Benefits of Customizing Your Side of The Bed

by Bill Welles

When it comes to the buyer’s journey, we are constantly promised the convenience of a “one size fits all” product, but this rarely works out as advertised. It’s more beneficial to look for things that are custom-fit to match your life. This is true whether you’re shopping for clothing, accessories, home furnishings, and yes, even mattresses.

The more items you own that are customized to meet your specific needs, the better the world around you seems to operate. This is especially true when it comes to your sleep—if your mattress is tailored to meet your sleep preferences, you will awake feeling refreshed and rejuvenated each morning. That’s why a customized mattress is always a better choice for your health and your sleep partner—no one wants to stay awake through the night because of your earth-shattering snoring.

Different Sleep Preferences

The chances are, no matter how many things you and your partner agree on in life, sleeping is one thing you’re almost guaranteed to disagree on. Everyone has different habits and likes to cozy up in different ways. You might like a soft, comfort-oriented sleep surface with lots of cuddly blankets, sheets, and pillows, while your sleep partner prefers a firm, supportive mattress with few blankets restricting their slumber. The soft versus firm debate is a storied matchup for the ages, much like choosing between Coke or Pepsi or deciding whether or not pineapple belongs on a pizza.

The short answer is, yes, pineapple does belong, but the long answer is, when you purchase a customized mattress, the bed is made to your exact specifications. Using BedFIT’s diagnostic sleep process, you will receive a personalized report that tells you which support level is right for your body based on precise pressure and alignment-point readings.

The rating spectrum ranges from 0.5 through 4.5, targeting the heaviest points of your body to churn out reinforced support where you need it most. The lower the ideal support rating, the firmer the mattress, and conversely, the higher the ideal support rating, the softer the mattress. This means that half of the mattress can be made firmer while the other half of the mattress can be made softer to provide the ideal comfort level for each partner.

If you’re a back or stomach sleeper, you probably prefer a firmer mattress. If you like to sleep on your side, a softer comfort level probably suits you best. Weight distribution is also a factor as you want a mattress that can support your body but won’t cause you to sink into the bed. Conformed support is different for everyone, and if you’re a couple with drastically different sleep preferences, a customizable bed allows you both to rest easy and enjoy better mornings together.

Adjust Your Mattress with Your Needs

The human body requires exact care and fine-tuning in order to run at peak performance, and sleep is a large part of that. The beauty of a customizable mattress is, as your preferences change, your bed can change with you. When you first buy a mattress, you could be all about the softest foam there is, but if you hurt your back at work one day, you might want to switch to a firmer mattress top. The ability to makes changes to your mattress—adding or removing comfort along the way, is a great way to accommodate the changes taking place in your body.

The changes can come in the form of age, medical conditions, pregnancy, accidents or anything else. You may simply switch sleep positions one night and realize your bed doesn’t feel as comfortable as it used to, and need increased support and pressure point relief from your mattress. In these situations, a customizable mattress can save you from purchasing a new one altogether and extend the life of your current mattress. 

Better Sleep, Happier Life

Your mattress truly is important, and the quality of sleep you get each night makes a huge difference in your overall happiness and mood. One mattress isn’t created for everyone, which is why the ability to customize your sleep preferences with our BedFIT technology is imperative to your quality of sleep. If you’re waking up with aches and pains, you’re being robbed of the good night’s sleep you deserve.

It’s no surprise that sleepless nights can lead to extra crankiness, and when your problems are related to your mattress, it doesn’t take long to feel the negative side effects of sleep deprivation. Memory, productivity, and your health are all at risk, so a customizable mattress can ensure both you and your sleep partner experience the ideal comfort and support necessary to get quality sleep night after night.
