It is essential to get a good night’s sleep to stay healthy and happy throughout the day. However, without proper research before purchasing a mattress may lead to sleepless nights and achy mornings, if you aren’t sleeping on a good quality mattress. Mattresses can cost you a lot of money, so make sure you choose the mattress which is worth the investment before you buy.
Here’s the ultimate guide to choosing the best mattress for you!
When to replace your mattress
Mattresses can last five to 10 years as a general rule. However, you should replace your mattress based on these warning signs:
- Are you waking up sore?
- Is your mattress feeling lumpy?
- Do you sleep better on other mattresses, like at a hotel?
Choosing the mattress’s size
Choosing the size that works for you is all about your personal preferences. There are six common mattress sizes in Indonesia:
- Single (90×200 cm)
- Single XL (100×200 cm)
- Double (120×200 cm)
- Queen (160×200 cm)
- King (180×200 cm)
- Super King (200×200 cm)
Single – Single XL
The single mattress is the basic starter that you usually use when replacing a toddler size bed. Since this bed is quite narrow, this bed is the best option for those who sleep alone and have a small bedroom. However, if you feel that a single bed is too narrow for you, you might consider a double bed.
At least two people can comfortably fit on a double mattress. However, a double bed is recommended for one person who wants to sleep more freely. This size is best for adolescents and young adults with body size above the average.
Queen mattress is the most popular size for couples. This size is very recommended for those who have limited bedroom space.
However, if you and your partner’s sleeping position often change uncontrollably at night, the queen mattress isn’t the right one for you.
King – Super King
These mattresses are the widest and most comfortable size compared to the others. Besides being able to accommodate two adults freely, these sizes allow parents to sleep together with their children.
For the super king-sized mattress, it usually can hold three adults or two adults and one child.
Before you buy
When measuring the size of your mattress you need, be sure to take into account any extra space your headboard and bed frame will take on the floor. If you only go by mattress size, you’ll likely end up with a bed frame that’s too large for your bedroom.
If you live in a smaller space and apartment building, consider buying a mattress that comes in a box. So it’s easier for you to move it.
Laying down in the showroom is an old way to buy a mattress. An online mattress like Mimpi is a great option since you can shop from home. The mattress will arrive in a box at your doorstep within a few days and include FREE shipping and a 100% money-back guarantee. So, there’s a minimal risk!
