Mattresses are an important part of our daily lives. The average person sleeps 2,920 hours each year, so having a comfortable mattress that suits your needs can be the difference between a comfortable night’s sleep and an aching back. Whatever your needs are, Furniture Fair has the perfect sleep solution for you!
The size of your mattress is completely dependent on your preferences, room size, and lifestyle.
Twin – This size is a great option for kids to grow into. This size can last for years, especially for smaller children.
Twin XL – Think college dorm room. Meant to fit most adults, this size is a great option for cramped rooms without much space.
Full – Wider than a Twin, Full mattresses are perfect for single adults (or two people who don’t mind being close at night.) Still perfect for smaller rooms, the Full mattress is the mattress of choice for smaller apartments.
Queen – The Queen is the most popular mattress choice, as it fits both one and two people comfortably. One person can spread out with room to spare, and two people are able to still have their space.
King – The King is the same height as the Queen but provides a lot more space. Two people fit very comfortably, and both people and pets can lay out for a movie night or family time. Taller or larger people will find this size very comfortable.
A mattress is an investment that should last for years. The average life expectancy varies depending on the type of material is used to manufacture it. Therefore, some mattresses will last longer while others will need to be replaced soon.
The majority of good-quality mattresses have a lifespan of 7-10 years. However, it can last over 10 years (sometimes even more) depending on the level of care. Most mattresses should be replaced within 10 years to get the best results. Generally, foam and latex mattresses tend to last longer than the average lifespan. A memory foam mattress can last well over 10 years due to the supportive and durable high-density foam that makes these mattresses special.
Mattresses need maintenance just like other home furnishings. While we often forget, your mattress needs to be cleaned to make it last longer. Below you’ll find the steps necessary to give your mattress a good clean!
