  • 4 Steps to Choosing a Mattress

    Posted on March 6, 2015

    The Mountain High Sleep Gallery carries Serta Mattresses, the world's best mattress and the 2014 Women's Choice Award for most recommended mattress! Serta designs memory foam mattresses, innerspring mattresses, memory foam and innerspring hybrids, adjustable foundations, pillows, bedding, and more! With so many variations on comfort level, style, and foundation, it's important to do your research to determine what style of mattress is best for your lifestyle.

    1. Determine your needs:
    1. What do you like or dislike about your current mattress?
    2. Have your needs changed since you began using your current mattress? (i.e. Do you now share the bed with a partner or child? Have your sleeping needs changed in any way?)
    3. How much space do you have in your bedroom?
    4. Talk to your partner to determine if their needs align with yours.
    5. When considering price, remember that you will spend 1/3 of your life in bed. Choosing a new mattress is an investment in your health and a great night's sleep.


    2. Choose a type:
    Memory foam vs. innerspring vs. memory foam/innerspring hybrid? Plush vs. firm vs. pillowtop?


    An innerspring mattress is made with a steel coil innerspring support system, with various foams and fibers on top to provide comfort at the surface. Serta offers a variety of innerspring constructions, including their Continuous Support® innerspring and their most advanced Duet™ Coil Individually Wrapped Coil-in-Coil innerspring.

    Did You Know? The number of coils in a mattress varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and is based on a queen-size mattress (i.e. twin mattress have fewer coils, kings have more); but the coil count is not necessarily as important as the construction, and Serta’s unique coil construction achieves greater comfort and support.

    Memory Foam

    A memory foam mattress features an all-foam support core that works to balance proper support with pressure-relieving comfort. The top layers of the mattress include memory foam, as well as other comfort foams and fibers. Only Serta offers its exclusive Cool Action™ gel memory foam for enhanced cooling comfort and more support where you need it most, in their iComfort® gel memory foam mattresses.

    Innerspring Hybrid

    A memory foam hybrid mattress combines the support of a traditional steel coil innerspring with the comfort of memory foam. Serta's memory foam hybrid mattresses feature Serta's innovative iSeries® technology. This technology features Serta’s Cool Action™ Gel Memory Foam and Serta’s Duet Coil Individually Wrapped Coil-in-Coil Support System, for a fully supported and deeper sleep. 

    Firm mattresses offer the least surface “give” and would be considered harder in feel to the other mattress surfaces. If you like a solid feel rather than soft, firm may be your choice.

    Plush mattresses offer more surface “give” and provide a softer surface comfort. This is a happy medium between firm and pillow top.

    Pillow top mattresses provide an extra padded layer at the top of the mattress, over the support system of the mattress for plush comfort. No matter the size of the bed, this softness can help provide comfort and may help promote a more restful night's sleep.


    3. Choose a size:
    With multiple mattress sizes available, how do you deteremine what size you really need? Use this quick guide to determine what fit is best.

    Standard Sizes (Width x Length)
    38" x 74.5" Twin
    38" x 79.5" Twin XL
    53" x 74.5" Full
    60" x 79.5" Queen
    76" x 79.5" King
    72" x 83.5" California King

    Mattress sizes can vary +/- 1/2"

    Twin mattresses have the maximum space width per person.
    Twin XL mattresses are 5 inches longer than a standard twin.
    Full mattresses have the least width per person.
    Queen mattresses are an intermediate size sufficient for most couples.
    King mattresses are the widest mattress available.
    California King mattresses are the longest mattress available.

  • Is Your EGG Frozen Shut?

    Posted on March 3, 2015

    Hey EggHeads!

    Is your Big Green Egg frozen shut from this frigid winter weather? Follow these tips from the pros:

    Crumple up some newspaper, put it through the bottom draft vent, and light it. This should ignite the charcoal, heat the EGG, and free the seal (usually takes about 20-30 min). If for some reason this is not an option, the EGG can be brought into a warmer indoor area (like a garage) and let sit (about 24 hrs).

    To prevent freezing, you can run a piece of aluminum foil between the two halves, or prop the lid up slightly by placing a small object between the two halves so the lid does not fully close.

    We sell EGGS of all sizes and plenty of Eggsessories!

  • Sleep in America™ Poll Finds Pain a Significant Challenge When It Comes to Americans’ Sleep

    Posted on March 2, 2015

    The 2015 Sleep in America™ Poll finds that pain is a key factor in the amount of sleep Americans say they need and what they're actually getting. Those with chronic pain are averaging a 42 minute sleep debt while those suffering from acute pain are averaging a 14 minute sleep debt. In contrast, there's no overall sleep debt for those without pain, but that does not mean people in this group are not suffering from sleep problems. 

    “Taking control of your sleep by being motivated, setting a routine bedtime and creating a supportive sleep environment are relevant even for those with pain,” said David Cloud, CEO of the National Sleep Foundation. “Sleep is a key marker of health, and good sleep habits are critical for improving the quality of life of those living with chronic or acute pain.”

    The national, random sample study determines the impact pain-related sleep loss has on millions of Americans. The study finds that 57% of Americans have experienced pain the past week -- 21% have experienced chronic pain and 36% have experienced acute pain.

    Lack of sleep interferes with your mood, ability to perform activities, manage relationships, and lessens your quality of life. Those with pain are more likely to have daily sleep problems -- 50% of chronic pain sufferers believe their sleep problems interfere with work. Whether you are suffering from pain or not, making sleep a priority can help in every aspect of your life.
