Flippable Mattresses: Which Side to Sleep On and When to Flip It

Using a double-sided mattress correctly is crucial for ensuring that you get quality sleep every night. However, not many buyers consider this factor before actually purchasing a mattress, but you should definitely keep it in mind. 

You also need to know all the pros of buying a double-sided mattress, be familiar with the durability of a double-sided mattress, and definitely research who sells the best double-sided mattresses, as there are many double-sided mattress brands in San Diego. We know it’s a lot, don’t worry, we’ll help you through it.

Can you sleep on both sides of a mattress?Does flipping a mattress help

Yes, you can definitely sleep on both sides of a mattress. It might sound strange, but mattresses are usually quite uniform in their design and it makes little difference which side of a mattress you choose to sleep on.

That being said, although every mattress can be flipped, there are special mattresses called double-sided mattresses that are designed specifically for that purpose. They are designed in such a way that each side is different, depending on the sleeping preferences of the person using it, and that it can be flipped according to these needs.

These mattresses are rare when compared to regular, “one-sided” mattresses, but do offer a level of customizability and convenience rarely seen in regular mattresses. If you want a true flippable experience, a double-sided mattress is definitely the way to go.

Does flipping a mattress help?

There are many ways in which regularly flipping a mattress helps your sleeping habits, and we’re going to explore the two main ways in which turning your mattress enhances your sleep experience.

Does flipping a mattress help it last longer?

Yes, it definitely does, even according to the Stanford Center for Sleep Medicine. Not turning your mattress on a regular basis can cause lumps and unevenness across its surface, which can significantly shorten its lifespan.

If you want to avoid such a thing and ensure that your mattress lasts as long as possible, you should develop a habit of flipping your mattress at regular intervals. Mattresses can last a long time, but they will last even longer if you care for them.

Does flipping a mattress help me sleep better?

Flipping a regular mattress can help you sleep better because turning it will decrease the odds of your mattress developing lumps, which will, in turn, improve your sleep. Also, by turning your mattress regularly, you can sure that your sleeping surface is used evenly, retaining the perfect sleeping conditions.

As for double-sided mattresses, flipping them can also help you sleep better, but not in the same way as turning a regular mattress will. When you turn a double-sided mattress, the sleeping surface on the other side is usually different in terms of firmness and sometimes even material.

So, when you flip it, you get a completely different sleeping surface and, depending on your current needs or medical conditions, you can ensure greater sleep quality. For example, if your back hurts for some reason, flip your mattress to the firm side in order to get more support. 

Should a mattress be turnedShould a mattress be turned?

A mattress, any mattress, should definitely be turned. If you own a regular mattress, turning it will ensure it lasts a lot longer, decrease any unwanted effects on your health, and ensure that you retain a perfect sleeping surface for a longer period of time.

Turning a double-sided mattress is also advisable for the reasons given above, but also because these mattresses often offer two completely different surfaces. By changing the surface according to your current needs, you make sure that you get the best night’s sleep you can!
