How to Buy a New Mattress
Thinking of visiting a mattress store before purchasing a new mattress? You're not alone. Many people prefer to start their mattress purchase in store rather than online. It's a smart move; a mattress retailer may make claims about mattress comfort or durability, but until you test out a mattress for yourself, you won't know if it is going to suit your specific needs. Here are a few things to know before you go.
When to Buy a New Mattress
Mattresses typically come with estimates of their life expectancy, which can be anywhere from six to 15 years. These estimates should be regarded not as a prescription but as a guideline to give you a general idea of how long your mattress should last. In other words, you should replace your mattress when it is no longer comfortable, regardless of whether it falls short of the expected expiration date.
What Kind of Mattress to Consider
Not every mattress is going to be ideal for every type of sleeper. While you need to test out a mattress in the store before you buy it, being aware of your unique needs and personal preferences can help you to narrow down the selection when you get to the store. Given the effect your mattress can have on existing medical conditions, it might even be a good idea to get recommendations from your doctor about the type of mattress you should buy.
