A Few Things to Consider when Buying a New Mattress

It is worthwhile taking your time when choosing the right mattress as it is a long term investment that will directly effect your quality of sleep. Getting good nights sleep is one of the best things you can do for your health. Not getting an adequate amount of sleep can affect mood, cognitive abilities, stress levels, metabolic systems and much more. Because you will spend up to eight hours a night on your mattress, it truly is one of the most important choices you will make. On average a good quality mattress should last you from between eight to ten years. Durability, comfort and quality should be key factors when making your choice.  


A mattress can be a significant financial investment and so you want it to be highly durable and remain comfortable for as long as possible. Durability is determined by the quality of the materials used in the construction of the mattress. By choosing from a reputable brand you will be assured a high-quality mattress. The manner of the construction of the mattress also affects the lifespan. Hand-crafted mattresses can present the best choice in terms of the durability of their construction. 


The only way you are going to know if a mattress is right for you is by coming into the showroom and lying down on the mattresses to see which one feels right. Everyone differs regarding their assessment of what is comfortable. It really is a Goldilocks moment of deciding if it feels too soft, too hard or just right. And, considering the three years of your life you will spend lying on it, just right is important. It is advised that you take several minutes on each mattress, take your time and see which fits your individual preferences for levels of firmness and comfort.  


As well as comfort, you will be looking for a mattress that offers adequate support. Support is necessary to keep the spine of your back in alignment which will help with poor sleeping posture. A mattress that provides both back support and comfort will allow the structures of the spine to rest and rejuvenate during the night. Find a mattress that will provide support for the natural curves and alignment of your spine. 

Motion disturbance 

If you’re sharing a bed with a partner, their tossing and turning during the night may affect your sleep. This kind of disturbance can be lessened by choosing a mattress that will mould to your movements. A memory foam mattress gradually conforms to your body as you sleep meaning it will offer a strong level of motion absorption.  The memory foam contours to the shape of your body and allows you to feel partially surrounded by the mattress while being supported.


Ask for Advice 

There are so many variations of mattresses on the market today that it is advisable to discuss your requirements with a sleep expert. They will be able to advise you on the best mattress that will suit your particular needs. Because a mattress can be a significant financial investment, it is important that you are happy with your choice.
