Brand name beds are often expensive -- there's no denying that. In recent years, there have been a proliferation of off brand, non-branded beds that are very affordable and often sold through the Internet or through boutiques. Though these beds are far less costly, there are still some advantages to going with a known brand name.

1. Brands Come With Better Warranties

Many branded mattresses come with 10, 15, or even 20 year warranties. Though they may be expensive, they are guaranteed for a long time to come. Off brand mattresses tend to be more or less disposable. Though they may come with a 2 or 5 year warranty, they often don't come with a warranty at all. 

2. Brands Do More Research

One of the benefits of purchasing an expensive, brand name bed, is that you're purchasing from a brand that has invested in decades of research. Sleep studies, material studies, and safety studies have all been completed to create an inventory of mattresses that are ideally suited to a variety of sleepers. This is why off brand beds tend to be fairly simple -- such as a memory foam slab -- whereas brands have more complex sleep technology.

3. Brands Have a Wider Inventory of Options

Most unbranded mattresses come in maybe a few types. Brands, on the other hand, often have hundreds of different mattress styles which can also be customized depending on your personal sleep needs. Every sleeper is different and getting quality sleep is important for overall happiness. A branded mattress will make it easier for you to find a mattress that is perfect for you.

4. Brands Develop a Reputation For a Reason

A brand is simply a company that has been known to have a similar product. Off brand mattresses would have similar reputations if their product was strong enough and more well-known. When you get a brand name mattress, you know exactly what you're getting in terms of quality and consistency. When you purchase an off brand mattress, there is no such guarantee.

There's a reason why most mattresses are expensive. Mattresses are more complex than it seems -- they have to be, because your health and comfort rely upon them. If you want to find out more about finding the perfect bed, visit the showroom at Northland Furniture today.
