Things to consider: Personal preference, room size, number of persons in bed etc.
The mattress base needs to support the new mattress effectively. Like mattresses, over a 7-10 year period, bases will begin to slump, sag or creak also. To be certain that maximum body support from your new mattress is achieved, simply purchase a new matching base. Same applies for slatted beds.
Use past experience as a guide and stick to what you know. Replace your current spring mattress with a new spring mattress. Or replace your current latex mattress with a new latex mattress. Attempt to identify the specifications of your current mattress, so that you can find the same or similar mattress online.
If you wish to choose a different mattress variety, say spring to latex, or latex to spring because you have recently slept on an opposing variety and loved it. Same advice applies. Simply identify the specifications of the trialled mattress, so that you can find the same or similar mattress online.
Utilise the Mattress Selector to assist with this process and click on FAQ on the menu bar above for further information. And certainly contact Customer Service should you require confirmation of your choice, or simply require further information.
