Do you already have a mattress size in mind? Before you decide, there are a few factors to consider. The answer really depends on you, your home and who will be sleeping on the mattress. Let's look at the most common mattress sizes. Keep in mind that sizes may vary slightly between manufacturers:
There are three parts to consider regarding a mattress purchase: padding or upholstery, inner springs, and a box spring or foundation. People often associate the word mattress with the top layer of the bed—the padding. The mattress padding can consist of three-to-eight layers of padding. The layers consist of man-made materials, natural fibers, and a variety of foams including memory foam and latex foam. Padding quantity does not always equal quality—that is why it is important to carefully consider the materials inside your mattress. Materials such as wool, silk, and memory foam / latex foam are commonly used in mattress padding. Established brand names and quality of certain padding varies. For instance, foam padding in a $2,000 model will vary from the foam padding in a $3,000 model.
Innerspring coils allow for even weight distribution while sleeping. Mattress prices are often contingent on the number of coils used in its makeup; yet, like padding, quality of coils differs, so more coils do not necessarily mean a better quality of bed or rest. Coil design, function, and durability vary amongst manufacturers.
Box springs are affixed with mini coils, which help supplement weight absorption. A quality box spring can help extend the life of a mattress set. Some mattress sets come affixed with a foundation rather than a box spring. Foundations can be framed in wood or steel, yet do not address shock absorption like box springs. At Sam’s Club, there is also a selection of beds with adjustable foundations. With adjustable foundations, you can sit up and read, have breakfast in bed or watch TV. Or, simply adjust the bed for maximum comfort while you’re sleeping. If you’ve never tried an adjustable foundation, now’s the time to try one!
It is recommended to give some thought to the purchase of a water bed. Water beds may not be for everyone, yet waterbeds do offer some advantages over traditional beds. Water beds can be heated, so they’re a good option for colder temperatures. What’s more, the life spans of waterbeds are a couple years longer; and waterbeds are not as susceptible to microscopic parasites that may trigger asthma, eczema, or allergies.
