5 Steps To Choose The Best King Size Mattress

If you're in the market for a new king size mattress, you may feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of options available. But with a little research and guidance, finding the perfect mattress for your needs isn’t as hard as it seems. Here are 5 simple steps to help you choose the best king mattress for your home.

1) Examine the mattress size

Be sure to consider the size of your bedroom and measure the mattress before you purchase it. King size mattresses are generally 76"x 80". If space is an issue, consider opting for a California king mattress, which measures 72” x 84”. Another option is a split king mattress, two extra-long twin beds pushed together to create one larger bed. Split kings can be useful if two different people share a bed but prefer different levels of firmness. According to sleepwell.com: "A king-size bed provides more than enough space for people to roam around without fear of falling off the edge. The extra room will also allow the partner of a restless sleeper to have more space without being disturbed."

2) Decide on your preferred level of comfort

Before you buy a king mattress, determine if you prefer a soft or firm surface. Soft mattresses are best for people who enjoy sinking into the mattress and relieving pressure points. If you like more support, opt for a firmer mattress. Generally speaking, memory foam is best for those who prefer softer surfaces and higher-density foams work best for those who prefer firmer options.

3) Consider your budget and mattress type

Finances And Budget

Before you even start shopping for your king-size mattress, decide on your budget and what type of mattress you are looking for. Consider the firmness level, memory foam or innerspring options and look into adjustable beds if that would be the best option for you. Different types of mattresses come with different price points, so make sure to do your research and know what kind of mattress is within your budget before heading to the store.

4) Research mattress brands and retailers

Before you start the shopping process for a king-size mattress, take some time to research the different mattress brands and retailers in your price range. Find out which brands have good reviews, read actual customer feedback, look up popular models, and get an idea of what type of mattress will best fit your needs. Once you’ve done your research, then it will be time to head down to the store and test out the mattresses you’re considering.

5) Pay attention to reviews and warranties

Reviews are great for getting an idea of what other people think of a mattress without having to spend time testing them out yourself. With king-sized mattresses, pay attention to the ratings and reviews from customers who purchased frames or foundations in addition to their mattress. Also, be sure to read the warranty information that comes with the mattress you’re interested in buying. Many warranties void themselves if you don’t use certain frames or foundations with the mattress, so make sure you understand your options before making a purchase.
