Knowing what to look for in a mattress will steer you in the right direction when it comes time to make a decision. Remember that you will spend more time on your bed than any other furniture item in your home. A small amount of time spent researching your mattress choices can pay huge dividends by contributing to your comfort and well being for years to come.
If you’re wondering what to look for in a mattress, you will want to focus on price, size, firmness, and construction of the mattress.But it is always better to stop by in our outlet store and find the best mattress that fits your needs.

 

How firm is your mattress should be?
The mattress industry does not have a standardized measurement of mattress firmness. This means one manufacturer’s “firm” could be another maker’s “extra firm.” So use these descriptive terms as a guideline, not an absolute. This is another reason why it’s so important to actually try a mattress before you buy.
The best way to see how firm you like to have your mattress is to try different mattresses. In our mattress outlets this is all possible. We encourage you to stop by in one of our 2 locations.
Some manufacturers rank their mattresses by firmness using a simple verbal description: soft, medium, firm; while others offer a more elaborate 10-point rating system, with 3 to 5 indicating a soft mattress, 6 to 7 indicating medium firmness, and 7.5 to 10 indicating a firm mattress. But with each manufacturer creating their own rating system, what ranks as a "7" in one mattress may feel more like a "5" for another manufacturer's mattress. 

 

 

Always before buying the mattress we always recommend our clients to test the mattress first. Test the mattress before buying it!.
Read consumer mattress reviews if you prefer to buy online but it always better to stop by in our Belvidere or Algonquin locations to try it out for your self. This gives you a more practical idea of the popular mattresses currently available and allows you to narrow down the huge field of choices when buying a new mattress.
You need just enough firmness to properly support your spine and other parts of your body. But excess firmness can cause uncomfortable pressure points and prevent your spine from maintaining its natural curve while you sleep.
Softer is not better. Too much softness will sag under the middle area of the spine, which can cause poor posture and lead to back pain.
