Sleep is something we all do: on average we sleep about around 30% of our lives. so it’s very important that when we sleep, we sleep well. A good mattress is therefore indispensable. what should you look out for? Here we explain how to choose the right mattress.
To begin with, it is important to look at your physical features and work further on that basis. Length, posture, weight and health are important features to take into consideration. A mattress can help relieve or prevent certain physical complaints. Think for example of neck, shoulder and/or back problems. Furthermore, it is also important to take into account the following aspects when purchasing a mattress.
Hygiene and Allergies
If you are allergic to dust mites or a certain material, make sure you choose a hypoallergenic version. To ensure hygiene, it is also important to look at the washability of the mattress. Can you take the cover off? And can it be washed at 60 degrees? These are important questions to ask yourself.
Because things like weight, sleeping position and other factors are important when picking a suitable mattress, it is also helpful to look at adjustability. Note whether the mattress can be flipped or adjusted in hardness or softness.
A well ventilated mattress is crucial. We lose a lot of fluid overnight and although some of it evaporates, a large part also ends up in the mattress. Therefore, choose materials that are breathable and enjoy a good night rest!
You will only really know if you have chosen the right mattress after you have spent some time lying on it. If you don’t like the mattress, you can always choose a different one. Every sleeping position is different and this should also be in line with the expectations of the mattress. Therefore, always choose after you have thought carefully about the various points mentioned above.
