What Every Custom Tempur-Pedic Mattress Should Have

Your home-made Tempur-Pedic mattress will have:

Now let's take each one and see what you'd actually need to make your mattress.

Your Mattress's Memory Foam Layer

This layer is by far the most important part in your mattress. It basically makes or breaks comfort so choose wisely.

Memory foam is available at discount prices but not only does wholesale foam not last very long but it doesn't behave like the real thing either. You can select from a handful of well known manufacturers to get cut-to-order slabs (Isoform, Novaform, Isotonic and Sensus are such examples).

It would be a great advantage to try to source the foam locally to try it out yourself. Unfortunately, this material is a niche product and few local stores will have it in stock. You may have to, therefore, buy sight-unseen which is when you should only go with brand names.

You can use custom-cut slabs or better yet, a memory foam topper -- basically the same thing. The choice for ready-cut memory foam toppers is wider and you can afford to be picky about the quality.

If you want to add some luxury to your matress you can use a genuine Tempur-Pedic overlay over the core. Not only is it much cheaper than buying a Tempur-Pedic mattress but it's guaranteed to be made of premium Tempur foam.
