At Mattress Next Day, we can give you the best advice when it comes to choosing your new mattress. Whether you're actively shopping for a new mattress, or you're just starting to wonder if you should, it's a job that's made much easier if you have access to some useful tips. It's important that you choose your new mattress with care; you will spend over 30% of your life on your mattress over the next few years, which is why you need to make sure that you choose one that's right for you. Mattress and bed Ideally, you should shop for a mattress and a bed at the same time. Putting a new mattress on an old bed could compromise the comfort and support that your mattress gives you and may even invalidate the manufacturer's guarantee. If your mattress needs changing, chances are that your bed does too. Support and comfort You need to ensure that your mattress provides you with the support you need. It's just as important that your spine is protected in sleep as it is when you're awake. A good mattress will allow you to allow naturally, without putting any undue stress on shoulders or hips. Try out a number of different mattresses to see which provides you with the support you need and the comfort you want. Size You need room to move while you're sleeping. A standard double bed really isn't wide enough for two people to share - investing in a king or superking bed and mattress isn't that much more expensive and means you will have the room you need to sleep comfortably. Choose the biggest bed you can, and a mattress that fits it properly. Spend wisely Even if you're on a budget, you should buy the best mattress you can afford. Of all the furniture in your home, your mattress is possibly the most important and yet it's often the most neglected. Whilst it may seem expensive at the time, you'll reap the rewards of a good mattress from the first night you use it. Take care Look after your mattress once you've bought it. A good mattress should last for 8-10 years and the better care you take of it, the more life you'll get out of it. Follow the manufacturer's care instructions and take additional precautions such as fitting a mattress cover, letting your bed air and vacuuming your mattress carefully once a month.
