How to Pick the Best Mattress

Sep 2, 2008
Every perfect mattress for each person will be different because each person's perception of comfort is different. What could seem like the most comfortable mattress in the world to one person could be too hard to too soft to another person. Because the comfort of the mattress is such a personal decision, it is very important that the person that picks out the mattress is also the person that will be using the mattress on a regular basis, because allowing someone to pick out a mattress will most likely result in a mattress that is not comfortable to sleep on.

The comfort of the mattress is very important when choosing a mattress because the comfort of the mattress will determine how well you sleep on the mattress at night. If the mattress is uncomfortable, then you will spend the entire night tossing and turning searching for a comfortable place on the mattress and will awaken feeling tired and uncomfortable. A comfortable mattress can ease you into a deeper sleep so that you will wake each morning refreshed and ready to face the day.

One of the first things that you will need to consider when choosing a new mattress is what price range will fit your budget. Mattresses can run the range of close to a $100 for a low quality mattress to over $5,000 for a high quality mattress set. Most retail stores will have a wide range of different mattresses to choose from so to limit the amount of time you will spend trying out mattresses that you really do not like, it is best to determine your price range before shopping for a mattress and stick to that price range while shopping in the store.

There are several different types of mattresses that are available to choose from and each of these mattress types will have several representatives in each price range. Innerspring mattresses are the type of mattress most often chosen by individuals looking for a new mattress but there are also quality mattresses made out of foam, down, or natural materials that may be considered as well. Each of these mattress types provides a different sleep experience so it may be best to try out one of each to see which type you like the best.

It is very important to test out the mattress in the store for comfort before committing to purchasing the mattress. The best way to try out the mattress is to lie on the mattress for a period of at least fifteen minutes and note any points where it feels like you are not touching the mattress or where you believe that you are sinking into the mattress too far. After a period of fifteen minutes, you should be able to tell if the mattress is comfortable enough for you to sleep on through the night because if you become uncomfortable within that time period, it is a safe bet that you would be uncomfortable sleeping on the mattress for the entire night.
