4 Factors to Consider when Purchasing a New Mattress

If you have endured your old, worn-out mattress for at least eight years, it is high time to prioritize a comfy new bed in your budget. With so many mattresses on the market ranging in size, temperature, comfort, and support, doing your research before committing to another eight to ten years of high-quality sleep is crucial.

Here are four factors to consider when purchasing a new mattress!

1) Size

The first consideration to keep in mind is how much space you plan to dedicate to a new mattress. The size of your bedroom can help you figure out how large a mattress you can house. Mattresses range from the single-user twin size at 38 inches wide and 75 inches long to the spacious king-size at 80 inches in width and 80 inches in length.

If you appreciate personal space and sleep with a partner that tends to toss and turn, a king-sized bed offers ample room and comfort for both sleeping bodies. Queen-sized beds are also wide enough for couples.

2) Comfort

Once you have determined the size of your mattress, it is time to decide on the firmness and comfort level of the mattress. With so many options available, how comfortable and soft your mattress is depends on personal preference. Mattresses range from incredibly firm to extremely soft and adjustable, with various selections in between. There is no “one size fits all.” 

3) Temperature

Did you know that your mattress could be causing you to wake up sweating in the middle of the night?

The best thing to do when looking for a mattress as a warmer sleeper is to research if the mattress you desire has a cooling technology system or if the materials it is made of are conducive to a cooler night’s sleep.

Pillow-top mattresses and memory foam are the most temperature-sensitive based on their materials, so they tend to offer the warmest nights of sleep. Hybrid mattresses contain a combination of different materials, and latex mattresses allow for improved air circulation and flow, cooling things down.

4) Price

Mattresses are an investment, especially the larger and more advanced technology you get, but they could last up to 10 years or more if taken care of. Set realistic budget expectations to match your desires for restful sleep.

Sleep affects everything we do, from our mental and physical health to our work ethic, mood, and motivation. So, investing in a mattress that gives us the comfortable, perfect night’s sleep we need is crucial.
