On average, we spend over 29 years of our lives sleeping. That means having a comfortable, supportive mattress is really important. If you think it’s time for a new mattress, here are a few things to consider:
· How old is your current mattress? If your mattress is over 7 years old and you are waking up with body aches or stiffness, it may have lost its ability to properly support you. Also, if you notice visible dips or lumps or if the interior is exposed, it’s time for a new mattress.
· What comfort level is best? There are four main types of mattresses: firm, plush, pillow top or ultra plush. A firm mattress is often recommended for people with back pain as they tend to be more supportive, while the ultra plush mattress style is super soft and are sometimes referred to as “clouds.” The best way to discover which comfort level is right for you is to test mattresses out at our Gardner-White locations with advice from one of our mattress experts.
· What temperature are you when you’re sleeping? The construction of the mattress can also determine your comfort level. For example, if you tend to overheat while sleeping, a mattress constructed of memory foam may not be the most comfortable for you as foams tend to trap heat. To find out if a memory foam, innerspring, latex or hybrid mattress is right for you, visit a Gardner-White store to speak with a mattress expert.
· Do you need a better foundation? The right foundation can also make a big difference in the comfort level as well as help to increase the life-span of your mattress. A flat foundation is good for those who don’t want to be disturbed by other sleeping partners, as a yielding foundation acts as a shock absorber for the mattress. Adjustable bases are great for those who have a hard time getting in and out of bed, or like to watch TV in their bedroom.
