The general rule of thumb is to replace a mattress after its 8 years old. However, remember this number is just an approximate figure, and some good quality mattresses last for 12 – 15 years or even more. It all depends on the type of mattress you have and the brand.
Ok, now coming to the next big question,
There’s no right and wrong mattress. It all depends on personal preferences – some people sleep better on a firm mattress, while others prefer soft beds. To simplify your research, here we list, some of the common types and features of mattresses in India, helping you choose the right one.

Everyone has a unique sleeping position – on the back, on the stomach, on the sides, a bit of each. When shopping for a mattress, you have to consider your predominant sleeping position to choose the right firmness level that works for you. Here’s a quick guide to choosing the right mattress firmness levels based on sleeping positions:
While e-commerce shopping has grown in popularity, we highly recommend that you visit a physical store for mattress shopping. Leading mattress retailers stock a wide range of mattress brands and types for a particular reason – this helps customers sit, lie down, and feel different mattresses to choose what they need and identify their preferences.
Don’t go mattress shopping in a rush. Ensure that you have plenty of time. We urge you to let go of your shyness, kick off your shoes, and lie down in different mattresses. Spend at least 5 to 10 minutes on each mattress to pick the right one that offers you support and comfort.
Remember, that a mattress is an investment that could very well last over a decade if done right. So, make sure you spend some time, speak with the salesperson, understand the pros and cons of different brands, and make the right choice to enjoy long nights of deep zzzzzzzzssss!.
