The general rule is that when your mattress gets to be about 8-10 years old, you should consider a replacement. Years of dust and allergens can make it difficult to get a good night’s rest, along with the worn out springs and padding potentially causing back pain. Keep these tips in mind when you’re shopping to ensure you make the best purchase possible.
- Try before you buy, always. There are an almost infinite number of articles out there telling you which mattresses are best for who, but the only real way to find out is to try for yourself. Take some time, 20 minutes is good, to lay on a mattress before you decide to take it home. You’ll likely have this mattress for years to come, so take your time.
- Don’t buy into the brand hype. Buying the most expensive mattress, or one from the biggest brand out there won’t necessarily ensure you have the best sleep of your life. Most mattresses are constructed in the same general way, so focus instead on the allergen information, and how much the mattress moves when two people lay on it at one time.
- Check the return policy. No matter how much you test drive your mattress in the showroom, the real test comes when you’re at home, sleeping on it for the first time. This is why choosing a rent-to-own mattress can be so great, because if you decide the mattress isn’t right for you, you can bring it right back at any point during your lease.
