The article highlights the benefits of single-sided beds. Most of the mattresses being sold are already single-sided beds. This is a trend that is expected to gain more momentum as flame resistant (FR) bedding lines are introduced. It is cheaper to provide FR protection on single-sided beds. These beds are suitable for consumers who may have bad backs and do not relish the physical challenge of turning the bed.
