Latex Mattress

Crafted with either synthetic materials or natural latex sap from rubber trees, latex mattresses have soared in popularity thanks to their body-conforming qualities and increasingly affordable price points. Latex is characterized by its buoyant resiliency that supports the body without placing pressure on the shoulders and hips.

If you’re looking for the best mattress type for side sleepers, ask our staff about OMI OrganicPedic beds, made with 100% natural, organic latex.

Latex mattresses are available in a variety of softness levels that accommodate personal preferences.

Latex mattress benefits: Resistant to potential allergens including dust mites, mold and bacteria. Excellent for restless sleepers who toss and turn a lot, since the open-cell material isolates motion.

Memory Foam Mattress

Want a mattress that envelops every curve of your body in cloud-like comfort? Memory foam is renowned for its viscosity, allowing it to mold to your body within seconds. The first memory foam mattresses were praised for their comfort, but recent innovations have yielded a whole new line of gel foams and phase-change materials that don’t retain heat, and help promote a cooler sleeping temperature throughout the evening. Gel-infused memory foam mattresses garner 5-star reviews for their comfort, durability and pressure-relieving qualities.

Memory foam mattress benefits: Available in varying thickness and firmness levels, memory foam is body-conforming, and recommended for pressure point relief. Provides exceptional orthopedic support for joint and back pain sufferers.

Hybrid Mattress

Today’s hybrid mattresses encompass the newest advancements in sleep technology, giving you not one but two separate support systems. These sophisticated mattresses typically have an innerspring coil foundation topped with multiple layers of latex or high-grade memory foam. Hybrid mattresses are thought to offer more versatility for the discriminating buyer, who wants the pressure-relieving comfort of gel foam or latex, with the durable support of steel coils. Hybrid mattresses vary tremendously in materials and quality of construction, so it pays to inquire about both before purchase.

Hybrid Mattress benefits: Groundbreaking technology and versatile options available to accommodate the majority of preferences and price points.

Innerspring/Coil Mattress

Innerspring mattresses use steel or titanium alloy coils for support. Depending on the model and manufacturer, innerspring coil mattresses may have individually wrapped coils, pocketed coils and even additional layers of nano steel springs. This support system is blanketed by various padding and comfort layers, made of cotton, poly foam and other materials.  Coil mattresses offer great value for money and are sold in various levels of plushness.

Innerspring Mattress benefits: Affordable, durable and a great mattress type for back sleepers who need extra lumbar support.
