Mattresses are comprised of three basic components
- Support Structure
- Top Layers and
Read below for a variety of options for each of these.
1. Support Options
Foam – foam/latex creates its own structure when secured by the outer layers (which we zipper so components can be replaced.) We use many kinds of foam, from blended to all natural organic Dunlop and Natural Talalay latex.
Bonell Coil – these are a traditional style of coil, all connected into one coil structure. They are very strong, but tend to transfer some motion when more than one person is in a bed.
Pocket Coil – pocket coils are a premium type of coil that still gives the lively feel of coil, while limiting the motion transfer. At Sleep Boutique, carry two different types depending on the support you need. In addition, we place supports around the edge, so that it is more comfortable to sit on the edge of your bed, and there is less roll-off when laying on the bed.
2. Top Layer Options
Top layers are added over the structure to create comfort, and can be adjusted to dramatically vary the firmness and feel of the mattress. They can also be flipped and replaced to give your mattress a lifetime of use. In fact, at Sleep Boutique we use multiple top layers: the first can affect the overall firmness in various sections, such as right and left of mattress for couples. As well we can adjust the toppers shoulder, torso and foot area. This helps us create softer areas that accommodate pain points of the sleeper. We also can give advice on which materials breath the best for optimal temperature regulation.
Latex – Latex comes in various densities to adjust firmness around the mattress. Latex is an all-natural product produced from the sap of a rubber tree. It is naturally cool and breathable, and gives no chemical off-gassing. It is also dense and durable in the long term.
JOMA Wool – This comes from New Zealand sheep, and has a certain crimping/compression quality that gives great temperature regulating qualities, with natural feeling comfort. It tends to be quite dense, but it creates a very natural top layer.
Memory Foam – Also known as visco elastic, this is a high-quality foam that can be very solid and dense, or lighter, to adjust the firmness of the mattress. It is often promoted by big-box stores in their top end products. It is great for pressure point relief and contouring, but can be warm and harder to move on.
Poly Foams – We carry a large variety of foams that come in different densities and firmnesses. We utilize the higher grade foams in most models, but will use mid range for RVs, Guest Beds, and Kids beds. All our foam is Made in Canada or the USA.
3. Exterior Fabric Options
Exterior fabrics affect the outer texture of the mattress and its visual aesthetic. They can woven and knitted and come in different weights. We then will quilt to various materials including JOMA wool, Polyester, and Foam. They are potentially replaceable. We have many options here as well, including:
Bamboo Blends – We use ultra-soft bamboo fabric blended with polyester to create a natural feel while maintaining strength. Two weights are available it does have a little stretch which helps with contouring. We carry them in Flat and a variety of Quilted options including JOMA wool.
Organic Cotton – Organic cotton is the ultimate natural-feeling exterior. We carry in flat and quilted to JOMA wool. Very luxurious and breathable.
Polyester Blends – We offer blended polyester Woven fabrics and other materials to balance strength with loft. These fabrics are stronger than knits, but don’t stretch. This can make the surface a touch firmer; however, they have great durability characteristics.
Vinyl – If you need a strong waterproof mattress that can be wiped clean and ready fast, we’ve got vinyl exterior casing that will do just the job. These are often used in group homes, camps, day cares, nursing homes, and hospitals, and like all our mattresses, can be replaced and built to any size.
