Buying a mattress is one of the most major purchases you can make for your home. You will likely spend more time on your mattress than any other piece of furniture that you own. For this reason, take a few steps to make sure that you buy the best mattress for your lifestyle.
If you haven’t purchased a mattress in a while, it’s good to see what options are available before going to a store.
Although this is difficult to determine without first testing mattresses, a few physical factors can help direct your decision.
Nothing is worse than finding and purchasing your perfect mattress, just to realize you can’t fit it in your house. Check your space availability in your bedroom, and then decide on a size of mattress to fit.
Typically, specialty mattress stores will have more informed salespeople and information on mattresses than a generic furniture store. Be sure that where you choose to buy has a good reputation and helpful employees.
In order for you to know how well you like a mattress, you must test it out in the store. Search around looking for mattresses that meet your criteria, and then lay on each to see how you like them.
A comfort guarantee varies between brands, but is a certain period of time after you’ve purchased your mattress in which you can return or exchange it for free.
Many mattress brands and stores allow you to test the mattress in your home for up to thirty days. If you can, take this opportunity to verify that this mattress meets your sleep needs.
Make sure that the mattress you are purchasing offers a minimum ten year, non-prorated warranty.
Although buying just a mattress is all that seems necessary, you must also purchase a minimum of a box spring to support it as well.
The prices of mattresses can often be lowered with a little bartering done with a sales associate or store manager. Use the numbers you found online earlier to determine if you are getting a good deal.
