Tips for buying a mattress

When buying a new mattress, the choices can be overwhelming: spring core or cold foam, hard or soft, single or double mattress. Without competent advice from a furniture retailer, it is difficult to navigate the jungle of products to find the perfect mattress that suits your needs and offers pleasant lying and sleeping comfort.

Spring core versus cold foam

Choosing the right mattress core depends heavily on your preferences and your sleeping behaviour. Both mattress types have their own advantages depending on these factors. Spring mattresses score highly in air permeability and are therefore especially well-suited to people who perspire heavily at night.

With barrel pocket spring cores, the springs are individually welded or sewn into pockets. This offers greater point elasticity than simple spring cores, as only the individual spring under load yields to pressure.

Unlike spring cores, cold foam is known for its heat-insulating properties. This makes it a particularly good choice for people who get cold easily at night. The lower mattress weight also means easier handling. Special comfort foams have been developed on the basis of standard cold foam, one of which is Cellflex comfort foam. This high-quality comfort foam offers great breathability and high point elasticity thanks to its open-pored structure. Feelfoam® comfort foam, which is also used in ADA mattresses, also ensures top-quality air circulation and a pleasant microclimate thanks to its open-pored structure.

The right hardness level

When it comes to your lying comfort and ensuring the best possible relief for your body, choosing the right hardness level is crucial. Comfort is essential, but it is also important that you don’t feel like you are sinking into the mattress. If you sink in too deeply, it will take more muscle work when tossing and turning at night, which can disrupt your sleep. To offer you the best possible comfort, ADA mattresses are available in different hardness levels.
