Types of mattresses
Open spring mattress
The spring mattresses such as King Koil’s Inner Spring mattresses typically contain one long piece of metal wire coiled into numerous springs. For the coils to maintain its shape and provide structure in the mattresses, an additional border rod or wire is also installed. These types of mattresses are great value for money and are easier to move from one bedroom to another. Most of the time, the mattresses are machine-stitched rather than hand-stitched. Nevertheless, it is advisable to be used for guest rooms or as your child’s bed. This is because; it is less supportive and also needs regular replacement.
Pocket spring mattress
Another type of mattress is the pocket spring mattress which is more luxurious compared to the open spring mattresses. Typically, they are made from individual, small springs which are housed in their own pocket of fabric. The springs move independently and provides more support which is suitable to be used long-term. Depending on your bed preference, you can buy soft, medium or firm versions. This is an ideal option for couples as the separate springs help cater for the different needs and weights. On top of that, it lessens the risk of you rolling on top of your partner throughout the night.
Memory foam mattress
For those suffering from back problems, they will benefit the most from memory foam mattresses. The modern mattresses are made from mouldable materials which also responds well to temperature and weight as well as hypo-allergenic properties. It helps to relieve pressure on your joints as the memory foam moulds to the shape of your body and absorb your weight. However, it is not suited for everyone as it causes a sinking motion and can get rather warm, which can be rather uncomfortable. Nonetheless, it makes a great mattress for those who need support for their back.
King Koil’s line of natural response latex mattresses are made from 100% natural eco-latex which offers superior comfort as it is an especially breathable material. It is best used for those who live in hotter climates as the mattress will not feel warm throughout the night. Although is slightly costly compared to the other types of mattresses, it is worth the investment as it is extremely durable and can lasts a lifetime. Similar to the memory foam mattress, it also has hypo-allergenic properties and makes a great option for those who suffer from asthma or allergies.
Size of mattress
When it comes to choosing the size of the mattress, always be reminded that freedom of movement is important to quality sleep. The sizes offered at King Koil Malaysia are Single (91x190), Super Single (107x190), Queen (152X190), and King (183X190). The company also offers special sizes which are available upon order. The best choice for 2 people would be a queen or king size, depending on the space available. Compared to the super single size, a queen size mattress offers an extra-square foot of sleeping space. King Koil also offers King-sized models with a split foundation/divan where each section is measured at 91cmX190cm and is suitable for homes with narrow stairways.
Firmness of mattress
Depending on what type of sleeper you are, the firmness of the mattress will affect the quality of your sleep. Your sleeping position, height, and weight should also be taken into consideration. There are mainly four types of mattress firmness which are soft, medium soft, medium firm, and firm. Sleepers who often change positions during the night are best suited for soft or medium soft mattresses. For those who suffer from back problems and need the extra support, it is advisable for them to opt for the medium firm mattresses. Lastly, firm mattresses are suited to sleepers who sleep on their front. This will keep your back in a relatively comfortable and stable position without allowing you to sink into the mattress while you sleep.
When to change your old mattresses?
Mattresses lose their comfort and support very gradually which can become easily unnoticeable. So, it is advisable to replace your mattress when you are having difficulty getting a restful sleep.
