When searching for a good quality mattress, “just fine” or “good enough” will not do. The process of buying a mattress should be just as diligent and well thought through as buying a car or a house — and those do not even impact your overall health! 

Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you make an informed decision on how to find a good quality mattress:

  • Step 1: Consider your needs
  • Step 2: Shop from a mattress manufacturer
  • Step 3: Look closely at the materials 
  • Step 4: Speak with a mattress expert

The signs you need a new mattress can often be hard to spot if you don’t know what you’re looking for. If you haven’t bought a mattress from Texas Mattress Makers, odds are you are in need of a new bed. Keep reading to find out how you can get your dream mattress for a great price.

Mattress checklist by Texas Mattress Makers

Step 1: Consider your needs

Here’s a fact: not every mattress will suit every sleeper. Some mattresses can look and feel the same but are made of entirely different materials, affecting their performance. If you’re not aware of what materials may suit you best, you may buy the wrong mattress and not get the quality sleep your body needs. 

When shopping for your perfect mattress, it’s important to know what you need out of a mattress before buying one. Here are some personal factors to consider when choosing your mattress:

  • Your body type: Where you carry your weight in your body and your height will determine what areas need the most support.
  • Your preferred sleeping position: Sleeping on your back, stomach, or side lets us know what pressure points on your body will require the most support and pain relief. 
  • Comfort preferences: Contrary to popular belief, you can enjoy any comfort layer of mattress that you like. Whether you want firm or ultra-soft, your bed can reflect your preferences while still providing optimal support. 
  • Health conditions: The right mattress should accommodate any type of health condition, helping you sleep more comfortably and minimizing pain or other symptoms.

Centering your own needs when mattress shopping will help you find a bed that will be as comfortable and supportive for your body as possible. All of this equals better sleep and a better life. For more information, read our guide on How to Choose the Best Mattress for Your Body Type.

Step 2: Shop from a mattress manufacturer

Hot take: if you want to find a good quality mattress that can last a long time, do not go to a big-name mattress store. Why? Because mass-produced mattresses are typically of lower quality, more expensive, and are not as durable.  

The best way to get the most out of your dollar is to purchase your mattress from the individuals who actually make the mattresses: the manufacturer.

How do I know if my mattress is good quality? 

When you shop from a manufacturer, you know that an expert craftsman made your mattress with the highest quality materials that have been thoroughly tested for durability and performance. At Texas Mattress Makers, every mattress on our showroom floor and online selection was constructed in our Downtown Houston factory. 

Our components, especially our Quantum™ Coil component, have been rigorously tested for over 10,000 hours by a third party to ensure they will provide you with the best comfort and support possible. 

Even the best mattress brands cannot compete with the prices and craftsmanship that a mattress manufacturer can offer. We don’t settle for anything less than perfection when it comes to your comfort.

What is a reasonable price for a good quality mattress? 

How much is a mattress from a mattress manufacturer? We offer lower, factory-direct prices for mattresses that are worth every penny. Because we cut out the middlemen, we can provide you with a good quality mattress at a fairer price than you will find elsewhere.

Step 3: Look closely at the materials 

How do I know which mattress is best? Look at what it’s made of. In the culinary world, certain dishes are considered upscale or haute cuisine because of the integrity of the ingredients and the chef’s talent. The same can be said for our products; our craftsmen are Michelin-star chefs, and our mattresses are the finest caviar — all for low, factory-direct prices. Imagine eating caviar that is top-quality but for such a low price! That’s what sleeping on our handmade mattresses is like. 

When selecting a bed, mattress construction matters. Our made-in-Houston mattresses are created with the industry’s highest-quality materials. We source all of the hardwood used to make our frames and foundations locally. Every coil, every piece of fabric, and every inch of foam is crafted to last. If you want a quality mattress, you must buy one made with quality materials. Don’t ever settle for less. 

Now, if you’re thinking to yourself, “I don’t know anything about mattress materials…how am I supposed to know what is good or not?” Fear not; we have just the people to help you.

Step 4: Speak with a mattress expert

In an industry where every bed seems to look and feel the same, consumers cannot always tell when a mattress is quality or not. Knowing what to look for in a mattress can be an overwhelming experience. 

That is where our experts come in.

If you were to take a look at our mattress reviews, you would notice that customers not only rave about how great their new mattress is but at how helpful and considerate our experts are. This is because we employ knowledgeable and passionate professionals who know exactly how our mattresses are made, knowledge that allows them to match you to your perfect mattress. 

The customer service was excellent! The expert was able to help me with all my questions. She was very helpful and helped me find the mattress I needed.
