What sources of mattress expertise are out there?
When you're thinking of buying a new car or a hi-fi, you probably have a look on the internet to find reviews, comparisons, consumer articles and manufacturer data sheets. You might take a look in dedicated magazines or motoring and technology supplements that come with your weekend paper. When you're buying a mattress, you should follow exactly the same process.
Why mattress expertise matters
You will spend around 8 hours of every day asleep or in bed. That means that your bed is probably the most-used piece of furniture in the house, which in turn means that you need to take the time to find out as much as you can about it before you commit to buying anything. Your main sources of expertise will be:
This is the place that most people turn to first today, in order to find out information on a specific purchase. Whether you want to find out the latest about your favourite mattress manufacturer or you just want to read other consumer's views on memory foam technology, the internet is one of the best places to look. Dedicated mattress websites like MattressNextDay have a wide range of information to help you decide what type of mattress to look at and what to think about before you buy. Manufacturers sites have lots of information about their own methods of material selection and construction along with useful information on how to care for your mattress in the long term.
If you are visiting a mattress showroom, it makes sense to speak to the salespeople or showroom manager. A reputable company will have a lot of useful knowledge and should be able to point you in the right direction once you have explained your needs to them. If you're unsure about the advice you're getting, make a note of it and check it out online when you get home.
Highly rated news sites such as national "broadsheet" newspapers and top news channels may provide additional, independent information. Journalists often consult expert sources when writing consumer articles, so these can be a good source of neutral advice.
