All the high quality, solid wood cabinet beds offered by Murphy Beds of San Diego come to you completely ready to use. That includes a mattress specially made to fold and fit into the cabinet and easy to fold away when not in use. The perfect mattress for your cabinet bed, included in the price, is a tri-fold CertiPUT-US gel-infused memory foam mattress with a bamboo cover. It is comfortable and supportive, as well as hygienic. However, over time it will wear out, just like any other mattress. When you need to replace the mattress for your cabinet bed, keep these factors in mind.

Folding Fundamentals

Our cabinet beds feature a premium memory foam and gel trifold mattress in queen size.

Unlike traditional mattresses, cabinet bed mattresses need to be flexible and foldable to fit neatly within the bed’s frame. This often translates to thinner profiles, typically ranging from 4 to 8 inches. While this might seem like a sacrifice, modern mattress technology offers supportive and comfortable options specifically designed for folding, including memory foam and gel options.

Many Materials

The premium trifold mattress in our cabinet beds features gel-infused memory foam.

There are basically four different types of mattresses available for purchase to use in a cabinet bed.

Memory foam: Known for its pressure-relieving properties and conforming comfort, memory foam is a popular choice. Look for high-density foam for better support and durability.

Latex: This material is both responsive and buoyant and may be the perfect mattress for your cabinet bed if you are seeking pressure relief. Unlike memory foam, latex is longer lasting and less prone to sagging. However, latex mattresses weigh more than memory foam or gel, a factor you may want to consider.

Gel: Combining the cooling properties of gel with the comfort of foam, gel foam mattresses offer a luxurious sleep experience, especially in warmer climates since gel has cooling qualities.

Innerspring: Constructed with a network of coils, innerspring cabinet bed mattresses also provide a thick layer of padding. Like the regular mattresses you may remember, innerspring models are bouncy and supportive, perfect for those who prefer a traditional mattress option.

Beyond the Basics

Aside from the width and material, consider these features of the perfect mattress for your cabinet bed.

Firmness: Choose a firmness level that matches your sleeping preferences and body type. Firmer options offer more support, while softer ones cradle you in plush comfort.

Cooling features: If you tend to sleep hot, opt for a mattress with gel infusion, ventilated layers, or breathable covers to promote airflow and prevent overheating.

Allergies: If allergies are a concern, look for hypoallergenic materials like dust mite-resistant covers and CertiPUR-US certified foams.

Remember, the perfect cabinet bed mattress doesn’t compromise on comfort. With the right research and these handy tips, you’ll find the perfect sleep solution that tucks away neatly when not in use, transforming your space and providing a comfortable place for overnight visitors to sleep.
