Are you looking for a new mattress? If so, there’s a huge chance that you’ve stumbled upon a latex mattress. While latex foam has been in use for quite some time, it was only until recently that it experienced a surge in popularity, mostly because it is comfortable to use and because of its numerous health benefits.
These are three things that you should know about latex mattresses first before buying a latex mattress in Singapore.
Latex foams are softer than innerspring mattresses, so they contour to the curves of your body and alleviates some of the pressure. This is great for improving the quality of your sleep.
In that way, latex foams are similar with memory foam mattresses. However, the main difference is that latex foams are more responsive than regular ones. Whereas memory foam mattresses take long to adjust to your body and return to its natural form after you get up, latex foams do it near-instantaneously.
This makes latex beds great for relieving pressure points while also helping you avoid the sinking feeling commonly associated with memory foam mattresses.
Your bed is where you spend a lot of your life in. You sleep on it for at least eight hours a day, every day, after all. But, sometimes, while the bed is where you relax, it’s also the cause for your skin allergies and allergic rhinitis. Allergy sufferers know this all too well, and most often just choose to suffer from it and drink medicine in the morning if necessary.
Latex is naturally anti-microbial and hypoallergenic, making it an excellent choice for those with allergies, asthma, and other breathing problems that are only made worse by allergies. In fact, even people who reportedly have latex allergy can sleep well in a latex foam mattress with little to no issues.
Most people associate latex foams with a high price tag, which is not true. There are plenty of budget-options when it comes to latex foam mattresses, as many as there are higher-priced choices as well.
Generally, the choice when it comes to latex foam mattresses comes between Dunlop latex and Talalay latex. The former is firmer and the more affordable of the two because it’s created via a more simplified process which reduces the costs. The latter, meanwhile, is created via a more complicated and expensive process, which results in a higher price tag. However, the added benefit of using a Talalay latex foam mattress is that they are softer and generally more comfortable to sleep in.
There are even latex foam mattresses that combine the two types; using the firmer Dunlop latex as the base foam and topping it off with the softer Talalay latex.
So, regardless of whether you’re looking for a single-size or a queen size mattress in Singapore, rest assured that you’re going to find a latex foam mattress that will suit your needs and preferences.
