Mattress Buying Guide

Shopping for a mattress can’t be too hard, right?

Considering that there are at least fifteen common types of mattresses, from memory foam to latex and everything in between, in varying sizes, prices, etc., the process can indeed be hard. Literally — the last thing you want to do is get a mattress so firm it feels like sleeping in the Flintstone’s cave house.

Buying the Right Mattress

Furniture Market in Grand Prairie put together this mattress buying guide to help you as you shop around for comfortable and affordable mattresses. Come on into our furniture warehouse in Grand Prairie today to get a great deal on mattresses and other bedroom furniture.

1. Memory Foam Mattresses

Memory foam mattresses are the ones that conform to your body as you sleep. They can be a great option for couples who have different sleeping preferences, as the mattress conforms to each person.


They can be especially comfortable for individuals who sleep on their sides, as the foam contours against the body and provides better support than a rigid firm mattress.

Another benefit of memory foam mattresses involves durability. Most of these mattresses have layers and layers of foam, so they tend to stay flat as they age rather than sagging in the middle.


These mattresses can tend to be on the pricey side, as they are incredibly durable and well-made. Luckily, Furniture Market in Grand Prairie carries all types of mattresses at affordable prices, so stop by our warehouse and see the deals you can get on top-quality mattresses.

2. Pillow top mattresses

Pillow top was named appropriately because they are incredibly soft — sleeping on a pillow top mattress indeed feels like sleeping on a fluffy, soft pillow. This is because they feature an added layer of cushion to the top of your mattress.


Another great option for side sleepers, pillow top mattresses support your body while allowing you to sink into the mattress for a comfortable night’s sleep.

You can choose how soft you want your pillow top mattress to be, so you don’t have to worry about feeling totally unsupported as you sleep.


Pillow top mattresses are not considered firm, so they are not the best option for those with chronic back pain or injury.

3. Innerspring Mattresses

Unlike memory foam mattresses, innerspring mattresses rely on springs rather than foam for support. The more springs a mattress has, the more support it typically offers. The placement of coils also makes a difference in terms of how firm versus conforming the mattress will be.


Innerspring mattresses are an excellent, more affordable option for side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers. Because they come in so many coil configurations and spring shapes, you can really get the mattress you want if you shop around.


Innerspring mattresses tend to sag after they have been used for awhile, as opposed to foam, latex, and pillow top mattresses. They also tend to be creakier and noisier, as the springs provide a bounce.

4. Latex mattresses

The new trend in the mattress industry, latex beds are made from natural latex and combine affordability and durability.


Latex is a naturally occurring fiber, so you don’t have to worry about chemicals and a hefty carbon footprint. Plus, latex mattresses are generally comfortable and durable.


Like memory foam mattresses, latex mattresses can tend to be expensive. They’re a significant investment, but one that might be worth it if you have the budget.

Finding a furniture warehouse

Ordering mattresses online has its advantages, but there’s nothing like trying out a mattress at a furniture warehouse. It’s one of the few places where you’re welcomed to test out the products and make yourself at home. If one mattress doesn’t feel great, you can skip right over to the next to test that one out. Plus, you have a knowledgeable sales staff that can recommend the right mattress for you based on your sleep position, desired comfort level, and budget.
