The Great Mattress Debate: Foam, Spring or Latex?
Imagine it. A brand new mattress made up with fresh, soft cotton sheets and beautiful bed linen. It’s an inviting image - but imagining exactly what kind of mattress is underneath the mattress topper is a bit harder to do.
The Mattress Candidates
Memory foam mattresses are made from a specially developed material that moulds to the shape of your body when you lie down on the linen, evenly distributing your body weight. When you get up, the mattress then returns to its original shape.
Spring mattresses have an arrangement of springs beneath a fabric cover, which cushions and supports your body weight when you lay down upon it. Latex mattresses use differing densities of latex material to create a supporting structure for your body without using springs.
Each of these mattresses are compatible with everyday sheet sets – the differences are just in the support methods.
In this day and age, there are scores of mattress options for you to choose from, from memory foam and spring mattresses to latex, each promising the best night’s sleep you’ve ever had. Manchester Madness stocks accessories for mattress', but which one is right for your bedroom?
So, Which Mattress Type Is The Best?
Mattress manufacturers will all say one is better than the other, offers more support, less partner disturbance and a better night’s sleep. But until you lie down on it, you won't know. Mattresses are a very personal choice because everybody is different and has their own needs.
So while it’s helpful to understand the differences between memory foam, spring and latex mattresses, ultimately your body will make the decision.
Once you’ve made your decision, it’s vital that you dress the mattress in the best sheets you can get a hold of. A good night’s sleep beneath a luxurious linen set is one of life’s great joys – don’t miss it!
