Always spend the most you can afford on your mattress
Do not underestimate your bodies need to recover with a good night’s sleep. You will spend a third of your life in bed so make sure you are the most comfortable you can possibly be! Look for value for money rather than the cheapest.
Make it large!
Your bed and mattress should be the ruler of your bedroom. It deserves respect and space to do its job properly. Always get the biggest bed you can fit in your bedroom. You need room to sleep undisturbed.
It has to be said that Goldilocks was a smart girl and her way of thinking works perfectly when choosing a mattress. You do not want a mattress that is too soft or one that is too firm, you want one that is just right for you! If you are like Papa bear and carrying a bit of weight, a firmer mattress may last longer and be more supportive.
As well as your weight, the feel of the mattress you select can be determined by what your body has been used to. As long as you have been happy with the firmness of previous mattresses and you do not have any health issues being hindered by the firmness then this is a good gauge. Here at Beds on Legs we find the most popular feel is a Medium Feel. It’s not too soft and not too firm and will suit most people.
Do you suffer with a bad back?
“Ortho” Mattresses and Firm Feel Mattresses are not always the best choice for a bad back! Your spine has a natural curve to it and benefits from a mattress with a bit of give. Memory Foam and Latex layers are often recommended by Doctors for people with back and neck problems. Both of these layers can provide orthopaedic support, enabling movement, helping to evenly distribute body weight and reduce pressure points. Bad Backs Beware… We are coming for you!
