Is it time to break up with your current mattress?
You began happy together, but lately something is different. Your back hurts. You have joint pain. You can’t remember the last time you slept through the night.
The signs are clear.
It’s time to get a new mattress. This thought is terrifying to most people. Purchasing a mattress is difficult. It can be expensive. It’s challenging to know where to begin – there are so many options available.
We have compiled information into three easy steps to assist you in finding and purchasing your new mattress.
Step One: Determine What Type of Sleeper You Are
It’s important to first understand what kind of sleeper you are. Do you sleep primarily in one position? Back sleepers need a firmer mattress, where side sleepers need something a little softer to conform to the angles of their body. What type of mattress do you prefer? Do you like to sink in a little, or do you want a firmer feel?
All good questions. Once you figure out what you may be interested in based on how you sleep, you’ll need to narrow down your options. We’ve created this handy guide to help you discover what mattresses are just right for you.
Step 2: Figure Out What You Want In Your Mattress
Mattresses are made with many different materials, so there are a lot of options. Check out the different types listed below to determine which one you may want:
Innerspring – Steel coil springs connected in a single unit or individually wrapped coils.
Pillow-top – Another layer of plush upholstery sewn onto the top of the mattress.
Hybrid – A steel coil support system combined with one or more types of foam and can contain gel or other materials.
Gel mattress – Contains gel in the support system, upholstery layers, or both. The gel is added to the foam and can provide a cooling layer for enhanced sleeping.
Memory foam –A support system made of high-density polyurethane foam which contours to the sleeper’s body.
Latex – Latex foam is used as the support system – made from plant- or petroleum-based materials.
Adjustable base – Elevates or lowers the bed to raise your head, feet, angle your back and bend your knees.

Step 3: Go Test Them Out
Once you know what kind of mattress is good for the way you sleep, and you’re aware of what type of mattress interests you, then the next step is to find a Badcock store nearest you and try them out.
· Lay down on it. Your eyes aren’t a good indicator of what mattress will work for you. Spend a good 5 – 10 minutes trying out your favorite sleeping position. Floor model mattresses are there so guests can lay down on them.
· Rate the mattress. Take notes – assign a number, use a five-star system, whatever works for you, but make sure you rate your experience. This is a great way to narrow down your choices and get closer to a decision.
· Ask questions. The store associates are knowledgeable and can help you in your quest to find the perfect new mattress. Make sure you have a list of questions handy and jot notes down to refer to later.
Once you find your new mattress, your body will thank you.
