Mattress Buying Guide

mattress buying guide

Are you planning to buy a mattress for your bed? Congratulations, you have made it to the best mattress buying guide on the internet that will help you to choose the best mattress online. Finding a quality mattress online is not an easy task. With companies like IKEA, Costco, Casper, and others, the Canadian furniture market has become saturated with all sorts of mattresses. To lure customers, many companies provide an extra warranty on mattresses or pitch mattress protector plans. We highly recommend not falling for such offers but buying a high-quality product from a genuine supplier.  

Wholesale Furniture Brokers is one of the best mattress sellers in Canada. They offer high-quality, durable mattresses which come with 10 years of warranty. Along with that, the customer also receives a “90-day sweet dream” guarantee period which is one of a kind in the furniture world.

Before announcing the best mattress as of 2018, let’s us jump into the types of mattresses you can buy online.

Types of Mattresses:

Traditional Innerspring and Coil Mattresses

Constructed with a box spring base, metal coils for support, and layers of padding for comfort, coil, and innerspring mattresses remain the most commonly purchased mattress type. They are affordable, accessible, and provide the most ease of movement. However, their comfort and support have a shorter life-span (5-7 years) than many of the foam options. Many people who share a bed with a restless sleeper complain about the motion transfer, and every adjustment their partner makes can be disruptive to their sleep.

Memory Foam Mattresses

Memory foam is a relatively recent technology in the mattress industry and is constructed with special materials that contour to the shape of the sleeper in addition to ensuring even weight distribution along its surface. The upper memory foam layers can vary in thickness for comfort and are coupled with a firmer base foam for support with an above average longevity (10-12 years). Some varieties of memory foam are gel-infused or designed with air channels to act as coolants to reduce body heat and maintain an optimal sleeping temperature. Our Rest Therapy brand, as well as the Restwell and Eco Planet brands we offer, is all antimicrobial, resistant to dust mites, and prohibit motion transfer. If you suffer from back problems or other body aches and pains, this is a great option for you because it supports your natural alignment and reduces pressure point tensions.

Latex Mattresses

Both the core support and comfort layers of these mattresses are constructed with a combination of natural, and synthetic or engineered latex foams. Although they are often a more expensive option, they are extremely durable (15+ years) in addition to being eco-friendly and hypoallergenic. Like memory foam, they offer great therapeutic support by promoting natural body alignment and contouring, as well as reducing motion transfer to ensure optimal rest and comfort while sleeping.

Apart from these mattress types, you can also buy bamboo mattresses, crib mattress, and hybrid mattresses.

Mattress Sizes:
