Mattress shopping can be incredibly challenging, especially if you have never bought a mattress before. You may think about doing some research before you go into your local Sleepwell Mattress retailer, but what should you know before entering a mattress store? There are a few things you should know about your size, material, and firmness preferences as well as your budget. Read on, take notes, and get ready to buy a new mattress! Here are three things you should consider before you set foot in a mattress store.
Mattress size is one of the easiest variables to pin down when you are shopping for a new mattress. The size you choose will either depend on the size of your bedroom or the size of the bed you already have. Beds come in seven common sizes: crib, twin, twin XL (extra long), full, queen, king, and California king. It is helpful to know what size of mattress you are looking for right off the bat so that you can see if the mattress store has the size you want in stock. Crib and twin sizes are standard for children and teens, while twin XL, full, and queen are more comfortable for tall teens or young adults. Couples often prefer queen, king, or California king mattresses.
2. Mattress Type
The next and most complex thing you should look into is the type of mattress you want. There are three main configurations of mattress: innerspring, foam, and hybrid. You should also think about whether you want a one- or two-sided mattress, classic innerspring or pocket coils, and what type of foam material you want. Latex, memory foam, and gel foam all have different attributes and price points, so be specific about your wants and needs in order to find the ideal mattress for you. The firmness you require will depend on many factors, including your weight and sleeping style. There are also optional features like pillow tops to consider, so look online to see what mattresses your local store offers. Once you have a shortlist of mattresses to look at, stop by your local mattress store and try them out!
The most important thing you can do when shopping for a mattress is to find a balance between comfort and price. Just because you have a strict budget does not mean that you have to eschew comfort and support altogether. Hybrid mattresses, pocket coil mattresses, and more come in a wide range of prices that will fit any budget. Some mattress stores even offer attractive financing options!
