Mattresses are not “one size fits all.” Since you spend a third of your life on your mattress, it should be designed for your needs. When making your purchase decision, here are some factors to consider:
You may like to sleep on your side, back, stomach, or a combination of the three. Whatever your desired position, there are plenty of options available.
If you have something that’s keeping you awake at night– like back pain or night sweats– make sure to get a mattress that addresses your needs. Sleeping on the right mattress can make a world of difference.
We take a lot of naps. It’s tough work, but someone has to do it! In all seriousness, we put these mattresses through the wringer. We evaluate on a myriad of different factors including pressure relief, spine alignment, motion transfer, and cooling/airflow.
Not only is the mattress itself important, but so is the purchasing process. We take into account the ease of ordering, how shipping is handled, the ease of setup, and overall customer service.
We set try to make the mattress buying experience simple, stress-free, and maybe even a little fun.
Mattresses are not one size fits all. There are a lot of factors to think about. What position do you sleep in? Do you sleep alone or with a partner? Are you generally hot or cold when you sleep? Do you like to sink or prefer a firmer surface? The reality is, it’s going to come down to personal preference. Luckily for you, there are tons of options to choose from.
That is a highly subjective question. It really depends on the type and brand of mattress that you have. Like most goods, mattresses range in quality. A high quality mattress should last upwards of 10 years before it starts breaking down and losing it’s structural integrity. Unfortunately, there are many mattresess that only last a few years. Generally speaking, it may be a good time to start thinking about a new bed every 5 or so years.
Well, you need to put the mattress on something. But you have options. Anything that is sturdy and offers support may work, even if that is the floor! A platform bed is another popular option, especially if you like a lower height of the mattress surface. If you don’t mind spending some extra cash and want some flexibility, check out an adjustable base. These will allow you raise one or both sides of the mattress to help find a comfortable position, or to making watching TV easier (although watching TV before bed is not recommended!).
