Choosing the right mattress for you

Looking to buy a new mattress for a great night's sleep? As we spend a third of our lives in bed, choosing the correct mattress firmness is really important.Whether it's a cheaper mattress for a guest room, a luxury mattress for the master bedroom, or an orthopaedic mattress for a sore back, you're sure to find the right mattress that suits your budget from our mattress collection.

Which mattress is best?

Offering body-contouring support, it's hard to beat a pocket sprung mattress. Small in diameter, pocket springs (based on a king size) range from an 800 spring count up to Alexander & Cole mattresses with 12800 springs, compared to open coil mattresses with 325 springs.

Which mattress firmness rating do I need?

As everyone's personal preferences differ, choosing the best mattress or comfort grade is the first thing you need to establish when buying a new mattress. Choosing the best mattress firmness your body requires depends not only on your weight, but your height, build and your favoured sleeping position. Most light and average weight side sleepers prefer a softer support, while heavier individuals who sleep on their backs may want an extra firm feel. Medium and medium firm mattress tensions work for all body weights and sleeping positions.

What kind of mattress is best for a bad back?

It's obviously hard to define how bad someone's back pain is, but it's probably best to avoid a softer feel mattress or an extra firm support. It's important that someone with back issues should look for a mattress that's supportive and comfortable, so a medium firm mattress would be the best option.

What type of mattress is the most comfortable?

A lighter framed person may find a soft mattress or a medium mattress more comfortable as they give more easily, whereas a heavier framed person may prefer a firmer mattress or orthopaedic mattresses with an extra firm support. At the end of the day, the most comfortable mattresses are the ones that suits you.

How much do mattresses cost?

That's a very open question as prices vary a lot depending on their make-up. All our mattresses serve the same purpose by providing a platform to sleep on. Cheaper mattresses will not offer the same level of support and comfort as the best mattress options, such as pocket sprung mattresses.

What mattress brands do you offer?

As bed specialists, we offer an extensive range of mattress brands and deal with many well-known suppliers in the UK, such as

Silentnight - The market leader in the UK for manufacturing their patented Miracoil, Mirapocket and pocket spring systems for the best night's sleep.

What are the benefits of buying a mattress online?

Shopping for a mattress online has become a widely spread way of purchasing a new bed, as it allows you to browse websites at ease and when it suits you. It allows you the convenience of viewing an extensive range of mattresses at any time that is convenient to you. Online shopping is available to you 24/7. All our mattresses are available with no delivery charge, unless you require an additional service.

What size of mattresses do you sell?

As bed specialists, we sell all mattress sizes from small single mattresses to super king size mattresses. We also sell large single mattresses; an ideal mattress size for those who find standard single mattresses too small. The most popular sizes are double mattresses and king size mattresses. From soft and comfortable mattresses to orthopaedic mattresses, we have a comfort grade to suit most people's personal preferences.

Do you sell mattresses for taller people?

Single mattresses are 6ft3 long, but we have a fantastic range of 6ft6 extra-long single mattresses and if you're very tall, we also have 6ft9 extra-long single mattresses too. If it's a double you need, we have 6ft6 extra-long double mattresses and 6ft9 extra-long double mattresses. Standard king size beds and super king size are 6ft6 long, but they are both available in 6ft9 and 7ft lengths.

What size of mattress is best for a smaller bedroom?

It depends on who the bed is for. If it's a new bed for a young child, a small single bed at 2ft6 wide would be the best option. If it's for an older child or adult, a 3ft single bed would be sufficient. For those who find a standard 3ft single mattress too small and need more space, a large single bed would be a good choice, as it's 3ft6 width offers an extra 6' of sleeping space. If it's for a guest room that occasionally has 2 people staying overnight, an ideal mattress size is a 4ft small double; perfect where space is an issue.

How often should you change your mattress?

The general rule is that mattresses should be replaced every 8-10 years. As we spend on average 8 hours a night in bed, your mattress will receive around 29200 hours of wear and tear over a ten-year period (8 hours x 365 days x 10 years = 29200 hours).

How to clean a mattress

Unfortunately, no matter how careful we are, accidents do happen and spillages can ruin the look of your mattress. We recommend cleaning any spills as quickly as possible with warm soapy water, baking soda and a cloth. Rinse the cloth in cold water, then dab the stain with the cloth. Sprinkle the baking soda over the stain and leave for 30 minutes. Rinse the cloth with cold water again and dab the stain until it lifts. Repeat this process as many times as necessary, then leave to dry.

How to dispose of a mattress?

If you have a vehicle large enough, you can take your old mattress to the tip, however, it may just end up as landfill. We can, for a charge, arrange to collect your old mattress when we deliver your new one for it to be recycled at Hamilton Waste, an approved bed frame and mattress recycling centre.

Is a 20-year-old mattress too old?

In a word, yes. It would be very unusual for a mattress of that age to not show signs of sagging, or for you to not suffer aches and pains when you get up. If you have a 20-year-old mattress, it's certainly time to replace it. The Sleep Council has a helpful guide to choosing a new bed.

What are the signs that you need a new mattress?

The most obvious signs are

  • It is showing clear signs of sagging or going lumpy
  • You struggle to get a comfortable night's sleep and toss and turn
  • You wake up with aches, pains and stiff joints
  • You tend to get a better night's sleep on a different mattress
  • It's making more noises every time you move or turn
  • It aggravates your allergies
  • It develops a bad smell

How do you know your mattress is bad?

The most obvious signs that result in a poor night's rest are sagging due to loss of mattress firmness, lumps and bumps and twangs in the night. If your mattress is over 10 years old, if you struggle to get a comfortable night's sleep, if you continue to toss and turn and if you wake with joint pains, it's a clear sign that it's time to buy a new mattress.

Can you put a new mattress on an old base?

You can, but it's certainly not advisable. Your existing base will have had the same amount of wear and tear as the old mattress you are replacing. If your current base has any dips or develops any sagging, your new mattress will simply follow these lines and distort the spring unit.

How do you fix a sunken mattress?

You can't. The most common reason for sagging is not following mattress care instructions. Sunken mattresses can result in disrupted sleep, plus aches and pains when you get up. You could always try a mattress topper for extra padding, but if the sagging is excessive, it's time for a change.

What firmness is best for side sleepers?

Side sleeping is the most common position for the majority of us with a soft mattress being the most popular comfort grade that people choose. A pocket spring mattress and memory foam mattresses along with pillow top mattresses offer additional cushioning around the body's pressure points.

What firmness is best for back sleepers?
