What to think about when buying a mattress on Sale

When it comes to mattress shopping, especially during a Sale period, we know it can be overwhelming! We are all looking for the best solution for our needs: not too hard, not too soft, but just right – and want to get a great deal at the same time.

With all the options out there, the choice can seem overwhelming. We've broken it down into a few key things you should think about. 

Sizing things up

Measure your bedroom before you go into store, so you know how much space is available in your room. It is easy during a Sale period to want to buy the bigger bed, however you will need to ensure it fits your room correctly before you do. Don’t forget a new mattress protector and sheets also! We have a great interactive tool that will help you select the right mattress in no time..

Determine your Budget

Sale periods are a great time to get a good deal on a new bed, with great savings across the range. It is a great time to invest into a quality piece of furniture which will support your sleep and back for many years to come. Have a think about how much you want to spend and if there is ever a time to spend a little more to get a lot more – the Sale period is it.

Firm or soft?

Generally, people who sleep on their stomach prefer a firmer mattress, while people who lie on their back or side prefer a softer mattress. Sealy provide a range of pressure relieving comfort layers to suit your sleep position and personal preference. Some of these layers include natural fibre layers, memory foam and gel infused visco, all designed to work together to provide the ultimate conformance to your body and give you a luxurious night’s sleep.

Hot or Cold when sleeping?

Each mattress will disperse heat differently, however remember if you are hot in the night, it will be your body omitting heat and not the mattress. We do recommend if you get hot during the night, it’s a good idea to go for a bigger size mattress so there is space between you and your partner. Also, try to avoid large or high pillow top mattresses and choose sheets and mattress protectors which are made of natural fabric and are breathable.

How important is support?

The essential thing when buying a new mattress or bed, is to have your back in alignment and to ensure your body has enough support, which is what a Sealy Posturepedic is designed to do. When buying a Sealy Posturepedic, you are buying the latest innovation in design, with the mattress featuring a titanium alloy spring unit designed for support and durability.

Try before you buy

Once you've figured out how you prefer to get a good night’s sleep, all that's left is to come in and try out the mattresses for yourself. While you don't need to bring pyjamas, wear something comfortable and be sure to test out each mattress with your sleeping partner.

Remember, all Sealy mattresses have a 10 year manufacturing guarantee, so you can rest easy knowing you've made a great choice. If you need help deciding what's right for you, try our mattress selector, or view our full bed and mattress range.
