Questions About Mattresses

Why 2-sided?

We sell only 2-sided mattresses because it’s what’s best for the consumer. Two-sided mattresses you can flip and rotate last up to 3 times as long as ‘can’t flip’ mattresses. We realize this is quite a departure from the mainstream mattress industry, as most consumer mattresses these days are one-sided (because it’s what best for manufacturers). But once we share our knowledge with customers about how mattresses are made (and why), they’re ready to embrace 2-sided and not look back.

How long should a mattress last?

A 2-sided mattress you can flip and rotate should stay comfortable and fairly even on both sides for 7-20 years when cared for properly. A ‘can’t flip’ mattress, which is what you’ll commonly find in the marketplace these days, will stay comfortable for 2-5 years when cared for properly. Bedrooms & More does not sell ‘can’t flip,’ one-sided mattresses.

What do you carry besides mattresses?

In addition to over 50 mattresses on display in our showroom, Bedrooms & More offers an extensive variety of natural and organic bedding, bedroom furniture, living and dining room furniture, accents, and many seating solutions from recliners, sectional sofas and sofa sleepers.

Do you carry the major mattress brands -- Sealy, Simmons, Serta, Tempurpedic, Sleep Number?

No, we don’t. We consciously chose to break away from the mainstream mattress industry and carrying the ‘big S brands’ around the year 2000, in response to new manufacturing practices that don’t benefit consumers.

At one time we carried some of these brands, but since they no longer sell 2-sided mattresses to consumers (only to the hotel industry), we’ve moved on and so has our business.

Do you manufacture your own mattresses?

Yes, we do. We have several longstanding relationships with regional mattress manufacturers who build mattresses to our specifications. In addition to mattresses we design for the 45th Street Bedding brand, we also carry models from respected manufacturers who use good quality materials and durable construction.

Why don’t you carry memory foam or gel foam?

Although these chemical-based materials are popular these days, they do not actually support a good night’s sleep. Memory foam sleeps hot and takes body impressions quickly and deeply, so that your bed becomes a sinkhole. Same thing with gel foam. Gel foam, which is marketed as having ‘cooling properties,’ actually heats up worse than regular chemical foams once the cooling effect subsides for the night. Both memory foam and gel foam off-gas, which can be unpleasant for people with chemical sensitivities.

Questions About the Bedrooms & More Store

Do you offer free parking?

Yes, we have a free parking garage directly behind our store, accessible from Latona Avenue. We offer free electric car charging inside it. In the event the garage is full, there’s free street parking throughout our walkable neighborhood of Wallingford. And in the event street parking is hard to find, we have several Bedrooms & More-designated parking spaces in the free lot behind Wine World, one block east of our store, accessible from 4th Avenue NE.

Is your store kid-friendly?

It sure is! On any given day, you’re likely to see a couple of the owners’ grandsons playing throughout the store. We have a small children’s area under the staircase on the main floor, complete with books and toys.

Is your Store ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Compliant?

Yes, our new east showroom is ADA compliant allowing all of our customers to be able to shop comfortably and freely throughout our store.

While our west building is not ADA compliant (due to the era in which it was built), we do everything we can to make sure our differently-abled customers are comfortable shopping in both stores. We offer access to our 2nd floor through an entry behind the store that’s wheelchair accessible.

We will happily accommodate all our customers and even carry mattresses downstairs for people to test. Please give us a call at (206) 633-4494 before your visit and we’ll gladly do everything we can to help you shop comfortably!

How long have you been in business?

Our store opened in 1972, which means we’ve been in business 49 years and counting.

Who owns the store? Is it a franchise?

Jeff and Wanda Garfield are the founders and owners, along with their three adult sons. The store is independently owned by the Garfield family, and is not a franchise.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept all four major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover), personal and business checks, Bedrooms & More gift cards, and cash. We also offer financing through Synchrony Financial.
