We know that mattress shopping isn’t quite as glamorous as your family’s first puppy, or deciding what type of pool should go in your backyard. But nevertheless, we spend nearly one-third of our lives asleep in our bed, so it’s an important decision that you’ll make a handful of times throughout your life. When is the best time to buy a new mattress? As with all things, there are a few factors to keep in mind when you consider the best time to purchase a new mattress.
We’ll explore the mattress replacement cycle and how often people typically replace their mattress, what to look for when buying a new mattress, and whether or not to buy online.
How Often Should You Buy A New Mattress?
If you subscribe to the “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” mentality — you could be compromising your sleep quality each night you spend on an old mattress. According to the National Sleep Foundation, a mattress lasts 7-10 years. Aside from age, there are other warning signs to watch for that indicate it’s time for a new mattress: visible wear and tear, sagging or dips in the mattress, or if you sleep much better away from home.
Another good idea when buying a new mattress is to plan your purchase to coincide with big life changes. Did you just move into a new apartment? Did you just get married? Are you newly pregnant? These big life moments can be triggers to tell you it’s time to upgrade your mattress.
When To Buy A New Mattress
Is the word “comfort” flashing in your mind right about now? That’s common, and comfort is important. But in addition to comfort, you need to consider support, alignment, and longevity. Contrary to popular belief, just coming into a mattress store and lying down on a mattress for 45 seconds isn’t a true indication of how your body will react to the support while you’re asleep.
SomosBeds mattresses are designed to hug the contours of your body while providing you with a great night’s sleep.
In-Store vs. Online Mattress Purchases
According to a 2016 study from the Better Sleep Council, 92 percent of consumers said it is important to try out a mattress in-store before purchasing. But — many consumers are used to the convenience of online shopping.
SomosBeds provides you with both options. You can test out one of our mattresses by visiting a Mattress Warehouse store – the official retail partner for SomosBeds. You can also buy the mattress while at the store, or order it from our website. Either way, you’re getting a quality mattress at an affordable price.
