Mattress shopping can be an easy and breezy experience — if you know the right questions to ask. Because a mattress is seen as an investment in your health and overall quality of life, it’s important to pick out a mattress that will truly benefit you. If you’re wondering “​​what mattress is best for me?” The answer can really only be given by an expert. 

Many sleepers see mattress shopping as a painful activity when it can actually be enjoyable and educational. Plus, who doesn’t like to lay around while they shop? If you shop at Texas Mattress Makers, our experts will be there to guide you through every step of the buying journey. However, there are some steps you can take to prepare yourself before you step foot in our showroom.

Here is a list of questions to keep in mind before you decide to shop for a new mattress.

Questions to ask yourself when mattress shopping

When mattress shopping at Texas Mattress Makers, here are some questions you should ask yourself before and during the buying process. 

1. Will a new mattress help me sleep better?

Before diving into buying a new mattress, evaluate the state of your current mattress and ask yourself how your sleep quality is. Did you purchase a cheap mattress? Is your mattress sagging? Do you wake up with aches and pains? Do you constantly feel fatigued even after sleeping for several hours? If so, it may be time to buy a new mattress. 

2. What is my budget?

Determining how much you are willing to spend on a mattress is crucial information to have before making any decisions. Contrary to popular belief, not all mattress purchases need to result in an empty bank account. While there are many differences between an expensive mattress and a cheaply made mattress, Texas Mattress Makers has a wide variety of high-quality mattresses that can fit any budget. Remember, investing in a good mattress equals investing in yourself — and you are worth every penny.

3. What size do I need?

In order to determine what size bed you need, here are a few questions to answer:

  • Who is the mattress for? 
  • How many people will be sleeping in the bed? 
  • How large is the bedroom space?

These questions can help us determine how big of a bed you may need for your space. For example, if you are a single adult looking for a bed, you may need a different size bed than a married couple with three kids. Finding the best bed for co-sleeping or the best mattress for married couples will all depend on the specific circumstances of the sleepers involved. 

Texas Mattress Makers carries a wide range of mattress sizes that can suit any sleeper. 

4. What is my preferred comfort level?

While many mattress companies will try to sell you the “most comfortable mattress ever,” they fail to understand that every mattress feels different to each individual. While some people love to sleep on a cloud, others prefer a firmer feel. It’s all personal preference!

Factors such as your body type, sleep position, and pressure relief needs can help you determine what comfort level suits you best. Whether you choose to buy a mattress online or shop in-store, we recommend speaking to one of our experts before purchasing to ensure that you are getting exactly what you need out of your mattress. 

What questions should you ask when buying a mattress?

While there are some questions that you can answer yourself, there are many blanks that only a mattress expert from Texas Mattress Makers can help fill in.

1. What type of mattress would benefit me best? 

Here at Texas Mattress Makers, we believe in taking an individual approach to mattress shopping. Meaning what is best for you may not be best for someone else. Our experts take the time to ask you questions in order to understand your unique sleep requirements. From the information given, they can recommend mattresses that will best address your needs. 

For example, if you suffer from any health conditions such as arthritis or sciatica, we can recommend certain components to aid in pressure relief. Or if you tend to sleep hot, we can show you our cooling collection to make restless sleep more comfortable. 

2. What materials make up the mattress?

Here’s a harsh truth: many mattress sellers don’t know what materials their mattresses are made of. This oversight can result in you purchasing a mattress that contains harmful substances like fiberglass — and believe us, you absolutely want to sleep on a mattress without fiberglass. On the less severe end, you could end up with a mattress that is comprised of components that are not beneficial to you, or is just not built to last. 

Every component, including both comfort and support, has different benefits that can suit different sleepers. Because Texas Mattress Makers is a mattress manufacturer, our experts are knowledgeable on every single mattress component that makes up our products. We only use locally-sourced materials of the highest standards to ensure that our customers can sleep soundly on the highest-quality mattresses in the Houston area. 

3. What is the trial period? Is there a warranty?

You wouldn’t commit to a new car without driving it for yourself, so why should a mattress be any different? Before you decide to purchase a mattress, ask the salesperson (or in our case, the expert) how long the trial period is and what the warranty covers. 

Texas Mattress Makers offers “Our Comfort Guarantee” — a 90-night comfort trial period so the buyer can be sure that their mattress is perfect before fully committing. If within that trial period of 90 nights you still find that your mattress is still uncomfortable, contact our showroom and we will make it right. Note that much like a new pair of shoes, mattresses need a little time to break in. It’s common for mattresses to take approximately 30 uses to adapt to your unique sleeping pattern.

Our mattress warranty ensures that any mattress purchased from Texas Mattress Makers can be protected and repaired for reasons laid out in the Factory Warranty guidelines. We want your mattress to last you a lifetime so you can get great quality sleep for the rest of your nights.

No matter your circumstances, the experts at Texas Mattress Makers will do whatever it takes to make your mattress shopping experience as smooth as possible. 

Whether you want to buy a mattress online or shop in our showrooms, our experts can answer any of your questions to assist you in making the right choice for your best night’s sleep.
