Different Mattress Types

by Jason Mason

If you are going to be looking for a new mattress, then you should learn more about what's out there. You will find that there are many types of mattresses available and that each type has plenty of advantages. So, all you need to do is to determine which of the mattresses have the features that you like the most. Here are some of the different types of mattresses: 

Innerspring mattresses

This type of mattress features a coil support system and additional layers. The coils are there to offer support. The innerspring mattress has more bounce to it than some of the other types of mattresses. There are those who don't like the bounce of the mattress and others who really like it. This type of mattress tends to be more affordable than many others. If you go with an innerspring mattress, then you will have bought a mattress with just the right amount of bounce and this will help you to sleep much more comfortably. Another thing to know about the innerspring mattresses is that they are often preferred by children.

Foam mattresses

The foam mattresses are made of foam. The foam mattresses don't have any coils inside of them. They are designed to have a surface that contours to a person's body, and they are great for pressure relief. The fact that they are easy on pressure points makes them good for people who have certain conditions, such as fibromyalgia, where many types of surfaces can be painful. This type of mattress also has very little movement to it, and this is why people with partners who move a lot during the night tend to like them. 

Hybrid mattresses 

These mattresses offer a design that combines the coil system with the foam in order to offer people the best of both worlds. These mattresses have some movement to them, but they also offer that nice body contouring that so many people appreciate. These mattresses feature styles with different amounts of bounce and different amounts of contouring. This allows people to find the exact model that is going to work out the best for them. 


When you bring home the best mattress for you and your partner, you may find that sleeping comes much easier for you than it has in the past. Also, you might finally be able to enjoy a full night's sleep without being woken each time your partner moves around.
