If you get the right amount of sleep per night, you will end up spending around a third of your life in bed. Your bed is only as good as your mattress. When choosing a mattress, there are several things to consider before committing to one.
You should always first consider your physical condition. If you have a bad back you will need a firm mattress which helps keep the spine aligned. If you have poor blood circulation you will need to get a mattress with flexible support that will contour to the shape of your body. Any kind of physical and/or medical conditions will be your top priorities when it comes to choosing a mattress.
The next thing you should consider when choosing a mattress is if you have any allergies. If you have allergies or sensitivities to lint, cotton, dust, and dust mites, you should not get a regular mattress. A regular mattress can cause you to have an allergic reaction if you are allergic to any of those things. Latex and foam mattresses, or even a water bed, are recommended by some physicians if you have allergies because these types of mattresses do not hold in dust, therefore no dust mites. If you are allergic to rubber, you will not be able to get a latex or foam mattress because those types of mattresses have rubber pieces in them. You can always get a regular mattress and buy a hypoallergenic mattress cover for it if you have allergies.
A third thing you should consider when choosing a mattress are the coil springs. Some mattresses have more springs than other ones do. There are coil springs which are tighter or springier than others ones too. Most mattress stores have samples of the coil springs available for you to view if you want to.
You may want to consider adjustable mattresses. With an adjustable mattress you can control the firmness of the mattress by controlling the air pockets inside of it. These types of mattresses are wonderful for couples who like different firmness in their mattress.
When you are at the mattress store, you should try the different ones out before buying one. The stores have different ones on their display floor for you to try out.
Another thing you should consider is the price of the mattress. Usually the higher the price, the longer the mattress will last.
