Choosing a Mattress: Bed in a Box vs Tempur-pedic
One of the toughest decisions to make when moving into a new home is always what type of mattress to buy. There are so many options and styles out there that it can feel overwhelming. Two of the top brands most include in their mattress shopping experience are Bed In A Box and Sealy Tempur-pedic. I have tried both and, as someone who has a bum knee and a sleep disorder, I can actually say that my experience was enjoyable on both of these. In hopes of making your mattress search a little easier, here is a detailed comparison between Bed In A Box and Tempur-pedic.
Bed In A Box
The main product Bed In A Box sells is the memory foam mattress. I will tell you from a personal point of view that, once I tried and experienced memory foam technology, I could never go back to a regular spring mattress. There is something about it that just makes your night more enjoyable.
One really great thing about Bed In A Box is that they offer a 120-night no risk trial period, where you can keep the mattress for over 3 months and, if you feel you aren’t satisfied with your purchase, they allow you to return it with no hassle. I find that comforting as a consumer because, as one of the millions who suffers with a sleep disorder, it is nice to know that if the mattress I bought isn’t helping my sleeping experience I am free to take it back.
Not only does Bed In A Box offer the free trial period, they also include a 20-year warranty. If something ever goes wrong with your mattress, you can exchange it for a new one at no cost to you.

The pricing for a Bed In A Box mattress is quite reasonable also. It ranges from $1,400 to the most expensive mattress being a little under $2,600, which is the Serenity Gel with CoolRest King sized Memory foam mattress. With technology made to absorb the heat from your body, reducing night sweats, and the ability to release that heat back to you when your body begins to feel cold, it isn’t any wonder why so many buy this particular mattress. With 13 inches of mattress beneath you, the consumer can sleep comfortably all through the night.
With reviews from many happy customers all raving about the comfort afforded them, Bed In A Box has a good reputation for quality products.
When I was searching for a mattress, one thing I considered was temperature control. I like to stay cool when sleeping, so Tempur-Pedic was a natural choice as one of my considerations. The Tempur-Pedic mattress reacts directly to your body’s needs, which for me, was keeping me cool so I could have a good night’s sleep.
Tempur-Pedic is made using technology developed by NASA that responds to the changes in your body as you sleep. Similar to the CoolRest technology, it absorbs the excess heat from your body and disperses it throughout the three layered cooling system of the bed. Not only are you guaranteed better quality of sleep, ultimately defeating the age old problem of over heating at night, they also developed a mattress that cradles and conforms to your body. Soft enough to find comfort, but firm enough to give the support needed for a refreshing night’s sleep.
Tempur-Pedic is also very versatile as they continually develop new and better mattresses to suit the various needs of many. Whether you need a mattress for a heavier adults, you prefer your mattress more firm, or you’re one of the many who prefers a softer touch, Tempur-Pedic promises the right kind of mattress for anyone no matter your preference. Tempur-Pedic mattresses usually range between $2-$5,000 and come in all sizes. With over 700 customers giving this brand 5 stars, I can see this brand’s continued success.
Between the two brands, I could not say which is better, as both have admirable qualities that offer consumers the opportunity for a better sleep experience. The right mattress for you is a personal preference. The dedication both companies exhibit towards their customers as well as the irrefutable results they continually display as they develop new and better mattresses is a testament to the ideals of excellence behind their individual brands. So, if you are a first time shopper or a seasoned customer, I can say that it would not be a bad idea to begin your search here.
