6 Ways to Make a Mattress More Comfortable

There are few things more important than a good night’s sleep, in terms of one’s health and well-being. But for many people, sleep is hard to come by. Whether it’s stress, noise, or discomfort keeping you awake, it’s a good idea to get on top of it and start investing in whatever you need to make sure you are sleeping well throughout the night.

If it’s your sleep space – your mattress and bed – that’s causing your sleepless nights, there are plenty of things you can do to make improve your chances of sleeping asleep faster and staying asleep longer. Here are some suggestions!

Invest in a mattress topper

Sometimes all it takes is a little boost to your mattress in the form of a mattress topper. These things can truly be a life saver! The nice thing is that they come in a range of densities and materials, so that you will definitely be able to find one that suits your needs.

Invest in a high-quality mattress

We are passionate about mattresses and know that they can truly make the difference between a good sleep and a sleepless night. This is exactly why we make sure that the mattresses in cabinet beds are second to none – there is no substituting for quality. If you are suffering from tossing and turning all night, it’s a good idea to examine your mattress and perhaps invest in a new one. 

The right linens

Sometimes something as simple as the right sheets and blankets makes all the difference. If you sleep hot at night, having sheets that help regulate body temperature is key. Conversely, if you have a hard time warming up, it’s a good idea to layer up those blankets and adjust as the night goes on. But it’s smart to find the sweet spot, especially as the seasons change. The last thing you want is to be waking up multiple times throughout the night.

Consider a body pillow

These things are amazing, especially for people who suffer from chronic pain in their bones and joints. A body pillow can be added to a person’s sleep set up to enhance their comfort. It also adds some much needed softening and support for sore hips, shoulders, the back, and any other body part that needs a little extra love.

Up your bed frame game

If you’ve invested in a quality mattress, then it better be sitting on a great bed frame. One that provides the right kind of support. A cabinet bed, for example, has a platform style bed frame, creating a solid base for the mattress to sit on. This means there is no sagging or distortion to the mattress, and it means that the mattress will stay in good condition for a long time to come. Other mattresses might require a box spring, or other kinds of support… either way, it’s a good idea to make sure your mattress is properly supported.

Cooling mattress topper

Ok, we kind of already covered this, but wanted to return to the mattress topper. There are so many available on the market that surely you’ll be able to find one that’s perfect for you. For example, there exists an egg crate foam mattress topper that is infused with lavender. The foam pattern cradles your body and allows for extra airflow for those who are hot sleepers. Plus foam pads eliminates hard spots and can lengthen the life of a mattress.

We all have heard that somewhat startling fact that we spend a third of our lives on our mattress. So, it’s definitely worth investing in. A mattress that is good for the body and will help you sleep at night, like the ones found in cabinet beds, should be made of high quality, durable materials that provide both comfort and support. We recommend that if you are having sleepless nights or are waking up unrested or with aches and pains that you invest in yourself by investing in your mattress.
