02 Mar Questions to Ask When Buying a Mattress
Whether you’re buying a mattress for yourself or a child, it’s a significant investment. As such, like any other big purchase, you should be taking the time to do some research on the sorts of mattresses that are out there.
At 2 Brothers Mattress, we have a wide range of mattress options for you to look into. What are some of the primary questions you should be asking during your search? Let’s take a look.
How Do You Sleep?
Consider this question for anyone who will be sleeping on the mattress, including a partner if you sleep with one. Do you sleep on your back, side or stomach, first of all?
Back and stomach sleepers tend to require a firmer feel – pillow and euro tops are out. Side sleepers, on the other hand, need softer mattress options, so they likely don’t need extra firm or luxury firm options. For couples who sleep differently, memory foam is a great option to look into.
What’s Your Budget?
For obvious reasons, this is another big concern. A mattress is a big purchase that will impact your life for years into the future, so don’t cheap out on it. At the same time, it’s fine to have a basic price threshold in your head and to communicate this with your salesperson to find the best option available.
Do You Have Pain Issues?
Certain mattresses offer additional back support and may be best for those with pain issues in the back or other areas. Memory foam and latex, in particular, are great for people with back pain or arthritis.
How Long Do You Want the Bed to Last?
Some people buy a mattress fully intending to keep it for a decade or longer, while others expect to be getting a new one within a few years. This will impact the quality and price you go for – don’t expect a $200 mattress to last for 15 years, for instance.
Do You Sleep Hot or Cold?
For those who sleep warmer, memory foam and other soft mattress options are generally the way to go. Colder sleepers may enjoy firmer beds.
