Layla Mattress Has a New Modern Look

By | Sleep Industry News | No Comments

It’s a new year and a new look for Layla mattress. There are a lot of changes so keep reading to see what’s changed. What HASN’T changed is the mattress itself (inside).

Just to recap what makes Layla unique:

  • Flippable 2-sided mattress with a soft and a more firm side
  • Copper infused foam that emphasizes pain relief

New Layla Sleep Logo and Colors

New Look Emphasizes Being Awake Rather than Being Asleep

Layla’s new brand has launched with new colors which include variations of orange, light grey, and green. The brand wants to make you think of being your best awake self with more energy. So goodbye purple color scheme and hello  brighter colors.

Rather than a focus on sleep, Layla wants to shift their focus to being more AWAKE. For example, how to be a better person awake and perform better during the day.

Here’s the new Layla logo.

The website has been redesigned to reflect the new look.

New Mattress Cover and Mattress Design

Goodbye diamond/cube shaped patterns, hello hexagons! Layla is using hexagons as our primary design pattern across all their products for an updated look. We think it looks sportier.

The biggest change is the mattress cover. Layla has updated the cover on all their products but with the mattress cover, it’s labeled to make it much easier to identify the soft and firm side of the mattress.

In addition Layla has a proprietary “softening” process in their fabric that makes their covers much softer than other brands.

The Layla Pillow is Now Adjustable!

We love the Layla pillow, it’s one of our top picks. But it’s even better because Layla pillows now have a zipper so you can easily remove and add fill in order to customize the feel and loft. Hooray – we love adjustable pillows!

New Goodies in the Box

The box reflects the new look along with all of the packaging.

And Layla has improved the unboxing experience. Now the box comes with more than just a mattress. You’ll also get a welcome box, filled with goodies including a Layla drawstring bag, Layla T-Shirt, a plastic wrapper opener, brochures, instructional cards, and stickers.

Layla Mattress Prices

Here are the prices and sizes of a Layla Mattress:
TWIN: $499
TWIN XL: $599
FULL: $799
QUEEN: $899
KING: $999
CAL KING: $999

In addition to the mattress and pillow, Layla has a topper, bed frame and foundation.

Best Feather and Down Hotel Pillows

By | Bedding, feather/down | No Comments

Before we get into our favorite feather and down pillow, check out this holiday promo. Pacific Coast is a classic feature pillow company that supplies pillows to many hotels like Hilton. That’s where I first discovered it.

The Pacific Coast Standard DownAround Pillow

Note: we review quality mattresses and bedding products and as part of that may earn a small commission from any sales.

And if you stay in a hotel or experience their pillow they’ll even help you pinpoint exactly what pillow you slept on. If you’re like us and check brand names of your favorite bedding when you’re traveling!

Feather and Down Pillow

Here’s a little more about this wonderful pillow:

  • 525 fill Hyperclean® down.
  • The Resilia® feather filled inner pillow delivers firm cushioning that keeps your head from sinking to the mattress while the exterior is made of fluffy down to cushion your tired head.
  • Pillow can be machine washed and dried for easy care.
  • 300 Thread count, 100% cotton Barrier Weave® down and feather proof fabric
  • 30 Night Comfort Guarantee
  • Allergy Free Limited Warranty
  • 5 Year Limited Warranty
  • Preferred in over 2 million hotel rooms

See Hotel Pillows

 What Pillows Does Hilton Use?

Pacific Coast is the brand I discovered when I stayed at a Hilton hotel for a conference. The pillow was so soft and dreamy that I checked to see what it was. I normally don’t sleep on a feather and down pillow but this one was so soft and comfy that I loved it!

This company has been making feather and down pillows since 1884! This is a classic feather pillow and they make everything from affordable pillows to higher priced luxury pillows and bedding.

The pillow I checked was 75% down. This one is 100% – check out their down hotel pillow.

Whatever you get, protect it with a pillow protector and it will stay cleaner and last much longer!

