If you are renovating your house, and buying mattresses for the bedroom is on your list of purchases, the newest offering on the market is the latex mattress. Memory foam mattresses have entirely revolutionized people's idea of comfortable sleep as the latex mattresses take luxury and comfort to a higher level. Makers of furnishing and bedding goods have begun using the latex mattresses more often than ever before. Market surveys have revealed that latex mattresses have replaced memory foam mattresses in terms of popularity in the Europe, if sales figures are anything to judge by. Latex mattresses are made by using synthetically processed latex or different combination of synthetic latex with natural latex.

There are numerous reasons contributing to the popularity of latex foam mattresses. Latex foam mattresses are known to be extremely strong and durable. The core of the mattress is very solid and the mattress itself is so dense that the effects of daily wear and tear are minimal. When the core of the latex foam mattress is built it is made with some apertures in it. These are known as pincore holes and their purpose is to allow the latex to become a little more pliable so that it allows for a greater degree of comfort. The number of holes and the size of the holes are directly proportional to the level of comfort offered by the mattress so most companies focus on making the pincore holes as large as is possible. In order to achieve homogeneity in the level of comfort offered across the length and breadth of the mattress the pincore holes through the mattress are all kept at the same size.

For those who want the bed to have a softer feel than that offered by the mattresses there exists the option of layering the latex mattress along with other materials. Many people choose to use a latex mattress along with a memory foam mattress for firm yet comfortable sleep.

In comparison to the memory foam mattresses the advantage offered by the mattresses is that the latter is firmer and offers a greater degree of support to the body. Since these mattresses do not have springs like conventional coir mattresses and are stronger from the inside than foam mattresses they are currently one of the best items available in the market.
