Mattress Shopping in the “Year of the Sheep”
In case you haven’t heard, 2015 is officially the “Year of the Sheep”! Apparently 2014 was the chaotic “year of the horse,” but don’t worry everyone. Cheap Sheep has assured us all that the “sheep year” will be peaceful, tranquil, and cultivated with beauty and creativity. Sounds ambitious, Cheap Sheep! Let’s hope things work out. The “Year of the Sheep” might also be a sign that it’s time for a new luxury mattress.
By following these mattress shopping tips, you’ll be sure to find sweet dreams in no time!
Have a Game Plan
Before you begin mattress shopping, it’s a good idea to measure the dimensions of your bedroom and current mattress. This way you’ll know what mattress size works best in your space, or if upgrading to a larger mattress is possible. Evaluate what you like and don’t like about your current mattress. If it started hurting your back after a few months, then you should look at different brands and styles.
Fully embrace “sheep year” by making some much needed improvements to your sleep comfort. What makes you comfortable? Do you need more “support” or “softness” from a mattress? The Mattress Hub allows you to shop by comfort with our convenient “comfort scale.” Get to know the differences between soft, firm, medium, memory foam, cooling systems, and other exciting features!
Practice Makes Perfect!
If you’re going mattress shopping, be prepared to do a little “test driving.” We don’t mean getting in your jammies and taking an epic snooze-fest in the store (that would put Cheap Sheep out of a job). Wear comfy clothes and bring a list of the mattresses that interest you. Test each mattress for 15 to 20 minutes, so you get a feel for what it has to offer. Lay down for 5 minutes on your back, stomach, and on each side. Is this a mattress you feel comfortable entering a long-term relationship with, or are you “just not that into it”? Try a variety of mattresses and make sure it’s giving you everything you need in both comfort and support!
