How to Navigate Your Next Mattress Purchase

by Star Furniture on October 4, 2016

What’s a girl have to do to get a good night’s sleep?

With so many mattress choices available, purchasing one can seem like an overwhelming task. Everyone stumbles upon this issue at one point or another, whether it’s buying a new mattress for your new home or just replacing an old one that’s wayy overdue.

The whole process of buying a mattress may seem daunting and unclear, considering we only buy a few in our lifetime.

Especially nowadays.

There is so much new technology unfolding, countless features to choose from, mattresses in a box, plush versus ultra plush, and the list goes on! How does one know where to begin?!

Well, thankfully, I’m here to set things straight and outline a couple pointers for those of you in the market for a new mattress. 🙂


Read up on the technology.

If it’s a been over a decade since your last mattress purchase, an overwhelming amount of information about these newer, high-tech mattresses can be difficult to decipher. Mattresses have changed significantly, so make sure to read up on the latest and greatest mattress features that make these babies 10x more comfortable than ever before. Understanding the basics about the different types of mattresses available also helps too. 🙂

Which features are right for you?

In addition to actually understanding what all the high-tech mumbo jumbo actually means, you’ll definitely want to read up on how different types of mattress features cater to specific sleeping needs. For example, a mattress with a cooling gel technology will work wonders for those who wake up hot and bothered in the middle of the night (ahem, me).

Mattresses in a box

On top of that, we are also hearing about mattresses being sold in a box!

Do I really want to sleep on a mattress that can be folded into a box?

Let’s be frank – if I’m going to spend a third of my life asleep on a mattress, I sure better be able to place my back on it before purchasing it. 🙂

At Star, we have some of the most highly recommended mattress brands in the industry who really know their stuff when it comes to making a comfy bed. You can actually come by our store to try it out for yourself.

Plush vs. Ultra Plush ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

There are more than a few options when it comes to deciding the comfort level of your mattress, which seems overwhelming at first.

It turns out that the difference between plush and ultra plush isn’t very difficult to grasp. Plush is soft, yet firm. Ultra plush is like you’re sleeping on a cloud!

Basically, as long as you have an idea of how firm or soft you like your mattress, then narrowing down the various options for different comfort levels will be a piece of cake.

Hopefully this helps guide you a bit on how to approach this type of purchase nowadays. If not, we also have a complete mattress guide for reference available on our website! Luckily for you, we are currently offering some crazy closeout savings on some of our Tempur-Pedic mattresses while supplies last! These specials are definitely worth checking out! 🙂

Until next time lovelies, and don’t forget to share with your friends!
