Improving Sleep With the Right Mattress

A better night’s sleep can be accomplished with a good mattress.

To help customers make that life-changing decision, Guler’s Appliance and Mattress, 4435 E. State St., has done most of the work ahead of time by selecting the best mattresses from the best manufacturers at all price levels, says Andy Guler, vice president.

Guler’s Sleep Center opened about two years ago after the store moved to its current 12,000-square foot location.

“Our customers have been asking us to sell mattresses, but we didn’t have the space, and now we do,” Guler says.

A person’s sleep positions, body type and personal preferences for firmness, feel, and materials all play a part in choosing the right mattress. Regardless of the cost, most mattresses need to be replaced every eight to 10 years.

It’s time to go shopping for a mattress if you are not getting a good night’s sleep, wake up with aches and pains, or you are just not comfortable in your bed. If the mattress is sagging and/or leaves an imprint where you sleep, the mattress is losing support and needs to be replaced.

Many people who snore, have sleep apnea, back problems, or other health problems can benefit from an adjustable base, which can raise and lower the feet and head, Guler adds. A sleep option he sees growing in popularity is the split king, which consists of two side-by-side twin mattresses, so each person can have their own mattress and base while sleeping in the same bed. The store also has a clearance section with high-end mattresses priced at deep discounts because they are not the newest models.

“The best way to buy a mattress is to come in person, take your time, try the mattresses, and see what feels best to you,” Guler says.
