Tips for Buying a New Mattress

When it’s time to buy a new mattress, making your choice is easier said than done. Faced with a multitude of sizes, types, brands and features, shopping for a new mattress can be overwhelming. Let’s take a look at how to choose the best mattress for your sleep needs.

Choosing the Right Mattress Size

When deciding on a size for your new mattress, take into account the size of your room as well as how much space you and your partner need while sleeping. There are a handful of standard mattress sizes to choose from:

Simmons Beautyrest Silver Sasha Twin Plush Pillow Top Mattress From The RoomPlace
Image: Simmons Beautyrest Silver Sasha Twin Plush Pillow Top Mattress From The RoomPlace
  • Twin: At 39 x 75 inches, this compact Twin mattress is great for kids and can also accommodate a single adult (though the slightly longer Twin XL is a better choice if you’re tall).
Therapedic Majestic Full Firm Low Profile Mattress Set From The RoomPlace

  • Full: Full mattresses measure 54 x 75 inches. Providing a little more space than a twin, a full can be a good upgrade mattress for a growing teenager or for a guest bedroom. While technically large enough to fit some couples, a full probably won’t provide adequate space for two people to get a good night’s sleep regularly.
Therapedic Chiro-Pedic Queen Firm Mattress From The RoomPlace

  • Queen: The most popular size on the market, a queen size mattress is around 60 x 80 inches in size. This size accommodates most couples and is suitable for most bedrooms.

  • King: If you have the bedroom space, a king size bed is the best choice for a couple. Measuring 76 x 80 inches, a king mattress provides ample room to stretch out and get comfortable. For very tall people or those who want to indulge, a California King provides an extra 4” of length.

Choosing the Ideal Mattress Type

While there is no single best type, different mattresses are better for different sleeping styles. Here are the major mattress types and the sleeping styles they complement:

  • Spring: The traditional spring mattress features steel coils with various levels of cushioning on top.
  • Memory Foam: Memory foam mattresses are constructed of several layers of polyurethane foam and other materials. Despite the connotation that “foam” equals “soft,” memory foam is often on the firmer side, providing an optimal level of support that conforms to the body. In general, a high-quality memory foam mattress is the best choice for people with chronic back pain. (Note: Ask your doctor for recommendations.)
  • Firm: A firm mattress is useful for people who tend to sleep on their back, as it provides necessary support for the spine.
  • Plush: Plush or pillowtop mattresses can be beneficial to side sleepers, as they provide extra cushioning for the hips and shoulders. However, a mattress that is overly soft can cause a person to “sink in,” failing to provide much-needed support for the spine. As with firm mattresses, it’s important to find a happy medium.

More Mattress Shopping Tips

With these mattress sizes and types in mind, it’s time to go shopping! Here are some further tips for making the decision:

  • See it in person. Pick out your new mattress in-store, so you have a chance to see and feel it before you make a commitment. If possible, try to lay on each mattress you’re considering for at least 10-15 minutes in order to get a good sense of how it feels.
  • Take advantage of sales. Promotions and discount events like The RoomPlace President’s Day Sale are sure to help you save on a big purchase like this.
  • Read reviews. Make sure to research what other shoppers have to say about a mattress before you make an official decision.

What Is the Best Foundation for a Memory Foam Mattress

Bedroom with Memory Foam Mattress

If you’re considering purchasing a memory foam mattress, you’ll want to make sure you choose the right foundation to maximize comfort and protect your mattress from potential damage. In this post, we’ll be discussing some of the common foundation options and why platform beds remain the best option for those considering memory foam mattresses.

Plywood Frame or Floor Placement

While placing your memory foam mattress on a plywood base or directly onto the floor can provide stability for your mattress, the solid surface can allow a moisture buildup that can eventually lead to mold and mildew, especially if you live in a wet or humid climate.

Box Springs Foundation

While box springs can work as a proper foundation for a memory foam mattress, not every box spring is created equally. Traditional box springs do not necessarily have the center support needed to prevent sagging, bowing, or sinking in your mattress. If you do decide to use a box spring, we recommend opting for one that is specifically designed for memory foam mattresses.

