Mattress Buyers Guide

When shopping for a mattress there are so many different factors which need to be considered. Boldstreet Beds presents to our customers the mattress buyers guide which contains carefully selected information to help you choose your mattress.

We were shocked to find out that 80% of mattress buyers spend around 2 minutes or less trying out the bed. This is so shocking because in reality you will spend around 3000 hours a year that’s 120+ full days on your mattress per year.

You will keep your mattress for quite some time and so it is important that you get it right the first time. If your mattress is for two of you it is important that you both go shopping for it together so that you are both comfortable with the choice.

Time management is a big thing when shopping for a mattress you need to ensure you leave yourself enough time to try out the mattresses and that you are not rushed into decision. You need to be able to try out a whole range of mattresses to see which is best for you.

Come to Boldstreet Beds and do not be embarrassed about lying down fully on the mattress, adopt a normal sleeping position when trying out bed and ensure that it feels comfortable whilst providing support.

Support will be guided on factors like your weight, height, build and preferred sleeping position so it is important to make sure that you get the right mattress for you and that you take the time trying them out.

The general rule is that the heavier you are the firmer you will need your mattress too be although this is more of an unwritten rule. When you lie on the mattress you need to ensure that it isn’t too soft as this will cause a slouch in your posture and lead to back pain. In contrast though you cannot have it too firm because then pressure points will be created.

How can I test whether or not a mattress is supportive?

A great way to test whether or not your mattress is suitable is to lie on your back and then there will be a hollow in your back try and slide a flat hand into this hollow. If the hand slides in easily then the bed is too firm as there is a gap presented which makes it easy; on the other hand if it is really difficult to slide your hand in then your sinking into the bed and it is too soft.

Comfort is a subjective matter in regards to choosing a mattress and because there are lots of choices around from memory foam to pocket sprung you need to choose the one which is right for you. Getting a good night’s sleep is extremely important. it affects your health and daily life so make sure you get it right and come to Boldstreet Beds for your mattress.
