Novaform vs. Tempur-Pedic Comparison Reviews 2020
You spend a lot of time in bed, up to a third of your life (if you’re getting enough sleep). The mattress you use is critically important for improving the quality of your sleep and and helping you feel more rested. If your current mattress is 10-15 years old, it’s time to take a look at something new. With innovative technologies available in memory foam, innerspring, and hybrid technologies available, you’re sure to find something that offers you improved comfort and support. Tempur-Pedic is almost a household name, particularly known for its memory foam mattresses. However, Novaform is also a quality mattress brand in its own right and much more affordable than Tempur-Pedic. Let’s review the two side-by-side.
- At a glance: More affordable
- Headline: Novaform is a popular brand that produces a wide range of memory foam mattresses. Part of what makes them so popular is their affordable price tag no matter how firm or big the mattress is.
- At a glance: Premium foams
- Headline: For a “mattress like no other”, you’ve got to go with Tempur-Pedic. The Tempur-Pedic mattress responds to body shape, weight, and temperature with 2x more pressure-relieving power than other mattresses.
Before we dive into a deeper comparison between these two mattress brands, here’s a quick synopsis first:
First thing’s first, we will focus on Novaform’s Serafina Pearl firmness since this brand offers lots of mattresses. Besides, this is also the only mattress from Novaform that is available in different firmness levels.
This 14″ gel memory foam mattress contains different layers of foams to ensure its durable construction and longevity. The first layer is a 2-3″ ComfortLuxe Gel-Pearl technology which keeps the mattress cool. Unlike regular memory foam mattresses, it can keep you at your ideal sleeping temperature all night. The second layer is 3″ CustomWave Foam which provides a customized level of comfort and support. This is due to its ability to adapt and respond to your movements even if you’re on your back, side, or stomach. At the same time, it ensures mattress breathability and proper airflow while you sleep.
Now, the third layer is 8-9″ support foam which provides therapeutic support and superior mattress stability. Instead of CustomWave Foam, the Plush version contains LURAcor Air Channel Foam which adds more softness to the top layer. This layer can also contour and respond individually to you and your partner’s movement with unmatched support and weight distribution. The air channels are also designed to enhance comfort level by maintaining the proper airflow through the mattress.
Pressure Point Relief and Proper Spinal Alignment
Novaform Serafina Pearl is topped with a quilted cover that is specifically tailored with intricate details. The high-performance fabric gets rid of moisture to make sure that you feel cool and comfortable throughout the night. Also, all 3 layers of Serafina Pearl mattress work together to gently adapt to your body curves.
While this mattress gives your joints a break, it also helps promote proper spinal alignment. You can sleep better without feeling pressure on your joints, neck, shoulders, back, hips, and knees. You can also avoid tossing and turning to wake up feeling more fresh and energetic.
Serafina Pearl is available in a couple of firmness levels, Soft, Medium, and Firm. This gives Tempur-Pedic an advantage when it comes to offering more choices for firmness level. If you want a softer and more breathable mattress for a plush feel, we recommend the Soft version. But if you want a thicker layer of support foam for deeper support and superior stability, get the Firm version. For something in between, the Medium version offers the “just right” feel. If you’re looking for a combination of foam layers and a coil layer, you’ll have to go with Tempur-Pedic. They have a hybrid mattress that combines the comfort and support level of foams and coils.
Just like Novaform’s Serafina Pearl mattress, Tempur-Pedic’s ProAdapt Series contains multiple layers of foam. Its Medium version has a SmartClimate Dual Cover System which is a next-generation technology that features a zip-off enclosure. It has a cool outer layer and a stretchable inner layer to provide you with comfort and convenience. Its Original TEMPUR Comfort Layer is designed with advanced adaptability to provide a customized level of comfort and support.
Its TEMPUR-APR Support Layer is made to ensure a deeper and more refreshing sleep. This is due to its most pressure-relieving material though it is 2 inches thinner than Novaform’s Serafina Pearl mattress. The Soft version has TEMPUR-ES Comfort Layer instead of the Original TEMPUR Comfort Layer. This one provides a softer feel which works well with its other layers to increase its relaxing support. For the Firm version, it has a TEMPUR-APR Comfort Layer for a more pressure relieving feeling and rejuvenating sleep. Its Support Layer is made from Original TEMPUR with premium quality to provide more flexible comfort and support. This is good for those who want the best of both worlds in a single mattress.
This is the biggest advantage of Tempur-Pedic over Novaform which only focuses on memory foam mattresses. This hybrid version of TEMPUR-ProAdapt combines the benefits of both foam and coil mattresses. Just like the Soft version of Serafina Pearl, it has the SmartClimate Dual Cover System, TEMPUR-ES Comfort Layer, TEMPUR-APR Support Layer, and a Hybrid Technology. This Hybrid Technology consists of more than 1,000 spring coils with premium quality.
Depending on the firmness level you prefer from the ProAdapt Series, the availability of size may vary. When it comes to support, Tempur-Pedic mattresses can provide more, especially on the edge support. Its memory foam can slowly soften under your body weight while it conforms to your body curves. This creates the sinking feeling just seconds after you lay your body on the mattress but not too much. If you want a premium mattress with more back and edge support, you will enjoy sleeping on a Tempur-Pedic mattress. Just remember that not all Soft, Medium, Medium Hybrid, and Firm mattresses feels the same for every sleeper. The Novaform’s Soft Serafina Pearl mattress might be softer than TempurPedic’s ProAdapt Series Soft version.
Regardless of the firmness level, the Novaform Serafina Pearl mattress offers only 3 sizes. This includes the Queen, King, and California King. Depending on the size and firmness level, the price tag may range from $599.99 up to $949.99. Given that this mattress is 14″ thick and made from high-quality foam materials, its price is affordable.
Meanwhile, TempurPedic’s 12″ ProAdapt series is available in more firmness levels including the Medium Hybrid version. At the same time, this series is available in more sizes. These include the Twin, Twin Long, Double, Queen, King, Split King, California King, and Split California King. Its price tag ranges from $2,499.00 up to $4,998.00.
Despite offering thinner memory foam and hybrid options, Tempur-Pedic mattresses are more expensive. Tempur-Pedic also offers a shorter warranty period with only 10 years of limited warranty on its mattresses. Its return policy includes up to 90 days of trial. On the other hand, Novaform mattresses have up to 20 years of limited warranty on all its mattresses. If you want a longer warranty, we’d say go for the Novaform mattresses. But if you want a free and longer return policy, go for Tempur-Pedic.
