Mattress Makeover: When Should You Buy A New Mattress?

As you lay in bed at night you may have asked yourself, “when should I buy a new mattress?” People often makeover a room or buy new bedding and comforter sets to get a fresh new look. The mattress is often overlooked because it’s not something we see every day. A mattress is actually the most important piece of furniture we own. We use our mattress nightly, expect it to give us 6-8 hours of restful sleep and many of us expect our mattress to last well over a decade.

The age-old notion of buying a mattress every 10-15 years just doesn’t do your body or quality of sleep any justice. The foundation of a good night’s rest, a productive day, and pain-free napping is having a supportive quality mattress.

Here are some signs that indicate you need a mattress makeover and you should consider buying a new one.

The first and most obvious sign is that your mattress has visible signs of wear. Simply said, it’s lived a good life. You may notice lumps, sagging, or visible wear such as rips or holes. A good mattress should provide both comfort and support when you sleep, so trying to rest on a sagging mattress can leave you waking up feeling like you hardly slept. You may even toss and turn all night while trying to flatten out a lump.

Another obvious sign that you may not realize is attributed to your mattress is waking up stiff or sore. Proper support from your mattress is the key to waking up refreshed and energized for the day ahead. Once a mattress no longer offers support for your sleeping position and body type, it is time to purchase a new one. One new technology now on the market is called RIGHTfit. You can experience RIGHTfit technology at any Factory Mattress location. RIGHTfit measures pressure points and body structure to match you up with the right level of support for your best night’s sleep. Let science help you find the right support and then you choose which mattress has the comfort level you like.

If you travel and have woken up feeling better than you wake up feeling at home, it’s time for a new mattress. Many times we just get “used” to the mattress we’ve been sleeping on and think the aches and pains we experience are a sign that we’re just getting older. Most of the time much of our discomfort can be attributed to an unsupportive mattress. Your bed should be your sanctuary, where you recharge and rest peacefully for the new day ahead. If you find that you are waking up on the couch or staying at hotels desperately seeking a good night’s sleep, look into buying a new mattress.
