If you are stuggling to ged a good night’s sleep because you no longer feel comfortable in your bed, then a mattress topper could be help to soon be drifting off for the sweetest of dreams.

What is a mattress topper?

A mattress topper is exactly what it sounds, it’s an extra layer which you put on top of your mattress to give you extra comfort and protect your bed.

They are made of a range of different materials, and you’ll be able to find one for any bed size, from single to emperor.

Why is a mattress topper useful?

With the ability to prolong the life of an existing mattress which isn’t as good as it used to be, while providing extra comfort and support, the mattress topper is a cost effective option without having to buy a brand new mattress.

If you know your mattress is coming to the end of it’s life then a mattress topper can help it last for even longer, but even if your mattress is brand new then a mattress topper can still help it to last as long as possible.

They’re also a great way of making other types of mattress, for example airbeds, a lot more comfortable for any guests you may have. If needed, mattress toppers can even be placed directly on the floor to sleep on to provide a cushion layer that’s way better than sleeping on a hard floor.

A matteress topper is not, however, a long term solution. Experts suggest that mattresses should be changed ever seven to 10 years, so it’s been a few years since you bought your mattress - of if yours is generally feeling uncomfortable and you are no longer refreshed when you wake up from sleep even with a mattress topper - then it’s time to consider a new one.
