Welcome to your guide to knowing when it’s time to change your mattress and the best mattress brands on the market.
The average person spends 26 years of their life sleeping, and conventional wisdom (and hygiene) would dictate that it’s not spent on the same mattress. But when is it time to retire your mattress?
Under normal conditions, mattresses should be replaced every six to eight years. This is a general guideline, but time’s about up for your faithful mattress if one or more of the following apply.
When should I change my mattress?
For starters, your mattress is negatively affecting your sleep, and you find that you sleep better at hotels, friends’ houses, etc.
The state of your physical well-being is another clue, whether it’s an increase in allergies and asthma or regularly waking up with muscle or joint stiffness.
Finally, the actual state of the mattress will give you an inkling. When you change your sheets, you notice it’s saggy or damaged in certain areas or makes more noise than usual (noisy springs are common in old innerspring mattresses).

It may seem like a bold claim, but these four brands believe that their mattresses are so good you’ll not want to part with them.

Much has been written about King Living’s amazing steel frame beds, which come with a 25- year warranty but did you know that the Australian brands Sleep+ mattresses come with a 30-day mattress warranty?
