Understanding Specialty Mattresses

Getting a good night’s sleep is essential for maintaining good overall physical, mental, and emotional health, and finding the right mattress is by far the best way to ensure a good night’s sleep. Unfortunately, the process of finding the mattress that will best fit readers’ unique needs has become more complicated than ever given the proliferation of different mattresses and mattress technologies available today. Read on to find a few helpful tips on how to get started.

Get a Feel for Specialty Mattresses

Memory foam mattresses top the charts when it comes to user satisfaction, but there are also a variety of other specialty mattresses that have become quite popular in recent years. These include innerspring mattresses, latex mattresses, waterbeds, and air mattresses.

Choosing a Memory Foam Mattress

When choosing a memory foam mattress, be sure to compare different types of foam, foam amount, and density. Keep in mind, though, that some memory foam mattresses do have a tendency to retain heat and be sure to look for information regarding what steps the manufacturer has taken to alleviate this problem.

Choosing an Innerspring Mattress

Those looking to purchase new innerspring mattresses should note that there have been some major improvements to these popular mattress types over the years, but they still tend to transfer more motion and to offer only limited support. Readers may want to look into hybrid mattresses that feature both innerspring and memory foam technologies.

Choosing a latex Mattresses

There are only a few companies currently producing natural latex mattresses, but those that are available do tend to get very high reviews from customers. When purchasing a latex mattress, be sure to look for reviews of the particular model, not the company that produces it, as some extremely popular mattress manufacturers have not yet developed the right technologies for producing comfortable natural latex alternatives to their innerspring and memory foam mattresses.

Choosing a Waterbed

Waterbeds are hypoallergenic and quite durable, so while they’re not ideal for everyone, they do deserve a place on this list. One of the most important distinctions to make when looking into waterbeds is to determine whether the bed is softside or hardside. Softside waterbeds function and look like normal mattresses, while hardside beds come with hardwood frames.
