Good sleep is one of the most important factors for the good quality of life and our overall health. And one of the most important factors when it comes to getting a proper night’s rest is a high quality, and more importantly, an adequate mattress.

That’s why it is crucial to understand what it is that you really need or lack to actually sleep well. You might buy the highest quality most expensive mattress and still have the same old sleeping problems, be it general insomnia, back pain or any other inconvenience you might be experiencing during and after your sleep.

So here is a list of different types of mattresses and their particularities which might help you choose correctly and finally get some proper rest during the night, according to experts at Mattress Makers.


If you are more of a “traditional” sleeper who values good mattress support, cooling, strong edge support, and bounce, then the standard coil mattress is an excellent choice.

I say “standard” as this type of mattress is the most common and the most popular one. It consists of the so-called innersprings, that is, steel coils, set in one or more layers which provide great comfort and support.

Of course, as with everything else, with time and technology advance, there are more and more different types of coils, which come in different materials, numbers and layers all designed to provide a specific effect during your sleep.

Adjustable Base

Just as the name suggests, these mattresses enable you to adjust the elevation to suit your sleeping style.

The big advantage of adjustable base mattresses is that they enable you to pick your optimal sleeping position more than any other type of mattress.

However, for most people who prefer sleeping flat, this is not a necessary feature and their money might be better spent on a better grade regular mattress.

Memory Foam

If you are the type of sleeper who values good support, contour, body shaping, and pressure relief, then memory foam mattress is the right choice for you.

As you have guessed, it is completely made of memory foam.

Even though memory foam mattresses do have a reputation of the so-called “sleeping hot”, with the advance of new technologies different types of memory foams have been creating, so there are also the ones with cooling effects.

It’s quite likely you will find the one suitable for you, as long as it provides a firm hug, pressure relief, and great support.


If you like foam mattresses, but prefer cooling to heating effect, and aren’t really a fan of the pronounced hug offered by the memory foam, then you should opt for a latex mattress.

This type offers comfort, cooling, good bounce, and responsiveness. If all these things are important for your good night’s sleep, then you should definitely get a mattress made of latex foam.

Also, even if the foam is not a crucial element in your choice, cooling, and comfort, loose hug, but good responsiveness and bounce are all good reasons to choose latex as your mattress material.


Are you day-dreaming about sleeping on a cloud at night?

Well, if this is the case, then a pillow-top mattress is perfect for you. If you have trouble sleeping on mattresses that are too hard and prefer a softer, more cushion-like support, you should get this type of mattress which basically has a layer of very soft material on top.

The material is either stuffed or sewn into the mattress cover. Again, there are different types of pillow-top mattresses and they all fall under different categories, some of which we have already mentioned: coil, memory foam, latex, hybrid, and other.

All you need to do is choose the right kind of your sleeping cloud and enjoy the softness and comfort which will give you a completely different sleeping experience.
