Know Your Options when Buying a New Mattress

The Difference Between Foam and Spring MattressesIf you’re in the market for a brand new mattress, the options can sometimes seem overwhelming. Deciphering the pros and cons is the first place to start. With everything to consider from the price to longevity, knowing the basic facts can help you make a sound choice between a foam mattress or spring mattress. Here are just a few things to think about before you make a decision to buy your next mattress.

Choose the Mattress that Suits Your Support Needs

When you lay down on your bed at night, do you want instant support? Most people do. With a spring mattress, the springs support the entire mattress and provide instant support. With memory foam mattresses, it can sometimes take a few minutes for the foam to conform to your exact body type and positioning. Once the foam has conformed to your body however, you will feel full-body support.

Pressure Point Differences with Mattresses

With spring mattresses, the metal springs can cause pressure points to form on your back and legs. If you’re sensitive, these points may cause some discomfort, while other people find that the support causes a steadier and stabilizing night’s sleep. If you prefer that your body weight finds the proper support for you, a memory foam mattress may be the better option for you. The foam accommodates to your weight and your body position when laying down. If you wish to put more weight on one side of your body as opposed to the other, a foam custom mattress will accommodate the change.

A Mattress for Every Budget

Spring mattresses can be very affordable and come in a variety of types and sizes, making them an affordable bedding option. Foam mattresses can cost more and can range from a basic model to plush pillow top models with hypoallergenic mattress covers. Foam tends to last longer than a spring, but there are different models in various price ranges with longer warranties. A custom mattress company will help you choose the mattress that fits your lifestyle and your budget.
