Buying a Bed On Any Budget

Mattresses are an investment. The goal is to get one that is comfortable, supportive, and fits into the budget. There are one or two strategies that will prolong the life of the current mattress, if time is required to save money for a brand new one. Turning the mattress around and flipping it every few months from the very beginning are common ways to maintain comfort and support. A mattress topper is another way to get more use out of the current mattress.

A Low Budget

If none of those work, a different mattress will be needed to prevent back problems, tossing and turning all night, and pressure points. A second-hand mattress in excellent condition may be an option for a low budget. Steam clean the mattress to sterilize it. Goodwill cleans items before selling them, but not all second-hand shops follow suit.

A new mattress that can be purchased on a limited budget is available at Ikea stores. Brands associated with low cost include the Denver Mattress Company, Signature Sleep, Purple Mattresses, and DHP. These are low in price while being of decent quality. If a topper has been used on the replaced mattress, and is in great condition, it can also be used on the new one for added comfort.

The Middle Range

People who are able to spend a bit more money on mattresses will be wise to do so. These will offer better support and durability. The Saatva company has a bio-soy foam mattress that is designed to last and provide a cool sleeping surface.

Dream Cloud is another company that falls into the mid-range of pricing. Leesa mattresses have three layers of foam for support and motion isolation. Wright W1.27 mattresses are the result of cutting-edge technology and new materials. These examples will not be set at bargain pricing, but will be financially feasible for many professionals and small families.

High-End

The highest quality mattresses are aimed at those for whom money is no issue. The Harmony Bed, for example, is made of luxurious organic latex. Zenhaven mattresses live up to the name, and Tempur-Pedic is well known over here for top-of-the-line mattresses. Whatever the budget, be sure the chosen mattress is supportive and is comfortable for the preferred sleeping position.
