Nothing quite beats the feeling of sinking into the comfort of your own bed at the end of a long day.
So why let an old mattress get in the way of this?
It’s true, mattresses don’t last forever and it is often difficult to know when to change them. We’ve provided some tell-tale signs below to help you know when it’s time to separate yourself from your beloved mattress.
I WAKE UP WITH PAIN
If you’re waking up with pain throughout your neck, shoulders and back, your mattress isn’t supporting your body whilst you sleep through the night. Mattresses are one of the most used items in your home and over time, gradual wear means that they lose their ability to support your body properly. As well as this, pain is often the first sign that you are on the wrong comfort level.
YOUR MATTRESS IS GETTING OLD
Studies have shown that the life-span of a mattress is 8 – 10 years, but this varies according to the manufacturer and also how you sleep. What’s important is the knowledge that your mattress won’t last forever, and excessive wear and tear will age it faster.
If your mattress is old – and you can’t remember when you replaced it – this is a clear sign that you may need a new one!
A NEW EXPERIENCE
Sleeping away from home can be difficult, and can often lead to interrupted sleep when you’re in unfamiliar surroundings with unfamiliar sounds.
So if you find that you are getting a better night’s sleep elsewhere, away from your own mattress, it’s definitely time to think about upgrading!
TIME TO UPGRADE
They say age is just a number… but as you get older, you may need to change the firmness of your mattress to combat pain or pressure points. On top of that, the best mattress for you may change every 7 to 8 years after the age of 40. Of course, how firm can depend on whether you sleep on your back, front or even on your side.
The Perfect Mattress For Me
If you’re thinking about investing in a new mattress, don’t put it off!
We’ve provided some useful tips below to help you find the perfect mattress to suit your price, size, comfort and lifestyle requirements.
- Always try before you buy. We’re not talking about simply pressing your hand on a mattress, you have to TRY it.
- You need to know what your preferences are, and if you’re unsure of the varying firmness levels, don’t be afraid to ask for help and advice.
- If you have back pain, you should go for a mattress that offers supportive qualities. A good quality, supportive mattress will support any painful joints you might have throughout the night – which means less tossing and turning for you
