Wedding Season Part 3: Mattress Shopping for Two

5 Tips For Couples When Mattress Shop Together

You've signed the marriage license, said "I do" and returned from your perfect honeymoon. The lease is signed and you're about to move into the perfect house or apartment. Now, it's time to go mattress shopping for two. The first year of marriage is an adjustment in itself, and adding poor sleeping habits to the mix is completely unnecessary. Here are some tips to help buy the perfect mattress for two that will keep you both well rested and ready to take on the world together.

Be Upfront About Your Sleeping Needs

We all have our unique needs when it comes to how we sleep, and your mattress is a large factor in your overall sleeping experience. It is important to be upfront and honest about your preferences; for example, whether you like a hard or soft mattress. Going with what your partner wants out of politeness is a recipe for disaster, and knowing right off the bat what kind of mattress you both prefer will prevent headaches and frustration further down the road.

Research Mattresses Before Your Go Mattress Shopping Together

With the seemingly infinite combinations of size, shape and types of mattresses, choosing the right one can be overwhelming. It will be extremely helpful to take the time to sit down with your partner and make a list of all the things you are both looking for, as well as don't want, in your new mattress. It will allow you to go into the store informed and help save you time in the buying process. Start by checking out our glossary of common mattress terms to help you learn more about the options that will be available.

Remember That A Mattress Is An Investment

While no one says you have to spend an exorbitant amount of money on your mattress to guarantee a great night's sleep, it is important to realize that your mattress is an investment in your well-being. Finding the right mattress for both of you at the right price can contribute to better sleep, better health and even a better relationship.

Communicate Your Needs As A Couple To Your Salesperson

At Mattress Firm, our sleep consultants are highly trained and will work to help you find the mattress that best fits both you and your partner. The clearer you are able to communicate your needs, the better your sleep consultant will be able to guide you toward the best mattress for you. Come prepared with a list of needs and questions, as well as a budget and price range. Doing this will help to quickly narrow down your possible choices, and cut down on wasted time looking at mattresses that do not fit your needs.
