7 Things to Keep in Mind Before You Go Mattress Shopping

Whether you have bought a new bed or your old mattress has started to feel a little mouldy, it’s finally time to buy a new mattress and we want to share with you a couple of things that you should always keep in mind before you hit the market.

Sleep is a fickle mistress to many of us and we totally understand the need to obsess over getting the perfect mattress. So here we are with a list of things we always tell our customers to keep in mind.

  1. Know Your Foams

EVERYTHING depends on them. Mattresses are made of various kinds of foams – PU, memory, latex, rubberised coir, etc. Some are softer than others, some provide better support than others, the options are truly endless. 

We suggest you do your bit of research before you go shopping to ascertain just the kind of mattress you need for better sleep. Remember to compare prices to make a better decision.

  1. Measure Your Bed

It might seem obvious but many of us head straight to a shop without ever measuring our beds. A bigger or smaller mattress is not only uncomfortable, it’s also unsightly. 

Remember to take your measurements first and save yourself a second trip to the apartment.

  1. Brands Have Value

They do, really. Especially when buying something that is expensive and will last a long time. You might think local shops offer you better value for money but it might not be true. 

We are not saying it can’t be true but let’s agree there’s a fair chance that when something goes wrong within the trial or warranty period your local shop might decline to assist you. 

Brands, on the other hand, have earned value and respect over years not only by selling quality products but by also efficiently managing customer distress. 

When buying a mattress try to stick to a well known brand. 

  1. There’s a World Outside Spring and Coir Mattresses

Spring and coir mattresses might be the most common mattresses out there but that doesn’t mean they are the best. 

They are often prone to sagging and allergens. Research well and look for other options.

  1. Reviews to the Rescue

Always read reviews when buying online. All that glitters is not gold, rings truest with online shopping. Happy customers posting pictures of their mattresses should tell you all you need to know.

  1. Test Drive

Lie down, touch and even sniff your mattress before buying it. We can’t stress this enough. Make an informed choice by testing your mattress in every possible way before paying for it and save yourself a ton of hassle. 

Nowadays online mattress brands offer deals for you to test your mattress after purchase, but allow free returns and full refund within a stipulated time period 

For example, Soho offers a 30 days return policy if you are uncomfortable on the mattress , no questions asked and a paid return after the 30 days upto 1 year. 

  1. Soft, Medium, Firm?

Mattresses come in various comfort types and there is no one size fits all. Always buy for your body’s requirements and consult your doctor if you are suffering from back issues. 

Another point, don’t rely on comfort labels fully. One company’s extra firm might be another’s medium firm. Always check for yourself.

This may still come across as intimidating at times and which is why we also suggest the best person ask for this is the professionals and most of the online mattress brands today have a customer support team who can be reached via a toll-free number and they will guide you through the complete purchase process

For example, Soho offers a toll-free customer support helpline which can be reached via 18002081212 & some exciting technology tools on their website, sohomattress.in such as the Mattress Selector which is a pre-qualified set of questions you have to answer and it recommends you to ideal mattress based on your answers.
