Getting More From Your Mattress – A Buyer’s Guide

There are few things more important than a good night’s sleep. It impacts every facet of our life, and gives us what we need to create, engage and enjoy life. If it’s time to upgrade your mattress, then quality restoration is only around the corner. The trouble is selecting the right mattress for the job so you can catch those quality Z’s. Here’s what you need to consider when finding the right mattress for you.

Do your research

Researching products is something we know we should do, but time doesn’t always permit. But when it comes to your mattress? You want to do thorough research because you will be spending about a third of your life on it. Start with about five types including the Nicklor mattress, and then compare them on the following assessments to hone in on the right one.

Think about your body

What works for your friend, may not be the best choice for you. Mattresses have come a long way in offering support for many body types, but you should always measure up the mattress against your body and the person you may be sharing with. Think about your history of mattresses and what your biggest gripes may be. Chances are they were not the right fit for your body, so make sure you don’t take advice from random sources but go off your own preferences.

The feel

Nothing beats lying back on your bed after a long day. Nothing. You want your mattress to be thick and comfortable, complete with bacteria-resistant bamboo and quilted foam. The foam goes a long way in supporting your sleep, and a great mattress will allow the other person to move during the night without the sleeper feeling their movement. Soft or firm, make sure it feels exactly like it could lull you to sleep at any moment. If you are looking to buy a mattress online, which many do, first visit their store or showroom to lay on the mattress and give it the final seal of approval.

Match the base

The other consideration is your base. Are you also replacing your base, or keeping your existing one? This will determine the size you choose and how that mattress will work in your bedroom. Before you research or hit the stores, have all the measurements of your base ready so that you know the parameters that you are working with.

Made locally

We all try and buy locally for our groceries and goods, but what’s the benefit of buying a local made mattress? An australian-made mattress will give you the luxury of instant shipping, and it makes the warranty and maintenance process that much easier. It also supports Australian businesses and uses Australian materials in the process.


Having a generous warranty is important, as it gives you peace of mind and shows that the provider are confident in their product. A warranty between seven and twelve years is about benchmark, and it should cover womanship faults and excessive body imprints of about 30mm or more. Be sure to ask the question around warranty before you purchase.

The price

Price shouldn’t govern all of our decisions, but it is a key factor for many of us. Fortunately you can find a quality mattress without breaking the bank. The disparity in price between mattresses really is large, and most of the time you are buying the retailer name. The truth? Most of the highest rating mattresses come from independent providers like Nicklor, as opposed to those larger department stores who just happen to sell mattresses. Weight up the prices against the offering, and see what falls within your budget.

So, it turns out there is more to sleep than just closing your eyes. It is critical to have a great chemistry with your mattress, so you can keep up with your busy lifestyle and maintain your health through balanced rest. Take these considerations into account before you bring your new mattress home.
