5 Preferences You Need To Choose A Great Mattress For You
You’re going to need to do some extensive research of your own about mattresses before heading out to the store – that is, if you want to get in and get out of the store as quickly as you can. Or if you want to avoid getting a mattress that you’re going to be unhappy with at the end of the day. It would be a shame for you to get a mattress that you wouldn’t even like – the refund or exchange you’ll have to make would be an extra hassle that nobody wants!
The Comfort You’d Like In a Mattress
Getting a bed that feels almost perfect to you doesn’t lie within the price of the mattress or anything of the sort. Sure, you could be choosing from the best mattress brand, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re getting a mattress best suited for you. Knowing if the mattress is perfect for you would lie in the comfort you feel when you lay down and relax on the bed.
Comfort is entirely subjective, so you’re going to need to test out the mattresses individually for a reasonable amount of time to determine whether you like it or not, honestly. Even if you think that the mattress you’re laying on is comfortable, how can you tell that it is as you say? Well, you’re going to need to think about the different factors.
The Type Of Mattress You’d Prefer
This will be one of the significant factors that you’re going to need to consider when buying a mattress. There are currently more than five different types of mattresses that you can pick from, but there are more commonly just three types sold at mattress stores. In addition, the type of mattresses are often associated with their characteristics and stereotypes, so you’re going to want to research these a lot.
There are the innerspring/traditional mattresses – the classic image of a bed, a cushioned layer above a layer of a series of springs or metal coils. Very durable and on the firmer side. A memory foam mattress seems to be what many people want since it’s very soft, and softness is associated with extreme comfort. A hybrid mattress is a mixture of both the innerspring and memory foam mattresses – soft memory foam on top of many springs.
The Size Your Lifestyle Needs
Mattress size can play a significant factor when thinking about comfort. You’re not going to find a mattress size that can barely fit your entire body very comfy, right? Not to mention how you’re going to need to choose the mattress size appropriately if you need room for more than just one person on that bed – if you have a partner and if you have a child that just loves sleeping in between you and that partner.
Pick the size of your mattress accordingly since a narrow mattress wouldn’t be good for anyone who’s a sleeper that loves tossing and turning. Make sure that the mattress size also fits the bed frame that you already have. Your mattress isn’t going to be that comfortable if it just flops over the sides of the bed frame, right?
The Firmness or Softness You Want
Probably the most critical factor that you will need to consider is how firm or how soft you’d like your mattress to be. Picking the ideal firmness level would be somewhere that’s firm enough for your back to get the proper support it needs, as well as enough pressure relief so that your bony parts and joints don’t hurt over time. On the other hand, too firm of a mattress would be close to just lying on the ground with a thin blanket – it hurts and is uncomfy.
Choosing too soft of a mattress means that you’re not getting proper back support. Over time, the mattress would just end up sagging more towards the centre since it can’t retain its shape anymore. You need to think about your body size, shape, and weight too. If the mattress can’t handle your body, then you would just sink in towards the centre.
The Mattress That Fits Your Health History
Something like back pain or joint pain. If you have either of those, you’re going to want to find a mattress that can aid with those problems – something with a good resistance or firmness with a good amount of softness. Not to mention that there may be mattresses out there that are great at sucking up dust, so if you have any allergies to that, then maybe get a mattress that isn’t so prone to dust mites collecting within it.
Knowing the different factors of what makes a factor great isn’t enough. You’re still going to need to do your research, so you know all of the options you have for choosing a mattress. Then, leading us to the next part, you’re going to need a plan or criteria so that you don’t get confused with what you want or suddenly change decisions mid-shopping!
