The perfect mattress is critical to a great nights sleep and because the average Canadian will spend one third of our lives sleeping – we think a mattress is one of the most important pieces of furniture you will ever buy! But with so many options and price points it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Before you lose any sleep over picking the perfect new mattress, consider our expert tips below.
Try Before you Buy
It is important when you are buying a new mattress that you test it in all the positions that you would normally sleep. A mattress is a long-term investment, so take your time, lay down and stay awhile. Don’t be shy - we promise you our sales staff have seen it all!
Find the Right Fit
Sleep studies show that we toss and turn between an average of 40-60 times a night. To ensure a quality night’s sleep, make sure the bed is wide enough to fit you and all your needs. Don’t forget to consider any nightly visitors such as toddlers or pets!
The Goldilocks Equation
Too soft, too hard, what’s just right? Buy only what feels good to you. It is a myth that a mattress needs to be hard to be good for you. Your perfect mattress will feel comfortable and should support your shoulders, hips and back -providing you with the necessary support to alleviate pressure points.
A second mattress myth is that the higher the coil count the better the mattress is. Today, some of the newest technologies in mattresses do not have any coils in them. Latex, memory foam and gel beds have no coils at all.
Start with the Foundation
Placing a new mattress on an old foundation will interfere with the comfort and support of that mattress. It can also reduce the useful life of the mattress. We carry various heights to fit most box springs. Not sure what foundation you need? Ask a member of our sales team, they will recommend the appropriate foundation for your mattress.
