More On Our Mattress Reviews Philosophy

We receive free products to review and participate in affiliate programs. See our disclosure page for more information.

We wanted to go through a couple of main points related to how we think you should read our mattress reviews and ultimately come up with a decision on what to buy.  Doing extensive research is something we definitely recommend, but there are certain things to look out for when looking at ratings and reviews.  Here are the things you should know.

We Keep It Simple

Over time, we have learned that the vast majority of people don’t really care about the exact technical details of all the mattress brands.  They just want someone to provide them the main takeaways that can help them make a buying decision without having to research all the possible products in detail themselves.  That’s what we aim to provide.  If you want extremely detailed information, feel free to fill out our contact form and we will provide that information to you.  On our website, however, we look to keep things as simple as possible.

Different People Have Different Preferences

No matter what one person says about a mattress, some people will continue to have strong preferences for one type of mattress over another.  Whether it’s latex, memory foam, or innerspring, I’ve seen people strong preferences of one type over another.  Keep that in mind when you see someone saying a certain type of mattress is amazing.  If you don’t like that type of mattress, then you probably won’t like that specific brand that much.

Don’t Just Take Our Opinion

We will try to simplify everything about each brand and provide our overall opinion. However, I would read more reviews so that you can get a better picture of how people like the different brands in question overall.  Each individual’s circumstances and tastes are different, and that’s especially true with mattresses.  We suggest reading as many reviews and ratings as possible, so that you can have full confidence in your decision.

Do Lots Of Research On Your Own

We will be putting together mattress buying guide information over time.  We think it’s wise for you to read as much about the different types of mattresses (latex, memory foam, innerspring, air, etc.) as possible, and then think hard about what your individual needs and likes are.  Are you a side sleeper?  What is your budget, and what is the maximum price you are willing to pay?  Are you especially sensitive to a mattress that doesn’t sleep really cool?  It’s best you ask yourself those questions before you start reading the individual reviews of each of the brands.  You will make a better informed decision and end up with much better sleep if you follow that timeline.
