Overview

Brentwood Home sells over a dozen different 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 memory foam offerings.

Some of the key strengths of the Brentwood Home memory foam mattresses include:

  • Extensive options available: Brentwood Home offers several mattresses with varying compositions and firmness levels. 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.
  • Budget choices available: the company features several straightforward budget options for people with limited money to spend on a mattress.

Potential drawbacks for the Brentwood Home mattresses include:

  • Shorter sleep trial on third party 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 in the Brentwood Home mattresses, you’re out of luck. The company does not share this information publicly.

We also have a review for the Brentwood Home latex mattresses and spring mattresses if you’d like to learn more about their other mattress lines.

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. This makes it very difficult to gauge the support and durability of the mattress, and it also makes it hard to comparison shop.

Many of these mattresses are also advertised with specific features based on their composition. This is a brief overview of some of these that you may find in the product descriptions:

  • Gel memory foam: this type of memory foam has small gel-filled beads interspersed within the foam. The goal of this is to improve cooling, but reviews are mixed about whether it can achieve that effect.
  • Ventilated foam: most of these mattresses have a layer of ventilated foam, which just means that small grooves have been cut into the support foams in order to try to prevent heat retention.

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. The Bamboo Gel line is currently exclusively sold through 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 mean 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.

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

This line of mattresses from Brentwood Home provides a number of choices for for people who are searching for a memory foam option. While the specific firmness level and performance can vary based on the model, you can expect these mattresses to reflect the typical characteristics of memory foam.

Support

Memory foam mattresses are normally thought of as achieving support through cradling or contouring. Memory foam — also known as viscoelastic foam — changes its shape based on the amount of weight and pressure applied. This allows the mattress to adjust to every individual to relieve pressure points and hug the body.

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 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 extremely plush to medium-firm. You can see a listing of these mattresses on the typical firmness scale in the table below.

Mattress Model Firmness Rating
Sequoia 6-7
Coronado 4-5
Sierra 5-6
9″ Bamboo Gel 2-3
10″ Bamboo Gel 2-3
11″ Bamboo Gel 6-7
13″ Bamboo Gel 5-6

Shoppers should be aware that all of these options have a 1” wool top layer. This may have more of a pillow-top feel and could affect how the firmness is perceived by any specific person.

Motion Transfer

Strong motion isolation is a well-established feature of memory foam mattresses. As a result, these mattresses generally can be expected to limit motion transfer, although this may vary based on the specific composition and firmness level.

Offgassing

Because memory foam can have some smell after initially unboxed, you should expect some non-harmful odor with the Brentwood Home mattresses. Every individual’s perception of the smell is different, but it is normal for it to take 24-48 hours before the smell dissipates. For most people, this isn’t a serious problem, but if you are extremely smell-sensitive, you might consider a mattress made with material other than memory foam.

Sleeping Hot

While the cradling effect of memory foam can make these mattresses extremely comfortable, they can also cause people to sleep hot. This effect will be even more exaggerated with the very plush models sold by Brentwood Home.

In their mattress descriptions, Brentwood Home describes features intended to increase air flow or temperature regulation. That said, it is hard to truly judge the effectiveness of these design features. Even with gel memory foam and ventilated foams, some customers find that they still sleep hot on memory foam mattresses like these.

Intimacy

Memory foams, especially plush memory foams, sink when pressure is applied. This can sometimes cause someone to feel stuck in the mattress, and the result can be some obstacles to sexual activity. A firmer model or a mattress made of latex or innerspring coils may be a better choice for consumers concerned about finding the optimal mattress for sex.
