Guide to choosing a mattress
Sleep is a crucial factor and can determine what kind of day you have, yet many of us fail to invest in good performing beds and bedding. Choosing a suitable mattress can mean the difference between a good nights sleep and a night of tossing and turning. Here's our guide to choosing the mattress to ensure you wake up on the right side of the bed.
1. Out with the old
The age of your mattress matters. If you are waking up with aches and pains it is definitely time to consider investing in a new mattress. If your mattress is 8 years or older it may be past its due date and an upgrade is needed. Our exclusive collection of beds and mattresses is great for sleepers in need of adequate support and comfort.
2. Consider the firmness
How firm do you need your mattress to be? It is important that you choose a mattress that has your required firmness. This can change from person to person. If your mattress is not firm enough you will wake up feeling discomfort and pain in your joints. If you’re looking for a Rolls Royce in the mattress world, then a Respa or one of our own Luxury Interior Mattresses are for you.
3. Sleep position
The position you sleep in affects how much support you require at night. The wrong mattress could disrupt your body's alignment and lead to discomfort. If you sleep on your stomach you need a mattress that has equal support to avoid you sinking into the mattress at your midsection and curving your spine. Back sleepers are advised to look for mattresses that minimize pressure points and provide full support. If you are someone who sleeps on their side a mattress which is softer is recommended in order to accommodate the change in positions during sleep.
4. Your weight
Weight affects the amount of support you will need while sleeping. The heavier you are the more support is needed. Aim to invest in a mattress which minimises the chances of you sinking into it and offers all round support, we recommend our Latex Firm Mattress, starting from €479
