Ah, the pull out sofa. A great invention in theory (turn any room into a bedroom!), but in practice…well, I’ve never slept on a comfortable pull out sofa. In fact, “pull out sofa” is basically a synonym for uncomfortable.

But of course, we put up with pull out sofas becasue they are very practical. For anyone with limited space, a pull out sofa allows you to graciously host out of town friends and family. They also allow you to do things like use a spare bedroom as an office or den instead of a dedicated second bedroom (after all, you likely only need it to be a guest bedroom a fraction of the time). Alternatively, for anyone who owns a vacation rental, a pull out sofa allows you to sleep more guests, which can make your property more appealing.

Enter the Tempur-Pedic Mattress Topper - the easy, effective, and most impactful way to turn any  uncomfortable bed into a bed your guests will love. And Tempur-Pedic Mattress Toppers are three inches thick and are made out of the same material as Tempur-Pedic’s world renowned mattresses – so this will make a big difference..

All you’ll need to do is unroll the mattress topper onto the pull out coach mattress, put the bed’s fitted sheet around it and the mattress, and your guests will feel like they’re sleeping in a real bed on a great mattress. Then, when you need to turn the bed back into a sofa, just roll up the Tempur-Pedic Mattress Topper and store it in the closet. It’s aasy as that — and an easy fix that’ll show your guests you care about their comfort.

My Tempur-Pedic Mattress Topper Experience

Tempur-Pedic sent me a mattress topper to try, and I knew just the pull out couch I’d put it on: The couch in the the second bedroom at my girlfriend’s parent vacation house in Palm Springs, which is where we sleep when we visit.

Since they use this house for their own enjoyment and don’t host many guests, they’ve set up the second bedroom as a TV room/den. And while the couch itself is very nice and serves as a good place to relax and watch TV, the mattress inside said couch leaves much to be desired. In fact, in the past after sleeping on it, I’ve woken up several times during the night,and wake up in the morning sore.

So, I unboxed the mattress topper, rolled it out on top of the pull out couch mattress, made the bed, and laid down. The difference was night and day — and well, made my night and the following day a lot better.

Getting into bed that night, I found that the Tempur-Pedic Mattress Toppers cradles your body softly while providing plenty of support and tons of added comfort. I quickly fell asleep and didn’t wake up once during the night!

In the morning, I found that I was more rested and my body didn’t hurt…which of course helped me to wake up on the right side of the bed and ready for the day ahead. It’s obvious why, as of their mattress topper, Tempur-Pedic says: “Our proprietary formulation uniquely responds to your weight, shape and temperature, adapting to your body for truly personalized support.”

And on a practical note, one thing I also really like about this mattress topper is that it features a removable and washable cover that’s both dust-mite and allergen resistant. This is an especially worthwhile feature for vacation rental owners whose beds host many guests.


Other Travel-Related Uses:

Pull out couches are not the only way to utilize a Tempur-Pedic Mattress Topper. Try these too:

Transform Your Guest Bedroom: If you have a dedicated guest room with a spring mattress that’s seen better days, adding a Tempur-Pedic Mattress Topper is way more affordable than buying a new mattress, and will give the bed a luxury feel for your travelings guests.

Car Camping! When car camping (i.e. camping at campsites you can drive directly up to) it’s easy to bring the luxuries of home along with you…think: chairs, blankets, cooking equipment and a big tent. And now, you can bring your Tempur-Pedic Mattress Topper with you to be the most comfortable camper in your crew. I for one, will be brining mine!
