Is a spring mattress or foam mattress better for me?
Choosing the right mattress can be a little confusing. There are different mattress types offering a whole range of different benefits and features, and with so many choices out there, it’s important to know what each type offers and what you should look for in a mattress. As you’re probably aware, not all mattresses are the same!

Benefits of Spring Mattresses

Durable Support

Most spring mattresses consist of durable pocket springs that work independently from each other, often providing graduated support across the surface of a mattress. The SleepMaker Miracoil spring unit system offers you superior support through a stronger, continuous coil wire. The patented z-shaped coil structure covers more surface area, providing greater support across the entire mattress. Conforming to your body Spring systems adjust well to body contours because they’re able to respond to varying pressure levels from your body. The level of adjustment and comfort is dependent on the quality of your mattress. Pocket spring mattresses often have zoning within them, providing more durable support at heavier points in the body. The SleepMaker Miracoil advance spring system features a graduated five-zone support system, where the mattress transitions from soft to firm zones to perfectly support the hip region and helps to maintain optimal spinal alignment.

Reduced Roll Together and Partner Disturbance

Spring systems work well to eliminate partner roll together and partner disturbance. All SleepMaker mattresses are designed to reduce roll together and partner disturbance. SleepMaker Cocoon mattresses feature a Sensorzone core where each spring is individually encased in foam, isolating partner movement.

Temperature Management

Spring mattresses are usually more breathable, allowing for optimal temperature control. Many SleepMaker mattresses also feature a Climatex Quilt fabric – this design promotes breathability to keep you cool and comfortable throughout the night.

Benefits of Memory Foam Mattresses

Molding to Your Body

Memory foam responds to body temperature and weight, slowly conforming to your body profile – this could mean that it might feel cooler and firm when you first hop in bed, but will mold to your shape as it reacts to your body heat and weight.

Comfort and Support

Memory foam mattresses have good pressure relieving properties – varying densities of foam form the upper, comfort layers for optimal comfort and support. Some people might find it tricky to move around in their sleep or to get in and out of bed with a memory foam mattress, while others will prefer this feel.

Temperature Management

Memory foam mattresses may feel warm, especially in the summer. Many people find that using special temperature regulating covers can reduce this effect if they are wanting to be cooler throughout the night. However if you get too warm often, you can read about our best mattress for hot sleepers.

Premium Side

Memory foam mattresses are often one-sided so shouldn’t be turned over, instead rotated to ensure even wear and tear. SleepMaker offers a range of superior spring and foam mattresses to suit all sleeping styles and preferences. We manufacture a range of beds to suit the Australian lifestyle with the latest comfort technology at affordable prices for Australian homes.
