Are you in the market for a new bed? You may not have given it much thought, but you will likely need to get a new mattress as well. Mattresses are only good for a maximum of 8 years, so if you are changing out your bed set you probably also need to change out your mattress. Some people do not plan ahead and end up buying the mattress separately from their local mattress store, and at much higher prices and delivery fees.
Instead, you should get your mattress when you order your new bed. By getting your mattress and bed from the same furniture brand you can be sure that you have the best mattress for the bed you have chosen. For example, if you want a bedroom furniture set by Ashley, you should look for an Ashley mattress sale at the same online furniture store where you found the bed.
Here are a few of the benefits of getting your bed and mattress at the same time from the same place.
Get the right mattress for the right bed
While there are undoubtedly variations of mattresses available for the bed you have chosen, there are probably minimum recommendations for the size and type of mattress used for the bed. A side sleeper might want a firmer coil mattress, while a back sleeper who likes to wallow in blankets and pillows will prefer a memory foam mattress. But in either case, the mattress needs to be of the right height and dimensions.
You are more likely to get the right mattress for your new bed when you take the online furniture store’s recommendations. Most online stores offer mattress recommendations as you are ordering the bed, and all furniture stores both online and brick and mortar make it easy to talk to an expert to get the right mattress for you.
A mattress alone isn’t a large enough purchase to warrant financing from a furniture store, whether online or in person. Unless you are getting multiple mattresses from the same mattress shop, you aren’t going to be able to get any financing other than using your own credit cards. Even furniture stores that offer financing require a minimum purchase amount that a single mattress is not likely to meet.
But when you buy your bed and mattress from the same place, you are more likely to meet those minimum purchase amounts. That means that you can qualify for financing for your entire order, including the mattress. This is true of both online and brick-and-mortar furniture stores.
Free delivery is another item that can cost money if you buy the mattress separately. Your local mattress shop is bound to offer delivery at a steep cost, and an online mattress store might also require a minimum purchase to get free shipping. As a general rule, the only way to get your mattress with free delivery is to buy it with the rest of your bedroom furniture. Getting it from the same furniture brand ensures that the complete bed will arrive at the same time.
