In life, there are those who follow the rules…and then there are the rebels. (Bet you didn’t think that buying a mattress would give you an opportunity to be a revolutionary, but, then again, sometimes life has a way of surprising us!) If you are searching for the perfect mattress, make sure you know the rules of the game before you shop. Of course, there are always rules you absolutely need to follow, but sometimes some rules are meant to be broken.
Here are the top five mattress rules you should break:
Replace your mattress every 10 years.
Don’t always do what you’re told! While 8-10 years is the average lifespan of most mattresses, it isn’t an absolute hard and fast rule to replace your mattress once per decade. To determine whether you need to purchase a new mattress, check in with your body. Have you been sleeping soundly? Do you awaken with any aches or pains is your sleep? Are you disturbed often by your partner’s tossing and turning? Ten years might be a good rule of thumb–especially for a mattress you’ve been sleeping on every night for years–but only you can be the judge.
Flip your mattress every 6 months.
While innerspring mattress manufacturers recommend flipping and rotating your mattress every few months, Nuvanna mattresses–like all memory foam mattresses–are completely hassle-free. Our products are made using a patented system with each layer thoughtfully engineered from top to bottom. Made with gel particles that disperse heat, our first layer provides cooling comfort. The middle section of our mattresses is made for motion absorption, while the final foundation offers progressive support to avoid the “quicksand” feeling found in some other memory foam mattresses.
Always buy a box spring.
We can’t speak for all mattresses out there, but the Nuvanna mattress requires no special treatment whatsoever. You can use it with your existing box spring, flat on the floor, with a slatted base, on a flat platform, or on an adjustable bed. Be sure to check with your manufacturer for the specifics–your warranty could be considered null and void if you don’t situate your mattress on their recommended base.
Only buy from brands with showrooms.
Traditionally, the mattress industry has always maintained brick-and-mortar stores. And, while it’s nice to get the feel of a product before you purchase it, the massive overhead costs associated with operating stores, shipping inventory, and managing staff are, unfortunately, passed on to you as the consumer. We wanted to give you the same opportunity to test your mattress before you commit, so, instead, we offer a 90-day trial to every single Nuvanna customer. Shipped straight to you from our manufacturing facility. No strings attached. No trip to the showroom required.
