Going shopping for cheap mattresses can be frustrating and confusing. In stores, the salesperson often tries to sell you for something you cannot afford, but you also do not want to buy something that is not comfortable or will not last all year round. If you are looking for a cheap mattress, either for a guest room or because you have a limited budget, look no further than BeautySleep. Buying a BeautySleep mattress should make your decision easy, because you can get not only a lot but also quality. Here are some frequently asked questions about discount mattresses that you should consider before you buy:
1 Why do mattresses cost so much?
Think about what is in a mattress: spools, foam, fabric, fire retardant material. A Queen mattress basically consists of thirty cubic feet of material. That is a lot of product in a small space. Let’s start with the spools: They’re made of molded steel. If you are not in the construction business or commodity trading, steel is expensive. The next layers are foams, these are petroleum products. When the price of gas and oil goes up, the price of foam goes up.
Fabrics alone are not expensive, but each mattress is still assembled and sewn by hand, which is quite a high labour cost. Finally, according to the law, every mattress sold in the USA must have a layer of fire retardant fibres to protect the sleeper in case of a house fire. This fiber is very expensive, but it is illegal to manufacture or sell a mattress without it. Finally, if you really take it apart, mattresses can be one of the cheapest products you own. Even if you buy a cheap queen set, say for $500, and only own it for six years, you pay twenty-two cents a day. If you compare this to a shirt or sweater you bought for $25, you would have to wear it a hundred and thirteen times to get the same value.
2. are all cheap mattresses of poor quality? How much do I have to spend to get a decent bed?
What really counts here is the exact price range. If you try to buy a king size set for $300, the quality won’t be as good. However, if you can raise the price up to $499 or so, you will get a decent BeautySleep mattress that is worth sleeping every night. If you can raise it up to $539, you get a great mattress with individually inserted coils, foam covered edge support and a ten-year warranty, made by BeautySleep. You don’t have to spend $1000 to get a great queen set, but plan on spending about $500 for something decent that will last at least eight years.
3. why do all cheap beds feel solid?
The first thing they take out of a mattress to reduce costs is the padding. The really cheap beds, which cost $300, have minimal padding between the sleeper and the coil system. This makes the bed feel very firm. Again, if you can increase your budget to around $539, BeautySleep has a Euro-Top mattress that feels great, has plenty of padding and provides excellent support.
