For me, a good night’s sleep is paramount to anything I can achieve the following day. Bad nights sleep = me walking round forgetting what I’ve walked into a room for and loosing track what mid sentence, I’m pretty sure I’m not alone. It’s safe to say I love my sleep, or my bed if I’m really narrowing it down, and a decent mattress (along with pillows) can help make that magic sleep thing happen. So deciding that my sleep sanctuary was looking a little tired (see what I did there?) I decided it was time to give my bedroom a makeover, complete with new bed and mattress;
My once lush superking size one, which dominated my room, no longer served a purpose. With no kids jumping into bed in the morning (bar one little 3 year old who quite often trudges in in the wee small hours) there’s simply no need for one as huge. So I’ve downsized giving me the opportunity to test out a lovely new squishy memory foam mattress from FUÜM.
A little more delving into the concept of a FUÜM mattress, and after accidentally spending 2 nights sleeping on it upside down (doh!) I found out that it’s made from a solid, foam base layer which creates a high-density base for the other layers. (I wondered why it was so hard!) There’s a lot more to it that just being a foam mattress.
At the centre of the mattress is an Airflow gel layer with unique cooling properties that keeps you cool in summer ( I can vouch for that) while warm in winter ( it’s lived up to a few colder summer nights so I guess that’s true.
The lack of springs is the first thing you notice, along with not waking up with aches and pains as instead, your body’s been gently supported by the memory foam. The second plus was having it delivered, rolled up in a box. This made storing it while I decorated the room and waited for my bed to get delivered so much easier.
Watching it uncurl and take its shape is quite fascinating too! There is a slight chemical type smell which lingers for a couple of days but nothing I couldn’t handle, just worth noting its normal and will go. I’ve had to the chance to compare a FUÜM mattress to see what the difference is as my son has a cheap and cheerful memory foam mattress and you can really notice the difference, a FUÜM one is much more supportive with loosing its soft, melt into bed feel, if you’re wondering.
So my little bedroom makeovers complete accompanied by good nights’ sleep in abundance!
