How to choose your Mattress!

What should I look for when choosing a mattress? Which factors matter when choosing the correct mattress? Have you faced questions like these? We have tried to provide you with few answers in this article…

Did you know that most of us spend one-third of our lives in bed, everyday we for sleep for about 8 hours. We do spend a lot of time in bed and the bed we spend it in has a lot to do with how comfortable we are during the night and day. You should also care about your bed because a good night’s sleep is essential for a good day ahead.

Have you been having difficulty sleeping lately? Do you toss and turn, wake up in the middle of the night, or have an ache in your back? The problem might be less about your body and more about what your body is lying on. Abnormalities in your sleep routine could be signs that you need to buy a new mattress.

Confused about which mattress to buy?

Here is a guide to check out which mattress suits you and your needs the best!
 

3 Things to be considered before  you make a decision

  •  Support
  • Sleeping Position/ Body Types
  • Warranty

 

1. SUPPORT

Aim for a supportive mattress not a hard one!

Always start with the level of support a mattress provides. Nowadays all mattresses are made up of many layers but there is an inner core that defines what kind of mattress it actually is. Find out which kind of inner core suits you and provides the best support.

 

bounce-n-cot

If you like a bed with bounce…

Spring mattresses have that nice bouncy feel.

If you prefer an extra-firm base…

You can go for memory foam mattresses, (which have a polyurethane core) and have much less spring.

If you like a little buoyancy…

Latex mattresses are similar to memory foam models in terms of firmness, but have a bit more spring-back.

 

2. SLEEPING POSITION/ BODY TYPES

The next point to consider when making your choice, is your sleeping position and the body types of your partner and yourself.


sideIf you tend to sleep on your side…

You will want a surface with a lot of ‘pressure relief’ or the ability to disperse while supporting your body weight, and conforming to your shape. Cushy memory foam or a mattress with a fluffy topper will have the most pressure relief, while a very firm mattress will offer the least. Spring mattresses may have more pressure relief than a foam or latex mattress.


stomachIf you tend to sleep on your stomach…

A firm top surface will provide the best support if you are a stomach sleeper. The last thing a stomach-sleeper probably wants is an enveloping memory foam – it would feel smothering! Instead, consider a dense Spring, Latex or Rubberised Coir mattress


backIf you tend to sleep on your back…

You will want something in the middle-a surface that supports, but has some give so your spine is kept in a healthy alignment. You will find happiness with any of the mattress types and so you get a wide range to choose from.

 


roll-in-d-middleIf your partner tosses and turns all night…

Consider a Spring mattress with pocketed coils, or memory foam, or a latex mattress. These will all have good ‘motion isolation’ so that you do not get disturbed by your partner. But remember, these models could be less comfortable on the body of a restless sleeper, as there’s little give against one’s movements. So perhaps you may have to make a compromise of a combination mattress. Something that isolates motion at the same time has some give for the movements of your partner.

 
hot-headIf you tend to sleep hot…

Mattresses topped with foam or latex can hold in body heat, especially if they’re very soft and a lot of your body sinks in. For this reason, you may prefer a fibrefill-topped Spring mattress. Even better, use a removable fibrefill or feather mattress topper that can be removed and washed.

 

allergic-full

 If you have allergies…

Foam and latex are both inherently antimicrobial and resistant to dust mites and mold. If you opt for a spring with fibrefill, be sure to cover it in an allergen-resistant cover to keep irritants at bay.

 

not-decided

  If you can’t make a decision about what matters most…

Mattresses topped with foam or latex can hold in body heat, especially if they’re very soft and a lot of your body sinks in. For this reason, you may prefer a fibrefill-topped Spring mattress. Even better, use a removable fibrefill or feather mattress topper that can be removed and washed.

 

3. WARRANTY

 

warranty

Make sure you read the warranty conditions thoroughly and safeguard against violating any of them as this may render the warranty void.

Generally, a warranty covers manufacturing defects which will likely reveal itself within a year.

A good mattress can last you eight to ten years even though it may not be the same as it was when first purchased. So start looking for a replacement after a maximum of seven years.
