Tip & How-To about Furniture

Buying a new mattress can be a long and exhausting process.  Do not let it overwhelm you.  I am here to provide you with some great tips that will help you find the best mattress for you.  Before heading out to the shop ask yourself a few questions.  How long do you want the mattress to last?  What is your budget?  What type of support do you need?  Once you have a basic idea of what you need out of a mattress, you are ready to head out to the stores.  Here are a few tips that I truly believe are worth following: •         Talk to your doctor – although not a sleep expert, your doctor may be able to guide you towards a certain style/firmness of mattress that will best suit your body •         Check the warranty •         Test drive your mattress – when you go mattress shopping make sure to wear comfortable clothes (similar to pajamas) and spend 10-15 minutes lying on each mattress you sample the same way you would sleep at home (if you sleep on your stomach, then lye on your stomach in the store).  Do not let the salesperson rush you; finding the right mattress will take time. •         Shop at mattress stores – try to limit your search to mattress specific stores as opposed to department stores/online (DO NOT BUY A MATTRESS ONLINE) A mattress is a purchase that should not be taken lightly.  Although they can be quite expensive, whatever you do, DO NOT risk comfort for a cheaper mattress.
