Mattress Trends You Can’t Sleep On

1. Beds Get Eco-Friendly

Expect a greener mattress—literally. The mattress industry is growing exponentially but sustainably so.

More and more mattress manufacturers and top brands are exploring plant-based materials within their mattress layers, replacing harsher and potentially skin-irritating materials and chemicals. We’ve already seen a rise in the popularity of bamboo bed linens, but you might also find bamboo or aloe vera in your mattress in the not-so-far future.

Eco-friendly mattresses leave a smaller carbon footprint, and plant-based materials offer a wide range of health and sleep benefits. They’re breathable, able to dispel heat faster than synthetic materials, and are hypoallergenic and skin-loving.  These new mattress innovations cater to both earth and health-conscious customers.

Are plant-based materials better? Not necessarily, but they may be healthier, more eco-conscious options over potentially toxic materials and chemicals. However, this is an exciting new mattress trend, with mattress manufacturers investing in research and development now more than ever.

2. Snooze and Sneeze

Not only are beds getting more green and eco-friendly but they’re also made to address more and more health issues. Toss the tissue! You might not need them by your bedside table anymore.

Mattress manufacturers are making more beds with organic, naturally hypoallergenic materials. These include latex, cotton, and wool. While these aren’t new materials, more manufacturers are exchanging synthetic materials with organic materials. And Serta has been doing this for years.

Sleepers are growing more health conscious, and because we spend a third of our lives in bed, the warm white spotlight is on the mattress and how it can improve your overall health and well-being. It’s no secret that good sleep is key to good health, but it turns out that what you sleep on is also important.

3. Mattresses Are Going Hybrid

Numerous market researchers aren’t in agreement as to which mattress type dominates the industry globally, but they can all agree on one thing—many sleepers are looking for a hybrid mattress. Again, Serta has been doing this for years.

Hybrid mattresses are the best of all worlds. They combine the versatility of foam mattresses, the pressure-relieving properties of memory foam mattresses, and the sturdiness and durability of innerspring mattresses.

4. Mattresses Go Online

Not a surprise in mattress trends is the rise in online sales, especially for younger shoppers. However, this isn’t to say that brick-and-mortar stores have lost their footing and significance in the market industry.

Physical stores remain dominant, and there are still many benefits that come with visiting a physical store. For example, reading about the benefits of advantages of a mattress is a far cry from testing a mattress yourself. But because getting the perfect snooze should also be a breeze, our online store is live to help you find the mattress of your dreams.

5. Function and Form

Pillows and bed linens now have a dual purpose in the bedroom. Just like your Serta mattress, they’re the new symbol of function and form.

A new mattress trend in the bedding market is the use of pillows and throws as decorative pieces. Now, they’re not just orthopedic bolsters and temperature-regulating pillows, they’re now also statement pieces that help add interest to your bedding and overall bedroom interior design.

Serta’s Own Mattress Innovations

With research and innovation at the forefront of every new mattress, you can expect your Serta mattress to feature the best materials and technologies.

1. Wool Mattress Toppers

Wool is known for its breathability and is a favorite among organic materials, along with cotton and latex. It’s skin-loving and naturally hypoallergenic, making them perfect not only for sleepers that tend to heat up at night but also for sleepers whose snoozes are interrupted by sneezes.

Find wool mattress toppers in Serta premium mattresses like the iBreeze and Athena.

2. Do-All Latex

Latex is another mattress material you will find in many Serta mattresses. It meets and exceeds what you would expect of a mattress—body contouring, pressure relief, and temperature regulation.

Sleepers that want the benefits of memory foam but aren’t a fan of the material gravitate towards latex foam.

Similar to memory foam, it contours and adjusts to the shape of your body, cradling your joints and distributing your weight evenly across the surface. But unlike poor-quality memory foam mattresses, it manages to stay cool while doing it. It doesn’t envelope your body in heat and allows you to sleep comfortably and undisturbed at night.

Organic and hypoallergenic sleepers that are sensitive to common mattress materials will also find comfort in knowing that Serta uses only high-quality fabrics and materials that won’t interrupt your snooze.

3. Serta Has Been Crafting Hybrid Mattresses for Years

Serta hybrid mattresses are made with a pocket spring mattress at the foundation, topped with multiple comfort layers for added pressure relief and spine alignment.

The do-all mattress hits the mark for many sleepers. It’s comfortable yet supportive. And because it’s available in many different comfort levels, it’s also very versatile and caters to a wide range of sleepers.

Serta combines many different mattress types to address different needs and cater to different budgets. And because Serta pours research and development and the latest in mattress trends and innovations in every mattress created, you can get high-quality no matter your budget.

Serta mattresses stay on top of mattress trends and innovations by continuously researching up-and-coming materials and the latest sleep research and developing mattresses with your most particular needs in mind.
