When it comes time to finding the right mattress for you, the pressure is on. You realize how important it is. On average we will spend a third of our lives sleeping. And even then, our waking lives will be spent with lost productivity and in a foul mood without a proper night’s sleep.
Finding the best mattress can be thrilling, but it can force us to ask some personal questions about ourselves.
Where do I see myself for the next five years? I know, a deep question, right? But the best mattress should be one that’s the proper size for yourself and your partner, and properly fits into your home/Mattress sizes vary per region, but they are generally these dimensions:
Twin: 38” x 75”
Twin XL: 38” x 80”
Full (or Double): 53” x 75”
Queen: 60” x 80”
King: 76” x 80”
California King: 72” x 84”
Are you a person who sleeps on your side, back or stomach? Sleeping on your back tends to be better for the curvature of your spine, but most people tend to sleep on their side in the fetal position. Some sleep on their stomach, which can be hard on one’s neck and spine. Knowing which position is best for you will help you find your best mattress.
Knowing how you sleep will help you decide if you should get a mattress that’s soft, medium soft, medium firm or firm. Sides
Types of Mattress
So what’s under the hood? Depending on the firmness you’re looking for, the size, and the durability, it’s best to know what type of mattress you’re looking for.
Open spring: These tend to be the best value for money, but may need to be replaced more frequently. These mattresses can offer less support than other types, so they may be suitable in a guest or child’s room.
Pocket spring: If you find yourself getting too hot at night, this mattress type may be best for you because it’s more breathable than other kinds.
Memory foam: You can sink right into these more modern mattresses, which is good for relieving joint pain and for providing support to your spine.
Latex: These mattresses are durable and will last many years. They’re breathable, and the best for people who are allergy-sufferers.
Finding the best mattress for you is important. Research which type is best for you, go to different stores and lie on different kinds, and give yourself enough time so that you don’t rush into a purchase you might regret.
