Serta Perfect Sleeper Renewed Sleep Mattress Review

Serta Perfect Sleeper Renewed Sleep Plush Pillowtop Mattress in a room

The Renewed Sleep is a cooling mattress with a focus on pressure relief. It's part of the new Perfect Sleeper collection, which provides 40% more pressure relief on average over the previous collections - according to Serta. They have exclusive new foams, including the HexCloud™ Gel Foam.

Comfort Scale Rating

The Renewed Sleep comes in three different comfort levels: firm, plush, and plush pillow top. The firm is rated a 3 on our Comfort Scale, so it'll feel firm but still have some cushioning. The plush is a 6, so it falls into the mid-range in softness. It wouldn't feel like sinking into a cloud but you'll have a good amount of pressure-relieving foams. Many couples find this level a good compromise when they have differing preferences. The plush pillow top is also rated a 6 but it'll be a taller mattress and feel a bit more cushiony - though still giving plenty of pushback.

Pros & Cons

PROS CONS
  • Stays fresh and cool thanks to the coil system as well as the breathable foams and fabrics
  • The coils are wrapped individually so they'll support where you need it but also contour to your body
  • Edge support allows you to sleep comfortably even right near the side of the bed
  • It has new, more advanced foams from Serta that relieve pressure points more effectively
  • Although not the most expensive of beds, the Renewed Sleep isn't great for those on a budget

Warranty

The Renewed Sleep mattress comes with a 10-year warranty against factory defects. There's also a comfort guarantee of 120 nights to try it out.

Conclusion

The Renewed Sleep has five different comfort options, so you can choose between different heights and comfort levels. Each has a custom support coil system with 1,000 individually wrapped coils. This makes for a very supportive but gentle feel, as it pinpoints where you need support. It helps the breathability of the mattress as well so that in combination with the cooling HexCloud Gel Foam and other materials, the Renewed Sleep will keep you from overheating throughout the night.

With all the layers of foam and the pocketed coils, the Renewed Sleep is a good mattress for couples who don't want to feel too much motion from their partner. The edge support also helps because it expands the sleep surface right to the edge.

I'd recommend the Renewed Sleep if you want a hybrid mattress that'll keep you cool and free from pain points during the night.
