Hybrid Mattresses at Bedding Plus

Doctors and experts consistently stress the importance of quality sleep, with more research coming out all of the time on its benefits. Sleep is one of the best ways to stay healthy, recover from illness, and boost your chances of living longer. Your mattress plays a big role when it comes to how well you sleep. It’s an investment that can give you the rest you need night after night.

At Bedding Plus, we strive to help our customers find the perfect mattress because we know how important sleep is. With so many different mattresses on the market, mattress shopping can feel overwhelming, though. Fortunately, hybrid mattresses combine a variety of features to provide unique support, so you can truly have it all.

What Is A Hybrid Mattress?

Fans of hybrid mattresses will tell you that it gives them the best of both worlds. For those who like the idea of memory foam, but aren’t completely sold on that sinking feeling, a hybrid can be the perfect solution with more support. Likewise, sleepers who enjoy traditional coil foundations with an extra layer of softness will also benefit from the hybrid experience.

These mattresses usually combine a traditional innerspring system with layers of memory foam or latex. The result is a unique type of comfort that balances the traditional bounciness of an innerspring mattress with the pressure point relief of memory foam or latex.

To put it simply, hybrid mattresses strike a balance between two of the most popular technologies on the market, allowing you to check every box on your sleeping must-haves.

Ideal Sleepers For Hybrid Mattresses

Hybrid mattresses come in a wide range of support levels, so they're truly one of the options that can work for any type of sleeper and sleep style. From ultra-firm to plush, you can find a mattress you love.

Side sleepers do particularly well with hybrid mattresses. The blend of support systems provides a comfortable surface for sleeping on your side.

What Kind of Sleeper Are You?

What Are Hybrid Mattress Benefits?
There are many benefits to choosing latex mattresses, including these advantages that have made latex so popular:
  • Hypoallergenic:

    Natural latex mattresses are resistant to dust mites, mold, and mildew. This makes it an ideal choice for anyone who suffers from allergies, asthma, skin sensitivity, or other issues.

  • Versatility

    Whether you’re looking for plush comfort or firm pressure point relief, there is a latex mattress for you. This versatility also makes it a great choice for couples who have different sleeping styles. With a range of different options and features, you can find the right latex mattress for both sleepers.

  • Breathable

    If you tend to feel hot at night, breathability is an important feature to look for. Fortunately, latex mattresses allow for cooling airflow due to the tiny pinholes across their surface. Every time you move, air is pushed into and out of the mattress, creating a cool and comfortable sleep environment.

  • Durability

    Buying a mattress is an investment, which means you want it to stand the test of time. One of the most impressive things about a natural latex mattress is the fact that it can last up to 25 years, or more. This is in stark contrast to some types of mattresses that may begin to sag before you hit the ten-year mark.

  • Eco-friendly

    Going green in all areas of your home is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Latex mattresses cause minimal harm or pollution to the environment due to their natural materials and manufacturing process. Plus, latex is biodegradable to minimize consumption and waste.

Drawbacks of hybrid mattresses
Any big purchase is likely to come with pros and cons, mattresses included. Keep in mind, most drawbacks listed here will be more present in lower-end models. High-quality hybrid mattresses feature technology that can usually offset some of these issues.
  • Increased weight:

    Hybrid mattresses can be particularly heavy due to the layers of latex or memory foam on top of metal coils. However, hybrid mattresses don’t need to be flipped or rotated like other traditional mattresses. That means you should be good to go once you have it in place.

  • Sagging or off-gassing is possible in poor designs

    In cases where low-quality memory foam or latex is used, the off-gassing smell can be noticeable for several weeks. Sagging may also occur with poorly-manufactured materials.

  • Higher price tag

    In comparison to budget-friendly innerspring mattresses, hybrid mattresses may cost a bit more. With that said, a quality hybrid mattress is worth the extra cost for blissful sleep.

What Is A Hybrid Mattress Made Of?
All mattresses are unique, especially when it comes to hybrid mattresses. Each manufacturer has a different method of production. However, the best hybrid mattresses will include the following elements:
  • Traditional innerspring coil system:

    The foundation, shape, and support come from coils at the core of the mattress. The overall construction and gauge of each coil (coil thickness) is the most important factor in determining how a hybrid mattress will perform.

  • Comfort layers

    In a hybrid mattress, you’ll find comfort layers of memory foam or latex. This is what gives a hybrid mattress the ability to conform to your body. The primary component of memory foam is polyurethane, which goes through a sophisticated process of mixing with water and other substances to rise like bread. On the other hand, latex is a natural material. For some, it’s important to have an eco-friendly product like natural latex because it is hypoallergenic and naturally resistant to mold and dust mites. There are also several different types of synthetic latex. Which one you choose will come down to your preferences.

  • Cooling materials

    Because memory foam and latex are known to run warm, many hybrid mattresses include layers of cooling gel to help slow the process of heat transfer.

  • A pillow top

    While you won’t find it in every mattress, some plush models include a pillow top for an added level of cushioning. This is great for sleepers who enjoy softer mattresses.

While every mattress is unique, the lifespan of a well-made hybrid mattress is roughly ten years or more. Like anything else, there are several factors that influence how long your mattress will last.

Proper care and the use of a mattress protector will extend the longevity of your mattress by keeping it clean and dry. Use a sturdy and solid support to prevent sagging. Furthermore, frequency of use also has a significant impact on how long your mattress will last. A mattress in your guest room that isn’t used on a nightly basis will typically last longer.

The most important thing is to ensure that your mattress is on a sturdy, solid surface. In general, if you are using a metal bed frame, a box spring is important. This will evenly distribute the weight of your mattress, as well as your weight, when you’re in bed.

Alternatively, if you plan to use your mattress with a platform bed or even a bed with close wooden slats, you will probably already have ample support. In this case, your mattress has the foundation it needs to prevent sagging and boost lifespan.

Memory foam contours to your body to relieve pressure off your back. This type of mattress will feel like a hug every time you fall into bed. Your body will be cradled by the denseness of the foam. For some sleepers, though, this can feel more like a sinking feeling.

Hybrid mattresses take memory foam and combine it with the use of traditional innerspring coils to provide extra support. This blend of two different types of technology is how the hybrid mattress gets its name. You'll still get that contoured cradle, but there will be a layer of support underneath to prevent that sinking experience.

Memory foam has a reputation for trapping heat. On the other hand, the coils of innerspring technology allow for better airflow.

Hybrid mattress technology provides a cool sleep due to the combination of both of these features. Plus, many hybrid mattresses also feature layers of cooling gel at the top of the mattress to wick away heat at night.
