How to Choose a Mattress

Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the best ways to maintain and improve your health. When you settle in at night, the mattress you’re sleeping on is a huge factor in your ability to sleep well. It’s important that you don’t overlook the importance of your mattress and choose one that provides the comfort and support you need. A new mattress can be a sizable investment, but taking this step can unlock your ability to sleep better. Allow Home Furniture Plus Bedding serving East Texas and Louisiana to tell you how to choose a mattress.

Different Mattress Types
When choosing a new mattress, you’ll need to determine the type of mattress that will provide you with the best night’s sleep. There are five different types of mattresses: foam, innerspring, hybrid, latex, or airbed. Knowing the basics about each of these types can serve as a foundation upon which you can continue your search for the best mattress.

Foam: Foam mattresses are made entirely of foam with no coils. They provide above-average contouring to the body, pressure relief, and motion isolation, making them a good fit for side sleepers and couples.

Innerspring: An innerspring mattress has a coil-based support system and few other layers. While the coils offer some support, innersprings often lack in pressure relief.

Hybrid: Hybrids have two central elements: an innerspring support core and a substantial foam comfort system. The comfort layers can include foam or latex, and sometimes will even include a shorter layer of coils (called micro-coils).

Latex: When all of the layers of a mattress are made with latex rubber, some call it an all-latex or true-latex mattress. These offer top-notch bounce and durability with moderate contouring.

Airbed: Airbeds are built with an air chamber as their support core. A pump — controlled by a smartphone or remote — is built into the mattress to add or remove air with the push of a button, giving sleepers the utmost in firmness flexibility.

Different Mattress Sizes
Of course, size matters when it comes to your new mattress. The most common mattress sizes are king, queen, full, twin, and twin XL. Choosing your mattress size is dependent on the size of your room and exactly how much room you want to stretch out! Home Furniture Plus Bedding has a wide range of sizes to choose from, and you’re sure to find one that fits your needs.
