How To Choose The Perfect Mattress

Tips for choosing a new mattress

Getting a good night’s sleep is important, especially when you have a family to take care of. According to a recent study, the main factor that affects the quality of your sleep is your bed, more specifically, your mattress.

Want a good night’s sleep? Your mattress needs to be as soft and comfortable as a cloud. If your bed isn’t as comfy as it could be - maybe it’s lumpy or slightly too hard, you need to invest in a new mattress.

Different brands and types

When it comes to choosing a new mattress, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Today, there are so many different brands and mattress types to choose from, that it’s a little overwhelming. The most important thing is not to rush out and select any old mattress because it’s on sale. You need to do your research and take your time choosing the perfect one.

You may think that with so much choice, choosing the perfect mattress will be impossible, but it doesn’t have to be. To make the task a little easier, we’ve put together a few handy tips:

Aim for comfort

The most important thing you should do when mattress shopping is, above all else, aim for comfort. Buying a new mattress is all about picking the perfect design for your needs - it should be all about you.

Some of us like soft mattresses, while others prefer a slightly firmer design. You need to think about what you want from a mattress, as well as what your back responds well to. Don’t opt for a soft mattress just because your friend has one and loves it, you need to think about what your back needs.

Always try before you buy

So you’ve walked into your local bed store and fallen in love with their king size latex mattress - don’t make the mistake of buying before you try. Even if a mattress is marked as being the same comfort level as your old one, that doesn’t mean it’s suitable for you. There’s no universal mattress numbering system, so each company uses their own. This means working out which mattress is best for your back, without trying it, can be almost impossible.

That’s why, before you buy, it’s important to test out a mattress for at least 20 minutes. Or if you are buying online, buy through a company that offers you the chance to try it and return it, if it’s not right.

Brand names aren’t important

When it comes to mattress shopping, far too many of us choose a design because of its brand. However, there is no need to do this, as almost every mattress spring is made by the same manufacturer. You might think that by paying a higher price for a branded mattress you will get a better night’s sleep, but often, that’s not the case.

Look for a hypoallergenic design

If you are prone to allergies, it’s a good idea to invest in a hypoallergenic design. That way, you’ll know that your new mattress won’t make your allergies flare up or cause any other kind of irritation.

For a hypoallergenic mattress, the best materials to opt for are wool and natural latex. Always make sure to have a read of the label before you buy, to ensure that there are no nasty synthetics in the mattress.

Picking the perfect mattress is no easy task, especially with so many options to choose from. Hopefully, however, if you follow the tips in this guide, you can make mattress shopping a little easier for yourself.
