Benefits of a rock and roll bed mattress topperCraig Ellyard
You don’t need a mattress topper for your rock and roll bed but using one will add cushioning, increase comfort, and could lead to a better night’s sleep. Some users will also find a mattress topper will not only improve the quality of sleep but can also banish any aches and strains from spending the night on a rock and roll bed.
At Alpha Seating we make bespoke mattress toppers in our own factory. Our experienced and skilled upholsterers can make your mattress topper in any material you wish and to whichever colour scheme you require. We can of course make the design of your mattress topper identical to the finish of your van and your rock and roll bed.
Our rock and roll beds are already comfortable. But everyone is different which is why if you stay in a hotel while you may think the bed is great, the next guest may have the worst night’s sleep of their lives. So, a mattress topper can be good idea.
Let’s look at why some customers choose to have a mattress topper and what the benefits and downsides to having one in your van.
Let’s start with the positives.
Add cushioning and comfort
As we all know from our home life when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, a comfortable mattress is key. Obviously, your rock and roll bed isn’t going to quite achieve the level of comfort you’re used to at home. But if you think a rock and roll bed may be a little firm for you a mattress topper can be the perfect solution to adding another layer of cushioning and comfort.
A mattress topper laid on top of the rock and roll bed can add extra comfort and support. At can also help distribute your body weight more evenly. For some customers this will make sleeping on a rock and roll bed much more comfortable and may help you get a better night’s sleep.
Our rock and roll beds are made from high density foam with a cushion base of 75mm. Popping a mattress topper onto the bed at night will add more depth to the cushioning.
You can of course buy mattress toppers from many different places. All homeware shops and bedding stores will sell them.
There are many different types available including thick toppers made from memory foam or latex. For extra support some toppers are made with built-in springs or coils. However, mattress toppers are only available in fixed sizes so if you do purchase one from a third party do make sure the topper will fit you rock and roll bed.
The mattress toppers available from Alpha Seating are of course made specifically to fit our rock and roll beds so please speak to use first before you make a purchase. You can call us on 01455 856 816.
Get a better night’s sleep with a mattress topper
If you only sleep on your rock and roll bed occasionally, adding a mattress topper may help you get a better night’s rest. And anything which does that is worth considering.
Something else a mattress topper can do is improve your sleeping position. The average person’s weight is often distributed unevenly while they sleep. This can cause discomfort and lead to a poor night’s sleep. A mattress topper can help distribute your body weight more evenly, making sleeping on a rock and roll bed much more comfortable. This can help you get the most out of your sleep, and may even improve your overall health.
A touch more hygienic
Mattress toppers are a great way of keeping your rock and roll bed upholstery clean and free from sweat, dust mites, or other allergens. The topper will absorb perspiration so you don’t have the worry that it’ll go through into your upholstery.
A mattress topper may improve your overall health
Not only can a mattress topper help you get a better night’s sleep, it can also have a positive effect on your overall health. The cushioning provided by the topper can reduce pressure points and improve circulation. This can result in fewer aches and pains throughout the day. A mattress topper may also help improve your posture, which can lead to better overall physical health.
Affordable and easy to install
Mattress toppers can be a great way to improve the comfort of your rock and roll bed. They are easy to use. You simply lay the topper on rock and roll bed – so no time spent getting set up.
And, in the grand scheme of things, toppers won’t add much to your budget when you’re thinking of buying a rock and roll bed. This makes them a great option for those who are looking for a way to improve their sleep quality on road trips without spending a lot of money.
Ok, so plenty of potential positives, but what are the downsides to mattress toppers?
Well, there are only a couple of negatives. Firstly, although affordable, a topper is still an extra cost. But secondly, and the biggest neg, is that mattress toppers need to be stored when the rock and roll bed is being used as seating.
Of course, the biggest concern of any campervan enthusiast is making the most of space and not taking any item which takes up too much room. Do consider storage when you’re thinking about a mattress topper. Don’t buy it and then scratch your head wondering where you’re going to put it.
