There are few things better than a good night’s sleep to make you feel rested, rejuvenated, and ready to take on the day ahead of you. If your mattress is getting on in years or simply is not providing the support you need, it’s time to visit a mattress store. When you visit a mattress showroom in person, you can try out different mattresses to actually feel the differences for yourself. Spend some time on each one in different positions to get a feel for what it would be like to sleep for an entire night on that mattress. Choosing a mattress can feel overwhelming since there are so many options, so here are a few answers to common questions about mattress shopping.
When should you replace your mattress?
With proper care and maintenance, a good mattress can last as long as 10 years or more. If you cannot remember the last time you got a new mattress, or you can see visible indents in the mattress top, it may be time for a replacement. Older innerspring mattresses may start to poke you when you are lying down, making for a very uncomfortable night’s rest. The foam and springs inside a mattress lose their resiliency over time, which means you don’t get the support you need and you may wake up in pain.
Should I get a firm or a soft mattress?
The simplest answer to this question is really to choose what feels most comfortable to you. Remember when you are shopping for a mattress that it may get softer over time, but it will not get firmer. Some people like to err on the firm side while keeping that caveat in mind. If you have back problems, talk to your doctor to see if they have a recommendation for what might be best for your particular condition. Research and try out innerspring and memory foam mattresses to see which feels better to you.
