Shopping for mattresses online is easy when you know what to look for. These days, there are lots of great options when it comes to building your dream bed. The type of mattress, the materials and the price are all important considerations, so it makes sense to do a little research first.
The Process To Buying A Mattress Online
By starting your search online, you’ll be better able to find the perfect mattress at Ben’s with just a few clicks. Here’s what to look for:
Shopping online makes it easy to narrow down your options. One of the first decisions you’ll need to make is the type of mattress you want: Innerspring or Memory Foam. Both are popular options that have their own unique advantages:
- Innerspring: This is a traditional form of mattress, built with a framework of spring coils, which give the mattress its “bouncy” feel. The innerspring is topped with a variety of foam layers, which contribute to the overall softness/firmness of the mattress.
- Memory foam: These mattresses have a foam core, rather than an innerspring. Foams like memory foam conform to your body and distribute weight evenly, helping to reduce the pressure points that cause tossing and turning.If you’re not sure which type is right for you, don’t worry. Once you have a few mattresses picked out online, stop by a Ben’s to try it out – you can lie down on it in-person to see how it feels before you buy.
In the old days, before the Internet, it was much harder to determine what materials were inside the mattress and how they affected your comfort. Today, by shopping online, you can quickly compare the construction features of several mattresses to find the right one for you.Some materials to consider:
- Pressure-point relieving foams
- Back/lumbar support
- Edge support
- Coil quantity and/or design
Make sure the mattress you want fits your room! While most mattresses come in all the standard sizes (Twin, Full, Queen, King), you may find that some come in additional options, such as “Twin XL” or “California King.” By shopping online, you’ll be able to see what’s available before you take the next step.
If you’re buying a mattress for a new home, be sure to measure your space first to ensure it’s the right size. In smaller bedrooms, be sure to leave a couple feet of walking space around the perimeter of the bed, in addition to space for dressers and swinging doors.
