Mattress Support Ratings
Mattresses feel different to different people. The best way to find out whether you like the feel of one is to try it out. We recommend you lie on as many mattresses as possible. The longer you lie on one, the better sense you'll have of whether it's right for you.
Mattresses can be made from a number of materials and ways. They feel different depending on which materials they're made from. To help you find the right one for you, we've created a guide called our Support Rating System. This shows whether a mattress feels soft, medium or firm.
SOFT: If you sleep on your side, a soft mattress will take the pressure off your hips and shoulders by letting them mould into the mattress.
MEDIUM: If you move around a lot in your sleep, a medium mattress is great for giving you support in all sleeping positions.
FIRM: If you sleep on your front or back, a firm mattress will help keep your spine in the correct position. Just make sure you have a good pillow at the right height too.
Carpetright also offers a number of mattress constructions to suit your particular needs:
Choose one of our all-foam mattresses and you'll benefit from the all-over even support of traditional foam with the added bonus of a layer of memory foam giving you support just where you need it. Many people feel this combination provides the best night's sleep, but of course, everyone's different, so why not drop in to your nearest Carpetright store and see for yourself.
Memory Foam and Open Coil Spring
If you're looking for the support of memory foam but also the bounce of traditional springs, then our coil spring mattress could be right for you. Because our open coil construction is a good quality, yet highly affordable spring system that can be combined with a layer of memory foam, you may well find it's the best of both worlds.
Memory Foam and Pocket Coil Spring
Like our open coil construction, each spring sits next to the other but also sits in its own, unique fabric pocket. This enables the springs to work independently and ultimately provide you with very effective, even support. It's especially useful for those who share a bed as the construction allows for uninterrupted sleep even if your partner moves a lot in their sleep.
At Carpetright, we understand that foam may not be to your liking. That's why we also offer you an extensive range of open coil and pocket sprung mattresses with traditional fillings. For us, your comfort is our top priority, so why not ask about any of our mattresses and beds at your nearest Carpetright bed store.
Whatever your needs, we've got it covered
At Carpetright, we look at every detail in the quest for a great night's sleep. That's why we never underestimate the importance of the type of cover you choose for your mattress. It's the part that's nearest to you, it's the finishing touch and it should feel like it's the perfect choice for you. Here's a selection of the variety of covers we've carefully sourced on your behalf:
Our Damask range is a traditionally woven fabric, which can be man-made, natural, or a combination of both.
This man-made fabric is created to give a soft feel with a certain amount of give to ensure optimum comfort.
Sleep soundly with the power of Aloe Vera! This plant is proven to have soothing and healing effects, so we've created a mattress treated with its essential oils.
If you're looking for a soft and luxurious feel to your mattress then our knitted fabric, woven with silk proteins, could be for you.
With a softer feel than ordinary wool, cashmere is knitted into the fabric, giving you not only thermo insulation benefits, but also moisture absorbing characteristics.
Giving you great control over skin temperature and body hydration, Coolmax is Carpetright's answer to our ever-volatile climate.
Outlast® uses temperature regulating technology which absorbs, stores and releases excess body heat. Sounds amazing, but here at Carpetright, we've found it extremely effective in ensuring you don't get too hot or too cold in the night, but enjoy a great sleep at just the right temperature.
