Choosing a new bed and mattress poses many dilemmas. Comfort will be a top priority, but the style will also feature highly. When you’ve got so many bed options at your disposal, including divans, four-posters or bed sofas, as well as many mattress types such as memory foam, gel or innerspring, it’s easy to see how making the right choices requires meticulous research and consideration. Making the right decisions when you buy beds or mattresses is really important to ensure you get a good night’s sleep and to provide the vital support and comfort your body demands. Your bed or mattress should also suit the user and style of room and offer excellent durability.

Mattress Considerations

Before you go bed shopping, take time to consider what you want from a new bed or mattress. How you tend to sleep, whether on your front, back or side, can dictate what type of mattress might suit you best. As well as your sleeping style, consider who will be using the mattress. Children or occasional users are suited to open-sprung mattresses, while two people of different weights sharing a bed may find a pocket-sprung mattress is the ideal choice. If you suffer from aches and pains in the back, memory-foam mattresses are recommended. For allergy sufferers, memory-foam mattresses also hold great appeal, as do hypoallergenic mattresses, which are especially suitable if sneezing, itchy eyes and a runny nose are a problem. Choosing a good-quality mattress from a leading brand is always preferable, but bear in mind that no matter which mattress you buy, it will need replacing around every 8-10 years. Always buy new, and choose the best mattress you can afford to fit in with your budget.
