Looking for Something?

The mattress you use can determine the quality of sleep you get. Experts say sleep helps energize our bodies and repair worn-out tissues but when the mattress you use is bad, you can not attain these benefits.

Affordable Mattress
Choosing a mattress is personal; you cannot rely on a sales man’s recommendation to make a decision. However, these 7 questions can help you make the right purchasing decision.

Let’s look at each of these 7 questions one by one.

What is the Price of the Mattress?

Knowing the price of a mattress would help you determine its’ affordability. Many mattresses come at cut-throat prices, but if you are on a budget, you know what mattress you can afford and the ones you can’t. If you cannot afford a mattress, there is no need to check the material it is made of or the comfort it offers.

Is the Mattress Suitable for my Health Condition?

If you have a health challenge, be sure to get a mattress that will relieve the pain instead of aggravating it. If you have lower back pain, experts say getting a medium-firm mattress will help your condition but consult your doctor before making a decision.

If you are allergic to dust mites and other allergens, examine the mattress to ensure it is allergen-resistant. You may want to choose mattresses made of natural products above synthetic products.

How Comfortable is the Mattress?

What level of comfort do you stand to get from the mattress? A good mattress has to be comfortable, so, be sure to check this out. If you are purchasing from a store, be sure to lie on the mattress in sleeping position to ascertain the level of comfort it offers.

What is the Size of the Mattress?

The size of the mattress should be taken into consideration as a twin mattress cannot serve a couple while a crib mattress cannot serve an adult (it can serve a child though).

For How Many Years Can I Use the Mattress?

How many years does the warranty on the mattress last? Air mattresses last for over 20 years while others last between 7 to 10 years. Check to make sure you purchase the mattress that will serve you for a long time and save you money (in the long run).

Does the Mattress come with Free Accessories like Bed Covers, Pillows, etc?

If the mattress comes with any of these, it saves you money as you don’t spend extra to get them.

What is My Sleeping Style?

Your sleeping style needs to be considered too. Side sleepers need mattresses that are slightly soft to relieve pressure from the shoulders and hips. Back sleepers need medium-firm mattresses as they tend to support the lower back. Stomach sleepers require firm mattresses that will keep the body afloat instead of shrunken. A mattress that is neither too stiff nor too soft would be ideal for sleepers who use a combination of styles.


Buying a mattress is a personal decision but honestly answering these 7 questions would give you a head start in your search for a new mattress.

Don’t forget that you can purchase a mattress at a local store or through an online store. Be sure of what you want before stepping out of your house. If you are researching online, be sure to read the reviews of other users to ascertain the strengths and weaknesses of the product.
