Different Types of Mattresses (Ultimate Mattress Buying Guide)

With so many manufacturers claiming to have the "best" mattress, deciding where to begin your search for a new mattress can be difficult. Hence, we have put up an ultimate mattress buying guide to help you select the best suitable mattress for you.

In this article, we will walk you through all the different types of mattresses to consider when you plan to buy a new one. Besides, consider additional factors when changing your mattresses, such as the average life span, mattress sizes, and other mattress costs.

Understanding Different Types of Mattresses

The standard approach is to replace your bed mattress every 7-10 years. A mattress loses its shape because of regular use and no longer gives a surface for restful sleep. There is an unlimited amount of research on different mattress materials and what they are excellent for. However, we have simplified what you need to know about the most popular mattresses available, including memory foam, spring, latex, and hybrid.

        Hybrid Mattresses

          A hybrid mattress is made up of memory foam & springs. Hybrids provide an excellent blend of support & pressure reduction. With more motion-absorbing layers, it will improve motion transfer on a hybrid. Other materials & compositions may also be used (like latex & memory foam).

          A hybrid mattress combines the bounce and cradled properties of springs with the contouring & cushioning properties of the foam. Traditional spring mattresses might be rigid and lack motion isolation. Hybrid mattresses can also be quite heavy, making transportation & handling difficult.

          How to choose the mattress sizes?

          The best mattress size for you determines by two crucial factors: who will sleep on it and where you will place it.

          Who is Sleeping on the Bed, and where will it be placed?

          It may be related to the size of the individuals sleeping on it. It is also a matter of personal preference.

          A queen-size bed mattress is the most popular for couples because it fits nicely in most bedrooms. A king mattress is ideal for restless sleepers who require enough space. But the king-size mattresses are more challenging to set up due to their size and weight.

          Note:  Mattresses differ in height; we only provide width and length as standard specifications.
