MATTRESS – THE MOST IMPORTANT FURNITURE?

Some would say that the mattress is one of the most important piece of furniture in your home. As we sleep on it every day, it is highly important to find a mattress that will provide you with a good night’s rest, allowing you to feel refreshed as you awaken the next morning to go to work or study. For people with back injuries, it is also important to find a mattress that does not cause them back pain.

Mattress have developed a long way from their early days of simply being materials like leaves or cotton wrapped with animal skins! Modern Mattresses now usually contain coiled springs instead, quite an improvement from the olden days! However, even more recent is the trend of “foam mattress”, where rather than springs.

These “foam” mattresses are not as rigid as spring mattress, and some people enjoy the way that they shape themselves around your body to provide maximum comfort when compared to springs.

However, this is not to say the classic spring mattress is outdated. Indeed, these springs are important because they provide support to the back. This is vastly more important for those with back injuries who will require such beds instead. Generally speaking, a firmer mattress is much better for this purpose, but this is highly dependent on the user.

Finally, there is the foundation of a mattress to consider. Foundations can be made out of two materials, wood and metal. Wood is generally considered much less popular ironically because it feels much harder than steel. In addition, only high quality wood can be used to create beds, lest it breaks apart while you’re sleeping on it! Despite it being cheaper, many decide to go for a metal foundation for their bed instead.
