Do you toss and turn in your bed at night wondering why you can’t fall asleep? Do you wake up tired and grumpy? It might be because of your mattress…
According to a study, adult Canadians generally poor quality of sleep and have shorter sleep cycles which puts us at a higher risk of diabetes and depression. Ideally, you should have at least 8 hours a night. Your mattress plays a big role in determining the quality of your sleep, so make the right decision for your body.
Given the many choices of mattresses, it’s easy to fall for the ultra-premium mattress or one made of memory foam. However, not all types of mattresses are going to work for you.
Make an educated decision
Due to personal preference, your body type, and physical health, what you determine is best for you will vary from person to person. With this in mind, here are some factors you should consider before buying a mattress:
The cost of a new mattress depends on the brand, size, and the type of mattress. While mattress prices can cost upwards of thousands of dollars, most range between $500 to $1,200. To minimize the cost without compromising on quality, keep an eye out for coupons or sales, especially on holiday weekends (i.e. Labour Day).
Before buying a mattress, consult with your physician if you any issues such as a sore back or chronic knee pain. They can advise you on whether a firm or soft mattress is best for you. You should also consider your weight and height. For instance, if you are overweight, a soft mattress would be easier on your back.
- Sleeping Position
Just as your body type is an important factor, how you sleep should also to be kept in mind to determine the level of firmness your mattress should have. For example, side sleepers require a less firm mattress than someone who sleeps on their stomach.
There are many kinds of mattresses available and each has its advantages and disadvantages. For example, foam and adjustable ones work wonders for people with back and joint pain.
Brands like Tempur-Pedic, Sealy, and Beautyrest (All available at Mattressville) are known for quality and their superior level of comfort. They also tend to last longer and provide more comfort thanks to added features like pillow tops and remote adjustability.

- Your mattress is more than 8-10 years old
- You don’t feel rested when you wake up
- You wake up with aches and pains
- You find your couch more comfortable than your bed
- Your mattress caves in the middle
