If you are going to buy a mattress, in this case, a retro or classic mattress, there are things you need to consider so you can stay comfortable. You can get a good night sleep without sacrificing your style.
Here are some tips that you can look into before getting a new mattress for your bedroom because replacing your mattress can be a huge undertaking due to hundreds of makes and models to choose from in the market. Although the biggest part of what makes a mattress good is personal because it can be luxurious and expensive, but it can be a night after night disaster full of aches and pains on your back.
You should start by thinking about support. This has everything to do with the mattress’ core which will provide all the support you will ever need. There are lots of different kinds of mattresses out there, but there are four common types: air filled, latex, foam, and inner spring.
Since you are looking into the retro types, then you will probably end up with an innerspring mattress that has a traditional bouncy feel to it. However, you can choose how springy your mattress will be. Because the metal coils inside are measured between 12 being the firmest and the thickest, up to 18 which is the thinnest and the least firm. This is where your weight comes into play because heavier people tend to prefer the thicker gauges for back support so that they will not sink in the bed.
Interconnected coils are more durable but, on the other hand, coils that are pocketed inside the mattress can reduce the rippling effect when someone on the other side of the mattress shift.
Today, modern manufacturers of inner spring mattresses are placing either a fiber fill or foam on the outside layer of the mattress that they cover with quilted tickling. However, if you want a superbly plush feel when you are lying on your mattress then do not hesitate in purchasing a thick looking pillow top for your bed. But be warned, you will see a very puffy layer on the mattress while you are in the store. In a few months though, it might deflate or compress and will not go back to its former glory when you purchased it.
It is best to choose a top quality, well quilted mattress instead and cover it with an interchangeable mattress pad or even a quality feather bed.
If you like to customize but still want to stick with being retro, then you can consider getting an air-filled mattress for your room. Most come with a remote that will let you know how much air you have inside. Some air mattresses even have a side by side chamber where you can customize both sides of the mattress separately depending on your partner’s preference. Even with this technology, the look of this retro bed stays the same because it has similar quilted fiber or foam on top just like what you will see on inner spring mattresses.
