Air Mattress Pros & Cons


Air mattresses are usually used to save floor space as temporary replacements or when traveling. But there are pros and cons to sleeping on and using a mattress in this form.

How They Work

  • Air mattresses are inflatable mattresses made of plastic that can be textile-reinforced or rubber. They generally come with an air pump to pump air into the mattress.


  • Air mattress pros include convenience, mobility, can easily be stored, and comfort depending on the brand and model. As a temporary replacement, they work better than a couch or a cot.


  • Cons include they are easily breakable because as an inflatable plastic object it can get holes easily. The least liked air mattress material is vinyl because it is less durable than other materials. Other cons are that it is not as comfortable as a regular bed because it might not be as firm.


  • Air mattresses not only save space but can be very helpful for people with injuries or disabilities. Those mattresses with adjustable firmness, although they are more expensive, are comfortable for those who need to adjust a bed to their unique requirements.

Choosing a Good Air Mattress

  • The best way to find the best air mattress is to read customer reviews and choose trusted brand-name products. Air mattresses are generally more expensive in stores and cheaper to buy online.
