How to buy the perfect Mattress for you

Buying a mattress is such a personal purchase, as a poor night’s sleep can affect your mental health, immune system, productivity and your metabolism. You will need to take many things into consideration before making a purchase. Here are a few tips to give you some guidance to make sure you make the right choice for you.

MATTRESSES

Do not buy a mattress on price alone. People assume the more expensive the mattress the better it must be. This is not always the case as peoples individual preferences differ so much. Work out which mattress style you prefer whether is be foam or Sprung etc, then look at price levels.

Ask for advice as the Salesperson should have the knowledge, and be able to guide you towards the mattresses that match your preferences for you to try and compare.

 

People presume the firmer the mattress the better it will be for your back, but this is not necessarily the case. A lot will depend on your sleeping position, whether you are a slide, front or back sleeper, for example a decent memory foam mattress may suit a front sleeper better, and a sprung mattress with a layer of foam may be better for a person who sleeps on their back, giving slightly more support.

Trying a mattress before you buy is always best, especially if it is yourself and your partner making the purchase as again you will both have different requirements. If it is not possible to go into your local shop then always read reviews and full information of a mattress. Our website will tell you the firmness and comfort levels of each product helping you towards making that purchase correctly.

The National Bed Federation recommends you change your mattress every 7 years, you can be the best judge of this. If you feel like you sleep better in other beds or have started waking with aches and pains. It might be time to pop in and replace your mattress.

Always check what base a manufacturer recommends for your mattress, as you may need to replace the base to get the support and comfort from your new mattress.

Many mattresses require turning every couple of month to even out wear and tear and to get longevity out of your purchase.
