This post is sponsored by LulaaBED and Sam's Club : all opinions are my own. I did receive a 8" Emerald LulaaBED mattress and LulaaBED LB200 Base, as well as white glove delivery. I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe would be a good fit for my readers. This comes at no added cost to you! A LulaaBED mattress has totally changed the quality of my sleep and I would love to share my review with you. See how this mattress and adjustable base has revolutionized the way I sleep at night. White Glove Delivery made it easy from the start.
LulaaBED Mattress & Adjustable LB200 Base
If you told me 6 months ago that a simple mattress would flip my world upside down, I probably would have shrugged you off. But my friends, the LulaaBED mattress did just that. The luxury memory foam with open-celled breathability conforms perfectly to cradle my body, relieving pressure points. Nights that were spent tossing and turning trying to get comfortable are a thing of the past for me. Living with chronic pain just flat out sucks. I feel like I've made modifications in all aspects of my life, so I'm not sure why it never dawned on me to rethink my sleeping situation.
Over the last few years, in order to minimize pain, I've learned to stop stressing myself out and to take things slowly. Which is why I don't post a certain amount of posts a day, or keep anything mandatory. I minimize stress since I never know how I will feel day to day. Another thing I do is to make sure I do not deprive myself of good quality sleep. It's essential to get a full nights sleep, and to make it the best it can be. I just never realized how much time I spent flipping back and forth to find a comfortable spot.
Let's start with my sleeping habits before the new mattress. Since I suffer from positional headaches, how my bed was set up varied from day to day. I had 9 different pillows, to alter how I laid each and every night. Some nights they would be arranged all on the bed, and some nights, I'd only use 2-3. Foam pillows, down pillows, miracle pillows, wedge pillows - you name it, I had it. And then the LulaaBED base changed everything. It's totally adjustable my friends.
I can adjust my feet, I can adjust my head, and it even has built in massagers! There are days that I know spend in bed on my laptop because I can totally adjust it to put my body in neutral spine positioning. On days that I'm hurting, I can simply adjust the bed by a few buttons on the remote control. I had no idea that this technology existed. I spent half of 2016 on the couch. If I had known about this then, I would have bought one in a heart beat.
The set up was easy peasy. I actually had White Glove Delivery which means that they did it all from start to finish. But rest assured, anyone can do it with the 1-2-3 Easy Set-up. You simply open the box, cut the protective bag covering the mattress and place it on a solid surface.
WHITE GLOVE DELIVERY:
After the order for my bed was placed, I received a phone call to let me know it was on a shipping truck and was headed to Texas from California. It was expected to take a few days, and I was told I would receive a phone call at the start of the next week to set up my delivery day and time. Right on cue, Monday morning I got the phone call telling me the bed would be delivered between 12-4pm on Wednesday. Be sure to check the Sam's Club website to see what the stipulations are (they involve things like multiple flights of stairs, etc).
The only thing I had to do was to prepare my space for the new bed. That meant moving our old mattress to another room of the house. I let my guys do that for me.
I left the headboard in the room, simply because I haven't decided on if I want to replace it or not.
I received a phone call to let me know the guys were headed my way, and then there they were right in front of my house!
The two delivery men were awesome! They were very kind and made sure they checked exactly where I wanted it. It took 20 minutes total - from start to finish!
They started with the adjustable base. It was fully assembled, but is heavy, so I was glad to have these 2 men around to lift it. You can see that the components for the massage function as well as the levers to adjust are all under the frame.
We set the bed up on it's highest setting (cause I have lots of stuff to store underneath! The mattress is in that bed right there!
You simply cut the plastic covering and roll the mattress out onto the flat surface, or the adjustable base, as in my case.
The trick with foam mattresses is to allow 48-72 hours for the mattress to fully recover from the compression and rolling. You also might notice a "new foam" smell for the first day or 2. It's harmless, but you should ventilate your room. Ours dissipated quickly. It was fun to check on the mattress every few hours to watch it "puff" up.
One of the first inspectors of the new bed was our Boston Terrier Skipper. He wanted to see what all the fuss was about.
It earned his puppy paw of approval.
I couldn't wait to get the room set up and decorated. One of my other favorite features is the amount of under bed storage. I was afraid that the mechanics of the base would take that space, but they do not!
You can spy some of the storage space in this picture. This is one of the positions that my body really likes.
The Major is enjoying it as much as I am. We've both had some nasty viruses this winter season, and have spent some daylight hours in the bed. This is him working at home one day while he was sick.
Our kiddos beg to lay in it after school when they are reading their books.
Since we have kids and pets, and I'm clumsy. I was happy to know that the LulaaBED mattress features a removable cover.
The adjustable frame features side rails. This keeps the mattress from sliding all over the place when it's in different places. This is the only downfall I've seen. They work exactly how they are suppose to. I just sometimes forget they are there and will sit on the edge of the bed to put my socks and shows on and the metal is a bit uncomfortable. I just now sit in the middle where there are none.
The designers behind LulaaBED have been doing this for over 20 years and they are passionate about their products. As a customer, I really appreciate their product, and am happy to spread the word about this family owned company. They feature a 20 year limited warranty as well as a No-Risk Guarantee* (See website for specific details). The mattress is also CertiPur Certified which means the foam is free of flame retardants, formaldehyde, phthalates and heavy metals.
With white glove delivery, I was able to step back and let the professionals do all the heavy lifting. Set up for me was an absolute breeze. I absolutely am in love with it, and look forward to spending more time in this sanctuary of mine. So my next project will be painting my bedroom furniture - so what should I go with? A lovely gray or a classic white? Leave a comment below and let me know!
