Mattress buying guide

It’s time for a new mattress

Purchasing a mattress is an important decision. One-third of your life is spent sleeping on a mattress, and during that time your body rejuvenates itself. Your mattress affects your quality of sleep and, in turn, how you feel during the day. It is time for a new mattress if you wake feeling tired and achy, or if your mattress is more than 10 years old. When choosing your new mattress, consider the following: support and comfort, type, size, and value.

Matters of support

Plush or firm? The answer to this question is personal. For years, doctors and chiropractors recommended a firm mattress. But, L&W Bedding mattresses are offered in a variety of styles to conform to and support your entire body. In our on-site factory we handcraft mattresses with posturized innersprings, latex, or memory foam. Our mattresses will meet your personal comfort needs. Stop in our showroom to choose the best mattress for you. When you think about it, your body contours are not flat no matter what position you sleep in. Whether you sleep on your back, side, or stomach, mattresses that are too firm can leave unsupported gaps between your body and the mattress. Firm mattresses can also put pressure on your shoulders and hips, and can cause problems with circulation. On the other hand, mattresses that are too soft allow your hips to sink. This is the heaviest part of your body and needs proper support to keep your spine properly aligned; otherwise you wake up feeling pain and stiffness. The best mattresses are comfortable for your whole body and keep your spine in alignment from your head to your toes.

What’s your type?

Latex, memory foam, air, or innerspring? There are many types of mattresses available on the market today. The type of mattress that is best for you is a matter of personal preference. Furniture and mattress stores offer a variety of mattress types that can range in price from a couple hundred to several thousand dollars. It is best to determine your budget, and then weigh the pros and cons of each mattress type. Finally, decide on the mattress that fits your budget and is most comfortable to you.

At L&W Bedding we offer all of the latest styles of mattresses as well as traditional two-sided innerspring mattresses. We handcraft with the most durable innersprings, natural cotton batting, and heaviest weights of foam available in the bedding industry.

Size matters

Queen or King? The size of your mattress is usually determined by the number of people sleeping in the bed and by the size of the bedroom. If two people will be sharing the bed, we recommend buying the largest mattress that your room will accommodate.

L&W Bedding mattresses are available in any size

We also offer custom sizes to fit boats, trailers, RVs, antique beds, and more. Contact us for more information on custom-size mattresses.

$500 or $5000? Mattress prices can vary greatly. You will be sleeping on your new mattress every night for the next 10 to 15 years, so we recommend purchasing the highest-quality mattress you can afford. And highest-quality doesn’t always mean most expensive.
