When purchasing a new mattress it’s easy to become exhausted. Between the stress of choosing the perfect model and best prices, mattress shopping can become more of a hassle than some shoppers can handle.
The Expense of a Good Night’s Rest
Any new mattress that is made to withstand everyday life will be a mattress with a mid-range to high-range cost. When looking into these costly mattresses you should always remember to shop sales and not be intimated when negotiating with your salesperson. Your tactic of negotiating could vary per sales store. While many stores will be willing to throw in an extra piece or two of furniture, others would rather drop the price just a few dollars. Just be sure to use the correct tactic depending on the sales store and sales person.
After setting your cost range for your new mattress you next must decide which type of support you want the mattress to have. Most mattresses include one of the four common supports innerspring, foam, latex, and air-filled.
Know What You’re Laying Down On
Innerspring mattresses allow for that familiar bounce most people are used to, works perfect with your favourite bed sheets. If that’s what you’re after, you should choose an innerspring that you then you have the privilege of picking just how bouncy you need your mattress to be. Innerspring mattresses are measured in gauges and run from a 12 gauge to an 18 gauge. Twelve gauges are the thickest springs and the thickness descends as the gauge climbs to 18.
Maybe the innerspring mattress isn’t for you and you’d rather a more firm base you could always go with the memory foam mattresses. The thickness on the memory foam mattresses will run from 2 to 6 inches and will determine how far down within the mattress you could possibly sink as it sets memory to your body.
If you feel a memory foam is still not firm enough to fit you, then you could benefit from a latex mattress. The natural latex is very firm with a small amount of spring back and is antimicrobial material allowing it to be resistant to mold and dust mites. Although they are a little more pricey, latex mattresses have been claimed to last up to 20 years.
Sleep patterns change. If you’re one of the people who’s sleep patterns aren’t really patterns and you’re changing up what you like each night of the week you may decide to choose an air-filled vinyl or a rubber chamber mattress. Both types of these mattresses give a remote to the owner and the owner is allowed to control how much air is within the mattress each night. These mattresses have become very popular due to couples being allowed to each choose their air settings with the side-by-side chambers.
Always remember a mattress is a part of your everyday life. Some shoppers forget this important piece of information leaving themselves doomed when their semi new mattress begins tearing down sooner than they expected.
