How to Choose the Right Mattress Type


The right mattress can change the way you sleep, but how do you pick?

If you’re looking around for a mattress, you may have noticed there are a lot of options out there. It can also seem somewhat confusing. At Mattress Peddlers, we want to make the experience of buying a new bed just as comfortable as the one you end up purchasing. That’s why it’s important to understand the differences in types of mattresses and which one is suitable for you.


Hybrid mattresses are built from a combination of latex, memory, polyurethane foams, coils, and even other materials. They’re usually designed to maximize certain benefits. One such example is a combination of latex and memory foam, which allows for great bounce, cooling, and responsiveness via the latex, but the memory foam can still offer pressure relief and support. Hybrid beds are best for those who want the best of all worlds and are a very good choice for most sleepers.

Memory Foam

By now, you’ve almost definitely heard of memory foam. A memory foam bed can offer amazing support, pressure relief, and body contouring. In the past, memory foam mattresses were plagued by poor temperature control and ended up being too hot. However, nowadays most memory foams are designed with cooling in mind. These are great for anyone with back pain or wants something that will contour specifically to them.


Coils have traditionally been the most popular and widely used bed types. They consist of one or more layers of spring coils, typically made out of steel, that provide the support and comfort. The more coils, the better this kind of mattress will feel. These are really ideal for those of us who are used to the traditional feel of a coil mattress.
