Need a new mattress? At Star Furniture & Mattress, we’re dedicated to making the mattress-buying process as simple as possible. Once you’ve narrowed down your search using our complete guide to buying a mattress, read on to learn everything you need to know about hybrid mattresses.

What is a Hybrid Mattress?

As the name suggests, hybrid mattresses are a combination of innerspring coils and memory foam. In fact, some hybrid mattresses even have additional gel comfort layers on top. While hybrid mattresses can vary in firmness, many are constructed to provide additional firmness when compared to memory foam mattresses.

Perks of Hybrid Mattresses

Hybrid mattresses combine the best parts of innerspring and memory foam mattresses. Not only does the coil system allow the mattress to retain the traditional bounciness that many associate with innerspring mattresses, but the layers of memory foam create a cocoon of conforming comfort. The innerspring coil system also gives hybrid mattresses a traditional mattress shape, rather than the lower profiles and straight lines more common with memory foam.

Choosing the Right Mattress

When choosing a bed, there are plenty of considerations to help you find the mattress of your dreams. Hybrid mattresses come in all sizes and firmness, so whether you’re looking for a king-sized plush mattress or an extra-firm queen, you’ll be able to find your preference. You’ll also want to consider motion isolation, mattress durability, and temperature neutrality.  At Star Furniture & Mattress, we offer popular hybrid mattress brands, including Sealy, Beautyrest, and Tempur-Pedic.

Caring for your Hybrid Mattress

If you want to maximize the lifespan of your mattress, it’s important that you regularly care for your new mattress. Generally, hybrid mattresses have a lifespan of six years, and using a mattress protector, choosing the right foundation, frequently changing the sheets, vacuuming your mattress, and rotating your mattress head-to-foot every two months can help keep your mattress in good shape for years to come.

Choosing the Right Bed Frame

Generally, hybrid mattresses can be placed on box springs, solid platforms, or adjustable foundations. Some people even put their hybrid mattresses directly on the ground, which shouldn’t damage the mattress, though it might make it harder to get in and out of the bed. You should also check your mattress warranty for foundation suggestions, as some warranties can be voided if you aren’t using the recommended base.
