The foundation of a good night's sleep is the bed on which you rest. But which mattress is right for?
It can sometimes feel like an overwhelming task choosing which mattress is going to help with your morning back pain, or help prevent your allergies, or support you whilst pregnant. We all have different requirements and we all come in different shapes and sizes.
So we're going to say it - size matters. Surprisingly two people sharing a double mattress have only as much sleeping space as a baby in a cot. If you and your partner are disturbing each other then it is time to invest in a bigger bed, one of the most common sleeping problems is not having enough space.
You might have noticed that mattress names often have numbers in them, this often tells us how many spring are in a mattress. The Silentnight 1200 Pocket Deluxe for example, has 1200 springs in it.
When buying in a new mattress it is better to purchase a new base also. Your mattress and base work in harmony with each other, placing a quality mattress on an old base will stop you from feeling all the amazing benefits.
Seven is the magic number when it comes to your mattress. That means every seven years it is time to change your mattress, during this time many beds can deteriorate by as much as 75%.
It is important to not forget the important of pillow talk too. We recommend changing your pillows every two to three years, pillows play an important part in aligning your shoulders and spine.
