Five Tips to Finding the Perfect Mattress

1. Know What Matters Most in a Mattress

Before you start shopping, it’s important to know what matters most in a mattress. The following five factors will help you determine which mattresses are likely to be best for your needs:

  • Mattress Size: How big do you need the mattress? From twin XL to California King, you want to make sure that you consider the size of your mattress when doing research.
  • Mattress Firmness: Do you prefer softer or firmer surfaces? Some people prefer soft mattresses while others like them firm. Or, some prefer an in-between option like a medium mattress which is a middle ground between these two options. (You can find out which mattress is best for you based on your sleep type here.)
  • Mattress Type: What type of mattress is perfect for you? From innerspring to memory foam to hybrids, you want to make sure you select a bed type based on your needs. Some mattresses are better for side sleepers or stomach sleepers, for people that sleep hot, or for people with health conditions that need to be able to easily adjust their sleep position.

2. Establish a Budget

Next, you will want to establish a mattress budget. Mattresses can cost anywhere from $500 to $2000+ which is why you want to talk through your budget before hitting up the storefront.

This is also the time when you will want to consider whether you are looking to finance your mattress or buy it in cash.

3. Check Out Online Reviews

When it comes to shopping for a mattress, online reviews and ratings are a gold mine of information. However, keep in mind that everyone has their own sleep preferences and needs. As with any kind of review, the opinions expressed in customer feedback can be biased.

Online reviews can help you get an idea of how other customers feel about their purchases—and where your own priorities might match or differ from theirs. It’s worth looking for a mix of good and bad reviews to get a balanced sense of the products and the company that sells them. Having many good reviews doesn’t necessarily mean that the mattress is a perfect match for your sleep needs. Likewise, even if there are several negative comments, those don’t necessarily mean that the entire product line is poor quality or defective across the board.

4. Speak to a Mattress Professional

A mattress is an investment that should be made with care and consideration. As such, it’s important to educate yourself before making a purchase. A good place to start is by speaking with a mattress expert who will help you find the right mattress for you.

Some questions you can ask include:

  • “What are the features of this mattress?”
  • “What type of warranty does this mattress come with? How long is it good for?”
  • “Is there a return policy on mattresses at this store? What’s your policy if I decide I don’t like my new mattress after sleeping on it for a few nights?”
  • “How much do you charge in delivery fees and/or assembly charges (if applicable)?”

It’s important to come up with preliminary research and questions before entering the store so that you can get all of your questions answered.

5. Try Them Out In-Person

Lastly, there’s no substitute for testing out a mattress in person. You can’t tell how a mattress will feel until you try it out, and visiting local stores can help you find the right one for your needs.
