1. Discover the world of single mattresses

Single mattress (90cm x 190cm): standard single mattress size for teenagers or single adults. It provides enough space for an individual without taking up too much bedroom space.

When we talk about single mattresses, it's important to choose the right material. Memory foam mattresses are favoured by many for their excellent support and comfort. It adjusts to your body temperature and weight to provide you with a personalised sleeping experience. Hybrid mattresses combine the benefits of memory foam and springs to provide a sleep environment that is both supportive and comfortable.

For hot nights, a gel memory foam mattress is an ideal choice. The gel particles help dissipate heat and keep the mattress cool, helping you sleep more comfortably throughout the night. Additionally, for those looking for convenience, mattress in a box offers a simple solution, they are easy to transport and easy to install, making them ideal for a fast-paced lifestyle.

Regardless of your sleeping position, choosing the right mattress is crucial. Firm mattresses are often suitable for back and stomach sleepers as they provide extra spinal support, while side sleepers may prefer a soft or medium-firm mattress to relieve pressure points.

Next, let's dive into how to choose the right type of mattress for your sleep position.

2. Choosing a mattress based on sleep position

Understanding your sleep position is crucial to choosing the best mattress. Different sleeping positions require different mattresses, which directly affects the quality of your sleep and your health.

  • Back sleepers: Back sleepers need a mattress that provides enough support but is not too firm to maintain the spine's natural curve. A firm or hybrid mattress is often the best choice, providing good support and reducing the likelihood of back pain.
  • Side sleepers: When you sleep on your side, the pressure on your body is concentrated in your shoulders and hips. As a result, side sleepers are more likely to benefit from a softer mattress, such as a memory foam mattress or gel memory foam mattress, which conforms well to the body's curves, relieving pressure points and avoiding pain and discomfort.
  • Tummy sleepers: Tummy sleepers need a mattress that provides even support and prevents the lower back from sinking. A firm mattress is a good choice because it keeps the spine aligned and avoids waking up with back pain in the morning.

Having learnt how to choose a mattress based on your sleeping position, we'll then look at how to maintain and extend the life of your mattress to ensure you get value for money from your investment.

Read on to learn how to care for your single mattress and keep it with you for longer.

3. How to care for your single mattress

To ensure that your single mattress provides optimum support and comfort, and extends its lifespan, proper care and maintenance are essential. Here are some basic tips for caring for your mattress:

  • Rotate your mattress regularly: rotating your mattress 180 degrees every three to six months can help to evenly distribute signs of use and pressure, preventing excessive sinking or wear and tear on one part.
  • Use a mattress protector: A good mattress protector not only prevents liquids, stains and dust mites from invading the inside of your mattress, but it also extends the life of your mattress and keeps it hygienic and clean.
  • Keep your mattress dry: Avoid exposing your mattress to humidity as moisture may cause mould and bacteria to grow inside. If the mattress is accidentally wet, absorb it immediately with a dry towel and dry it thoroughly in a well-ventilated environment.
  • Cleaning the mattress: Regularly using a hoover to remove dust and dead skin cells from the surface of the mattress will prevent dust mites from building up. For stains, gently wipe with a mild detergent, but make sure the mattress is completely dry before use.

With these simple maintenance and care measures, your single mattress will be able to provide you with comfort and support for longer.

Now that you understand how to choose the right single mattress for you, and how to maintain and care for your mattress, it's time to take action and choose the perfect mattress for you.
