10 Things To Consider Before Buying a Bed

There’s more to consider than just mattress type and price when buying a bed. Remember, you’ll spend more time on your bed than any other piece of furniture in your home. Because of this, spending a little time researching your options will benefit to your overall comfort and well-being for years to come. So, before buying a bed, consider the following:

Customer Service

There’s a reason why some brands are more well-known than others. Look for trusted brands that have great quality products and great customer support. Before jumping into bed with a mattress company, it’s important to check their contact options, hours of operation, and how responsive they are to your initial questions. Some companies, even have a chat box, so you can directly ask a company representative your questions in real time.

Customer Reviews

Buying a mattress is no different from buying anything else. Before making any decisions, be sure to read customer reviews. Scrolling through different reviews, you might be pleasantly surprised to find someone with the same issue or concern you have, raving about what works for them. For example, someone with lower back pain might go into details about how a memory foam mattress compares to different types of beds they’ve tried in the past. You can also get a glimpse at other customer’s buying experience and get a sense of how the company you’re thinking of buying from will treat you.

Quality and Price

Another thing to consider is the quality and price of the mattress. Make sure you save enough money to invest in a good mattress that can provide comfortable sleep, joint and back health. The quality of a mattress is directly proportional to its price, however it does not always imply that all quality mattresses are expensive. New affordable options like the highly rated, Kyvno gel-cooling memory foam mattress paired with an adjustable base are often competitively priced or even cheaper than more basic options from name brand counterparts. In fact, it’s been found that, online mattresses can typically afford to use higher-quality materials and offer prices cheaper than in-store counterparts, from saving so much on their business overhead

What’s Included

When buying a bed, it’s important to know exactly what comes bundled with your mattress. Some companies exclusively offer a mattress-in-a-box. Sometimes this is misleading when the product is shown in a bedframe with pillows and sheets. Be sure to read the fine print to know exactly what you’re paying for, rather than spending extra money only to discover there is a missing piece you thought was included.

Free Shipping

Delivery is another key factor to consider. Why pay for shipping on the best sleep of your life when you can have your mattress shipped directly to your door for free? Shipping costs of a mattress can sneak up on you and make a big difference in your final total. When comparing company prices, the total cost including shipping should be factored into your decision.

Ease of Purchase 

Elevating convenience to a whole new level, online mattress companies make the often-frustrating process of mattress shopping easier than ever before. Flexible and convenient, online shopping enables you to browse from the comfort of your home, whenever you want. Shopping is no longer dictated by mere store hours and there’s no sales pressure or haggling required for the best price.

Ease of Assembly

Many online mattress companies compress and roll the mattress to fit it into a box, and ship it right to your door. If the mattress arrives rolled into a box, it’ll be easier for you to transport into your bedroom. Unboxing can be as easy as 1-2-3. To confirm the ease of assembly, check for unboxing/assembly videos and reviews from previous customers. 

Satisfaction Guarantee (The longer the trial the better)

Rest easy with a longer trial period. It’s super important to try a mattress in your own home because the only way to know it’s comfortable is by sleeping on it yourself, night after night. For example, when you have a 120 Day Sleep Satisfaction Guarantee, and for whatever reason, you decide you don’t love your new mattress, you can return it for a full refund within that timeframe.  To give yourself enough time to truly test and adjust to your new bed, it’s best to purchase from a company that offers a trial of at least 100 days or more.  Remember, the longer the trial the better.

Return Process 

Returning a mattress can sometimes require restocking or shipping fees and, if you really strike out, sometimes both. Be sure to consider companies that offer fast and easy return policies and free return pickups, over those that do not. The last thing you want after realizing you bought the wrong bed is to face a challenging return process!


Needless to say, the longer the warranty, the better! Always consider how long a company is guaranteeing the life of its mattress, base or parts. This is particularly important for adjustable beds with mechanical parts. Over time, it’s possible for a piece or part to stop working correctly so it’s practical to consider the coverage and duration of the warranty.

Buying a mattress isn’t always an easy task, but it’s an investment worth doing your research on. Spending time doing your homework on the bed-buying process will be worth it in the long run!
