If you are looking for a bed that you will be sleeping on every night, you will want to make sure that it has over 600 coils in a queen size. Anything under 600 will start to sag anywhere from one to three years. Most beds over 600 coils have 5-10 year warranties and will be replaced by the manufacturer if they start to sag by an inch and a half or if a coil pops. You should always replace the boxspring and the mattress at the same time. If you don’t replace the boxspring, the current one might not be sturdy enough to support it. Plus warranties require the matching boxspring.
he next step will be to visit a store that is reputable and well known. The larger the company, the better buying power they have and the better the prices are. Also ask them if they have a trial period. If you are spending a lot of money on a bed, it’s nice to know you can exchange it if it is uncomfortable.
Plan on spending over $700 for a bed that will not sag within the next couple of years. All of the ads that you see on television boasting about $99 mattresses are for horrible ones. Plan to spend over $1000 for a bed with great foam. The better the foam, the longer the comfort of the mattress. If you can afford to, buy a bed with some type of memory foam or latex. If you are worried about latex, understand that most allergies are caused by natural latex and not man-made.
* Get yourself a waterproof mattress protector to save your warranty. Manufacturers will not honor a warranty with any kind of stains on the mattress.
* Spend as much as your budget allows to get the most comfortable mattress that you can afford. Ask about interest free financing. You spend 2/3 of your life in bed and it’s worth getting a better nights sleep.
* You should ask lots of questions and if your salesperson seems confused, make sure you shop around. Ask about the coil counts, warranty, foams, and trial period information. Good luck and shop wisely!
