What is The Best Rated Mattress?
Mattress ratings should be your first reference when looking for a new mattress. So before you buy you need to spend some time and effort on reading consumer reports of mattresses. However, you also need to be smart enough to distinguish between good mattress ratings and those that are downright misleading.
You might be thinking; what is the best rated mattress? Well, the truth is there isn't such a thing. In fact there are many brands and collections that can rightly claim to be the most highly rated mattress. This is because we are all different and one mattress that is perfect for one person is awful for another.
Also, there are many different types available. What one person might think to be the best rated type of mattress being, say, a traditional innerspring, there'll be another who swears by memory foam.
To help you decide which mattress is best for you, the following factors of mattess ratings may help.
- Cost - or more specifically:
value for money.
Brand Name - if you know nothing of how mattresses are made, then sticking to brand names you've heard of before would be a wise move.
- Ease of Maintenance: some mattresses require more maintenance than others. Most traditional innersprings need to be turned about every 3 months. Waterbed mattresses need to be treated to keep the water clean. Air mattresses may need new inner bladders frequently.
- Hypoallergenic Properties - latex and memory foam mattresses are especially good for allergy sufferers.
- After Sales Service - Always know exactly what the warranty is. Some companies claim that they will replace a mattress if a customer is dissatisfied with it; however some companies seem to find ways to nullify the warranty. So, read the small print and if you don't understand something then ask.

For memory foam you should always look at the current collection from Tempurpedic. The company has quite a few types on offer, but the Tempurpedic ClassicBed remains a good choice. Both Sealy and Restonic also make superb memory foam mattresses. If you're on a budget then take a look at Isoform mattresses.
If you've never considered buying an air mattress, think again. Both the
Simmons Luxaire and the AeroBed Raised Bed mattress are good choices.
