Things to Consider When Shopping for a Mattress

Shopping For a Mattress

There's a lot of terminology and lingo that are thrown around regarding mattresses, making it tough to sort through to find a matress that's going to help you wake up feeling refreshed in the morning. There's no "one mattress fits all" solution to sleep as we all have different bodies, sleep differently, and live different lifestyles. So here at Furniture and ApplianceMart, we decided to take it back to the basics to help you start your mattress shopping journey. We've put together a number of basic questions you should consider as you start looking for the best nights sleep.

Who will be sleeping on the mattress?

Who's Sleeping On the Mattress

Who's sleeping in the bed is the first thing you should think about when looking for a new mattress. This will impact everything from what size of mattress is right for you to what sort of firmness is right. Is the bed for your child, for you, or for you and a significant other?

What's your budget?

what's your mattress budget

Determining how much you are willing to spend on your new mattress can be a tricky process. While it's not as flashy or as fun of a purchase as buying a new car, your mattress is one of the most important investments you can make. How you sleep impacts everything from your job performance to your mood and energy with friends and family.

What size mattress is right for your needs?

Kids Bed

Mattress for a Child - If you're looking for a mattress for a child, you should look for a twin or full mattress. Twin mattresses are narrow and fit well in smaller bedrooms as well as tending to be less expensive than larger mattresses. Full mattresses offer a bit more space, allowing your child to grow into the bed.

Adult Bed

Mattress for Adults - For many adults, a Queen mattress is going to provide plenty of space to get comfortable. Queen mattresses are the most commonly available and are easier to move than larger mattresses. King mattresses offer extra width for you and your partner to have ample room while California King mattresses offer extra length for taller people.

How do you sleep?

Mattress For Side Sleeper

Side Sleeper - If you’re a side sleeper you will likely find your best night's sleep on a more plush mattress that allows your shoulders and hips to sink into the mattress a little bit. This give from the mattress allows your hip to drop down a bit and allows your spine to properly align.

Mattress For Back Sleeper

Back Sleeper - If you’re a back sleeper you will likely find your best night’s sleep on a more plush mattress that allows your hips to sink in a little bit and allow your spine to properly align. If a mattress is too firm you will likely feel uncomfortable points of pressure similar to the pain many of us feel after sitting in a car for a long drive.

Mattress For Stomach Sleeper

Stomach Sleeper - If you’re a stomach sleeper then your best night's sleep will likely come from a firmer mattress. Unlike back and side sleeper’s you’re already putting yourself in a position where your spine is aligned. This means that a mattress with more give will actually cause your spine to slump a bit which could lead to you waking up with back pain.

Mattress Tossing & Turning Sleeper

Tossing & Turning - Don't fit into any of the other categories because you spend your nights tossing and turning? Don't worry, there are still plenty of mattresses to help you get your best night's sleep! Because you may sleep on your back, side, and stomach all in the same night, you'll likely wake up feeling the most refreshed with a more balanced, medium, mattress that is somewhere between firm and plush.

Do you wake up with pain?

Mattress For Hip Pain

Hip Pain - Are you waking up each morning with hip pain? Hip pain is likely the result of a mattress that isn't providing your hips with proper support. This can be a result of anything from a mattress that is too soft or too firm or simply a worn out mattress. To help reduce your hip pain in the morning consider investing in a more plush mattress than can adjust to the contours of your body. Shop Plush Mattresses

Mattress For Back Pain

Back Pain - Most often caused by a worn out mattress that is no longer capable of providing you with the support you need. Like slumping at your desk or while watching tv, slumping will likely cause back pain; preventing you from getting a full night's sleep and contributing to back pain. As coils age they lose their ability to bounce back from weight being put on them night after night, resulting in a slumping mattress as they don’t have the same rigidity they once had, and need, in order to properly function.

This slumping doesn’t just apply to coil mattresses though, the same slumping issue is also true of foam mattresses. Slumping in foam mattresses is often easy to diagnose as the mattress will show visible signs of slumping while coil mattresses may not. To find the perfect mattress for your perfect night’s sleep come see our experts!

Mattress For Neck Pain

Neck Pain - Unlike back pain, neck pain is most commonly caused by your pillow, not your mattress. The pillow’s responsibility is to align your neck with your spine while you sleep. There are two key factors that go into why your pillow may have become a pain for your neck. The first is that the pillow has simply become worn out.

