Mattress Buying Guide

How to buy the right mattress for you


Bed Sizes

1.) Ask yourself these questions:

  • Is your bed the wrong size?
  • Do you wake up multiple times with discomfort from your mattress?
  • Is there a problem with your current mattress?
  • Take some notes on your current bed good and the bad!

2.) What type of mattress are you looking for?

Our sleep recommendation is to first start with the comfort you would like your mattress – firm or plush and then look into what style fits your body the best! Each person is different, just like each foam and it is very important to get the correct one for you!

3.) Don’t be afraid of PRICE 

You will be spending (hopefully) 8 hours a night on your mattress, it is important to get something that will support your back and be comfortable! There is no worse way to start your day than with back pain.

4.) DO the 15-minute snooze test inside the store!

We have the beds on display in our sleep center for a reason! When looking for a bed, take 15 minutes and lay on the one you believe is for you. This will help ensure you don’t have to go back twice!

5.) Do I need just a mattress or the set?

We recommend you replace your box spring especially if you have an older mattress. If you decide to use your old box spring be sure to check your new bed’s warranty to ensure it remains valid. Remember, if your bedroom set utilizes a platform base you do not need a box spring.

6.) Protect your investment!

Don’t forget to get a mattress protector for your bedding, this ensures there will be no accidents on your mattress. A simple stain can void your manufactures warranty.
