New Mattress
10/20/2015

Buying a new mattress is tough... it's not one of those things that you can accomplish by reading a few reviews, asking your friends and pulling out your wallet. There are unique properties inherent to every mattress and, more importantly, there are subtleties and nuances to every person's situation and needs. You may be a light sleeper, have back issues or a partner that likes to flop around. Maybe you experience chronic neck pain or suffer from sleep apnea. Whatever your situation is, it's important to do your due diligence and find a mattress that meets your needs. In this post, we're going to give you five tips that will help you find the perfect mattress.

Scout your options

Shopping for a mattress isn't like shopping for shoes... you may not "know" your mattress when you see it. Be sure to keep an open mind and, more importantly, investigate all of the options available to you.

Shop at a mattress store

Rather than shopping at a department store, visit a specialized mattress store, like Mattress Mart. The sales team at a mattress store is better equipped to answer your questions, suggest options and help you find the mattress that you need.

Ask about comfort guarantees

At Mattress Mart, all of our mattresses are sold with a 120 day comfort guarantee. When your purchase is backed by a guarantee, you can be certain that you won't get stuck with a mattress that isn't perfect.

Ask your doctor

If you have a condition that causes sleep discomfort, talk to your doctor prior to researching mattresses. They may be able to direct you to certain models or features that will address the root of your discomfort.

Test a few mattresses

Don't jump the gun and buy the first mattress that you like... find a mattress that you love! It may take a little longer but, in the end, it's better to spend a few extra hours searching if it helps you avoid hundreds of uncomfortable hours.
