Mattress Guide

What mattress is right for me?

Choosing the right mattress is a hugely important decision - after all, you spend around a third of your life in bed!

There are a few key factors to consider when selecting a mattress, including your sleeping position, body shape, preferred firmness, and the type of material that best suits your needs. Your budget is also an important consideration, as mattresses can vary in price.

Once you have considered all of these factors, you can narrow down your search and find the perfect mattress for you.

Mattress types

Pocket Sprung

A Pocket Sprung mattress is made from individual pocket springs. Imagine the mattress as your own little pocket spring factory, where each pocket spring works independently, reacting only to the pressure applied to that area.

The result is a more personalised support and response for each person sleeping on the mattress – so it’s great if you’re a couple of differing size and weight. Also, recommended if you sleep on your back.

Memory Foam

Lying on a Memory Foam mattress is like a warm hug from your bed. Your body heat softens the Memory Foam, reacting to your natural body shape, so you gently sink into the sumptuous mattress. It then recovers its normal shape when you get up.

It is also antimicrobial which means fewer bugs and mites that can aggravate allergies. The full-body contouring also supports your lower back, allowing the muscles to relax and release tension. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

Open Coil

This is probably the mattress you slept on as a child. A coil sprung mattress is the most common and often seen as a more traditional choice.

Open Coil mattresses are made of single springs fixed together by one wire. This creates a much firmer mattress, often used in orthopaedic beds and offers great value for money, with excellent comfort to rewind the clock and sleep like a baby all over again.


Orthopaedic mattresses. Hard to lie on. Even harder to spell.

Specially designed for extra firm support, they distribute your body weight to alleviate stress on the spine, relieve painful pressure points, support your back and help maintain natural alignment through the night.

If you suffer from poor sleep through discomfort, especially in your back and joints, you need to take special consideration and an orthopaedic mattress can drastically help you get a pain free sleep!

Rolled Up

A rolled-up mattress is a mattress that has been specially designed to be rolled & vacuum packed.

Small enough to fit into the average-sized car and easier to transport than other conventional mattresses, the revolutionary vacuum packed mattress regains its original shape in about two hours, leaving you plenty of time to enjoy a very comfortable night’s rest.

Perfect for converted attics, caravans and motor homes or when an extra bed is needed at short notice!


An adjustable bed is just that; adjustable.

It can be accustomed to several different positions and aren’t only for those with restricted mobility. Their ergonomic positioning offers a whole host of benefits, particularly in the back, hips and legs.

If you have historic injuries or conditions like scoliosis or arthritis, a normal flat mattress simply cannot provide adequate support throughout the night.

Mattress most commonly paired with adjustable beds are memory foam, latex foam, innerspring, and airbeds.
