The Team at Forty Winks has five great tips for next time you decide to buy a new mattress for your bed.
1. Take your partner
If buying a bed that will sleep two people, both of you should make the decision.
2. Lie on the bed for at least 10 minutes
Ask to try a firm, a plush, and a pillow top in the same brand quality and price point. When you find the most comfortable type of mattress, ask to see more of that kind.
3. Ensure the bed or mattress is durable
Ask about a guarantee on your choice of bed – Good bed manufacturers will back up their product with a 5 or 10 year guarantee.
4. Protect your investment
Always get some kind of waterproof mattress protector. Stains will void your warranty.
5. Be comfortable
The staff at a specialty store usually have more training on the subject of sleep. Try to find a store that carries several major brands, such as Sealy, Serta, Beautyrest, King Koil, AH Beard and Tempur.
