Jun 20th 2022

Mattresses play an important role in the quality of sleep you get and can even impact your health. We all know our whole day can be affected if sleep is interrupted. To get a good night's rest, you have to have a high-quality mattress. There are many different types of mattresses, and it is important to do your research and understand the types and benefits before choosing one.

If a good night's sleep is what you need, it may be time to upgrade your mattress. Let's walk through the different types of mattresses and their benefits.

Innerspring Mattress

Innerspring mattresses are made with steel springs and coils and layers of cushion to support the body and for added comfort. There are various types of innerspring mattresses to choose from,

  • • continuous coil construction,
  • • individually wrapped coils,
  • • gel-infused mattresses,
  • • and pillow tops.

These mattresses are popular because they are typically less expensive than other mattresses.

Benefits of an Innerspring Mattress

Purchasing an innerspring mattress may yield many benefits.

Good Ventilation

If you are a hot sleeper, then innerspring mattresses are good. The coils in the mattress promote ventilation within the mattress, keeping the bed cool. Unlike foam mattresses, they don't trap body heat and make you feel uncomfortable.

Bouncy Surface

Innerspring mattresses are made of springs and are bouncy. These mattresses use hundreds of metal springs to provide underlying support. This design makes it easy to transition from one sleeping position to another and makes getting in and out of bed easier.

Firm Bed

Compared to other mattresses, innerspring mattresses give you a firmer sleeping surface. They offer solid support while still feeling bouncy. They are ideal for people who need help rolling over due to an ailment or other issues.

Weight Bearing and Posture

Innerspring mattresses are a great choice for stomach sleepers and can distribute weight because the innerspring coils aid in maintaining proper alignment of the spine. Thus, giving better support and a more comfortable sleeping position.

There are many spring variations, either single or pocketed coils, and over the years, various foams, fibers, and even extra layers of springs have evolved to give the best comfort level. While coil gauge, count, and shape can be different, they are made from tried-and-true technology that continues to be the most common and easy to purchase.

Memory Foam Mattress

Memory foam mattresses are among the most popular mattresses because they offer great stability, support, temperature control, and breathability. Memory foam takes the shape of your body when sleeping, fitting the contours, often relieving stress in different areas. A memory foam mattress will spring back to its original shape once you get up and are popular amongst people who suffer from back and joint pain.

Benefits of a Memory Foam Mattress

Offer Body Hugging Comfort

Memory foam mattresses take the shape of your body as you sleep on them. They are highly temperature-sensitive and react to your body heat and weight.

Great for all Sleeping Position

Since memory foam takes up your body's shape, these mattresses can be used for all sleeping positions. Stomach, back, and side sleepers will notice their spine in perfect alignment when they sleep on memory mattresses.

Helpful for Back and Neck Pain

Since the foam promotes a neutral spine alignment, these mattresses let you sleep in a supportive and comfortable position. Sleeping in comfortable positions reduces back and neck pain over time.

Good for Pressure Relief

Most firm mattresses can lead to painful pressure points in different body parts. Memory foam mattresses uniformly disperse body weight, eliminating unnecessary pressure on only specific body parts.

Limited Motion Transfer

This is another advantage of memory foam mattresses. They can absorb energy and minimize movement. As a result, they are a great choice for couples.

Hybrid Mattress

Hybrid mattresses combine memory foam and an innerspring system that offers support and comfort. Hybrid mattresses are ideal for anyone who likes a giving mattress with the support of a steel coil innerspring system.

Value for Money

Hybrid mattresses are valuable investments, and you get both quality and durability when you invest in these mattresses. Plus, you can choose from a combination of materials to create a customized mattress based on your needs.

Hybrid mattresses are known for being versatile. There is a limit to what a traditional memory foam or innerspring coil mattress can do. But when you combine both these materials, you can experience the positives of both. You can choose pocket coil springs or classic innerspring for the core and choose memory foam, latex foam, or polyfoam for the top comfort layers. You can even add quilted cushioning or a pillow top for additional comfort on the top layer.

Help with Pain Relief
