You can’t put a price on a good night’s sleep. At least, that’s what the mattress industry tells us as we awkwardly hop from bed to bed in-store, faking it to the hovering salesman that, yes, of course we can feel the $1000 difference between a mattress that’s plush vs. pillow top.
The better plan: Visit the Helix Sleep website and custom-build the bed of your dreams from the comfort of your living room couch.
To start, simply fill out a quick 2-3 minute quiz about your sleep habits (answering questions like whether or not you’re a stomach sleeper or if you prefer to sleep with one leg out from under the covers to keep cool). Then, like magic--but actually using very official sleep technology--your personalized mattress appears, perfectly constructed to suit your unique sleep needs (hello, perfect airflow and cradle-like back support). There’s even an option to “split” the mattress down the middle so it’s customized for couples--factoring in key details like the fact that your S.O. snores.
Prices start at $600 and shipping is free. Your mattress will arrive at your door a week later in a box the size of a golf bag and then expand to proper size once removed. The best part: You have 100 days to try it out. If you’re not satisfied, Helix will fully coordinate pick-up and cover all costs to ship it back.
And the reason to shop for a mattress in a showroom is…we forget.
