A mattress is the most important, and typically one of the most expensive components of the bed, so even if it's a foam mattress, it's essential to protect your investment with mattress pads or mattress toppers. They not only protect your mattress, they help to provide a more restful night's sleep.
Whether you have a foam mattress or a conventional mattress, a mattress pad is an essential part of any bedding ensemble. Mattress pads protect any mattress from dust, stains and general wear and tear; they prolong mattress life and also can be used to refresh an older mattress. Mattress pads can be laundered often - sheets look and feel better on a mattress pad instead of directly on the mattress, and mattress pads are available for even the deepest of mattresses. Mattress toppers add an extra layer of comfort along with protection, providing head, neck and back support; Generally incorporating some type of foam or memory foam, they are often designed to reduce pressure points and to better distribute motion transfer so that both you and your sleep partner awake refreshed.
