Find the Perfect Bed Mattress..

The biggest factor in choosing a bed mattress is comfort.. The correct mattress with the right base can mean the difference between sweet dreams or sleep deprivation.. Good quality mattresses help us sleep by giving us better support.. For many of us, the right mattress is essential for a good night's sleep rite??

However, with all the different types of mattresses available, finding the one that is right for us is quite confusing.. We've tried so many mattresses before decided which one to buy.. Here I would like to share with you guys easy steps on how to choose our mattress.. It works for me, hope it works for you too.. hehe..

  • Don't compromise - A good mattress can last up to 12 years or more, so it's a serious investment.. But of coz we should buy the best we can afford rite? So, make a budget and stick to that budget..
  • Don't get swayed by mattress advertising claims - Medical sounding terms like 'orthopaedic' and ' posturepaedic' usually just mean that those mattresses have more springs than most, which gives increased support.. But there's no definitive medical answer to what's best, so don't be lured by mattress adverts claiming 'the ultimate solution to back problems'..
  • Try the mattress before you buy - Try all the mattresses before you buy.. Don't just sit on it, but lie down together with your partner for at least 10 minutes, in positions that you normally sleep in..  Don't let sales assistants influence you, they can't decide whether the mattress is comfortable or not.. Sit on the edge of the mattress, it should be firm, not saggy.. Remember!! Don't shop for beds when you're tired, as all the mattresses will feel great.. haha..

When we first did our survey on the mattress, we were like what?? Ade jugak yg harga smpai RM20k.. Huh~ Giler ape? Mau tak bangun2 dah, best sgt tido.. haha.. Of coz we didn't pay for that price!! After surveying few shops, now I know there are actually so many types of mattress.. Basically there are 6 main mattress to choose from:-
  • Continuous coil mattress - This is the cheapest type of bed mattress, made from a single looped wire.. Bcoz the springs move as one unit, you're more likely to be disturbed by your partner moving around in the night.. 
  • Open coil mattress - One step up from continuous coil.. It is made of single springs fixed together by wire..
  • Pocket spring mattress - In these mattresses, the springs are sewn into individual fabric pockets.. They provide better support for your body, as each coil absorbs the weight individually.. So pocket spring mattresses are good if you sleep on your side, which puts different pressures on your spine.. And if you move around a lot in your sleep, your partner is less likely to feel it..
  • Memory foam mattress - Memory foam mattresses, also known as memory mattresses, are topped with a layer of temperature sensitive viscoelastic material (memory foam).. It is good at relieving pressure on painful joints, but are usually pricer than spring mattresses.. Memory foam is affected by room temperature, so you might find the memory mattress cold and hard when you first go to bed.. As it reacts to body heat, it moulds to your shape, which can make it difficult for you to move or get out of bed.. It also reduces air circulation around your body, which makes the memory mattress feel warmer..
  • Pure foam mattress or latex mattress - Foam or latex mattresses can be good option if you're allergic to house dust mist.. It is a good option but a lil bit expensive.. Not my choice.. haha..
  • Mattress 'toppers' - These add a layer of memory foam or extra padding to your existing bed mattress.. But they can be as expensive as buying a new mattress and won't provide more support if your old mattress is already sagging..
How can we ensure our mattress can last up to 10 years or more? It doesn't matter whether we have a king mattress or single, a memory foam or pocket spring, a good bed mattress can last 10 years or more as long as we look after it.. Here's some tips that I googled on how best to care for our mattress:-
  • Protect the mattress with covers - Use washable mattress cover to protect your mattress from stains.. Usually they will give the mattress protector for free.. 
  • Give the mattress some air - Throw back bedsheets in the morning and leave the bed to air for 10 minutes to allow body moisture to evaporate..
  • Turn your mattress regularly - Turn your mattress over (if advised) and end to end every 3 or 4 months, and every week for the first 3 months, to help upholstery fillings to settle down more evenly..
  • Ban bouncing on the mattress - To keep your mattress at its best, don't sit on the edge of the bed regularly and don;t let the children bounce on it..
  • Unwrap your mattress immediately - Don't leave any plastic wrappings on a new bed mattress - this could lead to rot..
  • Keep your mattress clean - Vacuum the mattress and base from time to time.. 
  • How to remove stains from a mattress - If your mattress is stained, use a cloth with mild detergent and warm or cold water.. Never soak a mattress..
Btw, we just bought our Goodnight Sleeping Partner by Eric Leong.. There are 3 series actually and ours was EL-200.. You can read the details here.. Really2 love it!!
