What are the benefits of Pocket Sprung Mattresses?

There’s nothing more important than getting a good night’s sleep. It allows you to shake off the hardships of the day before and unwind. Giving your body that much needed rest it needs to perform throughout the following day. Having spent years selling mattresses in Glasgow, we know a thing or two about the best type of mattress, and how to get the best night’s sleep!

Unfortunately, many people suffer from a poor night’s sleep. With the quality of their mattress coming in high on the list of causes. This is why we’re delving deeper into the complicated and confusing world of mattresses in this series of blogs.

Last week we looked at the advantages of memory foam mattresses, which you can read here… and this week we’ll be taking a closer look at the memory foam mattress’ arch nemesis, the traditional, pocket-spring mattress.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Last Longer

When you purchase a top-quality pocket spring mattress, with a high spring count – you’re getting a mattress that can go the distance. By maintaining the mattress well and regularly flipping, you will easily be able to get up to 10 years out of it without noticing any sag. This is in contrast to memory foam, which by its very nature will unfortunately suffer from sag over time.

Memory foam mattresses have a great deal of benefits, but longevity isn’t one of them. Opting for a pocket spring mattress will future proof you and save you having to worry about the inconvenience of buying a new mattress again for a while!

Pocket Spring Mattresses Utilise Independent Springs

This may seem like an obvious point. However, it is one of great importance -especially for couples! Having springs independent of one another means that two people sleeping on either side of the mattress are using different springs. Independent springs, therefore, means one person not affecting the other’s side of the bed.

In open coil mattresses, if one person is heavier than the other, then the lighter person will end up rolling towards the middle of the bed. Likewise with memory foam. Once one person has their ‘groove’ moulded into the memory foam mattress, there’s no room for manoeuvre. This means memory foam mattresses could prove problematic for some couples.

Pocket spring mattresses are a great choice for people who struggle to get a good night’s rest while sharing a bed. Couples with differing weights and support requirements should consider a pocket spring mattress.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Offer Great Support

Mattresses with high pocket spring counts are able to offer an incredible amount of support. As the pocket spring count goes up, the mattress becomes more firm. This allows the weight of the body to be distributed over a greater number of pocket springs.

This allows you to carefully select the level of firmness which is best for you. Some people prefer firm mattresses and others prefer soft; some people require a certain kind of mattress to aid them with various issues such as back or joint pain.

As your weight is distributed over each of the springs, the mattress will completely support your body. This allows the body to fully relax giving you a great night’s rest.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Feel More Luxurious

This may seem like more of a subjective point and something that comes down to each person’s own personal preference. However, we believe there is no greater feeling than a pocket spring mattress of the right firmness packed with a dense mixture of natural materials. We recommend lamb’s wool for extra comfort!

This is a feeling that a memory foam mattress just can’t replicate with its man-made, synthetic mix of lab-produced foam.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Aren’t Warm

If, like me, you prefer to sleep in a cool environment, then a pocket spring mattress is the choice for you. Memory foam mattresses are well-known for the heat they give off and can leave you tossing and turning through the night. No one likes kicking the duvet off and on, just to escape the horrors of a sweltering hot night’s sleep.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Don’t Smell

Ok, you might be wondering what on earth we’re talking about, but if you’ve ever owned a memory foam mattress you’ll completely understand!

Memory foam mattresses unfortunately come with a very distinct smell due to the synthetic foam and the chemicals used to create it. The smell doesn’t last forever but will be around for a few weeks or so and isn’t the most pleasant fragrance.

Pocket spring mattresses don’t suffer with this issue. So in this case we give this point as a win for the mattresses with pocket springs!

Many of which are on display at our Glasgow showroom, ranging from economical to luxury.

So, here for you, are some of the advantages of memory foam mattresses:

Less strain on the body with memory foam

Memory foam mattresses mould to the shape of your body when you lie on it. This allows your weight to be distributed evenly across the top of the mattress. There is a thin layer of memory foam is located above a base of more solid and non-memory foam. This feeling of soft foam moulding under your figure is the ultimate in comfort. It can give a much better night’s sleep than a standard pocket sprung mattress.

Memory foam mattress can relieve aches and pains

Are you one of the many people who suffer from sore joints or a stiff back in the morning? A memory foam mattress might just be the answer you’ve been looking for. The nature of the conforming foam has a big impact on your sleeping posture. Sleeping with a bad posture is one of the main causes of aches and pains and a memory foam mattress can help to correct your posture while you sleep.

A better posture can result in a better night’s sleep and allow you to wake up and start the day free of aches, pains and discomfort.

Memory Foam Mattresses Can Help Alleviate Stress

As mentioned before, with memory foam your body won’t be blighted by the same uncomfortable pressure points as other mattresses, meaning your body can be allowed to fully relax when sleeping. This gives your body the opportunity to de-stress during the night, allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed and re-energised.

Memory foam mattresses are perfect for people with allergies

People who suffer from allergies or breathing problems relating to dust will benefit greatly from switching to a memory foam mattress. The foam used to make the mattress is hypo-allergenic, meaning it is highly unlikely that the products will cause allergic reactions in people.

Memory foam mattresses are a much cleaner way to sleep, the hypoallergenic and antibacterial nature of memory foam mattresses means bed bugs are a fear of the past.
