Five Ways to Choose the Right Mattress for Your Dream Home


Designing your dream home can be exhausting. From furniture to paint colours – the list of decisions to make are endless, and the right mattress is simply another addition to this long list. However, choosing the right mattress can make or break your dream home. Buying a mattress can often be an overwhelming process, due to the plethora of choices that need to be made. Here are five surefire ways to ensure that you choose the perfect mattress!

Consider your Sleeping Position

Are you a stomach-sleeper, side-sleeper or back-sleeper? Noting your sleeping position enables you to pick the mattress that is best suited for you. For instance, back-sleepers often need a medium-firm mattress with excellent back support, such as Peps Spine Guard. On the other hand, side sleepers may prefer a slightly softer mattress, that contours to the curves of your body and relieves pressure from the back and shoulders. For stomach sleepers, a mattress with supportive foundations and a touch of cushion is likely to provide optimal comfort. 

Choose an Ideal Level of Firmness

An oft-encountered sleep myth is that the firmer the mattress, the better it is. However, in reality, various factors may determine the level of firmness that is ideal for you. For instance, heavier individuals often prefer firmer beds, to ensure adequate support. Moreover, individuals with pain-related issues such as arthritis or fibromyalgia, should consult their doctors to determine an ideal level of firmness. If your mattress contours to your curves while providing adequate support, then you’ve got it right!

Pick a Mattress Type that Suits your Needs

Have you ever felt intimidated upon entering a mattress store due to the large number of terms and questions that you encounter? Understanding the various types of mattresses can make this process a lot easier! Each mattress material has specific properties that can cater to your unique sleep needs. For instance, a pocket-spring mattress like Peps Vivah ensures that your movements don’t wake up a sleeping partner. Memory foam mattresses are great for pain relief, while latex mattresses like Peps Organica are perfect for those who sleep hot. By picking the right type, you can transform your mattress into an individualised sleep solution!

Read Reviews

Buying a mattress can often seem like a huge decision. However, it can be made less daunting by reading reviews of the brand and type of mattress that you are considering. Reading reviews by sleep experts can help to equip you with all the information you need about your potential mattress. Additionally, customer reviews are the best sources of honest feedback and opinions. From durability to cost-effectiveness – other buyers will have all the answers you need!

Consider your Budget

The perfect mattress is not just easy on your back, but also your buck! Luckily, there are comfortable mattress options on all parts of the price-spectrum. Rather than opting for popular brands, it is more advisable to choose a mattress based on your specific needs and research. Warranties also help reduce maintenance costs, thereby increasing the durability of your mattress. Finally, shopping the sales can help you find good deals that give you the best value for your money.

Unfortunately, there is no all-encompassing definition of the perfect mattress. However, mattresses are carefully designed with specific properties that are intended to suit a range of needs and preferences. No dream house is complete without a mattress that ‘feels’ right, and allows for uninterrupted, rejuvenating sleep. By following these tips,you can bid adieu to sleepless nights, and hello to your new dream bedroom!
