Mattress Basics.

How to Tell If You Need a New Mattress: Mattresses are built to last, but if you are currently sleeping on a mattress that is more than 9 years old, chances are very good that it's time for a new one. Come see us when there is noticeable sag in the middle of the mattress or wherever you typically sleep.

Standard sizes: Twin: 39": x 75": Double: 54": x 75": Queen: 60": x 80": King: 78": x 80": CA King: 72": x 84":
 

Old Foundation Box or New Foundation Box: A new mattress sitting on top of an old foundation will only last 1/3 as long as it would if sitting on a new foundation. It's usually inexpensive to buy the entire set and its well worth your money. An old foundation can void your mattress warranty. Look for sales on mismatching sets if you don't care whether or not the foundation box matches the mattress. It's an easy way to save money on the foundation but still ensure that your new mattress will last as long as it can. When looking at a foundation, look for those with steel reinforcement. These will last longer, which will in turn make your mattress last longer.

Getting technical.

What You Need to Know About Coils: Most mattresses have metal coils in the mattress core. These coils are responsible for supporting your body and are very important to the comfort of your mattress. The number or coils corresponds to how much support it gives. Besides the number or coils, the gauge of coils also varies between mattresses. The gauge equals the number of coils of that size it would take to make an inch. Heavy gauge coils are thicker and generally offer more support. Light gauge coils are thinner and offer less support. It's important to try out a variety of mattresses and note what kind of support you prefer. Compare the number and gauge of coils when trying out mattresses to see what range you prefer.
Tip: Beware of mattresses with low coil counts but heavy gauges being represented as firm mattresses. That combination often quickly becomes lumpy and uncomfortable.

The Top Upholstery and Fabric Layers: Choose a pillow top if you want to feel like you are sleeping on a feather bed but still get the support of a solid mattress. If you prefer very firm mattresses, look for thin upholsteries that don't interfere with the support of the coils. The fabric that is used in the construction of the mattress is also very important in terms of comfort and price. You can choose mattresses with additional layers of wool, silk, foam and cotton. This can increase the comfort, but also increases the price. Look into your layers carefully and consult with a sales person. Sometimes, these extra layers of padding can be compressed and break down sooner than the springs, making your mattress feel concave or lumpy. Look for the right balance between comfort and price for you.

Non-Spring Mattresses: Memory foam mattresses can sometimes be less expensive than coil or spring mattresses, though the price can vary dramatically depending on the brand and quality. The foam molds to your body shape and is sensitive to your body weight and body heat. A great foam mattress can be wonderful to sleep on; a poor one of low quality can quickly break down and form permanent lumps or depressions, making them very uncomfortable. The heavier the foam, the more it will hold up over time.
