So you’re buying a new bed or mattress…
Fantastic, it’s one of the best investments you can make! We spend 7-9 hours a night in our beds, so spending your money on something that’s responsible for your health, productivity and general mood is always a good idea.
With so many different options on the market, it’s hard to know where to start with buying a new model. And the age old question of what type of mattress you actually like is mostly met with a blank stare and a struggle. Firm, soft, memory foam, pocket spring, the list goes on!
Well, the biggest mistake people make when buying a new mattress in NOT trying before you buy. 4 out of 5 bed shoppers spend less than 2 minutes trying it out in the shop which is no time at all when you consider how much time in a year we spend asleep! If it’s a double bed and you’re going to be sharing, it’s a good idea to bring your partner. Different people have different tastes and you won’t truly know if you like the feel of the mattress unless you try it in the shop.
Get on the damn bed, and try it out! It’s the only way you’ll find the perfect match for you!
