Narrow down your mattress choice.
To get the most of your visit in a mattress store, do your homework by looking at the answers of some frequently asked questions about buying mattresses.
How do I choose the right mattress for me?
You don’t need us to tell you that it is extremely important to choose the right mattress for you. The mattress is the most important element in your bedroom – according to statistics, you will spend an average of 8 hours a day, 56 hours a week, 240 hours a month, or 2920 a year on it.
To guide your choice, we have listed several things to consider when purchasing the best mattress for you.
What mattresses are suitable for the different sleeping positions?
There are several guidelines for your sleeping position that will guide your choice.
The first and most common sleeping position is the side position. If you are among the people who sleep in the side position, which is the most common one, you will need to look for a medium and medium-soft mattress. The reason for this is that the mattress would contour to the shape of your body and thus relieve the pain and pressure points of the side sleeper.
Another common sleeping position is sleeping on your back. If you sleep on your back, shop for hard and orthopedic mattresses.
And last but not least comes the prone position, or in other words – sleeping on your stomach. If you are among the 7 % of people who sleep on their stomach, focus on medium-firm and medium-firm to firm mattresses. And just a friendly reminder, this position is unhealthy for our spine and neck, and it is highly recommended to work on changing it.
What to do if you are looking for a mattress but have different preferences from your partner?
In this case, you can always opt for a mattress with a dual core. There are several manufacturers of this type of mattress.
Dual Core technology means that the mattress is divided in two, and the degree of firmness of each side can be changed with a twist. In this way, a different degree of firmness is achieved for each partner. These mattresses can be tested in the stores we have listed in London.
*This technology is available in sizes over 150 cm wide. View the available options here
How to test a mattress at a mattress store?
Once you decide on a store in London where you will buy or test your mattress, get dressed and buckle up 🙂
Consider the following during your mattress store visit:
- It’s important that you lay down on the mattresses in the store so that you can feel how your body responds to the product and how the mattress responds to your pressure and sleeping position.
- When testing, lay in the position you sleep and stay there for at least 15 minutes.
- Don’t test all the mattresses available in the store because you will get even more confused.
- Test only the mattresses you have narrowed down in advance, having considered your budget, the firmness level you want and the mattress materials you prefer.
- Before choosing a store, set a budget and be clear about the size of mattress you need.
- Find out if your bed offers the option of using a double-sided mattress.
- Consider getting a mattress with a lease-to-own purchase if your budget is very limited, as the mattress is an investment in healthy sleep.
