How to Buy the Perfect Mattress, Pillows and Linens for You
Your bed is an important part of your home. It’s where you spend a lot of time, where you relax after a long day and where you get the rest you need to take on tomorrow. Choosing the right components for a great night’s sleep isn’t an easy task, so here are some tips to help take the pressure off.
Choosing the Perfect Mattress
Start this potentially daunting task by focusing on your sleep needs. Are you looking for more support or extra comfort or do you just need more space? The only way to know what a mattress feels like is to lay on it, so prepare yourself for a very comfortable shopping experience and take your time. Make sure you or you and your partner have plenty of room to move around and stretch. The mattress should also conform to your body and support your spine. The level of support you need depends on your usual sleeping position and your body structure. With your budget in mind, assess your options but remember that you will have this bed for the next 8-10 years. Your quality of sleep is critical to your overall health and wellness so getting the mattress that will provide you with comfort and support night after night is an important investment.
And while your mattress supports you, don’t forget to consider what is supporting it. The right box spring and bed frame will help maintain your mattress warranty and a stylish headboard is a finishing touch.
Choosing the Perfect Pillow
The right pillow is an essential part of your sleep system. Pillows are designed in many different shapes, sizes and with varying technologies to help you get a great night’s sleep and properly support your head and neck. It’s important to get an expert “pillow fitting” and try out the pillows on a bed similar to the one you have at home before making the purchase. Standing up in an aisle and scrunching your head onto plastic packaging makes it very difficult to assess if the pillow will work for you.
Choosing the Perfect Linens
Breathable cotton is a great choice when it comes to bedding but there are many other choices that can help add that luxurious feel to your sleep and hypoallergenic choices like rayon from bamboo. Keep in mind that thread count is not the best indicator of a sheet’s overall quality.