Platform Bed Foundation

The best foundation for a memory foam mattress is a slatted platform bed. These foundations provide the support your mattress needs while also allowing adequate air flow to prevent mold and mildew. You’ll also want to be sure that the slats are close enough together to prevent sagging in the mattress. We recommend the slats be no more than 3” apart to make sure your mattress maintains its integrity.

At The RoomPlace, you’ll find king, queen, full and twin-sized platform beds that can provide optimum support for latex and memory foam mattresses. Visit one of our locations in Chicago or Indianapolis or browse our extensive bedroom furniture collection online.


The Best Mattress for Snoring Prevention

If snoring is a problem for you or your partner, the issue may be related to the way you are sleeping. When you sleep on your back, your tongue blocks off much of your airway and impedes airflow. Doctors recommend that patients who have an issue with snoring try sleeping on their sides before considering expensive medical interventions.

An innerspring coil mattress is generally considered the best mattress for snoring prevention. When choosing a mattress for side sleeping, look for a mattress that feels supportive and keeps your spine fairly straight.MemoryPedic

  1. MemoryPedic MH 4.0 Hybrid Mattress
    The MemoryPedic Hybrid offers the best of both worlds. Six inch wrapped steel coils offer fantastic support for side sleepers while the gel memory foam layers contour to the body for additional comfort. 
    Simmons BeautyRest
  2. Simmons Beautyrest Recharge Rosie Mattress
    Beautyrest mattresses feature pocketed coil technology and AirCool Gel memory foam that conforms to your body to fully support your hips and shoulders when you are sleeping on your side. The pocketed coils prevent motion transfer which is ideal if you are a light sleeper. This mattress comes with a 10-year warranty.
  3. Therapedic Elegance Plush Hybrid Mattress
    Latex foam and 2,000 individual micro-coils offer incredible support to keep your spine in alignment in side sleeping positions. Therapedic’s mattress cover is made with natural silk and wool fibers that are breathable, temperature regulating, and odor eliminating.

All three of these innerspring coil mattresses are good options for side sleepers and are available for sale at The RoomPlace. Get free next day delivery and removal of your old mattress on qualifying purchases. Plus, if the mattress isn’t right for you, you can exchange it hassle-free – that’s our comfort guarantee.

How to Know If You Need a New Mattress

We spend a third of our lives tucked under the covers so why not invest in a mattress that will make our sleep third comfortable, restful, and restorative? In this blog, The RoomPlace investigates the ins and outs of purchasing and maintaining a new mattress.


The Ultimate Mattress Buying Guide | The RoomPlace Chicago & Indianapolis

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
  • Innerspring

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.

Upgrade to a Queen

Maybe your teen’s crazy growth spurts have finally gotten to the point where he’s outgrown his twin bed. Maybe you finally moved out of that cramped apartment and actually have some space in your bedroom. Or maybe you just had the Big Day and now need a mattress big enough for two. It’s time to buy a larger mattress, but you aren’t sure if you have the space—or the budget—to go all the way to a king-sized mattress. If this sounds like you, you should consider upgrading to a queen!

Queen mattresses come at a standard measurement of 60” wide by 80” long. This is a whopping 21 inch width advantage over a twin, allowing you the room to finally sprawl out in comfort—or providing ample space for two to sleep comfortably. While not as wide as a king-sized bed, for many small and medium sized bedrooms a queen is the more practical option, allowing a great deal of comfort without taking up the entire room. The eighty inches of length is the same as a king, and represents a five-inch increase over a twin.

Here at The RoomPlace, we offer a huge selection of queen-sized mattresses, so we’re confident that you’ll find one that provides the perfect level of firmness to match your unique sleeping preferences—all while staying in your budget. A good night’s sleep is one of the cornerstones of a happy, healthy life, so what are you waiting for? Stop by one of our stores and pick up one of the best mattresses in Chicago. Let our friendly staff take care of you and we’ll get you out the door and fast asleep in no time.


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.
