The importance of a good night’s sleep is well known, and the mattress you choose will play a part in how well you sleep night after night. When it comes to types of mattresses, the choices may seem a bit overwhelming.

At The Mattress Factory, we’re committed to helping our customers find the perfect mattress and if you’re having difficulty deciding between an innerspring mattress or a foam one, now you don’t have to. Hybrid mattresses give you the best of both worlds, and we’ve provided you with some important considerations below to help you find your ideal mattress for the best night’s sleep.

What Is a Hybrid Mattress?

A hybrid mattress is technically any mattress made from more than one material, but the term is most frequently associated with mattresses that have a coil support system along with a material such as memory foam.

The exact composition of a hybrid mattress varies depending upon the manufacturer and the specific style, but in general the components of this type of mattress are:

  A steel support coil system that can help to reduce motion transfer.

  A comfort layer comprised of memory foam, latex, polyfoam, or other type of foam.

  Cooling materials, such as gel, to slow down body warmth transfer to the mattress.

  A pillow top that provides additional cushioning.

Who Benefits From a Hybrid Mattress?

With the combination of traditional coil support and contouring comfort of memory foam, like that found in the Beautyrest Silver Hybrid Mattress, anyone can benefit from a hybrid mattress. Those who sleep on their sides may find the system especially enjoyable, as it provides support to the two most vulnerable parts of the body for side sleepers—the shoulders and the hips.

Having someone to curl up with in bed can be a great comfort, until that person moves constantly throughout the night. A hybrid mattress will help reduce motion transfer, meaning that you’ll feel less of your partner’s movement so you can enjoy a more peaceful night’s sleep.
