Explained - The different types of mattress

Are you dreaming of getting the perfect night’s sleep? Then read on for our experts’ guide to the different types of mattress and ensure you choose the perfect one to help you drift off into the land of nod.

The affordable open coil mattress

Often the most cost-effective type of mattress available, an open coil mattress is made from single springs attached to one another by a continuous wire. As they are often quite firm, open coil mattresses can be a popular choice for people who suffer from back pain. However, due to the interconnected spring system, you are more likely to be disturbed by the movement of another than with other types of mattress and, as the springs tends to wear out over time, the mattress is likely to eventually dip in the middle.

The cool pocket spring mattress

Pocket sprung mattresses are among our most popular option here at Carpet Barn, experts in supplying high quality mattresses. Like open coil, pocket sprung mattresses have individual springs, but the key difference is that they are sewn into individual fabric pockets, hence the name. While they don’t mould to your shape the way memory foam mattress do, pocket sprung mattresses can offer a great level of support due to the independent springs. They can also be much cooler than memory foam, perfect if you find yourself a little too toasty at night.

Memory foam mattresses offer great support

Memory foam mattresses are topped with a layer of special viscoelastic material that moulds to the shape of your body rather than forcing you to fit to it, offering a fantastic level of support and comfort. Memory foam mattresses are a particularly popular choice for those with back pain or sensitive areas that need extra support when lying down. Another great benefit of memory foam is that the material absorbs movement, so you won’t be disturbed by your partner rolling around at night.
