Having trouble sleeping at night? Finding that you’re not well rested in the morning? If so, it might not be you — it could be your mattress. If it’s been a while since you replaced the mattress and box spring on your bed, then going to a furniture store to look at new mattresses could be just what you need.
Here are three essential mattress tips you can use when buying a new mattress, box spring, and even an entire bed.
1. Consider the needs of your back and neck. One of the main reasons that most people choose to buy a new mattress is because their old one is worn out, often causing discomfort while sleeping at night. If you’ve been experiencing neck and back pain, or you’re just not getting the quality of sleep you used to, it’s probably time for a new mattress. Be sure to look at mattresses that will provide support and comfort while you sleep.
2. Test mattresses at your local furniture store. Mattresses may seem a bit expensive, but they are an investment. Make sure that you test mattresses to find out which will be the most comfortable for you. You can also find out about different mattress types, including memory foam or pillow top. Overall, don’t pay too much attention to the price tag, especially when you’re considering your comfort above all else.
3. Look into a new bed frame, too. To complement your new mattress, why not look into a new bed frame, too? If you are choosing a bed frame, too, however, make sure you follow the first rule of furniture shopping and measure first. This will ensure that the bed you choose will adequately fit your bedroom, but that it won’t make the room too full, either.
