Origins Mattress Review: 5 Things to Look For When Buying a Mattress

When we were younger, we used to love staying up late – sometimes pulling an all-nighter with our friends or ‘ton’ to just stay up late to watch movies, chat on the internet or just scroll through social media. But wow times have seriously changed – nowadays, we just love our sleep and can’t wait to lay our head down after a long day for a restful night. Who else can relate?

Most of us know that sleep is important and getting 7-8 hours a night may be quite challenging for some considering our busy schedules. But as much as we can, quality sleep and falling asleep quickly is important for us. When planning for the ultimate sleeping experience, a good mattress, pillow, bedsheet and even a blanket/quilt can make all the difference. Today, we’re going to share our experience of choosing a mattress and pillows that suits our sleeping habits and budget. Here’s 5 reasons why the Origin Hybrid® Mattress and Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow will promise a good night’s sleep.

But before that, here’s us happily unboxing our new mattress and pillows!

Origin Hybrid® Mattress

1. Affordable & Value For Money

When looking for a suitable mattress, price is definitely an important consideration. The typical king-size mattress (190 x 182 cm) will set you back on a retail price ranging between $300+ and can go up to almost $2,000. The Origin Hybrid® Mattress is affordably priced at just $829 (this is their current year-end 2020 sale price). It’s seriously such a good deal and value for money to get as it is made with high quality springs and natural latex with their signature pressure-relieving foams. There’s no other better value for money king-size mattress than this. 

2. Designed For Health & Comfort

Besides being affordable and value for money, the Origin Hybrid® Mattress is specially designed by veteran designers partnered with sleep experts in Germany to create a mattress with signature pressure-relieving foams and an all-natural latex layer that conforms to your body. This provides the ultimate comfort, luxurious all-round back support and also helps relieve pain for those experiencing back issues. In terms of bed firmness, it is not too hard with a firmness rating of 6.2 (optimal for health and restorative sleep as recommended by orthopedics). It has a natural bounce to it with a nice sinking feeling accompanied with a supportive sensation that promotes natural spine alignment.

The mattress is also resistant to external dust mites or mold, so those with allergies or are sensitive to these external allergens can rest easy. The king-size mattress measures 183 x 190 x 25 cm.

3. Hypercool™ Cooling Technology 

The Origin Hybrid® Mattress comes with 6 layers of comfort – one of which worth highlighting is their  Hypercool™ cooling technology – innovatively designed and built into the mattress. With Singapore’s hot and humid weather, the Origin® Cooling Gel Ventilated Memory Foam works perfectly to efficiently dissipate heat through its high-density, high rebound memory foam. 

In addition, their uppermost tencel layer promotes air-flow throughout the mattress unlike basic open-cell memory foam, keeping temperature even cooler.

4. No Partner Disturbance 

One of the disturbances that most of us may experience while sleeping is when your partner moves or gets in and out of bed. For us, this is something we’ve always needed and thankfully the Origin Hybrid® Mattress is fitted with a top class memory foam and the highest quality calico encased Vanadium steel pocket springs. What this does is it isolates motion, and the micro precision springs below will only move independently no matter the impact or weight. An effective solution that we all have been needing for a long time!

5. After-sales Services, Maintenance & Long-lasting

The great thing about purchasing our mattress and pillows from Origin is that they offer free delivery, returns and 15 years warranty. Also there’s very little risk in case you’re not satisfied with your purchase, as they offer a 120-night trial (one of the longest trial periods)! 

There’s very minimal maintenance required as the mattress is anti-parasitic (bed bug and dust mite resistant), anti-microbial (bacteria, virus and fungi resistant) and designed to reduce allergic reactions.

Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow ($129, U.P. $159)

We’ve been using the Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow for a few weeks now and we’re really impressed. The difference we feel every morning is very obvious – we used to have back aches or neck strains after waking up but surprisingly they’re all gone. This is because the latex pillow moulds to the shape of your head which gives you the right level of sleep support.

We also used to have trouble falling asleep – taking 30 minutes to an hour just to go into deep sleep. With the Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow, we do not have to adjust much and can fall asleep easily  with its responsive foam that provides full support on the head and neck.

In terms of long-lasting and durability, the pillow has a removable pillow cover luxuriously threaded with Tencel fabric (softer compared to cotton). You can remove this to wash often and keep your pillows in tip-top condition.

Overall, the Origin Hybrid® Mattress and Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow is definitely a worth it investment. We love it so much and spend a lot of time on our beds, just relaxing and having a good night’s rest. Get the Origin Hybrid® Mattress or the Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow today.
