You will need special sheets if you are purchasing a very thick mattress with a thick pillow top. Nicks Got Your Back offers a selection of high profile or deep pocket sheets that fit very well on these thicker mattresses. When selecting sheets, it is also important to keep in mind that your sheets are part of your sleep environment, therefore comfort, thickness and softness should be considered when making your sheet selection.
The box spring acts as the foundation of the bed. It provides support for the mattress by acting as a shock absorber. These mattress and box spring were designed to compliment each other when working together as a set. Although there are several types of platform beds that do not use a box spring, pairing your new mattress with an old box spring is not recommended.
Your new mattress should be rotated every week for the first few months and each month thereafter. This pattern will allow you to get the most even wear and extend the life of your mattress.
While the industry standard is eight to ten years, mattresses should be evaluated regularly for comfort and quality. If you find yourself realizing that the quality of sleep that you are getting is not the same as it was in prior months, it is time to get a new mattress. In addition, as we go through life, our lifestyles and bodies change. Your mattress should always be comfortable to get the best night’s sleep possible.
