The disadvantages of cold foam

In this blog we tell you about the disadvantages of cold foam. That is not so easy, because bed specialists agree: there are few disadvantages to this material. However, cold foam mattresses are not suitable for everyone, because they feel a little less soft and bouncy, are quite heavy and always need a protective cover.

What exactly is a cold foam mattress? No, it is not an extra cold mattress, although the name might suggest so. This material takes its name from the method of production: the foam is poured into cold molds instead of warm ones. The official name of cold foam is 3D Polyethane foam. The most important property of this material? The resilience! Due to the open structure of the cold foam cells, the foam allows air and moisture to pass through as soon as force is exerted on it. The honeycomb structure also ensures that the material ventilates well and is nice and cool.

Does cold foam also have disadvantages?

However, there are also disadvantages of cold foam and such a mattress is not suitable for everyone. The foam feels firm. That is of course very nice for sleepers who like that. But do you prefer not to have a firm mattress and do you prefer a softer bed? Then it is better to choose a different type of material. Memory foam , for example. And do you prefer a very bouncy mattress? Then the cold foam variant is not your best option.

In addition, you always need a protective cover with a cold foam mattress. This is not always the case with a pocket spring mattress, for example. Due to the open structure of the foam cells, it is important that moisture does not enter the mattress. But if you see no objections to a protective cover, the quality of your mattress will always remain good.

Heavy mattress

One of the last disadvantages of cold foam is the weight of the mattress. Most cold foam mattresses are quite heavy. This has to do with the density of the foam. The higher the density, the more resilient the mattress. But also: the heavier the mattress. This can be difficult if you want to turn a mattress on your own. To keep the quality of a mattress as good as possible, it is important that you turn it over once a month or at least four times a year. See here how you can best maintain your mattress yourself.

Who is a cold foam mattress suitable for?

We mentioned it before: besides the disadvantages of cold foam, there are many more advantages. For example, a cold foam mattress is very suitable if you are looking for a little more support. And do you sweat a lot at night? A cold foam mattress is also perfect then! Due to the open structure of the cells, this mattress ventilates very well. Do you get warm quickly at night? You can also opt for a cold foam mattress , because it stays nice and cool all night long. Another advantage is that the mattress lasts a very long time.

Choose the mattress that suits you

Now that you know the advantages and disadvantages of cold foam, you can choose which mattress suits you best. In summary: do you like a firm and cool mattress? Then you go for cold foam. Prefer soft and bouncy? Then you can choose one of the other mattresses that Solo Home offers. How about a memory foam mattress or a pocket spring mattress ?

Would you also opt for a cold foam cushion?

Cold foam pillows have become increasingly popular in recent years and for good reason. These pillows are made of a special type of foam, known for its resilience and durability. The material has an open cell structure, which ensures excellent ventilation and moisture drainage. This makes a cold foam pillow ideal for people who get hot quickly while sleeping.

In addition, cold foam is hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites, making it a good choice for people with allergies. In short, for those looking for a durable, ventilating and supportive pillow, cold foam is definitely worth considering.
