Critical Features to Look for in Quality Vacation Home Mattresses

Leslie Fleming

Do you have a vacation home that you occasionally spend time in but want to generate income from it? Renting the space to travellers and vacationers is one way of making extra cash. Unlike a hotel, vacation homes give travellers a one-of-a-kind experience, but you must make your facility attractive to guests. One way to stay ahead of the game is by buying high-quality mattresses. Guests want a good night's sleep after a whole day of hiking, swimming, and site-seeing, among other activities. Unfortunately, many people don't understand what makes quality mattresses. This article highlights essential features to look for in a commercial mattress.

Fire-Retardant Cover

When you leave your vacation home in the hands of strangers, you never know what might happen during their stay. For example, you should consider and address fire risks when renting your space to guests. Notably, mattresses can catch and spread fire fast, putting your guests' lives at risk. It is the reason you should buy mattresses with fire-retardant covers. Combined with other fire safety procedures, flame-retardant mattress covers give your guests peace of mind knowing there is one less fire hazard in a vacation home.


Even on vacation, guests want to save as much money as possible. Unfortunately, big vacation spaces cost a premium; therefore, travellers focus on renting small spaces. However, small spaces mean fewer beds, restricting the number of guests, which does not have to be the case. You can easily maximise the space in your vacation home by choosing your mattresses wisely. Made-to-move mattresses are a popular choice for small vacation homes because they can easily be stored away when not in use. For instance, a three-bedroom vacation home with a portable mattress can easily accommodate five guests. One guest can use the portable mattress in the living room or one of the bedrooms and store it away in the morning.

Natural Fibre Mattresses

Mattresses made from synthetic materials are affordable, but it does not mean that they are uncomfortable. For example, latex mattresses deliver firm support to the body, particularly the joints, such as the hips and shoulders. However, using latex mattresses eliminates guests allergic to the material from your market base. Mattresses made from natural fibres are a comfortable and safer bet. Additionally, natural fibres are more breathable, responsive and durable than synthetic mattresses in the market. When in the market for natural mattresses, stick to blended wool, cotton, cashmere or bamboo. While you will pay a premium for these mattresses, you will not regret the investment.  

Keep these things in mind as you look for hospitality mattresses

How to Protect Your Floors From Furniture Marks

When we started building a home together, my husband and I got a lot of furniture donations from friends and family. While this saved us a lot of cash, it did mean that we didn’t have a lot of say in the designs we ended up with; some of our larger pieces are a little old-fashioned and heavier than a lot of modern stuff you can buy in the shops now. While we like the eclectic look, it's still important for us to know how to keep this furniture clean and how to keep the flooring from getting damaged by these larger additions. After a bit of trial and error we found ways to prevent furniture and flooring from getting damaged.
