Buying a new mattress is similar to buying a new car. You’ll want to check out all of its features, find out how long it’s expected to last, and perhaps read reviews from other buyers. Even if you do a little research before heading out to the mattress store, you should come prepared with your questions.
No one knows mattresses better than the sleep specialists at Mattress World Northwest. Here are 5 questions you may want to consider asking when you stop by one of our Portland-area mattress showrooms for a visit:
If you have specific health concerns, the mattress you choose could make a considerable difference in your well-being. The perfect bed will cradle you in comfort regardless of whether you have back pain, pregnancy-related pain, poor circulation, or GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). At a mattress showroom, a knowledgeable representative can help you find the right bed for your needs.
This is always a smart question to ask, since modern mattresses may be made of memory foam, latex, gel foam, or steel coils. Some mattresses are hybrids to bring sleepers the best of both worlds. The right type of mattress for you depends on your health needs and sleeping style. A sleep specialist can help you figure out your ideal mattress composition.
For couples, motion transfer is often a major factor when purchasing a new mattress, especially if one or both of you tend to move around a lot during the night. A bed that minimizes motion transfer allows both sleepers to avoid inconvenient nighttime awakenings. Memory foam and latex mattresses are very effective at preventing one sleeper’s nighttime movements from bothering the other sleeper.
If you’re happy with your current bed size, then there’s probably no reason to switch—unless of course, you’re moving to a new home or if you’re feeling a bit cramped in bed. Single adult sleepers often prefer full size mattresses, but these are a little small for couples. If you have a bedmate, consider upgrading to a queen from a full, or to a king from a queen.
One of the stressful aspects of buying a new mattress is the possibility that it won’t feel quite the same after you’ve slept on it for a while. That’s why you should go to a store that has a comfort guarantee—like Mattress World Northwest. Sleep on your new bed for at least 31 nights—and up to 90—and we guarantee a hassle-free, one-time comfort exchange.
Our sleep centers in the Portland area specialize in providing premier mattress brands at affordable prices. Plus, with free delivery and special financing offers available, there’s really no reason why you should have to suffer more sleepless nights on your old, lumpy mattress.
