Your mattress is something that you are going to use every single day (or night) for at least the next five to ten years. If you are looking to replace your old mattress or just want to buy a new one, you know how overwhelming the process can be. There are over a hundred different types of mattresses available in the market to choose from.
However, what will suit your requirements won’t necessarily suit someone else’s.
Here are a few tips to help you choose the best item from your next visit to the mattress factory:
- The Core
This is the basic foundation of your mattress. There are more than a dozen different varieties you can choose from; from foam to memory mattress, to latex, to air-filled, water filled, etc.
If you are someone who suffers from back pain and back issues, it is recommended not to opt for a mattress which is soft, but rather to opt for the stiffer versions. Memory mattresses are becoming increasingly popular as they retain your personal shape and style of sleeping, making it more comfortable for you to get snug every night.
Latex mattresses are a popular choice for the younger generation who like a little bounce in their mattresses and they can last for almost 20 years!
There are several people who suffer from allergies, and choosing the wrong type of mattress can aggravate these allergies. Foam and latex mattresses are the best choice as they are inherently antimicrobial. These mattresses are also resistant to dust and mould. Thus, last for very long.
Most mattress companies will offer you with a good warranty for their products. This means that if your mattress breaks a coil, stops bouncing or becomes defective in any way which could be the manufacturer’s fault, the warranty will cover this for a period of time. It is important for you to discuss the terms and conditions of your warranty before purchasing one from the mattress factory on your next visit so that you can get optimal out of your new mattress.
You do not necessarily need to spend a bomb to get a good night’s sleep. There are several mattresses which you can afford without busting your bank account which can offer you a great night of sleep for many years to come. This completely depends upon the material of your new mattress. Switch between synthetic and organic materials to find out which one best suit your needs.
- Coils or Layers
The number of layers or coils that a mattress has in it is proportional to how comfortable the mattress will be. One of the best indicators for you about how comfortable your mattress will be was not the price of the mattress, but how good it personally feels to you. When you visit the mattress factory, ask them to sit and lie down on the mattress for at least 15 minutes to know the quality of the same. This will give an idea of how the mattress will feel to you after you have been using it for some time.
- Heat Retention
Many cheap foam mattresses do not support heat retention and can make you feel pretty cold when you are simply dying to get cosy in your bed after a long day of work. Look for a mattress which offers heat retention feature.
Make sure that you purchase the best mattress possible in your next visit from the mattress shop by keeping these easy tips in mind.
