3 Considerations For Choosing a Memory Foam Mattress
Keep in mind the following three factors when making your next memory foam mattress purchase:
For the majority of shoppers, this is the most important consideration when purchasing a new mattress. Everyone wants their bed to be comfortable, but not everyone has the same idea of comfort. There are a few subtle things to think about when it comes to picking out the right bed.
The first question we ask our customers is “What position do you sleep in at night?”
People will generally fall into one of three categories:
Most folks are side sleepers, including those who sleep sort of on their stomach but with an arm up and a leg out. Side sleepers need something soft enough that they don’t put too much pressure on their hips or shoulders. Memory foam is one of the most conforming sleep systems and provides superior pressure relief for those more sensitive areas.
Back Sleepers and flat-on-the-stomach sleepers have an easier time sleeping, so firmer is generally better. Back and stomach sleepers still need some cushioning to take into account the natural curve of the spine, so don’t throw out your mattress and go running to the flooring department of your local hardware store.
Temperature is easily one of the most overlooked aspects of sleep comfort and is crucial to getting a long, deep night of sleep. Manufacturers have only recently addressed the “too hot” nature of many memory foam beds.
Two key improvements in memory foam technology:
- Manufacturersm such as Enso, have begun channeling the foam portions in the top of the mattress to help give ventilation between you and the mattress, guaranteeing a cool comfy night’s sleep.
- Gel injections have been used to keep the ambient temperature of the bed much lower.
Combined, these measures have worked to create a more optimal sleeping experience.
Most traditional beds will last approximately 5-7 years before needing to be replaced. Sadly, the average person is more likely to replace theirs every 10 years. That means there are a lot of unhappy sleepers. Springs fatigue over time, and with daily use your regular mattress will develop peaks and valleys. Memory foam mattresses, with their superior ability to retain shape, will last 20 to 25 years on average, without needing to be replaced.
Our memory foam mattresses even come with a 20 year warranty. Additionally, memory foam mattresses are as convenient as they are comfortable. There’s no maintenance required, no flipping, no rotating, and no undercoating package. The only thing you have to do with a memory foam mattress is sleep on it!
