If you don’t do any research beforehand, you might walk into a mattress sale in Adelaide and assume they’re all essentially the same. However, no two mattresses are the same, and it’s important to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each type of mattress.
Innerspring. While still wildly popular today, innerspring mattresses were once the standard. The springs or coils have varying shapes and patterns depending on the type of support they aim to provide. Innerspring mattresses tend to be more affordable, but some are noisier than others and may wake you when you move in bed.
Latex. If you’re shopping a bed sale in Adelaide, you might notice that latex mattresses tend to be more expensive. This is because these mattresses are soft to the touch, dust-resistant, and don’t absorb or retain heat as easily as foam.
Memory foam. Many customers find memory foam mattresses to be more comfortable at first, as they cushion and conform to your body. However, they don’t offer as much support as innerspring mattresses, and they retain body heat, so you’ll sleep very warm.
Hybrids. Two different mattress types combined is a hybrid, and the idea is to offer the best of both types of mattresses. Hybrids often have a spring or coil base with a memory foam or latex top.
Adjustable. An adjustable mattress may work for you if you suffer from pain, sleep disturbances, or other medical conditions. You have the freedom to adjust the angle and position of the mattress, so you can find a comfortable solution to improve your quality of sleep. Plus, many adjustable mattresses also have features such as massage or temperature control, but these additions come with a price tag.
Figure out the firmness that works best for you. Mattress firmness is rated on a scale of 1-10, and most people prefer between a 3-8.
Choose the right size. When there are double beds, queen beds, and king beds in Adelaide, how are you meant to decide which is the right size for you? The rule of thumb for choosing a mattress size is to pick the largest mattress that fits comfortably in the room. For some, this may mean splurging on a big king-size mattress, but for others in smaller spaces, they may be on the lookout for comfortable double beds in Adelaide instead.
Everyone sleeps differently, so you need to invest in a mattress that offers you the best support for your unique sleeping style.
Back sleepers. Those who sleep on their backs tend to spread their weight evenly across the mattress. They need to find a medium-firm mattress to support their spine while they sleep.
Side sleepers. People who sleep on their side place pressure on their shoulders and hip joints and would benefit most from a soft-to-medium firmness level.
Front sleepers. Individuals who sleep on their stomachs place a lot of pressure on the pelvis, and their mattress needs to support their hips and chest to prevent back pain. Memory foam mattresses tend to be the go-to for front sleepers, as they cushion and conform to the hips and ease any strain. If you’re a front sleeper, make sure you invest in a good pillow to prevent neck strain.
Combination sleepers. Some people shift and move throughout the night. For example, they may fall asleep on their back and wake up on their stomachs. Combination sleepers find it more challenging to choose a mattress because their needs change throughout the night. We suggest that combination sleepers look at medium-to-firm mattresses, and we encourage them to come into Save A Lot Beds and have a chat with one of our friendly team members.
