Tips on How to Buy a Great Bed For You and Your Back

Sleep is one of the most important aspects of your life. The average person spends at least one-third of their life in bed. That is a ton of time, don’t you think? Most people don’t consider sleep important or vital to their health. It is absolutely crucial that you sleep on a good mattress that will give you the comfort and support you need. You won’t use any other piece of furniture as much. Nor will any other piece of furniture have such a lasting and powerful effect on your overall health.

People who suffer from chronic back or neck pain often say that they are in more pain when they don’t get a good night’s rest. What do you think is the most important part of your back that needs to be protected the most? That’s right…the spine. Your spine needs rest after a long day of moving, twisting and supporting your body. If you sleep on a worn-out mattress, or a mattress that isn’t supporting your spine completely, you are eventually going to feel the effects. There are several things to keep in mind when you go shopping for a new mattress. Here are some tips on how to buy a great bed for you and your back.

1. Type. There are so many different types of mattresses on the market today. You can choose from memory foam, innerspring, air, water beds, and latex mattresses. Latex mattresses, and the custom latex mattress have the highest overall customer satisfaction rating. Memory foam and luxury air mattresses come in close second. If you have back problems, you probably want to stay away from innerspring mattresses. Other mattresses will give your more comfort and support. Choose a mattress that provides optimal comfort and support for you.

2. Foundation or Box Spring. Many people don’t realize how important their mattress foundation is. You can’t buy a cheap box spring and expect it to provide you with quality support. Your box spring foundation is what absorbs weight and stress. Make sure to buy the foundation that is made to go with your mattress. There is a reason they are sold together, as a set. Choosing the right foundation will also help lengthen the life of your mattress.

3. Firmness. A common mattress myth is that “Firmer is better.” This isn’t necessarily the case. An extremely firm mattress does not provide even support for your entire body. Often times, firm mattresses only support your body’s heaviest parts. However, the reverse is just as dangerous. A soft mattress often sags in all the wrong places and distorts the spine. Make sure you get a mattress that isn’t too firm or too soft. You need a mattress that is firm enough and soft enough to allow all of your muscles to rest completely.

4. Comfort. Who wants to sleep on a mattress that isn’t comfortable? It is always miserable to sleep on a mattress where you can’t get comfortable or relax. Choose a mattress that is comfortable to you and your partner and make sure you both have enough room. Being scrunched or cramped certainly isn’t comfortable.

5. Durability. You want this mattress to last, right? There is a reason that you are spending good money on this mattress. You take so much time examining different mattresses, testing them out and you expect it to last more than a few years. Make sure that the mattress you buy is from a reputable manufacturer and uses the highest quality products.

These are helpful ways that can help you find “just the right mattress.” Remember, everyone is different and needs different levels of comfort and support. Don’t let the salesperson tell you what you need. Find out for yourself. Choose the right type of mattress that provides the right level of firmness and comfort. Make sure to get a good foundation that will help support your body while you sleep and prolong the life of your mattress. Follow these tips and you can be sure to buy a great bed for you and your back.
