Sleeping on an inflatable bed can be uncomfortable. So, to make yourself or your guests cozy enough to sleep peacefully through the night, it's smart to add some extra cushion, support, and padding to it. Luckily, it doesn’t take much to transform an inflatable bed into a more comfortable sleeping solution. All you need is one of the best toppers for an air mattress and of course sheets plus a pillow or two.
Mattress toppers, in general, are ingenious affordable options for adding more support and comfort to any bed type. When you’re shopping for a topper for an air mattress, look for ones made of thick cushioned material like memory foam, latex, or fibers. The type of mattress topper to choose depends on personal sleep preferences and needs. Memory foam conforms to your body and isolates motion better than latex and fiber-filled toppers, add to that the fact that it's usually the most affordable option and you have a go-to pick, especially if the air mattress will be shared.
Both memory foam and latex provide additional support for pressure points with the ability to dampen sound, but latex has more bounce back. So, if you find it difficult getting in and out of your air bed, latex is a good option. It's a more natural option which some people prefer, but it also tends to be more expensive. There are also toppers with fibers such as wool or down-alternative fill for more softness available, too.
