Happy Memorial Day!

Memorial-Day

Did you know that the name “Memorial Day” wasn’t used till 1882? Originally Memorial Day was known as “Decoration Day” (something some people in the South still have, completely separate from Memorial Day). “Memorial Day” also wasn’t the official name of the holiday (by federal law) until 1967. Plus Memorial Day was originally on May 30th – until 1968, that is, when Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act which moved Memorial Day (and a few other holidays) from their regular dates to certain Mondays, so as to create convenient 3-day weekends (thanks, guys!). Even this didn’t take place on a federal level till 1971 though, and even then, it took a few more years to implement across all 50 states because some states just weren’t having any of it. So, while Memorial Day is technically an old holiday, several aspects are much newer.

Memorial Day is also a great time to add some NEW into your life, seeing as how it’s the “official” start of summer. New season, new goals, new changes.

And finally, as to the actual reason for the Memorial Day holiday, we at Suburban Furniture praise the men and women who sacrificed their lives in the name of our country. Their selfless devotion, outstanding courage, and honor inspire us to make their sacrifice meaningful. Thank you, one and all.

Mattress Love

We’ve been talking about the importance of healthy sleep lately (are you better rested yet?). Now that you know the basics of good sleep, what’s the next step? Finding the perfect mattress, of course! You spend a lot of time in bed, so it is important to choose a mattress that will help you get the best night’s sleep possible. Mattress size will be a major factor in your decision, but there are several other things to consider while you browse for the ideal mattress for your bedroom—room size, the amount of sleeping space you require, and a person’s height to name a few. Let’s take a look at some mattress info!

TWIN:

  • Also known as a “single” mattress. Great in children’s rooms and smaller bedrooms. A narrow bed that is easy to move and fits almost anywhere.
    Approx. width per person: 39″

  • Pros: Fits in smaller bedrooms. Sheets are less expensive than for other sized beds.
  • Cons: Too short for many adults.

TWIN XL:

  • Five inches longer than the standard twin and typically used in college dorms. Easy to move from room to room and great for taller teens.
    Approx. width per person: 39″

  • Pros: Longer length is great for taller teens and adults.
  • Cons: Bedding can be harder to find and available patterns may be limited.

FULL:

  • Sometimes called a “Double” mattress. Wider than a twin, but still limits sleeping space for two adults.
    Approx. width per person: 27″

  • Pros: Fits into smaller rooms. Sheets are less expensive than queen or king size.
  • Cons: Considered by many to be too narrow for two adults. At 75″ in length, may be too short for some.

QUEEN:

  • Longer and wider than a full, a queen is more accommodating for two adults. A good choice for smaller master bedrooms.
    Approx. width per person: 30″

  • Pros: Better fit for two adults. Plenty of length for most adults. Bedding is easy to find.
  • Cons: Only slightly more sleeping width per person than a full. Some bedding is sold as “Full/Queen” and may not perfectly fit either size.

KING:

  • Sometimes referred to as an “Eastern King” and offers the same width per person as a twin. A king mattress uses two twin extra long sized box springs.
    Approx. width per person: 39″

  • Pros: Widest standard bed available. Comfortably sleeps 2 adults. Sheets are easy to find.
  • Cons: Large size makes it difficult to fit up stairs and into smaller rooms. Bedding is more expensive than other standard sizes.

CALIFORNIA KING:

  • Also known as a “Western King” mattress. This may be the preferred choice of taller adults and adds a foot in width and four inches in length to the standard queen.
    Approx. width per person: 36″

  • Pros: More length to accommodate a taller person. Ample width for two adults.
  • Cons: Challenging to move up and down stairs and from room to room. Bedding is expensive in king sizes. Sheets are more available on the West Coast and may be difficult to find in other parts of the country.
