If you were to poll people about their satisfaction level with their sleep habits, the odds are that most would say there was room for improvement. Your mattress plays a key role in the quality of your sleep, yet many consumers are unsure how they should approach the task of selecting and purchasing one. Here are five tips to help you buy a new mattress that you will truly love.

Don’t Be Shy about Testing Out Your Options

Make the most of your opportunity to try our mattresses in the store. Sitting on the edge for a moment doesn’t cut it, either. Kick off your shoes, lay down and get into your normal sleeping position(s). If you find yourself feeling like you’d like to sink in a bit more, try a more conforming mattress like the Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Legacy. If you feel like you’re being buried in the mattress, you might prefer something firmer, like the Sealy Copper Cushion Firm.

Know Your Options

Do a bit of research before you head into the store, or make the most of the knowledgeable salespeople. Do your preferences lean towards a memory foam mattress like the Stearns and Foster Scarborough III? Or are you looking for a classic pillowtop, like the Sealy Crown Jewel Estate Pillow Top?

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Questions

A high-quality mattress store will have knowledgeable, experienced employees that can guide you in your selection process. At Mattress360, every one of our salespeople genuinely wants to help you find your perfect mattress match, and we have the knowledge to do just that. We can tell you about all our mattresses and their features, from the Tempur-Cloud Luxe (if you are looking for something very soft) to the Stearns and Foster Reflexion UP (if you want something that works with an adjustable base).

Make the Most of Store Specials

Ask about special pricing or package deals to make the most of your money. A mattress is a significant investment, and you want to ensure you maximize the value. At Mattress360, we offer a variety of excellent specials that can make you and your wallet very happy.

Understand the Importance of Your Investment

Many consumers are tempted to stick to a stringent budget when mattress shopping, but be sure to consider how important your mattress is. A good night’s sleep affects your health, mood and overall quality of life, and a bad mattress can really take a toll. Although a premium mattress like the Tempur-Pedic Flex Prima may be on the higher end of your budget, your health and happiness are worth it.

Don’t Forget the Bed Protectors and Sheets

Once you have gone through the process of selecting a mattress that is your perfect fit, your work isn’t entirely done. You’ve made this excellent investment, but how will you take care of it to ensure that it lasts? One of the most important steps you can take is to purchase a high-quality bed protector. Much like a mattress, bed protectors come with different features, each one a perfect fit for a particular person.

For the customer who wants excellent temperature regulation and antimicrobial protection, the Pure Care FRIO is an ideal fit. If you struggle with allergies, a hypoallergenic option like the Prime Smooth Mattress Protector can offer you a healthy night’s sleep. With the innovative features available in mattress protectors, you will not only be adding a necessary layer of coverage to your new mattress, but you will also be able to enjoy additional benefits as well.

Finally, don’t forget to top your new bed with the final important layer: a set of comfortable sheets. Like bed protectors, sheets now have advanced features that make them more than just something to cover your bed with. Enjoy incredibly soft, temperature-regulating TENCEL sheets, perfect for customers who want to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Or, if you’re interested in a breathable sheet that resists odors, try a set of woven bamboo sheets.

Putting together the elements of a perfect sleeping environment doesn’t have to be stressful. Above all, work with a knowledgeable company with helpful salespeople that you can trust.
