Tips on Getting a Well-Made, Cheap Queen Size Mattress
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.
You won’t see us recommending too many cheap, poorly-made mattresses on this site as they are can be a false economy, ending up as a sagging mess out in the yard gathering mould, after a year or two’s use. However there are certain circumstances where we can cut costs and opt for a lower-grade mattress and other situations where we can buy quality mattresses for bargain prices. This article looks at a possible strategy for getting hold of a cheap queen size mattress for your home.
The types of situations where we won’t necessarily need to spend big on a queen size mattress of utmost quality, comfort, support and durability will be low-use situations like those to be put in the basement for kids slumber parties or some guest rooms in houses that only get stay-over visitors a few times a year. These occasionally-used mattresses won’t need to stand up to the nightly wear and tear of a mattress in the master bedroom, so it’s often acceptable to pitch a bit lower on the pricing spectrum.
On the other hand, if you do need one of the queen size mattresses from an established manufacturer, with the associated guarantees of quality that come along with that, but are looking for the best possible price so that you can get great value for your money you might start by using some online resources.
There are plenty of quality sites from manufacturers, retailers and reviewers that will give you general buying tips, specific brand information and price guidelines, as well as opinions from people who’ve previously bought the items in question. Nowadays you have to dig deeper to find sort out the bona fide independent review sites from the ones that have been essentially hijacked by marketing companies to promote their brands, but it is still there if you go deep enough.
We suggest that you first specify your own basic requirements of what you expect from your mattress – comfort level, plush/firm finish, support level, robustness and how long you would like the mattress to last, ideally. Also how much would you like to spend? Knowing all of this will give you a benchmark to use, as you trawl through the mountains of information and misinformation out there. It may allow you to draw up a shortlist of “candidates” that you can begin looking at.
We would never recommend buying a mattress without testing it first unless you are sure of what you are getting. This will mean a trip to a bedding center. Make a note of the models that fit your expectations. You can then check online again and start searching for the best possible price from the retailers. Make sure that, before committing, you have checked the status and reputation of the retailer – do they provide a good ordering and payment process and do they deliver promptly and to the right addresses?! It’s no good getting your cheap queen size mattresses online at bargain prices if they end up driving you mad because of non-delivery.
