Choosing the Right Bed: Various Mattress Types

Last updated 6 years ago

Are you ready for a new bed? The mattress selection process may seem overwhelming, but Mattress Direct makes your purchase simple by offering the following types of mattresses at affordable prices:

Memory Foam

If you’re looking for a mattress that will comfortably conform to your body, a memory foam bed may be perfect for you! Memory foam mattresses offer various levels of firmness, and mold themselves around the shape and position of your body while you sleep, allowing you to get consistently restful sleep every night.

Traditional Coil Spring

The most popular type of bed is still the traditional innerspring mattress. This classic style has been providing nighttime comfort for decades. Yet while the basic concept of the innerspring mattress has stayed the same, its design has changed with advancements in technology. Arranging the coil springs in various formations or including a specific number of springs creates a softer or firmer mattress.


A popular bed type and mattress brand is the Tempur-Pedic. Tempur-Pedic mattresses were invented by Swedish scientists who took the technology from NASA and adapted it to be a household item. These mattresses utilize the specialized Tempur material rather than coil springs. Tempur-Pedic mattresses come in various sizes, and remain affordable while still being high-quality, so every member of your household can enjoy them.

Latex Foam

If you’re looking for back support and pressure relief, a latex foam mattress can help. Containing either solid foam or various types of foam layered on top of one another, latex mattresses provide an affordable solution for painful joints.

If you live in the St. Louis area and are searching for one of the aforementioned types of mattresses, come visit Mattress Direct. We carry Beautyrest, Tempur-Pedic, and other popular mattress brands—call us at (314) 549-8496 to learn more about our selection.
