Health and happiness, two great reasons for making sure you get a good night’s sleep. If you ever find yourself sinking into the middle of your bed at night or you’re regularly waking from sleepless nights (however many sheep you’ve counted) to a morning of aches, then maybe now is the time to consider a new mattress.
The good news is that here at Groupon we have some of the best deals you’ll find online for your new mattress. It all starts with knowing what type of mattress you need, and we’ve broken down the main mattress types you should know about, so that you can be better informed when making your choice.
A relative newcomer in the world of mattresses, the fact that this special responsive foam moulds to your body shape, means that many people are looking to get their hands (and back) on a memory foam mattress.
These mattresses work in a unique manner. If you think of lying down in bed, you usually imagine the mattress is using springs to support your weight. Memory foam works using almost the opposite approach. It relies on the position and heat of your body to mould around your shape. And when you move while sleeping, the mattress also changes to match your position.
Many memory foam mattresses contain a mixture of standard soft foam and high density memory foam. This blend gives you the benefit of support and comfort.
Not everyone is a fan of the fact that you slightly sink in to a memory foam mattresses, but it’s ideal for those who need back support, as the mattress helps to maintain posture and align your spine, particularly when sleeping on your side. This is also a great choice of mattress if you or your partner tend to toss and turn a lot during sleep.
A good night’s sleep can be hard to achieve if you have issues with back pain or aches in your joints. If you never feel fully comfortable when lying down in bed, you might want to consider an orthopaedic mattress for your bedroom.
These mattresses are known for being firmer when you’re lying down and that makes them great for back and hip support. It’s also a great type of mattress to use if you sleep on your stomach most nights and sometimes wake up with a stiff neck.
This is the traditional mattress type and consists of one long piece of metal wire coiled into numerous springs with an extra border wire to maintain shape. These mattresses are lower priced, great value and, being slightly lighter than pocket sprung mattresses, are easier to turn. They may not have the support level of the more luxurious pocket sprung mattresses, but we’re confident you’ll find them great to sleep on and they’re ideal for guest bedrooms
An update on the classic coil mattress, pocket spring mattresses are designed to provide great back support evenly across the bed and are perfect for people who move a lot during sleep.
A traditional mattress has coiled springs wired together. This means that when you sit on a bed, all the surrounding springs will compress too when they might not need to. Pocket springs are individually coiled small springs in their own pocket of fabric, allowing for a more precise body impression no matter which way you’re lying. Each spring then moves individually, supporting your body frame as it moves on the bed. Some of the finest crafted mattresses are pocket sprung and are often a good route to a great night’s sleep.
