Our 5 Favorite Mattresses for Side Sleepers

by Jane K on October 16, 2018

Sleeping on your side can greatly increase the potential for back pain, hip pain, and shoulder pain. But just because you’re a side sleeper doesn’t mean you’re destined for pain. By choosing the right mattress, you can prevent pressure points that lead to pain and injury. Here are five of our favorite mattresses for side sleepers.

Tempur-Cloud Luxe Breeze Mattress

Tempur-Pedic Mattress Luxe Breeze

In general, memory foam mattresses tend to be the best mattresses for side sleepers because the material adapts to your shape for support and alignment. Side sleepers also do best on plush mattresses. Tempur-Cloud mattresses combine the plush softness with the give and support of the memory foam material, making it the perfect mattress for side sleepers.

Tempur-ProAdapt Soft Mattress

Tempur-Pedic ProAdapt Mattress

Like the Tempur-Cloud mattress collection, Tempur-ProAdapt plush mattresses also combine soft support with the many perks of the memory foam material. The Tempur-ProAdapt also includes their most advanced pressure-relieving material, so that side sleepers can get the rejuvenating sleep they deserve.

Sealy Hybrid Copper II Plush Mattress

Sealy Hybrid Plush Mattress

This hybrid mattress from Sealy combines the perks of both innerspring and memory foam mattresses. In addition to the exclusive Posturepedic Technology, this plush mattress also supports the heaviest part of your body with twenty-percent more coils.

Beautyrest Silver Hybrid Vivid Shores Plush Mattress

Beautyrest Silver Hybrid Plush Mattress

With this soft hybrid mattress, Beautyrest has developed an advanced sleep system. The pocketed coil technology provides better support than most innerspring mattresses, and the gel memory foam keeps you cool and supported all night long. Plus, it comes with a 10-year limited mattress warranty.

Yellow Rose Radiant Plus Euro Top Mattress

Yellow Rose mattresses are designed exclusively for Star Furniture, and this plush innerspring mattress is as affordable as it is comfortable. With over 1,000 reactive coils and the resilient foam pillowtop, side sleepers will have the softness and support they need for a good night’s rest.

pet proof furniture

Looking for pet-friendly couches and furniture? If you’re a dog or cat owner, you probably already know that no furniture is truly “pet-proof,” but that doesn’t mean there aren’t options for people who want to avoid pet damage. Here are some of our favorite pet-friendly interior design ideas.

Choose the Right Fabric

Different fabrics have different durability, and if you’re looking for the best couch for pets, the most important thing to consider is the type of fabric that covers the couch. Leather furniture, for example, tends to repel pet hair; however, it does scratch. That said, a little wear on a leather sofa can still look great.

Synthetic microfiber couches tend to be an especially viable option for pets because of the material’s durability. Microfiber sofas don’t rip or scratch easily, and pet hair is quickly removed with a lint roller.

In general, pet-friendly fabrics tend to have a tight weave. We’ve also found that patterns, textures, and darker colors can help hide some of the pet hair and dirt that can accumulate when your furry friend camps out on the couch. Avoid materials like tweed, chenille, silk, and velvet, which aren’t durable enough to withstand animal claws.

Embrace Pet Proof Furniture Covers

While some people don’t like the extra hassle, purchasing a canvas furniture cover for your couches, chairs, and other living room seating can be a great way to prevent furniture damage. Plus, these covers are easy to pop in the washer to clean and much more affordable than reupholstering furniture.

Practice Misdirection

Some people train their pets to keep off the furniture, which is a viable option for some people and less than practical for others. If you don’t want to forbid couch visits, you can gently encourage cats and dogs to stay off the couch by providing them nearby pet beds. For cats, try to have a scratching post available so they don’t turn the couch into their own personal nail trimmer. Covering the couch cushions with a blanket can also be effective for preventing some wear and tear when you aren’t home to supervise.

Visit one of the eleven Star Furniture locations in Houston, Austin, San Antonio, or Bryan, Texas to find pet-friendly furniture options. In the meantime, check out the Star Furniture Interior Design Blog for even more helpful home design tips, including everything from Feng Shui basics to mattress care. Visit today!
