Home Life has a nice and simple mattress that has really taken me by surprise. One of the big surprises has been the price, I really can’t believe they’re this affordable.
Also, the level of detail that is going into even the simplest of mattresses is really making them worth it. As you can tell I really like my mattress. I also like to write reviews, but my favorite thing is to answer some common questions people might have about them. Many people don’t really answer these questions so that’s where I come in.
I want to answer some common questions people might have about the Home Life Harmony Sleep 8 inch Pocket Spring Luxury Mattress. Hopefully, this little review on the mattress will help you when you’re looking to buy a new mattress.
Mattress are getting to a point where there is no excuse to not have a new mattress. If you’re still sleeping on a crappy old mattress and always tell yourself you can’t afford a new one then you need to look at what Home Life is doing with the Harmony Mattresses.
Common questions people might have on the Home Life Harmony Mattress…
Can you flip it?
No, not really. It’s a one-sided mattress.
How does it do for tall people?
I’m about 6 foot tall and it fits me just fine. I can be hard to find a good affordable mattress for us tall people but the Harmony Mattress does it well.
How firm is it?
I found it to be kind of in the middle. Much how you expect an innerspring mattress to feel. It’s hard for me to get used to a spring mattress after sleeping on a foam one for so long. I would give it a good 5 out of 10 as 10 being very firm.
Is it good for the kids?
I think it’s the best kids mattress around. At the price they sell it for you really can’t go wrong. I do recommend a good mattress protector like this one just in case the kids do make a mess in the bed. A good mattress protector can keep a mattress looking good for a long time if used correctly.
Can you sleep on it right away?
I read somewhere that you should allow it to sit for a day or two, but I was able to sleep on it right away. I see no problem with it, but it would be better to be safe and wait 48 hours for the mattress to spring to its correct shape.
Does it have a smell?
No smell that I can find. Its not a foam mattress or latex so it won’t really have a smell to it.
How long can you keep it in the box?
I would get the mattress out of the box within 72 hours. It’s not best to keep them in the box for too long. They compress them for shipping but they expect you to take it out of the box as soon as you get it.
Can you use a platform bed frame?
Yes, a platform bed foundation is what I use and I love it. Since its a spring mattress a good box spring might work fine for you too. They even make box spring and foundations into one unit nowadays.
