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. 

 

 

Lets talk about firmness of the mattress.
Firmness is an interesting topic. This is due to the fact that firmness is highly talkative subject between consumers. After all, what does it mean to be “soft” or “firm”? Each human has a different perspective and definition of what these words mean based on their perceptions, understanding, and desires. Due to the confusion around this topic, I’ve created the following firmness guide to help break down the different types of firmness and common myths about firmness vs. support and ultimately help sleepers find the ideal level of firmness.
 That is why we encourage all of our clients that find us online to visit our mattress outlet and try our wonderful mattresses. You wont be disappointed. We got 2 locations: Belvidere and Algaquin.
The firmness of a mattress boils down to the initial feel when you first lie on the mattress. It’s important to note that firmness is not the same as support (see below for more information). When you first lie down, the mattress may immediately push back with a stiff sleeping surface. Most would consider this a firm or very firm mattress.
Other mattresses have more of a cloud-like comfort with lots of cushion and immediately contour and hug sleepers. Most would consider this to be plush or soft.
