High thread count sheets and plush pillows are nice, but a good night’s sleep begins and ends with the perfect mattress. Whether you demand firm support or prefer something on the softer side, everyone has strong preferences when it comes to hitting the hay. Here’s how you can meet the mattress of your dreams at Home Zone Furniture.
When to shop
The general rule is that mattresses need to be replaced every eight to 10 years. Maybe you’ve been waking up with little aches and pains due to a sagging mattress, or maybe not. Regardless, mattresses collect sweat, dust mites, fungus and allergens over time and need to be swapped out once a decade.
While mattress shopping might not be as fun as shopping for home decor, imagine how much better you’ll sleep with a well-chosen mattress. We spend over one-third of our lives in bed, so why not make it a rejuvenating experience rather than a pain-inducing one?
What’s your type?
Shopping for a mattress can get complicated fast. There are many types of mattress to choose from, depending on your body type and unique preferences. For a bed with some bounce, go with an innerspring mattress. If you prefer less spring and a firm base, choose memory foam. Perhaps you and your sleeping partner like something different. In that case, try an adjustable mattress. At the end of the day, choose a mattress that will provide adequate back support and unmatched comfort.
When you arrive in a showroom full of mattresses, it’s hard to know where to begin! Some of our Home Zone favorites include the Bree-O-Pedic Signature Plush Mattress, Marble Falls Firm Mattress and the Payton Plush Mattress. All of these mattresses feature a supportive coil base and a high coil count to avoid sagging.
The Bree-O-Pedic comes at an incredible price for its resilient memory foam and breathable organic fabric.
The Marble Falls is one of the firmest options we offer. We love this mattress for its high-density foam and antimicrobial and hypoallergenic qualities.
For an amazing hybrid mattress, choose the Payton. The Payton combines resilient coil support with conforming, gel-infused memory foam.
When you’re mattress shopping, don’t settle for anything until you’ve done the 15-minute test. Lay for 5 minutes on your front, 5 on your back and 5 on your side to determine if this mattress will be comfortable for you in the long run.
If you’re bringing someone shopping with you, have them check to see if the mattress supports your spine in a neutral position — meaning that everything from your head to your heels is in complete alignment. A mattress that’s too soft won’t support your body’s pressure points, and a mattress that’s too firm will push against your pressure points. Either way, you’ll end up uncomfortable! Look for a mattress that makes you feel weightless.
