Choosing the right one can make all the difference when it comes to comfort because mattresses provide the foundation for sleep, reminds the team at Essential Rentals.

Your mattress needs to provide support for your back and joints, promote good alignment, and cushion against pressure points and pain. But, sleeping on a bed that is wrong for you can affect your rest by creating pain, tension or other problems and you simply don’t want that. We often get these questions from our customers:

  • How do I choose the right mattress type?
  • What is the right mattress type for me?
  • What type of mattress should I choose?

So our team at Essential Rentals decided to write this post and help you with selecting the right mattress type for you. We know how valuable a good nights sleep is!

How to choose the perfect Mattress

If you are looking around for a mattress, you may have noticed there are a lot of options out there. It can also seem a bit confusing and we want to make the experience of a new bed and mattress that you are renting from us as comfortable as possible.

Hybrid mattresses are built with a combination of latex, memory, polyurethane foams, coils, and maybe even other materials. One example is a combination of latex and memory foam. This allows for a great bounce, cooling, and responsiveness via the latex, but the memory foam can still provide the needed pressure relief and support. Hybrid beds are best for those who want the best of all worlds and are a very good choice for most people.



By now, you have almost definitely heard of memory foam. A memory foam bed gives astonishing support, pressure relief, and body contouring. In the past, memory foam mattresses were troubled by poor temperature control and ended up being too hot. But, now most memory foams are designed with that in mind, so they are cool. These are great for anyone with back pain or wants something that will mold specifically to them.



Coils have been traditionally the most popular and broadly used bed type. They consist of one or more layers of spring coils, usually made out of steel, that provides the support and comfort. The more coils the mattress has, the better it will feel. These are really ideal for those of us who are used to the traditional feel of a bed and a coil mattress.

When doing your research on where to rent your new bed and mattress, you will find we match up to top-quality mattress and bed company criteria, and with our customer support, we even go beyond it!
