Rediscover Your Freedom: How Lift Chairs Restore Independence Introduction

Feeling trapped in your favorite chair? As we age, everyday tasks like getting up or sitting down can become a frustrating battle. A lift chair isn’t just about comfort; it’s a tool for reclaiming your freedom.

Simple pleasures like watching TV or enjoying a book can feel out of reach when you worry about getting stuck in your chair.  It’s not just physical limitation. It’s the feeling of needing help, which can chip away at confidence ([Reference 1: Mayo Clinic – Healthy Aging]).

Imagine effortlessly rising to your feet, finding the perfect position, and knowing you can get up whenever you choose. Lift chairs offer gentle support and customizable comfort, restoring your ability to manage everyday tasks without sacrificing your dignity.

How Important are the Mattress Foundations

Why is it important to get new box springs when you buy a new mattress? We get a lot of people asking that question every month. In our company’s case, it’s easy to let people know we include the box springs in our pricing, but there is a genuine reason for getting a new set of foundations/box springs every time you get a new mattress.

You want a new foundation/box spring because the first part of your mattress set to get a body impression is quite often the foundation itself. All that downward pressure that goes into the springs on your mattress begins to break down the foundation and cause the formation of dips that cause body impressions.

You’d think something as simple as a mattress foundation would be an easy, no thinking choice when you buy a mattress, and most companies will send you on your merry way with a standard foundation. However, there are considerations you must think about before you order a standard foundation.

  1. Is a standard 9-inch foundation going to make your bed way too high?
  2. Would it be better to get a lower 4-inch foundation to make getting into bed easier?
  3. What if your bed is already too high, and neither a 9-inch or 4-inch foundation would work? What then?

Buying a mattress isn’t hard if you’re being guided to get the proper back support and accessory items. Asking the right questions isn’t your responsibility in the mattress sales process. Your salesperson should be asking about your needs, the support you need, and what the finished product will look like in your home. Don’t let pushy salespeople get a sale from you when they aren’t even trying to give you the service you deserve.

How to make sure your platform bed isn’t ruining your mattress

MLily Harmony Chill 3.0 on a Wooden Platform Base

A lasting furniture trend for bedroom furniture is the platform bed. These beds are trendy because they do not require a bed skirt and eliminate the need for anything extra other than a mattress. This bed style does not need a foundation/box spring to support the mattress.

Malouf Metal Platform Bed Frame

Not all platform beds are created equal, though. It is crucial to inspect the spacing between the slats that supports your mattress. Most platform beds will have a 2-3 inch spacing between the slats. Proper slat spacing allows for the mattress’s springs to be adequately supported.

There are no issues with extra slat spacing on an all-foam mattress, a mattress with no internal springs. However, there will be too much spacing between the slats for proper support of the springs in a spring mattress, leading to body impressions and possible damage to your bed. The issues occur when the slats are 3 to 4 inches apart.

There’s an easy fix to any of your concerns, though. By adding a 2inch Bunkie Board foundation between your mattress and the platform slats, you ensure that your mattress is being supported correctly and not adding any unsightly additional foundation.

Adjusting your Sleep for a Healthy LifeStyle

Having an adjustable base/power base under a mattress was once just reserved for being ill and needing medical attention. Today having an adjustable base is commonplace in many homes.

Woman learning how the functions of an adjustable base work.People have discovered advantages like elevating your head for reading in bed, watching TV, or reducing snoring. An adjustable base is an excellent addition for relieving back issues and achieving a pain-free sleep.

Adding an adjustable base to your current bedroom furniture isn’t an ordeal either. Most beds are easy to fit an adjustable base, a couple of slat removals, and wah-lah, you’ve got an adjustable base in your bedroom.

Newer adjustable base models come with an automatic lift to eliminate snoring, Bluetooth for remote control by using your phone, and lumbar support added for extra comfort. Some newer bases even come with cooling fans to help reduce body heat build-up.

Getting an adjustable base is easy to add better sleep, additional comfort, and pain relief to your life. Give us a call, or drop by to see what an adjustable power base can do for you.
