Finding the perfect mattress for you is one of your most important purchases, considering the fact that you are going to use whatever you buy every single night. The recommended sleep schedule for any adult is between seven and eight hours per night, meaning that you spend roughly 31% of your life lying down on your mattress. However, while many people choose their mattress based purely on the cost and level of comfort, you should also take into account the local climate.
Some mattresses are able to store heat and pass it on to the inhabitant, making them perfect for colder climates, while others promote airflow and can help to cool people down in the hot night air. In this blog, we want to take a look at the very best locally-sourced mattress options for anyone living in Spain, looking at both hot and cold options. On the Costa Blanca, the temperatures can be extreme – with occasional nights of -2/-3ºC, especially in the mountains and the rare summer day when the temperature reaches 40ºC and the nights not going below 25 – 17 ºC. What kind of mattress can you get to meet these difference s in temperature?
When it comes to the firmness of your mattress choice, the general rule is that the firmer the bed, the cooler it will be to sleep in. This is because firm mattresses feature less contact with the body, providing a greater flow of air. In contrast, soft mattresses allow the body to sink into the surface more, thus featuring more contact and an increased transfer of heat. However, you can also purchase doubled-sided mattresses that feature dual temperature capabilities. In short, this means that one side is designed to be perfect for hot summer months, while the other side is designed to keep you warm throughout the winter. We appreciate that the last thing you want to do is wake up at night in hot sweats or struggle to get to sleep because of the cold. However, we are also adamant that you should not have to compromise on one or the other. Your mattress should be perfect all year round.
