If you are in the market for a new mattress, you likely have been asked the question: Do I need a new mattress or can I use my current one? While it is true that most people need a new mattress more often than they need an oil change, there are some cases when you may only need to replace your mattress. In fact, there are several reasons why you may only need a new mattress and not a new bed frame, pillows, comforters or other items.
If you suffer from chronic back pain, you should know that most mattresses will not provide adequate support to relieve your aches and pains. In fact, many people actually experience more problems with their backs from using a traditional mattress rather than one of the specialty models that has special orthopedic support features built in. Even if your mattresses were bought at a local store rather than online, you will probably still not get the amount of support that you need. Many people who suffer from back problems have found that purchasing an additional mattress set from a store can solve many of the problems that they experience with their current mattresses.
Another reason that you may only need a new mattress from time to time is if you have moved. If you live in a large home with many rooms, your mattress can easily take up space. In order to save space, you may only need to buy a new base or a base that can be folded and tucked under a bed or into a closet. This way, you do not have to buy a whole new mattress but only need to remove the older one or add a new base. In most cases, the cost of the mattress will be less than the cost of adding a new base. You can also save money by purchasing a plastic base that is very easy to clean and which will last for several years.
If you have pillows on your beds, you may want to replace them with something more durable. Many newer mattresses come with memory foam pillows and these pillows will provide a better night’s sleep for you. The cost of pillows is usually a fraction of what you would pay for a new base or mattress so this option may be worth the extra money.
If you are considering purchasing a new mattress or a base for your existing mattress, it is important to know whether you need a mattress topper. A mattress topper can be purchased separately from the base but they can also be purchased as part of a set. In most cases, a mattress topper is made with the same materials as the base, so you can rest assured that you are buying quality. Of course, if you purchase a new base, the topper may prove to be useless as the mattress will already be covered by the base.
As you can see, there are several factors you should consider when you decide whether or not you need a new mattress. Regardless of whether you need to purchase a new mattress or a base for your existing mattress, you will need to consider the level of comfort. If you suffer from back pain, you should consider purchasing a foam mattress as the base. If you are looking for a cheaper solution, you may want to try out a memory foam mattress or pillows. Whichever type of mattress you decide on, you will be happier with the result when you get a good night’s sleep.
