TempurPedic vs Novaform Mattresses

If TempurPedic sets the benchmark for memory foam mattresses, Novaform Mattresses surely set the standard among discount brands. It certainly helps that the biggest retail venue for Novaform is Costco, one of the biggest bargain superstores in North America. Combine its Costco relationship with low prices and a fair product built by Sleep Innovations with its big-reputation and attention to detail and it becomes obvious why Novaform is such a huge success, both for Costco and Sleep Innovations. As for the consumer, Novaform offers an attractive value proposition, particularly when you line it up next to TempurPedic. And that is exactly what we have done here.

What makes this comparison a little different than others in this series is that we are looking at two different Novaform products – one is a traditional memory foam mattress while the second is a gel-infused memory foam mattress. This makes the comparison difficult to use; still we thought we would include the Gel Bed here since we pit the Serta iComfort up against the TempurPedic elsewhere.

TempurPedic vs Novaform Mattresses – The True Comparison

When it comes to overall quality, the TempurPedic definitely has the upper hand when compared to the Novaform Pure Comfort. However, buyers are paying quite the premium to enjoy that greater overall quality that the TempurPedic offers. Is it worth that kind of premium? Tough to say, but for someone who is new to memory foam Mattress Comparisonmattresses (i.e. someone who has never owned one or slept on one before), the Novaform Pure Comfort sure lowers the financial and sleep risks that come with trying something new.

Where the Novaform Gel Memory Foam Mattress enters the picture is as a good alternative to all three products presented here. Why? Because a lot of people have problems with traditional memory foam mattresses… regardless of what they cost. The most common memory foam mattress complaints we have discovered include Comfort, Quality and Sagging. While both the Novaform and TempurPedic rate semi-well with sagging, they both rate low when it comes to comfort and perceived quality; the Novaform Gel Memory Foam Mattress not only offers an alternative, but a potential solution (the Serta iComfort rates well in all three areas).

Keeping the above in mind, this TempurPedic vs Novaform Mattresses comparison is more than just simple reference chart. In fact, it is more of a suggestion chart depending on what characteristics are important to you. For example, if cost is a big issue, then you can skip over to the Novaform side and if comfort is important to you, then focus on the Novaform Gel Memory Foam Mattress.
