What type of mattress are you looking for?
When buying any product it is always good to understand what you are looking for whether it be a car, shoes, furniture, or mattress! There are different benefits of each model, make, and comfort. As we all know there are Gel Memory Foam mattresses, but some would be amazed to walk into a mattress store and find 60+ different models!

Each person is different, just like each foam and it is very important to get the correct one for you!

Don’t be afraid of PRICE $$
You will be spending (hopefully) 8 hours a night on your mattress. It is important to get something that will support your back and be comfortable! There is no worse way to start your day than with back pain. Studies have shown the median price for a new bed is $700-$1000.
DO the 15-minute snooze test inside the store!
Mattress retailers have the beds on display for a reason! To help the consumer decide what bed they need and want. When looking for a bed, take 15 minutes and lay on the one you believe is for you. This will help ensure you don’t have to go back twice!
Do I need just a mattress or the set?
It is recommended to replace your box spring especially if you have an older mattress. If you decide to use your old box spring, be sure to check your new bedding warranty to ensure it remains valid. If your bedroom set utilizes a platform base, you do not need a box spring.
Protect your investment!
Don’t forget to get a mattress protector for your bedding. This ensures there will be no accidents on your mattress. A simple stain can void your manufactures warranty.
