The purchase of a mattress can be confusing. With many different options and recommendations by sales associates and the internet, it’s tough to choose. Which brand? What type? How firm? What’s the difference? After a long afternoon shopping around they all begin to feel the same; you can’t tell which model, from which brand and for what price? Many people take a day to shop around and pick a mattress from the last place they saw. Chances are if you are reading this you are not one of those people, however this may be your last stop.
We are going to look at a few examples of what the average person is looking for in a mattress. We will compare it to what our experts say and how DOZY can play a role in helping you achieve a better quality sleep, and how you can take back your mornings.
- What type of mattress do I need? The simple answer is that pocket coils are what most people choose to sleep on especially in their master bedroom. Pocket coils have been the #1 Seller in all retail mattress stores for decades. They are trust worthy and reliable and typically can outlast a pure foam mattress dollar for dollar. However foam mattress in 2017 are becoming more and more competitive in terms of durability, support, and quality. The option most people opt for, for pure comfort and the best of both worlds is a hybrid mattress. This type of mattress provides both benefits from the pocket coils and foam.
- How firm do I need it? Most people look for a mattress opposite to what they have purchased last time around. The mattress is the most put off purchase in the household. Since a lot of people leave the purchase well passed the mattresses done date it creates a certain kind of resentment towards that firmness. With that being said, many mistakes can occur at this point. Mattress can begin to feel lumpy and the padding will begin to ware out after the 10 year mark. The best way to make sure you have a mattress that will first and foremost be good for your health and posture is to purchase something that is medium firm. This type of firmness is also typically the best seller in almost all stores and websites.
- What is the difference across all brands? basically, there is none. Mattresses have been made the same way for about 40 years. Before foam became more common and easy to produce a heavy felt covered the springs to give you padded comfort. Of course this was done away with as fast as foam could be produced in a non- toxic way. aside from a few innovations in foam such as memory foam and cool gel, the basic principle remains the same. Across all brands the same materials are available via a limited source of coils and foam aside from a few brands with gimmicky proprietary foams. Meaning if there are 10 manufacturers in Toronto, chances are they know each other and are buying parts from the same place.
At the end of the day like we say, shopping for a mattress can be confusing. If you decide to shop around the best thing too look at is the specs first and compare prices later. Learn what suits you by trying the mattress in home or in store. At Dozy we have set out to streamline the process by offering three mattresses. One of each kind; memory foam, continuous, and pocket coil. Our mattresses are all made medium firm that way most people can easily find what they should looking for and well under budget.
