Bedsheet Problems: A Funny Mattress Video

Found this gem of a video on Facebook, featuring a woman who is encountering problems with changing sheets on a mattress. While this video is hilarious, it’s a very common situation among many households.

One would think that it is actually easy to just pick off a sheet from the rack at bedding or mattress store. But there are many people who still make the mistake of buying bed sheets that are either too big or too small for the mattress, especially with fitted sheets. And the end result? You’ve got to watch this video to see what we mean (and perhaps many of you can relate to this!):

Should You Get An Adjustable Mattress?

As with many other things, choosing whether to get an adjustable mattress is really a matter of personal requirement. Just because you can score a good deal from this, or a neighbor has had a great experience with it, you might not be able to maximize use of this kind of mattress if it’s not really something you need.

Mattress Trend for 2014

What can be expected from the mattress industry this 2014?

According to the experts, growth for specialty mattresses that will feature hybrid styles and innovations will continue to become the primary focus for many of the players. We’ve seen how much cooling gels have risen in demand in the past years, and it’s most likely going to escalate this year. In particular, manufacturers will be developing and coming up with mattress products that help with making the sleep environment cooler or warmer, depending on the climate, especially since the weather, of late, continues to become so unpredictable.

Managing the Kids’ Sleep Routine During Holidays

Because the holidays are filled with so many activities, the children are also most likely to stay up later than usual. With school on a break, there’s nothing else to give them that rigid routine for sleep, and things can get messed up. Should you indulge and let kids enjoy this, or should you make sure that they don’t forget their routine? In some households, routines are still upheld because it makes for a very stress-free holiday vacation. When everyone, including the kids are getting good sleep, no one wakes up sore and cranky!

An Armchair Made From Mattress

Dubbed the Huggy Armchair, this whimsical creation features a mattress, in multiple color at that, wrapped around a base that is shaped like a basin or drum.
