Do you need a new mattress, but don't know which one to buy because of the wide selection?

For all of you who are facing this dilemma, we have put together a brief guide to help you select the right mattress.

When is the time to buy a new mattress?

Like anything we use regularly, a mattress wears out after a few years of use. A bad mattress has a negative effect on the quality of our sleep, which directly affects our health and mood. Pay attention to these signs that your mattress might not be the best and it’s time for a new one.


Physical damage

The mattress has visible fabric damage, has lost its shape, or looks worn.



The mattress does not give you the support it used to, feel indentations or bulges in parts of the mattress. You wake up frequently and feel your partner's movement.


Old mattress

If your mattress is more than 7 years old, you should consider replacing it.

Mattresses also need to be changed for hygienic reasons:



At normal temperature, a person loses an average of 200 ml of sweat every night.


Dust mites

If you have been using the mattress for a long time and have not cleaned it regularly, dust mites have settled in your bed.


Bedroom temperature

The higher the bedroom temperature, the more ideal the conditions are for the development of all types of microorganisms.


Unpleasant odour

If your mattress has a strange and unpleasant odour, it's definitely time to replace it.


Extra warm blankets and bedding

People often cover themselves too much, so we sweat more, our skin dies more, and we have a poorer sleep.


Worn pillow

The recommended pillow lifespan is 3 years. After this time, the pillow must be replaced.

How important is the mattress height when selecting?

When selecting the height of your new mattress, take into account the fact that a higher mattress offers more comfort, as it provides more support for the lumbar area.

High mattress

30 cm and more

A high mattress (30 cm and more) is the most comfortable and offers sufficient support even for overweight people.

Medium-high mattress

20 - 30 cm

A mattress of medium height (20-30 cm) provides good support and comfort for the spine.

Low mattress

Up to 20 cm

A low mattress (up to 20 cm) is suitable for children and adolescents, as well as vital adults without back problems.

Which mattress size to choose?

When selecting the size of the mattress, stick to the guideline that it must be at least 10 cm longer than your body height. For a comfortable sleep, select a mattress that is wide enough or as wide as possible.

What mattress hardness to select?

The mattress hardness that will allow you to sleep well varies from individual to individual and depends on your body weight, sleeping pattern, and personal preferences.



Soft mattresses are intended for children, adolescents, and adults who weigh less than 75 kg and do not need a lot of spine support.



Medium hardness mattresses are the most popular among users. They are ideal for people of average body weight and a good choice if you don't normally like soft or hard mattresses.



Hard - If you have a body weight of 95 kg and more, you need a hard mattress that will provide you with sufficient support.
