Buying the RIght Mattress

It is a little bit shocking to hear that a mattress will only last for five to seven years , which certainly does not seem like a long time. However, new memory foam mattresses and some other varieties might last a little longer. Most people have actually forgotten the last time they bought a mattress, which means it has been 15 years or more. However, sleeping on an old, worn out mattress is leaving many people with a poor night’s sleep and a bad back. You may find mattress is due to be changed out.

The first thing you will want to do is compare mattresses. The best way to do this is in the store. You will have the opportunity to test several varieties of mattresses at the same time in order to decide which is right for you. Additionally, some mattress producers offer a 30 day trial period in which you can find mattress that is right for you with little obligation.

While mattress comparison may seem like a lot of work, it is time well spent in the end. Everyone is different and so is every mattress. There are so many on the market to pick from. It is possible that a standard spring mattress is all you need, yet again you may be ready to try the new innovative memory foam.

Whatever you decide there are several features to consider when purchasing a mattress. You will first want to consider the right firmness and support. You want a mattress that is firm yet comfortable. Second, consider space. How many people will be sleeping on the mattress? Finally, consider durability. As mentioned the standard is 5 to 7 years, but some mattresses will last longer. It all depends on how much you want to spend now, and what you want to spend later.
