The Best Mattresses in a Box — The Guide 2018

It used to be that the only way to get a mattress required going to a mattress store and testing them out on-site, with a persistent and persuasive salesman on hand pushing you to buy. The whole process was inconvenient and costly, so it’s no wonder that companies found a new (and seriously successful) way to sell mattresses—direct-to-consumer, and delivered in a box. This strategy results in lower prices and better convenience. All of these companies offer free trial periods (the typical number is 100 days) so you can be even more sure of your choice than if you had tested out for a few minutes in a showroom.

This model has been so successful that the market is saturated with options—so much so that choosing one has become an increasingly impossible task. Through weeks of research and testing, we rounded up 10 of our favorites for you to check out and get started on achieving the bed (and sleep) of your dreams — plus, they’re ALL on sale for Memorial Day Weekend!

Get the Look: A Grown Up, Frozen-Inspired Scandi Royal Bedroom

Last month, Disney’s Frozen made its Broadway debut. While I can’t comment on the success of the transference from screen to stage, I can skate down memory lane to when Frozen first premiered in theaters and the cheesy, cartoony kids bedroom decorations overwhelmed the internet. So I propose we leave the snowflakes behind and settle in with some gorgeous Scandinavian design inspired by the movie to create a bedroom fit for a queen. It will still serve Frozen vibes, but in a much more grown up way. It’s a style that’s worth melting for.

Before and After: An Unsightly Attic Becomes a Stylish Bedroom (with a Walk-In Closet to Boot)

When interior stylist Jaimy and her husband Marcel wanted a quieter place to live, they decided to move to her hometown…where they were able to buy her childhood home. To truly make it their own, the new home needed quite a few updates. One of the most striking transformations has been the attic. The idea was to let daughter Dalí have the master bedroom, so Marcel and Jaimy could inhabit the top floor. It sure is spacious enough, but a lot work needed to be done. Like most attics, it had been used for storage without paying much attention to aesthetics. An outdated sink unit was still in place, but slowly falling apart. This floor was, to put it mildly, rather depressing.

The "Make and Pile" Method Might Save Your Messy Bedroom

When faced with a messy bedroom, sometimes it’s easier to just shut the door than to climb the mental mountain of starting to actually pick it up. Disorder begets disorder and entropy is an easier, downhill path to take (especially when only you will see the room). But what if you were to flip the script and use an orderly room to motivate you before you put even a single errant item away?
