Have you been waking up feeling less than energized?The answer might be in your sleep quality and
not sleep quantity.But purchasing a new
mattress is anything but exhilarating. The industry has become so inundated with
technological terms and specs that it’s hard to know what you need from a
mattress.The most important thing in our opinion is
finding your comfort profile. As you look at the four profiles below ask
yourself the question; 'If you were in a living room without a bed where would
you sleep?' On the floor, on the floor with a blanket down, on a sofa, on a sofa
with pillows or in a recliner.
FIRMProfile- wanting a solid,
flat, firm feeling under you while you sleep. Mattresses with this comfort
level have less “give” when you turn in bed. Ideal for people who don’t like to
feel that they are falling into bed or otherwise lying on an overly soft
PLUSH Profile: wanting softer than the firm, but not as cushion-like
as the Pillowtop.
PILLOWTOP Profile: wanting the most softness, with a
cushiony feel. If you talk about luxurious, comfortable,
soft “sleeping on a cloud” feeling. Note, the Pillowtop comfort level does not compromise on support underneath.
EUROTOP: only mentioned because you will hear this term but this is much like the Pillowtop, the difference between
Eurotops and Pillowtops is mainly cosmetic, there is no comfort difference
between Eurotops and Pillowtop.
Once you determine your comfort
choice than you can look into the different types of sleep technologies
available which are:Innerspring,
Pocketed Coil, Memory Foam, Latex and Hybrids (Pocket Coil with Latex Surface),
below are some sample suggestions based on common problems we often hear from
1)WANTING A STILL SLEEP:
Be sure to look at Pocketed Coil, Memory Foam or Latex options these have the
best motion separation.
2)WANTING COOL SLEEP:
is the most breathable material and allows you to sleep cooler.
3)WANTING SUPPORT AND TEMPERATURE CONTROL :
are ideal, the pocketed coils offer the centre support while latex provides the
comfort of pressure relief.
rubber has a thicker cell wall which allows it to retain its shape and resist
rupture better than foam.
5)WANTING A BED FOR A GUEST ROOM:
is sufficient and the coil count doesn’t have to be higher than 390.
6)NURSING AN INJURY OR HEALTH ISSUES:
beds are a great solution, the memory foam and latex mattresses work the best
as they are able to handle the bending required, again the latex will retain it's shape better.
In the end when shopping for sleep,
‘Comfort is King’ the feeling you have when lying on a mattress outweighs
everything. We recommend a 10 minute sleep test, lay down on a mattress and see
how close you come to sleep in those 10 minutes, don’t worry someone will wake
you eventually if it turns out to be the right bed but be sure not to book any
important appointments that day. After all we do spend a 1/3 of our life in bed so
we let's enjoy this decision!
