Getting a good night’s sleep, it’s tougher than you think! Millions of Americans struggle with sleep due to stress or a variety of sleeping disorders. But a lot of us overlook one of the main culprits of restless nights – a bad mattress. Mattresses, like any other household item, get worn out with use. When your mattress starts to sag or provide poor support, it can negatively affect your daily life. Without a sufficient amount of quality sleep, our bodies and minds don’t function as well as they could.
You’ve Decided You Want A New Mattress, Now What?
The world of mattresses is a big one. With dozens of manufacturers, hundreds of brands and thousands of models, deciding on a new mattress can be overwhelming.

But for the new mattress buyer, we’ve put together this article which outlines some of the highest consumer-rated mattresses.
Mattress Types Vary
When buying a mattress, it is important to remember that different types of mattresses are designed to provide different benefits. Weighing the pros and cons of each mattress type will be valuable in the decision making process. Moving past the type of mattress, it is also important to consider the manufacturer and model of your new potential mattress. Different companies specialize in different types of mattresses. Knowing a company’s strengths and weaknesses may sway your purchasing decision. For more information on the basic types of mattress, review these informational pages:

- Natural and Organic Mattresses
Mattresses That Have Memory Foam
Memory foam mattresses or hybrid mattresses that include memory foam are quickly becoming the most popular choice for consumers across the U.S. Accompanying the surge in popularity of memory foam mattresses has been an increase in companies that offer memory foam models. There are some models that will provide a great night’s sleep for years to come, while others might not be worth their purchase price. When it comes to companies, there are some staples in the industry. Companies like Tempur-Pedic and Simmons have been around for awhile and have developed a reputation for producing high-quality memory foam mattresses. In particular, the Countour series from Tempur-Pedic and several of the Simmons Comforpedic are serious contenders when it comes to the best memory foam mattress.
Interested In Innerspring?
When compared to other mattress types, innerspring mattresses are the most widely used in the U.S. and have also been around the longest. Although this is the traditional design for a mattress, innerspring technology has consistently been improving over the past several decades. All innerspring mattresses utilize some form of metal coil for support. However, not all innerspring mattresses are created equal. The quality of innerspring mattresses vary greatly. This is because different companies use different innerspring designs and coil types.
On top of the coil support layer is the comfort layer. Comfort layers can be made from a variety of different materials. With all the different possible combinations, it can be tough to narrow in on a quality innerspring mattress. There are several companies that offer great innerspring mattress models. If you are looking to buy a new innerspring mattress, start with the top-tier models from the following companies:
- Saatva Mattress
- Serta mattresses (Perfect Sleeper Series)
- Sealy mattresses (Posturepedic Firm Series)
- Signature Sleep
Natural Latex Mattresses
For individuals and companies who are interested in purchasing organic products, natural latex mattresses can be made using 100% materials. Natural latex mattresses were rated amongst the highest by consumers in 2015. Synthetic latex mattresses do offer an alternative, but they are rated lower in consumer satisfaction across the board. There are far less natural latex mattress manufacturers than there are innerspring manufacturers. A majority of these mattresses are bought online but, if you decide on a mattress made by any of the companies listed below, you are probably off to a good start:
- Ultimate Dreams
It should be noted that major manufacturers (Sealy, Serta, Simmons, etc.) do offer reliable natural latex options, but were not included in this list because they do not specialize solely in natural latex mattresses.
