Signs that You May Need a New Mattress & Foundation (boxspring):
*In general, a mattress set that has been in use for seven years is no longer providing you with the best comfort and support
and should be replaced. Keep in mind that everyone’s body changes over time, and the need for comfort and support only
increases with age. That’s why it’s a good idea to compare the mattress and foundation you are sleeping on now to newer
models every few years.
Consider Mattress Warranties upfront and understand your investment.
Remember warranties are voided if your mattress gets stained so spend a little extra money on a mattress protector to protect your
investment. We carry Malouf mattress protectors in several different styles to both suit your needs and your budget.
Determine your budget and needs.
Are you waking up with aches? Are you not sleeping well? Chances are you need a new mattress. Before you research your options,
determine your budget and personal needs.
Do your homework before you begin shopping.
Research your options before you buy, choosing the mattress size and mattress type that will suit your individual needs.
Choose the right type of store.
Start with a store you trust. Furniture stores, department stores and sleep specialty shops all sell mattresses. Look for a retailer that
provides you with the right information and attention. If you don’t know where to shop, ask friends and family for their suggestions.
Utilize the Retail Sales Associates.
Work with knowledgeable salespeople who can guide you through your bedding choices. Ask questions and look for detailed explanations
Test-drive your new mattress.
Once in the store, follow the S.L.E.E.P. test. Remove your shoes and lie down on several different models in various positions. (It’s best
to go mattress-shopping in comfortable pants so you can move around.) During your test drive, be sure to spend extra time in the
position you usually sleep in. It can take up to 15 minutes to relax enough to feel the true support of a mattress, so don’t rush it. The
more time you take in a store, the less likely you’ll have buyer’s remorse later on.
Mattress Buying Guide
Buying too small of a mattress is one of the biggest mistakes that new bed buyers make. Below are some recommendations that buyers should take into consideration when purchasing a new mattress.
Twin mattresses - Are the smallest possible mattress size and may be too short for some adults, especially men.
Twin XL mattresses - The XL offers several inches in length but remains around 38 inches in width. Most dormitories have Twin XL mattresses.
Full size mattresses - are only enough space for a single sleeper and only if the person is under 5 feet 5 inches tall.
Queen mattresses - Queen size is a good choice for guest rooms or smaller master bedrooms.
King mattresses - are about 18 wider than a queen mattress. Two twin extra long mattresses pushed together make a king size mattress which may be a good alternative if each of you like a different feel to your mattress.
California King mattresses - Are 4 inches narrower and 4 inches longer than a regular King size mattress.
