1. How do I know when it is time for a new mattress?
Purchasing a mattress is an important decision. One-third of your life is spent sleeping on a mattress, and during that time your body rejuvenates itself. Your mattress affects your quality of sleep and, in turn, how you feel during the day. It is time for a new mattress if you wake feeling tired and achy, or if your mattress is more than 10 years old.
2. How do I decide on a budget for my mattress purchase?
$500 or $5000? Mattress prices can vary greatly. You will be sleeping on your new mattress every night for the next 10 or more years, so we recommend purchasing the highest-quality mattress you can afford. We recommend mattresses made with organic latex. Latex can be more expensive than conventional innerspring mattresses or memory foam mattresses, because they are made of pure latex rubber— simply the best alternative to polyurethane foams. The good news is latex lasts longer than foam, so it may be more cost-effective in the long run. At My Green Mattress, we sell mattresses made with organic latex at factory-direct prices. That means no middleman, and no high-priced markups.
3. What styles of mattresses are available today?
Latex, memory foam, air, or innerspring? There are many types of mattresses available on the market today. The type of mattress that is best for you is a matter of personal preference. Many furniture and mattress stores offer a variety of mattress types that can range in price from a couple hundred to several thousand dollars. It is best to determine your budget, and then weigh the pros and cons of each mattress type. Finally, decide on the mattress that fits your budget and is most comfortable to you.
4. What size bed should I buy? Queen or King?
The size of your mattress is usually determined by the number of people sleeping in the bed and by the size of the bedroom. If two or more people (including children and pets) will be sharing the bed, we recommend buying the largest mattress that your room will accommodate. See the guide to mattress dimensions below. At My Green Mattress, we can make custom size mattresses to fit boats, RVs, trailers, bunkbeds antique beds and more. Please call us at 877-737-8237 for custom pricing.
