Mattress is an indispensable creation of man that brings life to our health as well as our rooms. If you get that straight then you are going to wake up in good spirits early morning; if not then you will end up cursing your back and muscles for the pain that has hit your body.
Sleep is an essential facet that is not to be overlooked and has to be given importance just like having a healthy diet or even going for a workout. Currently people around the globe are suffering from different types of ailments . Most of them are caused due to stress and lack of rest. Sleep is the only activity that allows us to forget everything surrounding us right from what we like to what we hate the most. It even lends a hand to the body to mend its damaged parts before the clock ticks and tocks along with the rising sun. Our body needs rest and time to repair. So it is our duty to buy an ideal mattress that can provide a king size sleep.
For those who are on the look out to buy a mattress here are a few points that you should be aware of before jumping into the scene. If you carefully follow the tips below am sure you wouldn’t have to regret later.
Chose a perfect bed that suits your style and classiness
Your bed is going to eat up a larger fraction of your room. So wouldn’t it be good to get something modish and not so boring? Make sure that it has ample room for your mattress to fit in comfortably without slipping out. Most of the mattresses are of dissimilar standards based on the brand so compare and buy.
Check your room space
While going to buy a mattress make sure to check your room space. It is very important to calculate how much walking room will be on hand after your mattress takes its position. This point is very important because recently I ended up buying a double mattress that consumed most of my room space. I can barely walk on either side. My dressing table is also stuck on one side that I need to keep moving my bed to steal a look into my mirror and move it back to plot a course around. If your room is a tubular shaped one then I would suggest for a queen sized mattress. It is good lengthwise and gives pretty room on the either sides.
Compare between showrooms
There are number of showrooms that will be available at your locality as well as another alternative in the form of online stores. So the major concern is where to shop, so I would say go far and wide and look everything in detail. Note down the details along with the price, size and all comparisons. Such collected details will help you to sort out your doubts and make it easy to choose a mattress. Based on my experience online stores are pretty good. You will get to save some money as they are reasonably cheaper than local stores.
Include your partner in crime
If your aren’t the only one going to sleep in the mattress then make sure to include your partner in the whole process so that later you both don’t want to waste time quarreling over this subject. A few years back I bought a mattress as my old mattress was showing up old age signs like sagging. The new mattress was pretty good with a great visual appeal. But it wasn’t excellent enough to get into my husband’s good books. So to avoid such issues make sure you include your partner along with you while choosing a mattress.
Jump on the bed or try it out
This option is mostly available only when you go in person to the shop. Some online stores also provide the option of a trail run. In any case when you get to see the mattresses make sure to spend some time with it by relaxing on it. Check the edge support and just feel the comfort which it lends. You are investing your money for long term so go real slow and make a wise decision.
Materials used to build a mattress
There are many varieties of materials that are being used to build a mattress like organic latex, synthetic latex, memory foam, innerspring and hybrids. Mattresses that are made of purely natural stuffs might price higher than synthetic ones. If you want to enjoy the comforts of different materials then go for a hybrid variety. The different layers are fixed with varying materials pleated one over the other.
Ask questions rather than just listening
Generally it is a common tendency to go behind the looks rather than the comfort. So while you visit a showroom listen to the salesman’s talks patiently and then ask a set of questions before you take a decision. If your salesman is ready to negotiate the price then get in your head that the mattress is overpriced and he isn’t doing any favor by reducing the cost.
Consider the thickness of the mattress
Thickness of the mattress will matter a lot as it will directly have a direct impact from the body weight due to the pressure that is applied. If you are on the heavy side of a weighing machine then consider buying a mattress that is thicker so that it will provide ample support. For those who are on the lighter side consider buying a mattress that is not too thick. But it really doesn’t matter as such people won’t be exerting pressure on the mattress. My hubby weighs above 300 lbs and I am on the lighter side but we have chosen a 9” inch thick mattress so that he can sleep comfortably and I also find it real good.
Price does matter
Mattresses are a sensation nowadays with different varieties which makes a person really confused as to what to buy. Keep in mind that you want a mattress for comfort not to show off after all it is for your body and not to exhibit to others. A costly mattress may not perform well always nor will a cheap mattress underperform always so don’t run behind such follies. Choose the perfect mattress which you like to spend your nights in comfort. Even if the mattress prices more than your budget don’t hesitate as it will be a good investment and for a long term.
Hidden costs and delivery charges
Ask everything from A to Z about how much you need to invest. Some mattress sellers charge extra quoting delivery and labor charges so makes sure to ask everything before paying the money. Also make sure when you want your mattress to be delivered as some sellers do not make out deliveries during specific days of a week. Online stores make handling and delivery very easy as you don’t have to worry much regarding it once you make a payment. Mostly shipping costs will be included in the price of the mattress.
What about warranty?
Warranty is very important while choosing a mattress as longer the warranty the more you are on the safer side. Most of the brands offer good warranty periods and even online stores offer such options with great ease. There are customer care systems where you can actually call for your queries and complaints so that they can take necessary actions.
Buy a mattress protector cover
Once you have done choosing your ideal mattress the next right thing you need to do is buy a mattress protector right away. This will help you to protect your costly mattress from a wear and tear, spilling fluids or eatables, bed bugs and even naughty kids.
Do you have back pain?
Again this is a very important question that you have to ask yourself before buying a mattress. If you have back pain issues or other medical conditions then buy a mattress after consulting with your chiropractor. Generally those who suffer from back pain can buy a medium firm mattress. It can easily support the curvature of the spine. There are different kind of mattresses that are available for various medical conditions. But not do get carried away too much by such advertisements.
Bid farewell to your old mattress
Be a good responsible citizen and donate it if it is good condition. Or else send it for recycling so that you can save the environment by not dumping on the landfills. My old mattress was sagging too much. I sent it to the recycling station where it was conked out and put to good use.
I think the best way to get a night full of peaceful sleep is to work hard the whole day. Then lie down on a comfortable mattress, that can support the body. A mattress is as important as a healthy diet because both can have a great impact on one’s life. Give your worries to god and your body to the mattress and go to sleep.
