It’s not that easy to purchase a mattress nowadays given the overwhelming amount of different materials and options available on the market. The difficulty doesn’t actually lie in the diversity of mattress types but more in the fact that most of us have no idea what all the components in them actually do.
That’s why we thought it would be a good idea to remind everyone in search of a mattress of these simple tips:
1 – Look online before shopping
There is plenty of valuable information online about mattress types, standard measurements and buyer’s guides. Look at these resources and you will learn more about mattresses than any high street mattress salesperson can possibly know.
2 – Know what you need
If you have a health condition or suffer from backache and other physical pains you might need a mattress with a specific amount of support and comfort. Check out all the options available and understand what all the components of the mattress do so you can make the best choice for you with peace of mind.
3 – Double check dimensions
This sounds simple but you would be surprised how often people make mistakes. A little reminder: when buying your bed and mattress separately and from different manufacturers (which isn’t ideal but isn’t something you should worry about) double check the measurements and keep in mind that a king size mattress bought in the UK will fit a king size bed frame bought in the UK but not a king size from the US or Europe.
4 – Think larger
This is mainly for your own comfort but is more important if you share a bed for both your and your partner’s comfort. Considering that the most common bedroom complaint is partners rolling over onto your side, getting a larger bed size will both be good for your sleep and therefore your relationship.
5 – You get what you pay for
The more options you choose the more expensive your bed will be but also the better the quality. A good practice is to determine in advance the budget that you are willing to spend on a mattress, choose the most appropriate options for you regarding your preferences and health condition and then accessorise the mattress with a topper, a cover, pillows and any other complementary items that will help you to have a perfect night’s sleep.
