Interested to know as our Queen ensemble is 10 years old and would really love a new bed but just cant afford one atm So how old is your bed?
Could prob get one at tax time but wouldnt be able to spend alot.
Not sure if i should just replace the mattress and get something decent or if anyone has any recs for some reasonably priced brands to go with?
Our current bed is a king Koil and as far as i know the base is ok but dont want to ruin a new mattress if its not so maybe i should just replace the lot.
I looked online and the average is around $3000!

How often do you replace your mattress?

My last mattress I had for 6 years. It was a cheapy though. For a more expensive one I would expect it to last a lot longer. Don't the better quality ones usually have a 10 year warranty? So you could expect it to last at least that long.

My bedroom furniture was bough in 2008, so 5 years old.
The furniture was $1500ish & mattress was a few hundred. I'm thinking of buying a new mattress the end of this year but since the furniture is all in great condition I will keep it till its broken

I buy Sealy mattresses so they last for agesss.
My bed frame is at least 30 years old, possibly more so yours is probably still good.

Ok so maybe we could get away with just a new mattress then? All ive noticed with the base is the middle support leg has broken (its on wheels) but that happened ages ago and doesnt seem to have caused any issues.
Guess we could always put the base on the ground and unscrew and remove all of the wheels / legs.
Any recs for a mattress, prob no more than say $600ish?

Mattresses are such a personal thing! Some people will swear by their cheapie Fantastic Furniture $99 special whereas others will only go for the tip top of the range!! And nowhere lets you try a nights sleep before you buy do they! lol.
My last mattress (Queen) I bought in 2008 for $2000, just before meeting DP. He's done nothing but complain about it being what causes him a bad back and poor sleep. So last month we bought a new King bed suite of which the mattress retail was $3999 (we only spent $2900 due to sales.)
I'd like to think we'll get 5 years out of it before upgrading again.
If you will have the money at tax time then it's probably a good time due to stocktake sales. Places like snooze and forty winks had 40% off a certain brand of mattress when i was looking so there is deals out there - you just have to wait for the right time.

Best way just go to the shops with your partner and try the mattresses out. Thats how we got ours. We got it before our wedding which we were paying for so we couldnt go expensive but we didnt get the cheapest either. Its 6.5 years old now. Still not too bad a mattress. Obviously a new expensive one would be nice but one day we'll look. For now we're happy with what we have.

A Sealy Mattress can be anywhere between $300 and $2000 depending where you go. I got mine for I think $350 or so last Feb.

Our mattress is about 6 years old. It's a full latex one and the only problem I have with it is it's a f'ing pain in the butt when it comes to moving because it's so darn heavy and floppy. We did consider getting a new bed for a while there about 18 months ago (only because our current mattress was in storage 1600km away and it would have been the cheaper option) and we looked at the pocket spring mattresses. It was really nice. Love my latex one though and we got it for $1000. It was well worth it for DH's comfort.
