Frequently Asked Questions

You spend a full third of your life sleeping. It affects every other part of your day, so keep that in mind when considering all the facts of mattress shopping.

How do I know when I need a new mattress?

How do I know when I need a new mattress?

Mattresses aren't like an appliance—they don't just quit working one day. They give out gradually, almost imperceptibly, until over time you begin to notice the signs – you’re waking up sore in the back, neck or joints, and you’re not sleeping as well as you do when you are away from home.

Any of these signs indicate that you may need a new mattress soon. Although you might have become used to the old “not-so-perfect” mattress, you'll certainly notice the improvement when you sleep on a new one! You’ll have better support, enhanced comfort and a deeper, more restful sleep.

When it comes to price, remember that purchasing a bed is an investment. Your investment can be as large or as small as befits your budget, but in the end, your bed should be something that you’re comfortable sleeping on.

What should I look for when shopping for a mattress?

What should I look for when I’m shopping for a new mattress?

It can feel a little like juggling, but there are several things to keep in mind as you audition potential new beds:

  • A mattress should feel good. That may mean firm, plush or something in the middle. The important thing is that you’re comfortable.
  • Try different levels of support. Compare and contrast to get a better understanding of what’s right for your needs. Ask any of our sales associates for more information and they’ll be happy to explain any of our mattresses’ features in greater detail.
  • Go with something durable. A mattress is an investment. Choose strong, long-lasting materials that will be supportive and comfortable for years to come.
  • Size matters. If you have a spouse or sleeping partner, think about how much sleeping room you each need—a midnight elbow to the nose doesn’t do much to help you face the day refreshed. Many people find that a queen or especially a king-sized bed gives them enough room to sleep comfortably.
Do I need a new box spring with my mattress?

Do I need a new box spring with my mattress?

We recommend you purchase a new foundation when you buy a new mattress. It may seem like an easy place to realize some savings, but that’s not the case in the long run.

A mattress and box spring age together. An old foundation has developed flaws right along with its old partner that transfer through to any new mattress placed upon it, causing the new mattress to break down faster. Investing in a complete set up front saves you the trouble of having to buy another mattress prematurely.

How do I test a mattress effectively?

How do I test a mattress effectively?

  • Wear comfortable clothing. Feel free to take off your coat and shoes to be as comfortable as possible.
  • Lay down. Start out on your back. Do you feel comfortable? Next, get into your normal sleep position. Are you still comfortable?
  • Take your time. Spend a few minutes on the mattress. Allow your body to adjust to the mattress, and allow the mattress time to conform to you.
  • Bring a spouse or partner. Another person on the bed will change how the mattress feels. Is there enough room for the both of you? Try mattresses out together so you can get a sense of how the bed will feel and move with another person on it.

How should I shop for a guest bed?

How should I shop for a guest bed?

It’s understandable that you may not want to spend too much for a rarely used guest room. We’ve even heard some folks say they go for the cheapest set they can find because they don’t want their guests to get too comfortable – they don’t want them to stay too long!

Bearing that in mind, we’d like to make a few suggestions:

  • Consider your company. Who will be visiting? An old college buddy may not mind a budget mattress, or at least he says so. Your in-laws, on the other hand, will give you an earful the next time they come to stay.
  • You might end up using the bed yourself. People use guestrooms for a variety of reasons, from a spare room to use during a master bedroom remodel, or when one partner is sick (or snores badly) and the other needs sleep.
