Frequently Asked Mattress Questions


Ready to purchase a mattress, but have a few questions first? No problem! We’ll go over all you need to know about twin mattresses, queen mattresses, king-size mattresses, and more. Our handy mattress buying guide can help you, too.

Which type of mattress is best?

The best type of mattress for you depends on what you find comfortable. Many people prefer a hybrid mattress because it combines the support of more traditional coils with a softer foam topper. These may feel more supportive than just a foam mattress, but they’re also slightly more expensive.

A mattress with memory foam offers medium-firm support that provides a soft surface you sink into. Another bonus of a memory foam mattress? They are excellent at limiting bounce and motion transfer, meaning that if you sleep with a partner, you won’t disturb them if you toss and turn at night.

For others who prefer a more traditional innerspring mattress, these can also be comfortable. Because they offer spring support, you’ll need an accompanying box spring — but many people like the extra padding of these mattresses.

What are the five best mattresses to buy?

The five main mattress sizes that are the best to buy include twin, twin XL, full, queen, and king. They range from the smallest size to the largest size, accordingly. A twin mattress is an ideal size for a child or spare room where you don’t have a lot of space. For teenaged kids or a slightly bigger spare room, we’d recommend a twin XL mattress or full mattress. Twin XL mattresses are the same width as a regular twin, but they’re just longer to accommodate taller people. A full mattress, on the other hand, has a bit more width.

Finally, for your personal bedroom, try out a queen mattress or king mattress. These offer room for two adults to sleep comfortably. And as a bonus sixth mattress, a California king mattress offers additional width to make your next nap like sleeping on a cloud.

How often should your mattress be replaced?

Experts recommend replacing your mattress every six to eight years to experience optimal comfort every night. You spend one-third of your life sleeping! So it’s worth it to regularly upgrade something you spend so much time on. However, that’s just a recommendation — your individual mattress may last less time or more time, depending on its durability and how often you use it.

How long do mattresses usually last?

While six to eight years is a general guideline for mattress replacement, some types of mattresses are more durable. For example, a memory foam or hybrid mattress may last up to 10 years before you start having comfort issues. However, for more traditional innerspring mattresses, you’ll definitely want to consider a replacement by at least year eight.
