Need a New Mattress? 5 Kinds to Consider, Lincoln, Nebraska

A good night’s sleep is essential for your physical and mental health. During this period, your body will work to balance out key hormones—including those responsible for growth and healing. It helps your mind reset so that, during the day, you can be more focused, cheerful, and productive. However, if your mattress is old and lumpy, it can cause you to wake up feeling achy and unrested. If you’re considering replacing your bed, it is important to choose the right type to suit your unique needs. The guide below looks at some options.

A Guide to Different Mattress Types

1. Innerspring

This option contains a series of metal coils that contract when pressure is applied to them. In general, the more coils there are, the higher the quality of the mattress—since the bed will be able to more precisely support your body and movements. The coils are then covered by a pillowtop or some other form of padding for your comfort. 

Because they are so structured, they are useful for those who have a hard time getting out of bed when the mattress is soft.

2. Memory Foam

Memory foam mattresses are made out of a dense foam as opposed to coils. This foam is very giving, making it ideal for side sleepers or those with chronic pain, which also means it may not be best for those who like firmness. The dense foam also retains heat during the night.

3. Gel

Similar to the last option, gel mattresses have gel injected into the foam. This helps keep the bed cooler, as the gel absorbs heat at a slower rate. It does feel different than memory foam, so go to the store in person before you purchase one to see how you enjoy the give.

4. Latex

5. Hybrid

Perhaps the best of all worlds, hybrid mattresses combine innerspring technology with memory foam layers on top. Sleepers get the support of coils coupled with the cushion of foam. However, they tend to be more expensive. Shop around for your perfect coil-to-foam ratio.
