About Us

Unbox Mattress is a small business dedicated to helping you get better sleep for a better life.

I’m Janet and I love sharing my real life experiences in my quest to get the best sleep. A few years ago I became obsessed with getting the bedding in my room right. I got smart lights so I could easily dim my lights, we upgraded our mattress (less motion transfer means my husband no longer wakes me up at night) and I found the best pillow. We’re still working on the sheets!

After meeting with several mattress CEOs and seeing that most mattress reviewers were male and never included kids, I wanted to represent a more holistic view with the whole family.

My motto is: never sleep without a mattress protector.

I believe everyone is different when it comes to what mattress works for them. With boxed brands you get to try mattresses in your own home and return them if they’re not a fit. There’s really nothing like actually sleeping on a bed for a few weeks to know. We’ve actually seen mattresses develop imprints in as little as 90 days, so you need to know what you’re buying.

3 Things I Love

Over time, I’ve developed obsession with sleep health and finding products that add comfort and enhance sleep. Here’s a list of my favorites so far:

1. Purple Powerbase

I love sleeping, and my powerbase allows me to enjoy luxury sleep with massage but the best part is it reduced my husband’s snoring and makes it easier for me to work (use my laptop in bed). Read my purple powerbase review to find more about why I love it.

2. Purple Mattress

My obsession with Purple continues. Why? Because Purple is not a copycat bed. With it’s unique comfort grid top, there’s little else in the market like it. It’s the best affordable luxury that you can invest in. We have a Purple4 king size mattress. Read our purple mattress review to find out what makes it the best mattress.

3. Brooklyn Bedding Shredded Memory Foam Pillow

After trying so many pillows that went flat within a few months, got lumpy and wouldn’t hold its shape, or else wasn’t very comfortable, I found the Brooklyn Bedding Shredded Memory Foam pillow (this is an affiliate link which means we earn a small commission on any purchases, thanks for supporting our business). They call it the best pillow ever. Even though I have other pillows I like, I agree, it’s the best for the price.
