Your Guide to Buying a Mattress in a Box

What is a Mattress in a Box?

Just as the title suggests, this is a mattress that comes conveniently packed in a box. How is this possible, you may ask? A mattress in a box is most often made of foam, making it easier to roll up, compress and package than traditional innerspring or pocket coil mattresses.

Some mattresses in a box are hybrid style, which is an intuitively designed combination of foam and coils. Available in most standard bed sizes just like a traditional mattress, the mattress in a box is quickly rising in popularity.

Why Choose a Mattress in a Box?

With innovative materials such as memory foam and gel foam becoming more common, mattresses in a box continue to be a popular choice among retailers and consumers alike. People are flocking to these modern mattresses for a variety of reasons, including:

Compact Packaging

  • Due to arriving in a box, these mattresses are easy to transport in a vehicle, maneuver through doorways/elevators, store in your home or receive via delivery.

Compact Level

  • The specialty foam materials used in these mattresses make them ultra-comfortable for all types of sleepers.


  • Mattresses in a box are usually an affordable, quality option, ideal for many people in the market for a new mattress.

How to Set Up a Mattress in a Box

Because they come packaged in a box, setup is a breeze. You can quickly open the box, remove the mattress from its covering, and carefully roll it onto your bed frame or boxspring. This turns the hassle of trying to get a traditional mattress through doorways and rotating it around your room into a quick and easy process. Just bring to the desired spot and unpack.

Remember to always read the instructions that come with your specific mattress to ensure you don’t miss any tips for setting it up. Most brands require (or recommend) waiting a certain amount of time before using the mattress so it can properly expand and settle.
