Your body should tell you when it is time for a new mattress – but are you paying attention? If you regularly wake up feeling stiff or sore, or if you are not sleeping as well as you did a year ago, it might be time to replace what you are sleeping on. There are many factors to consider when buying a new mattress.
- Mattresses wear at different rates so the average lifespan of a mattress varies.
- The best way to know if it is time for you to replace your mattress is to consider your personal comfort level, lifestyle, and changes in your body.
- Changes in lifestyle and age can affect your need for support or comfort preferences in a mattress.
Clues its time for a new mattress.
If a simple check of your body and lifestyle isn’t enough, consider checking your mattress twice a year for wear and ask yourself these specific questions.
- Are you sleeping better or worse than you were a year ago?
- Are you waking up with back pain or feeling stiff or sore?
- Would a new mattress improve your sleep?
- Are you having your best night’s sleep someplace other than your own bed?

A Word About Box Springs
- Low-Profile Box Springs: Occasionally a standard height box spring (8″) is too high for some of today’s thick mattresses. At 5 1/2″ the low profile box spring is a perfect fit for these situations. Both the semi-flex and modular box springs are available as low-profile models.
- Split Box Springs: We make 2-piece full sized and queen sized box spring for the occasion when a standard 1-piece box spring will not fit into the house. These box springs are split lengthwise. All 2-piece box springs require a 6 legged frame for support.
