Here we go over all the mattresses for sale and tell you our top 5 of 2020. This way you’re not caught Googling “mattresses near me” at 3 AM when you wake up with another backache.

What Are the Different Types of Mattresses?

Walking into a mattress store is daunting. There are tons of models and different types. How do you know the difference and which is good for what person?

The differences between mattresses go from subtle to drastic but each serves a purpose and has a target user. Let’s go over the main types now.


If you picture a mattress in your mind the one you are picturing is most likely an innerspring mattress. This type is by far the most popular type of mattress.

An innerspring is a firmer mattress and is made up of hundreds of interlocking spring coils. These work together to form the feeling of a complete surface while also having the give to customize to the user.

The best part about the innerspring mattress is it’s readily available at a variety of different prices. It’s by far the most affordable mattress type. There are some drawbacks though.

You’ll need to replace these much more often as the springs get worn out and the mattress starts to sag after continued use. Most innerspring mattresses are one-sided so you won’t be able to flip them to bring them back to life. They have lower satisfaction scores than other types and are slowly being phased out in favor of their more durable and comfortable counterparts.

However, these are a great choice for a guest bedroom or a spare bed that is only used once in a while. It’s affordable and you don’t need the investment of everyday comfort.


This is one of the newest innovations on the market. The micro-coil mattress takes the innerspring idea and matches the practicality with actual comfort.

While innerspring mattresses rely on comfort layers placed on top of the springs to make them pleasurable to lay on, micro-coil mattresses use the metal springs themselves to create the comfort layer. They accomplish this by including tons of tiny springs in all different sizes and lengths to build on each other.

This gives you the firmness of an innerspring with the comfort of some of the foam or gel models.

Memory Foam

These mattresses are made with a solid piece of memory foam. They offer a lot more pressure point support and are the ideal choice for people with back problems.

You sink into them like a cloud and the foam hugs and contours to your body. This gives you a whole new level of comfort.

Some drawbacks to memory foam are that they don’t offer much resistance and push back so they are harder to get out of than your traditional innerspring options. Some say they sleep hotter than other types of mattresses so if you like to keep cool while you sleep this isn’t the best choice.


Gel-infused mattresses take memory foam a step further. In an effort to solve the hot at night problem they are infused with a cooling gel that reacts with your body heat and keeps you cooler all night long.

This also makes the mattress practically silent masking all movements of your partner. This is great for couples who work different schedules or if one is a light sleeper who notices every bump.

Even with the gel, these mattresses may still leave you uncomfortable if you’re a super hot sleeper. There are better options out there for you in this arena.


This is by far the best type of mattress for those concerned with sleeping temperature. It gives you the comfort of memory foam through layering but the cooling effects of a more traditional innerspring mattress. The pocketed coil layer is more protected and lasts longer.

The foam layers offer comfort and support while the whole mattress provides a better amount of push back so it’s easy to maneuver even for people with mobility issues.

The hybrid mattress is the synergy between the two technologies to give you an optimal comfort level and a great night’s sleep.


The newest kid on the block is the latex mattress. These mattresses are eco-friendly and biodegradable. They are also allergen-free which benefits those who are sensitive to dust mites and other microscopic critters that dwell in more traditional mattresses over time.

The entire mattress is made of cool material so they naturally sleep cooler than other mattresses. They are supremely comfortable because they mold to your body.
