Choosing the Right Mattress for You

Choosing the Right Mattress for You

When was the last time you got a great nights sleep? No interruptions, no tossing and turning, just a full night of sleep, waking up truly rested? If you can’t remember the last time, chances are you need a new mattress (or no kids). 

Let us take you through the mattress basics so that you can finally get a good night’s sleep, every night from now on.


How Often Should You Change Your Mattress?

We have all had an old mattress and asked ourselves the question, how long should a mattress last? The answer will depend on your specific mattress. Some mattresses can be flipped to give them a new lease on life, and some poor quality mattresses will only last you a few years at most before they lose their supportive benefits. Generally speaking, your average mattress should be replaced every 7 to 10 years.


How to Choose a Mattress

The first step to choosing the right mattress for you is to know what you like. There is no one-size-fits-all mattress. Each mattress is different and will be perfect for a specific type of sleeper. Do you like a soft mattress you can sink into or a firm base? Do you want bounce or give? 


Another thing to keep in mind is your sleeping partner. If you share your bed with someone, it’s important to not only accommodate each other’s mattress preferences but also your joint preferences. If one of you is a light sleeper and the other tosses and turns, consider a mattress that absorbs movement. If one sleeping partner has a high body temperature that makes the entire bed uncomfortably warm, consider a temperature-controlled mattress.


Everything from the size to the style will ultimately depend on preference, which is why knowing your mattress preferences will inform you how to choose your mattress. Once you know your preferences, check out our top choices in different mattress styles.


High Support

One of our favourite mattresses for overall support is the Euro Top Mattress. This mattress utilises high-density foam and a self-reliant coil system, providing ample support with medium firmness.

Soft and Gentle

For something on the softer side that still gives you body the support it needs, we recommend the Pillow Top Mattress. With a quilted surface atop a medium-firm mattress, you will get all the health benefits of a supportive mattress with the gentle comfort of a soft mattress. As an added benefit, it also has an independent coil system that will stop you from feeling any movement from your partner during the night.

Temperature Controlled

If you find yourself overheating throughout the night, your mattress might be to blame. Our Giselle Bedding Firm Mattress is covered with knitted fabric designed to dissipate heat. You can also use a Cool Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper to keep your bed cool and comfortable all night long.
