Mattresses that You Should Definitely Consider Buying

Mattresses are such underrated pieces of furniture. I say that because when you think about it, it is the most used piece of furniture in our homes. We spend as much as a third of our day laying on one or 1/4 if we are pressed for time due to busy school or work schedules. If you are thinking of buying a new mattress, don’t buy one without doing some reading and looking out for the best product. You will thank yourself later when you get the best mattress for your money and if you get a dud, you will regret it if there is no return policy.

One of the things that you should do when you are about to buy a mattress is to read online mattress reviews. The best mattresses will always have reviews online and these reviews will help you in your search for a new mattress. Mattress review sites such as, reviews from Amazon and reviews from other sources will always be helpful in your search as these will help you determine which ones are good and which ones are duds.

Having said all that, here are some of my recommended mattresses and I will explain why I chose them.


Spring mattresses are still very common to this day and I still love them so I have one in my guest room. I sometime take a nap there and the mattress is still very comfortable.

The one that I recommend is the Dreamfoam Bedding Pocketed coil mattress. It costs a little over $500 and it is great for that price tag. It is 12 inches thick and it is made in the USA. As a bonus, it is a hybrid innerspring-memory foam mattress, meaning that the support system is made of coils and the comfort layer utilizes memory foam so you get the best of both worlds when it comes to this mattress.

The coils in the mattress are pocketed coils and there are 750 of them, which is a good number of springs in order to provide good support. I have had this mattress for over 4 years now and I must say, it holds up pretty good. It is still very comfortable and when I take a nap on it sometimes, I always wake up without any issues like back aches, numbing, shoulder pain etc. It is a great mattress for the price and if you want an innerspring, this should be on your list.

Memory Foam

Memory foam is my personal favorite. I have one that I use every night in my bedroom and it is the best for me. It is so comfortable with the way that it envelopes my body as I sleep. It is definitely one of the best purchases that I have ever made.

The memory foam that I recommend is the DynastyMattress Cool Breeze. It costs a little under $400 and it is quite surprising how a cheap mattress like this can be so wonderful. It is 12 inches thick and the foams have gone through something called CERTIPUR certification. I don’t really know about that but I’m guessing that it is a good thing. The memory foam in the mattress is 3 inches and it is called “gel memory foam” and it is supposed to help the mattress to stay cool. So far, I haven’t experienced any heat while I sleep so it must be doing its job.

This is a great mattress and I never would have considered buying it if it wasn’t for online reviews. It is very cheap and I don’t usually trust products that are cheap. However, reading some of the reviews about this mattress made me consider it and I eventually bought it because I was convinced of its good performance and I wanted to save some cash. It was a great decision.


Latex, I’m not really familiar with. I’ve only ever tried one and I don’t own it so I can’t really talk much about its quality. I once slept over at a friends house and his guest room bed had a latex mattress in it. It was great for the time I spent there and I actually asked my friend about it and he tells me that he really likes it and the one in his main bedroom is the same make and model.

This latex mattress is called the Roma latex mattress. It’s an all latex mattress that is quite expensive at over $700.  From what I tried, I liked it but I don’t think I’ll be buying it anytime soon just because it is too expensive for me but if you have the budget and you like latex, you should definitely have a look at it.

These three mattresses are what I consider to be the best when you are on a budget, at least from what I have owned and tried. Of course, there may be better mattresses out there but since I am not a professional reviewer, I can’t try them all. If you noticed, I don’t have a recommendation for air mattresses. The reason for that is that I haven’t owned one and have no plans of buying one in the near future. I think that air mattresses are very expensive, at least the ones that I know of that I think are worth buying. I only know of Sleep Number and if I am not mistaken, their beds cost thousands of dollars and I don’t have that kind of money.
