Top 5 ways to know if you need a new mattress

 The quality of our bed and mattress can affect our health and happiness in a tremendous way. Mattresses are arguably one of the widely used and most important pieces of furniture at home, it’s quite easy to completely forget to keep a check  long periods of time without realizing that they might be in bad shape and keeping you in bad shape as well.

Mattresses are often camouflaged under sheets and a comforter. We cannot see the wear and tear on everyday basis. Over the years, constant usage often breaks down the spring system and make the inner foam saggy in the corners, eventually leading you to not get a good night’s sleep.

It is really easy to forget about them and regularly checking if they are still in sleep worthy condition.

Check your old mattress

Have you ever thought of replacing your old mattress?

Below are essential top five signs that show that the time has come to get rid of the old mattress. Buying a new mattress can be tricky , expensive and challenging.

 1. Waking up sore and tired.



Do you ever wake up feeling like you never slept?
Does your body feel stiff or sore in early morning?
If you’re waking up to new pains in your back and lower back, your mattress surface and foam is not supporting you throughout the night.

It is time to go shopping for a new mattress. Buying a new mattress can be tricky and challenging. This where Slumberzone NZ beds and mattress help you find the right mattress to best suit your needs.

Avoid waking up sore with Slumberzone beds and mattresses.

Take these as warning signs that your mattress is no longer providing the vital support your lower back and body needs to totally relax and rest all night long. When your mattress fails in providing comfort and support, you will surely toss n turn more often, leading to a bad sleep cycle.


2. Worn, Torn, Saggy n Lumpy

Make sure you check your mattress while changing the sheets. Inspect the mattress for any signs of wear and tear. Any visible sign of being lumpy and saggy indicates that it is the right time to replace it.

3. Couch surfing and recliner lovin!

When you find yourself sleeping on a recliner or the couch and finding it even more comfortable than your bed, this is a warning sign that you need to go to mattress shopping.



Many people who love to sleep on a recliner may benefit from an adjustable bed. You sure don’t want to be sleeping on the couch in your own home when you have a king size bed waiting you to dream like a pro.

4. Age matters!

Scientists suggest that a good rule is to replace your mattress every six to seven years.

If 7 years is the age of your mattress, then a new mattress is more likely to improve your sleep routine.

If you’re turning 40, it might be advised to get a new mattress every four to seven years because our bodies tends to pressure more on the mattress surface as we get older.

5. Tossing n Turning



We are not talking about a new dance routine here!

Stop tossing and turning around with Slumberzone beds and mattresses.

If your partner is tossing and turning all night, you probably aren’t getting comfortable sleep either. This means that the mattress no longer reduces motion transfer like it was supposed to motion transfer. Well, a brand new mattress will not only improve how you sleep pattern at night, it can greatly improve your health and mindset.

A guide to help you choose between King size mattress and Queen size mattress.

We live in a world full of choices. Most decisions can be made easy by our generic needs. If you want a better Camera in your phone you might buy an IPhone, but if you want better software compatibility, you might go for an Android device. The choices today aren’t limited to different products but also between different size options of the same product. A large phone has wider screens but can be painful to carry around. A small one is easy to carry but harder to type on. But we aren’t here to talk about phones. We are here to talk about the dilemma of King and Queen size Mattress.


Buying a bed is a long-term investment, an investment for much-needed rest and sleep periods that your mind and body need to give your days a jump-start. There are two factors that can make this decision quite critical.

  1. A bed that’s too small

Although there could be many reasons that can lead you to buy a small mattress, buying a mattress that’s too small could lead to long-term inconveniences. Making sure that you have space that’s big enough to fit in all your furniture is important, but what’s more important is making sure that the space you (and your partner) need for a seamless downtime is a consideration that must take priority. A bed is the most important piece of furniture in your bedroom and if there are less essential things you can move out of your bedroom to make more space for a bigger bed then you must do so.

  1. A bed that’s too big

Are you looking for a bed for your smaller guest rooms? Are there well-established personal space limits between you and your partner that aren’t too large in size? You don’t own pets that like to hop on the bed early mornings and cuddle? There are options that allow you to optimally cut down on sleeping space while still providing you the comfort that your body is used to and at the same time save you the precious space you need in your room for other essential objects and activities.

Slumberzone keeps these considerations in mind and offers beds in these size variations:

  • QUEEN- 152cm x 202cm
  • KING – 167cm x 202cm
