Check Your Bed Room. If you don't want to let the bedbugs bite, thoroughly inspect your room for signs of infestation. Henriksen advises placing your luggage in the bathroom when you first arrive in your hotel room, because there's no place for bedbugs to hide in most bathrooms. Next, says Henriksen, "Pull back the sheets and inspect the mattress seams, particularly at the corners, for pepper-like stains or spots or even the bugs themselves. Adult bedbugs resemble a flat apple seed." Also look behind the headboard, inside chair and couch cushions, behind picture frames, and around electrical outlets. If you see anything suspicious, notify management and change rooms (or better yet, establishments) immediately.

Request A Different Room. If you do have to change rooms, don't move to a room adjacent to or directly above or below the site of the bedbug infestation. "Bedbugs can easily hitchhike via housekeeping carts and luggage or even through wall sockets," notes Henriksen. "If an infestation is spreading, it typically does so in the rooms closest to the origin."

Cover Your Bags. Even if you don't see any signs of bedbugs, you should still take precautions. Never place luggage on a hotel bed, sofa, chair or floor. Use luggage racks if available, and place your suitcase in a protective cover. Even a plastic trash bag will suffice.

Keep Everything Off the Floor. Despite the name, bedbugs lurk in many spots, not just where you sleep. Always be vigilant when you travel. Avoid putting your personal belongings on the floor of an airplane, bus, train, or taxi. Keep your small bag or purse on your lap at all times, and seal your bigger bags inside plastic or protective covers before checking or storing them in overhead bins.

Treat Your Luggage and Clothes After Travel. "The best way to prevent bedbugs is to remain vigilant both during travel and once you return home," says Henriksen. The National Pest Management Association offers the following checklist to make sure you leave the bedbugs behind:
    •    Inspect your suitcases before bringing them into the house, and vacuum all luggage before storing it.
    •    Consider using a handheld garment steamer to steam your luggage; this can kill any bedbugs or eggs that might have hitched a ride home.
    •    Immediately wash and dry all of your clothes—even those that have not been worn—in hot temperatures to ensure that any stowaway bedbugs are not transported into your drawers or closet.
    •    Keep clothes that must be dry-cleaned in a plastic bag and take them to the dry cleaner as soon as possible.
    •    If you suspect a bedbug infestation in your home, contact a licensed pest professional promptly. Bedbugs are not a DIY pest, and the longer you wait, the larger the infestation will grow. A trained professional has the tools and knowledge to effectively treat your infestation.
