Best Online Mattress for Your New Apartment

One of the most essential things in life is to get a good night’s sleep. Without a good night’s sleep, you are going to be grumpy and not perform as well throughout the day. Unfortunately, when you need a new mattress, it takes hours upon hours of shopping before you land on the right one. In today’s uncertain times, people do not want to venture out to go shopping for a new mattress. Therefore, I, Mark Roemer, have taken some of the hassles out of shopping for a new mattress online.

I am going to start by assuming you are in need of a new mattress because you are moving to a new apartment. The truth is most people don’t like to move their beds because they are bulky and awkward to carry. Another reality is that people hang on to their mattresses longer than they should. At best, a mattress should not be in your possession for more than ten years. The reason is that during our sleep, we slough off dead skin. That skin ends up embedded in the mattress, and that is where bed bugs come from. So, at minimum, change your mattress every ten years.

While people do have different reasons to change their mattress, the fact remains they are hard to shop for. You have to find a place that is open during the pandemic; then you have to try it out. There is no guarantee that the person that tried it before you did not have COVID, etc. Well, today, you are going to skip that stuff and go straight to ordering online. I have to admit that I was apprehensive when I first bought my mattress online, but with the ease in shipping, the reduced price, and the quality of the beds, I am now a believer.

So, join me as I share the best mattresses you can get for your new apartment. These are in no particular order and all equally as great.


In these trying times, people are left with very little money for expensive items. My choice for people in this situation is the ViscoSoft React. The React Mattress is just one of the two mattresses that are offered by ViscoSoft. They come in different sizes to meet every need. The twin mattress will set you back approximately $500, and the California King will only run you about $750. All of the React Mattresses are what are called “hybrid-style mattresses.” What that means is that they have traditional coils, but they are wrapped. Additionally, they have a foam top layer that protects you from the coils. As with most online mattresses, they offer many options for the top foam layer. ViscoSoft provides three options: contouring latex foam (aka memory foam), heat-dissipating foam, and gel-infused memory foam.

While ViscoSoft never mentions firmness, many customers report them to be medium-firm. I personally find this to be the best compromise between a mattress that is not firm enough and a mattress that is too firm.


As more and more people turn their attention to the environment, the mattress industry has begun coming out with more eco-friendly options. Until recently, bed in a box companies have missed this mark. Well, those days are safely behind us. Let me be the first to introduce you to the Avocado Green Mattress.

Just like the ViscoSoft, the Avocado Green is a hybrid spring and foam mattress. The company is quite proud of the fact that they use only certified organic materials in the making of their beds. Their motto is, “You can get a good night’s sleep knowing that you are having a minimal impact on the environment.”

All that is null and void if the mattress does not sleep well. This mattress is reported by the company and consumers to be a firm mattress. If you or someone in your family needs that extra support, then you have come to the right place. Also, if the smell of traditional mattresses puts you off, rest assured you will receive no such smell from this mattress. That smell is what is commonly referred to as “off-gassing.” Avocado Green states the reason their mattresses lack that smell is due to the fact there are no chemicals in their mattresses such as chemical flame retardants, polyurethane, or cotton pesticides. You will genuinely get a great night’s sleep in these mattresses.

Light Sleepers

We all have that one family member that can be startled away by the sound of a fly three blocks away. That is why I am presenting to you the Nectar Lush. The Nectar Lush is the first mattress I have ever owned that is all foam and no springs.

With the lack of springs, you will no longer have the sounds associated with them. Even the hybrid-foam models have a small amount of squeaking sound associated with them. Since there are no springs in the Nectar Lush, you will not have that sound. Additionally, the mattress is said to cut down on motion transfer. This means that when someone else is sleeping in the bed and moves around, you will feel it less.

If you are a side or back sleeper and a light sleeper, this is definitely the mattress for you. I would not recommend this mattress to stomach sleepers. Honestly, it is just too firm to sleep on your stomach. Either of the other two beds on this list would satisfy that need. However, this one will let you sleep from sunset to sunrise without so much as a speck of noise.


Shopping for a mattress for your new apartment doesn’t have to be complicated. I, Mark Roemer, hope that I have provided you with enough information to make an informed decision. I know these are not the only great mattresses on the market, but I feel they are your best options. I wish you all the happiness in your new apartment and the best sleep in the world thanks to these beautiful mattresses.
