A mattress is a huge investment that should not be taken lightly. There really isn’t an item in your home that you use more regularly than your mattress so it’s important to find the best one for you. This can take time, research, and testing. Here is some information to help you find your best mattress.

Innerspring Mattresses

These mattress are definitely the most popular choice around the country. Each spring is individually encased and sealed within the mattress so you will not feel them and there is no chance of a spring popping out. You can purchase an innerspring mattress at basically any price point or budget. When it comes to mattresses however, the saying “you get what you pay for” rings true. So you should spend as much as your budget will allow in order to receive the best quality.

The higher quality innerspring mattresses last much longer and also are more supportive. Cheaper innerspring mattresses tend to not hold their shape well, not be supportive, and not last as long. Make sure you choose a bed frame that is the proper size for your mattress, or vice versa. If you want to add some softness to your mattress then test out a mattress with a pillow top. A pillow top mattress adds a lot of comfort to your bed.

Memory Foam Mattresses

Traditional memory foam is the most popular type of foam, and you’ll have the most mattresses to choose from if you opt for this type. The average price of a memory foam mattress is between $1500 and $2000. It reacts to your body heat, forming to your unique shape to reduce pressure points and give you a restful sleep. However, if you tend to get uncomfortably hot while you sleep, you’ll want to choose a gel memory foam mattress. Gel memory foam is infused with gel beads, which allows for better airflow without losing any of the comfort of traditional memory foam.

If you prefer a more natural material, you’ll want to choose a latex memory foam mattress. As long you don’t have a latex allergy, you’ll appreciate that this is a eco-friendly choice. Memory foam was originally created by NASA scientists. If a memory foam mattress isn’t in your budget then you might want to check out a memory foam mattress topper. It fits over your existing mattress and adds a layer of memory foam for comfort.

Adjustable Beds

Adjustable bed bases have become quite popular recently, due to wider availability online and more affordable options than ever before. This type of bed offers owners the ability to adjust their position with simple controls and can be helpful for a wide range of people. Though previously associated with hospitals, modern adjustable beds blend seamlessly into home decor and offer a range of benefits for perfectly healthy people as well. These bases range in price from $3000 and up so they do cost a pretty penny.

In addition to the health benefits mentioned, an adjustable base also offers creature comforts. Most people enjoy reading or watching TV while in bed and use a variety of pillows to prop themselves into an upright position, or experience uncomfortable strain on their back and arms. An adjustable bed eliminates this hassle by allowing the user to position themselves upright. You can also slip into a lounger position with knees slightly elevated. More upgraded models often come with additional functions like massage, alarms, and even anti-snore controls. The massage is a vibration-based sensation that helps relax muscles and encourage circulation. Other types of features vary by model, but add to the comfort and luxury of your bedroom.
