Best Practices for Online Mattress Shopping, Part 1

Online shopping has been a major outlet for consumers for many years, and it’s become even more needed during the recent COVID-19 outbreak that’s shut down many in-person gatherings. The ability to source and purchase goods and services online has become vital during this period in time, allowing many businesses to continue providing valuable services without risking disease spread.

At 2 Brothers Mattress, we’re proud to provide online mattress sales for all those who might require a new mattress during this period but do not want to risk in-person shopping at this time. We offer a huge variety of new mattresses, from innerspring and hybrid options to memory foam, latex and numerous others. In this two-part blog series, we’ll go over some important themes we recommend to clients who are purchasing an important item like a mattress online, including the details to keep in mind and some important tips to ensure you make the right choice.

Budget

First and foremost, you want to enter this process with a strong idea of what your budgetary range is. We say range because there’s no need to have only a single number in mind – mattresses vary pretty widely in terms of costs, and you never know if you might be able to find the ideal mattress for a lower number than you originally considered.

Don’t begin the process until you have this range identified. Some willingness to be flexible is good, but you should also stick within responsible financial ranges.

Mattress Size

Next, it’s time to spend just a minute or two considering the mattress size you require. Those who sleep next to a partner will generally want at least a queen mattress, if not a king, while there are many solo sleepers who prefer a lot of space and might be looking at these options as well.

Others, though, might prefer smaller options that come at a lower cost. Twin or full beds often do perfectly well for many individual sleepers.

Sleep Position

Now take the time to consider your common sleep position, which could be on your back, your side or your stomach. This will play a role in the mattress you end up choosing, as certain materials or styles might be best based on how you sleep.

Known Brands

Some might be concerned about quality levels when shopping online for a mattress, and one way to reduce these concerns is by shopping known mattress brands. At 2 Brothers Mattress, we deal with major brands like Serta, Tempur-Pedic and several others, ensuring you only receive high-quality mattresses from manufacturers with long, reputable histories.
