Choose the Right Mattress for a Good Nights Sleep


A good mattress should provide you with optimal support and comfort to help ensure you are ready to start the new day. I recently bought a new mattress and I don’t know why I waited so long. It’s unbelievable what a good night sleep will do for you. Following are some key tips on choosing the right mattress for you.


Shop at a store that you trust. If you’re unsure of where to start, ask family and friends for suggestions.

Talk to salespeople who know the products. If you don’t get the assistance that you want, go elsewhere.

Don’t be strange bedfellows. If the beds for two, make sure your partner goes with you.

Wear comfortable clothes and be ready to lay down.

Assess for comfort, support, durability, and space.

Plan on buying a complete set. Placing a new mattress on an old foundation will impede the performance and reduce its useful life.


Shop for the best value, not the lowest price. Quality is going to serve you the best in the long term.

Compare services when purchasing. How much for delivery? Will they remove your old mattress? Do they offer financing?

Remember, we spend almost one third of our life in bed, take care of yourself and buy good quality.

Also remember you need to take care of your investment.

Be sure to not remove the attached tags, as they contain important care information.

Don’t allow the kids (or grown-ups) to jump on the bed.

Make sure that you keep a washable protector on the bed.

Don’t use the side handles to lift, these are to assist with positioning only.

Regularly rotate and turn. This should be done every few weeks after purchase, and then every few months after that. Some manufacturers recommend not rotating a sleep set, be sure to check for this.
