How to Buy Mattresses in 3 Easy Steps

You are going to spend, on average, somewhere around one third of your life asleep- shouldn’t it be on a comfortable and high-quality mattress? Here at Gibson Brothers Furniture Inc., we want to help you find quality pieces of furniture for your home, but our quest for quality doesn’t end there! With great mattress choices, we can also help you get a great night’s sleep. If you are thinking of buying a new mattress, we have some tips that can help you get the right one for you.

  1. Do your research. Your hunt for new mattresses should start before you ever set foot inside a mattress store. Now is the time to think about what it is about your current mattress that you don’t like. Do you wake up sweaty or have problems with aches and pains? What position do you favor when you sleep? Do you like a firmer or a softer mattress? Looking into these issues can help you narrow down your choices for your ideal mattress, making the next step easier.
  2. Take your time. When shopping for mattresses, don’t lie down and then hop back up two seconds later! That’s not how you sleep, and it isn’t how you should shop for a mattress. Plan to spend at least 10 minutes lying on your test mattresses to gauge how they conform to your body and their comfort level.
  3. Go for quality. Quality mattresses are going to last you longer and hold their shape better. When properly cared for, quality mattresses are going to be a much better investment and give you a comfortable night’s sleep.

These are just some of the tips that we offer when it comes to shopping for mattresses. For more assistance, please give us a call today!
