Choosing the right Mattress for you

Choosing the right Mattress for you
May 23, 2017 caretocomfort

Did you know that we spend around a third of our lives in bed? So it is very important that you choose the right mattress that is particularly suited to your individual needs.

Because there are so many choices it can be hard to know which mattress to choose so here are a few very important factors you should consider to help you select the right one:

1. Size

Obviously you’ll need a mattress that fits your bed so the size is one of the most influential factors when buying a new one. For comfort sake you should have at least a foot of spare room around you. If you’re taller than average, we can offer extra longer or custom built beds which will ensure you get a very comfortable nights sleep. If you’re sharing your bed with a partner you should also take into account how much you or they move about in the bed while you are sleeping. Allow space for tossing and turning, as well as sleeping comfortably next to one another.

2. Firmness

Your choice of a hard or soft mattress will depend on your own personal preferences. If you suffer from lower back pain research has shown that a medium to firm mattress provides the best support.

3. Mattress Lifespan

The durability of the mattress will be dependent on the quality of the materials used & the construction methods.  The manner of the construction  will also affect the lifespan.  All our mattresses are made in Ireland.

4. Motion Disturbance

If  your partner has a tendency to toss and turn in their sleep it may also affect your sleep pattern. Choosing a mattress which can mould to your or your partners movements and absorb the shocks will help prevent motion disturbance. Memory foam mattresses offer a strong level of motion absorption while beds that have a lot of springs can disperse the movements among them, as opposed to one with springs spread far apart.

5. Warranty

All our mattresses come with 5 year warranty.  Choosing a mattress can a significant investment, so make sure to enquire whether it comes with a warranty before you buy.

We hope you’ve found this information helpful in choosing the prefect mattress for you.
