Are you currently in the market for a new bed? If so then you have come to the right place. With a crazy amount of types, models, brands currently on the market, buying one spontaneously might be a bad idea. In this article, we will show you some tips you need to keep in mind when making this purchase. That way you won’t end up overpaying for a sub-par mattress. Here goes:
1/ The money
This factor plays an important role in determining which bed you will get. It usually goes like this: the more you pay, the better you will get. That is right for most of the time except when you are scammed by the marketing strategies. Set up an appropriate budget aside and cross-reference it with the beds at your local store and you will know what suits you.
2/ Personal reference
You already spend a whole lot of time and money into buying this, so you might as well buy the one that fits all your personal taste. Take the time and write out all your likes and dislikes, e.g. color, size, shape, pattern, etc. This will make laying your back on it a much more pleasant experience than on a regular mattress.
Your favorite sleep position is important as well. Right now, there are beds on the market that are specially designed for stomach sleepers, side sleepers and back sleepers. And then there’s a bed that support all three which is more expensive, of course. If you have the “green”, don’t hesitate to go for the last one. If not, a bed perfect for your most common sleep position should suffice.
3/ Bed types
There are three most popular bed types on the market. They are:
Spring coil: This is a conventional type of mattress. For those who are short on cash, this is the most suitable one.
Foam bed: A medium price one. This bed is perfect for people who are sensitive to pressure because you can switch position with ease. However, it can get a bit stuffy lying on this bed
Air mattress: this type is filled with air and one can increase or decrease the firmness by letting air in or out. When it wears out, you simply need to replace the old bladders.
Take into account your budget, your reference, your sleeping habit and you will know what to choose.
4/ How many people
If this bed is for you and only you, there’s no need to read this section. If it is for you and your partner, he or she may have a different liking of firmness. Therefore, you may need to acquire a mattress that is adjustable on both sides, suited to each individual. Or you can buy two small mattresses and put them together. Another way to do it if you are short on cash is to buy a regular one and rotate it around twice a year.
5/ Test it personally
Ordering online may save you time and effort, but that is just on the surface. If you like what they deliver to you, there’s nothing to worry about. If not, lots of things will come up. For example, the mattress is not what it seems in the picture, paying extra to have it returned, cannot exchange for a different one, etc. Hence, do research online but buy it in person.