4 Ways Hotel Pillows May Be Different From Ones You Get at Home

Have you ever bought a hotel pillow only to come home and find it’s not the same? Here are some reasons why…

  1. Hotels may use a smaller pillow case (2″ shorter) to plump up the pillows and make them appear fluffier.
  2. Hotels sometimes use 2 pillow protectors on each pillow to reduce air flow to the pillow to keep it fluffier throughout the night.
  3. Hotel pillows are slept on and washed regularly which makes them get softer faster. You may need to wash and dry your pillow a few times to get the same effect.
  4. Pillows from hotels may be made especially for that hotel. You can look at the label and get as close as possible. They have to last as long as possible too, so the price may be higher.

Hotels know that when you have guests asking all the time if they can buy your pillows (or are stealing them), then you know you have selected the right pillow. Now you can buy a hotel pillow and get that hotel stay feel with a Pacific Coast pillow. It’s one of our top picks and what we sleep on at home!

Sleep Too Hot or Cool? A Guide to Getting the Temperature Just Right

By | Best Sleep | No Comments

At Unbox Mattress, we’re obsessed with getting the best night sleep. And while there are many, many reasons you’re not getting the best sleep you can,  your bedding is a part of that.

If your room is too hot, your body will struggle to keep your body temperature at a comfortable level. Too cold and you can’t sleep well. The climate or time of the year (hello summer) you live in can be a factor. Night sweats, hormonal changes, and even aging can make throw off your body temperature. 

It’s a challenge to find the right temperature for the best sleep. Here are some ways we’ve found to help.

Note: if you shop through our links we may earn a commission.

Sleep Issue: You Sleep Too Hot

Problem: You get hot and sweaty at night (and it’s not from sex). 

Sleeping too hot is one of the most common sleep issues. According to a survey by Sleeprate, 80% of people said they slept better during cooler months compared to summer months. And this sleep study says sleep is actually disturbed more with too much heat than with by being too cold. 

Solution #1: get a new mattress. If you normally don’t sleep hot, it could be your mattress. Memory foam heats up, softens up, sinks and traps body heat then cooks you all night long.

All foam mattresses with large sheets of foam stacked on each other don’t allow for airflow, which means you sleep hotter. Here’s the mattress we recommend if you sleep hot. This recommendation is based on tests by Consumer Reports on cooling beds as well as our own experience. 

Solution #2: If you sleep hot because you tend to be sweatier or you’re going through hot flashes (menopausal women), it may be more than your mattress. In that case, we recommend a bed fan or cooler. Products like a BedJet or Chilipad can cool you down fast – for a price.

The BedJet is a bed fan that recirculates cooler air on the ground or warms the air. Turn it on and you get cool within seconds.

The Chilipad is not a fan, rather it’s a mattress pad that circulates water through a network of tiny tubes. It has a temperature range between 55°- 110° F which covers just about anyone who sleeps hot. Sleep in a hot climate? Try using a Chilipad to cool down to 55°!

These products work well but they’re also more pricey. The next solution is less expensive (but may take longer to work or not work as well).

Simple&Opulence 100% Stone Washed Linen 4pcs Hollowed-Out Design Solid Sheet Set (Queen, Linen)Simple&Opulence 100% Stone Washed Linen 4pcs Hollowed-Out Design Solid Sheet Set (Queen, Linen)

Solution #3: Cooler blankets and bedding. 

To stay cool, you need a blanket that allows good airflow in and out of your sleep space. Trapped air heats up quickly which raises your body temperature. Look for a blanket with natural or synthetic venting structures.

Blanket materials with good breathability include: Regular cotton, Egyptian cotton, Linen, Satin, Viscose, Rayon Blends (e.g., cotton & linen). We really love linen for the summer or just for cooling. Just be aware that even though it’s not the softest option, it softens up as you wash it.

Another thing that keeps you too hot: sweating. When you have wind to cool you off that’s not a bad thing. When it makes your bedding moist, it is.

A cooling blanket should be made of fabric with good absorption properties or hygroscopy. It will then “wick” or draw moisture from the air instead of trapping it next to you.

Here are some blankets with good absorbency: cotton, hemp, bamboo, flax linen, and microfibers.

We like Sheex brand performance sheets. They are sold with just the bottom sheet or just the top, so if you prefer not to sleep with a top sheet, you can just buy the fitted one. 

