Buying a mattress can be a challenging but rewarding process. However, once customers take their product home there are 3 major things that we see people do wrong the most often.
Number 1: Having bed slats installed upside down.
The most common complaint we get on a new mattress is that the mattress seems uneven or rolls in. In all cases this is because people have installed their curved bed slats upside down. Not only should you not be using a bed frame with curved slats, but in reality all mattresses should be used on a proper foundation or bed base that is actually designed to provide a flat sleeping surface for your mattress.
Number 2: Ordering the wrong size / Thinking there is too much gap between the bed frame and the mattress
Check your size! Ordering the wrong size mattress is a costly expense. If the courier needs to redeliver your mattress you’re looking at transport charges of at least $150, more if you need two people or the mattress taken upstairs.
It’s common to have a gap between your bed frame and mattress, it is part of the design. Normally bed frame manufacturers allow 2-3cm on each side and up to 5-10cm top and bottom of a bed frame. This is to account for different styles of bedding across Europe, America and Australia. American bed frames have huge gaps to allow for box bases and extra thick bedding.
Number 3: Dragging your new mattress on the ground
Self explanatory. The plastic bag your mattress comes in is just to protect it from dust. Any dragging on a rough surface will cause immediate tearing to your mattress fabric

Top 10 mistakes when choosing a mattress
When choosing a mattress there is a lot more to the eye than it seems. Here are the top mistakes people make when choosing a mattress:
- Choosing a mattress for someone else.
- Choosing a mattress without knowing your size and just assuming you have a queen.
- Choosing a mattress but not choosing the matching ensemble base – yes, bases do wear out with time.
- Just touching the mattress with your hand without lying on it.
- Sitting on the edges of the mattress.
- Choosing via appearance and not the comfort of the mattress.
- Being engulfed in marketing hype over new materials.
- Choosing the best value without regard to comfort
- Choosing a mattress that is too high
- Choosing a mattress that is too heavy.
When looking to buy a mattress, there are so many different options to consider. Walking into a showroom to ‘try’ each one for a brief moment can be overwhelming and could also make your choice of mattress even more complicated. Furthermore, you probably already know that sleep is important for a happy, functional life and that the mattress you are about to buy is fundamental to the quality of your sleep. So, how do you choose the perfect one out of the sea of mattresses available?
Firstly, you should approach your mattress purchase with an open mind. While it’s good to have preferences, you don’t always have to choose the same mattress type that you’ve had in the past. By the 7-year mark, your old mattress would no longer be supporting you adequately and during this time, your body would have changed a lot. Likewise, new mattress technologies are constantly entering the market and existing technologies are improved year after year. As a result, mattresses are being increasingly tailored to suit every consumer’s individual needs when it comes to comfort and sleep.
Another thing to consider is that your new mattress may take some time to get used to. Your body is used to sleeping on your old mattress and your new one feels weird, but that doesn’t mean your new one isn’t a good fit just yet. Give your body some time to adjust to the new feel – it may be exactly the change you were looking for! However, if it’s not… some companies – including us at Bedding Warehouse – offer a grace period of 30 days or so (more details here), within which you can exchange the mattress if it doesn’t appear to be suitable for you.
This brings us to the last factor when buying a bed – having the right people helping you make the decision. The right customer service can greatly simplify your choices and help you find the perfect bed for you. Retail staff should prioritise your health, quality sleep and comfort over anything else and should listen to what you like and dislike in regards to your comfort level. A good company will also offer that previously-mentioned grace period, giving you peace of mind upon purchase and help you sleep even better at night.
In summary, when choosing your bed– do your research, pick the right company to buy from and have an awesome sleep!
