Two Sided Mattresses
Is there a great benefit to flipping your mattress? Absolutely! Is it totally necessary? Well, that's up to you. These days, you'll often find stores offering mattresses that are only one sided and cannot be flipped. Depending on quality and support level, one sided mattresses will usually need to be replaced after around 10 years of every day use. One sided mattresses often don't last as long as a mattress that can be flipped, being that they have one sleeping surface rather than two sleeping surfaces. In turn, that means generally you'll be back into a mattress store to buy another mattress sooner if you decide to buy a one sided mattress instead of a two sided mattress. Couples who are different in size and proportion will greatly benefit from a two sided mattress, being able to regularly flip and rotate that mattress to be broken in evenly over time.
Typically, a two sided, flippable mattress will last 3-8 years longer than a one sided mattress. A bedding manufacturer will highly recommend a regular rotation or flip schedule for you mattress, usually every 30 days. If you are financially able to invest more in to a two sided mattress, you will be happier in the long run and have that mattress nearly twice as long as a one sided mattress.
