8 Things to be kept in mind while buying a Mattress
Goodnight…is it just a mere wish or the reality of your life? Do we really have a good night throughout those 6 to 8 hours?
After moving mountains at the workplace, or after a long dreary day, fetching a good night’s sleep becomes highly imperative. A sound sleep depends upon a lot of tangible and intangible factors. Comfort, stress level, room temperature, etc. But above all, you’ve got to revisit the basics and your mattress type is the first building block to a peaceful and relaxing slumber.
How do you know if the mattress or mattresses that you’re sleeping on every day is the right one for you?
“If you wake up next day morning and have back pain and you are not able to get rid of it in next 15 or 30 minutes, that means you’re on an inappropriate mattress…time to change, hence, go for some mattress shopping to fetch some comfortable and sound sleep!
If you are in the market searching for a new mattress FOR YOUR KING SIZE OR QUEEN SIZE BED, or with today’s tech-savvy era gazing at different online stores, you know that there is a huge array from which you need to choose.
So how do you know which mattress is best for you? Let’s look into some facts that will help you choose the best category mattress or mattresses for yourself:
- What type of mattresses would you prefer?
Memory foam mattresses are made up of layers of different densities of HR Foam and Memory foam that respond to weight and temperature and are known for comfort because they contour to the specific shape of your body. It reduces pressure points and relieves pain. If you have a hard time getting a comfortable sleep or some type of muscular pain, then a memory foam mattress would work well for you. The second one is the HR Foam Mattresses having a structure of the highest grade of polyurethane foam which is extremely elastic that contours to the body well and a solid platform used to prevent body impressions and sagging to extend the life of mattresses. The third one is Dual Comfort Mattresses, the second level of foam added on both the top of HR foam to add extra softness and support.
- Best time to replace your mattress!
One should replace the old mattress with newer ones every 8 years to have a comfortable and peaceful sleep (it may also depend upon your requirement). For instance, if you are aging and in need of good back support then you may choose to replace your current mattress with a memory foam mattress or HR Foam mattress for better spine support.
- What is your budget?
Choose a budget that works for you but does not compromise much as this will purchase you comfort, good sleep, and good health. Opt for a brand that can offer factory-direct pricing with no middle-man mark-up. Hence try to choose better mattresses, better services, and lower prices.
- What firmness level is right for you?
A firm spine is very important for a good health and fitness. If the mattress is too firm, it will push on those main pressure points and take you out of alignment, if it’s too soft, those pressure points won’t be properly supported, so your whole body flops back. Both of these scenarios can lead to an achy morning.
Firmness and feel are incredibly important for side sleepers as they need a mattress that’s soft enough to contour to the curves of their body. If this is the case you should choose a memory foam mattress as it will support your back well providing you a sound sleep. Otherwise, it may lead to lower back pain, neck pain, and/or shoulder pain.
- How much do you weigh and what is your body type?
Support from a mattress is directly related to your body weight. The heavier you are, the more the support foams have to work to provide optimal comfort to you… If you have a heavy body type then you should choose a Memory foam mattress instead of foam or spring mattress as it helps to provide optimal support to your body. And its firmness will help you stand up easily in the morning. Weight affects how much support you will receive from your mattress based on pressure points, so think before you buy!
- What about a warranty?
Choose a mattress that offers at least 10-20 years warranty as you are not going to replace mattress very often, hence you require good quality mattresses that last long and remains as it was at the time of purchase.
- What about customer satisfaction?
Do check and question that what intangible benefits does the mattress provides to you. It should offer comfort: a sound sleep, firmness: high-density foam to support your back, hygiene: removable cover for a quick and regular wash, body contour: adjusting to your body and releasing pressure points accordingly.
- What defines quality?
Do not forget to peep into the technical specifications of a mattress while buying one. We usually do not focus on technical aspects and end up buying the wrong product. The mattress should have a breathable knitted fabric that is extremely soft and one that adds an extra layer of softness to the mattress. The mattress cover too should be made up of high standard cotton fabric and should be available with the zipper as well which provides hygiene to your mattress as well.
Hence buying a mattress may sound an easy task, but it isn’t due to the fact that it is directly related to your mind, body, and soul and the fact that there are numerous factors to be taken into consideration before buying a simple mattress, makes the task tougher and tougher. But as mentioned here keep in mind all these parameters while you go mattress shopping next time.
