A comfortable bed is vital to having a good night’s sleep, and one of the most important parts of the bed is the mattress. There are many types of mattress, from pocket-sprung to memory foam, and different people may feel more or less comfortable on different types. Here’s a rundown of all you need to know about mattresses and how to pick the perfect one for you.
Mattresses have a shelf life, and you know you need a new one if any of the following apply:
There are a few things to consider before committing to a mattress:
Mattresses are generally either sprung or filled, however there are also hybrid versions that have both.
Spring mattresses come in two main types:

Hybrid mattresses offer a middle ground between the support of a non-sprung mattress and the responsive feel of a sprung mattress. However the quality of the mattress depends on the interior filling and type of spring used.
Once you’ve got your perfect mattress, it might take some time before you get completely used to it. Give it a few nights and let it shape to your body before thinking about returning it.
Maintaining your mattress properly will help extend its life, meaning you won’t have to spend another fortune in a years’ time. Remember to turn your mattress over 3-4 times a year so the wear and tear is spread evenly, and vacuum the mattress when you turn it to keep allergens and dust at bay. Air your mattress when you first buy it, and continue doing this every day to let moisture and sweat evaporate.
