How to Choose the Perfect Mattress

Thank you to Raymour & Flanigan for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

Today, I am sharing some tips on how to choose the perfect mattress!

We recently made some updates to our bedroom, which you can see here.

We learned a lot while shopping at Raymour and Flanigan on how to choose the perfect mattress.

First and foremost, the most important thing when choosing a mattress is to shop at a store with reputable brands. These brands create mattresses that are tried and true so you know you are getting the perfect mattress. This is why we chose to shop at Raymour and Flanigan!

When considering a new mattress, remember, you have this for 10 years so you want to invest in something that is perfect for you!

When we were shopping at Raymour and Flanigan, Brandi was working with us to find the perfect mattress. She started by having us test out all different mattresses. She had us lay in the position that we sleep. John Paul and I are both side sleepers so we laid on each mattress for a couple minutes in that position to see which mattress felt the most comfortable.

While we were testing each mattress, we had to take inventory of our head, neck, shoulders, mid back, lower back, hips and knees. What this means is, you want to be sure there are no pressure points on any of these body parts. If there is something that is uncomfortable, share it with your consultant so they can suggest a different mattress.

There are so many amazing technologies to help with many different sleep issues such as tossing and turning, snoring, or getting hot while sleeping. We were able to find a mattress that is cooling and our base can raise up and down to help us sleep more soundly.

After testing many mattresses and determining that we preferred a softer/pillowtop mattress, we chose the King Koil Natural Response Select Leighton Plush Pillowtop King Mattress. We love it and have been sleeping on it for a few weeks now. It is so comfortable and we feel so rested when we wake up in the morning.

The best part of the whole bed update is the base that we chose! It’s adjustable so we can raise our head and feet. We can almost sit at a 90 degree angle. It also has a zero gravity setting to relieve tension in the head and feet. We have it set to a comfortable position for us after playing around with it for a bit.

We also chose the Begley bed frame. It is upholstered with the prettiest curve details. We love it! It’s a lot smaller from our last bed frame which is what we wanted. It is modern but still fits the farmhouse vibe we love!

Lastly, don’t forget about pillows! We chose new pillows that are much more comfortable and don’t place strain on our necks and shoulders. We again tested out several pillow types and both John Paul and I chose the Balance 2.0 pillows . We love them!

We had so much fun shopping at Raymour and Flanigan for our new bed and mattress. Everyone there was so helpful, especially Brandi! The delivery was so smooth and easy! The delivery men took away our old mattress and box spring too! So amazing!

Check out Raymour and Flanigan for your new mattress and bed! They are so helpful when choosing the perfect mattress!

We could not be happier with our new bed, mattress, and pillows!  As parents, we could always use a good night’s sleep, am I right?!
