PH Gammons - Mattresses

Which Mattress is Right For You?

When shopping for a new bed, you will need to make sure that you choose the right mattress. Mattresses are more than just something to sleep on. Good quality mattresses are important for your overall health as well as for getting a sound night’s sleep. Your mattress should deliver comfort as well as guard against health issues such as back pain from developing. Many beds feature their own unique mattress design, so it is helpful to look at the various choices available. Listed below are the different types of mattress you can find when you shop at our bed shop.

Children’s mattresses

A good night’s sleep is important for the development and long term health of both children and teens. Poor sleep can lead to problems involving brain function as well as emotional and physical wellbeing. A good children’s mattress should be firm enough to support your child’s body as well as encourage healthy sleeping positions. Make sure to also consider beds that are antibacterial with a breathable mattress cover, as well as being free of any harmful interior components.

Memory/latex mattresses

A memory foam mattress is designed to conform to the shape of your body. The flexible polyurethane material will maintain the impression of your body even after you get up. This adds to the comfort and support provided to beds and is ideal for those with joint or back pain. Latex, by contrast, returns the mattress to its original shape quickly, and is often lighter and bouncier than memory foam. A latex mattress can hold more air preventing the bed from getting too hot at night. They are also firmer and more eco friendly than other types of mattresses.

Everyday open coil mattresses

One of the most common types of mattress, these beds consist of an interconnected spring system. The thickness of the springs determines its gauge: the lower the gauge, the firmer the mattress. A well-made open coil mattress will have good support and orthopaedic qualities, especially the low gauge ones. In addition, this type of mattress is lighter and easier to turn than others.

Full foam mattresses

A full foam mattress combines various types of foam to evenly distribute body weight across its surface. This allows it to relieve pressure as well as provide more support as you sleep. A full foam mattress can also include different types of foam to increase firmness and durability according to your needs.
