The right mattress can be the difference between an average night’s sleep and a great night’s sleep. But how do you know which one to choose?

Choosing the right mattress


With literally hundreds of mattresses on the market, it can be hard to know which one is going to suit your needs. And while testing it in a show room can give you some kind of idea, it’s not enough to know if it’s the best choice for you.

So what do you need to look for?

What kind of sleeper are you?

The first thing you need to consider is what type of sleeper you are, as this will determine how firm your mattress should be.

If you sleep on your stomach, choose a firm mattress to help keep your spine aligned. A medium support mattress is best if you sleep on your back as it will help support your spine, back and neck. For side sleepers, a softer mattress will support and contour your body’s natural curves.

For plus-size customers, consider choosing a bariatric mattress. These are specially made mattresses that support heavier customers. At BedGuard, we have mattresses to support weights of up to 150kg and 300kg.

What size mattress?

Your sleeping needs will also determine what size mattress you require. Mattresses range from singles, right through to King Size.

Consider the quality of the mattress

If you’re investing time and money into choosing the right mattress, you want to make sure that it’s made from quality materials and manufactured to the highest standards. Different mattress styles include coil, memory foam, latex foam, pocket spring and hybrid (which combine elements of memory foam and spring mattresses).

Special features and finishes

Another aspect to consider is whether you want special finishes on your mattress. At BedGuard, all of our mattresses feature a waterproof treatment which is bonded to the mattress. This superior protection repels liquid, odour, stains and bedbugs. and with nothing to remove, there’s no need for mattress protectors. No washing and no maintenance. Simply blot any mess up with a paper towel. Stains and odours are removed, leaving your mattress fresh, clean and dry.

Because liquids can’t penetrate our mattresses, they are also resistant to soiling and stains from liquids and solids. And if that’s not enough, they are also flame retardant and resist bedbugs.

When it comes to investing in a mattress, it’s worth doing your homework and considering all your needs. However, don’t be sold on price alone. Money saved is cold comfort when you’re tossing and turning all night, or wake up with a sore back from sleeping on an inferior mattress.

At BedGuard we are committed to providing you with the highest quality mattress to suit your personal needs. We have mattresses to suit all members of the family, including your little ones. Come in store to chat to our friendly staff, or browse online today.
