Getting a good night’s rest involves a lot of factors, but what you’re sleeping on is the foundation of them all. If you’re in the market for a new mattress, Sit N Sleep has several mattress options to choose from, and our staff is dedicated to help you find the best one for you. Not all mattresses are created equal, and there is not one go-to brand or style that will work for everyone. Consider these three key factors as you try to find the right mattress for you.
Think about your morning. Do you wake up feeling refreshed and relaxed, or do you wake up stiff and achy and still exhausted? If you wake up with minor pain that goes away within half an hour of getting out of bed, your mattress is likely the main culprit of the pain. Lack of support or too much support is generally the cause of discomfort, so consider getting a middle-of-the-line mattress when it comes to support, though keep in mind that airing on the side of firmness is generally better for lessening pain. Our Sherwood Kendall Luxury Firm mattress and our Beautyrest Meredith Extra Firm mattress are both great options to consider.
Whether you’re a side-, stomach-, or back-sleeper will depend on what type of mattress you need. In general, side-sleepers prefer memory foam mattresses, while back-sleepers will need something on the firmer side, and stomach-sleepers will likely prefer a mattress that’s neither too firm nor too soft.
Testing out a mattress is vital to your comfort, both in terms of making a large purchase and getting a good night’s sleep. Experts recommend that you spend 10-15 minutes lying on a mattress before making a decision about its comfort. Ask to try out several different firmness levels and styles (pillow top, memory foam, etc.) in similar brands and price points to help you make the best decision.
