New Mattress or New Mattress Topper? Knowing the Difference

If you wake up feeling stiff or have a hard time getting comfortable at night, consider giving your bed and mattress a serious upgrade. It may just be more affordable than you think.

Many question whether to buy a new mattress topper or purchase an entirely new mattress with box springs. There are a few things to consider when finding the solution that best suits your budget and sleeping needs.

A Short-Term Solution

A mattress pad can be a very affordable, and comfortable fix to a restless night of sleep. Toppers generally range from $100 – $500, with each providing a unique sleeping experience. Most are foam-based, but there are also specialty mattress pads that include gel memory foam as well as cooling technology. Mattress pads go on top of your mattress and can quickly alter the feel of your bed until your finances allow you to purchase a new mattress.

Although toppers can provide an easy solution to a more comfortable mattress for the short term, their support and softness will fade over time. Since we’re able to buy mattresses in bulk, we can set you up with an entirely new bed at unbeatable and incomparable prices. Swing by one of our stores and let us help you find the best mattress at an incredible value.

Investing in the Long Run

If you are having difficulty sleeping or are simply in desperate need of a change, a new mattress can help provide you with the sleep you need. If you know your mattress is past its prime, explore some newer options including a technology temperature regulation system within the mattress called TempActiv™.

Different from a topper, the comfort of a new mattress is not found directly on the surface; it is found within the structure of the inside, which won’t be fixed with a mattress pad on top. Layers of springs, memory foam and padding are what truly provide the mattress support one needs to achieve a good night’s sleep.

Whether you are looking for a quick remedy or a long-term resolution, updating your bed with at a price you can afford is always a good idea. You can explore mattresses and sleep accessories at one of our Mattress Firm locations in your area.
