5 reasons why you should invest in a hybrid mattress

Did you know that the average lifespan of a mattress is approximately 7 years? It is crucial to replace your mattress every 6-8 years to ensure that it still provides the support you require for a good night’s sleep.

There are many different mattress options available, from pocket sprung to memory foam and now hybrid mattresses. Simba hybrid mattresses give you the best of both worlds and the option we recommend you go for. 

What is a Hybrid Mattress?

A hybrid mattress combines a pocket-sprung mattress with a top layer of memory foam, latex, or gel. Hybrid mattresses combine the advantages of each mattress type, providing spring support while also retaining the softness of foam or latex. The end result is a mattress that gives you good support while reducing motion transmission and increasing comfort.

Read on for the top 5 reasons why you should buy a hybrid mattress.

1. There’s more sleeping space

Most hybrid mattresses have built-in edge support, so you have more sleeping space without worrying about rolling out of bed.

2. There’s reduced motion transfer

No need to worry if you or your partner fidget or move a lot in their sleep, with a hybrid mattress, there is little to no motion transfer due to the different layers that make up the hybrid mattress.

3. Suitable for all sleeping positions

Hybrid mattresses are suitable for all types of sleepers. Whether you sleep on your back, side or front, a hybrid mattress will give you balanced support and comfort.

4. You’ll feel cool

Older memory foam mattresses are known for retaining heat, causing you to feel hot when sleeping; hybrid mattresses, on the other hand, are more temperature-regulated due to their innerspring core. This allows the mattress to breathe and can transmit heat up to 30% more effectively than standard memory foam. This will prevent you from overheating through the night.

5. Supports joints and back

Most hybrid mattresses have a core of coils which are layered beneath the foam layer. This combination helps those with issues with their joints and back. The foam moulds to your body, relieving pressure, and the coils provide support. 

What to consider when choosing a hybrid mattress

  • Firmness level – mattresses come in a range of firmness levels, from soft to firm. Decide which level suits your needs
  • Comfort layer materials – look into the different layers available for a hybrid mattress (memory foam, latex, polyfoam etc) and research which one you prefer
  • Edge support – Choose a hybrid mattress that has sturdy edge support to prevent the feeling of sinking in or rolling off the edges of the bed
  • Cooling features – If you are prone to overheating at night, look for cooling features such as gel-infused memory foam
  • Durability and Warranty – look into the construction and materials of the mattress to ensure it will provide long-lasting comfort and support. Also, review the manufacturer’s warranty to understand the coverage and protection offered

Getting a restful night’s sleep is imperative for your overall health and well-being, investing in a hybrid mattress will help you well along this journey, so be sure to explore all options that are available to you.
