Written By: admin Published In: Hits: 4125

Let’s be real, mattress shopping is confusing. On the surface, they all look the same – square, white and bouncy. So, how do you choose and how much do you really need to spend? At The Bed Shop we understand how overwhelming bed shopping can be. To help you suss it out, we’ve compiled a few handy tips to make the process less stressful. 

1. What are your physical needs 

Be realistic about what you, and if you’re sharing the bed, and your partner need from the bed. Does he require an extra length bed? Do you have old sports injuries that need added support and comfort? Do you have a big family that wants to meet in your bed on Sunday mornings? It’s these small details that impact our lives and turns a simple bed into an investment for your health and family. 

Or Dynamic Orthopeadicand Hybrid ranges offer various support and comfort systems to suit the whole family. Your physical needs should be taken into consideration when you’re shopping for a mattress and it’s important to shop for a mattress with your partner.

2. Size matters

Is bigger always better or should you just spring for the basic double bed? Are you buying a bed for your res room or is this for the tiny spare room in your new house? It might also be that you’re moving to a smaller place or a retirement home that has less space. Take the size of the bedroom into consideration when buying a bed but also consider how this bed will fit into your life in the next 5 to 7 years. Your needs are different from what they were in the past and it’s important to be realistic about the space you have available.   

3. The materials make the mattress

If you’ve ever wondered why some beds are more expensive than others, then consider taking a closer look at the materials used to manufacture the bed. The latest sleeping technology like latex and gel memory foam or bamboo and adaptive fabric finishes can add to the quality and price of a bed. For more information about our memory foam beds, read this. Dynamic Bedding is the exclusive manufacturer of mattresses for The Bed Shop and manufactures a wide range of quality beds to suit every budget and comfort setting, using only the very best materials available on the market. They’re also able to custom make a bed or mattress to your specific needs and requirements, learn more about our custom-made options here.

4. Try it out

Technology has made life so convenient. At the click of button nearly everything and anything can be delivered to your door in a matter of days. The Bed Shop’s safe and convenient online shopping option offers customers the opportunity to buy a mattress or bed set without all the hassle of going instore. But at one stage or another, we do recommend going into The Bed Shop and feeling a bed out. Plush, firm or gentle support is different for everyone and the only way to figure what works best for you is to ‘test drive’ a few mattresses with your partner. Spend at least 15 minutes lying down on both your back and sides to feel what is most comfortable for the both of you. Find your nearest The Bed Shop here.

5. Consider it an investment 

Buying a quality bed might be expensive now but ultimately, it’s an investment in your health and relationship. Keep in mind that a good quality bed will last you between 8 to 10 years – all depending on the quality of the mattress that you’re sleeping on. Remember that we spend a third of our lives sleeping – that more time than we spend in our cars. While you’ll definitely find a bed to suit your budget at The Bed Shop, it’s worth considering a bed made of more advanced materials and fabrics. The Bed Shop now offers lay-buy options for our customers, visit us instore today to learn more about our payment options. 

6. Protect your investment

One of the biggest mistakes new mattress owners make is not protecting their investment with something as simple as a waterproof mattress cover. Stains and spills can void the warranty and are easily preventable by buying a mattress cover at The Bed Shop. The mattress cover will also help keep dirt, dust and bacteria away from your mattress and prolong its life. 

7. Check the warranties

No one reads the fine print. This is nothing new, but when you’re buying an item that has to last for at least 10 years you need to check the warranty and safely file your proof of payment. Dynamic Bedding’s Mattress either come with a 10, 20 or 25-year service warranty and coversmanufacturing defects that are caused by defective workmanship or materials (T&C apply). You can also rest assure that our mattress are SABS tested and approved. This means they’ve been put through the SABS process of certification and has passed performance and quality assurance tests which meets qualification criteria stipulated in a standard, specification or regulation.
