What type of mattress should I choose?

When all you want is something comfortable to sleep on and take away the stresses of today’s living, you might find trying to choose the right mattress a stressful business too. Here at M6 Beds, we’re keen to take the stress out of helping you find the right mattress with the following tips!

How much should I pay for a good mattress?

The size of your budget will obviously have some bearing on your choices, but you do tend to get what you pay for with mattresses. The more expensive mattresses will not only be more comfortable but they will last longer too.

Coil or foam?

You will find a large choice of mattresses available in most bed stores including some hybrid examples but you biggest decision will be whether to go for foam or coil mattresses. Memory foam for example will fit around the contours of your body giving you a very comfortable night’s sleep. If you prefer your mattress bouncy, then it has to be coil. Most people now opt for foam.

How firm should it be?

Some people like a firm mattress, some prefer soft but a lot depends on what type of sleeper you are. If you sleep on your back then medium firm is better, if you sleep on your stomach, then it is advisable to err on the side of above average firmness. If you tend to sleep on your side then you may find a softer mattress more comfortable.
