1. Is your mattress getting too old?

In order to ensure you’re getting the best night’s sleep possible, make sure your mattress isn’t older than 8 years. Some mattresses may have a longer lifespan, and others shorter. Be sure to you understand which type of mattress you have and if it’s time to consider a new one.

2. What’s your preferred sleeping position?

Do you like sleeping on your back with your head elevated? Do you prefer to sleep on your side and dislike the feel of a mattress that contours to your body? Don’t settle for the wrong mattress! Your sleeping preferences should dictate the type of bed you sleep in. Choosing a mattress with the right firmness and capabilities can make a world of difference, and varies depending on your preferred sleeping position.

3. What mattress type feels the best to you?

Ultimately, the type of mattress you choose comes down to comfort. Do you prefer a softer mattress or one that is more firm? Do you prefer one that contours or one that cools? Both? Luckily, there are several varieties of mattress to choose from, ensuring you’ll find the right fit for you. The six types include: pillowtop, latex, adjustable, hybrids, and memory foam.

Pillowtop mattresses can fall into several different categories, including hybrid, coil, etc. These types of mattresses typically have a layer of material in the cover in order to create more cushion on the top.

This Mattress Type is Great for:
Those who love the feel of a cloud-like mattress. The extra layer of cushion on the top, as the name suggests, offers a softer type of support for the sleeper.

At the Mattress Center at American Home, you can find the luxurious Stearns & Foster line of pillowtop mattresses, as well as the Sealy Posturepedic collection.

Also known as an innerspring mattress, coil mattresses are among the most common mattresses in households today. Consisting of one or more layers of spring coils, the support in these mattresses stems from the pocketed and support coils. For those who prefer coil mattresses but want extra comfort, generally the more amount of coils there are, the more support there is.

This Mattress Type is Great for:
For those who love the bounce and classic feel of a coil mattress. These bouncy mattresses offer a good amount of cooling and strong edges.

Our Selection of Coil Mattresses: The Mattress Center at American Home carries the Sealy Response and Stearns & Foster tight top collections.

As the moniker suggests, memory foam mattresses provide support strictly through the use of memory foam. While these types of mattresses are known for their superior level of pressure relief and contouring, this has been known to cause the “sleeping hot” issue. However, the technology of memory foam has been rapidly improving, and are being designed with better cooling properties and newer materials.

This Mattress Type is Great for:
Those who want a lot of support and pressure relief. If you enjoy the feel of a mattress conforming to your body shape and support that comes with it, memory foam is for you. It’s important to note that there are a lot of mattresses that claim to be “memory foam” but are in fact not.

Hybrid mattresses utilize the benefits of several different types of materials in order to create a specific sleeping experience. Built using coils, polyurethane, foam, latex, or another number of materials, hybrid mattresses cater to certain sleeping needs. For instance, a latex and memory foam hybrid will provide the desirable contour of the memory foam, while offering the cooling properties of the latex.

This Mattress Type is Great for: A majority of sleepers. Those who are looking for a very specific type of sleep love the hybrid mattress. If you’re looking to get the best of both worlds, this is the choice for you.

Our Selection of Hybrid Mattresses: Sealy Posturepedic, Tempur-Pedic Flex, and the Stearns & Foster hybrid collection can all be found at the Mattress Center at American Home!
