If you are shopping for a bed, you may already know that a new type of product is on the market: the bed-in-a-box. Available through major mattress companies like Diamond Mattress, these beds are compressed and rolled up to fit in a large-sized cardboard box for easy shipping. Do many customer reviews highlight how comfortable these beds are and how affordable they are, but are they a better choice than a traditional mattress? Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of a bed-in-a-box. 


These days people are doing a lot more online shopping and getting their goods delivered home. The mattress-in-a-box is a convenient product that allows customers to buy exactly what they want and have it delivered via the mail. Of course, there are many other benefits to getting a mattress-in-a-box, no matter the brand you prefer.



With a bed-in-a-box, the shipping company will leave your box at the front door. No need to have movers bring a bulky bed into the home. You don’t have to worry about the potential for COVID infection or keeping social distancing in mind. Plus, if you are worried about virus transmission from the box, you can wait a few days before opening it. Research has found that COVID-19 only survives on cardboard and paper for about 24 hours.



If you do have to leave the house regularly for work, it cannot be easy to set up a convenient appointment to deliver a traditional bed. But beds in a box come through the mail. Your shipment will be waiting at the front door when you get home. 



Shopping from home is more comfortable whether you are worried about COVID infection or not. You can look up all the stats online and compare prices. Do all the research you want until you find the perfect mattress for your needs. 



A bed-in-a-box comes to your home straight from the factory, so you know that no one else has touched or tested it. Plus, it’s fun to roll out the flat-as-a-pancake mattress and watch it inflate after you cut the plastic.



Manufacturers can get all kinds of mattresses into boxes using compression and vacuum sealing of the plastic packaging. Some of the more common types you’ll see include:

  • Hybrid Beds: These mattresses combine coils with a top layer of memory foam or gel foam.
  • All Foam Beds: Made with polyurethane foam, these dense beds provide plenty of cushions. 
  • Memory Foam: Another kind of polyurethane foam bedding, memory foam has additional ingredients that make it denser and more elastic. Memory foam beds are designed to envelop and cushion.
  • Gel Foam: Designed to keep sleepers cool, gel foam comes in varying densities. Some brands may also have a top layer of memory foam for extra support, like the Align Gel Memory Foam.
