The standard filling mattress is usually the cheapest style and could be suitable if you have very little money or you want it for a Guest room that will only be used infrequently.
Pocket Spring Mattresses are now the most common form of mattress. The Pocket Spring Mattress is made using many hundreds or even thousands of small metal springs inside the mattress covered with soft material, so you do not feel the springs. This type of mattress has many advantages in that each spring reacts to the individual part of the body giving support where it is needed. This is ideal in that because they are individual springs any movement on one side of the bed will not affect a partner on the other side of the bed.

A further type of mattress is called Memory Foam. There are two very important considerations before choosing a Memory Foam Mattress. They are how comfortable it is and how durable it is.
