Best Full-Size Mattress for Teens

A mattress is a very impactful product on your teen's physical and mental health. The full mattress your kids or teens sleep on can considerably affect their motivation and overall well-being. Sleep can even affect their mood and ability to manage emotions effectively throughout the day. Since sleep is so important, what is the best full-size mattress for teens?

As your teen approaches adulthood, they are reaching puberty, which can already cause some weird and awkward moments. Facilitating a good night’s sleep is one of the tools you as parents have to help regenerate your teen’s mental health and physical strength. And because health and sleeping well are key during the teenage years, the mattress you purchase for your growing teenager will be more noticeably significant in their day-to-day life.

Since most parents don’t shop for a mattress very often, it can leave even the most confident parents feeling easily apprehensive. Because mattress-buying circles around the idea of comfort, some parents and teens become hesitant during the decision-making process. With an overload of online marketing information about mattresses, it has become difficult to filter through the nonsense and get to what may be best for a teenage loved one.

Mattress brands supply a bounty of information about why their mattress is superior, often with little or no suggestions to identify which mattress is the proper fit for their specific needs, body types, and sleep preferences. All it takes is just one mattress-related internet search to have you followed by a constant inundation of mattress ads, coupons, or information, leading some teens to excitement but others reluctant before even setting foot inside a store.

Comfort is Intuitive

At Mattress World Northwest, we recognize that sleeping well and overall mattress comfort is not based solely on one specific aspect. Achieving consistently good sleep is multi-faceted, and there are many pieces to helping your teen sleep better, especially if other conditions such as scoliosis or insomnia are of concern. The right full-size mattress for your teen will help their lack of sleep by allowing them to relax more easily, fall asleep faster, and stay asleep longer. Deep sleep is very important to the trajectory of your teenager’s growing body, and, most importantly, “comfort” is specific to each individual person. How the mattress supports, feels, and fits the body while managing temperature is key to great sleep.

Mattress World Northwest can lend a hand in refining your options to find the best mattress for your teenager. Inside our locations are a curated selection of the best full-size mattresses for teens available on the market today. You will only shop for the best of the best at Mattress World Northwest!

Making the Final Decision for Your Teen’s Mattress

Since most people do not purchase a mattress for a teenager very often, meticulous research fuels the need to make the ‘right decision’ to improve sleep for their loved ones. Buying a full-size mattress for a teenager is not just purely shopping – it’s committing to a new mattress and the ability to sleep. After all, you will be very close to it for about a decade!

With much importance rightfully placed on this decision, consumers will go to great lengths to ensure that all the boxes are checked before making a final decision. Approximately 46% of shoppers will invest over 30 days to evaluate all options before buying a mattress. Others may decide more quickly, but more often mattress shopping becomes a lengthy process necessary to make an informed decision for your teen.

Longevity and comfort are the most important factors when considering any brand or mattress style. Kids and teenagers occupy a growing body, making support through proper posture equally important, especially for those who may have spinal curvature, scoliosis, or other sleep concerns like insomnia or narcolepsy.

There are about 16,000 places to shop for a mattress in the U.S. alone! With around 600 brands to choose from, it is no wonder most people find shopping for the best mattress to be a little bit daunting.
