Manufacturers of beds have long been searching for ways to improve sleep comfort. They tried to improve this by changing the type of mattress until they found that innerspring mattresses were a good way to ensure good sleep. This specific type of mattress was challenged by water beds or air beds, yet it stood the tests of time and still remains a well utilized mattress. But, there was a specific mattress that made some people turn to it instead of the classic innerspring.
It was named memory foam by some or just simply foam by other manufacturers. Tempur-Pedic, a known mattress manufacturer, has been the first to make a mattress out of foam. After that, there were others that duplicated the process. One of them has created the Sleep Innovations Novaform Mattress. Sleep Innovations were one of the first companies to introduce the term “memory foam” as the material they use for creating some of their mattresses. Comparing these two brands should provides with an answer to which one is better.
The Sleep Innovations Novaform Mattress is 12 inch thick which provides a good level of comfort and durability. Also, there is a top layer that is about 3 inches thick which is composed of temperature-sensitive material. The foundation of this mattress is made by the rest 9 inches. This whole layer is made out of high density foam which is pretty much a standard today.
TempurPedic has a different approach by using a multiple layer construction which actually combines different base materials. This, translated into plain English, means that the costumer is actually buying a sort of semi customized mattress when choosing a TempurPedic.
Both companies “brag” about their mattress’s ability to absorb the user’s weight and mold to the contour of his/her body. This translates into a better and more restful sleep. Soon after the user stops using the mattress, the foam will return to its original shape and be ready for a new use.
Another thing that both companies tried to add to their mattresses is the ability to continually use a mattress without having to turn it on the other side at any time.
What can be said when it comes to the cost of these mattresses?
Novaform is a much cheaper mattress than any Tempur Pedic mattress. A Novaform mattress can easily be found somewhere around $600 if you look around. The Novaform Pure Comfort Queen size mattress can be found at prices ranging from $550 to $800. You must also be careful and check before buying if the prices you see are for mattress only because in some cases, the box spring is not included.
Tempur Pedic mattresses will be anywhere from twice the price or even 5 times the price of a Novaform! This is usually not a brand for someone with a more lower budget. For example, if you want to buy a Tempur Pedic classic king mattress set you will have to pay around $2300. For a Tempur Pedic Tempur Cloud Luxe Queen you will need $3700. Depending on the actual product, you will have to pay anywhere from $1500 to $3000 or more.
