Most people reading this have slept on an innerspring mattress, even if they don’t already know it. Innerspring mattresses are some of the most common mattress types. They are usually seen in bedrooms, guest rooms, and even hotel rooms all across America and are considered a good mattress type for many different sleeping styles, ages and positions.
But if you’ve slept on an innerspring mattress, maybe you want to know more about them before deciding to buy an innerspring mattress.
What is an Innerspring Mattress?
- The Foundation – The foundation is the bottom-most part of an innerspring mattress, and mostly provides support for the individual coils.
- The Core – The core is the main part of any innerspring mattress, and provides a metal frame that houses the individual springs. The number of springs can vary between different types of innerspring mattress, but they’re all largely constructed the same with the coils in the center.
- The Comfort Layer – The comfort layer is the only part of the mattress you actually touch when you sleep. On any innerspring mattress, the comfort layer is the upholstery you sleep on.
While the design and construction of innerspring mattresses tends to be fairly similar across the board, the subtle differences in things like coil placement and coil material tend to be the biggest difference. In most types of innerspring mattress, you will find Bonnell coils or offset coils, both of which are built with thick wires (although in the case of offset coils, these are frequently shaped differently to provide differing levels of support).
One of the biggest differences when it comes to types of innerspring mattress does hinge on the type of coil being used, in that many more ‘modern’ innerspring mattresses use a pocketed coil design. As opposed to other innerspring mattresses which use the coils individually, these pocketed coils are kept together under strands of fabric to create a more cohesive sleeping experience that mimics memory foam, although with more flexibility (and much less heat retention) than foam,
Benefits of an Innerspring Mattress
Despite their time-tested design, innerspring mattresses still offer a number of benefits that modern sleepers will find helpful and comfortable.
For starters, innerspring mattresses tend to be the firmest mattresses available (even without being specifically designed to be firm), which makes them invaluable for back and side sleepers that need more support than a stomach sleeper might. Innerspring mattresses also tend to be available at every comfort level, from soft to firm, thanks to their simpler construction and versatility making it easier to design innerspring mattresses for a wider audience. And, perhaps most importantly, their cost-effective design places them well within the reach of most budgets.
Innerspring Mattress Sizes
Innerspring mattresses have hundreds of years of design refinement behind them, which means they can be made available in nearly any size or style of mattress. Queen, full, king, and twin are available if you need an innerspring mattress for your bedroom, guest room, or your kids' bedroom. You'll be able to find the right size innerspring mattress with ease.
Maintaining Your Innerspring Mattress
Luckily, the durable design of innerspring mattresses means there’s not much that needs to be done for their upkeep, but there is one big tip many don’t know about: flipping your mattress. Innerspring mattresses, including pillow-top innerspring mattresses, need to be flipped over at regular intervals to help distribute weight across the springs better and prevent uneven wear and tear on one side. Depending on your mattress, some experts recommend doing this every month or every other month, but if that sounds like a hassle you should at least do it seasonally to help keep everything springy and comfortable.
Other than that, the best thing you can do for your innerspring mattress is to make sure you have the right style bed frame. Innerspring mattresses (and their associated box springs) need to have a bedframe with support in the middle to prevent sagging under the weight of the coils. These bed frames either have slats across the middle to keep them upright or are solid all the way across to make sure the weight is evenly distributed across the mattress.
