Many home owners are switching to memory foam mattresses as they believe that memory foam mattresses offer better support and a restful night’s sleep. Since memory foam mattresses are priced higher than your usual spring mattress, here are some tips on how to buy a memory foam mattress.
The size of your bed frame – Memory foam mattresses come in all shapes and sizes. Therefore, if you are buying a bed, you can choose from single, queen to king size beds in steel, wood or modern style platform beds to suit your space.
Research foam types – Regular foam mattresses offer a soft cradle which minimizes pressure. Gel memory foam, on the other hand, will provide better support and aid to relieve chronic pain, sore muscles, and body stress. For those who feel hot during the night, look at an air-cool memory foam mattress. Air-cool memory foam will filter out the heat and help you sleep comfortably throughout the night.
Mattress topper for added comfort – A mattress topper together with a memory foam mattress will give you that sensation of sleeping on a cloud. If you want firmness, invest in a latex mattress These toppers are available in soft, medium to extra firm for additional support and balance.
Thickness – Ideally you should look at a memory foam mattress that is between 10-14 inches thick.
