The lack of a good night’s sleep is one of the major reasons for absent-mindedness, sleepiness, frustration, short-tempered behaviour, less productivity, and many more issues. Sleep deprivation itself can have various causes, one of the most obvious ones being an uncomfortable bed.
The more you think about it, the more logical it gets; an uncomfortable mattress or bed or both can lead to interrupted sleep. This can result in tossing and turning in bed all night, getting bed sores, not being able to get a full, unbroken sleep pattern, etc.
If you are having such sleep issues, then your bed and/or mattress could be at fault. Before you go shopping at the Labor Day bed sale 2018, let us give you a few tips to help you buy the perfect bed-mattress combination.
The first and perhaps the most important factor you need to consider when buying a new bed is the cost, and the same goes for mattresses as well. Beds and mattresses are available from as low as $100 and can cost more than $1000. So, once you have filtered the options that fall within your budget, choosing the perfect bed will be quicker. A student will have a different budget and needs as opposed to a working couple, so think wisely before you spend.
Consider the Size
You don’t buy a bed every day, so make sure you buy the one that is perfect for your height and width. If you sleep alone and don’t need much space, a single bed will do. But if you spread out during your sleep, then you may consider looking at the queen size options. Couples will usually go for king-sized beds.
When buying a bed, also keep in mind the size of the room it is going to be in. If you buy a bed too big, the room will look smaller and congested and there won’t be much space left for your wardrobe, desk, drawers, and other things. A bed too small will not be able to fit your body and you will wake up every morning with bedsores and backaches.
Choose the Right Mattress
You need to pay attention to this one. A perfect bed isn’t really perfect without the right mattress on it. One look at the mattress section of the Holiday bedding sales and you will notice several different types of mattresses. You can get spring, latex, memory foam, or gel foam mattresses. Again, it depends on your preference and budget. Gel foam will cost much, much more than a traditional spring mattress. Pick the one that is easy on your pocket. If money isn’t an issue, go for the more modern memory foam, which adjusts to your body shape when you sleep. For hotter reasons, you might want to consider a gel foam mattress as it contains special gel beads that absorb your body heat and dissipate it so that you sleep cool.
Test It Before You Buy It
You should know how a bed and a mattress feels like before you actually bring it home. So, if you are in a physical store, test the bed and mattress of your choice by actually sleeping on them for a few minutes. Most store representatives will be more than willing to arrange that for you. In case you’re ordering online from a Labor Day bed sale 2018, make sure there is a no-questions-asked return policy so that you can return the bed and mattress if you don’t like one or both of them. Hope you make the right choice. Happy sleeping!
