Buying a new mattress can be an exciting adventure, as well as an interesting journey into the unknown. Research shows that you’ll spend more time on your mattress than on any other piece of furniture that you own, so picking the right one is important! So whether it’s your first time buying a mattress, or your fifth, here are some rules to live by when searching for that perfect night of undisturbed sleep.
Create a budget
The price of a quality mattress can vary greatly, but regardless of price, any good mattress will last you approximately 10 years. It’s important to remember that no matter what kind of mattress is currently being advertised as the best on the market, if it’s out of your price range, then it’s not worth it. Not only that, but you should be purchasing the best mattress for you, not what’s best for everyone else. So set a budget, stick to it, and find the perfect bed for your sleep schedule and your wallet.
Measure your current bed frame
A great, new mattress means nothing if it doesn’t fit into the bed frame that you already have. For example, looking into adjustable bed options doesn’t make much sense if you know the mattress won’t fit into your bed frame. Unless you’re planning on buying a whole new bed frame, keeping to the measurements is key to bed comfort, as well as switching mattresses efficiently.
Support Your mattress
While all of your adjustable bed options allow you to change the support and firmness of the mattress, a typical mattress will not. It’s for this exact reason that reading up on all of the mattresses you look at is extremely important!
Mattress shopping can be a chore, but if you follow these three rules, you’ll be well on your way to getting the recommended seven to nine hours of undisturbed sleep every night!
