How to choose a mattress in Tallahassee

skyline

If tossing and turning in bed has become a familiar routine, a better mattress will help you get a better night’s rest.

Research shows that medium-firm mattresses reduce lower back pain because they contour to your body and keep your spine aligned. A soft mattress, on the other hand, hugs your body and is a better choice for side sleepers because it cushions their pressure points. A firm mattress gives you the feeling of sleeping on the mattress rather than sinking into it and works best for stomach sleepers or heavier individuals.

In addition to different levels of firmness, mattresses are available in multiple styles constructed from different materials. Like firmness, no one type is best for everyone, but knowing the features of each helps you decide which is best for you.

Mattress types in Tallahassee

Mattress type Description Best for... Average cost for a queen-size mattress
Innerspring/coil mattress Made with metal springs evenly distributed throughout the mattress to support your body All sleepers $950
Memory foam mattress Contains several layers of foam and gradually contours to your body while sleeping Side and back sleepers $900
Latex mattress Similar to a memory foam mattress but constructed from latex instead of synthetic materials Side and back sleepers $2,000
Hybrid mattress This mattress has various layers constructed of different materials, such as foam covering an innerspring core All sleepers $1,650

Bed in a box vs. in-store mattresses

Bed-in-a-box mattresses sold by online mattress stores have become a popular choice among consumers. These mattresses are delivered to your doorstep and arrive compressed inside a fairly small box. They expand over several hours after you unpack them.

Mattress-in-a-box businesses have been winning customer's hearts because of their convenience, budget-friendly prices and delivery speed. However, many people still prefer to buy mattresses in-store because of the range of brands brick-and-mortar stores offer and the ability to test the mattress before buying it.

What is the average mattress price in Tallahassee?

The average price for a queen-size mattress in Tallahassee is around $1,000. While online mattresses tend to be cheaper than those bought at a brick-and-mortar store, costs still vary widely — from less than $200 to $5,000 or more — depending on size, materials, durability and height. A luxury mattress tends to last much longer than a cheap mattress, and you should prepare to spend at least $600 for a quality mattress.

Old mattress removals, shipping costs and in-home assembly can all add to the final price. Some mattresses require a box spring or foundation, which usually cost between $75 and $200. Other mattresses, such as memory foam mattresses, do not require a box spring if used with a platform bed that provides adequate support.

Another way to save on mattresses is to shop in the late winter or early spring when retailers make room for new models. Many companies also offer sales during holidays, such President’s Day and Labor Day weekends and the Fourth of July.

How to buy a mattress in Tallahassee

When looking for the best mattress in Tallahassee, there are several factors to consider to ensure you'll be happy with your purchase. Here are some of the most important:

  • Customer reviews: Looking at what previous customers say about the mattress is a good way to see if the company has good customer service and honors its warranty.
  • Recommendations from your doctor or physical therapist: If you’re purchasing a mattress to help alleviate back pain or joint aches, it’s helpful to talk to someone familiar with your unique situation.
  • Warranty policies: Make sure the company stands behind its products and ask if you’re responsible for shipping on a warranty claim. Most companies offer at least a 10-year warranty.
  • Return policies and trial periods: It takes more than a few nights to decide if a mattress is the best fit for you over time. Many companies offer trial periods of 100 days or more, during which you can return the mattress at no charge if you’re not satisfied.

The Federal Trade Commission also has mattress shopping tips for the consumer. You should also be confident that what you are purchasing is what was described to you. Florida's Bedding Label Act states what information labels must have and where they should be located.
