Choosing The Perfect Bed
When choosing the right bed there are so many different things you need to consider, including the mattress. We spoke to a bed shop in Wigan to learn more about making the right decision.
When it comes to the mattress it’s all about surface area and pressure. The more of your body that is in contact with mattress, means the less pressure on your hips and shoulders. If you choose the right mattress for you then no matter what position you sleep in, you will be comfortable. A good mattress can provide comfort and support, and therefore help to relieve back pain. You don’t want to bed just because it says it’s good for your back, everyone has different requirements for a bed. Orthopaedic tends to mean extra firm, nothing medical, when it comes to mattresses. You will want to find a bed which is supportive rather than firm, often a medium firm bed with cushioning is best. Most mattresses need to be turned regularly to avoid wear and tear, if this is too difficult for you, then you may want to get a mattress which won’t need turning as often.
We spend almost a third of our lives sleeping, therefore it makes sense to spend time and money a mattress you know that’s best for you. Many people think you need to get a firm orthopaedic mattress but if it’s too firm this can result in hyperlordosis. Hyperlordosis is when the spine in your lower back has excessive curvature. You want to look for a mattress which is soft enough to sink into but firm enough to support you. Also, sleeping on your side tends to avoid long-term back problems. When it comes to pillows, if you sleep on your side then you will want a firmer pillow, if you sleep on your front you will want a very flat pillow and if you sleep on your back you will want a softer one; to keep your neck in line with your spine.
To find the right bed you will want to start looking around local bed places such as The Bedroom Place. Then you will want to try lying down on some of their beds and thinking about if it’s big enough and about the size of the room. You need to make sure it looks good, fells good and works with the mattress. The Bedroom Place offer many different types of beds such as fabric, metal, modern and divan beds as well as many others; also they sell bunk beds and mattresses. All of these are sourced from the finest manufacturers.
