The Importance of Good Mattresses
Sleep. Everyone needs it, but too many people do not get enough of it and 90 percent of those that are not sleeping well at night blame their mattress. Good mattresses are important because they help you get better sleep at night, which has numerous benefits for when you’re awake. If you’re in need of a new mattress, National Furniture Liquidators has many options for you to choose from. Here’s how to find the best mattress for you.
Go Out and Look for the Mattress of Your Dreams
You spend a lot of your life sleeping. Therefore, it makes sense that you should do your research when finding the right place to get a restful night. However, unlike most purchases these days, this one cannot be done online. That is because you have to lay on the mattresses to feel them and decide if you are comfortable. Everyone has a different definition of comfortable because they have different pressure points. Regardless of which mattress you ultimately decide to buy, make sure that it does not sag. Sagging is bad for your back.
You cannot try out mattresses by looking at a picture on a computer screen. You need to go to the store and play Goldilocks. Try out all the different mattresses in the store until you find the one that is just right. Then, ask about the warranty and have it delivered to your home as actually sleeping on the beds in the store is frowned upon.
Additional Mattress Tips
When it comes to the box spring, either get rid of it completely or replace it each time you replace your mattress. On average, you should get a new mattress every eight to 10 years. The same is true of the box spring. Moreover, vintage is not a word that should be associated with mattresses. After all, do you really want to be sleeping on someone else’s old bed?!
If you have allergies, be sure to check the mattress labels when you are shopping and buy a good hypoallergenic mattress cover. Also, if you are sharing your sleeping quarters with someone else, you may want to consider purchasing a mattress that lets the two of you pick your own firmness so that you are both comfortable. There are also beds available that limit the amount of motion you and/or your partner feels when the other moves in his or her sleep.
Finally, do not give in too fast to the notion that you bought the wrong mattress. Give yourself a week to get used to your new digs. If you are still tossing and turning with bags under your eyes, call and arrange for a return or exchange.
