When it comes to purchasing a new mattress, the choices can seem endless, and they kind of are.
With so many manufacturers and so many mattresses, how can one decide what company has the best mattress for you?
Let’s explore some of the reasons that these 10 mattress brands are so popular and sell so many mattresses.
When you are looking to make a major purchase like a mattress you will want to consider a few things before you buy like:
1. Brand Reputation
Are they a company with decades of a reputation for their products, or are they one of the newcomers? Either way, the company reputation can mean a lot when purchasing a new mattress. Even if a company is a new kid on the block the customer service, quality of their product and how satisfied their customers are with their products can put a newcomer ahead of some older more established brands.
2. How Long Have They Been Manufacturing Mattresses?
This may not be a huge consideration when you are looking to purchase a new mattress, as some of the newer manufacturers are letting new technology help boost them to the forefront of brand recognition in mattresses.
The newer materials used in some of today’s mattresses allow for smaller companies to produce some great products, and without having to have brick and mortar retail storefronts to sell their products, they can spend more on the quality of manufacturing the mattress.
3. What Type of Selection Do They Offer?
To some, this may be more of a significance than to others. If you are looking for a king sized bed, but the manufacturer only makes their mattresses in a queen size, then they are not the company you need.
Now others may want a large variety of the same size mattress to choose from, and this again may eliminate some of the newer manufacturers that only offer a couple of mattresses and only in one size.
However, for some the what seems like endless styles, colors, and overall variety may seem overwhelming, and they seek simplicity with a new brand.
4. What Kind of Warranty is Offered?
This can sway a customer that is on the fence about which mattress to decide upon. Purchasing a new mattress of any size is a bit of an investment, and no one wants to waste money. Having a warranty that will help protect your investment may sway your decision between brands.
5. How Do You Purchase the Mattress?
This was never a consideration in the recent past but with the new technology comes new ways to deliver products. Some of the newer mattresses can be shipped directly to your door, and eliminate the need for you to leave your home to purchase your new mattress.
Some of the newest and most popular brands have relied on this ability to forge their place in a market that for decades seemed to be dominated by a few large well-established name brands.
With these things considered here are our choices.
