How can you improve your sleep quality
Getting a good night's sleep helps you get a good start to your day. That's why, when it comes to your bedroom, all the fine details really matter. Which position do you normally sleep in? What sleep needs do you have? Try to get a better understanding of your sleeping habits and let IKEA help you choose the bedding you need to get a sound sleep.
Factors that affect sleep
Starting from the top
A good night's sleep is the key to a productive day. The more comfortable your pillow is, the better you'll sleep. Understanding the position you sleep in is the first step in helping you pick the right pillow. Next, choose the material with the right texture which can provide adequate support for your head and neck while you sleep.
Different materials for different needs of you
Which mattress is right for me? That’s a good question!
Your spine should be in a natural relaxed state when you're sleeping. When lying on your back, your spine should be in a natural S-shape, and when lying on your side, it should be horizontal and straight. Choose the right mattress to avoid the load that can be placed on the shoulders and hips if the mattress is too soft, and on the lower back if it is too hard. IKEA mattresses are available in a variety of sizes that fit your bed frames.
Different mattress materials
Choosing the right mattress material depends on your body, sleep habits, and sleep requirements. Materials will vary in hardness and support and the internal structure will also affect the overall air circulation. If you have allergies or back pain, then you should consider choosing a latex mattress because it prevents dust mites and offers better support.
These minimize the affect on your partner and evenly distribute pressure on different parts of the body.
Filled with natural materials, these mattresses are allergy-friendly, and provide better support. They offer a quality sleep experience for those with back pain or allergies.
Ways to Make Your Mattress More Comfy and Last Longer
A mattress protector helps make mattresses more durable, fresh, and clean. It also reduces daily wear and tear. Not only will it help keep your mattress clean, but it will also enhance its performance and comfort.
Most IKEA mattresses are packed in rolls for easy transport.
Leave the mattress bare for 3-4 days after opening to allow it to return to its original state. A new mattress will have a unique but harmless odor that will dissipate slowly. Place it in a well-ventilated area or use a vacuum cleaner to speed up the process. A new mattress needs time to adapt.
Cleaning and care
Use a mattress protector for easy washing and cleaning, or use a vacuum cleaner with a mattress brush head to clean up the dander and mites. Do not bend the mattress so as to avoid damaging its internal structure.
Change mattresses every 8-10 years for the best sleeping experience.
Choosing the right quilt
When you sleep, 80% of your body heat comes from the quilt and 20% from the mattress. The quilt plays an integral role in ensuring your comfort. You can choose natural or synthetic materials according to your personal preference. Changing quilts according to temperature changes throughout the seasons will help you sleep better.
Bed sheets and quilt covers
Sheets and covers are the finishing touches to helping you get a good night's sleep. Not only do they showcase your personal style, they also help create different bedroom atmospheres.
