5 advantages of a mattress topper

What is a mattress topper?

A mattress topper is a thin mattress that you place on top of your regular mattress. It is available in various sizes and with a range of different cores. This product of Scandinavian origin is no superfluous luxury. Below you will find out exactly what the advantages of a top mattress are:

1. A cosy and luxurious feeling

We especially recommend a mattress topper for people who like to lie on a softer mattress. It increases your sleeping comfort and creates a first softer impression without you losing the support of your mattress. Please note that a good mattress under your topper is still a must. It is precisely for this reason that we compare a mattress topper with the whipped cream on a cake. It adds a nice, comfortable touch and looks more luxurious, but it cannot counteract the effects of a bad mattress.

2. Extends the lifespan of your mattress

Correctly maintaining your mattress is essential. After all, a good mattress is an important investment. A mattress topper extends the lifespan of your mattress. It also ensures that you do not perspire directly onto your mattress, which is what happens when you don’t have a mattress topper.
 

Important note: if you want to avoid excessive sweating at night, we recommend a mattress topper made of natural materials such as horsetail hair or wool. A mattress topper made of natural materials helps you maintain a constant body temperature throughout the night.

3. No annoying seams

Do you and your partner sleep on two separate single mattresses? Then you probably need to deal with the annoying seam in the middle. A mattress topper offers a soft and simple solution. You create the feeling of a double bed, without giving up on your individual comfort.

4. It’s easier to get out of bed

A mattress topper increases the height of your bed. This makes it easier, especially for people with back problems or people who are getting older, to get out of bed.

5. It’s easier to make your bed

A mattress topper often makes it easier for you to make your bed. If your mattress and mattress topper are upholstered with the same fabric, you simply need to put the cover over your mattress topper. The latter is much lighter than your regular mattress, so making your bed becomes child's play. 

 

 

Important remark: if you have an ordinary white mattress, you will need to use a fitted sheet with larger corners so that you can make up the mattress and mattress topper together.
