To get a comfortable mattress, you don’t have to spend much because the price range for our mattresses are from $250 to $4,950. After much research by the Better Sleep Council, it was discovered that customers will pay up to $1,100 for a mattress, and we have a lot of comfortable mattress in that range.
In order for you to make the right choice, there are a few things you need to think about.
What type of mattress do you want?
The first thing you need to think about is the type of mattress you want. There are a few types, like those with just foams, those with inner springs, and adjustable air mattresses. Even though foam beds have become quite popular because of their availability, inner spring mattresses have been seen to be bought more often. This is because these mattresses combine layers of springs and foams covered with fabric.
Nowadays, foam mattresses have layers of foam and gel to improve comfortability. Adjustable air mattresses are more flexible because they allow you to inflate air into the mattress to regulate its firmness. This allows you adjust the bed to your desire. These three types have their pros and cons and identifying which suits you best would go a long way in helping you make the best decision.
How do you sleep?
The way you sleep should also determine the kind of mattress you choose. If you sleep on your side or you lay on your back, there are tests to support both kinds of people. In order to satisfy side sleepers, the mattress has to maintain the horizontal alignment of the spine while back sleepers should get mattresses that maintain the natural curve of the spine.
How firm do you like it?
The comfort of each person differs and this is determined by the firmness of the mattress. Therefore, determining how firm the mattress is will help you in choosing the right mattress for optimum comfort.
Mattresses are most times classified as soft, medium, firm and extra firm. But with our tests, we are able to determine the firmness on a scale of 0 to 10 and with our ratings, only one mattress scored 10. Hence, it is recommended that you try out mattresses to determine which is most comfortable.
What’s your size?
Mattresses are categorized into different size rates, like petite, average, and large/tall back sleepers. You will realize that the best mattress for small people aren’t the best for large people. Therefore, knowing your size will help you determine the most comfortable mattress for you.
It goes without saying that before purchasing any product you should test it. If you have the opportunity to test the mattress by lying on it, it is recommended that you spend at least 10 minutes testing it.
A survey was done and it was discovered that up to 62,000 consumers that test their mattress for 10 to 15 mins generally recorded greater satisfaction with their mattresses of choice.
With the above tips choosing the right mattress should be easy. All you need to do is pick the type of mattress you love, the one that fits your sleeping style, the one with firmness that makes you comfortable, and lastly, the one that fits your size. Although, all these tips are more appropriate for people that sleep alone, if you sleep with someone else it will be advisable to consider your partner in choosing the mattress and getting the one that is best for both of you.
