MY NIGHT WITH HAVEN MATTRESS

MY NIGHT WITH HAVEN MATTRESS

When settling down for the night, there’s a few bedtime must-haves that are essential to a good nights sleep. If you’re me, that’s my weighted blanket, cuddle buddy (cat or husband… it really depends on the night lol) Gilmore Girls episode on netflix, iphone on night shift, and more recently but most importantly – my Haven. Is it possible to love an inanimate object? Absolutely!

I have officially been sleeping on my Haven Mattress for 30 night’s now and I wanted to give you girls my honest review on the 14″ Lux Pillow Top, Innerspring Hybrid Mattress. (teaser, LOVE doesnt even begin to cover it) But first, a little information on Haven. Haven is a toxin free and chiropractic approved Canadian mattress brand located in British Columbia and is Canada’s first ever cruelty free, vegan plant-based foam mattress. All mattresses are Canadian made using top-quality materials that are also sourced in Canada! (proud Canadian over here! can you tell?).

While I was doing my research and learning about all the benefits of this “bed in a box” (10 year warranty, free shipping, 100 night trial, and many health benefits), I learned that in addition to being a great value as a result of direct to consumer distribution, Haven is also making a difference in the lives of others in a big way.

This is my favorite part!! For every 10 mattresses sold, Haven donates one brand new purpose built mattress to a Canadian charity! Allowing you the opportunity to not only upgrade your sleep, but to also support business and nonprofit leaders to grow Haven in a way to make a difference in our communities! How great is that?! Below are a few of their 10+ charity partners.

I have to say that Haven has so many options to choose from when it comes to choosing the perfect mattress for you! First, choose from 3 main options:

  • 14″ Lux Pillow Top, Innerspring Hybrid Mattress with unsurpassed support of 2,400 coils ( 4X more than the industry average ) delivers contouring support and reduced motion transfer. 
  • 10″ Haven Rejuvenate Talalay Latex + Specialty Foam Mattress a luxurious all-foam type mattress. Supportive lower layers of high-density specialty foam deliver a strong foundation of support. Top 1″ layer of Talalay latex gives amazing contouring and low motion transfer.
  • 6″ Haven “Campus” Student Specialty Foam Mattress 
    The perfect value-priced mattress without compromise to support or off-gassing. Haven eco-friendly solution designed for kids from age 3+.  
    1″ Top layer of cool gel specialty foam aids in improved sleep temperature control. This more plush layer delivers good contouring and longer sleep periods from reduced pressure points. 
    5″ of clean, plant-based specialty foam. Ultra-low off-gassing with no chemical smells. 

Next, Customize your firmness!
“Your not a one comfort fits all kind of person… don’t settle for a one comfort fit mattress!”

(8/10 Contouring Firm ) Middle transition layer is the same density from head to toe. Ideal if you’re looking for more push up from the lower layers.

(6/10 Medium Firm Plus + with softer zoned layers) middle foams layer are more forgiving, to ensure that you have an increased amount of sinking into feeling. By dropping the hips and shoulders into the bed more, we improve spinal alignment and make the body more horizontal on the bed.

DR. MARC NIMCHUK THE CHIROPRACTOR - CASE STUDY

DR. MARC NIMCHUK THE CHIROPRACTOR - CASE STUDY

“The 100-night guarantee is what really sold me on Haven...it’s a no-lose situation.”

 

Dr. Marc Nimchuk, chiropractor and owner of Momentum Health, is also a Haven owner. He says his personal experience with Haven is what prompted him to start recommending it to his patients.

 

Dr. Marc Nimchuk knows firsthand the importance of a high-quality mattress. The Kelowna chiropractor and married father of two says that owning a Haven mattress has given him an appreciation for a mattress that provides exactly the right balance of comfort and support. “Our biggest fear about buying a Haven was that we’d find it really uncomfortable,” he says. “But that hasn’t happened. We’ve owned a Haven for 8 months, and it’s been splendid.”

 

As a sports enthusiast who travels frequently, Dr. Nimchuk’s busy and active lifestyle means that quality sleep matters. It matters even more for his wife, a registered nurse whose erratic shift work schedule means she has to be able to get to sleep quickly at any time of day.

 

Says Dr. Nimchuk:

“Our old mattress worked okay for us, but we wanted to move from a queen size to a king, and when we started researching the mattresses available on the market, we found Haven - and I really liked everything they said.”

 

 

SLEEPING EASY THANKS TO HAVEN

Dr. Nimchuk says the biggest surprise with his Haven was how easy the purchasing process is.

