Choosing The Perfect Mattress For An Adjustable Bed

If you are looking for a new mattress for your adjustable bed, there are a few options to consider.  The three main types of mattresses that work great for adjustable beds are memory foam mattresses, latex mattresses and air mattresses.  The main thing you want to keep in mind, is that a lower profile mattress will generally work best with adjustable beds.  If you have back problems you are generally going to want to go with a very firm latex mattress or an adjustable air mattress.  When trying to decide what is the best air mattress for your adjustable bed, you want to really consult with your mattress store or manufacture of your adjustable bed base.

Their are not a lot of traditional air mattress suppliers that work with adjustable bed bases.  Those manufactures that do offer some type of traditional mattress, tend to be quite costly, so you should generally only consider them if you truly need an adjustable firmness bed.  In most cases you should be just fine with either a latex mattress or memory foam mattress, depending on your sleep position and firmness desired.  The other thing to consider is the manufactures warranty of your desired mattress, there are some latex mattresses that come with 25 year warranties and they really will last that long or longer.  Whereas, air mattresses generally either need to be replaced every 10 years or have the internal bladders and padding replaced, which cost nearly as much as the mattress itself.  So, when comparing mattresses you should also consider how long you believe the mattress will last you or how long you intend to sleep on it before replacing it and figure out your cost over that time period.  So, for example even though a latex mattress may cost more money up front, if you have it twice as long as you would have a memory foam mattress, the price difference maybe worth it.
