Latex Mattresses vs. Spring Coil Mattresses

San Diego mattress stores - latex or spring coilHave you already been on a tour around San Diego mattress stores? Whether you are scrounging information up to make a good shopping decision or whether you are simply interested to know the difference for some future consideration, read on. Here are the most important points.

The basics

First off, you should be aware that both latex and spring coil mattresses come in numerous varieties. Not all latex mattresses are created equal, and the same goes for innerspring ones. You can find both in top-quality and cheap varieties.

Latex mattresses are best when labelled as all-natural. Otherwise, you can come across synthetic latex mattresses and “natural” mattresses infused with synthetic latex, memory foam and other chemicals. An all-natural latex mattress is a best guarantee for a healthy sleep, with zero off-gassing and unwanted allergens. Depending on the production process, different firmness levels can be achieved.

Spring coil mattresses are the familiar, traditional mattresses. The technology has advanced in leaps and bounds across decades, so now there are top tier varieties like pocketed spring coil mattresses. Mattresses with innerspring contain foam, memory foam or even latex, such as hybrid latex mattresses. Buyers should be careful about the materials that go into the composition of innerspring mattresses – they often contain gassy or unhealthy substances like formaldehyde. Ask whether the manufacturer whether any harmful substances were used.

Comfort and support

If you don’t have any health issues, a quality, well-kept innerspring mattress can be a very good choice for you. Mattress Makers use only 1.8lb density foam in our hand-made innerspring mattresses, which makes for better support and longevity. However, if you are in the market with specific requirements, you could be better off with a pocketed spring coil, hybrid latex or all-natural latex.

Pocketed coil mattresses are great if your partner is a restless sleeper. The reduced motion transfer means your sleep is unlikely to be interrupted if your partner gets up a lot in the night, rolls around or if your bed gets silently invaded at night by your kids or pets.

A latex mattress can be customizable, with two sides of the bed made to fit different comfort preferences. You can’t beat that. A latex mattress also has reduced motion transfer. For those who suffer from back issues or joint problems, latex is unrivaled for its lack of pressure points.

Longevity

Depending on the quality of materials and manufacturing technology, spring coil mattress can last up to around 10 years. If you turn them regularly, they can provide you comfort with minimum sinking and sagging throughout that time.

Latex mattresses can come with a 20-year warranty. In any case, they are market champions when durability is concerned.

Health and sustainability

Health can be an issue with spring coil mattresses if you don’t pay attention to their certificates. Mattress Makers use only CertiPUR-US high-density foam in our spring coil mattresses, to ensure that your sleep is healthy.

Natural latex mattresses are produced in a superior way. Rubber trees are fertilized with organic, pesticide-free products, and rubber trees are replanted. Latex mattresses made by Mattress Makers are certified by Oeko-Tex and Global Organic Latex Standard.

The takeaway is: whereas natural organic latex mattresses outshine all other mattresses as far as health and sustainability go, you can also get innerspring mattresses that adhere to very high health standards.

What’s the final take?

Innerspring mattresses will go easier on your budget, if out-of-pocket expenses are an issue for you at the moment. Even though they are more budget-friendly, you should be careful to get a high-quality spring coil mattress, to get the best value for money.

Latex mattresses are the best and longest-lasting investment in the quality of your sleep. Even though they are on the higher end of the price range, not all premium quality latex mattresses will break your bank.
