How long should a mattress last?

Seven years is a good guess, but it can be affected by the quality of the mattress and the level of use – something to keep in mind if the children jump on your bed every morning. While a good quality mattress may be able to withstand ten years of loyal service, watch out for squeaky springs or a dip in the middle of the bed that give away signs that it's worn out for a loyal companion. Also pay attention to how well you sleep: If you feel stiff in the morning, wake up more often at night or settle better in other beds, it's time to give your old mattress a lift.

What should I look for when buying a mattress?

Firmness is everything. This is determined by your height, weight and how you like to sleep. Heavier or taller people should choose a firmer mattress for extra support, while those who shift positions while dozing may prefer a softer option. Look for breathable or moisture-wicking materials to avoid overheating while you sleep, and consider organic or natural materials if you want to avoid added chemicals. Still nervous about choosing? Many mattresses now come with long warranty periods or no-questions-asked trial periods, so you can curl up with one in your own home and see if it's right for you.
