Choosing the Right Mattress

When choosing a new mattress there are a few things you should consider before making your final decision, remember we spend a third of our lives in bed, and our quality of sleep can have varying positive or negative affects on how we feel in daily life. When selecting your bed you will need to consider the size of your room and any extra storage needs you may have, and you'll want to consider your weight when deciding upon a supportive mattress.

There are three main types of mattress that we supply:


Open Coil

Open coil springs linked together, spreading the body weight evenly across the bed and providing a firm edge to the mattress. 13.5 gauge springs are suited to people who prefer a softer mattress and 12.5g springs are firmer. Open coil springs combined with high density polyester fibres provide a firm orthopaedic mattress.

Pocket Sprung

Small independent springs contained in fabric pockets and stitched together, each individual spring allows the mattress to contour to your body shape. More costly than open coil springs, but provide more durability and arguably comfort, available in multiple configurations and usually found in higher-end mattresses.

High Density Foam

High Density Foam mattresses are for those who don't like springs. All ours come rolled and vacuum sealed, they expand to their full size once unwrapped. Provides support to your body by responding to heat and pressure, often combined with Memory Foam. A consideration for people who toss and turn at night.

If you suffer from back problems then an orthopaedic mattress is going to be a worthwhile investment as a properly developed orthopaedic sleep system can often relieve the pain associated with a number of back problems.

It is also worth reading our mattress materials guide so you can get an idea of how different natural and man-made materials affect the comfort, firmness and longevity of a mattress.
