Guide for choosing the best mattress

Category : Home and Garden

Replacing your mattress could be exhausting. Navigating the stores and sites, debating between springs and foam, and determining how much to invest, can leave you feeling like you require a great nap.

Instead, skip the stress and follow these tips which can help you navigate the world of mattresses in just a few minutes.

Selecting a Mattress

Selecting a new mattress can be a challenging task. With this quick summary, we have listed the main concerns you will need to be aware of when choosing a mattress.

Is it the time to replace your mattress?

Is your mattress more than 8 years old? A general recommendation is to replace your mattress every 8 years. However, if you are unable to sleep well, then you can throw this 8-year benchmark off the window.

Your sleep habits ought to be the most significant factor in deciding if you should change your mattress. Sleeping poorly? It is time for a change.

What mattress kind is best for you?

When picking a mattress, the most excellent choice will come down to either coils or polyurethane. Foam provides a great hug, shape, and a unique feel.

The coil is a more traditional feel with a high bounce. For many sleepers, a foam mattress is recommended.

But if you are very large (250+), need a conventional sense, and/or have full cooling requirements, coils are the better option.

What is your budget?

Select a budget that works for you. Ideally, you will have $800-$1,000 to invest. This will provide you the maximum options and put you at the luxury end of the online stores.

Don’t spend less than $500 unless you need a mattress that’s likely to break down much earlier (and one which could potentially be toxic also).

What is the hardness level right for you?

Most sleepers would rather have stability in the 5-7 from 10 ranges. This is suitable for all sleeping positions and many weight/body types. If you choose 4 or below that, you’re probably a side sleeper.

If you go over a 7, you’re most likely a tummy or back sleeper (anything much above a 7 is not good for many side sleepers)…
