How To Find A Mattress You'Ll Be Happy With For Years

Posted on: 22 September 2020

Buying a mattress is not something you should take lightly. A good, high-quality mattress can easily reach into four figures, and that means it's a significant investment that you'll want to last for many years. With that said, here are some tips to keep in mind in order to ensure that you get a high-quality mattress that you can rest well on now and in the future.

Figure Out the Right Size First

When purchasing a new mattress, your first consideration should be to figure out just how big or small you want your new bed to be. Do you simply want to replace your current mattress with one of the same size and re-use your existing box spring and frame? If so, then you already have your answer.

But if you are willing to also invest in a new frame and box spring, this could be an opportunity to either downsize or upsize your bedroom experience. If you've always felt a bit cramped, maybe it's time to go from a queen to a king. If you've always felt like your king bed is taking up all the space in your bedroom, going back down to a queen can give you more room to walk around and be comfortable.

Firm From One Brand Might Not Be the Same From Another Brand

Mattresses are often rated as being different levels of soft or firm. The problem though is that the mattress industry as a whole doesn't follow any specific guide across the board when coming up with these ratings. Every brand has their own scale for what qualifies as firm or extra firm, in other words. So if you test drive one "firm" bed from one brand, don't assume that any other "firm" bed from another brand is going to feel the same.

Whenever Possible, Take a Test Drive

Because of the differences in how different brands rate the firmness of their mattresses, it really is a good idea to take a test drive in a local mattress store if you can. It's true that the coronavirus has made in-store shopping a little bit different, but some brick and mortar mattress stores are still open for business. Mattress store owners know that the "test drive" is an important part of the buying experience and they are all taking steps to ensure a safe in-store experience during the pandemic.

For best results, contact a local mattress store today and go in to check out what's available. 


A Grownup Chair

When I was a little girl, my grandparents surprised me with a small wooden rocking chair. This adorable petite chair was painted pristine white. At night, I would sit in my rocking chair and read picture filled books while the adults in the family sat in their own comfortable chairs. Having a piece of furniture that perfectly accommodated my small short body made me feel like an adult. If your child struggles to climb onto the adult furniture in your home, consider purchasing him or her a child size chair. You might be amazed at how much your little one would cherish his or her own piece of furniture. On this blog, you will learn how to shop for the perfect chair for your child.
