How To Make Your Own Mattress

Jan 03, 2013

Why would anyone want to make their own mattress? Because more and more people are wanting control over what they eat, drink, breath, and surround themselves with inside of their homes. From carpet to paint, furniture to bedding, people are waking up to the fact that chemicals are poisoning our planet and they are wanting to limit their exposure to those chemicals.

Nest Bedding encourages this move towards a chemical-free lifestyle by providing products and components for consumers to create their own mattresses and bedding with natural and organic covers, sheets, comfort layers and latex components. By purchasing these components, consumers can have access to high quality, non-toxic, American made components to create their own mattresses. 

To make your own mattress, you simply need to purchase a cover, whether it is our natural or organic cover or any kind of cover, and choose a support layer thick enough to support your weight and the weight of a partner if you co-sleep, then a comfort layer to allow for proper blood circulation and pressure relief, then ensure some type of breathable layer, such as cotton, wool or kapok, so your body heat can dissipate and perspiration can evaporate. And remember, it's your project, so don't fret if you don't get it right the first time, you can always add or subtract other elements until you get it right.

We have even taken these simple ideas and implemented them into our Nest Organics line by providing zippers and customizable and replaceable elements to our mattresses so consumers are able to not only customize their own mattress but lengthen the life span by having the ability to replace the layers and the quilted surface.

So, whether you choose to buy high quality components available in our store and online, or if you choose to buy one of our great Nest Organics mattresses, Nest Bedding helps you take control of your sleep environment.
