Renting Out A Furnished Apartment? 3 Tips For Choosing A Mattress

2 Minutes Posted on:

While you may know what to look for when choosing a mattress for yourself, you may feel uncertain when choosing a mattress for someone else. If you own an apartment and rent it out to tenants fully furnished, there can be uncertainties about what to purchase. If a mattress is included with the apartment, you'll want to be careful choosing a mattress due to differing preferences.

Consider the following tips and how the right mattress can be ideal for use in a rental property. 


If you're eager to pick out a mattress to get an apartment furnished, the first thing to decide on will be the size. While a full-size mattress is a minimum size you'll want for a rental property, it could be difficult to determine how large to go. Instead of choosing any size based on your preferences, it's best to consider the size of the bedroom before making a decision. 

Since a mattress that's too large can crowd the room and make it difficult to place nightstands and other bedroom furniture, you should choose a mattress that's an appropriate size for the room. 


As you compare mattresses in a showroom, firmness is something to consider since it can affect how comfortable your tenants will be. Instead of opting for a soft or extra-firm mattress, choosing a firmness level right in the middle of the range is best. 

When you visit a showroom, request to see mattresses that appeal to the broadest range of people. With a mattress firmness right in the middle, you can avoid having your tenants be uncomfortable and can use the same mattress for much longer without complaints. 


When you're purchasing a mattress to use in a rental property, it's in your best interest to make an effort to protect it as much as possible. This means choosing a waterproof mattress cover that will seal it entirely, preferably with a zipper so the mattress is fully enclosed. This preventive measure will reduce the chance that any of your tenants will damage the mattress. 

Your tenants will also feel better about using the included mattress since the cover protects it from previous tenants. 

As you shop for a new mattress, there's a lot to consider when you're not going to be the one using it. For a rental property, you'll want to choose a mattress that is comfortable for as many people as possible. With the above tips, you can find a mattress that is ideal for placing in a rental.
