Are you looking for a new mattress? Beds delivered in a box right to your door are becoming increasingly popular and it might be difficult to determine which one is the best choice for you. Especially with so many available on the Canadian market. Not only is it overwhelming when you start to sift through the seemingly endless offerings, but at the end of the day, it is a very important decision as you spend roughly a third of your day in bed. After reviewing several, bed in a box mattresses in Canada, we have narrowed the top eight we think will work best for a night of comfy sleep.
The Douglas Mattress is our pick for the best bed in a box mattress in Canada. This mattress is made just for Canadians. It is designed and made in Canada which makes it a truly Canadian bed. Aside from its patriotic nature, this is a well-made product that provides relief on all those pressure points and balanced support for everyone. It has three layers of high-quality foam to provide a cool night sleep and all the pressure relief support you could want in a mattress. Whether you are a back, side or stomach sleeper, this mattress will provide you with the perfect level of balanced support. If you are a hot sleeper, this is the mattress you want. The Douglas CoolSense® cover and ecoLight® cooling gel foam layer give you a cool night sleep because they absorb that heat and provide fast dissipation. And we can not forget its amazing motion isolation feature. If your partner tosses and turns all night, this mattress will make sure you do not feel it like you might with other mattresses. Douglas has put out an affordable product made in Canada especially for Canadians.
The Novosbed Memory Foam Mattress is an extremely close second to the Douglas Mattress and we had trouble deciding between the two. This premium mattress has three firmness levels so you can find just the right fit for you. And their perfect firmness guarantee, 120-night trial, and 15-year warranty make this a spectacular runner up choice for a bed in a box mattress in Canada. For firmness levels, choose from soft, medium and firm. If you feel like the bed is too soft or too firm once you have tried it out, the company will send out a free Comfort+ adjustment kit that zips right on top so you can relax in your bed with just the right level of comfort. As a note, if you are finding you need this addition, you have to try the bed for 30 days before you will qualify for the kit. This mattress is made of high-density and open airflow foam to help dissipate heat for a cool night’s sleep. It also includes a washable removable top cover that is extremely luxurious.

The Benefits Of A Bed In A Box Mattress
Let’s face it, you will spend about a third of each day in bed and so you need a mattress that is going to be comfortable, supportive and in your budget. Beds in a box have become more and more popular in recent years, but you might wonder what are the benefits of buying your mattress this way.
One thing you are likely to notice is that purchasing your mattress this way can save a fair amount of money. This is because companies are selling directly to you and do not have to have the overhead costs of showrooms and salespeople who get commissions.
Sleep Trial And Warranty
Another perk is that you get a generous trial period to test out your new mattress. All of the mattresses on this list have at least a 100-night trial period so you can decide if your new mattress is going to work for you. Not to mention, the long warranty period of at least 10 years if you do plan to keep any of the mattresses on this list.
Easy To Move And Setup
When you purchase a bed in a box, the mattress comes vacuum-sealed in a box delivered directly to your door. This box can easily be maneuvered through the house by just one person. This saves the hassle of setting up a delivery time or trying to find a truck so you can haul the mattress home from the store. Not to mention, a vacuum-sealed mattress in a box is much easier to get up the stairs and make those tight turns than a traditional mattress.
Best Bed In A Box Mattresses Canada 2021 Reviewed
The Douglas Mattress is our top pick for a reason. This medium-firm mattress is made for any kind of sleeper: back, side or stomach. The high-density memory foam is environmentally conscious with 40% less carbon input and besides that, it is lighter which makes for a more breathable mattress. The multiple foam layers put this product on a whole new level for support and motion isolation.
The bottom layer is six inches of support foam which is going to eliminate most of that motion transfer that occurs at night. Gone are the nights of staying awake while your partner tosses and turns. On top of that is a two-inch layer of Elastex® foam which gives you that supportive layer and on top of that is the two-inch layer of ecoLight® cooling gel foam which does not retain heat and still provides great support. Then add the CoolSense® cover which wicks away moisture and you will have a cool dry sleep every time you lay down. That CoolSense® cover is also removable and washable.
The support this mattress provides is ideal for any sleeping position providing balanced support for back sleepers, pressure point relief for stomach sleepers and side sleepers. For uninterrupted, supported sleep, this mattress is your best bet.
The Novosbed is a close second to our top mattress and for good reason. This premium bed in a box mattress offers three firmness levels including soft, medium and firm, giving you the ability to select just the right level for your preference. If you find that after 60 days you do not have the right level of firmness or softness, Novosbed offers a free comfort+ addon which zips right on the top of your mattress to make adjustments without having to send it back.
This mattress has three layers of foam in addition to the washable cover. The comfort zone of foam allows for air circulation to disperse heat and give you that perfect cool night sleep. Below that, the transition zone is a high-density foam layer that provides body contouring, pressure point relief and movement isolation. This is also the layer that helps reduce that motion between sleeping partners, so you can have a restful night’s sleep. Even if your partner is tossing and turning all night. The final layer provides the base support for even bodyweight distribution.
