How to buy a bed: Spring mattress or Memory Foam mattress?

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!
In this article, we compare foam mattresses with spring mattresses and look at how each type of mattress can influence the how you sleep.

The ins and outs of spring mattresses


Most spring mattresses consist of small springs that work independently from each other. 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.

Adjusts to your body

Spring systems adjust well to body contours. The level of adjustment and comfort is dependent on the quality of your mattress. 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.

Roll together

Spring systems helps to eliminate partner roll together. With SleepMaker you’ll sleep with reduced partner disturbance.


Spring mattresses are usually more breathable, allowing for optimal temperature control. At SleepMaker we’ve developed a Climatex Quilt fabric. This design promotes breathability to keep you cool and comfortable throughout the night.
Lately there is a mattress trend towards Memory Foam. So what’s driven this trend and what’s the fuss all about?


The ins and outs 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.


Memory foam mattresses have good pressure relieving properties – though some people might find it tricky to move around in their sleep or to get in and out of bed.


Memory foam mattresses may feel warm, especially in the summer, and some people find that using special temperature regulating covers can reduce this effect if they are wanting to be cooler.

One sided

Memory foam mattresses are often one-sided so shouldn’t be turned over, instead rotated to ensure even wear and tear.

The SleepMaker difference
