“You must make a choice to take a chance, or your life will never change,” says a brilliant motivational quote. That’s all true, but sometimes it feels more painless to decide on a delicate matter than to choose what product to buy for you or your house! It has come to this point because we have too many options and we have developed many needs and preferences. Diversity is a fantastic thing, but sometimes we need a manual to navigate through it. This demand applies even to the crucial quest for the right mattress. The market offers so many brands, so many types and so many choices that we may feel overwhelmed. I put down a short guide for choosing the perfect one, which I hope it will come in handy, considering we spend almost one-third of our life in bed.

Shop online

It’s a more convenient option because you don’t have to leave the house and go from store to store. You have access to a lot of brands, and the mattress is delivered to your door. Most online stores offer a trial period and have fair return policies (stipulations you need to check in the first place). Also, you’ll save some money since the prices are usually 10 – 15% lower than they are in traditional stores.

Do extensive research

Reading a lot of reviews about various products will help you make an informed decision. Unbiased assessments make an excellent ally in this quest. When shopping online, you can quickly analyze and compare options due to the broad range of reviews and videos created by real customers. Don’t disregard the tips offered by specialized websites, like Try Mattress: for instance, to determine your sleeping position and look for a product that will fit your body type.

Set a budget

If you’re going to sleep on this mattress for ten years, you need high-quality materials, but they may not be cheap. So consider the budget you’re willing to invest, and this will help you narrow down the list. This guideline was very constructive for me when I started looking for a mattress.

Choose type and material

Mattresses come in various forms: innerspring, foam, memory foam, polyfoam, latex, air-filled, gel. Once you know your preferences and what kind of sleeper you are, you can decide which of these materials will work best for you. Also, take allergies into account, if you have any. Or the sleeping position of your partner. The bright news is that there are manufacturers who offer hybrid mattresses, combining the best of all options, but these are quite pricey models.

Ask for details

Try to get as much information you can on how well the product is made, its expected durability, on the quality of the materials and other important aspects, like heat transfer, motion isolation, edge support or bounce. Ask questions if you feel that the description of the mattress doesn’t provide all the details. Remember: information is power, the more you have, the better the outcome of your quest!
