Buying a Mattress in Washington, DC – In Store vs. Online

Buying a mattress online has never been easier. Almost all top brands sell their offerings online. You can go through their vast catalogs at your own pace and have your mattress delivered anywhere in Washington, DC.

You can read online reviews based on expert opinions and customer experiences and do side-by-side comparisons of popular mattresses to find the one that best suits you.

The only downside is you don’t really know what you’re getting until it’s too late.

With offline testing in a brick and mortar store, you not only get to try your new mattress before you buy it but also have experienced staff to guide you through the entire ordeal. They help ensure you get the best sleeping experience regardless of your budget.

Some showrooms also have the added benefit of housing different mattress brands under one roof, so you don’t miss out on anything. They also offer sleep trials so you can test and compare all available options yourself.

Getting acquainted with the firmness and comfort levels of different mattresses in a store helps you make your choice according to your sleep preferences. This guarantees complete peace of mind as you don’t have to bother with returns and refunds in the future.

You can even take advantage of special store promotions or use discount coupons while checking out. If that’s not enough, you can save even more money by skipping doorstep delivery entirely and picking up the mattress in-store instead.

Now that you know the many benefits of brick and mortar mattress stores, here are some of our favorite destinations to try and buy mattresses in Washington, DC.
