How to choose a mattress

There are several considerations to consider before choosing a new mattress.


Although the cost is always taken into account, you should try to spend as much as you can really pay for a new mattress, in the end, you will spend a lot of time on it.

The size

If you are installing a new mattress on an existing bed base, be sure to measure the old mattress or the exact area of ​​the bed base on which the mattress lies. This ensures that you buy the right size and avoid a refund. Keep in mind that your mattress should not only fit your existing bed, but you must also get into the bedroom first!

Bed base

If you support an existing bed, make sure that the new mattress is right for a person. Sofa beds are very different from trellised bed bases, and the wrong combination of the mattress with the type of base can seriously damage the mattress you just spent good money on. Manufacturers usually recommend buying mattresses and a base together, so keep this in mind when making a purchase.


One of the main considerations when choosing a mattress is the level of rigidity and support that it offers. In general, you know which one you prefer, medium or hard, but it’s worth trying a few different degrees to get the right one. This is especially important if you are replacing a mattress that is not otherwise damaged, but which causes lack of sleep due to general discomfort.


This is a rather subjective area, but it needs to be carefully considered. When you first lay down on a new mattress, your initial reaction is not necessarily the right one. Well, a mattress that is too hard and soft is easy to spot, but when you get more similar styles of support and comfort, you should spend some time relaxing on the mattress before buying it.
