Is your mattress getting old or uncomfortable? Sure, you can buy a new one, but purchasing a new mattress is expensive. A typical queen mattress starts at around $150, while special mattresses designed for ultimate comfort can cost in the thousands.
Instead of emptying your savings account for a new mattress, consider using foam to update or replace your current one. Foam can help you get a good night’s sleep. While foam is traditionally used as replacement cushions, many homeowners are now using it to create a more comfortable place to sleep at night. It has become a popular type of pad on which to sleep because foam is affordable, lightweight, and better for your body than an ordinary spring mattress. Here’s how to add some comfort to your life with these easy DIY mattress projects using foam.
Add a topper to your existing mattress. Transform an old or uncomfortable mattress with a foam topper. A foam mattress topper is an affordable way to update your mattress without having to purchase a new one. Foam toppers are designed to mold to your body’s contours, providing your neck, shoulders, back, and legs with luxurious support. Toppers are also designed to evenly distribute your weight to prevent pressure points and provide ultimate circulation.
It’s easy to find the right foam topper for your mattress. There are many types of foam toppers on the market, including memory foam toppers and latex toppers. Simply select the type of foam you wish to purchase and provide the retailer with the size of your bed. Foam toppers should come in standard mattress sizes such as full, queen, and king.
Replace your current mattress with foam. If you need a new mattress, consider purchasing a foam mattress instead of the traditional mattresses available at the store. A foam mattress costs much less than a traditional spring mattress, but comes with all of the benefits. In fact, you might find that a foam mattress is better for your body than a traditional mattress.
So what are your options when it comes to foam mattresses? There are plenty! Depending on your needs and budget, you can find a comfortable foam mattress you won’t want to get out of in the morning. Foam mattress options include memory foam, conventional foam, and latex foam.
Purchasing foam for a mattress is easy. However, you have to buy the right type of foam because you can’t use the same foam you would use as a sofa foam replacement.
