Finding the right mattress in matrimony shouldn’t be overlooked. Hopefully, you’ve spent a lot of time deciding on the right partner for you for the rest of your life and picking a mattress to start a life together is an important part of that. Let’s face it, a good marriage starts with a good night’s sleep.
So you’re newlyweds moving into your first home together. One of the first purchases you’ll be making will be your mattress. While the first thing that comes to mind when you think about your bed in your honeymoon phase probably won’t be sleep, it should be because if you both don’t get a good night’s sleep, you’re not going to be good at anything else you do in bed.
While marriage is always accompanied by surprises and sacrifices, one part of your life that shouldn’t be compromised is your sleep cycle. After decades of sleeping in your own bed, finding a mattress that allows both of you to get a solid eight hours of sleep can be tricky but it’s still a necessity. If you’re not sleeping well throughout the night, then chances are the hours you spend awake with each other probably won’t be very pleasant. Here are some guidelines for finding the right mattress for both of you.
Just like you didn’t rush into your decision of marriage (hopefully), you shouldn’t rush into your decision on a mattress. There are some general factors that you should be aware of when choosing a mattress that’s right for you and your significant other.
You have to choose different types of mattresses depending on the physical aspects of the couple. Married couples who are comparatively thin would be able to get to sleep easily on the usual mattress. Nevertheless, these kinds of mattresses won’t be suitable for all those partners in which one or either of the couple are heavily built. In these situations, young couples are encouraged to purchase a king or queen sized mattress preferably. Make sure to ask what the other wants in a mattress. Some people are just more comfortable in a bigger mattress, regardless of their size.
As newlyweds, you’ll each have your own style of sleeping and usually, they won’t be the same. Make sure you account for that when purchasing a mattress. It seems silly, but someone who sleeps in a fetal position will need less room than someone who spreads out and sleeps on their stomach. Sometimes, it’s safer to purchase a larger mattress to account for these changing positions throughout the night.
To get an idea of other questions you should ask each other and the mattress professionals, I found GoodBed.com’s guidance really helpful. If you and your significant other have allergies or any issues with falling asleep, you should look into all natural bedding options. Latex mattress provide superior comfort and prevent the spread of dust and allergens through its natural material. Picking the perfect mattress is a decision that you shouldn’t take lightly; the average mattress lasts for 10-15 years, which for some cases, can be longer than a marriage.
