Choosing a mattress is not a difficult task, but there might be few challenges when it comes to finding the best mattress for you. People opt for high-quality mattresses for several reasons. They are more comfortable than regular beds, and this makes them suitable for persons with posture issues. Higher-end mattresses are also made of high-quality materials to ensure their longevity and durability. Below is a list of high-end mattress options to spice up your bedroom:

Innerspring mattresses

Innerspring mattresses are one of the most well-known options for mattresses available in the market. Innerspring mattresses have three layers. The first consists of the wood frame to provide support. The second is packed with springs and coils to enhance comfort. The last layer comprises appropriate fibers and foam to provide cushioning. Due to the spaces between coils, this type of mattress provides ample ventilation and feels cooler during sleep.

Memory foam

Memory foam is a popular option among those looking to ease body pains and aches. The technology uses viscoelastic polyurethane to allow it to react to body heat and induce cooling. Due to the high density the mattress has, it is stronger and heavier thereby providing more support. Memory foam mattresses come with an inbuilt open-cell structure to allow them to compress and mold around the sleeper, which helps to relieve pressure.

Latex mattresses

Latex is a natural material derived from rubber saps. Its elasticity makes it a perfect choice for a mattress. With the flexibility, the bed offers spine support in whatever position you sleep in and aids proper circulation of blood while you sleep. The anti-microbial qualities of latex mattresses make them a top choice for those with allergies. Perforations provide ventilation so you can rest in a fresh, cool environment.

Waterbeds

Waterbeds come from soft polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or other similar materials. As the name implies, they contain a layer filled with water. Depending on the type you choose, waterbeds can be hard-sided or soft-sided. The mattress is usually heated and controlled by a smart thermostat to stimulate comfortable temperatures for conducive rest. Waterbeds distribute weight evenly to prevent bedsores in persons with mobility issues. It's considered to be a good choice for those with back pains and other aches due to pressure at certain points. There are several downsides, however. One is you will need to drain the water and disassemble the frame before moving the bed. They are extremely heavy and not always suitable for the upper floors of older homes.

Air beds

Air beds or mattresses are inflatable soft pads that can make for a good bed option. High-end air-filled mattresses inflate automatically with an electronic pump and balance the pressure within the chambers on their own. Many have adjustable remote controls for each side of the bed.

If your current mattress style is not working for you, now is the time to switch to one of the above options for a better night’s rest. If your current bedroom is not working for you, see your professional realtor about a new one.

Out of all the rooms of a house, the children's room is the one that can be the most fun to decorate. Bright colors and creative decorations are fun to plan for a children's room whether you're an expecting parent or if you and your child want to change up their room a bit. A children's room is also the room in your house that will see the most change as your child ages. Sure, it will be sad when they tell you they're too old for baby decorations, but it just means you get to make more fun changes to their room together. You can be creative in decorating just about every area of a child's bedroom. So, here are some fun ideas, from the floor to the ceiling, that your kids will love.

Floors

A children's room floor sees a lot of wear and tear. Spilled drinks, crayons, and other forms of destruction are sure meet the floors of a child's play space. So you probably don't want to leave exposed expensive hardwood flooring; at least until they're older. There are, however, a number of creative ways to floor a children's room that are fun and kid-friendly. Foam puzzle tiles are a classic example. They are colorful and can be placed in any order you and your child decide. They're fun to build together, plus they're soft and squishy enough to help you avoid some crying fits when your child falls down. When one of them starts to get worn down or stained, just pop it out and replace it with another.

Walls

There are a lot more fun things to do with your kid's room's walls other than just painting them a fun color. Painting is a good place to start, though, so pick some bright, pastel colors that are fun but also easy on the eyes. You could stick with the same old pink and blue for girl and boy, but a more creative option is to go with green, orange, or purple hues. Plus you might get more use out of them if you have a second child who will eventually move in to that room. For other creative wall ideas you could...
  • Build a whiteboard or chalkboard into the wall
  • Make a super-hero changing station where you hang your child's costumes
  • Hang a wall-sized map to get them interested in learning
  • Paint or buy a tree decal that they can turn into a family tree
  • Paint the walls white or light blue and buy a sticker kit to make the room look like an aquarium

Ceiling

There's no need to stop the fun once you reach the ceiling in your children's room. It may seem like there's not much you can do to make the ceiling interesting but you might be surprised. You could...
  • Buy glow in the dark stickers like stars, moons, and space ships
  • Buy a projector that shoots lights onto the ceiling
  • Hang lights and fans that fit the theme of the room (like clouds, for example)
  • Paint the ceiling to be an extension of the scene on the wall
  Now that you have some ideas for your kids room, try to make them your own by adding something unique. Have fun!

Is your bedroom in need of a slight makeover?  Surprisingly enough, many people don't spend too much time thinking about how their bedroom looks.  How many times have you been on a tour of a friend's new home, and the tour stops short of their sleeping area?  If you don't want to fall into the trap of feeling like your bedroom isn't a "show off" room, then take a few steps to jazz it up a bit. By paying a little attention to a few areas in your bedroom, you can leave that door open with no shame. New Bedding - Depending on your sleeping preferences, your bed may well be the biggest piece of furniture in your home.  Coincidentally, your bedding may also be one of the largest decorations in your home.  Do you like your bedding?  Does it match your home and personality well?  If it leaves you wanting, then consider outfitting your bed with a new bedding set.  With this one improvement, the entire mood of your bedroom can change.  If you can manage to find curtains or drapes that complement your bedding, it will tie your bedroom together in a big way. Floors - Bedrooms may have the least amount of floorspace visible, but that doesn't mean that they should be neglected.  Consider buying a decorative rug for your room.  Or, if you're feeling adventurous, consider installing a new carpet or flooring.  The sky is the limit here, and any change made is likely to be an improvement. Laundry - Piles of unfolded or dirty laundry can be an eyesore. Even a visible laundry hamper is enough to be a distraction.  Consider outfitting your closet door with a hanging laundry basket, or instituting a "no dirty laundry in the bedroom" rule for yourself. Lighting - If you rely solely on overhead lighting in your bedroom, then consider buying a lamp or two.  Lamps will serve to highlight your furniture, as well as create a more relaxing environment.
