Most people have no real idea on what to look for in mattress designs as many tend to judge mattresses through cost, size, how it bounces and how they feel. Consumers mostly tend to nod and agree with the sales representative droning on in the background while they test the mattress comfort level with their backs. This little piece is written to make people understand what the person making that white noise is actually saying in terms of mattress types and materials and can be highly beneficial in the long run when buying that new mattress. It’s basically the differences between materials like latex, memory foam, innerspring and how they feel separately or mixed together. We want consumers to choose the best mattresses for their hard-earned money and to have a good night’s rest after that hard work earning it. Here is a list of the 4 main mattress designs, memory foam, innerspring, latex and hybrid.
Memory foam – sounds like it was invented past year 2000 but it has actually been around since the 1970s within the walls of NASA. Memory foam is known for its body-contouring properties as it seems to remember the contours of the person it comes in contact with but maintains a certain firmness that supports the body and relieves some pressure. Memory foam mattresses are now available in various styles and constructions. They come with multiple layers of firmness and/or combined with other foam types to give various types of sleepers the ultimate comfort.
Innerspring – is what it sounds like. Beds made up of a set of steel coils covered and padded with layers of material and finished with a cool sturdy cotton covering or similar fabric. Despite advances in technology, this type of bed has never gone out of style and is still preferred by many due to its flexibility, comfort and level of cooling not present in other types of beds. Modern innerspring beds provide the same comfort as their purely foam counterparts but with better cooling and layered with various foam types including memory foam.
Latex – like memory foam and innerspring has been around for decades and has become a staple mattress material that provides a comfort level somewhere between the two previous types. It’s known for its comfortable texture that promotes pressure relief. Latex is also a surprisingly organic material made from the milked sap of rubber trees. Latex mattresses are often built as layers with varying degrees of firmness. Many latex mattress brands feature varying degrees of firmness, bounce and temperature regulation.
Hybrid mattress – is exactly what it sounds like. It’s the mixture of two or all of the previous types described. This is the mattress type for people who want the contouring of memory foam, the comfort of latex and the cooling, durability and bounce of innerspring. As suggested, hybrid mattresses are built to provide consumers the benefits and experience of the three types combined. Visit – Best Hybrid Mattress
It’s important for buyers to also know who these types of beds are made for as one has to consider the use. Will the sleeper be alone or be with a partner? Preferences will not be equal but one type of bed should be a good compromise or fit for both.
