When shopping for a mattress, most of us don’t put enough thought into choosing the right mattress, especially considering how much time we spend on it! We all assume that soft, fluffy and ‘comfortable looking’ ones are the best. But to feel well rested when you wake up the next day there are some important factors that we need to keep in mind while selecting a mattress that will ensure proper rest for our body.
Buy a mattress with both optimal cushioning and support. As mattress is a durable product, buying a good long lasting mattress is important. A cheap mattress can sag within a few years of usage. Though comfort and support is personal, it is generally defined by one’s lifestyle and body weight. The mattress, in order to be proportionate to our body and to offer 100% of all its comfort quality, must be 20cm longer than us and at least 160 cm wide if sleeping in two.
Know your requirements: Each one of us has specific and different requirements, so mattresses should be of a general ergonomic characteristic that guarantees support of independent weights and gives equal support to all parts of the body.
Purchase quality mattresses: Look for brands with long standing international or national experience, like Magniflex. Also, consider the customer service offered by the mattress store, such as delivery options, customisation of mattress to any size or shape and last but not the least brand’s warranty policy.
Choose a foam mattress: Good quality foam mattresses especially that are made of memory foam distribute body weight evenly. Pressure points are completely reduced i.e. Zero Pressure Points, which reduces the tossing and turning. Pure foam mattresses have a lot of breathability that reduces sweating on the mattress.
Lifespan: Buy a mattress that has a long life. Although cheap mattresses are a great deal now, they may be more expensive in the long run because you’ll have to buy a new one sooner. Ask for mattresses with at least 10 years warranty, even against sagging.
