Which Mattresses Can You Flip?

Which mattresses can you flip?

Flipping your mattress is when you turn your mattress over, so you are using the other side of the mattress that is at the bottom and giving the top of the mattress that you have been sleeping on a break. Flipping the mattress lets you slumber on both sides of the mattress.  Rotating your mattress implies turning your mattress around. This means your head side of the mattress will now be at the end of the bed where your feet usually go and the part of the mattress that your feet were is now at the end where your head will be. 

What are the different types of mattresses?

  • Innerspring
  • Memory Foam 
  • Hybrid 
  • Latex
  • Airbed 

Can you flip a hybrid mattress?

Hybrid mattresses are not made to be flipped. If you were to flip a hybrid mattress then you would have the innerspring system as the surface, you sleep on. This is because the hybrid mattress is made up of two layers the memory foam or latex layer and the innerspring layer, the innerspring layer is to provide support to the mattress and the memory foam and latex layer is to provide comfort, so sleeping on the innerspring layer isn’t going to be very pleasant. What you should do instead is rotate your hybrid mattress every 6 month and even every 3-6 months if you are sharing your bed with someone else. 

Can you flip an innerspring mattress?

A classic innerspring mattress can be flipped or rotated this is because this type of mattress is created with the same materials at the top and bottom.  You should flip or rotated your innerspring mattress after every season just to keep the mattress cleaner and last for longer. 

Can you flip a latex mattress?

You can flip or rotate a latex mattress if you feel as if the mattress is being exposed to unusual compression or wear and tear. Its optional to flip a latex mattress this is because latex mattress are made with rubber and they spring back into their initial shape after being flattened.

Can you flip a memory foam mattress?

You should not flip your memory foam mattress this is because the comfortable memory foam layer is placed at the top of the mattress and isn’t replicated at the bottom. So, if you were to flip the mattress you would be sleeping on the harder, more uncomfortable surface of the mattress. Alternatively rotating your mattress will be a better option.

Can you flip an airbed?

You shouldn’t flip air mattress unless it suggested by the seller. Most of the new mattress are nit deigned to be flipped over, and are made to be one sided. This means that the mattress has only one side that is meant to be slept on.
