If you’re in the market for a new mattress, it’s important to consider all options. One such option that you may not be giving much thought to, however, is an air mattress. Most times, this isn’t considered an option for homes, but they can offer some benefits for certain shoppers. At Comfort Gallery Mattresses, we want to make sure that everyone gets the perfect mattress for their needs, and we’ll work with you to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each type available.

Advantages of an Inflatable Mattress

One of the biggest advantages of using an air mattress in your home is that you can customize the firmness of them, simply by adjusting the level of inflation. Air mattresses are also highly economical, offering a very affordable option to people who need a bed as soon as possible.

Air mattresses are also great if you’re trying to sell or stage your home particularly if you’ve already moved out. Rather than showing an empty room—which can leave some potential buyers feeling uninspired—laying down an air mattress can bring back the look of a more put-together bedroom.


Air mattresses nowadays are quite a bit different from what you might be picturing, as well. For instance, they often now include a base-layer of inflation, somewhat similar to a box spring, which not only makes the mattress look more like a traditional bed, but also offers additional support.

Disadvantages of Using an Air Mattress

Of course, there are a few disadvantages to owning an air mattress, as well. One is that you may find yourself replacing air pumps often. Even though they can be bought inexpensively, if one breaks when you need it and you don’t have time to get a new pump just yet, you’re stuck with a deflated, uncomfortable bed.

Additionally, you usually won’t find much of a warranty for an air mattress, but luckily, the cost to replace them is not much more than the cost would be for repair.
