How To Find The Perfect Mattress For You

Posted on: 24 June 2020

Searching for a new mattress can be an exhausting task. There are so many different makes and models of mattresses, each offering something the other doesn't, some doing everything possible except make you coffee in the morning. The cost of these mattresses can go anywhere from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. The price is going to depend on what you are using it for and what all you are looking for in a mattress. Read on for tips to help you find the right mattress for you.


The size of your mattress matters, as a young child isn't going to need a California king size mattress. However, if you sleep with your partner and also your two dogs, you may want a California king mattress. On the other hand, if it's just you, you could get away with a full-size mattress or a queen size mattress. The size depends on who is sleeping in the bed. If it's just a guest bedroom that someone uses once in a great while, you could also get away with a full-size mattress.

Firm Vs. Soft

Do you like your mattress to be firm or soft? The softer a mattress, the more you're going to sink into the mattress. If you like your mattress firm, where you are laying on top of the mattress without any mattress closing in on your body, you're going to want a harder mattress. If your partner wants a soft and you like a firm, you can get a mattress that can do both with a dual-sided mattress that changes the firmness of the mattress. This may cost you more, but at least you get the best of both worlds in one mattress.

Cool Vs. Warm

If you are someone that gets very hot when you sleep, you may want a mattress that is a little more breathable or even offers a cooling ability. These types of mattresses are sold on the market, although they can be costly. If this isn't in your price range, choose a mattress that isn't made of foam, which can feel much warmer than a traditional spring mattress. The type of fabric covering the mattress can offer warmth or can cool you down as well. 

If you are looking for a mattress, be sure you know ahead of time what you prefer in a mattress. This can help you narrow down your search a bit. Talk to a mattress salesman for help choosing the right mattress for you.
