After more than 10 years of using the same mattress, I felt that now is the perfect time to visit mattress store in Perth to get a replacement. Mattresses certainly do not last forever and my 10-year old mattress is no longer as firm and comfortable as it used to be. Before I went to mattress Perth, I made an effort to research over the web the best kind of mattress that will allow me a good night’s sleep.
Tips when buying a mattress
Before you choose the mattress, it is important to ensure that the bed is of an appropriate size. The bed should be at least 10 cm longer than the tallest person who will be sleeping on the bed. For example, if the husband is a 6-footer the best choice will be a king-sized bed that is wide enough for two to lie side by side with the hands behind the head without the elbows touching each other.
Mattress shops allow customers to try the mattress. To determine whether the mattress can support the back, lie down and slide a hand beneath the small of the back. If the hands fit too easily, the mattress may be too soft for you. On the other hand, if the hand does not fit, the mattress is too firm. Think twice before you buy a firm mattress because if you tend to suffer from back pain, it is suggested that a medium firm mattress will be more comfortable.
Orthopedic is used to describe a mattress that has a firmer spring. While, many people swear by them, what matters are the proper support and the comfort that will be gained while sleeping. There are actually many different types of mattresses to choose from. The luxurious that are made from cashmere and silk while the standard mattresses are filled with cotton, mohair or lambswool.
If you want greater value for your money, there are open-sprung mattresses that contain one long piece of wire that is coiled into springs. The mattress has a firm edge because of the border rod of wire. This type of mattress retains its shape even if it is lighter than other mattresses. It can also be turned in all directions to extend its service life.