“We didn’t have to do any work! We ordered the Haven, and it showed up on our doorstep.“

 

Dr. Nimchuk says that his own personal experience with the product makes it easy to recommend investigating Haven to his friends and family, as he and his wife have found Haven to suit their exact needs. Dr. Nimchuk says his quality of sleep has improved significantly since he bought a Haven - a difference he notices most when he travels.

 

“It feels so nice to be back in my Haven when I’m at home,” he says. “It’s a very noticeable difference. My quality of sleep is noticeably poorer when I travel. The level of comfort and support I get from my Haven is something I can’t find when I’m on the road.”

 

CCA CERTIFICATION, 100-NIGHT GUARANTEE MAKE HAVEN AN EASY CHOICE

While Dr. Nimchuk is always careful about what products he does and does not recommend to his patients, he says that Haven’s 100-night guarantee allows him to ensure that if he does recommend a Haven to a patient, he can ensure that it’s the ideal solution for that particular patient.

 

“If the patient buys the mattress and can test the product for 100 nights and return it if it’s not right for them, then it’s a no-lose situation. The 100-night guarantee is what really sold me and my wife on the Haven.”

 

Haven is the first, and thus far only, Canadian bed-in-a-box to be certified by the Canadian Chiropractic Association as a spine health device. The mattress’ zoned support layers and flexible contouring foams are ergonomically designed to promote healthy spine alignment.

 

Haven Mattress Company typically recommends allowing for a 30-day adjustment period for new buyers to acclimate to their mattress. Buyers may not notice the effects of Haven’s chiropractic zones and spine alignment feature for a few weeks. A 100-night guarantee means Haven buyers can allow for an adjustment period and determine whether or not Haven is right for them before making a commitment.

INSPIRATION:

 

It’s happened! It’s finally happened! We have gotten our mattress off the floor and back onto a bed frame again! Back in April 2018, I had the inspiration to rip apart our bedroom. I no longer loved our decor and since I have a husband who can MAKE ME FURNITURE, I started planning and pinning for our new “remodel”. My main inspiration came from a beautiful tall boy dresser we inherited from Kris’s Gram when she passed away a couple of years ago. It’s a gorgeous, true mid-century piece made from teak. I love that we can keep this piece of family history in our home. (We also have a few of her hand stitched embroidery pieces framed in our room. see if you can spot them in our build video.)

So with my main inspiration secured, I started to build my vision for the room around it. I knew I wanted a deep blue for a feature wall and wanted to use copper as our metal accent. The dark IKEA furniture definitely had to go, along with the electric fireplace that we NEVER used. we sold both the bedframe and fire place within a week! Excellent right?! Not, not excellent because designing and building a bed frame is a big project… especially when Kris likes to always challenge himself with each new build. Why couldn’t he just build a bed frame with right angles and be done with it? Because that’s not the way he rolls… Which I love. I am so proud of the furniture he makes us. It is always beautiful, functional and I love that he keeps pushing himself to learn new techniques. I can’t wait for the day he tackles a project with mortise and tenon joinery, if only to prove to me that is indeed an actual thing. Doesn’t it sound like a made up term?? I think so.

 

With the bedframe and fireplace gone, we now had room to move the tall boy into our room. My motivation factor was soaring! I painted the feature wall a beautiful deep royal blue. I was in love. I started sourcing out decor pieces from my favourite store: Goodwill. There are so many beautiful vintage pieces just waiting for new homes. Gold and brass are much easier to find, so the challenge for copper pieces made the hunt that much more thrilling. I also sourced out some copper piping from Home Depot for our curtain rods and am so happy with the way they turned out. I was also on the hunt for the perfect weaving to hang over our bed. I have found one that I am really happy with, but it’s still not quite perfect. I know exactly what I want and might have to just make it myself. If I do, I’ll post about it and share my process too, because sharing is caring.

 

Well, if you were counting you will have noticed that I am writing this post in March, and I started this bedroom project last April. Because I sold our bed frame so quickly, we have been sleeping with our mattress on the floor for almost a year! We also had some water damage over the summer, resulting in us needing to put new drywall in under the window… and yes, repainting the beautiful blue wall. We also needed to replace baseboards and do a lot of work to save our carpet. All that to say, this remodel has taken some time to complete, but I am over the freaking moon that our bedroom is finally finished and I really really love how it all turned out!

WOULD WE BUILD AGAIN?

 

We started designing the room around the tall boy dresser but I really feel like Kris’s bed frame has stolen the show. He make a mid century twist on a sleigh bed. The angles are perfect and the walnut pairs beautifully with the teak dresser. He filled any knots with black epoxy and it looks perfect. There isn’t a single thing I would change about this bed.
