The right mattress can make all the difference for a good night's snooze. Here are seven tips for choosing the best cushion to rest on for a perfect night’s sleep:
1. Negotiation is key.
When it comes to selecting a mattress, there’s one word to keep in mind: negotiate. You can always cut a deal on a mattress. Trust us.
2. Don’t shop eBay.
Make sure to give your mattress (or six of them) a test drive at the store.
3. Take your time.
Spend at least 10 to 15 minutes lying on it before the big purchase – on your back, your stomach and both sides!
4. Total support.
When you lay down on a mattress, make sure it fully supports your lower back and gives equal support to your shoulders and hips.
5. Always comparison shop.
Letting a salesperson know that you’re scoping out the competition might get you a better deal.
6. Fit for two.
If you’re sharing a bed with a partner, make sure the mattress comfortably fits you both.
7. Try out different mattress sizes.
Although a double bed (54” x 75”) sounds like it would be twice the size of a single (39” x 75”), it actually gives each person less sleeping space.
