Check out our guide to help you find your perfect mattress.

Buying a new mattress can be a daunting process, as you want to ensure you are getting the best one possible that guarantees a quality night sleep. You should look at buying a new mattress as making an investment, as there is nothing more important than sleep. When our bodies and minds our well-rested, we are more productive, happier, and healthier. Continue reading for our guide on how to buy a new mattress.

When It’s Time To Buy a New Mattress

If you aren’t sure when it’s time to get rid of your old mattress, there are a few signs to look out for. If you wake up with aches or pains that seem to go away throughout the day, it’s likely that your mattress is to blame. If you are waking up throughout the night or find yourself tossing and turning to get comfortable, it is time for a replacement. Also, check the tag or your mattress to determine the age- if your mattress is more than eight years old, it’s time to start the mattress buying process.


Before you start shopping around, you need to have a checklist to help narrow down the search. Start with the size- does your current mattress feel cramped or do you find that your partner wakes you up throughout the night? If so, now is a good time to size up. For couples or those who share a bed, a Queen or King is recommended for a comfortable night sleep. If you sleep on your own, a full-size bed may be a perfect size. However, a twin or Queen may be better suited to your size and needs. If you are unsure, talk to a mattress professional at the store to find your perfect mattress size.


A budget is an important part of mattress shopping, as you want the best quality mattress at a price you can afford. As you may have guessed, high-quality mattresses will cost more money, but they will last much longer and offer more support than a cheap mattress. Remember that investing in a mattress is like investing in your health, as quality sleep helps to improve your mental and physical health.

Test Drive

Similar to buying a new car, you want to test-drive your mattress to ensure it is the best choice. Once you find a mattress that fits everything on your checklist, lay on the mattress in the showroom on your sides, front, and back for five minutes each. This may seem unnecessary at the time, but it is the best way to get a real feel for the mattress. After all, you’ll be sleeping on it for the next eight years- it should be perfect!
