Mattress Sizing

Our premium range of leading brand mattresses are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes that will suit any bedroom or living space. From small single to double sizes to King and Super King sizes mattresses, we have something to suit everyone.

The size of your mattress is one of the first, not mention, most important decisions you need to make. There are many options available but here are some handy tips when choosing the best size that suits you:

  1. Take the mattress for a test drive. When shopping for a mattress, try to lie on the mattress in the store for at least 10 to 15 minutes. Don't feel self-conscious, it's a big purchase, and if you don't try it for at least 10 minutes you're not going to get a real feel for it. Couples should test out the mattress together.

  1. Firm mattresses aren't always better for your back. Think twice before buying a hard or firm mattress, as some research has shown that the best mattress for low back pain is a medium firm mattress rather than a firm mattress. There is a difference between firm support and firm feel. You want firm support with a comfortable feel. Comfort will be determined by your personal preference.

  1. A mattress should be at least 10cm longer than the height of the tallest person using it.4. The width of the mattress should allow you to be able to put both hands under your head without your elbows touching the edge of the mattress or the person sleeping next to you.

Remember, it's your mattress, your back, and your money, so it's worth the time to research it and get the best mattress possible and here at Ger Gavin Home Interiors we are here to assist and to give the best possible sound advise.
