Last month I was asked that very question during a training session at the Kingsdown, Inc. mattress factory in Mebane, NC. Most people in the mattress industry will tell you that the selection of your mattress is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. I tend to agree. You spend 1/3rd of your life in bed, and the quality of sleep you receive has a significant impact on your health.
So how do you select the right mattress? Well, Kingsdown makes it pretty easy with their bedMATCH system. First, answer a few simple questions on the computer in our new Sleepland gallery and then lie on the test bed. In just a few minutes the bed takes 18 statistical measurements and over 1,000 calculations to determine the correct level of postural support for you. The computer will then provide you and your partner with color-coded individual recommendations, eliminating 80% of the mattress options. From there, we will show you a few MySide bed models so that you can determine your preferred level of comfort.
So I ask you ~ what is it worth for you to feel great every morning? Remember, you are not just purchasing a mattress; you are buying how you are going to feel every morning for the next 10 years of your life.
