How to Buy a Mattress: 1-2-3
Buying a mattress is one of the most major purchases you can make for you home. You will likely spend more time on your mattress than any other piece of furniture that you own. For this reason, we at Orbit Furniture want to insure that you buy the best mattress for your lifestyle.
1- Visit a mattress store to see what’s offered. If you haven’t purchased a mattress in a while, it’s good to see what options are available before going to a store.
Mattress brands are often coming out with new styles of mattresses including ones that offer adjustable firmness levels and temperatures. Decide how high-tech you want your mattress to be, as some of these may only be available at specialty stores or online.
Look up what special features may be offered by each mattress brand including a trial period. At Orbit Furniture we offer 100 days trial sleep Guarantee by Sierra Sleep. * inquire in store for details
2- Decide on a level of firmness. Although this is difficult to determine without first testing mattresses, a few physical factors can help direct your decision.
If you have back problems, consider a medium-firm to firm mattress choice. These are best for supporting your lower back and reducing back pain.
Pillow-top mattresses are best for people who aren’t too light, as they won’t have enough weight to suppress the top and the springs to a point that it makes a difference in comfort. Larger people typically find pillow-top mattresses more comfortable for this reason.
3- Measure the space you plan to put the bed. Nothing is worse than finding and purchasing your perfect mattress, just to realize you can’t fit it in your house. Check your space availability in your bedroom, and then decide on a size of mattress to fit. Be sure the mattress size you intend to purchase not only fits inside your bedroom, but also through all doors used to enter the room.
