5 Reasons to Purchase an Adjustable Bed

April 19th, 2018

A good nights sleep is important to maintaining our health, and may contribute to helping us maintain a active lifestyle. Furthermore, with an adequate amount of sleep we can perform better throughout the day, and feel better overall. For these reasons, and several others, an adjustable bed can help.

Here are five reasons why you should consider purchasing an adjustable bed:

1.) Fitting your Lifestyle

Most Americans like to read or watch television in bed, while a regular bed may cause strain on your neck and eyes. By purchasing an adjustable bed, you can get more comfortable while you read or watch TV by the push of a button.

2.) A Healthy Nights Sleep

Many people dont realize that sleeping on a flat mattress can actually increase aches and pains, and may even wosen sleep conditions. An adjustable mattress can help you find the most comfortable sleeping position by elevating your legs, torso, and body to your comfort level. Several studies show people reporting that they feel more energized and refreshed after switching to an adjustable mattress.

3.) Increased Relaxation

When taking a nap or trying to relax for a minute, we may need to add pillows under our legs and back to find the proper amount of support. An adjustable bad can help you take better naps and relax better by helping you get more comfortable.

4.) Affordability

Adjustable beds are actually way more affordable than you may think. While some adjustable mattresses can be expensive, there are several more affordable options, all available at Schrader Mattress.

5.) Easy to Move

While adjustable beds may seem like they would be awkward to move, they are actually quite easy. These beds can typically be taken apart, or folded to help them move more simply than other types of bed frames or box springs.

If you are interested in an adjustable mattress, we encourage you to contact us today at Schrader Mattress.

2018 Boca Bash

April 17th, 2018

The 2018 Boca Bash will take place on 4-29-2018 on Lake Boca. This event continues to grow larger and larger every year, while we advise that everyone drinking at the event should not operate their vessel.

This even typically attracts hundreds of boaters, and it has been advised that boaters should anchor on the north end of Lake Boca in the deeper water. Here it is much safer from the crowds and will be safe from the shallower water of the sandbar.

The only way to get to Boca Bash is by boat. So make friends with someone who has a boat, consider renting a boat, or finding a charter boat to escort you to this event.

Furthermore, if you decide to drink on your vessel and not drive, a custom mattress for your boat could be just what you needed. For all your boat and yacht custom mattress needs, contact us at Schrader Mattress.

Airbus Plans to Put Beds in the Cargo Hold

April 16th, 2018

Maybe all of the regulations on luggage size, or adding additional charges for more luggage was all for a reason. According to the Airbus Twitter account, they are planning on adding beds for passengers in the cargo hold of its jets.

At first, you may think of a dark and gloomy area, but mock ups look quite pleasant. With plush beds and a lot of white and lights, passengers can now enjoy more space and beds to sleep in while they travel from location to location.

While there are no windows in the cargo hold, this could also make for better sleeping, but also drive those claustrophobic people crazy.

It looks like the first jet to have beds in cargo holds will be released in 2020, so we can all wait anxiously until then.

At Shrader Mattress, we are happy to provide customers with custom mattresses for their private jets, yachts, RVs, and more. Give us a call today!

2018 Indian River Marine Flea Market and Fishing Show

April 14th, 2018

The Indian River Marine Flea Market and Fishing Show is set to sail into Vero Beach for two days of marine adventure from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 14-15 at the Indian River County Fairgrounds.

One of the most popular events is the fishing show, which features both seminars and interactive attractions. Both fishing displays and commercial vendors take up a 17,600 square foot air conditioned pavilion.

Here, you can find dozens of rods, reels, lures, and other items for sale. You may also find salt water fishing tackle that can be customized to your boating and fishing needs.

There will be several local boat dealers where customers can find and walk through the latest and greatest boats on the water in 2018.

“The Indian River Fairgrounds is the perfect venue since its right in the heart of the Treasure Coast and they offer the space we need,” said event promoter Larry Burdgick.

The Indian River Fairgrounds is located at 7955 58th Ave., Vero Beach, Florida and is easily accessible from Interstate 95 and the Florida Turnpike. There is free parking for this event.
