Your mattress is feeling uncomfortable, you are waking up with back ache, you have a restless night. All these point to the fact that its time you had a new mattress. We spend up to one third of our life in bed and if you do not have a good nights sleep then it can affect you the next day.
Sleep is a very important party of a person's life as it is the time when our body and brain relaxes and revitalises itself. When choosing a mattress you will be confronted with a very wide choice and it can be very difficult in deciding which is the most suitable for you.
First of all the type of mattress you choose will depend on the bedroom it is for and who will be using the bed. If it is for a child's bedroom or a guest /spare bedroom, then the type of mattress chosen could be very different from what you would want for your main bedroom.
A guest bedroom mattress would not need to be as expensive as the main bedroom as it will only be used very occasionally, whereas the main bedroom will be used virtually every night.
A child's bedroom needs a mattress that can stand up to the rigors of the normal boisterous ways that children can use a bed. If the mattress is for the main bedroom then there are generally a number of factors to be taken into account.
Is the bed for you and a partner, are you similar in height and weight, do either suffer from any back problems or do either have any allergies. All these can determine what type of mattress will be most suitable for you and your partner.
There is now a very wide choice of mattresses available including the most basic which are filled with material such as horse hair etc which are generally the cheapest. This type of mattress could be satisfactory for a spare room etc. The most popular type of mattress is called the Pocket Spring Mattress. This is made using a great many conical springs linked together with a material layer covering them This type of mattress is very popular as it gives individual support to various parts of the body when laying on it. It also has the advantage of one partner not disturbing the other partner if they toss and turn in bed. The pocket springs can be made of various tensions to allow for people who want a soft or firm mattress. You should be careful when choosing a spring mattress, making sure that it has individual pocket springs and not just one continuous spring arrangement.
The latest type of mattress now available is what is known as a Memory Foam Mattress. This is made from a special foam material that has very small air bubbles built into it. The Memory Foam mattress has the added advantage in that it reacts to your body heat and weight. As you lay in bed the mattress moulds to your body shape making sure that you have equal pressure on all parts of your body overcoming the problem of pressure points. This type of mattress has the added advantage in being perfect for a couple where the partners are different in stature. The Memory Foam will mould itself to each individual giving each the ideal support for a comfortable nights sleep.
There are now a number of mattresses on the market that have taken these basic styles and make them even more luxurious. The pocket spring mattresses sometimes include a second layer of smaller springs on top of the main springs, these give even more comfort. Other manufacturers have included Memory Foam together with pocket springs within their mattresses. This gives the best of both worlds making for a perfect nights sleep.
There are many benefits of choosing a memory foam mattress especially if you want that luxury sleeping experience when you feel as though you are being completely cocooned in your own little world of dreams.
Memory foam has a unique open cell structure that has the ability to react to the heat and weight of your body. As you lay on it, it moulds itself to the contours of your body, your heavier parts causing the deeper depressions in the memory foam. This then eliminates all pressure points that your body is normally subjected to when using other types of mattresses. This is why this type of mattress is a favourite in nursing homes and for anyone who has to spend a great deal of time in bed. This of course, doesn't mean that it is only useful for this type of person, but just emphasises that it is a mattress that will give perfect comfort and support for all its users.
There are many benefits using Memory Foam in mattresses, not only to prevent pressure points but because it allows the body to have the correct alignment through the neck to the back relieving tension pains in the neck. It is also helpful in relieving headaches caused by tension etc.
All other parts of the body benefit from receiving the correct support and alignment when sleeping including restless leg syndrome, arthritic joints, lower back pain and muscle ache. When choosing a Memory Foam mattress there are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration. Depending on how you sleep will decide on the density of the Memory Foam mattress you choose. Sleeping on your back will generally mean that you will need a firmer mattress than if you sleep on your side. If you sleep on your side a too firm a Memory Foam mattress will not allow it to form the correct shape to allow your spine to be in alignment.
Another factor in deciding on the ideal mattress is your body weight. Memory Foam mattresses have varying thicknesses of foam within them, the heavier you are the thicker the foam is in order to support you correctly. It will always be better to have as thick a layer of Memory Foam as possible. A good mattress will include at least 3 inches of Memory Foam. Another advantage of Memory Foam mattresses is that they can keep you much warmer in the winter but will also dissipate heat in the summer, making them very comfortable whatever the temperature.
When choosing a Memory Foam Mattress it will always be advisable to purchase the best you can afford. Cheaper Memory Foam mattresses may retain your body impression after a period and not spring back to their original flat shape and stay compressed; this then makes it very uncomfortable for sleeping. A good Memory Foam Mattress will recover its shape even when you are tossing and turning in your sleep. Most Memory Foam Mattresses also have the property of not harbouring dust mites which is perfect for sufferers of Asthma, thus allowing sufferers to sleep much more soundly. When choosing a new Memory Foam Mattress make sue that you have considered all the relevant factors before purchasing it as the wrong mattress may not give you the support, comfort and that luxurious experience that the correct choice will afford you.
