What is a Nolah Mattress, and how do you use it? Unpacking Nolah Mattress
Nolah, a mattress company, specializes in the use of its AirFoam technology. Nolah AirFoam promises to be 100% natural, can provide nearly four times as much pressure relief as memory foam, and is three times more durable than traditional memory foam. Nolah attributes this to testing hundreds of different possible foam compositions to avoid using viscoelastic chemicals and outdated materials like latex.
Despite using newer technology, Nolah Mattresses still aims to be affordable for the average consumer and comes in at roughly 1/3 the luxury mattress price. You don’t have to spend $2,000 on a luxury mattress. Instead, you can get a well-built, thoughtfully designed one for as low as $1,000.
Sleep Design & Benefits
There are many things you can do to improve your sleeping habits. You can start by exercising regularly to produce better the kind of hormones that your body uses to signal the need for rest. You can eat healthier to condition your body better to process all the nutrients that sleep usually requires. You can even opt to start taking increased dosages of natural compounds like melatonin or valerian root to assist you in falling asleep.
Based on the mattress design, a Nolah Mattress can perform similar functions for your sleep. Nolah mattresses are usually made with a 3-layer design that is as comfortable for average sleepers as possible. As mentioned above, the key material used in a Nolah Mattress is the temperature-neutral Nolah AirFoam that keeps your slumber cooler than most memory foam mattresses without sacrificing durability.
For Nolah’s original 10″ mattress, you then have about 1-inch of high-resilience supportive foam that was formulated to be more durable than latex while giving you a responsive bounce for better sleep without feeling like you are moving through water.
Nolah’s high density base foam is the foundation layer of the mattress. This helps to reinforce the whole bed and allows the top layers of the mattress to contour around your body. It is essential for any mattress to be long-lasting. Nolah ensures this through some of the best designs and manufacturing found in the U.S.
The mattress is then covered with a durable cover called “Origin Tencel”, which gives it a smooth finish and doesn’t require any disruption in manufacturing.
What Kind of Mattresses Does Nolah Have?
Nolah mattresses can be divided into three heights depending on the mattress thickness preference. Each bed comes in 6 standardized sizes, expressed in width times length proportions in inches:
Queen – 60″x80″
Twin – 38″x75″
Twin XL – 38″x80″
Total – 54″x75.”
King – 76″x80″.
Cal King – 72″x84″
As we have already mentioned, the original Nolah 10″ mattress contains three layers of foam: the Nolah AirFoam middle layer, which is supportive and high-resistance, and the foundational, high-density base foam.
The Nolah Signature mattress is next on the Nolah catalogue. It measures 12-inches high due to its ability “flipped” from a soft to a firm foam side. The 12-inch signature mattress contains four separate layers of mattress foam compared to the Nolah 10-inch original.
The topmost layer and the bottom layer are basically inverses of one another. The soft Nolah AirFoam is the top layer, which is a 2.5-inch thick contouring foam that doesn’t drown you like memory foam. The bottommost layer is made up of an inch of Nolah AirFoam. This provides more pressure relief for stomach-type and other sleepers who prefer firmer mattresses. Use the side of the bed that you want for the night and give it a good flip.
Between these two AirFoam layers is the standard supportive high-resilience foam and high-density foundational foam, coming at 1.5 and 7-inches, respectively.
The Evolution series, which has a thickness of 15.8 inches, is last on the Nolah sheet. Nolah has spent years developing this higher-end mattress with all of the latest features. The Evolution series mattress is for the most demanding sleepers.
Nolah’s Evolution mattress has the most unique construction of all three. The Nolah Evolution has essentially five separate layers of mattress material, all designed to give you the most stable and supported sleep it can.
The Nolah Evolution starts with 2-inches of high-performance ArcticTex quilted euro top designed to draw excess heat from the body without the need for any harsh chemical additives. You then have the Nolah AirFoamICE, 2-inches of graphite-infused AirFoam developed by Nolah to draw excess body heat further while you sleep. The standard Nolah high resilience foam is followed by the HDMax Support Coil system. This coil system, which measures 8 inches in length, is intended to provide more support than traditional spring systems for mattresses and allow the AirFoam layer of AirFoam to maintain its pressure relief capabilities while maintaining its support. All this is laid on top of a high-density orthopedic support foam that is meant to stabilize all these layers for years to come.
What is the Average Price for a Nolah Mattress?
We always have to talk about the cost of any new product we are interested in. Now Nolah does try to keep things relatively affordable in terms of prices for higher-end mattresses with better technologies. Their price point starts at $899 for the Original 10-inch bed, then jumps to $1299 for their next Signature 12-inch mattress, then finally $1599 for their most expensive
Nolah Evolution 15-inch mattress.
Nolah had advertised that they aim to provide quality mattresses at less than $2,000 in cost, but they may need to start revising the price points they want to be at, considering they aren’t the only ones in the market now. To reduce costs and streamline their mattresses, many mattress companies have taken advantage better logistics, direct to consumer marketing, and more efficient manufacturing. This means that the benchmark of $2,000 that Nolah has set for the “average luxury mattress” may not hold so true in the modern era. It is easy to search for mattress sellers or direct sellers, and find similar mattresses at the same price or lower.
