Everyone loves to have a peaceful good night sleep without any interruption. When you have a restful night then you get up fresh in the morning and stay fresh all day. The quality of your sleep depends on the mattress you sleep on. A wrong selection of mattress can trigger back pain and headaches and keep you restless all. While shopping for a mattress you must consider a few things such as the position on which you sleep and how many people will accommodate that mattress so you can choose a perfect size. There are different types of mattresses available in the market according to their firmness and sizes. Here is a little guide from us to help you selecting the right mattress for you:
Three common types of mattress available in the market are foam, innerspring and adjustable mattress. All materials are perfect in their own way. In general, if you are a side sleeper then you need a soft mattress while stomach sleepers need a firm mattress and if you are a back sleeper then you need something in between soft and firm.
WHO NEEDS A MATTRESS WITH BOUNCE?
Traditional innerspring mattresses can be firmer with a bouncy feel. Always look for an interconnected coil if you want something extra durable. There are also individual pocketed coils covered with fabric separately that reduces ripples effect if someone moves on one side of the bed.
A FIRMER BASE MATTRESS:
Less spring and pressure relief option is offered by a memory foam mattress. The thickness and density of foam will let you know how deep you can sink on it. Several layers of foam are used with a heavier foam on bottom and whole cooling types on top for comfort.
DO YOU PREFER A PLUSH TOP?
A firmer well quilted mattress can give you the plush feel. Don’t get confused by a thick looking pillow top as it can compress with time.
IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE EVERY TIME:
An air filled mattress with a remote to control the pressure of air inside is perfect for you if you sometimes want firm and other times a soft mattress. Mattresses with soft and firm sides are also available in the market so you can simply flip the side to your desired one.
FOR SIDE SLEEPERS:
Side sleepers need a mattress that supports their body weight. Built-in pressure relief points in a mattress around hips and shoulders works perfectly for side sleepers. A soft foam mattress or innerspring is a good choice.
IF YOU HAVE SOME ALLERGIES:
Latex and foam provide excellent resistance to dust, mold and mites but you choose some other kind like an innerspring, then make sure to encase it in an allergen resistant cover.
IF YOU SUFFER FROM BACK PAIN:
Latex and memory foam is the ideal choice for those who have back pain. These mattresses mould to your body for support.
If you are still unable to decide what matters most, there are some mattresses that combine the properties of innerspring and memory foam and they are the best choice.
