It's important to invest in a good bed that helps you get the relaxation you need. Like with all big-ticket purchases, it's important to have a budget and know what you need from your mattress. Here’s how to choose a new mattress…
If you wake up with aches and pains in the morning you may need a mattress that gives you more support. If you have a hard time sleeping, you need to find a comfortable mattress.
Once you're at the mattress store, be very picky. Talk to a salesperson and explain what you're looking for - they should be able to provide you with options from their stock.
Don't be fooled by brand names. Lie down on each prospective mattress for 15 to 20 minutes and see how it feels, as it may take that much time to truly relax and understand how the mattress supports you when you sleep.
The same goes for the store where you buy it. Visit different stores to see different stock and prices. Be very choosy. And when you test out a mattress, start with the expensive, high-end mattresses so you understand how they feel compared to the more budget-friendly options.
Most importantly, ensure that the mattress meets your physical needs. Memory foam mattresses tend to support youwell, but can get hot. Softer mattresses may be more comfortable but not provide enough support for your body. Ultimately, you have to choose a size that fits not only your room, but your sleeping habits too. People that move a lot in their sleep may want to choose a Queen-sized bed so they don't fall out of bed.
