Making Sense of all the Different Memory Foam Mattress Prices
To help take some of the confusion out of buying a new mattress, Cheap Mattress Reviews was founded to provide you with consumer reviews of all the leading mattresses available today.
Memory foam has created quite a buzz around the mattress-making circles, so much so that the leading manufacturers have all found it necessary to include it in their ranges, such is the demand nowadays. There are also a lot of other makers who have jumped on the bandwagon since Tempur-pedic first introduced the NASA-inspired foam into the bedding market, meaning there is a vast array of different models available and there are great differences in memory foam mattress prices out there. It can all be a little confusing and it’s important to know what we’re getting for our money.
While we are big fans of value for money and getting great deals online we would not like to use the phrase “cheap memory foam mattress” as it may give you the wrong idea. There are ways we can get a well-made, quality mattress at a bargain price if we do our research first and then buy online, where there are many retailers who offer great discounts on major brands, offering a certain stamp of quality that you may not get from a cheap mattress elsewhere.
The thing with memory foam is that there are vastly differing qualities between manufacturers and any given mattress will use a different quantity of the foam to another mattress, even in the same range. Doing your research here means checking out whether the manufacturer is a using a Tempur-pedic grade of foam that envelops the body and regulates temperature, because it has been composed with this in mind, or whether it is a cheaper foam that is being marketed as “memory foam” because of the buzz surrounding it. These are the two extremes, perhaps, and there is a wide space for perfectly good memory foam mattresses in between, but being aware of the potential differences beforehand will alert you to possible problems you can recognize when searching.
Many times now, memory foam will be blended with latex or other foams, or even sit in the upper layers of an innerspring mattress. So it is not just about the quality of the foam, but about where the foam is positioned in the mattress and in what amounts it is used.
Making sure you check the manufacturer carefully is a good start – how long have they been in business? Are they known for memory foam or innerspring mattresses? Do they have a name for quality workmanship? Is there specific product and material detail on their web site?
Even if you opt for one of the leading manufactures’ cheapest memory foam mattress you may end up better off than going with a top-range model from a manufacturer you are not sure about. You will usually receive a 10-year limited warranty with the top manufacturers, maybe longer, and shopping online at a reputable retailer can land you a bargain that is delivered to your door within a week.
