Planning Mattress Needs

Before going to the mattress store, be upfront about your personal sleeping needs. Everyone has different sleep preferences. Knowing what you need for the most restful sleep before going into the mattress store is the best way to find the perfect mattress to bring home. Many people find asking friends and family about their favorite mattress is a good way to start thinking about different mattress choices. You can also browse through Mattress SuperStore’s Online Store to see all the options that are available to you. These tricks will assure that you’re able to get the best possible mattress at a price you can afford.

 

 

As You’re Mattress Shopping

Be sure to test out all the mattresses that you are interested in physically before purchasing. You can never be sure it is the perfect mattress until you lay on it for yourself. At our stores, your budget stretches further when it comes to quality. We don’t want you to be stuck with a bad mattress for the next decade. Our team wants you to be able to relax on your bed, and not have to worry about a thing.

Mattress Sizes

Choosing the right size mattress will help you sleep more comfortably. When in our store, make sure to check out all the sizes we have available. When you have plenty of room to lay down, you sleep much more peacefully throughout the night. The great thing about our mattresses is that our quality is not sacrificed when choosing a size. Our goal is to make sure that all your sleeping needs are met.

 

 

Knowing Your Sleeping Patterns

The position that you wake up in after a nights sleep indicates where your body feels the most pressure, and requires the most support. Making a note of the position that you fall asleep in, and wake up in is very helpful information to tell our team. Our team members will be sure to help you find the right mattress in order for your body to get a better night’s rest. When it comes to providing extra relief for specific body parts like your back or legs, we have a solution. An adjustable bed can provide extra relief to targeted body parts. Adjustable beds provide the flexibility of changing positions each night. The fact is that each day your activity level changes, as well as the amount of support required by your body each night. The most convenient part of the adjustable beds is the option to angle yourself better when watching tv, reading, or using your laptop just by pressing a button. Make sure to try an adjustable mattress out for yourself in any of our stores.

5 Ways Your Mattress Affects Your Sleep and Health

Most people can agree that a comfortable mattress is important for a good night’s sleep, but how many of us actually have a proper mattress? There’s always an excuse: my mattress isn’t that old, I don’t want to spend a fortune on a mattress, I can just buy a new blanket to make it more comfortable… but the condition of your mattress can really affect your sleep and health.

It’s more than just back pain or a stiff neck, the wrong mattress or an OLD mattress can cause other health problems. Here’s five ways your mattress can affect your every day life.

1. Stress
If the comfort of your mattress is causing you to toss and turn and wake up at night, you could spend your day a little more irritable than normal. You start to worry about whether you can perform well at work because you’re tired. You’re not sleeping well and that’s causing you related stress. A 2009 study showed that new, firmer beds caused a “significant decrease in stress” for 58 healthy men and women. This is because the new mattress offered more support and a better sleep.

2. Allergies
Microscopic creatures, called Dust Mites, live on dead skin cells. These skin cells are shed naturally and can be found in many places, including and most prominently in and on your bed. Millions of Americans are allergic to these dust mites — which causes a stuffy, uncomfortable sleep. To get rid of dust mites, wash your sheets and pillowcases frequently. You can also try using an “allergy proof” slipcover over your mattress. The older your mattress is, the more likely you are to have a build up of dust mites.

3. Overeating
People that don’t get enough sleep or toss and turn during the night are at a higher risk of becoming obese. Drowsiness and lack of energy can often lead to overeating. A poor quality mattress could be to blame for sleep deprivation. Sleep is an important part of weight loss, so having a comfortable mattress is important. We can help you find the perfect mattress. Give us a call today!

4. Immune System
Lack of sleep can also contribute to a weaker immune system. When you don’t sleep enough, you’re more likely to get sick. Low quality sleep can wear down your immune system, causing anything from the common cold to fevers to occur more easily. A supportive and comfortable mattress will give you a good night’s sleep so you don’t have to worry about catching a cold.

5. Brain Training
There are studies that prove using electronics in bed messes with your brain! If you work from home and use your laptop in bed, you are training your brain to think that the bed is where you answer work emails. So even if it’s night time and you’re not even working, you’ll get in bed and you’re brain will expect to do something other than sleep. This causes you to stay up longer and get a bad sleep. Try to limit the time you spend working in your bed!

If you have trouble falling asleep, wake up with unexplained aches and pains or feel overly drowsy during the day, it might be time for a new mattress. Come to our store and lay on our beds to find the perfect one for you. Your health will thank you!

Do I Need To Rotate My Mattress?

You change your sheets; you add new decorative pillows; you buy new furniture; but how often do you rotate your mattress? Is it just an old wive’s tale that you need to rotate your mattress to keep it in the best shape? The answer can be tricky.

