    4 THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE INVESTING IN A NEW MATTRESS

    As we begin to curate our homes into a cosy sanctuary for the Winter months, it’s often a time when we look at investing in making our bedroom a space that inspires warmth and supports our wellbeing. 

    One of the most important investment pieces within your bedroom is your mattress and with the Better Sleep Council recommending that you replace your mattress every 10 years, we thought it would be the perfect time to share some simple things to consider before you decide on the right mattress for you. 

    1 | UNDERSTANDING WHAT YOUR MATTRESS IS MADE FROM 

    Not every mattress is created equally and that’s why it’s important to understand the journey your mattress went on to be created. Before your mattress arrives in your home some key details to understand are how your mattress is crafted, what treatments are used, and how the materials are harvested. We delve into the journey behind creating our Natural Organic Latex Mattress on our journalhere

    2 | KNOWING THE CERTIFICATIONS AND STANDARDS

    Carefully consider whether or not the appropriate certifications and standards have been met to ensure the best mattress for your health and the environment.  Our Totem Road Natural Organic Latex Mattress has been tested by the world-renowned German Eco Certification body, Eco-INSTITUT and the Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX. Testing and standards ensure that that there are no hazardous chemicals used in the production process and gives you peace of mind knowing that your mattress will not produce any unhealthy toxins while you sleep. 

    3 | INVESTING IN A RESTFUL SLUMBER 

    Ensure a restful night sleep with a mattress that provides the highest level of comfort and support. The ventilation of your mattress is important to ensure that air is able to move in and out of your mattress when you move during your sleep to make sure that you maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the night. 

    4 | CHOOSING A MATTRESS THAT IS MADE FOR LONGEVITY

    If you’re only going to be replacing your mattress every 10 years then you want to make sure that you choose one that is made to guarantee both support and durability for the next decade. This will not only support your health and wellbeing for years to come but it will also reduce your environmental impact by lowering your contribution to landfill.
