Things to look for when you are buying a mattress.
Because you spend more time in your bed than any other piece of furniture in your home it is important to determine the mattress that will suit your needs. To decide which mattress is right for you go to our store and take the “Sleep Test”. The way this will help you is to lie down on different mattresses while paying attention to these important features:
The days of a mattress having to be stiff-as-a-board to be good for you have come and passed. Recent studies have suggested that a medium-firm mattress is more likely to help your back pain than a firm mattress. Today’s top quality mattress/foundation ensembles combine luxurious new cushioning materials and extra-soft surface treatments to create a more plush, comfortable feel.
Having the right support is one of the most important things to maintain a healthy body. A good mattress and foundation will do two very important things for you: One is that it will gently support your body, the other is that it keeps your spine in alignment. You have to pay attention to how your shoulders, hips and lower back feel. If there isn’t enough support you can get back pain. Keep in mind that one manufacturer’s “firm” may be a little harder than another company’s “extra firm”. The best way to determine how hard a mattress is isn’t to look at the tag, lie down on it and see how you feel.
This is the quality of the materials used and how well they were put together and this determines how long a mattress and it’s foundation will give you the proper support and comfort. The best assurance of good performance over a good amount of years is to buy the highest quality sleep set that you can afford. The warranty won’t always tell you how long the product will last well because the warranty is in place to protect you from product defects not the loss of comfort and support over a period of time. Also keep in mind that while your sleep set might still be usable after many years it may not be giving you the good nights sleep that you used to get or could get.
