We all know the importance of catching our 40 winks, so save yourself the sleepless nights and check out our must-read guide to tracking down your perfect mattress!
A bed is nothing without a great mattress – our body repairs and heals while we are sleeping. Interestingly, broken sleep is down to discomfort most of the time, which starts with the mattress.
Ideally you would replace a divan base and a mattress at the same time, but we understand that budgets don’t always stretch that far. The following checks should help you decide if you need a new frame:
Make sure the frame is sturdy and level and that it doesn’t have any parts missing, such as slats, bolts or other fittings. Ensure all the screws and bolts are tight and that the frame isn’t making any noise when in use.
Did you know that we spend a third of our lives in bed? So, that’s three years and four months you’ll spend on your next mattress… make sure it’s a good one! A great mattress should last for up to 10 years – read our mattress care guide to make sure you’re getting the most out of yours.
Ask us about our Try Before you Buy your Mattress scheme. We encourage our customers to have a lie down in store – you might feel silly at first, but trust us, it’s all part of the process! Find your nearest store here.
A soft mattress will ease pressure on your hips and shoulders, helping to prevent uncomfortable aches and pains in the morning.
Perfect if you’re a fidgety sleeper, a medium mattress is comfortable and supportive in a variety of sleeping positions.
Are you a flat on your back or a splayed on your stomach sleeper? A firmer structure is designed to provide enough support to keep your spine perfectly aligned as you sleep.
A soft/medium mattress lets your shoulders and hips sink while supporting the weight of the rest of your body.
Whether you snooze on your back, stomach or side, a medium firm mattress provides pressure relief on your joints to reduce uncomfortable aching.
Unsure what kind of bed base you’re after? See our Bed Buying Guide for advice.
Constructed with individual metal coils encased in pockets of fabric, each spring is separate so you’re supported across different pressure points. The individual pocket springs also means you won’t be disturbed by a partner’s movements, which sounds good to us!
A memory foam mattress moulds to your shape, relieving painful pressure from your joints and providing support for your body where you need it most.
Get the best of both worlds with a pocket sprung mattress that is topped with a supportive layer of innovative memory foam. The top layer moulds to your body while the pocket springs relieve any pressure from your joints.
Made from materials that won’t harbour any allergens that create allergy symptoms, this style is available in memory foam, pocket sprung, traditional spring or latex mattresses.
A latex mattress will give you great support and relieve any back pain. The natural materials used in the construction of latex mattresses are known for their durability, as well as being hypoallergenic.
We used to have to turn and flip our mattresses, however, many mattresses today are made in such a way that there is no need to flip them. All they need is occasional end-to-end rotation.
See our range of headboards for a quick and easy way to add extra comfort and style to your bedroom.
A standard single bed measures approx 90cm x 190cm. Single beds and mattresses are ideal for smaller rooms that are short on space, and can comfortably sleep one average sized adult.
A standard double measures approx 135cm x 190cm and will fit easily in most average sized bedrooms with plenty of room to spare.
King Size beds measure approx 150cm x 200cm so you (and your partner!) can stretch out comfortably.
A super king size bed and mattress is the ultimate indulgence. Measuring about 180cm x 200cm, this is the largest bed size that is widely available to buy.
A great option for children's rooms, small single beds are ideal for bedrooms limited on space. They measure approx 75cm x 190cm.
Again, great for bedrooms which are short on space, they measure approx 120cm x 190cm.
