If you were to sleep just 7 hours per night, you will spend around 106 days each and every year of your life sleeping. If this is not a reason therefore to ensure that you have just the right mattress which you can lay upon for these 106 days, then I’m not sure what is. I have been obsessed with sleep ever since I was young and had problems with insomnia, reading online blogs, forums and comments on places like , it appears that I’m not the only one who has suffered. One of the biggest factors behind my victory over insomnia was the purchase of the perfect mattress and if you want to know how to buy the best, here are some tips.
Work Out What You Are Looking For
There are a wide variety of different types of mattress out there and before you even walk into a shop, you should first have a think about what exactly you are looking for. Have a think about how you feel on your mattress, what is it you’re lacking? For some it could be comfort, others may need additional lumbar support and many are looking for something like memory foam which will fit around your body’s natural shape. Once you have identified what type of mattress you need, you can start to look at your options.
I would never recommend that you purchase a mattress online as you have no way of really testing it. With this being said, it is important that you spend some time online looking at the type of mattress that you need and most importantly, checking out reviews from people who have bought them in the past. Once you are armed with this information, you will have a much better idea of what it is that you will be looking for in store.
When you go to the mattress store and find a mattress which meets your requirements, it is time to test it out. I see far too many people who simply sit on the mattress or give it a little push to find out what it feels like but tests like this will prove nothing. The best thing to do is to jump onto the mattress, lie down, wiggle around, see how it feels, ask yourself could you sleep here and whether you have enough space to move around.
Spend Big and Get a Guarantee
I would advise that you do not shirk when spending money on your mattress, it will be the most used item in your home and therefore you should spend whatever you can on your new bedding. If possible, try to buy a mattress which comes with a comfort guarantee, this is often offered with the more expensive mattresses and it means that if you are not comfortable, you can return the mattress in the first 30/60 days, and get a different type, the perfect way to truly test your mattress out.
