A significant determining factor in the quality of sleep you get is the types of mattresses you’re sleeping on. Which are the best mattresses? Can cheap mattresses give you a good night’s rest? What are the different mattress types?

Here we review all the available mattresses and tell you our top 5. This way, you’re not caught Googling “mattresses near me” at 3 AM when you wake up with another backache.

What Are the Top Mattress Types?

Walking into a mattress store is daunting. There are tons of models and different types. How do you know the difference and which is suitable 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 having the give to customize to the user.

The best part about the innerspring mattress is it’s readily available at various 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 used only occasionally. 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 ideal and matches 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 of all different sizes and lengths to build on each other.

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

Memory Foam

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

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

Some drawbacks to memory foam are that it doesn’t offer much resistance and pushback, so it is 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 calm while you sleep, this isn’t the best choice.


Gel-infused mattresses take memory foam a step further. 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 your partner’s movements. 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 make you uncomfortable if you’re a 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 pushback, making it easy to maneuver, even for people with mobility issues.

The hybrid mattress combines the two technologies to give you optimal comfort 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, benefiting those 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.
