One of the primary discomforts which a person can experience while trying to sleep at night is an uncomfortable mattress. Continual shifting in an effort to move to a more comfortable position can be a cause of sleeplessness at night. A simple change of mattress can increase comfort and lead to an ability to fall asleep far more easily. Of all the types of mattress, we picked memory foam mattresses as being the best mattress for a good night’s sleep.
The highly acclaimed “Memory” foam mattress consists of a unique type of foam which adapts to the shape of your body, therefore enabling the body to lie in its natural position, rather than the shape of an ordinary spring mattress. Memory foam mattresses can also help to relieve back-pain, a major cause of sleeplessness.
Alternatively, you can continue to use your current mattress, but create a more comfortable sleeping surface through purchasing a feather spread topper. Feather spreads are cheaper than a new mattress and can provide far more comfort than a bare, spring mattress.
Many stores selling mattresses (including Ikea) use a grading system to guide your purchase of a mattress. If you’re looking for a mattress which is firmer, or softer than your previous mattress, then you can use this system in place to be guided towards a mattress which you’re looking for.
Researching different types of mattress over the internet can be beneficial, but it is advisable that you view and test out the mattress in person before buying it. Most retailers will have no problem with you touching the mattress when considering whether to purchase it.
It’s worth noting that mattresses purchased from other parts of Europe or Ikea will have different dimensions to a standard British sized bed.
