There is nothing more frustrating than to buy your first suite of furniture to find that you have no mattress. Unfortunately, the mattress is not included with any bedroom furniture. However, that doesn’t mean you have to go find a mattress elsewhere. If you are properly prepared and know you will need a mattress, you can order it at the same time, and from the same place, as your furniture.
There are a lot of benefits to getting your mattress at the same time as your bed, especially when buying your new bed online.
Get mattress recommendations
The best online furniture stores offer recommendations for a mattress when you add the bed to your cart. The mattress recommended here is the one that is offered by the furniture store and found to be the most effective for that type of bed. While some beds do still require a box spring, most do not, resting the mattress instead of on a platform. This can go a long way toward determining what type of mattress you need to get.
If you’re not sure about what type of mattress you need, you can always chat with a sales associate. Even if you shop online, you should be able to chat with a sales associate to get your questions answered. They will be more than happy to help you because it means another sale.
Not sure how you’re going to pay for a new mattress? Depending on the type and quality of the mattress, it could cost almost as much as the bed itself. That’s a hefty sum to come up with on the fly, but it isn’t enough to get financing unless you do so with your own credit card. On the other hand, if you buy your mattress at the same time as the bed and other bedroom furniture you can get it included in the financing to lower your initial out-of-pocket costs.
Get free delivery
Most online furniture stores now offer free delivery to most areas. If you are able to get free delivery of your bedroom furniture, the mattress can be included in that shipment at no additional cost. If you buy the mattress separately from a separate mattress store you will likely have to pay for delivery as well.
Pay lower prices overall
Overall you will pay lower prices for a mattress when you use a one stop mattress shop with bedroom furniture. Whether you are buying from a brick-and-mortar furniture store or an online furniture retailer, you are always going to pay less when you buy more. Getting the mattress separately could cost quite a bit more than buying it at the same time as the bed for this reason alone. But you’ll also pay lower prices with furniture stores because they want to give you a reason to buy from them instead of the mattress store down the street (or on the web).
