Now is the best time to buy a new mattress. A new year provides a new opportunity to finally sleep in comfort and give the next 12 months all you’ve got!
However, the task of selecting a new mattress can be quite daunting. There are many manufacturers to assess, prices to compare, and variants to research. However, convenience does not always mean comfort.
Choosing a mattress for one sleeper:
- A bed that is too narrow will leave you feeling restricted. Size up! A spacious double bed will provide you more comfort.
- A queen bed is great for those who prefer the extra space, but it may be too large for one individual. This is why you should always test a mattress in-store before any long-term commitment.
- A King or California King mattress should provide plenty of room; however, be aware of the size of your bedroom. Choosing a mattress that is too large can make you feel claustrophobic in an average or below-average space.
- Firmness labels vary between manufacturers! The firmness of a mattress comes from the deeper, support layers. A mattress should be firm enough to provide proper support to your spine, while maintaining it’s natural curve.
- Mattresses with “softer” comfort layers will help relieve pressure points while you sleep. Think about lying down on a hardwood floor. Where is your weight bearing down? To help relief pressure points, you want to sink into the top few inches of your mattress, in these areas.
TYPE OF MATERIALS — USED
A mattress is only as good as what is in it. Buying a mattress with unknown materials could be risky, as the mattress may soften/degrade much faster.
Even though some mattresses are more expensive, they tend to use better quality materials.
