How do they approve mattresses?
Good Housekeeping Institute-approved mattresses involve rigorous expert testing with independent endorsement from a consumer panel that uses the mattresses for a significant amount of time. This helps to get the long-term performance of support, comfort, durability and value for money. Testing everything from a mattress topper to pocket sprung mattresses, hybrid mattresses, memory foam mattresses, sleeping solutions that are appropriate for side sleepers, back or front sleepers, whether they can regulate body temperature and more. Taking all this into consideration means you can find the perfect mattress for you that provides a good night's sleep for many years to come.
What mattresses have been Good Housekeeping Approved in our range?
Some of the most durable mattresses on the market are latex mattresses, so it's no wonder that many of our natural latex mattresses have been approved by the Good Housekeeping Institute. What's more, this type of luxury mattress is known for its temperature regulation properties, allowing your body heat to be absorbed and wicked away throughout the night. Due to the open cell structure that mimics a foam-like material, latex mattresses are also resistant to dust mites.
Pocket sprung mattress
Another mattress that frequently receives the seal of approval from Good Housekeeping is pocket sprung mattresses. These are the best mattresses if you prefer a sleeping solution that includes natural materials, often great for hot sleepers thanks to their breathability and absorption properties. A pocket sprung mattress is known for fantastic durability because each mattress comprises independently-moving individual springs that are designed to last.
Combining some of the best mattress types, hybrid mattresses with the Good Housekeeping Institute approval are designed to last and bring superior comfort and support. One of our most popular options is a fusion of latex and pocket springs, whose unparalleled qualities are described above. With the main support derived from the pocket springs, you can still benefit from temperature regulation, hypoallergenic properties and luxurious comfort from the latex top layer too.
Emma Original mattress
Not only is the Emma Original mattress approved by Which? Best Buy, but is also endorsed by the Good Housekeeping Institute. Combining pocket springs with memory foam, the sleep surface is designed to target pressure points and minimise motion transfer. It's no wonder this mattress is so highly recommended, especially due to free next-day delivery and the 200-night sleep trial.
What sizes and support tensions are included in Good Housekeeping Institute-approved mattresses?
You can find mattresses in almost every UK standard mattress size that have been approved by a Good Housekeeping Institute expert, including single (90 x 190cm), double (135 x 190cm), king size (150 x 200cm) and super king size (180 x 200cm). If you're looking for a mattress to suit your sleep style, you will be happy to know that there's something for everyone. Good Housekeeping Institute has approved medium, medium firm and firm mattress options, ideal for people who prefer to sleep on their side, stomach, back, or all three.
