When selecting a bed, it is important to consider the mattress you will be using as well. The bed frame is the foundation for a comfortable night’s sleep, but the mattress is the part of the bed you
sleep on every night.
First, it is important to determine the size of the mattress that you want to own. The size will depend on your personal preference as well as the space you have available in your home. If you have a lot of space, you will be able to select whichever size mattress you would like. However, if you have limited space, it will be important to measure the room and make sure you choose a bed and mattress that fits comfortably within that space. Some of the most common mattress size options are as follows:
- Twin Sized Mattress
- Full Mattress
- Queen Sized Mattress
- King Sized Mattress
- California King Mattress
The twin size mattress is generally the smallest standard size mattress available, while the California King is the largest.
In addition to the mattress size, it is important to consider what type of mattress you find the most comfortable. There are a wide variety of mattresses on the market, and some of the most popular types are:
- Memory Foam – These mattresses cradle you as you sleep by conforming to your specific body shape. Some couples prefer memory foam mattresses if one of them tosses and turns in the night, as these mattresses do not respond to movement the way a standard mattress would.
- Waterbed – Waterbeds are filled with liquid contained inside the mattress.
- Pillow Top – Pillow top beds have soft, downy layers placed on top of the standard mattress base.
There are many other types of mattresses on the market, so be sure to do some research and test out the different types before making your selection.
