The Fireside Furniture guide to choosing a mattress will help you navigate the selection process. Heading into 2024, make getting better sleep your New Year’s resolution.
When To Replace Your Mattress
First, how do you know it’s time to replace your mattress? While mattresses have no set expiration date, a good mattress typically lasts for 8 to 10 years. To get a better idea of when it’s time to get a new mattress, look for these warning signs:
- Noticeable lumps, sagging, or damage
- Noisier than usual (for innerspring mattresses)
- Regularly wake up with muscle or joint stiffness
- Sleep is better on other mattresses (e.g., at hotels)
- Sleep overall negatively affected
Types of Mattresses
Mattresses come in many different types, but every kind has its own unique qualities. Picking the right one requires you to weigh factors like cost, noise, bounce, motion transfer, temperature regulation, etc. At Fireside Furniture, we carry a variety of mattresses, and we can help you choose carefully between innerspring, memory foam, and cool gel mattresses.
The most traditional type of mattress, innerspring mattresses are made of a layer of steel coils surrounded by layers of comfort material, such as latex or natural fibers. This gives these mattresses more bounce and makes them firmer. If you are a back or stomach sleeper who needs more support, this kind of mattress would be a good option for you.
Memory foam mattresses are made with layers of foam, with softer foam at the top for comfort and firmer foam at the bottom for durability and support. These mattresses confrom to your body, placing less stress on your shoulders and hips and providing pressure relief. Side sleepers and those who suffer from joint pain and discomfort will find memory foam ideal. Additionally, they help with motion isolation so that you won’t feel your partner moving beside you.
An issue with memory foam mattresses is that they trap heat. However, cool gel mattresses are made of memory foam infused with cooling gel that difuses heat, regulating your temperature throughout the night. Plus, like memory foam mattresses, cool gel mattresses provide body-conforming support. Gel mattresses are best for hot sleepers who want the benefits of memory foam, as well as for side sleepers and those with joint pain.
