Top 4 Mistakes to Avoid When Buying Mattresses

by Jeff M. Writer

The mattress you sleep on affects you in a variety of ways. It contributes to how healthy your spine is, whether or not you’ll spend the day feeling sore all around your body and even affects your level of productivity. As such, it’s important that you take your time to buy a mattress that’ll keep you comfortable all night long.

Sadly though, there are so many different labels and names in the industry that it is much too easy to get confused and end up with a model that’s a far cry from what one needs. To prevent that, here are five things you should keep at the back of your mind as you consider your options:

Don’t Let Price Be the Determinant

There’s nothing bad in trying to find a bargain, but it would be a mistake if you were to pick a low-end model just because it was cheap or on sale. Price and quality don’t always tally, but it’s also true that you often get just what you pay for.

Mattresses are supposed to last for many years before they need replacement, so the cost per day is likely to be much lower than you think. This is especially true if you compare it to a lower-quality mattress that you might have to replace multiple times over the same period.

Don’t Forget the Reviews

When purchasing something as important as a mattress, you’d be surprised how many people neglect to check out what other people are saying about specific models. While it is certainly true that it’s a decision that’ll ultimately boil down to personal preference, there’s no harm in seeing what expert reviewers recommend as the top 10 mattresses, as well as what other everyday users are saying about specific models.

One other area where reviews will come in handy is when you want to know the kind of customer experience to expect. Check for reviews that detail how good or bad the customer service of a company was, how knowledgeable their salespeople were and how much they charged for delivery.

Don’t be Bedazzled by Labels

Whether it’s the name of the brand or its proprietary label for how soft or firm its mattresses are, you definitely do not want to buy a mattress solely because of who made it or what it’s called.

Read enough reviews so you’ll understand exactly what a manufacturer means when it describes its mattress as plush, extra plush or any other such designation. Focus on the material from which the mattress is made instead because that will be a much bigger factor in your comfort than which factory it came from.

Understand How You Sleep

Your sleeping position (and that of anyone you’ll be sharing the bed with) is an important factor because it determines how the mattress puts pressure on your body. Different levels of softness are better for when you sleep on your back, stomach or side.

It’s even more important when you and your spouse have different positions since you’ll have to get a bed that’s suited to you both.
