The Queen Mattress – Learn How to Make a Smart Purchase


Looking to buy a queen mattress? Easy enough, you would think… not so quickly. Buying a mattress is not a simple feat at least not any more. With mattress retailers popping up every day, the consumer doesn’t know where to start anymore. Plus every mattress is going to be on sale, most of the time. Sure you’ve seen the blaring “MATTRESSES ON SALE!!!” sale signs every day, how can you miss them? In this maddening industry, where do you begin when all you want is to go to one store, buy one simple queen mattress and then go home?

One wonders why this industry gotten so crazy when the mattresses are not cheap to begin with. Cheap would be anything selling below $90 and probably not worth the money anyway. Mattresses have hit the roof with prices stretching in excess of one to three thousand dollars. Furthermore, sorting through the choices for your queen mattress is another venture; (“innersprings” or “Latex foam”? “Coil count or coil type”?), why should we care really? It’s obvious; mattress manufacturers are not making this purchase experience easy on us. However, you can arm yourself with knowledge of some of the basics, if you still intend on purchasing your queen size mattress.

You should especially do a little homework on your own before going into the stores, that way you’ll have a firm handle on what you need. Otherwise, you stand the chance of walking away with a mattress that doesn’t serve your needs at all. Start by visiting the websites of some of the major manufacturers whose mattresses you are considering. Compare differences in price and composition of the mattresses, and then visit informational sites that are not biased toward a manufacturer and start learning all you can about mattresses in general.

You may not remember everything when you go shopping for your new queen size mattress, but definitely think about the quality of the bed you are buying. Quality refers to the firmness or softness and only you can know what works. It’s said that a mattress that’s worth your money should keep your spine aligned while maintaining the spine’s curvature. This is why it is important that you lie on the mattress to test it out before buying… you don’t want it to be too soft or too hard. To tell if your mattress is too much of one or the other; too soft will cause your body to sag and too hard will make you feel extra pressure.

Make sure it is a queen mattress you need and that another would not do a better job. The queen mattress size is best for couples or for those who want that extra room to roll around while sleeping. It’s not recommended that you buy a queen size mattress for a toddler or young child, notwithstanding a typical child’s room would not fit a queen size bed. Bear in mind that the queen mattress size is sixty inches by eighty inches, so always make sure to measure the room before you buy.
