Tired of Mattress Shopping?


Are you tired of mattress shopping yet?

You’re a highly intelligent person. You do your research, you ask around, and you try to be well-prepared before you go on a shopping trip for a major household purchase. Mattress shopping is no exception. You’ve read a few blog posts, studied a few mattress retailers’ sites, and have asked a few friends and family members where they bought their last mattress. Maybe you’ve even attended our free public Saturday class, How To Shop for a Mattress

You have a sense there’s more to a good night’s sleep than simply picking the mattress with the prettiest cover or the one with the word Deluxe in its name.

So let me ask you something: are you tired of mattress shopping yet?

If so, let us boil it down for you. Forget everything you’ve ever heard or learned about shopping for a mattress — yep, even from us.

In a pinch — with no time, patience, or savvy — here are the ONLY TWO RULES you’ll ever need to know before buying a mattress.

2 easy rules for mattress shopping

  1. Buy a two-sided mattress. Hands down, buying a two-sided mattress is a better value. Because you can flip and rotate it (and you should, 3-4 times a year), you can evenly distribute the natural wear pattern over time. This’ll give your two-sided mattress a life up to three times longer than any fancy ‘can’t flip’ mattress du jour.
  2. Buy by weight. In short, how heavy is the mattress? This is the caveman’s way of judging mattress quality, and you know what? It works! If the mattress is as light as an empty peanut shell, you’re buying synthetic pouf. A heavier mattress, regardless of thickness or thinness, is going to be good because it’s going to be sturdy and durable. A heavy mattress is not a bad thing — quite the opposite. Heaviness probably means strong quality coils (in the case of a well-built innerspring coil mattress) or real, natural fibers in the core (i.e. botanical latex, cotton, wool, down or feathers). If you’re flipping your two-sided mattress correctly, there’ll be no strain to your back whatsoever. Heavy does not equal awkward.

There you go. Two easy rules for how to shop for a mattress. We’re keeping it simple for you so you can get in, get out, and get on with life — one good sleep at a time.

We only sell two sided mattresses. Here's Why:

A 2-sided mattress you can flip and rotate is better for your body and your wallet! Flippable mattresses last up to 3 times as long as ‘can’t flip’ ones. It’s simply untrue that 2-sided mattresses are no longer being made. Here at Bedrooms & More Seattle, they’re all we sell — because it’s what is best for our customers and the environment.

New “Dual System Headboards”

We are in the process of changing many of our headboards to be both “K Series” and “P Series” capable. The headboards will have both sets of holes for using either way. The new headboards will be marked “Dual System Headboard” on the boxes. This process will take time for all sizes and finishes to be available and will be gradual, as the new versions come in and the old version get depleted. We are telling you now so that you can be aware of what the “Dual System Headboard” terminology means when you see it on the box or in our catalog. The list of headboards that will be switched to the new “Dual System” are listed below. Of course, you will need to order the correct rails and footboards depending on whether the customer wants “K” or “P” Series. The new “K Series” height allows for the use of the bigger bunk bed drawers and/or trundle and “K Series” footboards already have the privacy panel built in. We are also making the Folding Footboard Bench Footboard “Dual System”. If you need one of the new items to be “Dual System” (for “K Series”), you will need to specifically request it until all old versions are gone, to make sure you get the new version.
