When you’ve purchased your new home in Sierra Vista, the fun part begins: Setting everything up in your new space. If you have decided to treat yourself to new mattresses for your new home, then there are some things you should keep in mind as you’re shopping. Set yourself up for a good night’s sleep with these mattress shopping tips.
Springs or Foam
One of the first things you should consider is if you prefer mattresses with springs or memory foam. Innerspring mattresses have tight coils inside the mattress, creating bounce and firmness. Memory foam mattresses don’t have the bounce of coils. Instead, the foam sinks to cradle your body as you sleep. The thickness of the foam determines how much you’ll sink when you get into the bed.
Memory foam absorbs movement, so it can be good for people who share a bed and don’t want to be disturbed by their partner’s tossing and turning, but they also tend to retain heat, so they may not be ideal for hot sleepers. If you’re looking for the best of both worlds, a hybrid mattress, which combines innersprings and memory foam, could be the right solution.
Typically, mattresses last for between five and ten years. Innerspring mattresses tend to wear out the fastest, as the quality of the springs can deteriorate over time, giving them less bounce and reducing the amount of support they provide. Memory foam mattresses last longer but will eventually develop worn spots.
If you’re someone who suffers from back pain or other chronic issues, the right mattress can make a big difference. Memory foam and hybrid mattresses alike can cradle pressure points and can alleviate pain so you can get a better night of rest. Adjustable mattresses are also great for easing pain so you can sleep.
