31 Jul Tips for Shopping For Your Next Mattress Online
The average person spends nearly a third of their life sleeping – or attempting to sleep. Doesn’t it make sense to spend that time laying on a comfortable, supportive, high-quality mattress?
We can all agree that getting a good night’s rest can have a huge impact on the energy level and mood for the next day, and achieving that amazing night of sleep can be as simple as investing in a new mattress. To get the very best sleep, it is important to choose the best mattress to suit your needs — considering quality, support and comfort first and foremost. And nowadays, you can skip the dizzying variety of mattress showrooms with the never-ending selections of mattresses, foundations and bases. Buying your mattress can be as simple as finding our ideal mattress online and having it shipped right to your door. Check out our tips for shopping for your next mattress online below.
Decide On Your Budget
Before you begin shopping around online for your mattress, you should first decide how much you want to spend. Buying a mattress in a typical showroom can set you back thousands – between the mattress, foundation, delivery and set up fees, old mattress removal and accessories, the cost can be overwhelming. Set a budget based on your needs – mattress size, expected use (a California King for your master bedroom, a twin for your child’s room, a twin XL for your college student or maybe a queen for your furnished basement?), and mattress type. Remember that your new mattress will be an investment that can help improve your overall health and should last around 7 years. As with anything else, mattress quality can vary and according to a 2007 Consumer Report, most people found that cheaper mattresses tended to be less durable. Find your happy medium and keep your budget in mind throughout your online mattress shopping process.
Choose What Kind of Mattress You Want
There are a variety of mattress types online, such as the micro coil mattress, memory foam, hybrid, latex and more. Do your research to determine which kind of mattress will best suit both you and your sleeping partner’s preferences and physical needs. Think of words and phrases that would describe your ideal mattress – like scientifically engineered, comfortable, premium quality, supportive, durable, firm, soft, etc. Use these words to help point you in the direction of the mattress that will give you a superior night of sleep.
Read the Reviews
When it comes to a good night’s sleep, mattress support, comfort and quality all stand out as crucial requirements for your next mattress. Take advantage of the perks of online shopping and read the reviews for the mattress you’re considering. Find out what those who have slept on the mattress themselves think and keep any negative feedback in mind.
Check out Return Policies and Warranties
Shopping online is so convenient and relaxed, and your online mattress purchase should be as well. If for whatever reason you’re not happy with your purchase, will the seller make it nearly impossible for you to return your mattress and get your money back? Or is there a reasonable return policy and warranty on your investment in place? Possibly even a trial period? Be sure you read all the details completely before purchasing anything. If you are stuck between two different mattresses, this factor can make all the difference. Once you find the right fit for you, the rest of the shopping experience should be smooth and easy. Ordering your mattress, delivery, set up and customer service should be a breeze – and before you can count those sheep, you’ll be well on your way to dreamland.
