With the holiday season almost upon us, there’s never a better time to get a new mattress.
Especially with all those early Christmas deals on mattresses offered by some of the most reputed brands in the country, there’s no reason you shouldn’t get one. After all, who doesn’t like saving money?
But we understand if the plethora of options out there leaves you confused.
Well, we don’t want you to drop the idea of bringing some of the best mattresses home simply because you couldn’t decide on one.
That’s why we’re here with our quick guide on the top 3 mattresses you should consider this Christmas. We will also provide some tips and tricks so that you can choose the right one according to your needs.
Let’s dive in, shall we?
Some of the best mattress sales can be availed early December, shortly after the Cyber Monday and Black Friday sales in November. These can also extend post-Christmas, right till the end of the year, with some of the biggest Australian mattress brands like Koala and Emma offering up to 70% off during this 4 to 6-week period.
The Emma Comfort mattress has been the number one recommended mattress by Australia's top consumer advocacy group, Choice, for two years now. Aside from being designed for all types of sleepers, it facilitates proper temperature regulation to keep you cool all night long. This is made possible by the combination of a fresh air comfort cover and point elastic Airgocell layer underneath.
Then, there’s the supportive HRX foam layer with specialised zoning technology to help with shoulder, spine and hip alignment. Besides, the foam itself contours to your body and eliminates motion transfer, no matter what sleeping position you choose. And the stable and sturdy base is equipped with handles for easy placement. This mattress is available in 4 sizes, and the brand offers many advantages like a 100-night trial, 10-year guarantee and free delivery and return.
This unit has an adjustable firmness design to classify as a firm or medium-firm mattress, depending on your requirements. All you have to do is unzip the top and flip it to get the side that works best for you. The firm side, in particular, has a dedicated hip support zone that keeps you from sinking and helps maintain a healthy sleeping posture.
Moreover, the Tencel Lyocell fibre makes up the comfort layer of this mattress to absorb and release moisture continuously, keeping you cool. It’s also treated to resist the formation of bacteria, meaning you get a hygienic sleeping environment. And the anti-slip bottom prevents it from sliding on the bed base. Much like Emma, Koala also offers a trial period (for 120 nights), free return and delivery, as well as a 10-year warranty.
Another option from Emma, the Diamond Hybrid mattress, is made from a blend of foam and pocket springs. It aims at providing 7-zone dynamic support to the body, which may aid in reducing back pain and discomfort. This mattress has also been recognised in the “good design category” in the country’s International Good Design awards, thereby instilling the faith of potential buyers in its construction.
The foam layer of this mattress is infused with graphite and diamond particles to drive away excess heat. This keeps your body at the ideal temperature so that you don’t feel excessively hot or sweaty in the middle of the night. And the removable cover is machine-washable, making it easy to get rid of accidental stains or spots. Buyers get to try this mattress for 100 nights and receive a 10-year long guarantee if they decide to keep it.
Some of the important features that will help you get the right mattress for your needs this Christmas are:
One of the first things to consider is the size of the mattress. You’d ideally want a mattress that fits your bed perfectly, but some people may go for a slightly smaller one for aesthetics. However, getting a mattress that’s too small or large can result in discomfort.
Thankfully, most mattresses come in different sizes to cater to the common bed sizes available in the country. Aside from that, some brands allow customers to customise the mattress size in case of special bed sizes.
When it comes to the material or the construction of the mattress, most people prefer choosing between an innerspring, latex, and memory foam option.
Innerspring mattresses are generally more affordable than the others, facilitating better air circulation and weight distribution (depending on the space between the coils). However, they may not be the ideal type if you’re looking for pressure relief.
On the other hand, latex mattresses are suitable for people who tend to sleep hot and those looking for something more comforting.
Memory foam offers body contouring properties, thereby suiting all types of sleeping positions. But they usually retain heat, which can result in some discomfort.
You need to weigh the pros and cons of each type before making a decision. But some people prefer going for a hybrid mattress (made from two materials) to get a unique set of advantages.
Although it can be tempting to get the most premium option that promises a lot of things, it’s better to stick to your budget to avoid overspending unnecessarily. With the advancement in mattress manufacturing technologies, you will find many budget options that enhance your sleeping experience.
Plus, the different Christmas mattress deals offered by the brands allow you to get a comfortable mattress without breaking the bank.
With that, we hope we could’ve prepared you for the sale season!
However, there’s one final thing that you should take care of before deciding on a mattress. Make sure that brand has a responsive customer service team that can solve all your queries effectively without taking days.
You should also ask the representatives about any changes in the delivery or return policies during the Christmas sale to avoid any inconvenience later.
