Do I need a new mattress? And how do I find the perfect one for me?

The first of March marks The Sleep Council’s annual ‘National Bed Month’, creating awareness around the importance of a comfortable and supportive bed and its role in the quality of our sleep.

So, this March, The Sleep Council are encouraging us all to carry-out a bed MOT. With questions around the age, quality and look of your mattress, this tool can be a great indicator of whether you need an upgrade, and can be found here.

If it’s looking like 2019 is going to be the year you treat yourself to a new bed or mattress, the sleep council also rounded up some tips to help make that decision easier.

Firstly, they emphasise the importance of giving yourself enough time when trying each mattress. The choice between firm or soft, foam or spring, gel or latex can be one that you’ve never faced before and it’s important to learn the difference before making a decision. Find out more about find the perfect mattress with Silentnight’s Bed Buying Guide.

If the bed is also going to be for two, it’s advised that you and your partner engage in the decision making to make sure you both find a bed you’re going to be comfortable with. Always take into account any allergies or health conditions you may have that could be impacted by a new mattress, and ask advice from manufacturers or sales assistants as they’ll be able to point you in the right direction.

The Sleep Council also highlight how the flexibility or rigidness of slats on a bed frame will affect the durability of the mattress overall, with flexible slats prolonging the life of a mattress. Following this, the material and type of bed frame your mattress will be placed on will also impact the feeling of the bed. If buying both a mattress and a bed frame it may be worth trying both together in-store.

Finally, looking at an environmentally sustainable mattress could be a good ethical choice in today’s climate. Silentnight have recently launched the Eco Comfort Breathe collection, which features breathable and sustainable fibres that combine to give you a fresh sleeping experience that doesn’t cost the Earth. In addition to this your old bed and mattress can be recycled, so refrain from throwing it away and put it towards your new mattress or recycle it where you can.
