How To Buy A Mattress

You’re tossing and turning night after night, and suddenly it hits you. You need a new mattress. There’s no escaping the effects of a bad night of sleep, and that ten year old mattress your mother gave you just is not capable of giving you good rest anymore. The thought of having to buy a new mattress can be very daunting for many people. This article on how to buy a mattress is a great springboard for figuring out the basics.

The first step is the easiest: browse mattress websites online. By browsing online mattress reviews and manufacturers, you can get a good idea for all the new options that are available for buying a new mattress. It’s also a great way to come up with a good budget and figure out which mattresses are in your price range. The internet is also a great research tool for looking at other things such as money back guarantees and trial periods for certain brands of mattresses. Buying a mattress may not be so frightening if you knew that you could return an item that was less than satisfactory. how-to-buy-a-mattress

The next step after you have browsed for awhile and gotten a feel for all the latest and greatest in the mattress world is to settle on a level of firmness. If you have a partner, you will also have to consider their needs as well. A firm to medium firm mattress like the Simmons BeautySleep is often recommended for those with back problems, for instance. If your partner has a bad back, you may have to skip the comfort of a pillow top mattress. Those who weigh more are often advised to buy pillow tops as well for their comfort level.


After you have a good idea what you want, now is the time to measure where you plan to put the mattress once it’s purchased. Don’t stop there though! It’s no good making sure a mattress fits in a room if the mattress won’t fit through the doorway itself. This can especially be a problem for older homes with cramped staircases, narrow halls, and smaller door frames. Measure twice to make nice!

There are basically five different sizes of mattresses (including the California king). We’ll start with the smallest. Twin sized mattresses are made primarily for children. They measure 39 inches by 75 inches. The next size is the full sized mattress and it measures 54 inches by 75 inches. Many couples will find this size too small, although a single sleeper would have more than enough room. The next size is queen and it measures 60 inches by 80 inches. Most couples purchase this size mattress for price and comfort. The next size is the king which measures 76 inches by 80 inches. Then finally the California king at 72 inches by 84 inches. However, you should be aware that the California king is an uncommon mattress size and therefore only offered by certain brands.


The last step is quiet possibly the easiest; find some stores and start shopping! If dealing with salespeople makes you break out in a cold sweat, there is still the internet buying option as well. Even if you choose to buy on the internet, the in store experience might relieve some fears you have. Laying on that mattress in real life can be much more satisfying than eying a picture on a web page. However, online reviews are often as reassuring as the real life experience itself, especially if the manufacturer offers a money back guarantee on the mattress if you’re not completely satisfied with it.
