Sleep is something that every couple could do with a little more of. Many people simply don’t get enough, or the sleep they do get is low-quality. While a lot goes into how well a couple will sleep, their mattress is at or near the top of the list.
A cozy and comfortable mattress, with adequate support, is crucial for a solid night of sleep. However, you do more than sleep in your bed. You also want a good mattress for sex and one that is comfortable to relax in. But with so many choices, how do you know which is right for you?
With that in mind, this article is going to go over how to correctly choose a mattress as a couple to ensure you land on the right option.
Decide on the Right Size
When it comes to choosing a mattress, the size is among the most important considerations. Mattresses can range from a single that is barely enough space for one person, all the way up to a size that can easily fit both of you, with room for your pets as well. You need a mattress that allows both of you enough space to sleep without negatively impacting the sleep of your partner.
Of course, be sure to measure your room and how much space you have beforehand. The last thing you want is to get a mattress that is too big for your bedroom. Larger mattresses are often more expensive, as well. Also, if you size up a mattress, you may also need new sheets and a new frame, as well.
The Mattress Type is Incredibly Important
Once you have decided on a size, it’s time to think about the type of mattress you want. There are many different types of mattress types you can consider, each with their own pros and cons. The options include innerspring, latex, air, adjustable, memory foam, hybrid and many others. There is no right or wrong choice when it comes to type, it simply matters what you value in a mattress.
Some may value support more than anything, while others will want something that is soft and incredibly comfortable. Some mattresses can also be warmer than others, so keep that in mind if you sleep warm and prefer a cool sleeping environment. The cost of mattresses can also vary depending on the type.
Find the Right Level of Firmness
Another thing you and your spouse need to go over is the level of firmness you desire in the mattress. Oftentimes, finding the right firmness involves considering your sleeping style and position. Those who sleep on their side or stomach may need a softer bed, while those on their back enjoy the support of a firmer one.
In general, innerspring mattresses are more firm than memory foam. However, there are also softer spring mattresses and foam with more firmness, so always try out or read the description/reviews of a mattress before buying.
Some beds have customizable or different levels of firmness on each side, but they can often be a little on the pricier side. If you don’t want to splurge on one of them, it’s a good idea to find a compromise that works for both sides.
In conclusion, we hope that this blog post has been able to help you choose the best mattress. The right mattress can help ensure that both you and your partner have restful and comfortable sleeps.
