The Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Mattress In-Store

The Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Mattress In-Store

Buying a mattress is a lot like choosing a paint colour. When you’re in the hardware store, it’s hard to know what the colour on the little paint chip will look like on your walls until it’s on them. With a mattress, it’s hard to know if you’ll enjoy the bed after testing it for a few minutes in the store.

Make sure you’re testing it the right way, so you and your sleep partner pick the right mattress. Here’s the ultimate guide to choosing a mattress in-store:

 Figure Out What’s Comfortable for You

Before you come in, analyze your sleep positions. Do you typically sleep on your back, side, or stomach? Do you move around a lot when you sleep? Do you snore?

Believe it or not, your answers to these questions affect the type of mattress you buy. Organic latex and foam mattresses tend to offer more support, making them perfect for back and stomach sleepers, while inner spring mattresses have the softness side sleepers often enjoy.

Spend Time Testing Mattresses In-Store

Oftentimes, shoppers hesitate to test out mattresses for fear that other shoppers will stare. But, everyone in the store will be doing the same thing as you! The only way to test a mattress is to physically lay down on it.

So, when you’re in the store, lay down on the mattress. In fact, lay down for up to 10-minutes on the bed to really get a good sense of how your body feels laying on it.

Ask yourself questions as you lay on the bed: Do I feel any pressure points. Am I comfortable?

You should also wiggle and test various sleeping positions to ensure that the bed is comfortable for you in every position.

Although testing out a bed for 10-minutes isn’t going to give you the most accurate indication of how you’re going to sleep every night for up to 10 years, it’s a great place to start!

Ask Questions About the Types of Mattresses

Your sleep style is the best indicator of what kind of bed you should choose to ensure the best sleep quality possible. But, there are other factors that go into choosing a mattress such as price, quality, and longevity.

We sell three types of mattresses at Majestic Mattress—coil spring, organic latex, and standard foam. Ask one of our knowledgeable staff to learn more about which one is best for you.

 Know You Have Time to Decide

We understand that it’s difficult to know whether you’ll like a mattress or not after having laid on it for 10-minutes. So, we suggest you take it home and try it out. We have a 7-day sleep guarantee, which means you can sleep on your mattress for up to a week before deciding if it’s the one for you.
