3 Things to Know When Buying a New Mattress

Buying a New Mattress the Right Way

From the onset, buying a new mattress may seem a little overwhelming. But with the right resources, it doesn’t have to be. Arm yourself with a few basics to help you with the buying process. To begin, here are some important factors to consider:

  • Your sleep needs and preferences
  • Mattress types
  • Discount and financing options

Your Sleep Needs and Preferences

Your sleep needs and preferences may consist of 3 key variables:

  • Sleep patterns – sleep positions, typical bed and wake times
  • Health issues – stress, anxiety, allergies, sleep apnea, shift work disorder, aches, pains, diet or circulatory problems that may disrupt your sleep
  • Sleep environment – comfort, cleanliness, windows/natural light, bedroom clutter or distractions (noise, electronics, exercise equipment, desk), temperature, lighting.

When shopping for a new mattress, take the time to consider all of your sleep needs while you are rest-testing mattresses you are interested in.

Mattress types

The most common mattress types include innerspring, memory foam, latex and hybrids.

Innerspring Mattresses

The innerspring mattress, typically sold with a box spring, features a coil-system core with a strong border wire and/or foam encasement topped with upholstery layers.

Foam Mattresses

There are 3 different types of foam:

  • Memory foam mattress – enables superior body conformance, which means better motion isolation and reduced pressure points.
  • Polyurethane foam – provides core support and will not conform to your body like memory foam does.
  • Gel-infused memory foam – helps dissipate the heat from the memory foam mattress.

The Latex Mattress

Made by processing naturally existing rubber, latex mattresses offer a naturally supportive, breathable and more eco-friendly core. There are 2 types of latex mattresses:

  • Natural latex provides optimal elasticity, softness and biodegradability, but is more expensive and less common.
  • Synthetic latex – More common, synthetic latex or blended latex combines natural latex for elasticity and synthetic latex

Hybrid Mattresses

A hybrid mattress combines materials to offer more benefits. One hybrid may have a core made from individually wrapped coils with a comfort layer made from foam or cool gel foam. Yet another hybrid may contain a latex core with memory foam as the comfort layer.

Discounts and Financing Options

Every store usually has at least one coupon that will significantly lower the price of your mattress. First, always look online for the latest deals. And when you are at the store, ask your sleep associate if they currently have any discounts or coupons.

Also ask about financing options if you are not able to pay out of pocket. Most stores have multiple financing options available.

When mattress shopping, the key is to find the one that works best with your sleep needs and preferences. The sleep associates at Cloud9 in Bentonville, AR are happy to show you each of these mattress types while they walk you through the process of buying a new mattress.
