Why a bed in a box falls short of quality comfort

Can a bed in a box offer the same long-lasting comfort, quality, and value as a Luxara? Our years of experience tells us no.

We believe that any mattress that can be compressed, rolled, and stuffed into a small box simply can't compare to the quality and durability of a premium mattress delivered intact

Don't believe us? Just take a look at what a bed in a box goes through in a compression machine before you've even had a chance to sleep on it.

5 things that can happen to a mattress when it's compressed & stuffed into a box

Shipping a mattress in a small box and leaving it on your doorstep is designed to benefit the mattress company's bottom line, not your long-term comfort.

Before considering a bed in a box, here are some things you should know about what compressing, folding and rolling can do to the inside of your mattress.

It can compromise health and safety

Chemical off-gassing occurs when mattresses are unboxed and release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air causing a chemical-like smell, which can lead to health risks.

It can break down the foam

Some brands use less dense foams to be able to compress their beds. Some of the foam's cells can break when compressed, reducing its overall lifespan.

It can destroy the springs

Some brands use thinner springs to be able to compress. When folded and rolled, the center row can be destroyed or compromised, reducing the mattress lifespan even more.

It can compromise back support

The center third of a mattress is where most of your body weight lies. Folding a mattress can compromise that crucial area, which can lead to aches and pains.

It can reduce the lifespan of the mattress

This can mean having to replace your mattress sooner. What starts out like a great deal can end up costing you more in the long run.

Fun fact: Luxara mattresses use thicker recycled steel springs that are so strong, they’d actually break a compression machine!

Luxara vs. bed-in-a-box

Luxara isn’t your typical internet bed-in-a-box, our premium mattresses are made with the highest standard of Australian craftsmanship without the premium markups. It’s the closest thing to a premium high-end retail mattress, without the expense or hassle of shopping in a mattress store.

Luxara vs. retail mattresses

Luxara have no retail overhead or sales commissions, so we can keep mark-up on our premium materials to a minimum and pass the savings on to you. You’ll pay a fraction of what you would in a retail store for the same high level of quality.

Luxara vs. internet mattresses

Luxara aren’t like other internet mattresses. They’re not Chinese made foam beds that can be compressed into boxes and stored for months and years. Our mattresses are manufactured to order in Australia and delivered by hand. That means they are freshly made and don’t sit in storage.
