Which Kind of Mattress is Right for You?

Sometimes it’s not easy to get a good night’s’ rest. Stress, pain, and other ailments can lead to lack of sleep. Also, an old and/or uncomfortable mattress may be stopping you from getting good sleep. But with so many different kind of mattresses out today, what kind is the best for you?

There’s no such thing as a one size fits all bed. Only you are going to know what type of mattress feels good to your body. There are beds that are firm. Some beds are soft. And some have foam and some have springs. So what’s the real difference between them all? Let’s figure it out.

Here we are going to discuss 3 styles of beds:


Traditional spring (Innerspring) mattresses have been around over 100 years. These beds are the most popular style of mattress due to their affordability and support to a variety of sleepers. The basic design of an innerspring mattress is metal springs covered by padding and materials. Another style of innerspring mattress is a pocket coil. Pocket coils are springs wrapped individually in a fabric sleeve. This allows them to react to pressure independently instead of all together, which minimizes movement and allows for a more buoyant feel. There are some drawbacks to an innerspring mattress. They do have a tendency to sag, short lifespan, noisiness, and lack of motion isolation. Browse our Spring mattresses here


A hybrid mattress combines a pocketed coil support system with one or more types of foam, such as polyurethane, memory (viscoelastic) or latex, as well as foams that contain gel or other materials. If you are thinking about switching from an innerspring to a memory foam, this style of mattress would be something more inbetween. Browse our hybrid models here

Memory Foam

If you enjoy the feeling of sinking into your bed and being enveloped and cradled to sleep, then a memory foam mattress may be just what you’re in the market for. These products are known for their ease in contouring to the body and slow restoration to original form when pressure is released. As the memory foam pushes down and fits around your body, it can ease pressure points and aching joints. Browse our memory foam beds here

As far as comfort level of the mattress, these three mattress styles come in different comfort levels such as soft, medium and firm.