The main purpose of rotating a mattress is to keep the mattress from wearing unevenly. When you sleep on one side, you create an impression of your body. Rotating you mattress lets this impression breathe and reform. Caring for your mattress properly will keep it in like-new condition and make it last longer. But now with new technology and advancements, it isn’t always necessary to rotate your mattress depending on what type it is.

You should always follow the manufacturer’s instructions on your mattress or speak with a mattress professional from Mattress Super Store to get the best careinstructions for your mattress, but here are a few quick tips.

Does my mattress need to be rotated?

Your mattress would benefit from being rotated if you have a memory foam, innerspring or hybrid mattress. You don’t need to rotate your mattress if you have a Sleep Number or Tempur-Pedic.

How do I rotate my mattress?

Consider that you want to rotate your mattress so the are where you were laying your head will now be at the foot of the bed. We recommend moving anything near your bed like lamps or nightstands before you try to lift and turn, to avoid breaking anything.

How often should I rotate my mattress?

Because there are so many different type of mattresses, there is no one answer to this. You can rotate your mattress every three months to seasonally to once per year.

To speak with a mattress professional on our team, please give us a call or visit us in our Revere, MA store. We are happy to answer any question you have about rotating your mattress or buying a new one!

 

 

 

What Your Sleep Position Says About You and Your Health

We all have our own go-to position we get into when laying in bed. It’s the position that’s most comfortable for us, and usually the position that we fall asleep most easily in. When you find the perfect mattress, it’s like this sleep position is shaped to it. Having a comfortable mattress allows you to have a full, restful nights sleep and that comfortable sleep position helps get you there.

But is that sleep position safe? Some positions can be good for your health, while others may cause health problems down the road.

sleep mattress

So, what does your sleep position say about you and your health?

The Freefall: laying on your stomach with your head turned to one side, and your arms above your head/around your pillow.

  • Personality: extroverted and brash
  • Health: good for digestion

Fetal Position: Curled on one side with knees bent. (The most popular sleeping position!)

  • Personality: tough on the outside, shy and sensitive at heart
  • Health: sleeping on your left side can cause stress on your liver, stomach and lungs, so opt for the right side

The Log: laying on your side with both arms down by your side.

  • Personality: social and easygoing
  • Health: watch the left side (see above!) but this position keeps the spine straight which can ease back problems

The Solider: laying on your back with arms at your sides.

  • Personality: quiet and reserved
  • Health: sleeping on your back may lead to snoring, difficulty breathing and overall a bad night’s sleep

Whether your sleep position has health benefits or the possibility of health problems, you shouldn’t be overly concerned. Try switching it up and seeing what feels right for you, but if you end up back in your go-to position, it’s okay. Don’t worry about the health side of it unless you get professional advice from a doctor. Enjoy your comfy sleep!

To enhance your sleep and avoid other health problems (like slumping in your mattress or being overtired) you should always make sure you have the best mattress for you. We can help you with that! Check out our inventory of mattresses ranging from firm to soft in all different sizes.

Is a “Split Bed” Right for Me and My Partner?

Finding the perfect mattress is no simple task. And when you do find one you love, you have to ask the question: will your partner also love it? Sleeping has to be comfortable for both of you. If you and your partner have different sleep preference, you should consider a split bed.

What is a split bed?

A split bed is made up of two mattresses with two separate bases set up side by side. They are designed to be two halves of a whole and together come in Queen, King and California King sizes.

Is a split bed right for you? We’ve put together some pros and cons for you and your partner to consider.

Pros:

  • Can accommodate two different sleep preferences
  • Allows partners to pick their unique comfort levels and mattress type
  • Minimizes motion transfer from one side of the bed to the other
  • A power base supports adjustable position (ex: one side can be flat while the other is raised up to support the back/head)

Cons:

  • Finding the right size bed frame, sheets or comforter may require a special order
  • Not attaching the bases can result in the mattresses separating, which forms a space in between

 

Overall, split beds are a unique way to make sure you and your partner get the best sleep possible. They can be a great way to get the best sleep experience – without having to compromise.

Avoid Halloween Nightmares and Get a Restful Sleep

‘Tis the season for spooky tales and scary movies.

Halloween is around the corner which means this month will be filled with horror movie reruns and decorations that will make you jump. Stuff like that is the fuel for nightmares. And if you have nightmares, you’re not getting a restful nights sleep.

Nightmares are more vivid than a bad dream and bring out feelings of fear, terror, distress or anxiety. Nightmares differ from dreams because they usually cause the sleeper to wake up with intense feelings. Children and teens are more likely to have nightmares, but adults can and do have them. Nightmares can be caused by personal experiences, stress, anxiety or the media. This is where Halloween comes in. Whether you watched a horror movie or walked by a house with creepy decorations, your memory stores that information and can cause nightmares.

