Best Buy Base Sets

You’ve decided that it’s time to buy a new bed, because your old one, particularly the mattress, is tired, worn and visibly sagging in certain spots. You may ask, should I buy a complete set or merely a mattress for my existing bed?

Despite the fact that base sets are somewhat more expensive to buy compared to a mattress only, it is generally better to buy a sleep system that consists of both. Opting for cheaper sets will also be to your detriment, so let’s consider a few advantages that can better guide your decisions:

Benefits of Buying Base Sets

  • Both components of base sets are designed and manufactured to go together, so there’s no risk of sleeping on the wrong base with the right mattress and vice versa.
  • This matched set ensures that you get the right degree of support and counter-pressure where you need it.
  • The correct base set increases the comfort level and durability of the matching mattress, meaning that it’ll be beneficial for you and the longevity of the product/s.
  • Ventilation of the system is enhanced – a vital factor that influences the quality and comfort of your sleep, as well as the longevity of the bed set.

The Lifespan of Base Sets

No bed or mattress lasts forever. Most have an average optimal lifetime of 7 – 10 years, although some have been known to last much longer. Certain manufacturers of superior, premium products may offer warrantees and specified guarantees that exceed these averages.

Nevertheless, there are umpteen variables which may influence the aforementioned time period; there’s no hard and fast, totally accurate expected lifespan for any sleep system.

Signs that It’s Time to Buy Anew

  • The bed and/or mattress sags or even tears in the areas on which you sleep.
  • The mattress or bed is noisy when you move or shift your weight.
  • No matter how hard you try to roll over and find a new, more comfortable spot, you still find yourself returning to and lying exactly where you started.
  • The mattress smells musty or stuffy, or its covering fabric is badly stained.
  • Waking up and still feeling tired, with or without back, shoulder, neck or body aches, or a dull or pounding headache.
  • Allergies appear to be worse once you’re in bed.
  • You and your partner disturb one another when you change position, and this is a new occurrence.
  • You’ve developed a health condition that warrants buying a new base set or mattress, one which provides better support and comfort for these altered circumstances.

Basic Buying Tips

  • Buy from an established, reputable supplier like Ericssons Mattress & Pine, where we have numerous base sets on offer; a significant number of them are on display.
  • Don’t buy before you test and try – an essential element of selecting the best set for you.
  • Buy base sets that offer the best support and comfort level you can afford.
  • Also consider the future and your circumstances, and whether a smaller or bigger base set would be a better investment.
  • Take note of recommended maximum weight-bearing capacity, provided by the manufacturer. The same applies to checking warranties.
  • Select the product size that suits you and fits in your bedroom to avoid having a “wall-to-wall” bed, with too little space to manoeuvre around.
