Do the variations in mattress design produce better mattresses?
Mattress manufacturers make much of how their different designs can help you to get a better night's sleep - but is there really any difference between the support provided by a layered memory foam mattress and a high coil-count pocket-sprung mattress? It's difficult to say, because the concept of comfort and support essentially comes from the customer, not the manufacturer. The mattress that feels perfectly supportive to you may be uncomfortable for your best friend or a family member, depending on how they sleep and where they most need support during the night.
Despite this, mattress design continues to evolve so that manufacturers can increase the range of mattresses they can offer to customers. Such a wide range of mattresses means that it is easier for customers to become confused about which mattress is best for them, which is why you should always try the following when it comes to choosing a new mattress:
• Research - it's true that the sheer quantity of mattresses and designs on the market can be overwhelming. In order to avoid bafflement when you walk into a showroom or visit an online retailer, do a it of research first. At MattressNextDay, for example, you can find lots of useful information about mattresses and beds, which may help to make things a little clearer for you. It's certainly worth finding out about the various mattress designs and construction methods so that you can be more confident when it comes to asking questions.
• Testing - make sure you try out the mattresses you're interested in. There really is no substitute for taking the time to lie out on a few mattresses to see which ones are the most comfortable and supportive. If you buy a mattress without testing it out, you could be letting yourself in for years of uncomfortable sleep.
• Asking - it's OK to ask questions. As mattress retailers, we want you to go away knowing that you've bought the right mattress. If you have any concerns about the mattresses you're looking at or you want to know about the differences between various mattress designs, just ask.
