Getting enough sleep is important and in a survey, nine out of 10 respondents said their mattress has an effect on their rest. We love our beds so much that most of us would pay thousands of dollars just to buy the right mattress. But there are so many different types of mattresses and there are also varying comfort levels. These choices alone can make our heads spin. But don’t just settle for the first mattress you see. It helps if you visit several mattress stores, so you can identify which model is best for you.
Before you make a purchase, here are the three traits of a mattress store you should look for:
1. Guarantee of Comfort
Don’t be surprised if the mattress you tried at the store is comfortable, but when you started using it at home, it’s not at all. This happens to a lot of buyers, mainly because the mattresses at the stores have been tested by other people, making them right for your level of firmness. There may be other reasons, but it is therefore important the store or retailer offers comfort guarantee. What this means is that there should be a trial period for you to assess the comfort level of the product. This guarantee comes with an agreement, so be sure you understand it along with the return policy.
2. Price Match
Mattresses aren’t cheap and with price matching, you can reduce the amount of time you spend in finding the mattress you want. You can just check online or check with other retailers after seeing the mattress of your choice. You can make a phone call when you see the best price. The retailer will match the price for you, saving you time and money.
3. Delivery Service
Aside from being costly, mattresses are heavy. You can’t just move them from one place to another, especially if you’re also buying a frame or box spring. Some retailers offer delivery and this service is definitely useful. Additionally, you should ask your retailer about their haul-away service. Chances are you have an old mattress and the retailer might be willing to help you get rid of it.
There are so many other things to check, including:
- Warranties, such as for sagging and other problems
- Unique features, such as motion isolation, cooling, and body contouring
The three mentioned qualities above can help you choose where to buy a new mattress. Add the other considerations into your list, along with your preferences and special needs, and you will definitely find the best mattress for your bed.
