Like many major purchases in the home, a mattress isn’t meant to last forever. The ideal length of time that your mattress is good for is eight years. Do you know how old your mattress is? If you have a sore back, then it might be time to replace that old, saggy mattress. If you’re ready to replace your mattress, then consider these helpful buying tips to make sure that your next night of sleep is a great one.
Set A Budget
As with all things in life, your mattress purchase will require you to set a budget. If you haven’t bought a mattress in eight years, then you might be shocked at how much they cost. At Renditions Furniture we make sure you get the best mattress for the budget you have set. While some consumers have ventured online to get a deal on a mattress, we highly recommend purchasing a mattress in a store so that you can be sure to try a variety out that fit within your budget.
Pick Your Type
Memory Foam? Sleep Number? Firm? Plus? There is a lot going on in the world of mattresses these days. It won’t take you long to become a mattress expert. Here’s an easy tip: Memory foam or Tempur-Pedic is a mattress that will mold to the shape of your body. It’s as close as you can get to sleeping on a waterbed without actually sleeping on a waterbed. A sleep number bed lets you make adjustments in the firmness by using inflatable air pressure chambers. These are the beds that let you recline up and could even have separate settings for the person you’re sharing that bed with.
Go From High End to Low End
Now that you’ve set your budget, and have done your homework, you should be armed with some good information. Now it’s time to head out to the stores and take a few mattresses for a test drive. Try the most expensive mattress in the store first. This is usually the high end of sleep luxury. You might spend five minutes on this mattress and want to blow your entire budget. However, use this to set the bar. Start working your way down the mattress ladder until you land on the perfect pick for your comfort AND your budget. It’s out there! The experts at Renditions Furniture will help you find it.
Think About Sleeping Comfortably
As you try out the mattresses, consider what you’ll wear to bed. It won’t be bulky sweaters and jackets. This doesn’t mean you can wear your pajamas to the mattress store (though we are sure some have tried). However, you want to try out the mattress with the least amount of layers between you and that potential comfort.
