Mattress Buying Guide: Which One Works for You?
We spend about 1/3 of our lives fast asleep—why not increase the comfort of that time with a new mattress? If it’s time to upgrade your current mattress situation in Chicago or Indianapolis, The RoomPlace is here to give you some pointers on picking out the perfect mattress.
There are essentially three factors you must consider when shopping for a new mattress: size, firmness and material.
One of the easiest facts to consider when you’re mattress shopping in Chicago is the size of the mattress you’re after. Below, we offer dimensions of our most popular mattress sizes.
King Size Mattress: 76 inches wide by 80 inches long.
Queen Size Mattress: 60 inches wide by about 80 inches long.
Full Mattress: 53 inches wide by 75 inches long.
Twin Mattress: 38 inches wide by 75 inches long.
Twin XL Mattress: 38 inches wide by about 80 inches long.
If you’re a solo sleeper, the full mattress is a good choice since it provides ample room. For couples, we recommend checking the dimensions of your bedroom before choosing a mattress above a queen size. King size mattresses are considerably larger than queens, so take care to perform proper measurements before you begin your mattress search.
So, you have your mattress size picked out. Now it’s time to decide on the firmness of your mattress and determine what will give you the most amount of comfort. After all, you’ll be sleeping on your new mattress for quite a while, so take some time to research and ask as many questions as you need before settling on firmness. Below are the different kinds of firmness we offer at The RoomPlace:
- Plush: Midway between soft and firm, plush mattresses usually have more foam or tack and jump quilt layers than their firm counterparts.
- Euro top: Appearance wise, the euro top looks very similar to a pillow top, but the euro top design lines up with the mattress edge.
- Firm: Firm mattresses are ideal for people who tend to sleep on their back or stomach the most as it will provide the most overall support.
We also offer dual firmness, extra firm, pillow top firm, pillow top plush, cushion firm, soft and medium. For more information about these kinds of mattresses, stop in and chat with one of our skilled representatives.
Foam vs Coil
We offer three different kinds of mattress interiors to choose from.
- Memory Foam
- Gel foam
The general rule for purchasing an inner spring mattress is that the higher the coil count, the more support it offers and the more durable it is. We offer all of these variations in our queen and king size mattresses. We even offer Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattresses.
