How to choose a king size mattress in 3 simple steps

Written by The Foam Factory

Most people want a king size mattress that will give them a comfortable nights sleep with little or no interruptions. But choosing your mattress can be confusing with sale personnel and marketing gimmicks that leave you confused. Here are 3 simple steps to buying the best mattress you will ever own.

Sleep quality – When you sleep in one position, your blood vessels press down on your skin and this slows your blood flow. After some time your skin receptors will tell your brain to roll over and this process causes interrupted sleep. To avoid this, choose a mattress that isn’t too hard (leading to more pressure) or too soft (leading to neck or back pain). Therefore it best to choose a memory foam mattress. These mattresses are designed to mold and contour to your shape.

Look at the foam’s quality – You want a good quality memory foam mattress that will last you at least 10 years. Most good quality branded mattress foam come with a 5-10 year warranty. The thicker the memory foam layer the more your mattress will cost. Look for a thickness of over 3 inches for the best sleep.

Height – If you have a spring bed then you will not need a very high mattress, as the springs will give you support. However, most modern beds have wood panels and this means that the mattress alone has to provide all of the support. Therefore look for a mattress over 8 inches high.
