SAN ANTONIO —
With all the different types of mattresses, many manufacturers, and the range of price points, the idea of buying a Sleep mattress is enough to keep you awake at night.
\"It\'s something of a nightmare,\" said a senior editor.
\"A big part of the reason is that there are products that give you a good idea of what it is, what it does, and what\'s inside.
Mattress, basically a box. a secret box —
You don\'t know what\'s inside.
In addition to what you can feel or feel lying on the mattress, you really don\'t know the ingredients of the mattress.
Perratore and other experts, however, have some tips to help you rest easily.
The first step is to figure out if you really need a new mattress.
A television advertisement from a major retailer offered reasons for changing mattresses every eight years, in part because of the accumulation of dead skin cells and mites.
However, the ick factor alone should not decide whether or not to make a purchase.
Unless these particles aggravate allergies, \"This is a problem in your head,\" Perratore said . \".
\"Most of us have a good enough immune system and we don\'t have to think about it.
That is, the mattress usually needs to be replaced every 8 to 10 years.
\"The real question is whether the mattress is still comfortable,\" Perratore said . \".
\"Did you wake up? Achy is the bed depth drooping or choppy, then we hear a mattress in part of the bed that says between the two sleeping partners
When you have something like this and you are out of warranty and you have gone for less than 8 to 10 years, it might be nice to replace it.
\"A non-profit organization supported by the mattress industry recommends an assessment within seven years.
If the mattress is still comfortable and in good condition, please re-evaluate it in another year, the spokeswoman said.
Leaving the painful bones aside, the part that really hurts in mattress shopping is taking out cash.
\"I see the people below.
Buy so many mattresses because it\'s an expensive purchase, \"said the owner of Corpus Christi
Headquartered in San Antonio, there are factory direct selling manufacturers in retail stores.
\"Everyone wants a mattress for $199.
This does not exist.
\"At the very least, buyers can expect to pay between $500 and $600 for a decent Queen --size mattress.
\"From what we tested, there was no shortage, like the $500 baseball field did a good job,\" Perratore said . \".
\"You can spend very little money on a mattress, and you don\'t want to spend too much, considering that it\'s the third day of your day.
On average, consumers spend between $800 and $1,000 on the Queen.
The size of the bed, says Perratore.
What was once called a box spring --
$150 to $300 is needed.
If your old mattress is compatible with your new one and is still intact, consider keeping it to save a few bucks.
One of the challenges of mattress purchase is the difficulty of comparison shopping.
The manufacturer will modify the sleep set-
For example, by changing the fabric cover-
So retailers can sell a product under a different name.
\"Mattress shopping is very confusing because it\'s designed like this,\" Cantwell said . \". “The mass-
Companies that make mattresses protect their retailers.
Consumers are not customers.
They are only the end users of the product.
The mattress store is a customer of the big guy.
\"It is still possible to make a good deal.
To save money, Perratore recommends shopping on major holiday weekends --
Labor Day, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving Day and July 4
Retailers usually cut prices by 50%.
If you cannot reach the store during the sales process, please keep the advertisement.
\"Just because it\'s not a holiday weekend doesn\'t mean you can\'t walk into that store and say \'If you want to sell it to me today, I pay $600.
Will they really get you out of the store?
\"Now, what to buy.
While the choice seems overwhelming, it comes down to the choice between the internal spring and the professional sleeping bed: Foam, memory foam, gel, latex and air mattress.
The Innerspring mattress can be made of continuous or closed coils, that is, coils wrapped individually in materials.
Despite the growing popularity of packaging coils, \"I wouldn\'t say they are inherently better than other types of coils,\" said mattress writer for the trade publication Furniture/Today.
The hybrid mattress will add a few inches of foam to provide the experience of \"between normal mattresses\"
\"Jane naysprings and the memory bubble,\" Perratore said . \".
\"The cost of these hybrids is usually higher, although paying more doesn\'t necessarily mean it will last longer.
We only have a $3,025 hybrid in our rating.
So in our eight-year simulation test
\"Special needs or preferences can lead to a professional route for buyers.
\"Let\'s say you \'ve been in a hotel for a week and it has a nice new innerspring and you still hate it, or any inner spring you lie on seems to no longer do it for you, or if you have a special problem with us getting older, say, in this or that place or all the places above, some people look at these types of beds --
\"Memory foam or adjustable air,\" he said . \".
\"Another example is that these other beds can help if you have two sleep partners.
For example, one likes a soft bed and the other likes a hard bed.
With the adjustable air bed, you can adjust the two halves separately and even have some similar memory foam beds.
Some people may be tempted by gel.
Inject the mattress to ensure a cool sleep.
But this statement may be too good to be true.
\"We talked to the experts and they said it was a gimmick and it seems to us to be the same,\" Perratore said . \".
Once you have chosen the mattress, consider knocking it off with a new pillow.
\"The pillow is the bed for the head,\" Perry said . \".
\"They need to be replaced every few years.
Fresh pillows can give you a good night\'s sleep.
Need low stomach sleep
Pillows usually need a medium size pillow.
The pillows are strong.
Most side sleepers need a higher profile, stronger pillow.
