Ah, mattress shopping; an event that many people dread. In fact, a lot of people will continue sleeping on their worn out and uncomfortable mattress for a lot longer than they should just because they do not want to shop for a new one. Although this process can be confusing, frustrating, and time consuming, it is very important. A mattress is something that you will use every single day, multiple times per day at that. Your mattress must be effective and comfortable for your individual situation, thus meaning it is not a one-size-fits-all solution.
Once you decide that it is time to shop for a new mattress, there are a few things you should take into consideration. First off, we recommend that you shop for a new mattress in-person. It is so easy to log onto the internet and find a mattress that you think is good, but it is not the most effective way to shop for one. As we discussed in a previous blog post, you will never know if you actually like a mattress that you buy online until you have purchased it and had it delivered. This is a big risk and one that we do not recommend taking, especially for an item that is so important. Here are our tips for how to shop at a mattress store so that you get the best possible mattress.
Mattress store shopping tips
Try out different firmness options and brands
The best part about shopping in a mattress store is the fact that you are able to lay on many different mattresses. Most mattress stores carry a wide selection of the mattresses found on their website in-store, so you do not miss out on too many options. Mattress stores also label their mattresses with helpful and informative facts that tell you the differences between each mattress they carry. If you truly do not know what you are looking for, we recommend trying out all of the different firmness options and brands that the mattress store offers. That way you will be able to learn what you like and do not like while exploring your many options.
Get advice from salespeople
At Mattress Warehouse and many other mattress stores, there are expert salespeople that are always present in the store. These sales people are knowledgeable on the many different mattresses found in their store and want to help you make the best choice possible. In fact, our salespeople are equipped with a breadth of knowledge on each mattress brand that we carry so they can answer any questions you may have. It is hard to remember everything that you may research about a mattress before coming in to try it, so be sure to utilize salespeople to your advantage while shopping in-store.
Visit multiple locations
As you continue your mattress buying journey, you may hit a wall after a certain point. You will likely exhaust every mattress option that the store you are shopping at carries. But once you hit this wall, do not give up. One good tip would be to talk to the salespeople and see what different types and brands of mattresses their store’s other locations carry. This will allow you to try even more options in order to find the perfect fit for your unique sleep needs. Mattress Warehouse is bound to have a mattress that will improve your sleep, so be sure to visit our different locations!
Take some time and think before purchasing
Once you have finished your shopping and think you have settled on a mattress to purchase, we suggest giving it some thought before you actually purchase. Do really enjoy the firmness and materials that mattress is made of? If you are not fully convinced, it is best to write down your favorite mattress options and continue looking at what is out there. Here is a list of big mistakes to avoid while buying a new mattress. We hope you have enjoyed learning about how to shop at a mattress store!
