Points to Consider before Buying a Bamboo Mattresses

When you buy a bamboo mattress, it is better not to rush things and be an impulsive buyer. Instead, take time to contemplate about the things that make up the best bamboo mattress. Take time to do your homework by listing down everything you need in a bamboo mattress. So, here are some things to consider before you buy a bamboo mattress:

  • Size

This is always the first thing to tick on your list whenever you need to buy a mattress. However, some customers still overlook its importance since they are more focused on features. Flash news, size does matter whether you preferred to sleep alone or share your bed. This is because the size of your bamboo mattress should match your height and weight. If you share your bed, it should also match your partner’s to make sure that both of you are comfortable.

Specifically, a Twin, Twin, or Full Size might do depending on your height if you sleep alone. However, it’s better to invest in a bigger size like Queen, King or a California King if you have a partner. The more space you can occupy the better unless you have very limited space in your room.

  • Comfort

The very reason why we change our mattress after a couple of years or sometimes just weeks is its comfort level. After all, who wants to sleep on a mattress that is hard as a rock? Sometimes, other bed-in-a-box mattresses don’t inflate to its full size which leaves lumps in different parts of the mattress. As a result, sleeping on this mattress’ state could give you body pains especially on the back and neck area.

The mattress’ level of comfort must be part of your list to make sure that your bed is cozy. Thus, high-end mattresses usually include a “comfort layer” which is specially designed to provide comfort. In this case, it’s best to look for features such as pressure relief, breathability, and temperature regulation. This way, you won’t have to suffer on sleepless nights due to tossing and turning all night.

  • Support

Settling on a comfortable mattress is not always enough especially if you’re a little heavy. Your bamboo mattress should also provide enough support to avoid leaving permanent dents that marks your spot. To determine the level of support that you need, you must take your weight into consideration. Basically, the heavier you are the more support you need from your mattress.

If you share your bed, you should sum up your total weight to know which matches it. Look for a bed that can provide your required level of support and distributes weight equally. Normally, a thicker mattress provides better support since it contains thicker layers of materials inside.

  • Motion Transfer

This is another point that most customers tend to overlook when buying any kind of mattress. Your every move can send motion waves all over the mattress. Thus, this could disturb the sleep of your partner if you share your bed. Vice versa, the movement of your partner could also wake you up in the middle of the night.

As a solution, look for a mattress that can isolate or at least, reduce the motion transfer on the mattress. This also depends on its construction since premium materials isolate motion better than those cheap and poor materials.

  • Certifications

Not all mattress companies are privileged to receive certifications for offering high-quality products. Thus, a mattress that has certifications is enough to prove its quality. You can also make sure that the mattress doesn’t contain harmful materials that could put your health to risk. In this case, bamboo mattresses come in handy since they contain natural and eco-friendly materials.

Conclusion

Are you ready to get your hands on the best bamboo mattress? Before you buy any type of mattress, make it a habit to do some research first. You don’t really have to be a mattress pro just to get the best bamboo mattress. You just have to be prepared and wiser to avoid poor products that won’t last for at least 5 years. Always list down vital things to consider before buying a mattress and determine which product fits your needs the most.

Though you may be tempted to buy a cheap mattress, we don’t recommend sacrificing quality for its price. If you’d go for discounted mattresses, check its quality first and longevity.
