Find the right mattress

    While the perfect mattress won’t keep bad dreams away, it will help ward off nightmarish back problems. After all, nothing’s quite as important for ensuring a good night’s sleep as having the right mattress. What does “right” mean? Something entirely different to everybody. To make sure that you don’t get out of the wrong side of bed in the morning, we’ve compiled a list of things you should keep in mind when picking out your new mattress.

    How do you sleep?

    Firmness is the biggest factor when it comes to choosing a mattress. The right level of firmness will relieve back strain and can prevent backaches. Heavier individuals need a slightly firmer mattress, otherwise they sink down too far. Conversely, soft mattresses are better suited to lighter individuals. Back sleepers need a mattress that supports their neck and spine, while side sleepers need one that cradles their spines in a neutral, restful position. Stomach sleepers, on the other hand, sleep most soundly on mattresses with all-round support. We strongly advise that people with back problems or back pain try laying on several different kinds of mattresses.

    Which mattress material?

    Deciding which mattress is right for you depends mainly on which materials it’s made of. That’s not the only factor, though: temperature, your sleeping position, your physical build and your sleep behaviour also determine which mattress will have you sleeping most soundly. Compare the different types of mattresses and find out which one is the best match for you. We’d be happy to advise you in an IKEA store and you’re also more than welcome to come try out a few for yourself.
