When & Why It’s Important to Replace Your Mattress, Gulf Shores, Alabama

Whether it’s been a long day at work or you’ve been traveling for a while, there’s nothing like the comfort of sleeping in your own bed. However, that’s only true if your mattress is good. While it may have been perfect before, these products don’t last forever. According to Beachside Furniture & Interiors, they should be replaced sooner than you may think. For 20 years, they have been the premier furniture store in Gulf Shores, AL, and their knowledgeable team has some essential information to share with you.

Average Lifespan

On average, high-quality modern mattresses should last about 10 years. Of course, this assumes it’s only been subjected to normal use; if your kids or pets have been using it as a toy, it won’t last nearly as long. Maintenance is also a factor; it should be rotated 180 degrees about every two months and if it’s double-sided, it should also be flipped over. If you haven’t been doing this, it’s likely to be lumpy and unevenly worn.

Reasons for a Replacement

It’s rare for mattresses to last the better part of a decade. Most people should seek a replacement after five to seven years for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • mattressHealth: Bodies can change significantly over 10 years, especially when you're in your 40s or older. It’s no secret that a good night's sleep is tied to numerous benefits and if you've been waking up exhausted or feeling stiff and sore, it’s time for something new.

  • Your Partner’s Sleep: Even if you aren’t bothered by the state of your mattress, the same may not be true for your partner. If they’ve mentioned having trouble sleeping or their discomfort is obvious, the two of you should shop for a new one that will satisfy both your needs.

  • New Furniture: Physical changes aren’t the only things that are inevitable. Over the course of 10 years, your interior design style is likely to have evolved too. If you’re moving or renovating your home, it's the perfect opportunity to upgrade your mattress.

If you’re in Baldwin County and in the market for a new mattress, head to the showroom at Beachside Furniture & Interiors. Their friendly and experienced staff will help you find an ideal model. Need a new bed frame to accompany it or any other bedroom furniture? They carry those too! For more information, visit their website and Facebook Page or call them today at (251) 968-2734.
