Mattress Buying Guide

Buying a mattress is a big decision –

After all you spend a third of your life in bed.

We understand the importance of getting the right mattress for you.

So we’ve put together a few things to consider when buying a Mattress

  1. When you are “looking” for a new mattress what you are really searching for is a good night’s sleep, something you can’t see, you have to feel it. So try before you buy.

  2. Do your research before buying a mattress, this way you will get a basic idea of what types of mattresses are on the Market.

  3. Make a note of all the things you really enjoy about your current bed and want to repeat and list those things you’re unhappy with and would want to avoid this time around.

  4. Use the knowledge of the sales advisor in the showroom to ask all your questions, they are there to help and will guide you through the process from start to finish. 

  5. The correct support to ensure natural spinal alignment is the absolute priority. When in the showroom, lie on the mattresses in your usual sleeping position for at least 10 minutes, if you share a bed with a partner, it’s really important to try together.

  6. Try not to feel self-conscious when testing beds, relax, – you need to find the right bed, so get into your favorite sleeping positions, move around – don’t be shy! Wear clothing you’re happy to lie down in and remove outer garments which hinder the “feel”.

  7. Pick a new pillow at the same time, the position of the head and therefore the neck and spine are crucial in finding comfort.

  8. Don’t try too many mattresses when out shopping, trying lots may confuse you. Find your favorite and keep comparing to that. You’ll know you’ve found the right bed as the heavier parts of your body such as the shoulder, hips and knees are correctly supported with no pressure points and your spine aligned.

  9. Avoid a mattress too soft for you as this will cause your hips and shoulders to pinch in and the spine to curve downwards, putting pressure on joints and muscles.

  10. Avoid something too firm; a mattress which is firm puts unnecessary strain on your shoulder and hips and is unlikely to support the lumber region of the spine.

  11. Preferably go for a pocket spring mattress, the springs offer you superior support, adjusting to your body contours and will cause less disruption to your partner when moving around.

  12. Look for natural fillings in a mattress such as wool and cotton, they have unique temperature regulating properties, are extremely durable and offer luxurious comfort.
