Winter chill getting to you? Us too! Cold days are here; winter is a time of year when comfort and warmth are especially valued. This also applies to the choice of our mattress, which can influence our quality of sleep and our daily well-being. But how do you choose the best mattress for this time of year? What criteria should be taken into account? This article offers some tips to help you find the ideal mattress for a good night's sleep during the winter.
How to find the mattress of your dreams compatible with cold weather
If you're like the majority of Americans, you only change your mattress every 5 to 10 years. But keep in mind that your mattress should be able to adapt to both cold and hot weather. There are several criteria to consider for winter when choosing a suitable mattress.
Choose a Thick & Dense Mattress
First, opt for a thick and dense mattress. A thicker mattress will give you support and comfort when you need it most. In summer and winter, the first criterion in choosing a mattress remains comfort and support: it guarantees restful sleep and a healthy back!
The thickness of the mattress helps ensure sufficient support, improved sleeping independence, and a better ability to distribute weight to relieve pressure points. On the other hand, density is a criterion of primary importance for judging the quality of a mattress. A dense foam often means better longevity and is accompanied by improved comfort: the denser the foam, the more welcoming it is!
Choose a Material That Keeps You Warm
Some mattresses can help you create and maintain a comfortable sleeping temperature, which is the key to quickly falling asleep. If you can't bring your body temperature down while staying warm, you can't fall asleep. Memory foam mattresses are particularly winter champions, as they adapt to the shape of your body and retain heat. But remember that memory foam is not always appreciated by everyone, especially during hot seasons when it can tend to feel hot at night. Therefore, testing your mattress before you commit is essential, which is why we offer 90 nights of worry-free sleep!
Another option is to invest in a memory foam mattress topper for the winter that you can easily remove for summertime if it makes you hot!
Choose the Right Mattress Protector
Protectors and covers can be your best friend and worst enemy of your nights. A comforter made of breathable and moisture-wicking material can help you stay warm while preventing night sweats. Night sweats are the first issue of sleeping during winter: staying warm without sweating and ensuring good ventilation of your bedding to avoid the proliferation of germs and bacteria. At Viscosoft, we favor the breathability of our protectors and hypo-allergenic properties while guaranteeing a pleasant texture and a non-flammable, non-toxic material.
And above all, have fun!
Winter, summer… the seasons follow one another. The most important criterion when choosing a mattress is your feelings: so enjoy yourself! And if you're cold, don't turn up the heat immediately; get a faux fur throw instead. Our reversible faux fur sherpa blanket will help lower your energy bills while giving you the cocooning feeling you're looking for all winter long.
