How do I choose the best mattress?

You have decided that now is the time to get a new mattress. You are planning to buy a brand new bed frame and would like to know what kind of mattress will suit you best. So how do you decide which mattress is right for you?

There are several different types of mattresses, and there are also several different brands available in the market.


Types of mattresses

1. Memory foam mattresses

A memory foam mattress supports your entire body weight, making it an excellent choice for anyone who is overweight. Memory foam beds contain viscoelastic foam that responds to temperature and has the ability to mould to the shape of your head, neck or torso. Memory foam mattresses contain layers of memory foam and support foam or springs.

Memory foam utilises your own body heat to mould and soften into your unique shape. This provides exceptional support and comfort and after long pressure is taken off, memory foam tends to return to its original ideal sleeping position and gradually remember your body shape and optimum sleeping position, so the name ‘memory foam’. Memory foam mattresses vary greatly in price and quality, so it is best to do some research to find the mattress that suits you best.

2. Coil spring mattress

This is a very comfortable type of mattress. You can move freely in it and it provides enough support to keep you well-shaped. It is not as firm as memory foam or latex, but it is still comfortable and good for many people. These are great for relieving the aches and pains that you may be feeling. They are firm and supportive, and they allow you to relax and sleep well at night.


3. Latex foam mattresses 

Latex foam mattresses have soared in recent popularity due to their resilience and environmental friendliness. Latex foam rubber trees are grown primarily in South America, making them an eco-friendly choice for mattress producers. But not all latex foam products are eco-friendly.

These are constructed out of open cells of plastic material or foam. Open-cell construction allows air to circulate underneath the structure and therefore creates a cooling and healing effect for the sleeper.

One of the biggest downfalls of this type of mattress is that they tend to be on the pricey side. There is also a higher level of comfort associated with this type of mattress that makes it a popular choice amongst many consumers.

4. Innerspring Mattresses

The innerspring mattress is made from an assortment of different materials including plastics, metals and springs. The main benefit of these types of mattresses is that they offer firmness that is consistent.

Many consumers find that having a consistent feel in their bed is very important for them to get a good sleep. It is important that the coils within the spring retain the same firmness throughout the sleeping process.

On average, around 80% of all homes use innerspring mattresses today. In most cases, innerspring mattresses tend to be less expensive than memory foam, latex, and hybrid alternatives. One of the advantages of this type of mattress is that the coils can be individually adjusted.


5. Air mattresses

Air mattresses provide a great alternative to the hard ground of regular beds and are especially popular in campgrounds, parks and in camping areas where people like the convenience of being able to sleep directly on the ground. An air mattress is simply an inflated sleeping pad or an air-filled mattress that can be deflated.

These are available in various sizes from the smallest crib size to the largest available in the retail market today.

In addition, these types of mattresses offer greater flexibility in terms of design. They are also better suited for people who have back problems or are overweight.
