The differences between memory foam and latex mattresses

It can be extremely perplexing looking for a bed because there are so many varieties of beds available to select from. You can also save some cash by getting a latex mattress topper as an alternative. Something that could potentially help is to read memory foam or latex mattress reviews before you make your decision. All beds are not alike and coming to a decision as to which one is best for you might take some effort.

The two items that consumers look at most are price and comfort. If you would like to evaluate selling prices there are two principal bits of information that you need to have, the amount and the number of years you are planning on the bedding to last. Take the full cost and divide it by the number of years and you will come up with an annual price for that specific mattress. Figuring prices in this fashion makes it easy to judge prices among different kinds of beds. As an example, a $1,200 mattress that lasts 12 years will cost you $100 a year.

Memory foam beds will usually last about 15 years if they are occasionally turned over to prevent sagging. Latex beds can last a lot longer and go for 30 years or more without too much sagging. If prices are identical the latex bedding will be half the price each year.

When apprising sleep comfort there are so many variables it will probably make your head spin. If you like to remain cool memory foam is in all probability not the right bedding for you. Memory foam beds hold on to more body heat than other mattress styles and will be uncomfortable for some people. Latex is cooler because it has little holes drilled into it that helps increase the flow of air throughout the mattress. These small holes, named pin core holes, also lessen friction in the latex which is one reason why this sort of bedding lasts so long.

Memory foam is firmer than latex and is usually rated at 5 ILD (Indentation Load Deflection) or greater. Latex foam is most often rated at 4 ILD or less. If you want a really firm bed you cannot go wrong with a memory mattress. Nevertheless, an organic latex mattress also has plenty of firmness, but additionally has that bounce to it that makes it feel a bit softer.

In addition to cost and comfort there are a few other items that you must be aware of prior to making a final assessment. Latex is made from tree sap and is 100 natural. It is environmentally friendly, hypoallergenic, and resistant to fire, pests, and dust mites, as well as being antimicrobial. This is why it is an ideal bedding for asthma sufferers. Memory foam on the other hand is produced from chemicals that might be the origin of allergic reactions or skin irritation in some people. Furthermore, it is not environmentally friendly.

Latex beds are not perfect, they have one drawback. They are rather costly to purchase. If they seem too high-priced you can go for latex mattress toppers as an alternative. Nevertheless, given that this form of mattress lasts for so many years the yearly cost can be fairly low, making them a good value. They are also extremely heavy which will make them tough to move if the circumstance requires it.

Memory foam is unique in that it conforms to the outline of a person. This is arguably the best advantage this sort of bed has to offer because it will lessen the amount of pressure on any one body part by spreading the weight over a greater area. Sleepers with back pain many times discover incredible relief from sleeping on memory foam. Do not rush into purchasing something you will end up hating, but study more memory or latex mattress reviews prior to making a choice you may be unhappy with for a long time.
