The nights are getting longer and colder, the holidays are almost upon us, and of course, there is nothing like making sure the kids are tucked snugly in their beds.  But just because you tuck them snugly in their beds doesn’t necessarily mean they are comfortable and going to get a good night’s sleep. How on earth do you think you are going to get them to sleep for Santa’s visit if they aren’t comfortable? If your kids complain about being uncomfortable and unable to sleep, maybe it’s time for you to visit Bed’r Mattress Knoxville and talk to one of our dedicated sleep experts.

Buying Beds for Kids is Different

When you visit our mattress store in Knoxville, there are distinct differences between buying a mattress for a child and one for an adult. It is far too easy to overlook some of the most important aspects of buying a new mattress in Knoxville for your child. Here are a few tips we have put together to help ensure you buy each of your kids the right mattress.


There are many different materials used in the construction of a mattress, some of which may or may not be harmful to your child’s health. If one of your kids has sensitive skin or allergies, you may be better off purchasing them a mattress made from natural material such as latex or latex alternative that is hypoallergenic. At our Knoxville mattress store, we carry latex and foam alternative mattresses that are certified hypoallergenic, making them an excellent choice for kids.

Give ’em Room to Grow

Many of the mattresses we carry in our mattress store in Knoxville carry a ten-year warranty, but odds are, it is likely to last much longer. The last thing you want is for your child to outgrow their mattress before it wears out. So rather than trying to save a few dollars by opting for a smaller mattress that you may have to replace before it is worn out, buy one that gives your child plenty of room to grow. Rather than a buying a twin-size mattress, opt for the twin XL size. This one is longer than a standard twin, which should be plenty of room for the average teen.

Bring the Kids With You

You wouldn’t buy a new mattress for yourself without visiting the store and “test driving” several different mattresses until you and your significant other find the one that feels right. Why would you expect your children to be able to sleep on a mattress that you picked out? Let them lay on the mattress in several positions for at least ten minutes. This should give them enough time to figure out which one feels the best to them.

By far the best tip we at Bed’r Mattress Knoxville have to ensure your children will drift off to sleep all snuggled under their blankets is to come visit our mattress store in Knoxville! Our sleep experts will work with you, and each of your children, to find them the right mattress. Visit us today and your kids will sleep tight while Santa delivers his annual bounty.
