Turn your Bedroom into a Sleep Sanctuary with the Right Mattress
Ever wake up stiff, numb, achy or irritable? Giveaway signs that you need a new mattress include a saggy or lumpy feel, or bedding that’s been in use for five to seven years. Like your favourite worn pair of shoes, your mattress can seem comfortable when, in fact, it has lost its ability to support your body. At Best Buy, you can take your pick from a wide selection of innerspring, orthopedic, memory foam mattresses and more from brands like Sealy, Serta, King Koil, Monarch, Safety 1st and Sportz.
Let your Body Decide What’s Best for You
Comfort labels like ultraplush or supersoft may seem appealing but, in reality, the names can be arbitrary when comparing models. The right mattress is one that meets your personal needs and preferences. Essentially, your spine should be aligned in the same way as when you’re standing with good posture. This means if you’re a side sleeper a too-firm mattress may not have enough give to let your shoulders and hips sink. Likewise, a mattress that’s too soft could feel like you’re sinking in quicksand.
Mattress Options Galore
Mattresses come in all makes and sizes, and it’s best to know the common types before setting your heart on one. With their steel coil system, innerspring mattresses offer a range of comfort choices, from fluffy as a cloud to extra firm. Memory foam mattresses are especially great for absorbing movement like a partner tossing and turning. The firmer version, latex (solid foam) mattresses, claims to be hypoallergenic. Other bedding types include orthopedic, designed to support your back and joints, pillow top, mouldable gel, and inflatable air mattresses.
Show you Care with Mattress Pads and Covers
Loving your new mattress? Protect it from everyday wear and tear, and even deter dust mites or pet dander. A pad placed above the mattress not only protects but also secures your sheets and adds extra-cushy support. Waterproof covers on crib mattresses are ideal. Most protective layers are machine washable, and encasements can offer allergy and bed bug protection.
