It is, after all, where you spend at least eight hours a night resting and recuperating after a long day — and that's before factoring in naps and time lounging with your phone or a book.

However, with so many options available on the market, picking the right mattress can seem daunting, especially if you're on the hunt for your first one since moving out of your childhood bedroom. 

If you're not sure what to look for in a mattress, here are some tips to help guide you:

1. Choose the type of mattress that fits your comfort level

Firm or extra firm? Memory foam or pocket spring? Take into account your sleep positions while deciding on a mattress. Side sleepers will usually prefer a soft to medium level firmness, while those who prefer sleeping on their stomach, back, or a combination of those positions tend to opt for firmer mattresses.

Achy joints bother you as you sleep? Then a memory foam mattress may be what you're looking for, as it offers pressure relief by conforming to your body.  Pocket spring or innerspring mattresses, on the other hand, are another popular option as they offer firmer, bouncier support for your back.  However, even with your preferences and specs available, keep in mind that the mattress you pick should feel comfortable to sleep on. 

2. Determine if you're a hot sleeper, and find a mattress that will keep you cool as you sleep

Whether it is due to hot and humid weather or if you're a naturally hot sleeper, feeling sweaty and clammy can stall bedtime, especially if you don't have air conditioning or find yourself turning it on every night.  

Fortunately, there are mattresses made with cooling material, precisely for this pain point! These days, you can find countless foam mattresses that are designed to allow for varying levels of heat transfer, helping hot sleepers sleep soundly throughout the night. 

3. Consider your budget but don't settle for an uncomfortable mattress

Ideally, you should go into mattress buying with a budget in mind. Mattresses come with pros and cons, and so will the prices, which vary accordingly. Just because a mattress is expensive, does not necessarily mean that it will serve your needs. 

Conversely, one on the other end of the price spectrum will not mean you're getting your money's worth. The key here is to look for the best comfort while staying within your price point. 

Ultimately, the biggest takeaway here is to look for a mattress that is comfortable for you.

If you're looking for ideas, you can consider a mattress from Coway's just-launched Eco Lite Series.
