High quality sleep is crucial for your overall well-being and happiness.  Having the perfect mattress will enhance the quality of your sleep, so choosing the right mattress is key.  There are many options to choose from and it can be overwhelming to make a decision.  In this article, we’ll discuss three factors that you should consider when choosing a mattress

Finding the Perfect Fit for Your Comfort

A vast array of mattress types exist, all with their own attributes and benefits. The most popular options are foam mattresses and spring mattresses.  Foam mattresses are exceptionally good for comfort and pressure-relieving properties.  These mattresses conform to your body’s contours, providing excellent support and reducing the risk of pressure points. Foam mattresses are ideal for those who prefer a more cushioned and contouring feel.  Spring mattresses, use a system of coils to provide support and comfort. The number, thickness, and arrangement of coils determine the level of support offered. Spring mattresses are highly durable, offer excellent breathability, and provide a traditional, bouncy feel that many sleepers enjoy. When opting for one type of mattress take into account your personal preferences and any requirements due to back pain and allergies.

Support and Firmness - Finding Your Optimal Level of Comfort

A good night’s sleep is often dependent on the support and firmness of your mattress.  Considerations that have to be taken on board when selecting a mattress are your body weight and sleeping position.  Side sleepers may benefit from a slightly softer mattress to alleviate pressure points, while back and stomach sleepers may prefer a firmer mattress for proper spinal alignment.  Comfort is subjective, and therefore personal preference is also very important when choosing a mattress.  Avoid mattresses with no edge support as they usually give a feeling of ‘rolling off’, even more if you tend to sleep near the bed’s edge.

Durability and Quality

The durability and quality of a mattress are paramount to its longevity.  Always take a good look at the materials and finishing – reinforced edges, quality foams, and sturdy springs are what you should be after.  All our mattresses are categorized as Basic, Plus, or Gold.  The ‘basic’ tier is great value for money, the ‘plus’ category offers more choice and quality at a sensible price whereas the ‘gold’ category is our super quality tier with all products made with the finest materials but still at an affordable price. 

The guarantee  periods are a reflection of the great quality JYSK offers.  The plus spring mattresses come with a 15-year extended guarantee and the gold with a 25-year extended guarantee.  For foam mattresses, it is guaranteed that the shape of the mattress will be stable and that general use will not compress the foam.  Full details about our guarantees are available here.

Creating a Perfect Sleeping Experience

In addition to choosing the right mattress, other elements in your bedroom can contribute to a perfect sleeping experience.  Duvets add style and comfort to your bedroom. Opt for duvets made from soft and breathable materials, such as cotton or linen, to ensure a cosy and pleasant sleeping environment.  Invest in high-quality bed linen that feels soft against your skin. Ones made of breathable and hypoallergenic materials such as cotton, allowing airflow and helping regulate body temperature for hours of comfortable sleep are usually the must-haves.  Pillows also play an important role in the sleeping experience as pillows support your neck and spine alignment.  Always select pillows that provide the right level of support and comfort for a relaxing sleep.

Finally, mattress toppers can enhance the comfort and support of your mattress. These pads come in various materials such as air memory foam and add cushioning or relief pressure.
