Introduction to Bedding Mattress

Choosing the right bedding mattress can be tricky. There are many different styles, designs and brands available. Luckily for you, we're hear to give you a helping hand...

What Mattresses Are Out There?

The market for bed mattresses is huge. The best way to begin looking into mattresses is to break them down into categories such as type, size or design. Here are just a few examples:

Mattress Type

-Foam Mattress
-Bedding Mattress
-Memory Foam Mattress
-Air Mattress
-Water Mattress
-Mattress Topper

Mattress Size

-King Mattress
-Double Mattress
-Grande Mattress
-Memory Foam Mattress Single

Mattress Design

-Futon Mattress
-Spring Mattress
-Comfort Mattress
-Firm Mattress
-Soft Mattress

As you can see...quite a large selection. So the first thing to do before you go out buying a mattress, is to pick a type, size and design. That way you are more likely to find exactly what you are looking for, and not come home disappointed.

If you are looking to totally change your current bed and mattress for something newer and a bit more up market, some manufacturers like Tempurpedic offer a tempur bed, where you buy a mattress and get the absolute correct bed frame to support it. They did make it after all. This is really the way to go if you want to ensure you're getting the best quality.

Specialist Mattresses

If you're looking to buy a mattress for a specific reason, for example to relieve back or joint pain, there are a few options available to you. Here are just a few recommended brands:

Tempurpedic Mattresses (The absolute Best)

Hypnos mattress

Natural mattress (Made from natural materials)

The visco elastic foam in Tempura mattresses moulds itself to your body shape, therby supporting your body and relieving pressure on joints. It's space age material too...designed and developed by NASA. You'll never have slept better!

Going Out To Buy A Mattress

By now you will have chosen a type, size and design of bedding mattress, and are ready to go out looking, and potentially buy one.

When you walk into the shop, don't be overwhelmed by the amount of mattresses around...these display models are there to test, and for impulse buys from individuals who have not done their homework previously.

Walk up the store assistant and explain what you are looking for, and then asked to be shown what they have in stock. If they are good they will take you straight there and not try to blindside you with something else.

So there it is infront of you...a mattress you might be taking home. Explore every detail.

-Does it look right?
-Does it smell ok?
-Can you picture it in your bedroom?

The most important thing to do here is (and we can't stress this enough) CLIMB ON. You must always TRY BEFORE YOU BUY.

The amount of people that get a mattress home only to find it's not the right one is unbelievable. If the assistant says you can't get on, give him an earfull or walk out. Afterall, they aren't the ones who will be using it! When you're on there don't just lay back and relax the whole time. Remember when you were a kid and jumped up and down on your bed? Do that a bit, just not as obviously...this will test if the mattress is the right build quality for you. Some other things to be aware of are:

-Is it comfy?
-Does it provide you with enough support?
-Is it the right size? (Hopefully, but if your feet stick off the end go for the next size up)

So if you buy the mattress there and then, make sure you get a good price...and make sure you get at least a 5 year guarentee. Some manufacturers will even give you a lifetime guarentee!

Alternatively, you could do the above and find the exact mattress you want and then go home and look online for some cheaper deals. It's common for online retailers to do great deals on bedding mattresses and pillows, much cheaper than stores. A great place to start looking is

Getting Your Mattress Home

If the store is good, you'll probably get a free home delivery, or at least discounted. Don't let the store push you around here...tell them you want it delivered exactly when you want it delivered. Got a busy schedule? Well ask them to hang on to it for a few days. If they turn round and say they can deliver it on the day, even better!

Your bedding mattress should be delivered in a protective box or plastic sheet. If it's not, ask why. You havn't spend all that money only for it to be wrecked in a delivery van. Furthermore, check the mattress before you accept it. If it has any marking or damage at all...reject it! Phone the store and ask for a replacement to be sent immediately. You're not here to buy sub standard goods afterall.

Put the mattress on your (new) bed and make sure it fits ok. Climb aboard again just to make sure. Hopefully it will be 100% perfect and there will be no problems...but if there are better to find them earlier than later!

The final thing to do is to dress the mattress, and fall asleep on it. Relaxation to the max. Maybe you could even purchase some relaxing music
to aid your restful sleep.
