SHOPPING FOR A NEW BED: CHECKLIST

Your bed and being able to get comfortable enough to fall into a deep restful night’s sleep is of utmost importance when you suffer from Chronic Pain.

Having a mattress which supports your spine enough to keep it aligned in order to avoid additional aches and pains during the day is crucial to a healthy lifestyle.

With the variety of options available on the market, it can be difficult to choose what is right for you and your partner.

Buying a mattress can be a really stressful experience and unfortunately, lying down on a mattress in a shop for a few minutes does not necessarily help when having to make a commitment for the next 10 years (which is roughly the life expectancy of a good mattress).

In order to avoid a bad experience, here are a few elements to remember before buying a new mattress:

When should I buy a new mattress?

If you wake up more than usual during the night and have additional aches and pains which seem to dissipate during the day, it might be time for you to buy a new mattress. Waiting for your mattress to get worse could rob you of an additional 1 hour’ sleep every single night.

Where should I start?

Just like any other big investment, looking for quality and value for money is important. What matters the most is finding a product which will last and help you feel comfortable. Usually look at companies which offer a warranty and are happy to let you try their product, allowing you to return it if you were not happy with it.

Should I buy online?

Thanks to warranties and several days of trial available, buying a mattress online, has become way more convenient than being overwhelmed by a salesperson who will try their best to make you buy on the day, without necessarily listening to your needs. Additionally, your mattress will come vacuum packed in a box which will be easy to set up as opposed to having to awkwardly bring it home from the shop.

 

Is a hard mattress better for my spine?

If a mattress is too hard or too soft, your bed will end up being uncomfortable and you might start waking up during the night as your body is desperately looking for the right position. It is important to look for a mattress which is just right for you.

At Tweak Slumber, we believe that good sleep is the cornerstone of good health. We design our mattresses to fit every individual, no matter what their sleeping position is, there's never any need to compromise with a partner when it comes to sleep.
