The art of sleeping: Discover the magic of the perfect mattress!

Sleep allows the body and mind to recharge and rejuvenate. It can mean the difference between good and poor health, and it can decide how well you are able to function the next day. Who knows – good sleep may even hold the key to a long life! 


One of the primary things that determines the quality of your sleep is the quality of the mattress on your bed. Here are some key parameters to keep in mind when setting out to purchase the perfect mattress.


1. Sleeping Position


One may change their sleeping position as many as 36 times a night. The average person does so at least 12 times. When selecting the right mattress, the first thing to consider should be your primary or most preferred sleep position.


A medium-to-firm mattress works best for a stomach sleeper by keeping the spine aligned while you sleep. Medium firmness is recommended for a back sleeper as it provides support and keeps you from sinking in and curving your spine. A soft-to-medium mattress is usually more suitable for a side sleeper as it adjusts easily to the contours of your body. 

Matching your sleep position with the right mattress will ensure that your body has the right support for optimum comfort while asleep.


2.Mattress Material


  • Coir

The most traditional and sustainable type of mattress, coir, is affordable, airy and dry. These are firm mattresses that are made more comfortable by a foam layer on top. This is a good option for you if you are looking for support at an economical price.


  • Spring

Bonnell Spring

Durable and airy, with a good bounce, this one has a traditional feel too. While offering good support, the spring coils are interconnected and do not move independently. This mattress helps you feel elevated, supported and comfortable.

Pocket Spring

Also, durable and airy, this is a premium mattress offering targeted and tailored support. The spring coils are not interconnected and can move independently. This means no partner disturbance and extra bounce. 


  • Foam

PU Foam

Polyurethane foam is bouncy, springy, and the most common, affordable type of foam. It is one of the more natural foams and least harmful to the environment.

Memory Foam

Memory foam is basically PU foam with reinforced chemicals that make it more dense, yet soft and viscous. It contours specifically to the unique curves of your body. Thermosensitivity makes it more responsive to body heat and pressure. This is the kind of mattress you want to sink into. 

HR Foam

High resilience foam is the perfect balance of comfort and support. It is airy, durable and minimises partner disturbance too. This type of foam prioritises spinal alignment and is often used in Orthopaedic mattresses.


3. Mattress Type
