5 Tips For Buying A New Mattress

Is your old mattress saggy, uncomfortable, or otherwise in need of replacement? Buying a new mattress can be intimidating. After all, good mattresses are rather expensive and should last several years. The last thing you want is to realize a month after your purchase that you are now stuck with an uncomfortable mattress. Instead of rushing your purchase, follow these five tips for making a wise mattress choice:

Try Your Mattress In Person

Reading online descriptions of different mattress brands and styles may be helpful, but not nearly as helpful as actually testing out mattresses in person. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes that slip off, so that you can test the mattresses in comfort. Mattress salespeople are used to people testing their mattresses so there's no need to be self-conscious.

Take your time and lay in a variety of positions. If you normally sleep on your stomach, be sure to test the mattress that way. A good sign is if the mattress feels so good you get sleepy just from testing it out.

Try A Variety Of Mattress Styles

Start by testing a variety of mattress styles. Once you settle on your favorite style, you can narrow things down and focus on different models of that particular style. Some common mattress styles include firm (which offers a lot of support but not as much cushion), plush pillow-top (provides a thick layer of soft cushion between your body and the rest of the mattress), and memory foam (conforms to your body and is heat-sensitive).

Check With Your Doctor If Needed

If you have back or joint pain, you may want to consult your doctor about the upcoming mattress purchase. For example, some people with sore joints find that memory foam provides a lot of comfort and relief from their symptoms. This is especially important if you've been waking up with a stiff neck or sore back brought on by your old mattress.

Keep Your Partner In Mind

If you share your bed with a significant other, you will want to keep their preferences in mind. Ideally, go mattress shopping together. If you have very different mattress needs or preferences, look into getting an adjustable bed that can be customized per side. If your partner is larger in size or moves around a lot in their sleep, you may find you get better rest in a larger size bed.

Check The Return Policy And Warranty

Before you commit to your purchase, ask about the return policy and warranty. Many mattress stores allow you to return or exchange your mattress within a month or so of purchase, which can eliminate the pressure of getting the perfect mattress the first time.

By following these tips, you can purchase your mattress with confidence, knowing you're choosing the perfect mattress for you.
