Choosing the right mattress for you

If you are looking to maximise your sleep then chances are that having the right mattress can go a long way towards ensuring that these goals are really achieved and you might be surprised to know that there are a whole host of different mattresses on the market that you can choose from. With so many options it’s not always easy to work out the right one for you, and if you are going to make a long-term investment then it’s often a good idea to try before you buy.

That’s right – try before you buy

You’ve probably seen heaps of stores that have mattresses laid out on the shop floor and you’ve always wanted to go and jump on them – well, this is your chance! It’s important that you really get a feel for a mattress before you buy it and by physically trying it out you can easily work out whether or not you think the mattress might be right for you.

Make sure that you test a whole host of different mattresses before you make your purchase and this means testing a number of different sizes and a number of different materials which can each contribute heavily towards the feel and effect of your mattress. Different people prefer different materials so try a few out and work out which one uniquely meets what you are looking for.

Which mattresses might I choose from?
There are a range of different mattresses available on the market and these include:

Pocket Springs
Pocket springs are individual springs which are designed to respond to the needs of your body. These mattresses offer a good level of spinal support and prevent any roll on the mattress giving you a great night’s sleep.

Memory Foam
Foam mattresses is designed to give you the support that you are looking for by moulding uniquely to your body. Designed to help relieve pressure in your body, these mattresses aim to provide optimum back and body support while relieving any aches and pains that you might have.
