It is important to protect large investments and give them due consideration; that includes mattresses and bedding. Your bed and everything on it are a large part of your life. You may not spend a lot of time thinking about it, but you sleep on it (hopefully) eight hours a night. That’s roughly 2,944 hours per year that you spend in bed. Now, you need quality sleep during those hours, because how rested you are affects job performance, relationships, and health. In that regard, your mattress and bedding are a big deal. Consider that when buying a mattress—get one you will be truly happy with so that you can be at your best during the day. Since mattresses are expensive and fairly central to your nightly routine, don’t forget to buy a mattress protector. It will keep your mattress free of creepy crawlies, discourage allergens, and save your mattress from spilled drinks and pet accidents. You can get similar protection for your pillows too. Give thought to all of your bedding. Make sure that your blankets and pillows aren’t impairing your ability to sleep. You are justified in splurging on luxury bedding—remember how much effect sleep and your bed have on your life.
Coil mattress, also known as the core or the innerspring unit, and provide the main support for the body. Proper support is essential not only for a good night’s sleep, but for maintaining a healthy spine. When considering the core of an innerspring mattress, there are a number of important factors: the number of coils used throughout the mattress, the way the coils are constructed, and the shape of the coils.
There are four main types of coils mattresses:
· Open (or Bonnell) coil mattresses have hourglass- shaped coils, which are attached to surrounding coils with a small wire spiral called a helical. This design provides good initial support and works to isolate motion transfer. However, open coils do tend to wear more quickly than other coil constructions.
· Offset coil mattresses have a construction similar to open coil but have a square head, which in theory enables the mattress to contour better. An offset coil is slightly more cylindrical in shape than an open coil which gives it durability.
· Individually wrapped (or Marshall) coil mattresses have an individually wrapped cylindrical coil contained within separate fabric pockets. Each coil is separate so the rest of the bed isn’t disturbed by the movement of the coils surrounding it.
· Continuous coil mattresses have rows of advanced coils made of a single continuous wire. By sharing the weight load across several innersprings, each spring holds its share and integrity longer.
Choosing the right mattress is really important for you and your body. Sleeping in a good mattress, makes you sleep really well, have good dreams, and your body rest as it should be. Bad mattresses make you have bad dreams and wake up cranky and not sleep well at all.
Choosing a mattress is displayed in stores for a reason. There not just there to look pretty- they are there for you to test them, if you comfortable and your body is too. That the way you know which one is perfect.
Just by sitting in the corner of the mattress doesn’t mean you will know like that if that mattress is for you. You can’t possibly know by the edge of the mattress because, first you going to spend the majority of the time on bed not sitting down. Secondly you not going to lay down on the edge of the mattress, you are going to want to be in the middle.
And if there are two people sleeping in this same bed, you’ll need to lie down at the same time. Just look the one is comfortable and support for you.

Choosing the right mattress is ultimately a matter of subjective comfort. And that’s not something we can decide for you - you know yourself better than we ever could. That said, there are a few guidelines for picking the right mattress and making sure that you pay the right amount of money for it.
Go for something with a little give in it - not too hard, but not too soft either. A good mattress supports your body and conforms somewhat to the shape of it.
Coils vs. Springs vs. Pockets
This one’s a matter of the budget. Independent coil mattresses are the most expensive, but they’re a good buy if your budget can take it. If not, the other types will be cheaper.
It’s okay to haggle sometimes. As the proverb goes, ask, and it shall be given. We’re not guaranteeing you’ll get anything for having asked, but it never hurts to do so either.
Know the Budget
If you know what you can spend and what falls in that range, you can approach the situation from an unemotional position. If you see a bed that’s just slightly out of your reach, you can use your budget as a negotiating tool. You never know what you could walk out with.
Know the warranty. Figure out if the bed is really good for 10 years like the salesman says.
