How to Pick Out the Right Mattress for You

There’s nothing quite like a restful night’s sleep. As we’ve mentioned before, sleep is a vital part of our lives. When we get enough, our memory and cognitive abilities improve. When we get too little, our concentration and critical thinking skills plummet. So when it comes to buying a new mattress, you don’t want to make a decision on a whim.

If you’ve ever been mattress shopping, then you know there are a lot of mattress options available to you. Everyone has their own set of individual needs when it comes to mattresses, so before you stop into your local Merrillville mattress store, consider the following:

  • Firm or Soft? Most people need a good balance between firm and soft: one extreme or the other may cause aches and pains each morning. When mattress shopping, be sure to spend several minutes lying on a potential mattress before making a judgment call.
  • Innerspring or memory foam? These are two of the most common bed types and each has its benefits. There are a wide variety of options when it comes to innerspring mattresses. You can find anything from extremely firm to extremely soft and everything in between. In recent years, memory foam mattresses have become more and more popular since they mold to individual’s bodies in ways other mattresses can’t. However, people who are temperature sensitive should think carefully before choosing memory foam as this material retains body heat.

Before heading down to The RoomPlace and checking out our selection of King, Queens, Full, Twin and Twin XL mattresses, try to determine what bed would suit you best. Once you have a general idea, feel free to ask one of our trained mattress experts what mattress would work best for you.
