What is a cold foam mattress?

Cold foam doesn’t exactly give you the idea of a nice warm bed. Yet it is an incredibly popular filling for mattresses in Dutch bedrooms. This is because the name cold foam comes from the production process, in which the foam is poured into an unheated mold. The official name is high resilience foam or HR foam. The cells of the foam are open and partly due to their resilience, extremely comfortable.

Why choose a cold foam mattress?

A cold foam mattress lasts a long time and is actually suitable for everyone. They are therefore widely used in hospitals; almost everyone can lie on it comfortably.

Benefits of cold foam in a mattress


High resilience mattresses are, as the name suggests, super resilient. This is because the foam is very compact and provides counter pressure without reducing comfort. As a result, permanent pitting almost or at least not easily occurs.

Moisture regulation

The open-cell structure of these mattresses promotes air circulation. This means that (perspiration) moisture can also be discharged well.


Also thanks to its cell structure: excellent breathability and ventilation. Fresh, hygienic and much less bothered by house dust mites.


All the benefits above naturally lead to only one conclusion: these mattresses are wonderfully comfortable!


On average, a mattress only lasts about eight years. However, one with cold foam as filling can last at least ten to twelve years, which is super long!


The conformity or adaptability of these mattresses is high. This means that the mattress molds itself to your body. Your spine maintains its natural S-curve while sleeping, as your body is evenly supported.


Firmness, resilience and comfort combine to provide ideal support for your body. Even if you are heavier than 100 kilos, something that can be quite a challenge with mattresses. Read more about this on beds for heavy people and what to look out for.

Disadvantages of cold foam

A mattress cannot have only advantages. For instance, cold foam is relatively heavy, and, because of its good ventilating ability, cold foam also stays cool in winter. People who like to be nice and warm may then better choose to have memory foam in the mattress as well. Furthermore, cold foam mattresses are also a bit more expensive than most polyether foam mattresses, but more economical than advanced mattresses. Then again, cold foam mattresses do last longer, so at the bottom line, this foam then often wins anyway.
