Only a well-sleep person can live a full life. We do not know who you are by profession, what you like and what your daily routine is, but we know for sure that everyone needs a good mattress.

Why a comfortable mattress is so important

Sleep is more important than food. As everyone knows: you can live without food and water for 2 weeks, without sleep a person can last up to 11 days. While you sleep, the brain turns on the “cleaning” mode: it sorts out the information accumulated during the day and removes harmful substances.

During quality sleep, the brain reboots so that during the day you feel alert and full of energy. It is important to facilitate the task of the body with the help of a comfortable bed.

The most important conditions for a comfortable sleep:

  • A sleeping place where the body completely relaxes is not a soft or hard surface.
  • The absence of excess light, which interferes with the production of the sleep hormone.
  • Temperature 16-22 ℃ and humidity 40-60% - this will allow you to breathe easily, but not freeze at night.
  • Freshness and cleanliness, no foreign smells.
  • Skin-friendly bedding and mattress fabrics.
When choosing a mattress in height, you need to pay attention to the weight of the one who will sleep on it:

  • The more weight, the more height you need. If the mattress is made of good materials, 20 cm is enough.
  • For cots, a mattress 10 cm high is suitable.
  • Too high a mattress, 35–50 cm, can add instability. It is less comfortable to sleep on. Manufacturers refer to them as a premium class, and buyers are led to this trick.

Spring mattresses

With a dependent spring block "Bonnel":

At the core - spiral springs rigidly connected to each other.
Of the benefits - good ventilation and low price.
Of the minuses - deformation of the springs after several years of use, the effect of a wave and a hammock, noise when moving.
We consider these mattresses insanely outdated. Sleeping on them every day is inconvenient, as they do not keep their back in the correct position, sag and quickly deform.
With an independent spring block:

Individual spring blocks are placed in fabric covers, providing a good orthopedic effect - the mattress adapts to the contours of the body and maintains the natural position of the spine better than a mattress with dependent springs.
The more springs per bed, the better the support. You should not choose mattresses that have less than 500 springs per bed: they will quickly push through, and your back will get tired. The optimal amount for healthy support is 2,000 springs per person.

The cost depends on the number of springs per berth - the more there are, the higher the price.

The springs can make noise when moving and loading the mattress.
Most often, mattresses with an independent spring block contain additional layers of foamed polyurethane, latex, and coconut fiber. Often synthetic materials are hypoallergenic and are cheaper than natural ones. The layer is located above or below, or on both sides. When buying, you should pay attention to the number of springs - the more there are, the more comfortable it is to sleep - and the material of the top layer, since the quality of sleep also depends on this.

Springless mattresses

They consist of one or more blocks of different hardness made of natural latex, coconut coir or polyurethane foam.
The role of the springs is performed by the materials themselves - an elastic and dense foam structure is suitable for supporting the spine and evenly distributing the load.
They are silent and will not wake you up if your partner gets up at night for some water.

The most convenient option for a springless mattress is one that consists of materials of varying degrees of hardness. It is best to have a soft layer on top: it will allow you to sleep more comfortably, taking the anatomical shape of the body. This layer will sink your shoulders and pelvis a little. There should be a hard layer underneath that will provide support and prevent it from sinking completely into the mattress.

Choose a springless mattress not only for stiffness, but also for the degree of density of the material. The higher the density, the longer the mattress will last. A person with any weight can sleep on it, since the foam acts as millions of microsprings that support the body.
