Price & Value
Innerspring mattresses are the most common type of mattress we see and use in daily life. Most innerspring mattresses charge very low with a good product value; only a few luxury brands set a very high price because of the handmade craft and rare materials they use.
Innerspring mattresses have about a 6-year lifespan which is comparatively lower than most other mattress types mainly due to the high sagging rate. Because innerspring mattresses often consist of more than two kinds of materials, so this may give them a bigger chance of sagging.
Of all the different types, innerspring mattresses may perform the worst in motion isolation due to the far-too-good bounce. One person's movement will significantly affect the other one on the bed. Models with pocket coil and offset coil have a stronger bouncing than models with continuous or bonnell Coil.
A good bounce may produce a adverse effect on motion isolation function, but it's a huge advantage in term of sex suitability because a good bounce will help maintain rhythm.
Innerspring mattresses have comfort layers made of different materials including polyurethane, fiber, memory foam, latex and mini coils etc. Models with memory foam layers may have a significant problem of off-gassing.
