Will you spend one third of your life sleeping? If so, then you want to take extra care when purchasing a mattress. Don’t just order one by mail–take time to test drive each mattress you are considering.
To further enhance your potential to get the absolute best bed for your home or apartment, you can tap into the availability of online sellers of beds. You no longer need to feel limited to those sellers that are only located in your geographic area. Instead, you can acquire the bed you want from the seller you want simply by ordering online.
Always make sure that you use a firm mattress to sleep on. To avoid aggravating any back pain you may already have, never sleep on your stomach; the spine is forced into an exaggerated curve when you sleep this way. In case you can’t sleep lying on your back, lie on one side instead with the knees tucked up, as in a fetal position.
Futon covers are normally ordered with a depth of 2 inches less than the thickness of the classic dream mattress reviews. This is because when the futon cushion is flat, a cover is at it’s tightest. Unless the futon pad is only used for a bed, and it doesn’t fold like it would in a futon frame. If your cover is for bed use only, you should order a cover that is the same thickness as the mattress. If your cover is for a folding futon sofa, that makes a bed, when it’s folded into a sofa position, the bend creates slack in the cover. So, by ordering covers a little on the tight side, they will fit best, and look perfect, when your futon is in the sofa position.
Other orthopedic foam mattresses are made from latex foam. These are generally less expensive than memory foam and do not provide as much support, but it may work for those who don’t need something as luxurious as memory foam.
Inflatable mattresses can either by self-inflating or needs to be pumped. This type of camping mattress is much more comfortable that foam pads but even the lightest inflatable mattress can weigh at least one pound. The biggest disadvantage of this type of pad is that there’s a risk of it being punctured so it’s important to keep a repair kit handy.
If you are extremely particular about the fit of your cover, or you have any other questions, by all means, seek out the advice of a futon specialty shop.
