Four Tips for Choosing the Right Mattress



With so many different types of mattresses on the market, it can be hard to decide which one is right for you. After all, you will most likely be spending 8 hours a night with it for several years, so choosing one you’re comfortable with is incredibly important. Here are a few pointers to start you off when it comes to mattress shopping:

How Much to Spend

Mattresses can range in price from under £100 to over £10,000, so there is a huge variety to choose from and some debate about how much you need to spend. We’re strong believers that you don’t need to spend a fortune to have a high quality mattress that provides a great night’s sleep.

Firm vs. Soft

Mattresses typically available in firm, medium and soft varieties. The best kind of mattress for you is largely determined by your body weight. Softer ones tend to suit lighter people, while those with a larger frame will often prefer a firm mattress. It’s important to get it right, as a mattress that is the wrong tension will impair your sleep and lead to frequent tossing and turning. Don’t compromise on a good night’s sleep – make sure you pick a mattress that suits you.

Foam vs. Springs

It’s a matter of personal preference whether you go for a foam or pocket spring mattress – both have their advantages, and it all comes down to what feels most comfortable for you. Some mattresses now combine both - our pocket spring mattresses are topped with 5cm of memory foam, giving you the best of both worlds!

Test It

At Mattress Guru, we know that the only way to be sure whether a mattress is right for you is by testing it out. Just testing it for a few minutes in a shop or for a few nights really isn’t enough, so we offer a 30 day test period on all our mattresses. See how it feels after a month and change it for a firmer or softer one if it’s not quite right.
