5 Tips For Mattress Shopping

As we said before, shopping for a mattress can be overwhelming. Not only is it a financial investment, it is also an investment in your health — having the right mattress affects your quality and quantity of sleep which subsequently can affect your entire life. Today, we’re giving you the tips you need for getting the best mattress.

Tip 1: Know Your Size

Size always matters. When thinking about replacing your mattress, you should think about:

  • How much space you and your sleeping partner may need to sleep comfortably
  • How a particular size will fit in your room
  • How it will work with your current bed platform or set

These aren’t the other factors that you need to consider either:

  • Do your pets sleep with you?
  • Do your kids crawl into bed with you?
  • Is it time for an upgrade?

Tip 2: Try Before You Buy

We suggest always trying before you buy! Plopping down in a showroom with other people and sales associates around can feel awkward, but trying a mattress out before you give over the credit card is a must! If you share your bed with someone, they should come with you and lay down with you at the same time. Why? Their body weight will affect how comfortable the mattress is for both of you.

Tip 3: Know Your Options

Before you step onto the mattress store floor, we also suggest doing your research and learning about all the various options you have that can affect mattress comfort and price. Those options include:

  • Innerspring mattresses
  • Memory foam mattresses
  • Latex foam mattresses
  • Hybrid mattresses
  • Air mattresses

Tip 4: Firm Versus Soft

The best place to start when buying a mattress is to determine if you want a hard or soft mattress. Mattresses come in a spectrum of comfort variances which can be altered by other factors such as a pillow top, wear, and mattress age. If you don’t know which you like best, ask a sales associate for help and they can get you on the right track.

Tip 5: Know the Specifics

When we say “specifics,” we mean the return and trial period policies, financing options, and more! Though it may not be possible for some mattress, if you have the option to try your mattress for 30 days, we say why not? Sleeping on your mattress for an extended period of time will give you a good idea whether or not it is the right option for you long-term.

We hope that our tips were helpful! Remember to quit searching for “mattress store near me” and to come into your local mattress store Mattress For Less. We would love to help you find the right mattress for you!
