5 Things To Consider When Buying A New Mattress
When it comes to buying a new mattress there are so many options, but which one should you go for?
The right mattress can depend on many things, including your preferred sleeping position, ease of care and of course your budget! Below we look at 5 top mattress buying considerations.
Mattress Buying Considerations
1. Mattress Budget
Your budget will largely determine the type of mattress you can go for, if you're on a low budget you'll typically be limited to an open coil mattress, whilst those with a more generous budget may want to consider memory foam and pocket sprung mattresses.
2. Mattress Size
Of course, the size of your mattress will be determined by the frame or divan base you intend to use it with!
Make sure you don't choose a new bed or mattress that's too big for the room or your existing base or bed frame. Remember that both single and double beds come in regular and small sizes, so do make sure you measure the bed base or existing mattress first before replacing yours.
3. Firmness Rating
For those with mobility issues or back problems choosing an orthopedic mattress could make the best choice because they are more supportive.
Conversely, those who dislike firm mattresses might want to consider choosing memory foam which is soft, yet supportive as it moulds to the shape of the sleeper.
4. Consider Allergies
If you're an allergy sufferer you'll want to think about ensuring your mattress is hypoallergenic and won't exacerbate your allergies.
5. Ease Of Care
In the past many mattresses required regular flipping in order to keep them in tip top condition, as flipping helps to more equally spread out the load and minimise wear and tear.
These days however many modern mattresses don't require flipping at all and are known as "no turn" mattresses. This is good news for those who live alone or find it difficult to turn a mattress as with a "no turn" mattress they won't need to worry about doing that.
