Why choose a customizable mattress?
Customizable mattresses benefit all kinds of sleepers but they’re especially helpful for those looking for a particular feel.
For example, if you’re a side sleeper, you could benefit from a mattress that focuses on pressure point relief. And if you’re a stomach sleeper, you need firm, stable support so that your stomach does not sink into the mattress, causing your back to arch.
A customizable mattress can also be adjusted years down the road if your body or comfort preferences change. It’s truly a mattress designed to last and saves you the hassle of switching out your mattress every few years.
A customizable mattress may only consist of latex or it may be a hybrid mattress, meaning a combination of latex and coils.
We personally do not recommend polyurethane or memory foam mattresses, which you can learn more about here.
After choosing a mattress model, the next step is selecting the exact mattress configuration you want, essentially answering the question: How do I want this mattress to feel?
If you’re looking at an all-latex mattress, that means determining which layers of latex you want in your mattress. Some mattresses are available in both Dunlop and Talalay latex, while others only offer one latex option.
Each type of latex should be available in various densities. This allows you to manipulate the feel of the mattress.
Customizable mattresses are typically more expensive than standard mattresses because of the inherent nature of the product. These unique mattresses accommodate a vast array of people, seeing each customer as an individual instead of simply one of many.
It is this ability to zero in on a person’s needs to achieve comfortable and healthy sleep that makes the price go up.
Organic and natural materials will also add to the cost.
Is it worth it? Absolutely.
A customizable mattress is a worthy investment and assures that you’re sleeping on a product that truly caters to your needs rather than putting your faith in a generic, mattress-in-a-box.
Sleep is vital and an integral part of our health and happiness. If your mattress is simply “okay,” that will affect your mood, energy levels, and overall daily routine.