If you are looking for a pillow top mattress, look no further than Logan and Cove’s bed in a box offering. Logan and Cove have combined the support of pocketed coils with the comfort of memory form to create this mattress. Made from premium materials to create six layers of comfort and support.
The gel memory foam in the top layer is heat-dissipating and the breathable temperature-regulating silk along with Tencel® gives sleepers a breathable, dry and cool night sleep. Under that top layer are multiple layers of foam that conform to your body for relief on all the pressure points and provide lumbar support, no matter which position you sleep. The bottom portion of the mattress has individually wrapped coils and memory foam that absorb all that motion your partner might create, giving you a restful night’s sleep.
Choose between two firmness options, including luxury firm and medium plush. Another benefit of this mattress is the edge support foam. With this technology, you will be supported even if you are sitting or laying on the edge of the mattress.
Recore uses allergen-free graphite latex foam to provide you with a healthy and clean sleep surface. We are in love with the cover that comes with this mattress. It has silver coated, antimicrobial technology and is machine washable. The graphite infused latex foam layer working with a cooling gel layer keeps the temperature at an optimal level every night because it reduces thermal energy through open-air channels to release heat and moisture you produce. And remember, the latex is allergen-free!
The high-density base provides support for motion isolation to reduce the transfer of motion between you and your partner. You will love the way your body feels every morning after a restful night’s sleep on this mattress.
The Brunswick makes our list because of the durable quilted cover, cool cushioning comfort, and edge to edge support. This bed has five layers of memory foam and reinforced springs. It provides a great deal of support and comfort in a mattress. The cooling features will give even the hottest sleeper a quality night sleep. The top quilted layer features moisture-wicking fabric and under that a cooling layer of gel foam plus three zones of pocketed springs keep air circulating and you cool and comfortable all night long.
It provides relief on all those pressure points, especially your lower back and hips helping you to wake up refreshed every morning. If your partner is prone to tossing and turning, the motion isolation found in this mattress is excellent. You will have a restful night’s sleep and not even notice your partner’s movements.
Polysleep offers a Canadian made bed in a box at an affordable price. Made of four layers of foam in addition to a liquid repellant cover, this mattress measures 10 inches high. We love the liquid repellant cover that minimizes spills or accidents. The first layer of foam has an antimicrobial hybrid foam to keep you healthy and happy, protecting you from bacteria and dust and reducing allergens. The next three layers provide support and including edge support to keep your mattress from getting flat when you sit on the edge.
With all these layers, there is very little motion transfer so you will not be affected by someone else’s tossing and turning. The foam used in this mattress will help relieve pressure at all those points on your body and provide support in all the right places.
Juno earns its spot on our list because it delivers a comfortable bed with the lowest price on our list. This is truly the best option if you are on a budget. Juno mattresses start at just $249, so anyone can have this bed in a box shipped directly to their door at a very budget-friendly price. Juno labels their mattress medium-firm, which they say provides support for sleepers of any position. We found that it lacked a bit of the support we needed and found in some of the higher-priced models. The price of the mattress matches the simplicity of the product.
While other mattresses on our list have multiple layers built into it, the Juno has two layers total. The top is a full-body cooling gel foam layer and the bottom is made of total support foam. If you are looking for a simple, no-frills bed in a box at a budget price, this is the one for you.
To round out our list, we chose the Endy Mattress. One of our favourite things about this mattress is that it is temperature neutral, unlike other memory foams on the market. This means you will have a consistent firmness level no matter the season and it keeps you cool throughout the night. The Endy foam releases body heat faster than other conventional foams you might find in other mattresses on the market. The mattress comes with a micro-quilted cover that is removable and washable.
Under that, the Endy comfort foam allows for great airflow and that cool night sleep we were talking about. Other foams will harden or soften based on the temperature in the room or that you create, but not Endy because of that patented open-air cell foam. A layer of transitional foam helps create a zero motion transfer mattress. Do not let your partner’s tossing and turning take away from a good night’s sleep. With Endy, you will not have to worry about feeling any of that movement. The bottom layer provides a fantastic level of support. This all adds up to a mattress that responds directly to your needs and sleep style so you can have the best night’s sleep every night.
The Apollo hybrid mattress is one of the more expensive mattresses on our list, but it also uses some pretty innovative technology to create a better mattress. This mattress features 5 layers if you include the cover, which we do because it is made of a high-grade upholstery fabric that stays cool to the touch and wicks moisture away from your body to prevent you from waking up covered in sweat – not a good feeling. Below the cover, 2” of CopperGel high-density memory foam is infused with two effective cooling technologies to ensure you truly never wake up in a sweat again.
