Mattresses and Sleep

Should I Flip or Rotate My Memory Foam or Hybrid Mattress

Have you ever been told that you should flip and rotate your mattress? Many people think that flipping and rotating will prolongs the life of their bed. Where that used to be the case for almost all mattresses, the design of many foam and hybrid mattresses today has changed that cardinal rule. Leave the flipping to your Saturday morning pancakes with our awesome non-flip foam and hybrid mattresses.  

Should I Flip my Leesa or Sapira Mattress?

No! You don’t have to worry about flipping your Leesa mattress. Traditionally, mattress companies recommend flipping your innerspring mattress to get even wear on both sides (and both ends) of your mattress over time. Four times a year, they advise that you flip or rotate your traditional mattress. With Leesa, you don't have to stress about a mattress-flipping schedule because you don't have to flip your mattress.

Our mattresses are designed from the bottom up, with layers in a specific order, to help you get better rest. If you flipped your Leesa or Sapira mattress, its entire performance design would be upside down. Resting on your mattress this way, you wouldn't receive the benefits of the multilayer foam design, which is intended to help your body recover and charge during the night. Additionally, the two-inch top layer of our beds allows for airflow, so you get a cooler night’s rest. Flipping that layer on the bottom won't work.

Worried about the life of your mattress? Don't be. We only use the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. So, just because you don't have to flip your Leesa or Sapira mattress, doesn't mean it will have a shorter life span. Our beds are built to last and durable, so you can rest on for years to come.

Should I Rotate my Leesa or Sapira Mattress?

When it comes to rotation of your mattress, many Leesa sleepers like to periodically rotate their foam or hybrid mattress to promote even wear. This is especially important to do if you share your bed with a partner or furry friend. Rotation promotes even, natural wear of your mattress (since you're like different weights and body styles and may sleep in different positions). Rotating your mattress can extend the life of your mattress so that you can continue to get better rest.

We recommend that you rotate your Leesa or Sapira mattress 180 degrees every 3-6 months. That means stripes are at the bottom of your bed for a few months and at the top of your bed for a few months. When you rotate your mattress, it may also be a good time to do some seasonal mattress cleaning, including vacuuming your mattress, to keep it in top shape.

How to Rotate your Foam or Hybrid Mattress

If you decide to rotate your Leesa or Sapira mattress, it's pretty easy. When you're done rotating, you want the foot of the bed to be where the head is and vice versa. Our stripes make it easy to keep it straight.

Start at the bottom left corner and rotate the mattress clockwise until the bottom left corner is at the top right. If your Leesa or Sapira stripes started at the foot of your bed, they will now be at the head. Then that's it, you're ready to climb in and rest on.  

The Right Bed Base Makes a Difference

On top of rotating your Leesa or Sapira mattress a few times every year, having the right bed base can greatly extend the life of your mattress. A good bed base prevents your mattress from sagging and helps distribute the pressure of your mattress more evenly (so that it wears more evenly, too). So, what kind of bed base is best for your foam or hybrid mattress?

Your Leesa or Sapira mattress needs a firm, sturdy base to not only give you the best rest, but to give your mattress a longer life. Here are a few options that we recommend for your foam or hybrid mattress:

Pro tip: You want a solid bed foundation, not a box spring. A box spring will not give your mattress the support it needs. It's not sturdy enough and eventually, your mattress will sag through the gaps in a box spring, ruining the mattress.

Of course, if you're ready to get better rest, Leesa has your back (literally). We've got two great mattresses, pillows, bases and sleep accessories for you to build your bedroom sanctuary and rest on.
