How to choose the right mattress

Getting a good night’s sleep has an incredible impact on your overall health and wellbeing. And a mattress is a huge determining factor in your ability to achieve a quality night’s sleep or wake up feeling unrefreshed and lousy.

Generally, a good quality mattress should last you about 8 years, so taking the time to research the right mattress is important to ensure years of great sleep!

1. Determine your sleep position

Did you know your sleep position will give you an insight into what type of mattress may be most suitable?

  • Back sleepers – look for a medium-firm to firm mattress that features moderate contouring to support your lower back.
  • Tummy sleepers – a firm or memory foam mattress may be the best option to reduce pressure on your lumbar spine
  • Side sleepers – you’ll be more comfortable on a soft-medium firm mattress.
  • Toss and turner – a medium-firm mattress will suit those who change positions throughout the night.

2. Consider the mattress design and material

There are a variety of mattress types and materials that can indicate the quality and suitability of the product for you. Some of the most popular include innerspring, memory foam, latex, hybrid or adjustable mattresses.

Exploring all the options available at Nunawading Homemaker HQ in stores such as Adairs, Focus On Furniture and Regal Sleep Solutions will help you find the right mattress for you and your budget.

3. Decide on the firmness

The right firmness for you will depend on how you sleep, whether you suffer from pain, if you need more support and your body type.

Firmness is subjective and can vary from brand and product, even if they are using the same firmness scale. We recommend you choose the firmest mattress that still enables you to get quality sleep. And remember, it can take a few weeks for your body to adjust to a new mattress.

4. Identify your body type

Time to get up close and personal and check in with your body weight and shape. This profile will help you decide which mattress provides you with the best spinal support and comfort.

Those individuals with a lighter frame are best suited to soft-medium. Heavier people are recommended to look for firmer mattress types. If you’re purchasing for a child, it is recommended you consider a larger mattress to accommodate their growth.

5. Determine your budget

Lastly, your budget is going to influence the range you have to choose from, the quality, durability and the level of support they offer.
Buying a mattress from an online brand may seem the most cost-effective option, but checking the suitability for your individual body type and the quality of construction is imperative to ensure you get a good night’s sleep. Likewise, the priciest mattress in the showroom may not be the best option for you.
