Memory Foam or Spring Mattress? Which is better for you?

Oct Tue 20 2020

A Good Sleep is a superpower, and to unlock that superpower, you need to go for the right mattress. When it comes to choosing a mattress, people do not really know to differentiate types of mattresses. Because to pick the right kind of mattress, one needs to know about them in detail. To start with, let’s categorize mattresses into two types; Foam Mattresses and Spring Mattresses.

What is a Memory Foam Mattress?


A Memory Foam Mattress comes with comforting layers of polyurethane designed to respond to heat and pressure. A memory foam mattress has sleep-enhancing benefits in the sense that it easily adapts to your body and bounces back to its original shape when weight is removed. This is also why some people find memory foam mattresses better than other spring mattresses.

Only very few mattresses serve every sleep position and a memory foam mattress is one among them. A memory foam mattress is denser than most types of mattresses in the market. A plush surface and the medium firm is the most comforting feature of a memory foam mattress. One of the best kinds of memory foam mattress comes in the orthopaedic - memory foam combination. An orthopaedic memory foam mattress is simply an orthopaedic mattress that is made of viscoelastic foam. There is an equal balance of comfort and quality in this combination. The life of a memory foam mattress is about 8-10 years making it a convenient and affordable option for most consumers.

What is a Spring Mattress?

Spring mattress, also known as the traditional mattress is made with metal coils and is covered with other material layers to provide the proper support and comfort. The most common types of spring mattresses are Bonnell Spring Mattresses and Pocket Spring Mattresses. In Bonnell spring mattresses, the coils are interconnected. Whereas is Pocket spring mattresses, each coil is encased in individual fabric pockets.

Spring mattresses have got three parts; the comfort layer, the core and the foundation. The core is made of coils. The comfort layer usually made of foam of fiber is a thin soft layer placed over the coils. And the foundation layer is assigned to provide support to the coils from below and is mostly wooden pads or a foam layer. When compared to memory foam mattresses, spring mattresses lack the ability to contour to your body fast. But adding a layer of memory foam on top can resolve this. Since the core is made of coils, there is enough airflow happening from inside to outside of the mattress and provides you with a cooling mattress surface. Moreover, the coils create a bouncy feel which most of the consumers enjoy during sleep.

Memory Foam and Spring Mattresses consists of entirely different materials. Memory foam mattress heats up fast but spring mattresses can keep the temperature neutral. Motion absorption is possible in case of memory foam mattresses and spring mattresses only if the core is made of pocketed springs. Even though both types of mattresses are different they do have some common qualities like the lifespan. High-quality spring mattresses and memory foam mattresses have almost the same lifespan. So if you are planning to buy a mattress, keep your personal needs in mind before making a choice!
