When should you buy sleep accessories?
When you should buy an accessory depends on what you need.
If you’re buying a mattress for the very first time, then it’s likely you’ll also need to buy pillows, bedding, a bed frame, a duvet, and a mattress protector.
If you’re replacing an old mattress, then you’ll have all of the basics already and should be good to still use them - unless you’re upgrading or downgrading your bed to a different size.
Other mattress accessories can be bought when the need arises.
For example, if your mattress is too firm and you’re getting back pains, but you can’t return it, then you can invest in a mattress topper.
Or, if you and your partner have decided to sleep on two separate mattresses to form one double bed, then you may wish to invest in a bed bridge.
In general, though, it’s a good idea to invest in sleep accessories if you’ve noticed that the quality of your sleep is dwindling and could be improved by a sleep accessory.
