Everything you need to know about roll up mattresses

Roll up mattresses are gaining popularity for furniture suppliers and customers alike. There are many benefits to rolled mattresses, and so many reasons why you might consider this mattress type for the bedrooms in your home. 

Because roll up mattresses are a much newer type of furniture compared to traditional mattresses, you may never have seen or slept on one before, and you might be wondering what makes this type of mattress a good option for your home. Read on to learn everything you need to know about roll up mattresses, and shop the selection now at Corcoran’s

What are roll up mattresses? 

As the name suggests, this is a type of mattress that is delivered rolled up in a small box. One thing to note is that this is still a full size mattress made with traditional mattress materials. It is not a blow up mattress or another temporary solution; it is designed to go on your bed and be used for every night sleep. 

A rolled mattress is first placed in a protective cover, just as traditional mattresses are when a supplier is preparing to transport or deliver them. Then it is flattened and compressed by a vacuum-sealing machine. Finally, the mattress is rolled up so that it is as compact as possible, and it fits into a much smaller space than a traditional mattress. 

When you receive your mattress, you will unpack it from the vacuum-sealed packaging and lay it out on your bed. Over time (usually an hour to a few hours), it will slowly take in air and expand, and it will return to its original size. 

What are the benefits of buying roll up mattresses? 

There are some great logistical reasons to opt for a rolled mattress. Because in their packaging they are so much smaller than a traditional mattress, they are super convenient to carry. 

If you want to purchase a mattress and take it home with you in your own car, you can easily tuck a roll up option in your boot or back seat. And if you’re ordering online, delivery will likely be quick because a delivery van or truck can carry more rolled mattresses than their larger, traditional counterparts. 

Likewise, roll up mattresses are easy to move around when you get them home. If your bedroom is on the second floor of your home, or if you live in an apartment that’s not on the ground floor, carrying a rolled mattress up the stairs is much easier than maneuvering a large and unwieldy mattress. 

What are roll up mattresses made of? 

Roll up mattresses are made out of the same general materials as traditional mattresses. They generally are fully or at least partially made of foam, as this allows them to be compressed more easily. However, many rolled mattresses also feature traditional layers of pocket springs and fabrics that will offer all the comfort and support of a non-rolled option. 

And just like traditional mattresses, roll up mattresses often have other features such as antibacterial layers, thermoregulation, and more, which will ensure you feel cool and fresh while you sleep. You can also choose rolled mattresses offering a variety of support levels, from soft, to medium, to firm, for your ideal sleeping setup. 

Are rolled mattresses as good as traditional mattresses? 

There have been many improvements in roll up mattresses over the years, and now they are completely comparable in quality to traditional mattress types. They offer the same depth, softness, and support, and they are designed to last just as long as other mattresses. They are simply extra convenient and versatile when it comes to delivering and setting them up in your home! 

As with all mattresses, you can find rolled mattresses to suit a variety of budgets. You can shop for a wallet-friendly option that is best suited for a guest bedroom, or splurge more on an investment item that is ideal for your own bed. 

All mattresses need to be replaced eventually. The springs will begin to become stiff and the foam will begin to sag. However, roll up mattresses can have a lifespan of over a decade, just as long as their traditional counterparts.
