Any human being who wants to be at their best during the day needs a good night’s sleep every night. However, the vast majority of adults have sleep sleeping soundly. Sleep disruption can occur due to many reasons such as stress/ any health condition, the environment of the room, or the mattress used for sleeping.
If you’re having trouble sleeping because of your mattress, you should think about getting a new one. There is a wide collection of mattresses to choose from which makes it a perplexing task to choose the right option.
When buying a new mattress you need to keep in mind a few aspects. These will help you to make the right choice.
CHOOSING THE SIZE OF YOUR MATTRESS
The size of the mattress you need will be determined by your specific requirements. There are multiple sizes available on the market to choose from. You can find bed sizes in inches or centimeters depending on which online marketplace you are shopping from. California King, King, Queen, Full, Twin XL, and Twin are the most popular mattress sizes.
The California King (California King)
The Cal King has dimensions of 72″ X 84″ and the total covered area by it is slightly smaller than the King size mattress. It has a width of 72″ so it is narrower but its length is 84″ so it is lengthier. The longer length is great for people who sleep on their backs and fronts and have a height of greater than six feet.
People with pets at the foot of the bed will appreciate these mattresses. Since it has a small footprint, it’s easier to fit in tighter areas of the house. Because there must be at least 24 inches of space between each side of your bed and the surrounding walls in order to decorate your bedroom, keep this in mind when planning your space.
The largest mattress size available is the kingsize mattress. Featuring a 6,080 square-inch floor plan, this spacious home is ideal for both couples and families. With a 76-inch width, you’ll have plenty of room for a pet or a newborn baby.
The length of this mattress is a little shorter than the Cal King so it is for people who are under six feet or those who sleep in a curled position. You should only buy this mattress if you have a wide room otherwise it will not go with the aesthetic of your room.
The most popular mattress size is the queen-size mattress, which is available in various lengths and widths. They are lighter and more portable, and a wide range of accessories are available for them. The 60″x80″ size is ideal for couples or dimensions who prefer a lot of space to stretch out while they sleep. And if you are on a tight budget it will be the best option.
The 54″ x 75″ size is ideal for single adults or teenagers who want plenty of room to stretch out. Except for those willing to make the sacrifice and content with 27 inches of personal space for each other, it is not suitable for couples. These mattresses are easier to move and transport.
TWIN AND TWIN XL
The twin and twin XL are of the same width but different lengths. Taller people who sleep alone prefer the XL, while children who are neither too big nor too small to sleep in a full-size bed prefer the twin.
Choosing THE MATTRESS’S MATERIAL
The next thing to keep in mind when choosing your ideal mattress is its material. Different materials have different properties so you need to choose them according to your requirements. Materials come in a variety of forms, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages.
The introduction of new materials has diminished the allure of the traditional spring mattress over time. They are available in a variety of spring designs, such as Bonnel, encased, offset, and continuous springs.
They have many advantages, the first being they are a budget-friendly option. Durability is another important factor, these mattresses have springs that are made from metal so they are known to last for decades. The springs have plenty of space between them, which aids in the flow of fresh air.
These mattresses are the most popular because they offer the best possible cooling and comfort. Highly responsive and bouncy they guarantee you an undisruptive sleep. The Hevea-Brasiliensis tree is the source of latex. Latex is made by extracting the water from a white liquid produced by the tree. All-natural latex and synthetic latex are the two types of latex currently available. All-natural latex is a healthier option and it is environmentally safer to produce. Synthetic latex, on the other hand, is less healthy and less expensive to make.
Molding itself according to the shape of your body, memory foam presses inwards when you push on it or put weight on it. Foam reverts to its original shape after removal. It’s incredibly soft and supportive, and it covers the entire body. This property helps the mattress to support your lower back arch which does not get supported on a conventional foam mattress.
Another unique quality of this mattress is that it provides motion isolation. For example, if your partner moves a lot during the night, you will not feel any movement and will not be disturbed because memory foam does not transfer the energy to other parts of the mattress.
Because it retains heat, this type of mattress isn’t ideal for those who prefer a cool night’s sleep.
This mattress incorporates the properties of memory foam and spring mattresses to provide a hybrid solution. These are available with a varying thickness of foaming layer, the best being the 3-inch thick foaming layer.
As far as cons go, these mattresses can be quite expensive, costing up to $2,000.
The top of the mattress has a soft material sewn to it, and the rest of the mattress can be made from latex, coil, or memory foam. These provide extra comfort and are considered a luxurious option.
MAKING THE FINAL DECISION
If you have any health issues, such as back or neck pain, your weight, or the way you sleep, all of that will factor into your final decision. You can then go out and buy a mattress after thinking about all of the above.
