Discover the secret to a good night’s sleep


We all know that getting a good night’s sleep is key to a better health. And how do you ensure a relaxing slumber? Your mattress has a lot to do with it. Here are tips that can guide you when it comes to making the right choice. These may come in handy before you visit the mattress/furniture store.

Familiarize yourself with the different types of mattress.

Some of the most popular include innerspring, memory foam, and latex.

Innerspring mattress is the most common and cost effective as it uses a steel coil system for support and covered with materials like padding and quilted ticking for comfort.

Memory foam mattress molds to the shape of your body and distributes your weight evenly.

Latex is made from either natural or synthetic rubber, which just like memory foam, also conforms to the contours of your body reducing pressure points. 

Understand your physical needs.

There is no single mattress type that would fit for all. If you’ve been suffering from back or neck pain, choose a mattress that would provide support for the natural curves and alignment of the spine. If you have allergies and asthma, find a mattress that’s designed to prevent the growth of dust mites, mildew and bacteria. 

Size matters.

If your mattress complies with your sleeping patterns and relieves back pains, you also have to consider getting the right size for a comfortable sleep. Make sure you and your bedmate have the proper amount of space to sleep in. Twin size can accommodate one child and an adult sleeper. A queen size bed is recommended for couples, and if you are more than six feet tall, a king-size mattress is a good choice.

Test run a mattress before you purchase it.

 You wouldn’t buy a dress without fitting it first, right? Same goes in buying a mattress, make sure to test nap on it by lying down for 10-15 minutes. If it feels comfortable enough especially in your favored sleeping position, then it’s the right mattress for you.

Buying a mattress is a big purchase for your home. Invest on one that can give the best value for your money and comply with your physical needs.
