How to Choose a Mattress: Sweet Dreams in Las Vegas

Generally speaking, mattresses are considered to be relatively long-term investments. Choosing the right mattress over the wrong one is the difference between sleeping well or sleeping rough. Seeing as you’ll be sleeping on it every night or the foreseeable future, it’s worth putting in diligent consideration when selecting your next mattress.

The quality of your mattress plays a significant role in determining the quality of your sleep. Considering how important sleep is to your overall health and well-being, it’s probably not a purchase you want to cut corners on.

Not sure what to look out for when selecting your next mattress? Let us help you by outlining some of the most important factors in choosing the right mattress.

What to Consider When Buying a New Mattress

So, what constitutes a good mattress? Like many other things in life, there’s no objective definition for a good mattress. It differs greatly between individuals and largely depends on body type, firmness preference, and style of the bedroom. Here are some of the most important aspects to take into consideration.

Mattress Size

There’s no objectively ideal mattress size–it’s not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ kind of situation. The ideal size for an individual (or couple) depends on several factors which need consideration in tandem with each other.

How Many People Will It Sleep? Of course, if the bed needs to sleep two people, it’s going to have to be at least a queen-sized mattress. Unless you know for sure that it’s only going to have to sleep one person, it might be a safer bet to get a double-sized mattress.

Among other things, mattresses vary in width and length. A mattress that comfortably sleeps a young child may not be sufficiently long for a fully grown man of above-average height. It can be helpful to measure your height and make sure you’ll have a few extra inches of legroom on whatever mattress you choose.


Different people find different types of mattresses comfortable. Some people prefer firm mattresses that offer support and rigidity while others prefer soft mattresses that cushion their movements. This is something you might want to figure out before purchasing your next mattress.

Body Weight

It’s worth noting that heavier people tend to sink into mattresses more. In this case, firmer mattresses may be the better option, otherwise, you’ll find the mattress springs degrading prematurely. Be sure to put some time into discovering what works best for you.

The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt® Firm mattress is a luxury firm mattress for those who prefer a bit more support during sleep. It offers two firmness options to accommodate changing preferences and is developed with multi-layer comfort-enhancing memory foam.

It also has state-of-the-art cooling and ventilation technology to help you maintain a comfortable sleeping temperature.


If you’re someone who heats up a lot during sleep or lives in a hot climate then you would benefit from a mattress with cooling technology. Such mattresses ‘react’ to your body heat and work to maintain a comfortable temperature, helping you achieve a more fulfilling sleep.

The Serta Arctic Premier Hybrid  is a luxury cooling mattress with a three-layered cooling system that responds to the temperature of your body. It is constructed with high-density memory foam which results in a highly-personalized sleep experience.

The World of Mattress Accessories

It’s unlikely that you’re planning on buying a mattress and simply plunking it bare naked in the middle of your bedroom floor, right? This is why choosing the right mattress accessories is another important part of making sure you get the sleeping experience that you deserve.


Having the right material for your bedding really contributes to enjoying a good sleep and waking up feeling fresh and hygienic. Bamboo bedding has natural antibacterial properties that fight against odor and contribute to an overall feeling of freshness during sleep.

Mattress Protectors & Toppers

If you’re hoping to get decent longevity from your newly purchased mattress, it’s a good idea to invest in some mattress protectors and mattress toppers. This will ensure that your mattress lasts longer without obtaining stains and decoloration. Mattress toppers also add another padded layer of support that cushions as you sleep, reducing joint and muscle pain.

Pillow Accessories

Aside from adding an extra layer of comfort and hygiene, pillow protectors increase the longevity of your pillows. They protect the main body of the pillow from being contaminated with bacteria and fight against decoloration.

The OmniGuard Pillow Protector protects you from harmful bacteria, allergens, and bedbugs. It completely encapsulates the pillow within a ziplock protective case. It has a high level of breathability and airflow.
