Getting more sleep is a common New Year’s resolution, and we fully support this initiative! Aside from the fact that we’re Chicago furniture sellers and love matching up our customers with their perfect mattress, we recognize the massive health benefits of consistently getting enough sleep.
For many people, getting adequate sleep at night is a struggle. Many modern adults work late, stare at a computer, TV or phone screen late into the night, or develop a sleep disorder like insomnia. If you’re struggling with getting enough rest and none of these factors are to blame, there may be another culprit for you to consider: your mattress.
When was the last time you bought a new mattress? Where and why did you purchase that particular mattress? At The RoomPlace, we have many mattress options, and it may be overwhelming for those who don’t know what they need. Here are a few pointers to help you find the one and only mattress you need for sound, restful sleep.
1. When you go mattress shopping, give yourself plenty of time so you can fit in the following: testing out as many mattresses as you can, in multiple positions; asking friendly sales people every question you can think of; comparing the proportions with the careful measurements you’ve taken of your bed frame. If you’re rushed you may not make a thoroughly informed decision.
2. Take note of what bothers you when you’re trying to sleep, and any consistent aches and pains you may notice when you wake up in the morning. Keep these in mind when looking at different mattress types: for example, there’s a big difference between a firm mattress and a plush one, or a molded one and a box spring.
3. Be ready to invest. Of course, we advise against buying secondhand mattresses—you don’t always know where it’s been, and if it’s too old it may not deliver all of the benefits that you need. Always do your due diligence and buy a new mattress that you can thoroughly test and research before you buy.