The micro-gel beads and antimicrobial copper make this one of the most effective cooling memory foams available, counteracting memory foam’s tendency to overheat itself and the people sleeping on top of it. The 2” open-cell memory foam layer is highly breathable and is responsible for the exquisite pressure relief you’re bound to experience immediately upon lying down. This layer’s open-cell style ensures proper airflow to keep the mattress cool and clean. This mattress features 1” Aeroduct pocketed micro-coils rather than the standard 8” coils to achieve better motion isolation but still deliver supportive contouring and thermal regulation.
The main support layer is made up of 7” dual-layer high-density support foam with not one but two load-bearing base layers for head-to-toe support and incredible motion isolation. Even if your partner falls into bed, you’ll most likely stay sound asleep. The Apollo hybrid mattress also features 360-degree edge support thanks to sidewalls encircling the perimeter of the mattress – say goodbye to sliding to the floor when you sit on the edge of the bed to put your socks on in the morning!
The GhostBed mattress has 4 layers if you count the plush cover. The cover is a stretchy and durable fabric combination of polyester and viscose for a cozy, soft texture. The cover will stretch easily with the mattress so you won’t feel any resistance when sinking into the comfort layer below. The cover lies on top of a 1.5” layer of aerated latex foam that promotes healthy airflow and also works to keep you cooler at night, giving the warmth your body generates a better place to go. This layer gives the mattress a nice responsive bounce as well.
The real support of the mattress is found in the bottom two layers of the GhostBed mattress. There is a 2” gel memory foam layer that has larger cells than the average memory foam to promote cooling during sleep as well as provide another layer of contouring and support to your spine in any sleep position. The bottom layer of the mattress is 7.5” thick and is made of a high-density foam that promotes proper spinal alignment, provides the right amount of lumbar support and pressure relief, but maintains the necessary give for comfort reasons.
The taller profile of this mattress will please those who enjoy a tall bed, and you’ll be able to take advantage of a long 20-year warranty since there are no coils in the support layer. This bed is made in Canada and comes with a 101-night sleep trial so you can test the firmness and make sure that it’s a good fit for your needs and sleep style. This bed has excellent durability, effective cooling technologies, and a medium-firm firmness rating designed for lasting support and pressure relief.
What Should You Consider Before Buying A Bed In A Box Mattress?
So, you have decided that a bed in a box delivered directly to your door is the way to go, but what else should you know? We have a list of things to help you narrow down which mattress and company will be best for you.
Delivery And Return Options
All the mattresses on our list offer free delivery in Canada (unless you live in a very remote location), but there are other options out there. Some mattresses might come with a white glove set up service, but sometimes this is a hassle trying to set up a delivery and installation time. We have found that the super easy DIY option available with the mattresses on our list is a great way to set up your mattress on your time. If you decide to look at other mattresses that did not make our list, be sure you are aware of any delivery charges and added services available.
When it comes to returning a mattress, you will want to make sure the company gives you enough time to come to a decision. We love the 120-night trial that many of the mattresses on our list offer, but there are some out there that offer much less time. The trial period of your mattress is very important in case you ever change your mind before the trial is up.
In addition to the trial time, you might also want to look at how companies will pick up the mattress if it does not work for you. Many mattresses, including the ones on our list, have a trial period you must reach before they will even come and pick it up. If you do decide you do not want the mattress, many companies will donate them. It is a good idea to understand the return process and what happens to your mattress if you decide it is not right for you.
Base For Your Bed
Be sure you understand what base will work best for your new mattress. Some foam mattresses will require a flat hard surface, while others will work fine with slats. Typically you will not need a box spring. If you plan to use a frame you already have, be sure to measure. You do not want to get your new mattress only to find that it will not fit.
Breaking In Your Bed
When you first open your new mattress there are a few things to remember just in case you are thinking you will immediately be in love. You might be, but for the majority of people, the mattress is going to take some time to break in. At first, there might even be a funny odour. Just let the mattress air out for a few hours and this should dissipate. Opening a window helps.
If you are thinking it is super uncomfortable when you lay down that first night, you will not be alone. For one thing, this mattress is different than what you are likely used to so it will take some time to adjust. You might be changing to memory foam from a traditional mattress and that alone is an adjustment.
The foam is going to take a little time to conform to your body and fit you in all the right places. This is why many of the mattresses on our list require you to keep it for approximately 30 days before you can even think about sending it back. Do not get discouraged the first night. Give it some time and sleep on it before you make a decision.
Having a bed in a box mattress in Canada delivered directly to your door is becoming a popular way to purchase a mattress and for good reason. The trial periods and ease of set up make this an easy way to purchase a big-ticket item. No matter what position you sleep in or what level of firmness or softness you desire, there is a bed in a box for you and we hope that our list has helped you narrow down the options. There are so many available throughout Canada and it can be tough to sort out what will work best for you. With this list, we hope some of the guesswork when purchasing your new mattress will go out the window, so you can get a good night’s sleep every night. Sleep tight!
