Getting married brings many changes into your life. Some of them are going to take a little getting used to. With so many things changing, is this a good time to bring a new mattress into the mix?
One of the changes you’ll make as a newly married couple is the change of sharing a bed with another person night after night. For some couples, that is a big adjustment — especially if you’re each accustomed to mattresses that offer different levels of firmness, support, and comfort.
This might be an excellent time to consider your options for purchasing the best mattress for couples. While you’re at it, perhaps you should attempt to find a little middle ground when it comes to the size, firmness, and construction of the mattress you buy as well. Here are a few things you should consider when you do buy a mattress as a couple.
Plan Your Budget
A mattress is a long-term investment in good sleep. The average traditional mattress lasts 7 to 10 years (a latex mattress lasts 20 to 25 years or more). You spend seven to eight hours a night in bed. Getting a good night’s sleep not only enhances mood for a happier marriage, but it is also essential for your good health. Plan to invest in a quality mattress as the perfect foundation for a happy, healthy life together.
Discuss Your Options
There are many different types of mattresses on the market today. Natural latex, memory foam, air mattresses, and standard box spring mattresses are common. It’s important to listen to each other and decide what’s best for the two of you. If you can’t agree on a specific firmness or level of comfort, consider a natural latex mattress as it can easily be customized to individual preferences.
Consider Your Location
No matter what kind of mattress you purchase, you will have to get it into your home or apartment somehow. Some mattress manufactures offer free shipping and delivery, others charge for the service. Delivery also means different things to different manufacturers. Figure out if delivery is curbside, inside, or includes complete setup and removal of your existing mattress. If you have stairs, for instance, it might be worth paying extra for delivery and setup.
Keep the Planet in Mind
More and more people are making greener choices. Chances are you, as a couple, have serious concerns on the imprint you leave behind on the planet. Some mattress choices are much greener than others are. Pay attention to the materials used in your mattress, petrochemicals, off gassing, and recyclability of the mattress you select.
There are many decisions you’ll make in your life together. Choosing a mattress is a great place to start.
