Buying mattresses: correctly determining the degree of hardness
The right mattress should be ergonomically optimal for you. So that you feel good, you should be able to determine the degree of hardness correctly. Several criteria play an important role: the body length, the weight, the preferred sleeping position and the hardness of the bed are just a few of them. The degree of hardness is marked with the letter “F” or with the letter “H” and varies from H1 to H5, with H1 being very soft, H2 being soft, H3 being medium firm, H4 being hard and H5 being being very hard. Basically, mattresses with a degree of hardness H2 are suitable for people with a body weight of less than 70 kg and a body length of up to 190 cm. H3 hardness mattresses are a good choice for people with a body weight of up to 80 kg and a body length of up to 190 cm. The hardness level H4 is recommended for people with a body weight of up to 120 kg and a maximum body length of 170 cm. It is not advisable to use mattresses that are too soft or too hard (H1 and H5). There is also a solution for those who sleep in a double bed. Each side of the Sleeep mattresses from Cologne production can be configured individually. From a width of 140 cm, the degree of hardness can be determined according to the personal needs of the sleeper.
Buying a mattress: It all depends on the right accessories!
A high quality mattress can be recognized by the high quality accessories. For example, the top cover should be washable up to 60 degrees Celsius, have a four-sided zipper and be suitable for allergy sufferers. Knitted covers prove to be particularly practical, they are less voluminous than the quilted version and fit in the washing machine. The base cover should preferably be made of cotton – the fabric dissipates heat and absorbs moisture better. Silk is also a popular choice. The silk textiles not only score points with their pleasant feel, they also have an air-conditioning effect. In the hot summer months they feel cool, in winter – warming. Cashmere covers are also suitable for the winter months. They are the perfect selection for discerning sleepers who like the warming feeling of wool, or who want a supple textile in any case.
