Everything You Need to Know About Foam Mattresses

Many people are familiar with three types of mattresses: innerspring, latex, and memory foam. But these certainly aren’t your only options when it comes to buying a mattress.


If you have a specialty sized bed or you want more customizable options, oftentimes these three common mattresses won’t cut it. That’s where standard foam mattresses come in.


Standard Foam Mattresses


Our standard foam mattresses at Majestic Mattress are made of polyurethane and are easily customizable. You can order them in any shape and size, so you never have to worry about finding a mattress that fits your unique bed frame. We’ll even make inserts for boat seats and many other specialty shapes.


You can also customize the beds to have specialty coverings, like ultra-soft or health care approved fabrics. Foam mattresses also give you the option to choose your desired firmness, thickness, and profile of the foam.


Polyurethane Foam vs. Memory Foam


Memory foam mattresses are made using polyurethane, so the two types of mattresses are quite similar.


The difference between the two is that memory foam mattresses have extra chemicals that make them feel as though you’re melting into them when you lay down.


Because polyurethane foam beds don’t have these chemicals, they have a bouncy and springy feel to them.


Benefits of Polyurethane Foam Mattresses


Apart from being completely customizable, standard foam mattresses have many upsides to them.


The first is price. These mattresses are budget friendly, so you never have to worry about breaking the bank.


These mattresses encourage spinal alignment. In fact, they approach a similar support level as latex mattresses. Foam beds are great if you often have an achy back because it might help alleviate some of the pain.


In addition to these benefits, foam beds also effectively block dust mites and allergens, making them perfect for those who have allergies.


It’s easy to see why so many people choose to buy foam mattresses. Talk to one of our staff members at Majestic Mattresses to learn more about your foam mattress options. We’re more than happy to help you!
