While traditionally there’s a lot to consider before taking the leap and investing in a new mattress, including the make, firmness, and delivery, the mattress in a box offers a fuss-free alternative that doesn’t require endless trips to furniture stores.
Instead, they provide easy set-up and a price tag you won't lose sleep over; it’s almost too good to be true. They’ve even become so popular, Kmart got on board and released its own version.
Despite the box-sized delivery, the mattresses come in varying sizes and are typically made of memory foam or latex. They’re vacuum sealed to fit inside and will go from box to bed by expanding in only a matter of minutes.
