28 Jul Mattress and Other Variables for Guest Bedrooms, Part 2
In part one of this multi-part blog series, we went over some of the basics on choosing the ideal mattress for a guest bedroom. There are several variables to consider when making this choice, from the frequency with which the room will be occupied to the number of sleepers, the mattress material and many others.
At 2 Brothers Mattress, we’re happy to help our clients with mattress and mattress accessory purchases for a wide variety of room types, with a huge range of mattress materials ranging from memory foam to latex and many others. Speaking of materials, today’s entry in our guest bedroom series will be all about them – which are the best to consider for cost-effective, yet comfortable guest mattress options? Here are a few good choices to keep in mind.
Memory foam is a great product not only due to its physical qualities, but also its wide range of prices available. It’s known to contour to the shape of the sleeper, helping support it in numerous ways that other mattress types might not offer.
Two major areas to consider here are temperature and support. Some sleepers tend to get a bit hot on standard memory foam mattresses because of the way they sink into them – but there are also gel or copper materials that come with many memory foam mattresses that are meant to help cool the body down. As for support, this mostly comes down to budget: The higher-quality memory foam you can afford, the better support and density will be offered.
Also known as a coil mattress, these are traditional mattress types that use spring coils as their primary support method. There are a few different coil varieties that might be used here – if possible, look for an option with pocketed (or independent) coils, which all perform individually and contour to sleeper shape. Continuous coils, on the other hand, will bring a firmer sleep experience.
Latex is somewhat similar to memory foam, though it’s more environmentally friendly for those who are considering this realm. It’s also a bit more responsive, making it ideal for older individuals or those with movement issues. For those who regularly host parents or other senior family members, latex mattresses are often the ideal choice.
Hybrid mattresses will blend at least two of the other options we’ve gone over here, and sometimes all three, with customization possible in some cases as well. This allows you to target specific mattress qualities, often ideal for those who host the same guest or couple regularly and can obtain detailed sleep preference information from them.
