Finding the Perfect Mattress for Your Guest Bedroom
Buying the perfect mattress for yourself is one thing. But buying a mattress that will please everyone from restless youngsters to your elderly grandma is another.
There are many factors affecting comfort levels during sleep and it’s hard to cater for every single visitor to your home. But it’s not impossible to find a mattress that works for the majority. The key is to opt for something versatile, and something that can adapt to different types of sleepers.
Here’s a guide to choosing the best guest bedroom mattress that will have friends and family coming back again.
The right mattress firmness for guests
If you intend on using your guestroom regularly, it’s important to choose a crowd pleaser. This means it has to tick multiple boxes and provide comfort for all body shapes and weights.
The ongoing debate on firmness may leave you confused as to what to pick, so knowing more about your guests is essential. If elderly family members are frequently over, a firmer mattress may be best as it makes it easier for them to get in and out of bed.
Younger guests on the other hand (including children) may prefer soft to medium mattresses. Generally speaking, medium mattresses are a good compromise for everyone.
For a mattress that delivers on both softness and support, go for something with a pillow top layer like the <link> Aurora 1000 Pillow Top Medium Mattress </link>, priced from £249 for a single. This mattress has excellent weight distribution for all shapes and sizes, and offers support for spinal alignment.
Advanced foam vs. springs vs. latex
When it comes to choosing the right material for your mattress, there’s a lot to think about. There are many things that can affect your choice of material, including the way that people sleep.
Research tells us that over 50% of Brits sleep on their sides or in the foetal position, and this means proper support for their spine is needed. If you’re unsure of what mattress to get, shop for the majority. The best type of mattress for most should support the body’s natural alignment and isn’t too firm.
Foam mattresses can be a good option as they mould to the contours of the body. As are hybrid mattresses, such as the <link> Indulgence 2000 Mattress </link> which combines zero gravity foam for a weightless feel with individual pocket springs.
The added benefit of pocket springs means that couples staying in your guestroom will get the perfect night’s sleep. This is because individual pocket springs help to isolate movement, reducing disturbance for the other person.
Then there’s natural and sustainable latex to consider if you have the budget for it. For a guest bedroom that gets plenty of visitors, it’s a great low-maintenance option due to being mould, mildew and dust mite resistant! Something like the <link> Latex 2000 Medium Mattress </link> will create a healthy, inviting sleep environment for anyone staying over.
Other features to look out for
As well as selecting the right material and firmness for your guest bedroom mattress, you may want to consider other features. Some of these include:
- Temperature regulation – cooling gel mattresses and breathable mattresses are fantastic for spare rooms that face the sun or attic bedrooms that get stuffy in summer. There’s nothing worse than waking up hot and uncomfortable in someone else’s house, so keep your guests cool and sweat-free!
- Organic materials – there’s a growing trend of natural mattresses that are free from toxic chemicals. Not only are they kinder to the environment, but they can reduce pollutants and allergens in your home. This can be a great investment for a spare bedroom that receives lots of visitors, particularly for guests who are allergic to dust mites.
- Orthopaedic design – for elderly guests or family members with back problems, an orthopaedic mattress like the Ortho Mattress can be the ultimate relief for them.
