Serta Mattresses - 5 Mattress Shopping Tips | Chervin Furniture & Design

Brand Profile: Serta

Everyone deserves to always be comfortable.

There are 3 pillars of health: exercise, nutrition, and sleep. Research shows that on average, humans spend 1/3 of their lives sleeping. If this is true, wouldn’t we all want to maximize the comfort and quality of the sleep we are getting by purchasing the right mattress?


Serta has been working hard to perfect sleep innovation in Canada for over 90 years. Recognizing that everyone has different needs and preferences, Serta has developed various constructs of mattresses in size, materials, and firmness, so that no needs go unmet. The company has developed two award-winning collections, the Perfect Sleeper Collection and the iComfort Collection. Not only is Serta the choice mattress provider to households, but they also provide mattresses for major hotel groups.


There are many qualities that set Serta mattresses apart from any other brand, the most notable being their quality, the value for money of their products, 10-year warranty, and the fact that they are designed and built right here in Canada.


We asked our sales staff, “What are the most important things to consider when shopping for a new mattress?”. Here is what they had to say:

  1. Coil Count – The coil count is important in determining the amount of support the mattress will provide you with.
  2. Mattress Foam – Each type of foam offers its own benefits to the sleeper. A gel-infused mattress is often a good choice for those looking for a cooling surface to sleep on. Memory foam supports all sleeping positions and is known to help with neck and back pain. Latex mattresses are great for those with year around allergies as they repel harmful microorganisms such as bacteria, mildew, and dust mites.

3. Edge Support – Check to see if the mattress has edge supports, so it does not sag on the sides the more you use it.
4. All Memory Foam vs. Coils – Coil mattresses are great for those who prefer a more bouncy or springy sleeping surface and need low to medium pressure relief. If you need more pressure relief and prefer a cozy, body-hugging feel, the memory foam mattress is for you.
5. Adjustable Bases – Some mattresses can be used on a standard base and an adjustable base. Depending on your stage of life, you may choose to invest in a mattress that can be used on both types of bases.

Shopping Tip:

Be sure to express your sleep pain points, habits, and goals openly with your sales consultant, so they can find the best fit for you!
