A guide to a great night’s sleep - Finding the best mattress for you!

Sometimes, buying a mattress can be a very daunting task. With the array of options out there, it can be difficult to determine which mattress would be the right choice and so it turns into a stressful purchase and one that gets overlooked.

It’s incredibly important that you find the right mattress for yourself, as there isn’t always a one size fits all option. Sleep is crucial for our health and on average a person probably spends a third of their life in bed, so you want to make sure that you have the right mattress to suit your needs.

Before you lose anymore sleep over this, we’ve put together a quick guide to help you on your journey to a good night’s sleep.

 Firstly, making sure you have all your measurements correct is important. You need to consider the size of your room in order to establish what size bed frame and mattress would work better in your space. You should check what the standard UK mattress sizes before purchasing.

 It’s not just about the floor space you have either, you need to make sure you pick the size that it right for you. Studies have shown that having more space to sleep results in a more restful slumber but picking the mattress width should be based on an individual basis.

You also need to ensure that the mattress you choose is the right size for your bed frame, as you don’t want it to be too small or overhang over the frame.

Moving on to the most important part of making sure you get the best night’s sleep, picking the mattress type that suits your needs. The best way to identify which mattress it is you need is to look at what you think will help you sleep better. A lot of places also offer a sleep trial, which is great if your still unsure about the mattress you’ve purchased, so if you can’t visit a showroom, you have that option.

If your priority is finding a mattress to help relieve back pain or support your posture, then a memory foam mattress will offer flexibility and pressure relieving support.Sleepeezee G-Memory G4 Mattress (5 sizes available)
