Mattresses are designed using different technologies, keeping in mind better support and comfort to their customers.
The reason to get a new mattress could be anything, a new home, a newborn, changing bed, worn out mattress, kids outgrowing the old mattress or simply upgrading the mattress. Whatever the reason maybe, considering the availability of so many mattresses and brands, one certainly needs to be smarter in making purchase decisions.
So I have listed below some very useful tips to consider before making that decision.
1. Check warranty
Know what the manufacturer has to offer before making a purchase. Warranties help a great deal in coming to a conclusion.
2. Read reviews
No one can give better insight about the mattress than those who have already purchased and experienced it. Pay attention to what they have to say and it would be a lot easier to go by the percentage of good or poor rating.
3. Firmer might not be the right one for you
Your spine and other parts of your body need firmness just enough to support them. Too firm can cause discomfort and affect pressure points and prevent your spine from maintaining its natural curve while you’re asleep.
4. Too soft might not be your perfect fit either.
This will put more weight and pressure in the middle portion of the spine, which can cause poor posture and lead to back pain.
5. Decide on a budget and stick to it
There are all sorts of prices available in the mattress market world today, all you got to do is see what works best for your pockets and choose the best from the available options. Remember, this is an investment you make to dispose off all the stress built in your body from the activities carried out throughout the day, for the next few years. Obviously, long term benefits need to be considered here before deciding your budget. Plan your budget generously but at the same time, there is really no need to go overboard and exhaust your funds just because there are more options available beyond your budget.
Ultimately, the key is to distinguish between our want and our need.
6. Consider all options
Keep your needs on one side of the scale and your options on the other. Do your little research on them from more than one source, this would help you decide with options like whether to buy online or offline, how many brands offer what I need, what are their prices, what fits my budget, offers and discounts etc. I’m sure the scale will have a balance while you scan the options and voila, you’ll have a decision.
7. Brands have value
Certainly, some brands have gained a lot of respect and value for their products and services amongst their customers, some over the years and some in short span of time (Some really good top rated brands in India available here), they have built trust with their customers. It all reflects in the customer satisfaction and brand loyalty results, extracted from the market surveys, ratings and reviews. Hence, brand’s value too helps you choose.
8. Trial period and returns policy
Be a smart buyer, always know your rights with respect to your purchase before buying any product. Find out the trial period and returns policy set by the manufacturer. There could be a chance of ending up with a defective or damaged piece. Being well informed about the returns policy could be of great help in such scenarios.
9. Test it
There are stores which allow you to lie down on a mattress you choose and test it before you make a decision.
10. Right size
Always look for what fits your bed frame, bed space and bedroom. It would be a good time to re-organize your space in a more better way as per your needs.
We do pay a price to own a good mattress but a good mood is priceless.
So.. Take a siesta.! 😉
