Hey bastards.   I hope all is well.   

Glad to see this place is still active.   Been a busy year up the the Arctic.  Global warming still hurts my ice cubes. 

Been busy with work.   Our house is still treating us well.  Our Daughter will be four years old in March.   I canít belive I said that.   4.   Where has the time gone.

I hope you are all doing well.

I bought a tempurpedic about 5 years ago and I'm OK with it.  Memory gel/foam does sleep a little hot, so consider that if you haven't had one before.  I think I'd probably get a regular spring one next time because of that, I have to keep the AC cooler during the summer so I don't  sweat.  There are so many cheaper alternatives to tempurpedic right now, don't get that.

I do highly recommend one of those adjustable frames with head and foot risers.  I have one and it is the absolute shit.  Makes reading, watching TV much better.  I sleep with the head slightly raised and it really helps snoring. I got the massage features and that is an absolute waste of money. Get one, you can find a decent one for under a grand.

heh u said wang, wood and up n' down..Im leaning towards the Tuft & Needle or Lucid 12" memory foam w/gel

I would get something cheaper, because I replace my mattress every few years. The thought of people using a mattress 10-20 yrs with all the dust mites is unfathomable & would keep me up at gnites

I have a vera wang mattress, i love it wear it around town on my back and knee caps.

Anywho everyone wants a vertical upholstered head board in a solid color now.     Or wood.   Fucking everything has wood on it.   In 10 years poeple will hate horizontal wood patterns.   It's like the 70s, only now the wood runs horizontal instead of up and down.

The $4000 price tag is walk-up pricing.  I think I paid $1300 for mine at a liquidation sale. Mattresses have an enormous margin, there's a lot of room to bargain, and you can always find someone selling cheaper.

The beautyrest black looks intriguing but why $4000+ price tag? I replace mattresses every 5 years or so. so i dont see it as long term investment.

I like the plywood idea, that would also provide better support and noise cancellation.

This is the platform beds that in style now..I would not like being that low to the floor

I have a Beautyrest Black, which is a hybrid memory-foam over coil mattress, so best of both worlds. Cal-king so my feet don't dangle off the end.


Platform beds aren't all short. I have one that's as high as a typical bed frame with a box spring, but I modified it so that instead of slats it has a solid 3/4" plywood base with some 4x4 center supports for more support. I could probably park a car on it.


I have a queen in the guest room that I left the slats on, the smaller size makes it not sag like the king did. I have a firm Perfect Sleeper that's about 20 years old on that, but it's still like new. I topped that with a 4" memory foam pad, and it's super comfortable.

What kinda beds do u fools sleep on? I have decided I no longer want a canopy bed, with vines draped around it, and am remodeling a bedroom to modern/sleek

any u punks have a favorite style bed? platform seems to low for me, why the fuck do people sleep on beds 16" from the floor?

Whats a good mattress? Ive heard Leesa, Purple, and Bear are the best..all these innovative sleep technolgies seem like a sham to me.

I do always wake up with neck pain because i sleep on my stomach which is the worst way to sleep..im guessing sleeping posture prob more important than the mattress?

any bed experts (besides MUFDVR's mom?)
