Choosing the Best Mattress – Inner Spring or Memory Foam
We spend roughly one third of our entire lives sleeping. Despite the fact so much of our time is spent in our beds, very few of us give much consideration to the mattress we have under us. We probably spend more time choosing a new car or a holiday. If there is a single piece of furniture which you are considering replacing, perhaps starting with your mattress would be the wisest move. There are numerous types of mattresses available. We are going to take a look at two. The Inner spring mattress and memory foam mattress are the two most common. And here we will weigh up the pro’s and con’s of each.
Inner Spring Mattresses
Coil spring mattresses offer a low cost yet quality alternative to memory foam matresses. Some of you may recall unpleasant memories of sleeping on an uncomfortable coil spring mattress with springs digging into ones back. However, this is likely the result of inferior and cheaply produced mattresses rather than the actual coil spring system which is very well designed. Choosing a quality mattress should put your mind at ease.
Memory foam mattresses are sensitive to temperatures. This is to allow the mattress bend and shape in unison with a person’s body heat. However, this also may result in your finding the memory foam mattress too hot. If you prefer a cooler sleep perhaps a spring mattress is a better choice. For those who are overweight, a spring mattress offers firmer support making it easier for getting in and out of bed.
HANLEY’S FURNITURE RECOMMENDS: Aloe Vera Mattress
The Aloe Vera mattress from Dura beds has a traditional spring unit with a generous topping of luxury fillings. Upholstered in advanced Aloe Vera fabric, this offers a cool, soft and restful nights sleep.
Memory Foam Mattresses
The memory foam mattress is proving more and more popular due to numerous benefits. Originally designed by NASA, the design has come along way from its origins to feature in medical products and now in bedding. Nowadays we can find memory foam in blankets, pillows and mattresses. Due to it’s body friendly support, memory foam is the mattress of choice for those suffering with joint pain or back problems. As the support is evenly distributed there is less likelihood you will toss and turn leading to a better nights sleep for not just you, but your partner.
The mattress is also long lasting. Memory foams are more durable than mattresses lasting up to a dozen years longer. Memory foam mattresses are thus more expensive than spring mattresses however the extra lifespan makes this a wise investment.
