If you’re deciding on a mattress and the one thing that’s stopping you from making a purchase is if the price will be worth it, then splurging on it, according to financial experts, isn’t actually a bad thing.
Mattresses are supposed to be huge investments, similar to purchasing a car. The number of times you have to use it is equal to a third of your life, which only means one thing: you need the best and most comfortable mattress there is. And sometimes, that requires spending more than usual.
Still, you have to be smart about buying mattresses. Even if they come with expensive price tags, they may not be the ideal one for your body type.
Choosing a mattress is definitely subjective, as what works for your friend may not work for you. So, it’s important to try out and do a test run of it before finally sealing the deal.
Schedule the test run with the store clerk or manager and prepare yourself for it. Wear your most comfortable clothes before climbing on the bed.
Consider how you sleep. Are you a side sleeper? Then trying laying down on the side of the bed to test the foundation of the edges and if it feels ideal for your body type. Flip to your back and stomach every few minutes, just to see how the whole bed is, and if the store allows it (as it should), you can sleep for a 10 to 20 minutes, so you also know how good it feels when you wake up from the mattress.
While pricey mattresses have its advantage, don’t completely disregard less expensive models, particularly if they present features that could work for your preference. Sometimes, these mattresses are only a slight variation of other models, so you might be able to pick one that’s within your price range while also meeting all of your requirements.
Pick out from a good store that has a solid return policy, should you decide on returning or exchanging the mattress after a couple of weeks.
