Shopping For A New Mattress
By Ginny Badcock
Shopping for a new mattress is a very important process in your life. Nothing can cause more issues than getting an improper sleep on a bed not made for you.
I’ve scoured the internet and found some of the best tips for buying a bed, and I gathered them into one location! So enjoy, and happy hunting!
Mattress shopping involves a lot of lying down, getting up and moving around. It can be fun, but it’s also a lot of work.
Wearing supportive shoes and casual, comfortable clothing will make your shopping experience easier and more enjoyable.
Know Your Mattress Size
Write down the width, length, and height of your current mattress so you can be sure your new mattress is going to fit. Jot down the dimensions of your room as well, in case you decide to upgrade to a larger mattress.
The support system of a mattress is comprised of innerspring coils (these can be wrapped or linked), high-density foam, or a combination of the two.
Coil count and gauge can vary among different brands of inner spring mattresses. Check with your Sleep Expert and take a look at the price tag to know exactly what you’re getting.
Do your homework
Research your options before you go to a store, narrowing down the mattress size and mattress type that suits your individual needs. Think back to a time when you had an amazing sleep at a hotel or friend’s house. Use that as your starting point to help narrow down choices.
Go for a test drive
Once you’ve found a few mattresses you’re interested in, try them out using the S.L.E.E.P. test. Take off your shoes and lie down in various positions. It’s best to go mattress shopping in comfortable pants so you can move around.
