Five Tips For Buying A New Mattress

Five Tips For Buying A New Mattress

Dec 01, 2023

Mattresses are long-term and often expensive investments, aren’t they?

And it is wise to take plenty of time when deciding on a new mattress, whether your old one has had its day or you just want to get a new one.

Because there is a new bed on the block that you really think it will improve your sleeping.

So make sure you’re getting the right set, especially since it’s such a costly household item.

Here are five tips to make the process much easier.
Here we go…

(1) Try Out The New Mattress

This may seem obvious, but it’s important to lie down on the mattress and make sure that it works for you, especially if the bed will be used by a couple.

There are many variables when it comes to comfort.

If one person enjoys a firmer set and another a softer set, it will be imperative that the store allows customers to test each option in order to find the exact right balance.

But if you choose to buy online, find out what is said about the mattress and find out if it has a guarantee in case it’s just not for you.

Investing in a mattress that allows each side to change its firmness and incline may be a good compromise if you do have a partner that has different tastes to you…

Who knows… they might be the sort who prefers to sleep on a bed of nails!

And if this is the case I would opt for a single bed in the same room.

(2) Think About Your Bedding

New mattresses are often deeper than older versions; some pillow-top options can be up to 14 inches deep.

An upgrade may mean purchasing all new bedding, specifically deep fitting sheets.

Also, many comforters may not cover the entire side of the bed if the set is over 14 inches.

This could require one to go up in size then.

For example, purchasing a king size duvet for a deep queen size mattress would look better than a queen duvet that happens to be too short.

So make sure that you can get your new bedding for your new mattress, or you will be sleeping on the mattress with no sheets.

Well… you could be, and getting a bit cold as well.

(3) Budget Wisely

A purchase like this one is an important investment, not only if you have plenty of money in your pockets, or you don’t have a lot of money to go around, do remember that…

Prices can vary widely, and some even reach thousands of dollars.
I know…

Shock and horror!

But there are beds out there that can be really expensive.

I will let you into a little secret though…

They are not always as comfortable as some cheaper brands out there.
Just think of it like designer jeans…

Make sure that you choose the best set that is within your budget.
Your bed is something you will use every single day, and it definitely has an impact on your physical health and rest.

Keeping this in mind, it’s smart to save some money beforehand before you go off to choose your quality bedding.

(4) Decide On The Ma


There are so many options when getting a new mattress, from memory foam to latex to waterbeds.

There are even hybrid options, such as latex and memory foam together.
Waterbeds are definitely not for everyone, and they often don’t provide enough support.

Not that they’re exactly like a mattress, sort of big bladder mattress…
Can I say that?

Some materials, like memory foam, are hotter than others and wear differently through the years.

This is why it’s crucial to go through all options before making the purchase.

(5) Get A Good Warranty

Warranties vary widely from store to store, as well as between manufacturers.''

Since this is an item that can sometimes wear quickly, it’s a good idea to get a warranty that is good for five years or longer.

Also, be sure to ask exactly what is covered by the warranty online or offline.
Some warranties only cover replacements under certain circumstances.

Which could mean that they are not covered for constantly jumping on them whilst in a pillow fight.

With these simple tips, you can make your next mattress buying experience a smooth process.

Well, as smooth as you can.
