WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MATTRESS AVAILABLE AT HABITAT?
Do you know there are several different styles of mattress? Well that’s the case, and each one offers something that little bit different. On one hand, there’s open spring. This type is made from supportive wire, coiled into springs. Reliable and durable, with comfortable polyester, these beds are best as guest beds, rather than everyday use.
Another spring option is the pocket spring. Made from individual springs, each wrapped in fabric pockets, this mattress conforms to your body shape and lessening the effect of partner movement. Perfect for that relationship harmony we referenced above.
are designed to prevent muscle and joint pain. As you sleep, your natural body heat softens the mattresses at tailor-made points, giving support to the body’s curves and natural lines. This helps air to circulate and reduces the build-up of excess body heat. This mattress also promises to prevent aches and pains in your joints and muscles - we like to think it massages you while you sleep.
In the same 'family' as the memory foam, we also offer mattresses designed to provide optimum back care. If you’re prone to a bad back, a mattress designed specifically to provide the support it needs is an essential, not a luxury, therefore an orthopaedic mattress is a must. You'll thank us for it in the morning.
Finally, we have natural mattresses. Handmade using 100% natural fillings, this design is full of scrumptious layers of natural wool, cotton, silk and cashmere. Don’t they sound like heaven? They feel just as good too, apparently. Natural mattresses conform to your body, lessen effects of your partner moving in the night, while also offering heightened back care and working to keep you cool. Magic in a mattress.
WHAT MATTRESS FIRMNESS LEVEL IS BEST FOR YOU?
If you’ve ever talked mattresses with your friends (just us?) you will no doubt have noticed that everyone has an opinion on the firmness of a mattress - and everyone thinks their own opinion is right. But, in reality, it’s a very personal thing, and all we can tell you is that no one person is correct. There simply are no rules. When it comes to a subject such as this, it really is a simple case of trial and error. Everyone likes a different level of firmness depending on their personal needs - all you need to do is find the one that works for you.
A lot of it is typically common sense. If you like a mattress with a lot of support, try one of our firmer options - Habitat offers mattresses to suit medium to firm back support and spinal alignment. Soft mattresses are comfortable for different reasons, but won’t provide the same orthopaedic qualities, therefore it really depends on your health needs, together with your comfort preferences.
DRESSING YOUR NEW MATTRESS FOR A COMFORTABLE NIGHT'S SLEEP
Once your mattress is in place, just calling out to be slept on, all that’s left is for you to add those finishing touches, those little nighttime idiosyncrasies that make your bed special to you. First up, we recommend laying the foundations with a- you never know. These are the perfect way to shield your mattress from accidents - if the kids come into your bedroom, or bedtime drinks have a tendency to be spilt. (We’ve all been there.)
Following this, you will no doubt want to showcase the bed with a luxe- nothing on Earth ever looks as inviting as freshly made That being said, no bed is complete without a bed frame - sleeping on a mattress on the floor is very romantic the first night you move into a new home, but the novelty soon wears off. At Habitat we offer a variety of options, from contemporary styles to those with a more traditional aesthetic. All you have to do is decide which one will give you the sweetest dreams.
