SO LETS BEGIN

Different types of MattressesInnerspring MattressHybrid MattressPillow Top MattressAdjustable FoundationGel MattressLatex MattressMemory Foam MattressWaterbed MattressAir Bed Mattress

Innerspring Mattress

An innerspring mattress uses a steel coil support system. Manufacturers offer several different types of spring systems, including units with springs connected into a single unit and individually wrapped pocketed coils. Spring shapes, designs, coil gauge, and number of coils in a mattress can vary. The innerspring is covered by padding or upholstery materials, which can include various foams, fiber, and additional layers of smaller steel springs. Coil count can be more arbitrary, but the idea is that the greater the number of coils, the more points of support and greater distribution, thus the better the bed can contour and support the sleeper.

Pros:There are plenty of innerspring mattresses on the market from which to choose. They range in firmness, the fluffiness of the pillow top, and in price to fit nearly every preference and pocket book.

Cons:There's no direct relationship in most cases between price and comfort, but steering clear of the cheapest innerspring mattress. If there aren't enough springs and cushion to offer you proper support, you'll likely wake up with an aching back.

Hybrid Mattresses

A Hybrid Mattress combines a steel coil support system with one or more types of foam, such as polyurethane foam, memory foam, or latex foam, as well as foams that contain gel or other materials.

Pros:Better at contouring to your body than more plain innerspring mattresses. It has a fairly unique feel that some people really like.

Cons:Hybrids are a little more expensive than other mattresses of a similar overall quality. Youre paying, in part, for the fact that hybrids are the latest fad in mattresses.Everybody seems to be calling their mattress a hybrid these days, so you might have to sift through a few mattresses that arentreallyhybrids to find one that is.

Pillow top Mattress

Pillow top and euro top mattresses are designed for those who want an extra layer of padding on top of the mattress.Both pillow top and euro top mattresses are essentially the same, and many companies use the terms interchangeably which has diluted the differentiation the terms once had.Technically, there is a difference in design; but functionally, the difference is insignificant. Both designs sew an extra layer of padding on top of the mattress to add softness, take the edge off, or fine-tune the comfort of the sleeping surface.

Pros: Pillow-top mattresses have anextra layer of paddingbetween the sleeper and the mattress springs, making it possible for even firm mattresses to feel more soft and comfortable.

Cons: Some people find the soft pillow-top mattress to beextremely hot. Excessive warmth can be particularly problematic when the pillow top is made with memory foam or other dense materials.

Adjustable foundation

These beds are able to bend and elevate at varying angles. Different types of mattresses can be used on an adjustable bed memory foam, latex, or air. An adjustable foundation allows you to bend, elevate or lower various parts of the sleep surface. Many adjustable foundations have dual controls that each partner can use to adjust the sleep surface elevation to meet their individual needs.Most adjustable foundations are powered by an electric motor, but some are manually adjusted.They are designed to look like a conventional foundation when placed in the fully horizontal position.For best results, adjustable foundations should be used with a mattress designed for that purpose.

Pros:For people who have difficulty getting in and out of bed or who like to watch television in bed, Adjustables can make life easier by moving you closer to where you need to be.

Cons:If you suffer fromsleep apnea, sleeping flat can make the condition worse by cutting off airways and causing thetongueto fall into the back of the throat,

Gel Mattress

Gel mattresses use a type of foam that contains gel in the products support system, upholstery layers, or both. The gel is added to the foam using deferent types of technology. The gel foam can offer consumers different comfort, feel and heat dissipation features.

Pros: Gel mattresses have excellent conformation properties and they stay cool.

Cons: Limited consumer and product testing make this a somewhat risky purchase. Also, because gel can shift, the product design needs to include a method to contain or stabilize the gel.

Latex Mattress

Latex mattresses are made from either natural or synthetic rubber, and are known for providing a very firm, bouncy support that is uniform throughout the bed. These type of mattresses use latex foam as the support system, in the upholstery layers, or both. Latex may be made from plant or petroleum-based materials.

Pros:"Quite frankly, I think one of the best materials is latex. These mattresses being very firm and supportive, but also for providing comfort similar to memory foam. Unlike the memory foam mattresses, however, Latex pushes back, ultimately providing more support.

Cons:If you don't like the feel of a firm mattress, latex is probably not the right choice for you.

Memory Foam Mattress

Memory foam mattresses use a high density polyurethane foam as the support system, in the upholstery layer, or both. This foam has properties that allow it to contour closely to the shape of the sleeper. Memory foam mattresses are growing in popularity. They are made of layers of different densities of foam that respond to weight and temperature, and are known for comfort because they contour to the specific shape of your body. Memory foam toppers are also available.

Pros:By molding to the shape of your body as your weight shifts through the night, memory foam reduces pressure points, and relieves pain. Memory foam also absorbs movement, so if you sleep with a partner, you're not likely to be disturbed by his tossing and turning.

Cons:One of the biggest complaints with memory foam mattresses is that because these mattresses are temperature sensitive, softening and molding with your body heat, they can make you feel extremely hot during the night.

Waterbed Mattress

A waterbed mattress is the mattress used in a waterbed. It is a large
