Buy Base Sets

Could It Be Time to Buy New Base Sets for Your Home?

When last did you take the time to examine the beds in your home – and we mean really examine them? Various brands of base sets come with their own lifespan, but if your mattresses are pushing well past ten to fifteen years, it is probably best that you start looking into replacements. It’s not just about whether or not it feels okay while sleeping, an old mattress could become a health hazard given enough time, not to mention the effect it will have on your joints and muscles as you sleep. Here are a few ways to tell it might be time to buy a new bed.

Looks Can Be Deceiving

If your bed is incredibly old but still looks brand new, you might want to look more closely. Signs of ageing and wear are not always instantly visible on a bed, especially if it’s always covered with a comforter or duvet. Strip back the sheets and have a look at your mattress. Is there any visible sagging on the middle or at the sides? Do the spots often slept on look indented? If so, a replacement is due. You can also lift the mattress and have it stand on its side; if the centre wobbles loosely, as if no internal structure exists, it is definitely time to go shopping for new base sets.

Pay Attention to Any Noises While in Bed

Wooden and metal bed frames will inevitably creak and croak once old enough, and finding a new bed is probably for the best once this happens. Mattress innerspring coils will also squeak after a few years of use, and the lack of bounce-back is a sign that it is time to bid adieu because you are likely not receiving the support you need while sleeping.

Pain Upon Waking

The last sign indicating you need to buy new base sets happens so gradually, many people don’t put two and two together. If you find that you have been waking up with aches and pains for the last few months or years, don’t write it off as old age just yet. You might be the victim of a bed that simply doesn’t offer you the right sleep support anymore.

Why Buy Base Sets and Not Just a Mattress?

Top brands such as Cloud Nine, Sealy Posturepedic, Contour Bedding, Strand Mattress, Rest Assured, and Support-a-Paedic all create base sets, but why not just replace the mattress? The reason is that each mattress and bed base combination is designed to complement each other in support, comfort, and durability. Think of it as a sleep system, and how neglecting one component means you won’t get the best performance out of the other. For excellent sleep and that feeling of waking up refreshed, it is best to buy complete base sets to replace the old beds in your home.
