Tips for Selecting a Good Mattress

Tips for Choosing the Best Mattress

When you spend nearly 42 hours per week in the same location, it is safe to say you should choose that location very carefully! You will spend approximately on third of your life in your bedroom sleeping on a mattress, which means selecting a mattress is a serious matter. After all this is the refuge you will seek after your worst days and the place where you enjoy your best dreams. This is your sanctuary, so make sure the quality lives up to the job.

Selecting an appropriate mattress can be a daunting task, and really requires nearly as much research as a new vehicle. Toward that end we have put together a handy buying guide to help you find the best sleeping platform on the market today.

Best Beds?

To say there are a multitude of mattress types available today would be an understatement. Some are great for breathability but not so much on comfort, this one is super comfortable for you but too firm for your partner and the list goes on. So, how can you find the best alternatives? Actually sleeping on a mattress is one way, but since you cannot bring beds in and out on a trial basis, the best thing you can do is learn to review them and learn what they have to offer.

The good news is learning to buy a mattress isn’t hard, but it does require taking a little time. You want to weigh carefully both your needs and the available options compared to your budget. It may be tempting to hand over your hard earned money for the first fancy mattress you find, but this may not be the best solution. Think about how long you are going to keep your mattress, this is an investment for the long haul and directly affects the quality and quantity of sleep you will receive.

Here are a few basic tips for choosing the best mattress:

  • What size do you need? If you are 6’5” and married, its a good bet a king should be on your list.
  • Firmness- talk to your dr or chiropractor, how firm should your mattress be?
  • Toxicity? If that’s something that is a big concern to you–as it is to most of us–seek out an organic latex mattress.
Look for reviews both online and offline about a given  organic latex mattress and bear in mind that you don’t want to settle for something. Select based not only on cost but on comfort and the absence of toxicity in the product as well.

Bear in mind that not every latex mattress is 100 percent latex and make sure that the one you select says that it is.
