Seven Things to Know Before You Go Mattress Shopping

We spend a third of our lives in bed, so it’s important to make the right choice

Finding the perfect mattress can be a challenge, but there are ways to make sure you get it right.

According to William Wellauer and Joshua Rigsby at ESC Mattress Center in Everett, knowing these few things can help you find the comfort you’re looking for:

Dress comfortably and appropriately when trying beds. The best way to pick the perfect mattress is to try them out by laying down on them. If you’re comfortable in what you’re wearing, you can focus on the mattress.

Get fitted for a pillow. Pillows are an important part of your sleep system, and using the same pillow on all the beds you try helps to eliminate one variable.

Take your time. Spend some time on the mattresses. “In fact we want you to try them out,” William says. “You’ll spend a third of your life in your bed if you sleep eight hours a night, so you should take some time in the store to really see how it feels.

“And we’ll give you a 90-night trial to make sure you got the mattress of your dreams.

Know what you’re looking for. For example, you should be aware that “firm” and “supportive” aren’t the same thing. “Firmness describes how hard a bed is. Support describes how well the mattress puts your spine into proper alignment so you wake up feeling better,” Joshua says.

After-purchase care counts. “Humans are gross!” says William. “You really should consider using a mattress protector. Sweat, body oils, dead skin cells and everything else builds up in your bed over time and this will contribute to your bed breaking down prematurely.” A good mattress protector will keep all those things out of your mattress so it stays hygienic and lasts longer.

Find a dealer you can trust. “We’re here to help you make an informed decision, not to bamboozle you,” William says. “We have over 20 years of mattress industry experience and we want to pass some of that information to you to help find a bed you’ll love.”

Ask questions! “With over 20 years of mattress industry knowledge we’re more than happy to answer questions on the industry,” Joshua says, “even if it’s not about something we carry.”
