Why Should I Invest In A Double Sided Mattress? Do They Last As Long As A Single Side Mattress?

Double Sided Mattresses were thought to be a thing of the past. At Roanoke Mattress we are proud to be one of the few retailers in the Roanoke Valley that offer mattresses that have the ability to be flipped. Here are some helpful tips to consider when searching for a double sided mattress.

Does Double Sided Mean Better Quality?

A double sided mattress can extend the longevity of your mattress. The ability to flip your mattress can lead to more even wear, especially in a pillowtop mattress. The durability of your mattress really comes down to the materials used in the manufacturing process. If a mattress is double sided but has an inferior coil support system and utilizes cheap foams and fibers than it will not last as long as a single sided mattress that uses premium foams, and coils. It's all about the ingredients! 

No mattress, unless you are talking about an all natural latex mattress, will hold its original form completely. A double sided mattress can help prolong the longevity of the foams used in your mattress, by promoting even wear. The most likely mattress to sag is a pillowtop, Double Sided Pillowtop Mattresses, can be extremely beneficial for heavier people, or for those who like to sit on the edge of the mattress.

Pros & Cons

Double Sided Mattress Pros & Cons, Roanoke Mattress

Like every mattress on the market, there are some advantages and disadvantages to purchasing a double sided mattress.


  1. Double Sided Mattresses tend to last longer. If your mattress begins to sag or show body impressions on one side you can flip it, and use the other side. When all things are equal (feel, construction, cost) a double sided mattress is a smart investment.

  2. Materials do not breakdown as quickly. Body impressions are very normal, but a sag in your mattress is a reason for a warranty claim. With double sided mattresses materials can settle more easily, which promotes even wear.

  3. Choice! You have the choice to flip your mattress. With single sided mattresses what you see is what you get. Roanoke Mattress believes, customers should have the option to utilize both sides of their mattress.
