If you’re in the market for a new mattress there are a few things to consider to make sure you but the right one for you.
Getting a good night’s sleep is vitally important for your health – both physically and mentally and what you’re laying on has a huge impact on the quality of that rest – having an adequate level of comfort and support will ensure a much higher quality of sleep, with less shifting and moving, and fewer wake ups as a result of being uncomfortable – here are a few things to consider when purchasing a new mattress…
INVEST IN A NEW BED
Your bed is obviously the most important contributing factor to a good, restful night’s sleep.
If you’re sharing your bed, buy the biggest one you can, the more space you have, the less likely you are to disturb each other’s sleep.
There are so many choices –
Soft or Firm
We’re all built differently and while a super firm mattress might be perfect for some people, offering great support and comfort, it could apply too much pressure on the shoulders and hips of others.
Sprung or Foam
You can get pocket sprung, open coil, encapsulated foam, sprung with a foam topper – there are so many options to consider – price will play a big part in most people’s decision-making process, but there are deals available to suit everyone’s budget, check out Groupon’s bedding deals while you’re at it!
BUY A MATTRESS COVER
Seriously – as well as shedding dead skin while we sleep, we lose around half a pint of fluid every night – that’s disgusting – a decent mattress cover can help prolong the life of your mattress and most good ones can be popped in the washing machine as and when.
It will take time and consideration to find the right sleep solution for you, but once you do you’re all ready for seven to ten years worth of restful, comfortable sleep – unless you have children of course.
