How To Choose A Mattress

A good night's sleep will have a dramatic effect on your life.

Investing in a mattress is one way to improve your quality of life.

Try sleeping on an old mattress. Chances are, you won't feel rested in the morning. Sleep deprivation will affect your mood, health and job performance. A new, quality mattress that provides you with a restful night's sleep is well worth the price. Don't be confused by the choices available. Take it a step at a time and you will find the perfect mattress.

Ask your friends and family for recommendations, and then start browsing. Or you can scour the Internet for information and start narrowing your choices. Purchasing a mattress is a long-term investment in your health and self-esteem. Don't be afraid of looking at pricier options. Often, expensive mattresses may be on sale or part of a closeout event. Quality mattresses last longer, while providing greater support and comfort so you will not have to go through the trouble of buying another mattress in a year or two.

Consider your bed size. Is it time to buy a bigger bed? Perhaps you would like to sprawl out and relax. Multiple sleep studies have shown that a bigger bed equals better sleep because you are less likely to be disturbed during the deep stages of sleep through the night.

Here are a few other things to keep in mind:

Do you need a firm or plush mattress?
People who have a difficult time getting to sleep need to have a plusher feel to relieve pressure points caused from back, joint or neck pain. Other people who wake up stiff and sore will need a more supportive or firmer feeling bed. The idea with any quality mattress is to keep your spine in alignment. Mattress companies achieve this spinal alignment through the use of different types of coil systems, memory, gel-foams, latex foams or air.

Do you sleep with another person?
Mattresses made of memory or gel foam might be beneficial, as it will give you a personalized experience without disturbing the other person's sleep.

Do you have any allergies?
Standard mattresses can exacerbate allergies if you are sensitive to lint, cotton, dust or dust mites. If you or your partner have allergies, consider getting a latex, or memory foam. You might also think about getting a hypoallergenic mattress cover.

When you are looking at actual mattress options, the following are popular choices:

Pillowtop Mattresses:
Pillowtop Mattresses are famous for their softness; however, they do have levels of firmness. They also require a larger bottom sheet because the pillowtop adds to their extra thickness. It is also important to remember that pillowtops will likely show body prints or depressions because the added foams are suppose to conform to your body. This provides greater comfort, but is a trade off with the way a bed looks during the day when you are not in it.

Coil Spring Construction:
Coil Spring construction are great choices for people who want a firm mattress or are limited in the investment they can make on a mattress. This option has the ability to keep your spine aligned and provide comfort. Most mattress stores can show you samples of their product lines. Choose the best construction you can afford.

"Memory", Gel-Memory , Tempur Material:
Memory", Gel-Memory , Tempur Material or latex mattress are helpful if you have physical issues, such as skeletal pain or circulatory problems. This mattress conforms to the shape of the body. It also minimizes pressure points from the shoulders and hips so you don’t have to toss and turn as much.

Adjustable Air Mattresses:
Adjustable Air mattresses allow each person to change the firmness through electronic and mechanical devices that control air chambers. It is an ideal choice for partners who need to have different mattress preferences. You can also alter firmness for yourself, depending on your physical condition.

When shopping for a mattress, don't be afraid of lying down and trying it out. Roll over and pay attention to how your body feels. Are you comfortable? Do you feel supported in all the right areas?

Other Tips & Tricks

Two other important things to remember when shopping are buy a comfortable pillow that supports your head and shoulders while also putting you in the best position for optimal breathing. And, consider buying an adjustable foundation that allows you to change head, lumbar and feet positions. This is a great added feature for those who read, watch television, use a lap-top computer or have health issues that require elevation.

Inquire about the mattress guarantee or warranty. A standard warranty is 10 years. If the warranty is shorter or non-existent, look elsewhere. A mattress should be replaced around the 10 year mark for optimal support and comfort.

Remember, you spend roughly a third of your life on your mattress. It is a long-term investment. Choose wisely and you will be rewarded with years of restful nights, and days of energy.