SHEEX – Original Performance Fitted Sheet, 1 (One) Fitted Sheet ONLY, Ultra-Soft Fabric Transfers Body Heat and Breathes Better Than Traditional Cotton, Ecru (Queen)SHEEX – Original Performance Fitted Sheet, 1 (One) Fitted Sheet ONLY, Ultra-Soft Fabric Transfers Body Heat and Breathes Better Than Traditional Cotton, Ecru (Queen)


Solution #3: a warm mist humidifier.

It’s easier to warm humid air. A warm mist humidifier can help make your room warmer without turning up the heat for the whole house. We like top fill models and ones with larger tanks so it’s easier to refill and you don’t have to refill it as often.

Venta is our favorite humidifier/air purifier/diffuser. It’s not a warm mist humidifier, it isn’t warm or cool. While this product is an investment but it’s one of those things you can’t live without once you have one. Plus, the Venta has the added benefit of being easy to clean. There are no filters to replace, it uses tap water, is easy to fill and you can add your favorite essential oil (like sleep-promoting lavender) to the water.

Sleep Issue: You Get Too Cold

Problem: you freeze most nights and spend hours trying to warm up so you can relax and fall asleep. Or you wake up freezing cold during the night.

This problem is easier to solve than sleeping hot. The ideal sleeping temperature is between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit. Most people say 65 degrees. Falling temperatures (like what happens when you go from being warmer to being cooler) help you fall asleep. However, anyone who’s been winter camping, knows if you’re too cold you won’t get great sleep either.

Fact: rooms between 60 and 68 degrees encourage the body to produce melatonin. Melatonin not only promotes sleep, it’s also a powerful anti-aging hormone.

Solution #1: the BedJet or Chilipad. This solution has the added benefit of working in too hot or too cold conditions. It’s more expensive but it works.

Solution #2: a heated mattress pad.

If, like a lot of us, you get cold and someone you sleep in the same bed with gets too warm, a dual control heating mattress pad can help. These go underneath your sheets but that means they can’t be kicked off or fall off the bed.

We have this heated mattress pad (pictured below) and like how quick it heats up. You can set it for 1, 2 or 10 hour auto shut off times. There are no cords running underneath and you don’t have to plug in both sides for it to work.

After testing several brands of heated mattress pads, this is by far our favorite:

Newlifeelectronic Heated Mattress Pad, Electric Heating Bed Toppers with EasySet Control and Timer, Fast Heating Technology, Ultra-Fresh Anti-Bacteria Extra Comfort, White (King Size)Newlifeelectronic Heated Mattress Pad, Electric Heating Bed Toppers with EasySet Control and Timer, Fast Heating Technology, Ultra-Fresh Anti-Bacteria Extra Comfort, White (King Size)



Solution #3: an electric blanket.

Most electric blankets are made from polyester because which is naturally more flame-retardant and keeps its shape better after washings. Cotton is softer but less flame resistant. You can also get fleece heated blankets.

What to look for in an electric blanket

Thicker is better for warmth and if a blanket is too thin you risk being able to feel the wires through the blanket, which isn’t very cozy at all.

Your electric blanket or heated mattress pad can get stains and odors. So find one that has detachable controls (like the heated mattress pad pictured above). That way you can wash and dry it to keep it sanitary. Washing your blanket wrong can ruin it so be sure to check the instructions and follow them. Every heated blanket and mattress pad we link to in this article is machine washable. 

Look for an electric blanket that has the cord on the side, not down the middle so you can plug it into the nearest outlet. Is the cord long enough? Also, it’s easier to make the bed without dealing with the cord in the middle.

Your blanket’s controls should also be simple to see and use, even at night. If you sleep with someone else, dual controls are so helpful. Also, some blankets have one setting and others have many temperature settings to choose from. This one has 10. We prefer a digital readout rather than a dial because it’s tough to maneuver dials in your sleep. The one we linked to has a dimmer so as to not keep you awake.

If you haven’t found what you’re looking for, here are more bed cooling options. 

Does being too hot or cold affect your sleep? If so, how did you solve the problem? Let us know in the comments.