There is no definite way to prevent nightmares, but we’d like to help you try. Having the perfect mattress can help you have a long, restful sleep. Uncomfortable beds can contribute to creating nightmares, so it’s important that your mattress is in good condition. Contact us if you want to speak about getting a new mattress!

Here are some other ways to try and avoid nightmares.

  1. Run some white noise or calming music: Your subconscious brain picks up on noises while you’re sleeping. A car horn may be turned into something else in your dream. If you play some calming music, it may soothe you and drown out the other noises.
  2. Write positive thoughts before bed: Journaling helps you sort out your feelings and stressors, but you don’t want to be reminded of all the bad things you’re dealing with right before you go to bed. Try writing something positive about your day before you lay down and you’ll leave those good thoughts in your mind.
  3. Avoid scary movies or books at night: It’s Halloween season and it’s pretty impossible to avoid all spooky things, but if you can, avoid seeing it before bedtime. If you can’t help yourself, try reading a magazine or doing something lighter right before you go to bed to break up the scary image in your mind.

If you’re having nightmares this time of year, try practicing these steps to see if it helps. Remember, your mattress plays an important role in your sleep. The more comfortable you are, the more likely you are to enjoy a peaceful, nightmare-free sleep.

Happy Halloween!

What’s the Difference Between Mattresses?

Every person has their own way of sleeping. Some are back sleepers. Some sleep on their side. Others curl up. Each person falls asleep in their most comfortable position, but did you know that a mattress can effect this?

Think about it: If you are in the comfort of your own home, you have chosen the mattress you love, and can easily cuddle up in bed and fall asleep. But if you are on vacation and the bed isn’t so comfortable, you may have trouble finding that perfect sleeping position. This is why your mattress matters.

Now that students are back to school and families are busy, you need to get a good night’s rest! You can go to sleep early — but you need a good mattress to fall asleep comfortably!

It’s more than just soft or firm. There are many types of mattresses to choose from. So what’s the difference between mattresses? Here are some of the most popular types.

 

Innerspring

Innerspring mattresses are made up of a steel coil support system. It is typically the least expensive mattress type and has been around the longest. The shape and designs of the springs, plus the number of them, can vary.  The innerspring is covered by padding which can include foam, fibers and sometimes even smaller coils. The more coils the mattress has, the more points of support for the sleeper.

Pillow-Top

Pillow-Top mattresses have an added layer of stuffed upholstery sewn onto the top of the mattress. The upholstery can be made from fiber and foam materials. It gives sleepers a softer, fluffier feel, while still having the support underneath. It feels similar to laying pillows on top of your bed!

Hybrid

A hybrid mattress is becoming more and more common. It combines a steel coil support system with foam, latex or gel. This kind of mattress gives you the best of both worlds.

Memory Foam/Specialty Foam

memory foam mattress

Memory foam mattresses use a high density foam in their support systems, upholstery or both. This type of foam cradles the shape of the sleeper, allowing a snug, soft sleep. Specialty foam mattresses differ because they use one or more types of foam as the supportsystem. This foam can be manufactured in a variety of shapes and densities to offer customers a mattress that has different comfort, feel and heat dissipation features.

Gel

Gel mattresses use foam that contain gel in the support system, upholstery layers or both. It can offer different comfort, feel and heat dissipation features. This type of mattress offers extreme support and durability.

It’s hard to explain in words how each mattress feels different. When buying a mattress, it is best to do on-hands research. Come to our store and try out some beds today!

How to Pick the Perfect Mattress

Did you know choosing the perfect mattress is the secret to a great sleep? Sleep accounts for 1/3 of our time in daily life and it requires the right equipment to deliver the best results. Of course, you can choose to sleep on a bad mattress but the comfortability of that would be very low.

When choosing a mattress, two main factors are comfort and support. Comfort is a feeling that every individual experience differently. Some people like their bed firmer and some will like their bed softer. Support is a surface that pushes on the body, which allows the spine to relax. You would like a mattress that supports your body without your hips sinking and allows your muscles to relax.

Before you go into a mattress store, it is also important to understand the four main types of mattresses to choose from:

  • Spring – Many of us should be familiar with spring mattresses as they use innerspring coils to provide support. It allows easy movement during sleep.
  • Memory foam – It molds your body’s shape during sleep and creates more heat than a spring mattress
  • Air – It can be adjusted to customize support and comfort
  • Water – It has the ability to control temperature and requires maintenance.

Other factors that are important are sizes, customer reviews, and your budget.

When you finally step into a mattress store, it is important to remember to test out mattresses when you are tired, dress in comfortable clothing like you would be going to bed, and bring your partner (if you have one).

If you own an old mattress, it is also a good idea to consider replacing one if you have used for 7-8 years. Our body changes over time and if you experience pain and stiffness regularly, it is highly recommended to get a new mattress.

A great mattress is literally the foundation on which great sleep is built. With some up-front effort and a willingness to invest, you can help ensure many restful nights.
