If you feel that it’s time to replace your old, lumpy mattress, then we have some good news for you — you can now find a fabulous, new mattress online without ever leaving your sofa.
Over the past few years, many luxury mattress websites have popped up, and most of them offer great options. Prices online also tend to be much better than what you’ll find at your local mattress shop. Plus, you simply can’t beat the convenience of having your new mattress shipped right to your front door for you.
But before you take the plunge and buy, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide to help you figure out what makes the best sense for you, your budget and your family.
Do Your Research
Before your click that “order” button, you’ll need to spend a bit of time doing some research and figuring out which mattress and company are the best fit for your needs.
First Stop: The Mattress Store
If you already know what sort of mattress you prefer (level of firmness, material, etc.), then you’re already a step ahead. However, if you’re unhappy with your current mattress and unsure of what you might like to have on your bed next, then it will pay down the road if you take a visit to a local mattress shop or two and get a good sense of exactly what type of mattress you prefer. So, you may just have to get up from your sofa after all!
There are a variety of online companies to choose from when ordering your mattress, and many of them offer similar options. It’s worth it to spend a bit of time on each website in order to get a sense of what the company is like, what their manufacturing process is and what sort of service you might expect. Most of the sites offer online chat customer service so you can get all of your questions answered. Here’s a quick summary of some great quality mattress companies:
Saatva mattresses are built with a distinctive high quality feature known as ‘coil on coil’ construction. The lower coil unit offers a connected hourglass shaped steel support base. The top coil unit features a luxurious individually wrapped coil system that contours and responds perfectly to your body, eliminating most motion transfer. Each individually wrapped coil is separate to ensure that the rest of the bed will not be disturbed by the movement of surrounding coils. This construction coupled with an advanced euro pillow top, can only be found in ultra premium mattresses.
A great combination of soft and firm. Because it’s made without the heat-trapping viscoelastic chemicals used in memory foam, Nolah sleeps cooler, provides better pressure relief and is much more durable than even the best memory foam and latex mattresses.
Offers a luxury premium-quality all foam mattress with a unique copper infused memory foam which helps to provide as much comfort and support as possible.
The Avocado Green Mattress green mattresses combine luxurious, 100% natural cushioning with a zoned, internal, pressure-point support system. This premium approach ensures that your hips, shoulders and back are always in proper alignment. It also makes an Avocado Green Mattress ideal for adult back, stomach and side sleepers, yet supportive enough for growing children and teens.
Matsleep mattresses have a balanced comfort, support and feel. Since, the firmness range is critically important, the Matsleep mattress reacts to your body in a way that feels comfortable from all angles. They consist of dual foam layers that can provide a consistent level of firmness and comfort for all sleepers.
The luxury mattress provides contouring for quality cooling, conformance and firm support with a plush removable and washable cover designed to complement the conforming memory foam. It consists of responsive memory foam, gel infused memory foam, and a total body support core.
Offers premium quality natural latex, memory foam and specialty mattresses, along with bases, toppers, and bedding as well!
Offers a proprietary “Hyphen-Comfort” layer of foam which provides temperature control and adaptive, variable luxury support.
Offers an elegant 3-tiered mattress design that pairs the handcrafted look and feel of a quilted mattress with the rewards of gel and memory foams. And also a 5-tiered hybrid which unites sophisticated innerspring and specialty foam components, to provide unbeatable support, comfort and breathability. The quilted top panel gives an authentic handcrafted look and feel.
Most of these Premium quality mattress companies ship their mattresses in vacuum-packed boxes, making installation quick, easy and hassle-free.
Make the Most of Your Trial Period
One of the best perks of ordering your mattress online is that if you don’t love your mattress after the trial period, you can return it. Be sure to keep track of how long your trial period lasts, and make your final decision before your trial ends. I would suggest adding a reminder to your phone as well as an appointment on your calendar to be safe.
If you use additional items on your bed, like a feather bed or egg crate, make sure you have them on hand so you can try out your mattress and experience it like normal. If you have a partner, make sure they’re able to sleep on the mattress as much as possible, too, to make sure that you both approve (or disapprove) of it.
Dealing With Returns + Warranties
If you order a mattress from any of the online companies above and you realize that you don’t like it, you can get a full refund (as long as you’re still within your trial period). Check with each company to find out exactly what’s involved in processing a return. Several of the companies ask that you donate your mattress as part of your return process, and they’ll even help you organize the donation.
With generous 10- to 15-year warranties, you’ll most likely be covered should anything happen to your mattress in the future. Just make sure to save all of your documents and receipts, and don’t forget to just lay back and enjoy your new luxury sleep!