The other key factor to consider with your neck pain is did you select the right type of pillow for how you sleep? Depending on if you’re a side, back, or stomach sleeper the perfect pillow for you will change. Even the most expensive pillow can leave you waking up with pain in your neck if it doesn’t fit your sleep style. To find the perfect pillow for you, come see our experts or start by start shopping online.

How firm or plush of a mattress do you sleep best on?

If you don't deal with pain when you awake each morning, getting to sleep is likely your top priority. Everyone's body is unique, so your perfect ammount of firmness, softness, or balance between the two is likely to vary, so trying out a mattress for yourself in store is the best route to find a bed that is just right.

Plush Mattress

Plush - Do you sleep best on a softer, more plush, mattress? If so, we reccomend looking for any of the following types of mattress (listed from most plush to more balanced): Box Top, Super Pillow Top, Euro Top, Pillow Top, or Plush. Shopping for a plush mattress can be more challenging than shopping for firmer mattresses as once you lay down on a plush mattress, it may be easy to feel that it is perfectly comfortable but if you were to spend more time on the mattress you may find it doesn't provide the support you need. To avoid this issue, we reccomend spending ~10 minutes laying on the mattress in store to really get a good feel for what kind of comfort and support the mattress offers. Shop Plush Mattresses

Medium Mattress

Medium - If you sleep best on a more balanced mattress, we recommend seeking out a Plush, Cushion Firm, or even a Firm mattress. Both Plush and Firm mattresses can offer what you may consider a balanced feel, so we recommend keeping them on the table until you have a chance to lay on them for yourself. Like with any other type of mattress your best bet at ensuring a mattress will provide both the comfort and support you need each night, recommend spending ~10 minutes laying on the mattress in store. Shop Medium Mattresses

Firm Mattress

Firm - Does your best night's sleep come from a firmer mattress? We reccomend looking for a Cushion Firm, Firm, or Extra Firm mattress. How firm a mattress feels to you will be affected by factors ranging from personal preference to your body type so it is important to test out mattresses in store to ensure it will be up to your standards and provide proper comfort and support for your unique needs. Shop Firm Mattresses

Do you sleep warm or cool?

Warm Sleeper

Warm Sleeper - Do you wake up drenched in sweat or struggle to even fall asleep because you're too warm? Recent technologic advances in sleep technology may be able to provide a solution for you. New technology and materials offer features such as moisture wicking, enhanced ariflow, and decreased heat retention to help you sleep comfortably. Even products that previously were known to sleep warm, such as memory foam mattresses and pillows, have incorporated new technologies and materials to provide you with the best nights sleep.

Cool Sleeper

Cool Sleeper - Do you have a tendency to wake up in the morning or even the middle of the night freezing? While heated mattresses are not an option, you may want to consider an adjustable base for your mattress. Adjustable bases can help with circulation to help prevent your extremeties from getting too cold at night. You could also consider purchasing thicker blankets to help retain your body heat better as you sleep.

How to Test a Mattress In Store

Test
  • Select a pillow to test mattresses with that's designed to provide proper support for how you sleep
  • Pick a mattress to test out and try it out for ~10 minutes
  • Lay down how you would normally sleep in your own bed
  • Determine whether the level and support are in line with your wants and needs
  • Try out a number of other mattresses to compare the comfort and support of each
  • If you sleep with a significant other you should try the mattresses together to help ensure the best fit for both of you

Besides sleeping, how do you use your mattress?

For the best nights sleep possible, check out our Sleep Health and Habits Guide. To learn more about Adjustable Bases and their benefits, read our Adjustable Base Buying Guide.

TV in Bed

Watching TV - If you enjoy catching up on the day's news or unwinding with your favorite show before you go to bed, you should likely consider investing in an adjustable base bed. An adjustable base bed allows you to raise your head to prevent neck strain as you relax with your show.

Working From Home

Working - It's never been easier to work from the comfort of your own bed, with laptops, tablets, and even smartphones making it all to easy to check email, put together a quick report, or whatever else your job requires from bed, it's easy to overstrain your neck or back. Adding an adjustable base to your home can not only help to reduce strain but many adjustable bases come with built-in USB ports and/or power outlets to keep yoru devices charged while you power through some quick work.

Reading in Bed

Reading - From news on your phone to a good old paperback book, reading in bed is a good way to relax before hitting the hay for many. Finding that perfect angle that provides both comfort and support as you take in your pre-sleep reading material can be a challenge, no matter how many pillows you have to stack up behind your neck and back. Adjustable bases once again provide a solution to this age old problem, allowing you to find the perfect angle with the touch of a button.
