5 Simple Reasons Why It Makes Sense to Invest in a New Mattress

A new mattress can literally change every part of your life. It affects the comfort and functionality of your bedroom and the way you live at home. Also, lack of sleep can lead to irritability, poor diet and an overall decline in health. Sleep is something that everyone should  invest in.

1. You’ll be sleeping on this mattress for many years.


Consider the fact that you’ll probably spend at least 7-9 hours per day for at least eight to ten years on a single mattress — that adds up to more than 26,000 hours (or 3 years!) of being supported by the same surface. That’s not to mention the amount of time you’ll spend in bed reading a book, watching Netflix, eating breakfast in bed, spending time with your partner, napping with your pets, and so much more. That’s a lot of time! Make sure that the choice you’re making is one that will satisfy your needs for a long time; it’s short-sighted to sacrifice comfort and functionality for a smaller price tag.

Plus, at Mattress Firm, your budget stretches further so that you don’t get stuck with a mattress that you’ll end up regretting over the course of the next decade

2. Mattresses can affect your overall health and well-being.

Generally, being healthy has several components. Diet and  exercise are the obvious ones, but did you know that your quality of sleep is a huge factor as well? Lack of sleep can actually cause you to gain weight, regardless of your diet and exercise. A good mattress will help support a good night’s sleep and keep you happy and healthy. Our goal is to provide our customers with a better bed than you might have expected to be able to get before walking into one of our stores.

3. There’s nothing like having a haven to come home to.

Your bed is about more than just sleep – it’s nice to have a comfy and cozy place to come home to relax after a long day. It’s important to enjoy sleeping on your mattress, but you also want to be comfortable doing everything else you do in your bed, like wrestling with your kids or even just answering late-night emails with your feet propped up.

4. Old or worn out mattresses are uncomfortable – for everyone.

Life changes frequently, as should your mattress. Assess your current sleep situation: since you last bought a new bed, have you had any major life changes like a move, pregnancy, or serious injury? As you’ve grown older, have things begun to bother you that you wouldn’t have noticed when you were younger?  Choosing a mattress that fits your specific sleep needs will ensure that you sleep well every single night, and will help you wake up feeling refreshed.

5. Investing in your bed is investing in YOU.


Sometimes, it can be hard to think long-term. But, investing financially in your mattress ultimately is an investment in yourself.

Your overall quality of life and happiness partly relies on how well you sleep, how rested you feel throughout the day, and your overall quality of life at home. The right mattress for you will be the centerpiece of your bedroom, so it’s important to take this decision seriously or, if you haven’t thought about it, to consider upgrading your mattress today. At Mattress Firm, you don’t need to invest a lot to get the bed you want, and this small investment will pay major dividends throughout the rest of your day. When you shop with us, your budget stretches further on our broad selection of mattresses and bedding accessories from leading manufacturers and brand names, including Serta, Simmons, Dream Bed, tulo and Hampton & Rhodes.
