We spend almost half our life sleeping, so it is imperative we invest in a high-quality mattress that will stand the test of time and allow us to have the rest and relaxation we desire and deserve. If you are waking up sore and stiff or you are noticing a visible dip in your mattress, it is time for an upgrade. There are a number of things to consider when purchasing a new mattress, so today we are sharing with you our top tips for selecting the perfect mattress next time you are visiting Nunawading.
Your Sleeping Posture & Position
The way you sleep matters when considering the best mattress for your needs, so let’s discuss the best sleeping position and the perfect mattress to suit you. If you are a back sleeper, your weight is evenly distributed over your body, but to provide your spine with the most support it is recommended you opt for a medium to firm mattress. Front sleepers need extra support as well and it is suggested to avoid anything too soft as this is not supportive on the pelvis. Memory foam is a great option for front sleepers as it takes the pressure off certain areas and conforms to your body shape. If you prefer to sleep on your side, it is recommended to choose a soft to medium mattress as this takes the pressure off your shoulder and hip joints and conforms to your body position much better.
When selecting a new mattress, we often focus on the comfort level, plushness and overall appearance of the piece. Although these aspects are very important, it is also great to consider the practicality of the mattress and how it will suit your needs long term. Be sure to check with the sales staff at our retailers to see if they recommend flipping the mattress every so often and if this is something you can commit to. If not, it may be best to select a mattress that does not need to be flipped and has a comfort, foam topper. If you’d prefer to take your mattress home yourself, live in a small space or love convenience, then a mattress in a box option may work best for you. There are many different options, so be sure to consider the practicality and moveability of the mattress to suit your needs before purchasing. Head into Bevmarks and Harbour Lane to select the perfect mattress for you.
Cleaning & Climate Factors
Maintaining your new mattress to ensure it stays in beautiful condition for its lifespan and help alleviate symptoms of asthma or allergies is essential. When changing your sheets, we suggest giving your mattress a quick vacuum on low suction to remove any unwanted debris and dust. In the event of a spill, simply use a damp, non-abrasive white cloth to remove the stain and avoid using any cleaning chemicals that may cause damage. If you are prone to allergies, it is recommended you opt for a memory foam mattress as this material has closed pores that deter dust mites. To avoid stains and sweating we suggest using organic cotton sheets for breathability and selecting a seasonal quilt insert.
Try Before You Buy
When selecting your mattress at Nunawading we suggest heading into our amazing retailers like Bevmarks, Nick Scali and Harbour Lane. Here you’ll find helpful staff that can answer all your questions on the best mattress for you, the best sleeping position, what mattress will suit your lifestyle and the best option to fit into your budget. We recommend trying your mattress out before buying and testing a few options in store to see what you find the most comfortable. Take your time when testing out the mattresses, get comfortable and lie down to see how the mattress supports your body. Try out a few different materials, thicknesses and plushness levels as you may find your preferences have changed since the last time you purchased a mattress. Be sure to ask plenty of questions as our friendly staff are there to help assist you in finding the best mattress for your needs.
