When you go out to buy new furniture, a lot of the time the style of the item you are purchasing is a big factor. When it comes to beds, you may prefer the look of a sleigh bed or perhaps a 4 poster bed. You will pick the most stylish bed that you like for your budget and then when it comes to picking a mattress, it can be an afterthought. You will spend as little as you possibly can on our mattress as you’ve already blown most of your budget on your bed. This is human nature, wanting the best-looking things but really, more thought and indeed budget, should be given to your mattress. This is somewhere you are going to spend 1/3 of your time and a bed’s comfort is ultimately dependant on your mattress, not the beautiful 4 poster frame you have picked out.
By comparing various factors you’d expect from a cheap mattress versus what you would expect from a premium quality mattress, hopefully, you will consider the benefits to be had from picking up a quality mattress to relax on.
- Comfort: If you’ve ever had to spend a night on a poor quality mattress, you probably already know the difference in comfort between a cheap mattress and a quality branded mattress. The way they are constructed and the quality of the materials used alone will affect the comfort level. The greater the density of the springs and the more gentle the covering at the top of the mattress the sounder and comfier you will sleep at night
- Support: With a more expensive mattress, you will find the greater spring density will provide you with a much greater full-body support. With a cheap mattress, even with regular maintenance such as flipping and application of a mattress protector, a cheap mattress will still suffer from dipping in the mattress. Even cheaper mattress will never provide the support that you need, even when they are brand new. The support is one of the most important functions of a mattress and with poor support, back problems can emerge. A good quality mattress, such as a pocket sprung mattress can provide superior support from the get-go and for years to come
- Everyone has heard the term “you get what you pay for” and it is a popular saying for a reason, it’s 100% true. Purchasing a mattress is no different and if you spend as little as possible, you will get a mattress that won’t last very long. When you purchase a good quality mattress, you will be looking forward to keeping it for years as they are made from higher-grade materials and are built for last. A brand that has built itself up has nothing to gain by selling poor quality products to its customers so 9 times out of 10 a brand is the way to go if you are looking for good quality.
As you can see, with a quality mattress, you could get better comfort and support from day one and even save money in the long run as you will not need to replace a quality mattress anywhere near as often as a cheap mattress, particularly with proper mattress maintenance.
