What should you be looking for when buying a new mattress?

Author imageThe Mattress Warehouse

Knowing what to look for when buying a new mattress can be very daunting and overwhelming. The worst part is that there is no scientific way to predict whether a certain mattress will be right for you or not. But what I can do is provide you with some useful tips that might help you make a better decision as to on what you will be spending a third of your day on:

1.  You have already taken the first step if you are reading this… Research. Remember that you will be spending a lot of money on your new mattress so take your time to do the research in choosing the perfect mattress for you.

2.  If you have a health condition I suggest that you talk to your doctor.

3.  Support: You want firm support with a comfortable feel. You get 4 common types of mattress cores: innerspring, foam, latex and air-filled.

  • Innerspring mattresses have that bouncy feel.
  • Memory foam mattresses are very soft with no bounce.
  • Latex mattresses are also a foam mattress, but much firmer.
  • Air-filled mattresses lets you control how much air is inside for different firm or soft feels.

4.  Weight: Your weight plays an important part in mattress choices. If you are very light-weight, you will probably not be able to compress the foam (if choosing a pillow top), however if you are a heavier person, it might feel more comfortable with a little extra cushion between you and the coils.

5.  Your sleeping position plays a very important part. Let’s look at a few sleeping positions and which mattress would be best suited:

6.  Mattresses are investments – protect them by getting a waterproof mattress protector.

7.  Test drive – go to your nearest store and take your shortlist of mattresses and go and lie down on them for at least 10 minutes at a time. By just sitting on them will not help you make the best decision… unless you will only be sitting on your bed…

8.  And the last tip I am providing you with today, is probably the most important: SHOP AT STORES THAT SPECIALIZES IN MATTRESSES!
