What is a Single Sided Mattress?

Also known as “No Turn” mattresses, the Single Sided Mattress is a type of mattress that only allows one side to be used for sleeping. This is because the comfort layer of these mattresses is present only on the top side, which means that it cannot be flipped. Therefore, should any wear or tear occur, it is bound to happen in the same place. However, rotating the head of your mattress to the foot once in a while can help keep your mattress in great condition and extend its life.

Pros of Single Sided Mattresses

1. Different Designs 

As mentioned, the single sided mattress has one side that is padded. This surface layer functions as the sleep surface and is topped with materials such as memory foam which are soft and cradling and offer great amounts of cushioning. This layer is also supported by a high-density base for optimal support. 

2. Durability 

Durability should be one of the key considerations when looking for a new mattress. When it comes to understanding the durability and longevity of a mattress, it is crucial to look into the material it is made of and how it’s going to be used. As mentioned, one-sided mattresses are made to be used on just one side. Hence, it is common to see manufacturers producing single sided mattresses with high-density foam that is more durable and does not sag quickly. 

There's no question that mattresses come with varying lifespans depending on their design, layers and construction. Our premium, natural latex mattresses can last up to 10 years on average, while our memory foam mattresses can provide up to 12-15 years of long-lasting comfort and support. Of course, if you take proper care of your mattress, it will keep its shape and support for longer.

3. Comfort

Single sided mattress comes with different construction and materials such as all-foam model, pocketed spring or latex. One sided mattresses have a sleep surface made from a thick piece of foam, providing extra comfort. Other advantages include improved airflow, comfy cushioning and pressure relief.

4. Wide Range of Varieties 

Do you have individuals in your household who each have different needs when it comes to mattresses? Perhaps one wants more support and the other prefers a softer feel? No matter what your needs are, we've got you covered with our range of one-sided mattresses. Some of the options available include the pocketed spring, memory foam, bonnell spring, latex, and foam.

How to Counteract the Flip Issue of Single Sided Mattresses

One of the cons for single sided mattresses is that they are non-flippable because of its thickness level and the springs and foam attached to one side. A two-sided, on the other hand, has two sides, both of which can be used interchangeably to mitigate wear and tear.

However, that does not mean that one-sided mattresses are never a good option. To avoid dips in the single sided mattresses, you can rotate your single sided mattress every 3 months. Doing so will help prevent uneven wear and sagging, particularly when only you sleep on one side of the bed for a long time.
