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!
