Good bedding is essential for restful sleep. Since we spend one third of our lives sleeping and that sleeping with us for several years, it is essential that you choose the bed from a large and complex.
The choice of mattress
To choose her bed, the ideal is to combine a box spring, mattress and pillow that suit their needs.
The mattress, which is the complement of mandatory mattress comes in two main families: slatted or box springs.
But we can not associate any mattress or any mattress: for example, do not choose a foam mattress with a box spring.
The foam mattress is exclusively for use with slatted bases.
The possible combinations are:
• a spring mattress with a box spring
• a spring mattress with a slatted base
• a foam mattress with a slatted base.
Note: there are also chests of relaxation that can be raised electrically or manually; more expensive but more comfortable, they are particularly recommended for people who suffer from circulation problems.
The choice of mattress
It is up to everyone to find the mattress that best suits him. The golden rule for choosing a bed is to try before you buy.
To test before purchasing a bed, lie down and turn around on the mattress. If your elbow is sinking, the bedding is not firm enough.
We generally recommend a firm mattress for people who have back problems. But the firmness of the bed depends on the weight of each (some people prefer a stout bed softer and vice versa).
Note: in the case of a couple of different body size, it is possible to opt for a double mattress on the same bed together by a flange or closure.
In short, a good mattress should be neither too hard nor too soft but must respect the alignment of your spine.
Some maintenance tips
While it is important to choose the bed, we must also maintain and renew to enjoy a good sleep.
It is advisable to return the mattress regularly to avoid overwriting always the same areas. Once a year, we must also reverse the head and feet and change the face of the mattress.
Some mattresses have been a face and a winter face: the face was, lighter, lets not get too hot while the winter side retains heat. Therefore the return on each change of season, fall and spring.
Bedding should be changed every 10 years beyond its capacity decreases by about 25% due to natural aging of the materials contained therein.
Generally, it is better to change the box spring and mattress at the same time.
