Are Cheap King Size Mattresses An Option?
To help take some of the confusion out of buying a new mattress, Cheap Mattress Reviews was founded to provide you with consumer reviews of all the leading mattresses available today.
If you have your heart set on a King Size mattress because you and your partner have used one before and love the extra space, but your budget is limited, how do you go about buying cheap king size mattresses that are also going to last the distance?
Sometimes finding discount king sizes can be slightly problematical as retailers’ don’t always stock them and they have to be ordered in. Queen sizes are far more popular so retailers stock large quantities of them and you are more likely to get a bargain on a range that has, perhaps, undersold the expected amount. With king sizes you will probably have to shop around more.
Rather than going for a no-name brand and running the risk of buying something, probably not backed by a decent warranty, that may be a real dud of a mattress, you are better off taking the time to find a heavily discounted mattress from a recognized manufacturer. That means checking out all the local bedding stores, noting prices and models that feel comfortable to lie on for you and your partner (shop together and test the mattresses together as that is how you will be using it in reality), then hopping online and seeing if there are any reputable retailers who are offering discount prices on the items you are interested in. If you allow yourselves enough time you may get lucky like this.
If you are prepared to consider other alternative to the conventional mattresses you can now buy king size air mattresses that will give a standard mattress set a run for its money in terms of comfort and durability. They have come on in leaps and bounds in recent years; many are as high as a traditional bed these days and are easily inflated with built-in electric pumps. Of course air beds have the added advantage of being easy to control in terms of firmness – you get a softer surface by simply letting some air out!
