It is amazing how your perspective of things you use changes as you mature. I use to think cheaper is better. Of course this often meant purchasing more because the cheaper product would not last as long as its more expensive counterpart. However expensive doesn’t always been the best and sometimes we pay more simply for a brand name. These days when shopping I try to find the right balance between cost and quality. One thing I have learned is purchasing a mattress at a discount store or from one of those people with signs on the side of the road usually doesn’t result in a good nights sleep.
My daughter has been complaining of her bed for quite some time. I thought this was just her excuse to crawl into bed with my husband and I. However my mother, who has the same mattress as my daughter in her spare room, told me that it really wasn’t the most comfortable even with a topper. So when I was asked if I wanted to review GhostBed mattress I knew that it was my daughter’s mattress I wanted to replace.
Now you can order a bed right from the comfort of your bed! We all know that online shopping has become one of the most used methods to shop (and my favorite). With GhostBed you can purchase a new super comfy mattress with the click of your mouse. Shipped in 24 hours and delivered to your front door in its signature box, the GhostBed is available online at www.ghostbed.com.
Since we were ordering a bed for my daughter we also decided to upgrade her bed from a twin to a full. She is 10 years old and was excited about getting a bigger bed. It is amazing that her bed arrived in the box pictured above. With the help of my husband (the mattress was not light) we pulled it out and opened it up so it could start to breathe.
As with any items I have purchased in the past that have been vacuum sealed it did have a slight odor. I simply sprayed it with some odor eliminating Febreeze and it took no time at all before the odor was gone. In addition to our new GhostBed we also received the foundation. Since my daughter was upgrading we need both pieces to complete her bed. The foundation was an interesting project as my husband and I had to put it together.
GhostBed Self Assemble Foundation
It wasn’t hard at all to put together, however we highly recommend an electric drill if you have one. It will save you a lot of time. With the foundation together and the mattress aired out all that was left was to assemble it in my daughter’s room.
Now that my daughter had a new bed she needed new bedding. We did not have any full bedding since the other beds in the house are king’s and queen’s. This means Honey and I got to do a little shopping. She picked out new bedding, that was just her style. However, after the bedding was selected we decided that Honey’s room needed a painting makeover as the blue wall just didn’t go with the new bed!
This meant another trip to the store to pick out a new color and a day of fun (if that is what you call it) painting. Honey and I took on this project by ourselves and it was really nice spending time and working together.
Honey picked a mint green, as she wanted more of a green then the green-blue in the comforter. The wall is all painted and the room was rearranged just a little.
She is so excited with her new room and her new bed. I joined her the other day when she was watching TV and I noticed the bed seemed a little firm. However Honey said, “No it is perfect because it sinks in around you and is so soft!” There are a few nights she has sneaked into bed with my husband and I but I think the extra space and more comfortable bed is keeping her in her own room at night.
The first thing I noticed when we got the bed put together is that it was taller than her previous bed. The GhostBed offers 11 inches of supernatural comfort. The GhostBed features a top layer of premium Latex and a comfort layer of pure Gel Memory Foam.
Be Cool in Bed
Did you know that temperature is a key factor to a good night’s sleep? It is recommended by The National Sleep Foundation that a cooler sleeping environment is vital for better sleep. The GhostBed uses Latex with allows for increased air flow, and Gel Memory Foam instead of conventional memory foam. In addition to providing outstanding pressure relief, the GhostBed offer a cooler night’s sleep as well. To complete this near perfect mattress is a luxurious plush cover that zips off so it can be cleaned and remain sanitary.
The great thing is a GhostBed is priced at something you can afford with prices starting at $495 with free shipping. GhostBed also wants to make sure you are happy with your new bed by offering a 20 year Warranty and a 101-Night free sleep trial.
We are very impressed with the GhostBed mattress we received and will definitely consider purchasing one in the future as we have one more mattress to replace (my oldest son’s).
