Get the best possible night’s sleep with these handy tips
Have you ever been awakened in the middle of the night by a spring poking into your back from the depths of the mattress? If this sounds familiar, it’s a sure sign that your sleeping space needs an upgrade. Before you head out to the mattress store, consider these tips for finding the best possible replacement.
Know What’s Comfortable for You
When considering a new mattress, think about all the beds you’ve slept in. Which ones were the most comfortable and why? This will give you a guideline to determine how firm or soft of a mattress to look for. It might even be a good idea to find out the brands of the mattresses you have the fondest memories of so you can hone in on these when you’re shopping.
Pick a Price Range
A new mattress is a long-term investment in your health. Think about it: When you don’t sleep well, you don’t feel well. The mattress you buy today should last for a good eight to 10 years. With that in mind, decide how much you’re willing to spend and how that amount works out when spread over the life of the mattress.
Research the Options
With all the brands and types of mattresses out there, the only way to know what you’re looking for is to do a little research before going shopping. Check out options on the Internet and make sure you understand the different types of spring systems and mattress tops.
Don’t forget to look for specific sales cycles as well. Mattress stores tend to have drastic price cuts at particular times of year. Catching one of these deals could literally save you hundreds of dollars between discounts and free delivery.
Test Every Possibility
Once you’ve found a few mattresses that you like, spend a good 15 minutes testing each one out. Lie down on it in the positions that you normally sleep in and see how it feels. You should be supported fully at every angle. If you share a bed with someone, bring them along as well to make sure that you both feel comfortable with your potential choices.
