What bed do you sleep on?

49 posts in this topic

Not sure where to put this but here goes. The wife and I are in the market for a new bed. We are leaning toward a Tempurpedic foam bed. Possible sleep number. Let me here the good and bad opinions.

Thanks

Andy

My wife and I shopped around a lot...the Sleep Number was a possibility but I didn't like that it feels like there's a board in the middle. We slept in one at a Bed and Breakfast and the dang thing was not comfy!

We ended up going to the Original Mattress Factory and got a great bed. We bought a Full Size as well from there and it's just great. Good prices too and if you want more or less stuffing/pillow top they can do that for you no problem.

That's my two cents worth...

We finally dropped the $ on a Tempurpedic and cant believe we waited so long to do it. Since we bought ours. My parents and brother have bought one too. I love this bed...

This is really wierd. I slept on a memory foam mattress for three years. While i thought it was the most comfortable thing ever......every night I had to get up and go to the bathroom. Thought I was just getting old. Since I've gone back to my Serta (yum yum yum,I sleep through the night.

Yea, I know-don't ask me but it's the truth.

We have the sleep number and we both love it. We have the king size and it does have the hard strip down the middle but we have gotten used to that. Now when we stay in a another bed we are so happy to come home to our own bed.

Sleep # here too. We love it.

I've never slept on one, but have heard that the foam mattresses can retain body heat quite a bit. Don't know 1st hand though.

Sleep # bed here too with the pillow top.

Had this bed for over 10 years and never woke up with a back ache. Went to bed with a few, but they were gone in the morning. It's a blessing in itself that each side can be set to different settings. Keeps both of us happy...she's a 30 and i'm a 65 grin

Thanks for the replies and keep them coming.

I have also heard that the foam beds tend to be a little warmer to sleep on. Anyone experience this first hand?

I've got a queen Serta no flip mattress and it has been great. No sagging and it is going on 10 years. Then again I sleep alone so that might have to do with the longevity. sleep I've thought about the Temporpedic and sleep number, but don't want to shell out the $$ now.

I am real sensitive to the heat thing too and that was my biggest concern with the Tempurpedic, but I have been happy with it so far. Its maybe a bit warmer than a traditional matress, but for me it wasnt really a noticeable change.

Sleep Number! If you agree exactly on beds then you don't need it I guess, but my wife likes a 25-30 and I'm a 60-65 so we couldn't agree on any single bed but this one.

I must have been one of the few who didn't care for the sleep number, so we went to Original Matt. Factory. Great bed for the price and you must flip them, don't buy one that claims you don't need to flip.

We have the Serta no flip and won't get one again. It was fantastic for the first year or so, then started to sag. Maybe we didn't rotate (front to back, not side to side) it enough but for what it cost IMO it should last longer. The next bed we get we will look real hard at the sleep # beds.

    • Anyone else try one of these retracting clothes line reels for an anchor rope?  I saw the idea on YouTube thought I'd try it and it's worked great all summer.  You just pull out all the plastic clothes line and replace in with paracord. The paracord is tied to the last 6" or so of clothes line so don't let that end slip back into reel.  Then instead of having anchor rope all over the place it gently goes back into the reel. It holds about 40' which is plenty for me. 
    • Or some Kapernick toilet paper.
    • Like I said very difficult concept to understand.
    • I always thought that you cut into the base of the antlers and count the number of rings.?    
    • That explains A LOT.  I'm guessing you've done this many times.  Trump/Clinton, Ford/Chevy, Lund/Alumacraft, McDonalds/Burger King.....
    • The LED pancake lights only draw about 0.25 amps when both sides of the light are on . Each light has a 3 position switch... 1 side, both sides, and off. We have 3 of them across on the ceiling and they give off good light. We hooked the power up to a set of 3-way wall switches so that you can turn in on by the door or by the bed. The nice part about have separate switches on the lights themselves is you can turn off the rear light is someone is sleeping, or the front light if you are watching a movie.
    • The bed is being make out of 1" square aluminum tubing. I estimate it to only be about 13 lbs once finished. The tube will be cut and welded into a frame. The diamond shape braces will be 1" angle aluminum for support.
    • The buck in the picture is from private land not far from Duluth.  Not much ag land in the area.  The propertyI'm hunting has a lot of apple trees and thats what he's after in this picture.  Not a lot of oaks/acorns from what I can see, not sure what all the other properties have for food.  This is my first year hunting this land so my scouting hasn't been super extensive yet.
    • It wll depend some on farmland buck or northwoods brush eating buck. 1.5 easy, 2.5 fairly easy, 3.5 and older a much tougher buck to age. Used to send our jaws to Madelia,MN for aging and or we were lucky at the old Gene's Standard gas station in New York Mills MN as in the 80's and early 90's there was a guy from the DNR there aging them for us, the drawback was if you wanted to headmount they seemed to cut up the cheek to check the teeth or tooth that like a ring on a tree told him the age. I'd guess 4.5 year old in the picture but does mild winters and genetics play a part, I'd think so.
