Since a mattress is a purchase that a person usually plans to keep for a while, it’s especially important to find just the right fit. One way to make the shopping process easier is for the purchaser to consider what stage of life he or she is in. Here are a few tips.
Children and Teens
Most parents have heard the adage that children grow in their sleep, but now there’s proof! Researchers at Emory University in Atlanta found that levels of human growth hormone (HGH) increase during deep sleep and immediately after sleep. Since sleep is so vital to a young person’s growth, it’s important to have a mattress that is the perfect balance between comfort and support. Innerspring mattresses are durable and supportive, and the weight of a child is typically not enough to cause strain on the springs or to create uncomfortable pressure points. Buis Mattress offers custom youth mattresses to ensure safe and supportive sleep.
Choosing a mattress as an adult is a rite of passage. There are new considerations to take into account, such as back pain, economy, and the preferences of a spouse or partner. On top of that, mattresses today come with a variety of features, including cooling gel, removable covers, individually pocketed coils, and the list goes on. However, the focus should remain on durability, comfort, and support. Innerspring and foam mattresses are traditionally good options, but latex mattresses are quickly gaining popularity among this age group.
As adults enter their golden years, it’s more important than ever to have a mattress that will provide proper lumbar support. Innerspring mattresses are always a good choice, but it should have enough coils as to be supportive, such as the affordable 660-spring National line from Buis Mattress. Many older adults find that foam mattresses distribute weight comfortably; however, they can retain heat and cause sleepers to become uncomfortably warm. Latex mattresses can provide the support of foam mattresses without the heat.
