Buying a mattress can feel like buying a car or a home. Not because they’re as expensive, but sales staff will hound you at every moment to buy whatever mattress it is in their store, even though they are not the best for you.
Considering that most people buy mattresses less often than homes, it’s imperative that you spend a lot of time (and money) when choosing the right bed.
It doesn’t matter if you’re buying a single-sized bed or a king sized bed in Singapore. What matters is if you try it out first, no matter how awkward it feels.
Remember, you’re going to be splurging on your bed (you should be), so it is imperative you feel it out first. If the store offers an extensive return policy (like 60 to 90 days), then that would be great. If not, then try it out at the store.
Ideally, you’ll want to spend a good twenty minutes stretching out fully, curling up in your sleeping position, rolling side to side, and anything you need to do to get a good feel for the mattress.
You don’t always need a new foundation for your bed. If the old frame or foundation is still good and you’re not buying a bigger or smaller mattress, then you can save yourself a lot of money focusing on just the bed.
If, however, you do need to buy a new foundation, ask if it is possible to substitute the foundation that is usually bundled with your mattress with something cheaper.
Like cars, the price tag on that latex mattress in Singapore isn’t fixed. Typically, you can try negotiating with the sales representative for a better price or a better deal. This can often include accessories being thrown into your purchase.
As a general rule of thumb, don’t buy the mattress immediately as soon as you first see it. Check out other stores first, both online and brick and mortar ones, and look for the best possible deal. Try to see if any of the stores will sweeten the deal, and try bargaining for the best deal.
A good mattress is not cheap. If it’s cheap, then it’s not good. But, even though they’re pricey, mattresses are a worthy investment that will bring you good health and a newfound positivity everyday.
Of course, you shouldn’t try to go and spend beyond what you can afford. However, when shopping for a mattress, it’s best to remember that you’re going to spend a huge amount of your life sleeping, so you might want to make it count and enjoy the highest level comfort every night.
