How Much Should I Spend on a Mattress?

Whether your shopping for yourself, your guest room or a family member, choosing the perfect mattress can be a difficult decision. And, when you aren't sure what your budget should be, your options can seem endless.

At Mattress Firm, we don't think your journey to find the perfect mattress should be a hassle, and you shouldn't have to haggle a mattress price. That's why we have trained our mattress experts to help you find the best bed at every Mattress Firm store no matter your sleep needs or your budget.

So, if you're wondering how much does a good mattress cost when exploring your options and mattress prices, consider these things before shopping for the bed of your dreams:

How much should you spend on a mattress?

1. First Consider Your Sleep Position

Your first priority when shopping for a mattress should be your comfort, so when you're in the market for a new bed, consider your sleep position. While each sleeper is unique, we generally all have our favorite sleep position. So, consider if you're a back sleeper, stomach sleeper or side sleeper before hunting for a new bed to fit your sleep needs.

2. Decide on a Mattress Type

Once you've clearly defined your preferred sleep position, use our handy guide to learn about the best mattresses types for your sleep style. From ultra-plush to extra firm, innerspring to memory foam, our sleep position guide will help you discover the best type of mattress for your sleep needs and give you product suggestions at varying price points.

3. Pick the Perfect Size

Not too big. Not too small. Just right. If you're in the market for a Goldilocks bed, consider if you'll be sleeping alone or with a partner. Do you have dogs that like to cuddle up in bed, or do your kids like to sneak into bed in the middle of the night? How much space do you have in your bedroom? Considering these questions before choosing a mattress size will help ensure you have the space to spread out and get the rest you deserve.

4. Settle on a Budget

The average mattress price varies based on your preferred mattress type and size, but no matter your answer to the above questions, there is a bed to fit your needs and your budget. If you will be the primary sleeper on this new mattress, don't be afraid to splurge for a bed that meets your needs and can provide you with the best night's rest for years to come. Remember that you will be sleeping on this bed for 7-8 hours a night – so you want to be comfortable and have proper support. However, if you're choosing this bed for a guest room, you may want to choose a median price point as the bed won't be used every night but will still provide your guest with a great night's sleep.

If you're in the market for a new mattress, Mattress Firm is here to help. No matter your budget, you can always find the best bed for the bed price at a Mattress Firm near you. And, during our current mattress sale, you can stretch your dollar even further to find the bed of your dreams.
