Shopping for a new mattress doesn’t sound like it would be stressful, but more often than not it is. For those who have never purchased a mattress in their lifetime, walking into a mattress store can be extremely overwhelming. Between having to determine what level of firmness you like to which mattress style is the best fit for you, there are a lot of big decisions that need to be made on the spot. 

In today’s blog post, we want to sit back and go over a few of the things that you should know before buying your first mattress. We hope that these tips help you breathe easy about the big purchase that you’re about to make. 

Focus on Your Needs

When you walk into a mattress store, the one thing that you need to remember is that you’re shopping for your own needs. There are so many different mattresses within a store, and some of them have been voted the best mattress by professionals. Aside from that, your family or partner may also be telling you about the experience they’ve had with their mattress. With that being said, you do want to remember that you’re shopping for yourself. Focus on your needs and find a mattress that caters to them.

Test the Mattress

One of the biggest mistakes made when purchasing a mattress is buying without trying. Of course you’re going to want to at least lay down and see if the mattress is comfortable, but you also want to make sure that you take advantage of any trial periods that the mattress company or store offers. If there’s a 90 day trial period, use it! What feels comfortable in the store may not transfer over to the quality of sleep you’re looking for. In those instances, you wind up with a really expensive purchase that you’re less than happy with.

Firmness Over Softness

People will often correlate mattresses as being soft, but that’s not necessarily the case. While mattresses should be soft to the touch and comfortable, you are going to want to make sure that you invest in a mattress that is on the firmer side. Even though soft mattresses feel like a cloud that you’re sinking into, this isn’t the optimal support level that your body needs. For that reason, we always suggest going with a firmer mattress that provides you with support in all the right places.