Used Purple Mattress: Where to Find One Near You

By | Mattress Sale | No Comments

Do you want to learn where to find a used Purple mattress? Here’s our quick guide to finding one for a great price. Even though they may be in like new condition, they’re sort of like a car. They lose value as soon as they’re out of the box.

used Purple bed

Note: we may earn a small commission if you shop through our links.

You can get a great deal on a used Purple mattress if you know where to look. 

Where to Find a Used Purple Mattress

Avoid shipping and do local pickup or classifieds sites such as eBay and Craigslist. You’ll always find used Purple mattresses there. Just search for your state and city. It’s not hard to find a 2nd hand purple mattress.

We prefer eBay because of the rating system.
Search for a Used Purple Mattress on eBay

Shop for a Used Purple Mattress on eBay

Find your city and state on Craiglist and search in the section for beds. Always ask to see the bed before you buy on Craigslist. Ask if it’s a factory second. Look for any deformities in the polymer (any divots, dips, etc). Ask how long they’ve had it.

You can always message us to see if we know of any used Purple mattresses in your area.

Adopt a Bed is a Utah charity that sometimes gets Purple mattresses. Call them at 801-266-1288  to see. They’re located at 583 W Billinis Rd #1, South Salt Lake, UT 84115. They also accept returns from Purple and other online brands so you can get a refund. See how Utah mattress donations work.

KSL Classifieds

You can score an even better deal on a used bed if you are willing to do a little work and wash the cover that may have some spots or be less than clean. Purple mattresses are easy to clean.

Did you know that all Purple mattresses have a removable cover? You can unzip the cover on all Purple beds. Just wash the cover in a regular washing machine (we recommend using a gently cycle and air drying). Use regular detergent and some Borax. Spray any stains or spots with OxyClean white.

Always use a mattress protector. We highly recommend purchasing a new Purple mattress protector directly from Purple. You may be able to find one on the sites listed below for less (worth a try).

Where Can I Test a Purple Mattress?

Where you can test a Purple mattress before you buy:

  • Alpine, Utah at Purple headquarters. All Purple products are on display and you can try them out. Open every day except Sunday.
  • Adopt a Bed in Salt Lake City, Utah (see above for details)
  • Select Mattress Firm Stores
  • Denver Mattress
  • Sleep Sherpa showroom in Minnesota

Donate Mattress Utah – New Pickup and Drop Off Location in Salt Lake

By | Sleep Industry News | 2 Comments

Donate Mattress Utah

Mattress donation UtahEver tried to donate a mattress in Utah? Good luck! Most charities (like Goodwill, Deseret Industries, and Salvation Army) won’t accept a used mattress. Some are on a case by case basis. Case in point. The International Rescue Committee lists items refugees need in Utah. In their list of items not accepted? Mattresses.

Adopt a Bed is a new Utah charity that accepts mattress returns. You can drop them off by appointment at their location on 3300 S in Salt Lake City OR call to arrange a pickup by filling out their form online and they’ll come and get your mattress for you.

You can donate a mattress in Provo (Utah County), St. George, Ogden, Salt Lake and more. Adopt a Bed, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, covers most of the state.

Drop off your bed at

Adopt a Bed
583 W Billinis Rd #1
South Salt Lake, UT 84115

Call to arrange: 385-333-6692 or Go here and fill out the form to request a pickup of your mattress.

If you have a mattress return from a boxed brand, you know it’s like new. You’d like to see it go to a good cause. After all, it’s usually only 100 days old or less. To get a full refund on most boxed mattresses you need to select how it will be returned. These are mattresses you bought online and now need a receipt in order to get your refund. Adopt a Bed can accept mattresses one year old or newer.

They accept most brands that you buy online, including Purple mattress, mattresses purchased on Amazon, Nectar, Dreamcloud, Casper, Ghostbed, Voila, Avocado, Lull, Brentwood Home, Brooklyn Bedding, etc.

Please be aware that there are for profit companies that represent themselves as a charity. Emma Petersen told us that sometimes companies say that they work with Adopt a Bed that people who genuinely want to donate their mattress are sometimes misled. So be sure to contact them directly.

Adopt a Bed donates mattresses to homeless shelter, domestic violence centers and more.

We interviewed Emma Peterson, founder of Adopt a Bed, about how she got started and who they help with mattress donations. Watch the video below:
