Tarzan and Jane’s dream home
Sleep is an essential part of an all-round healthy lifestyle. As with everything, the quality of our sleep is more important than the number of hours we get, so it’s important to choose a good mattress. Here’s our guide to finding the most comfortable one for you.
The first step towards finding your ideal mattress is understanding the way you sleep. Answer these questions to identify what you need:
- Do you share a bed or sleep alone?
As well as a bed that’s big enough for two, you need to be able to sleep and let sleep. Choose a mattress that gives both of you freedom to move without disturbing the other one. With a pocket spring mattress, you can’t go wrong.
- Which mattress is best for your body type?
If you’re on the lighter side, we recommend a flexible mattress. If you’re heavier, a firmer mattress will avoid that ‘boat effect’ where you end up sinking into the middle.
- What’s your favourite sleeping position?
To avoid back pain, it’s important to find a mattress that adapts to your sleeping position. If you sleep on your back, for example, it should be firmer, while medium-firm is better if you sleep on your side or front.
- Do you move around while you sleep?
Take note of our golden rule: the more you move around in the night, the firmer your mattress should be.
- Are you warm- or cold-blooded?
Don’t rely on your bedclothes alone. Your mattress also helps you to maintain the right temperature for sleep. For those who feel the heat, a pocket spring mattress is a safe bet thanks to the extra breathability. And if you’re always cold, your best option is a viscoelastic mattress.
Whatever you choose, make sure it’s the best
As you’ve seen, all mattresses have their strong points, but the important thing is to find the right one for you. Without a doubt, a quality product is just as important as how you sleep and the type you choose.
