How Mattress Shopping Can Be Fun

Did you know that you spend 1/3 of your life in bed? That’s longer than you spend on any other piece of furniture in your household! Sleep plays a crucial role in our daily lives, and continual sleep deprivation can cause a host of health problems.

In recognition of the vital contribution sleep makes to the quality of our lives, Furnitureland South recently opened the Sleepland gallery with a vast selection from name-brand bedding vendors in a relaxing and FUN environment! Check out the fish tank bed at the front of the gallery and have your photo taken and uploaded to Facebook for a photo contest!

While many people think of mattress shopping as drudgery, we at Furnitureland South have tried to make it fun. First, our sales associates take an attentive and personal approach with each customer. We also add energy to the experience by offering the industry’s latest technology in sleep. If someone in your family is a technology buff, they will love the iPads located next to each mattress. Pricing, construction features and benefits and educational videos about each mattress are just a touch away!

Before you set out to shop for mattresses, you should ask yourself a few questions and think about your sleep needs. Do you get less than 8 hours of sleep each night? Studies show that depriving your body of this necessary recuperative time can put you at a higher risk for diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and an overall decrease in concentration and memory retention.

The first step in getting quality sleep is evaluating your mattress.  Ask yourself these questions to determine if it is time to consider buying a new mattress.

  1. Is my current set 8 or more years old?
  2. Do I wake up in the morning feeling stiff or sore?
  3. Do I wake up often during the night and toss and turn to try and find a comfortable position?
  4. Are there noticeable lumps or valleys in the mattress?

If you answered “yes” to any of these, then the time to purchase a new sleep set is now!

The Sleepland gallery at Furnitureland South is conveniently located right within the front door of the Mart building (under the world’s largest highboy)! If you are one of millions of Americans who are sleep deprived, you can stop off at Furnitureland’s very own Starbucks café which is just outside the entrance of the sleep gallery (somewhat ironically). Once you’re in the gallery, Sleep Specialists are on hand to assist you and your Sales Associate in making the mattress buying process a lot easier.

Sleepland is a series of mattress shops arranged by brand.

If your focus and performance during the day seem to be lacking, or if you are experiencing pain, your old mattress may be to blame! Postponing buying a new sleep set will only exacerbate these problems. Come visit Furnitureland South’s brand-new Sleepland gallery for an informative and FUN shopping experience that you won’t forget!
