How to Select a Mattress
Your mattress is the most important healthcare product in your household. Your mattress is a source of relief and comfort and a good night’s sleep has a refreshing and re-energising effect. Use this guide to help you select the right mattress. Feel free to request a quote and ask any questions. We will happily advise you and make a recommendation on the best mattress for you.
STEP 1 SELECT YOUR MATTRESS SIZE
Space is a critical component of a good night’s sleep. Go as big as your budget and bedroom size will allow. Select a mattress size that gives you enough room for easy, free movement. Couples should have a queen or king size mattress to ensure both individuals have enough space to feel comfortable.
STEP 2 SELECT YOUR SUPPORT & COMFORT PREFERENCE
SOFT, MEDIUM OR FIRM?
When people say they prefer a firm mattress, often what they mean is a supportive mattress. Firmness refers to the surface feel or comfort preference of a mattress. Latex Mattress Australia offers a full range of densities (or firmness) to suit every preference. The density of the latex depends on your weight and preferred comfort level.
People weighing less than 90 kilograms, or lighter weight people, including children and the elderly, will need a medium density mattress. A medium density latex mattress will offer the same support as a firm density latex mattress, when correctly matched to bodyweight. Also, the cover of the mattress will have an impact on the surface softness and feel of the mattress.
STEP 3 – WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU?
Consider what is most important to you.
Comfort; The most important thing to consider is your own comfort level. To find a mattress you’re comfortable with you need to consider several other factors, like the size, firmness and type of materials used in the mattress.
Support; You want to ensure the mattress is the correct density for you, allowing the mattress to conform to your body. Every time you move, twist or turn in your sleep, your mattress should quickly respond by adjusting itself to your new position. Hence, your body remains in a constant state of relaxation and comfort, eliminating pressure points and providing correct spinal alignment.
Chemical free sleeping environment; Our latex mattresses are manufactured without using any chemicals whatsoever. Our latex mattresses are made using 100% natural rubber and are free from any harmful or toxic substances, to provide you with the healthiest sleep option.
Durability & guarantee; Look for a good guarantee. The guarantee, of course, is the most important aspect of a mattress brand’s customer support system. The longer the guarantee, the better. Often the guarantee will portray the quality of the mattress. Latex Mattress Australia offers an unrivalled 21 year guarantee on our latex mattresses, for your complete peace of mind.
STEP 4 – RESEARCH
Conduct your research; read product reviews. A small amount of time spent researching your mattress choices can pay huge dividends by contributing to your comfort and wellbeing for years to come. Latex Mattress Australia has the highest independently rated latex mattress in Australia.
