With the advent of the no flip one-sided mattress the 2-sided mattress has become little more than a memory.
- The fact that a mattress doesn’t have to be flipped is highly touted by many salesmen and for a very good reason. Anyone who has ever tried to flip a king size mattress in a small bedroom with a ceiling fan knows the difficultly in having to flip a mattress over.
- The wholesale cost of producing a one sided mattress should be less since it requires less materials and only one fire retarding barrier. Because of stricter fire retardantcy laws it is approximately 40 percent cheaper to fire proof one side of a mattress as apposed to the older styled mattresses with 2 sides.
- Apples to apples retail prices of one-sided mattresses should also reduce the retail cost that the customer would have to pay. See # 2
- Better quality materials should go into a one sided mattress since comfort layers are only on one side of the mattress.
- One-sided mattresses as a rule seem to weigh less making them easier to handle.
- One sided mattress manufacturers are using more quality materials such as Omalon, latex rubber, and visco elastic memory foam.
- There are lot of choices of one-sided beds. Mattress manufacturers still offer the same great choices in comfort. Such styles as plush, firm, pillow top mattresses are just some of the choices you have when purchasing a one sided bed.
- You can still use your old bedding inventory like mattress pad, comforter, and sheets saving you the expense of having to purchase new ones.
- One-sided mattress choices still offer a wider variety of price ranges to appeal to mattress buyers than 2-sided beds, by offering everything from small to large budgets in mind.
- Life expectancy of a one sided mattress can range from 1 year to 30 years depending on the quality & budget. Better mattresses will obviously last longer. Well-trained sales associates can help you with such things.
