Even if you are one of those people who only sleep 6 hours per night, you will still end up spending more than a quarter of your life in a bed. And the truth is that having a good quality bed is not even about how much time you spend in one, but about the quality of your sleep. More and more medical professionals recommend that you sleep about 8 hours every night, so if you are going to sleep less than that, you need to make sure that it is high quality sleep. There are 2 components that go into good sleep patterns. One is about the way we were programmed to function as human beings: we deep in and out of deep sleep or REM sleep every 20 to 40 minutes, and that cannot be helped. However, the longer you stay in REM sleep, the more 40 minutes cycles you can get, the better rested you will be. And that is where you can influence things because the more comfortable your body will feel, the easier you will slip into that deep sleep. However, the good news is that you do not need to spend more than 1000 dollars for a mattress that will guarantee the quality of your sleep for at least another 20 years. In fact we are going to show you some excellent models that cost way less than that. However, it is not only about the price, it is also about the quality of the sleep you can get, so make sure to scroll past the following list with our top 10 best mattresses under $1000 choices to check out the in depth analysis we have done for each one.
1. Dynasty Mattress Luxury Grand Memory Foam Mattress
The absolute best mattress you can buy for under 1000 dollars today is the Dynasty Mattress Luxury Grand Memory Foam Mattress. It is a top of the end mattress from every view point you care to consider it from. It has 3 thin top layers of memory foam, each one of anywhere between 1.5 and 1 inches thick. It is important to have successive layers because each successive one offers support for the indentation on top of it, and that increases the firmness of the mattress while maintaining the softness and luxurious feel. Ultimately you have a forth layer of memory foam that is 4 inches thick and that offers the bulk of the support and comfort. Underneath that you have 2 layers of breathable material that make the mattress both cool and comfortable. Finally there is a layer of PU foam base that provides the structural resistance to the entire mattress. The top of the mattress is nothing less than the most comfortable and luxurious sued leather. And the entire thing is fire safe because of a fire barrier layer that protects the foam base. So there you have it, the best mattress on the market, coming in eastern king size, that is 76 by 80 inches, so you, your wife, and the family dogs can enjoy a relaxing sleep and still have room to spare in the bed for a TV picnic.
2. Sleep Innovations SureTemp Memory Foam Mattress
There is no doubt that the Dynasty Mattress is the best mattress on the market today, but it is also true that, for a comfortable sleep, you do not need that many layers of memory foam. They are great, but the fact that the Sleep Innovations SureTemp Memory Foam Mattress has a top layers of 2.5 inches of memory foam supported by another 9.5 inches of support foam, makes it an excellent choice and provides just the right level of support. And the most important thing is that it cost little over half the price of the Dynasty Mattress, and it is still a pretty impressive queen size mattress, which is to say 60 inches by 80. So it still makes for a pretty big bed, more than enough for even a big couple to sleep comfortably.
3. Beautyrest Recharge Luxury Firm Mattress
The great fact about the world of mattresses is that they are a very competitive market and there are innovations being developed every year. So if you have the money for it, there is actually something on the market today that is even more impressive than the Dynasty Mattress. If you want to stay below the 1,000 dollars limit, you will need to buy the Beautyrest Recharge Luxury Firm Mattress in its queen size form. It has an air cooled memory foam layer that is enriched with a micro gel system that makes it even more comfortable, and that retains more of your body’s shape. However where the Beautyrest luxury mattress really excels, is in the fact that the memory foam is also air cooled so you do not need the extra layer of breathable material, and in fact that air flows right through under your body, so the feeling of cool freshness is even more intense.
4. Best Price Mattress Memory Foam Mattress
Obviously when a manufacturer brags about their price point, you know that the quality is not going to be so impressive, and that is exactly the case with the Best Price Mattress 12-Inch Memory Foam Mattress. It has a layer of plush foam, right on top, that protects the memory foam layer which is just 3 inches thick. Of course entire mattress will not feel as comfortable as the other mattresses on our list so far, but the truth is that memory foam really is an excellent fabric for mattresses and, even in when used in such a thin layer, it still provides an excellent level of support. The one really impressive thing about the Best Price Mattress Memory Foam Mattress is the fact that they infused the memory foam with natural anti fungi and anti bacterial properties like green tea and charcoal so you get a mattress that is not only closer to nature, but it actually smells better than most mattresses and retains that feeling of newness for a longer time.
5. Beautyrest Recharge Manorville Luxury Firm Mattress
If you like the idea of using the latest technologies even when it comes to your sleeping area, but cannot afford the Beautyrest mattress we have already featured, you have a second chance with the Beautyrest Recharge World Class Manorville Luxury Firm Mattress. It has the same layers of air cooled memory foam enriched with a micro gel, but they layers are thinner, which helps drop the price considerably. Still the mattress feels incredibly comfortable and we think it would be an excellent on a budget choice for anyone of our readers.
6. Simmons Beautyrest Luxury Firm Mattress
Sometimes third party sellers can be an excellent choice because they can get a lot of units of a product at a major discount, cut into their profit margin and sell for a better price than the original manufacturer. As far as we can see the Simmons Beautyrest Luxury Firm Mattress is actually the Manorville we have just talked about, but because it is sold through the Simmons brand it is actually cheaper. In any case, the mattress we have tested felt incredibly comfortable and luxurious and we would recommend it just as much as we would recommend the Manorville.
7. Beautyrest Recharge Luxury Firm Mattress
As the name itself suggests, the Beautyrest Recharge Luxury Firm Mattress is actually the original mattress design that Beatyrest came up with when they started using memory foam. They have then improved on the design with the Manorville mattress, but you can still buy the original. We would actually go with the Simmons version, but if you want to have the original then this is your chance.
8. Brentwood Home Gel HD Memory Foam Mattress
The good news is that Beautyrest is not the only mattress manufacturer on the market and the Brentwood Home 13-Inch Gel HD Memory Foam Mattress is an excellent alternative to even their top of the line mattress. It uses a 3 inch layer of memory foam, infused with a gel that allows the memory foam to breathe and feel more cool and comfortable to the touch. It is actually the same technology but they took it one step further because they used a natural wool exterior and a bamboo cover that goes with the mattress.
9. Signature Sleep 13 Inch Mattress
If you are wondering what people slept on before memory foam, or just do not feel that memory foam is really worth the money, you can have what we think is the best of the old school style of making mattresses. The Signature Sleep 13 Inch Mattress uses an old fashion foam right on the surface but underneath that you have a layer of coils. The thing that makes the Signature Sleep mattress worthy of a modern bedroom is the fact that the coils are placed in individual pockets so you cannot compress one without compressing the one next to it. The result is a mattress that follows the countours of your body instead of just sinking in wherever you are heavier and letting your lighter parts like your arms and head float up. It really feels quite comfortable and we must not forget that it costs almost a third of what the top end mattresses we have featured here cost.
10. Dreamfoam Bedding Ultimate Top Mattress
We are going to end our list of the top 10 best mattresses under $1,000 with what is the cheapest, comfortable mattress on the market, the Dreamfoam Bedding Ultimate Top Mattress. It uses a slightly modified type of mattress foam, which they call Tri-Zone. It is not actually memory foam, but it does feel quite comfortable and provides just the right level of support for a comfortable night’s sleep. The point is that you should not even consider anything cheaper than the Dreamfoam Bedding mattress because you will end up seriously compromising your sleep, whereas with this one you actually do get a comfortable night’s rest, and a relatively low price.