That’s not to say Nolah isn’t trying to make quality mattresses accessible to people. Affirm is an online payment provider that spreads single payments over several months. This helps users to manage large costs. You’ll need to complete a simple credit check, though, and its service is limited to users in the United States. You can remove the trial period guarantee if you are confident about your purchase and save $90.
How Does it Compare to Other Brands?
We’ve mentioned that Nolah is hardly the only mattress brand that appears in the market. It is now easier for companies and individuals to market directly to consumers with the availability of e-commerce. This eliminates the need for middle retailers and allows companies to save money on marketing. They can lower their prices, offer better service, or improve their product line.
How does Nolah stack against some of the other popular brands in the market now? Let’s take a look below.
Nectar is close to comparable in mattress prices and features. But Nectar does include approximately $399 worth of components in purchasing their standard Queen-size mattress, priced at $899 (just like the Nolah 10-inch Original Mattress). With the purchase of their mattress, you get a cooling pillow, a sheet set, and even a mattress protector. They even have the Affirm feature so that you can space out this more significant purchase across several months.
Mattress-wise, you can expect Nectar to use a traditional multi-layer set up with gel memory foam as the central cushion for your body. Nectar will use memory foam in place of Nolah’s AirFoam technology. It will also have standard support foam and density foam layers for its foundations. Nectar has a quilted cover to keep your bed in its place.
Despite the similar designs, shoppers who aren’t so picky between memory foam and Nolah’s AirFoam may want to give Nectar a look, especially since you get a complete mattress set-up with sheets and a protector for the same price. Nectar uses the same memory foam as other brands, so if you’ve had issues with it, don’t hesitate to give Nectar a try.
Layla Mattresses dives deep into two types of mattresses: the full Memory Foam and Hybrid. The whole memory foam mattress is a bit pricey at $949. However, they attribute that to using more technologically advanced materials such as their dual-sided cooling copper-infused gel memory foam. Layla Memory Foam mattresses can be flipped, just like the Nolah Signature series. It has a soft, plush feel and a supportive foam. Unpacking Nolah Mattress
Layla is a specialist in hybrid mattresses. This combines two popular mattress technologies: memory foam and the coil or spring foundations. Coil mattresses are a bit older in design technology but are a stable foundation for users who want a bit more support for their backs. Layla’s individually wrapped coil system is a modern coil mattress design and is sandwiched between two support foams to guarantee comfort without sacrificing structure.
If you’re interested in trying out a coiled hybrid mattress and want to save an easy $100 (Nolah’s Executive mattress is slightly more expensive at $1599), you might want to give Layla Hybrid a visit.
Emma is another popular name in direct-to-consumer mattress manufacturing. Their German-designed, advanced foam acts as the first layer in their beds. This advanced foam, called “Airgocell Foam,” is meant to help respond to pressure and movement for ideal movement and motion isolation.
Their pressure relief memory foam, which is underneath their Airgocell foam, helps the top layer distribute pressure evenly and contour to your body. The last level of foam is their specifically-designed spinal alignment foundational foam, manufactured with deep ridges for counter-pressure and lower-back/shoulder support. Unpacking Nolah Mattress
Emma is a tried and tested mattress, though you will need to fork out some more dollars, as Emma’s starting Queen size mattresses come at $1299. If you aren’t on a budget, you can try seeing what Emma mattresses have to offer.
DreamCloud, a new mattress store that specializes in hybrid mattresses is now open. It offers a mix of supportive innerspring coils and plush memory foam to provide you with the best possible sleep.
Their standard queen DreamCloud mattress comes in at $999, a little more expensive than Nolah’s introductory Queen size price but comes with $399 worth of bed accessories. For DreamCloud’s initial price, you can go home with a mattress protector, a sheet set, and two cooling pillows at no extra cost.
Six different materials are available in each of the six mattresses. The first layer is made of luxurious cashmere, and then the memory foam and support foam layers. These layers help to surround you with the soft mattress as you sleep. All this is on top of the structured support layers of foam and coil to reduce motion transfer when you sleep. Unpacking Nolah Mattress
They even include a lifetime warranty and a full year’s worth of nights to see if you enjoy the mattress. You can return the mattress quickly through their free shipping service. DreamCloud also comes with several financing options that help alleviate the heaviness of the transaction over several months. Overall, DreamCloud seems to be the strongest contender for a good mattress alternative to the usually overpriced luxury brands.
A good night’s sleep is more important than most people realize. A good night of sleep can help you heal and repair your body, as well as maintain a stable mind. Doctors will often recommend it as a first step to better health.
Nolah is an excellent choice for those with a moderate budget who want to upgrade to a better mattress. There are many sizes and payment options available for each series. You can opt for their full foam mattresses or their Executive series, which includes supportive coil layers. Unpacking Nolah Mattress
