We are plugging away here at our new house still working on areas a bit at at time. One of the rooms that I’ve wanted to get together was our downstairs guest room. When we moved in we only had one bed and our new master furniture hadn’t arrived yet, so we moved my old master furniture into the guest room, since that is where it is going to stay. I have a Sleep Number mattress and we knew we would move that mattress upstairs when the new bedroom furniture came, so that’s exactly what we did. I still really love that mattress and it’s very comfy 4 years later.
So, the guest room sat with furniture but no mattress and I knew we’d have to buy a mattress eventually to get that room finished. I wasn’t looking forward to that as choosing a mattress is not an easy task. You can lay down on a mattress in the store, but you have no idea how it’s going to sleep once you get it home. And everyone seems to have different expectations and wants in a bed. How soft is it? How supportive is it? Is it too hard? All of those things can play into getting a good night’s sleep….or not?! Not to mention, mattreses can be very pricey!
Am I right?
Did you know that you can order mattresses online now and have them shipped to you? This was all new to me!
So, when I got an email from this new company I had never heard of, Kaya, offering to send me a King sized mattress for the guest room, of course I said yes. Why not try a new mattress in there. We desparately needed one for that space. The box arrived from UPS before Christmas. I begged the UPS man to please get it inside as he told me it weighed 150 lbs. Wow, that’s heavy! He got it inside the front door and there it sat until Mark and I could get it unboxed and in the guest room.
We wrangled it out of the box and it was all rolled up. And heavy. Did I mention heavy? It was really crazy heavy, but we managed to drag/walk it down the hall still in the packaging. The directions said to cut the tie when it was in place, so that’s what we did. We got it on top of the box spring. I bought a box spring from a local company for $200 and had it in place already. I wish I could have gotten a picture of Mark and I unwrapping this mattress! I know it was hilarious.
We cut the tie and it sort of popped open and started getting bigger! We wrangled and pulled it and got it into place.
We pulled it from side to side until it was in the perfect position on the box spring and watched it grow like a rising loaf of bread. Quite remarkable, really! They told me that the mattress would fully expand after 2 days and it did. That plastic cover has to be cut off and then the mattress can be pulled into place.
Let me tell you a little bit about the Kaya mattress that they shared with me. They didn’t give me any parameters on what they wanted me to write, so all of this is just my experience. They only shared facts which I’m going to share with you.
You can compare the Kaya to other known brands who have these same sort of order online matresses.
A few facts about Kaya:
A premium 5 layer mattress, with a modern cover infused with ThermoGel for cooling, high density 5 lb. foam on top, and an advanced pocketed coil system. From Kaya’s website: Over a thousand pocketed coils made from top grade steel is the mattress base material. The pocketed coil base is sandwiched between two layers of stabilizing foams, bringing the best out of the coil system. This top-notch base provides incredible Edge support with almost zero motion transfer and perfect body contouring.
I can vouch it has coils and you can feel them on the bottom of the mattress. The top layer is very thick and dense. When I laid on it for the first time, I loved the sink in feeling it had. Very comfortable and plush!
Made in America, something I always like to hear.
Kaya mattresses range in price from $795 for a Twin to $1195 for a King. If you’ve shopped for mattresses you know how expensive they can be. I don’t know about you, but mattress shopping is one of the hardest things to figure out. The last time I bought a mattress (well over 10 years ago) I went for a pillow top and it was a comfy mattress, but now foam mattresses are all the rage. I wasn’t sure I’d like a foam mattress until I slept on one and now I really think they are comfy.
Everyone has so many opinions about what they like to sleep on and how they like a mattress to feel. So, I can’t say that everyone would love this Kaya mattress. It’s been slept on twice now. Mark’s daughter and family came over during the snow storm in December when they lost power overnight, so luckily we had the room set up by then. They said they thought the mattress was very comfy.
And since I’m doing this post about Kaya, it was only fitting that Mark and I should sleep on the mattress too, so we did too. It was very comfortable and I had no complaints the next morning about how it slept and neither did Mark. We both felt it was a comfy bed. The memory foam sinks in and feels really good. If you don’t like memory foam though, you may not like the feel of this bed. Kaya rates their beds with a 6 out of 10 on firmness.
Overall, the bed was very comfortable and I would recommend it if you’re looking for a decent bed for a good price.
So that’s a look at our guestroom and where we are with it now. I’ve got the bed made and new shades on the windows, which happened after these pictures. I’ve still got drapes to hang.
Mark’s grandmother’s chair (his Nanny) is in the room. It can’t be sat on (it’s a little too fragile) so this is a good place to keep it out of the way.
This room isn’t very big so the king sized bed fills it up well. I have room for the chest of drawers and 2 nightstands and it’s a cozy room for our guests. It’s nice to have a guest room, that’s for sure! You’ll notice that I’m using everything from my old bedroom and it looks good in here too. I hung one picture and will hang a few more things and add a few accessories before it’s done. I’m just glad all of this fits in here!
And it’s nice to have a new mattress in there now. I wanted to share our experience with Kaya with you and let you take a look at them if you’re in the market for a new mattress. It’s perfect in our guest room. Again, I think you have to try out a mattress and figure out if that’s the one for you. The good thing about Kaya is that they allow you to try out a mattress for 120 days and if you don’t like it here’s their return policy, which I think is really good!
We ask all our customers to try the KAYA mattress for at least 30 nights, allowing your body enough time to adjust to your new mattress. We are confident you will love your KAYA mattress. If for some reason you don’t, you will have up to 120 days to let us know. We’ll pick it up from your home and refund your purchase. No obligation, 100% money-back guarantee, no questions asked.
That’s my experience with Kaya and I wanted to pass this information on to you as well. We are thrilled to have this new mattress in our guest room and I think it will serve us well for many years…of course, it won’t get slept on all the time, but it will be there when guests arrive.
Do you love your mattress? How do you go about mattress shopping, is it as hard for everyone else as it has been for me? You just don’t know until you sleep on a mattress for awhile if you’re going to love it or not.
