Overview

Brentwood Home sells a wide range of mattresses through their website and through major retailers like Amazon and Costco. They categorize their mattresses as either memory foam, latex, or spring based on the key elements of the composition. This review focuses on their latex offerings.

Some of the key strengths of the Brentwood Home latex mattresses include:

  • Multiple options to consider: Brentwood Home offers several different latex mattresses with distinct characteristics — compositions, heights, and firmness. This allows shoppers to compare and contrast to find the mattress that is the best fit for them.
  • Extended sleep trial: for mattresses purchased directly from Brentwood Home, the company offers a risk-free 120 night sleep trial, which is nearly a month longer than what is offered by most competitors.
  • Mattresses at many price points: while latex mattresses are often pricey, Brentwood Home’s three options come in at low, medium, and high-end prices. This allows people who want a latex mattress to have options to consider at all budget levels.

Potential drawbacks for the Brentwood Home latex mattresses include:

  • Shorter sleep trial on retail orders: Brentwood Home does not extend its 120 night sleep trial to orders purchased from other retailers like Amazon; instead, that retailer’s return policy applies. This may make for a much shorter opportunity to test out the mattress in your own home.
  • Mattress specifications are not disclosed: if you are interested in knowing the density of the foam layers used or knowing more about the latex used in the Brentwood Home mattresses, you’re out of luck. The company does not share this information publicly.

About the Brentwood Home Latex Mattresses

 

Brentwood Home Latex Mattress Specifications

Brentwood Home manufactures 3 different models of latex mattresses. Each has a different composition and set of specifications, as described in the table below.

Mattress Model Specifications
Mirador Top: 1” wool, silk, and cashmere blend
Second: 2” natural latex
Third: 2.5” innerspring coils
Fourth: 2” natural latex
Fifth: 2” ventilated foam
Bottom: 6” support foam
Palmetto Top: 1” wool, silk, and cashmere blend
Second: 4” natural latex
Third: 2” ventilated foam
Bottom: 6” support foam
Solano Top: 1” wool
Second: 2” natural latex
Third: 2” ventilated foam
Bottom: 6” support foam

Brentwood Home does not list detailed information about the full specifications of these mattresses. For example, the company does not disclose the densities of the foams used in the support or comfort layers. They also don’t state the type of latex (Talalay or Dunlop) that is utilized. This makes it very difficult to gauge the support and durability of the mattress, and it also makes it hard to comparison shop.

Where It’s Made

Brentwood Home mattresses are made in the USA.

 

Buying Logistics

 

Where to Buy

Brentwood Home mattresses are sold through several outlets. Most are available directly from the company on its website. Some are also sold by Costco and Amazon.

Sleep Trial / Refunds

Brentwood Home offers a 120 night sleep trial on mattresses purchased directly from the company. They request that you try the mattress out for 30 days before initiating a return. However, if you are not satisfied with the mattress within the 120 day window, you can get a full refund. In that case, the company coordinates pickup of the mattress from your home.

It is important to be aware that this 120 night sleep trial does not apply to mattresses purchased from third party retailers. This could equate to much shorter trial periods depending on the retailer’s return policy. It also may require a very different return process than the one used for mattresses purchased directly from Brentwood Home.

Delivery

Shipping is free with your order of a Brentwood Home mattress. In general, you can expect the mattress to arrive 5-10 business days after an order is placed.

Standard delivery does not include any installation services or haul-away of your old mattress. The mattress is compressed inside of plastic packaging that is boxed up and delivered to your door. Once you remove the mattress from its packaging, it decompresses. The mattress will be sleep-ready in just a few minutes, but it may take up to 5 days for it to reach its maximum size and firmness.

People purchasing from third party retailers will want to confirm the shipping details before placing an order. This includes confirming that shipping is free and that the mattress will be delivered within the same timeline as products purchased directly from Brentwood Home.

If you purchase the Mirador mattress model in a King or California King size, then the mattress comes with white glove delivery. This means that the mattress is delivered, taken to the room of your choice, and installed in that room. It does not include haul-away service for your old mattress. The timeline for white glove delivery is 2-4 weeks.

Warranty

Brentwood Home offers a 25-year limited warranty on its mattresses. During the first 10 years of the warranty period, the company will repair or replace a mattress with a defect in materials or craftsmanship. For the last 15 years, the company will replace the mattress but at a prorated charge. In both cases, shipping costs are the responsibility of the purchaser. You can find full warranty details at https://www.brentwoodhome.com/pages/warranty.

Customer Service

Brentwood Home has been in the mattress business over 30 years in Los Angeles and started their online direct-to-consumer business in 2012. They do not have a rating from the Better Business Bureau but generally are thought of as offering a quality customer experience.

It is important to remember, though, that depending on where the mattress is purchased, Brentwood Home may not provide direct customer service. Instead, service needs may be handled through the retailer who sells the mattress. Because of this, customers should purchase this mattress from a retailer that they are familiar with and that has a good reputation for customer service.

Mattress Performance

The three latex mattresses from Brentwood Home have a number of differences between them, but each includes natural latex as the primary comfort layer.

Support

Because these mattresses have such varying firmness levels, it is hard to estimate exactly how supportive they will be, especially because this can be very subjective. In general, though, latex is known for providing a comfort layer with more bounce and resilience. At the same time, most latex mattresses are also able to respond to pressure in order to help eliminate pressure points and improve spinal alignment without causing someone to feel as though they are being swallowed by their mattress. The Mirador model, which includes small innerspring coils, may provide additional support and resilience to the mattress as well.

Durability

There is limited hard data about the Brentwood Home direct-to-consumer mattresses because they have only been on the market for a few years. Durability may vary based on the model and its composition as there are differences in the type and quality of materials that are utilized. Models that have lower-density latex or support foams are more likely to suffer from long-term durability problems, but unfortunately, Brentwood Home does not reveal the density of the foams used in these mattresses.

Firmness

Each mattress model from Brentwood Home is available in only one firmness option; however, options are available for mattresses ranging from plush to very firm. You can see a listing of these mattresses on the typical firmness scale in the table below.

Mattress Model Firmness Rating
Mirador 3-4
Palmetto 7-8
Solano 8-9

This spread of firmness levels means that there is not a traditional medium-firm option in the 6-7 range that works best for most sleepers.

Shoppers should also be aware that all of these options have a 1” top layer made of wool and in some cases other soft materials. This may provide more of a pillow-top feel and could affect how the firmness is perceived by any specific person.

Motion Transfer

Because it has more bounce and less contouring than traditional memory foam, latex typically permits more motion transfer. Despite this, latex usually offers enough motion isolation to prevent significant sleep disruptions unless you are very motion-sensitive when sleeping.

Offgassing

Latex foams have virtually no smell issues compared to memory foam. While you may notice some new mattress smell, this should be limited and very short-lived.

Sleeping Hot

The bounce of latex usually prevents sleepers from sinking into the mattress to a degree that would cause someone to sleep hot. That said, some of these mattress models are very plush and may permit more sink than other latex mattresses on the market.

Brentwood Home describes some of their mattress features as intended to increase air flow or temperature regulation. For example, ventilated foam has small grooves cut into it to try to prevent heat retention.

It is hard to truly judge the effectiveness of a design feature like ventilated foam, but most customers do not find that this type of mattress construction sleeps hot.

Intimacy

Latex comfort layers normally provide plenty of bounce for sexual activity, and as a result, this mattress should not be expected to interrupt that activity.
