Mattress Sets: Shopping for a New Mattress and Foundation

Your complete satisfaction with your Serta mattress set is our number-one priority. If you’re shopping for a new mattress set, it’s important to understand how a mattress and foundation work together to provide a comfortable night’s sleep so you can make an educated buying decision.

A sleep set is made up of both the mattress and the foundation:


Serta has three primary mattress types: memory foam, innerspring, and memory foam hybrid. Try our online Mattress Selector for help selecting the mattress type set that’s right for you. Many Serta mattresses also offer a variety of comfort choices that allow you to choose your ideal sleeping surface.


The base of your mattress set is known as the foundation or box spring. The foundation is designed to complement the performance of the mattress and works in unison with it to provide proper support and durability. Purchasing just the mattress or foundation alone can reduce the overall durability and longevity of your mattress set.

You can also enhance the comfort and convenience of your life with a Serta Adjustable Foundation, available for use iComfort, and select Perfect Sleeper mattress models. Adjustable foundations allow you to elevate your head and feet as needed. This can help alleviate pressure points, improve blood circulation, and reduce acid reflux and snoring. It’s also a great option for people who love to lounge in bed, be it while reading a book, using your computer, or eating breakfast in bed.
