How to choose the perfect mattress

Do you sleep well on the whole?

Oh I used to, but my bed has been a bit lumpy and bumpy recently. Using a mattress topper has helped but we really do need to invest in a new king size mattress. It’s something I need to consider carefully as last time we just went with the  cheapest option and to be honest it has proved to be most uncomfortable. We need the perfect mattress not just the cheapest.

Mattresses are so important aren’t they? We spend about 1/3 of every day on one, yet often people give so little thought to them. They are  key to both good back care and a good nights sleep. Both are essential to our health and well being yet we will often not consider it an investment in the way we might a sofa. yet we use it more!

I have found a lovely king size mattress at Mattressman, who also share some great advice

  • King size mattresses are great for couples who want that extra bit of room up from a double. Extra room means no being kicked and allows you a really good stretch
  • To be perfect for you, you need to pick your budget and work with that but remember quality matters
  • Pocket strung mattresses are recommended for those who share a bed

I would really recommend you read this useful  mattress buying guide and make sure your sizings are absolutely correct. Their mattress buying guide also details the different types of mattresses available which you should have a good read through before deciding what is right for you.

Knowing how to choose the perfect mattress for you you is well worth your time and attention. It’s all about your health and well-being and you matter!

    Choosing the perfect mattress can be really difficult, especially when you have a partner and both of you have varying preferences. The mattress buying guide is really helpful. There’s so much to consider when buying a mattress these days and there’s so many different types to choose from!

    My partner is moving in with me and I’m honestly just using a sofa bed, right now I wanted to purchase a real bed with a super comfy mattress so both of us would be able to rest comfortably. You’ve said that king size mattresses are great for couples and the pocket strung kind of mattresses are most recommended to those who share beds, I’m gonna consider that tip on buying a mattress. Great, thanks!
