A mattress in a box or a bed in a box offers the standard features of a quality mattress. The biggest difference is that a mattress in a box is compressed and sealed in a compact mattress container, or a "box" which makes it easier to carry around during the delivery process. This means that instead of getting a big and bulky mattress during delivery, you will get a box the size of a mini fridge that you can set up on your bed.
A bed in a box offers a revolutionary way to remove the hassle of traditional mattress shopping and delivery processes. Once you receive your mattress in a box, all you need to do is remove its plastic seal, lay it down on the bed, and let it decompress.
But will the quality of the mattress be affected when compressed?
Luckily, mattresses in boxes are designed to come back to their original shape once they are unboxed. In fact, after decompressing the bed in a box, you wouldn’t even notice that it was delivered in a compact container. All it needs to undergo is the normal break-in period that traditional mattresses also go through. This is where the mattress releases the off-gassing smell and softens up until it becomes comfortable.
Most mattresses in a box consist of memory foam, latex, or a hybrid of foam and innersprings. This is because traditional spring mattresses cannot be compressed and rolled up in a box.
These mattresses will vary in weight depending on their materials. There is a wide range of mattresses in boxes available on the market. Some of our favourites are hybrid mattresses that combine the benefits of foam materials—either bouncy latex or conforming memory foam—with pocketed coil systems. For more breathable comfort, many mattresses in Singapore also come with cooling gel foam layers or open-cell structures.
Somnuz offers premium-quality, zero-disturbance pocketed spring mattresses in a box that are easy to set up and comfortable to sleep on. Whether you are a side, back, or stomach sleeper, you’ll receive the right amount of support for a revitalising sleep. You can also anticipate convenient free delivery offers from our team, so be sure to check out our special deals!
While the quality of the mattress itself is not altered, the delivery process can certainly become more convenient with a sealed bed in a box. This allows you the flexibility to personally pick your mattress or have it delivered easier. This setup is more convenient if you are opting for a bigger mattress, considering the size of HDB lifts and pathways.
Here’s a list of the many benefits of a mattress in a box:
When you order a bed in a box online, it will be shipped straight to your home in a compact box. This means that you don’t need to go to different brick-and-mortar stores to spot a mattress that suits your needs. You simply browse through various options directly from the mattress brand's website, choose one that meets your needs, and wait for it to be delivered.
Depending on the retailer, you can also pick it up without paying for additional prices. No more bumping into walls and squashing on lifts and stairs.
Aside from the delivery, setting up a mattress in a box is already very easy! Once you receive your mattress, you can roll it directly on the bed, remove the wrap, and let it expand.
Buying a bed in a box can help you get the best mattress quality and size at a reduced price.
Due to its increased convenience, you don’t have to pay hefty additional amounts on your mattress delivery when things become more complicated. We understand how challenging it can be to transport a traditional mattress on lifts, stairs, and tight doors. The good news is that these limited spaces are now more accessible because of a compact mattress in a box.
Less hassle for the delivery team, more savings for the customer—a win-win situation.
Online mattress retailers, like Somnuz, offer long, risk-free mattress trials to help you test your mattress' quality firsthand at home. Depending on the mattress brand, you can enjoy up to 100 nights of a free trial to give you ample time to decide whether the mattress is the best fit for you or not. Somnuz also offers a 5- to 10-year warranty on our high-quality mattresses.
With these 5 simple steps, you can surely enjoy the comfort of your new sleep solution!
Lay out the box on the bed frame or place where you wish to place your mattress.
Open the box to reveal a sealed and rolled mattress. Carefully take the rolled mattress out of the box without unrolling it.
Remove the first layer of plastic and carefully unroll the mattress on your bed frame.
Remove the second layer of plastic and let the mattress decompress.
Let the air circulate around your room to help with the off-gassing smell. Wait for some time for your mattress to expand to its full shape.
