What types of mattress are available?

Sprung mattresses

Some of our most popular kinds of sleeping solutions are pocket sprung mattresses or traditional coil mattresses.

Pocket springs

Pocket springs are fantastic because each spring moves independently of one another, providing tailored support that moves with the contours of your body as you sleep. Available in every support tension, pocket springs are known for being incredibly comfortable mattresses, unparalleled pressure relief and providing some of the greatest night's sleep.

Open coil options

Open or traditional spring mattresses are some of the best orthopaedic mattresses in the market. Comprised of a continuous coil wire, the tension can be made extremely rigid which has made it the go-to orthopaedic mattress. Not only this, open coil mattresses have low production costs that are reflected in their price, making for some of the best cheaper mattresses available.

Memory foam mattresses

Aside from sprung mattresses, memory foam is certainly a popular option. Memory foam is comprised of a material that has millions of tiny holes that seep out air when pressure is applied. This means the mattress surface completely conforms to your body shape throughout the night, providing brilliant pressure relief to joints and promoting healthy spine alignment. Because airflow stops when pressure is applied, memory foam is known for its heat retention properties. So, if you tend to be a 'hot sleeper', you may wish to avoid a memory foam mattress and opt for sprung options or a mattress that has temperature regulation qualities such as latex or Geltex. For an all-foam mattress, memory foam is often combined with reflex foam or high-density foam to ensure extra support is provided.

Natural mattresses

Natural latex mattresses have grown in popularity in recent times, mainly because they are one of the most durable sleeping solutions available. Designed to last over 10 years without deteriorating, latex mattresses have a similar composition to memory foam but are much more breathable and temperature regulating. The latex mattress type is slightly more bouncy than memory foam, but certainly makes for a range of quality mattresses that maintain longevity much more than any other mattress type.

Hybrid mattresses

If you're torn between a sprung mattress, memory foam or natural mattress, you may want to consider a hybrid mattress instead. Merging a pocket sprung or traditional coil spring system with comfort layers like memory foam, latex or Geltex, they make for a fantastic range of combination mattresses. With a hybrid mattress, you can benefit from the super support from the spring unit and get a great night's sleep with the sumptuous comfort of foam or latex.

What mattress firmness is right for me?

Finding the ideal mattress firmness for you depends on what your preferred sleeping position is. Take a look below to see what mattress firmness ratings would be best suited for you and the way you sleep.

Soft mattress or medium support

Soft or medium mattress firmnesses are best designed for people who prefer to sleep on their side. This is because a soft mattress can provide cushioning to pressure points such as the shoulders, hips and joints, which in turn promotes healthy spine alignment whilst your body rests in this sleeping position.

Medium firm tension

If you sleep in a variety of sleeping positions, the best mattress for you is medium firm support. This is because you don't want a mattress surface too soft or too firm to support you in whichever sleeping position you're in, and a medium firm mattress can adequately promote healthy spine alignment for all positions.

Firmer or extra firm support

For anyone who prefers to sleep either on their back or stomach, a firm mattress is likely to be the best option for you. This is because the mattress surface is firm enough to promote healthy spine alignment whilst you rest in this position. However, it is worth noting that sleeping on your stomach predominantly will place strain on your lower back regardless of what mattress you sleep on. If you suffer from pain in your back or joints, and if you're of a heavier stature, you may want to consider an extra firmer mattress. This is because this tension can provide additional support in order to combat aches and pains, helping you feel more supported throughout the night and well-rested in the morning.

Mattress qualities explained

Our mattress range has a variety of qualities and properties that enhance the comfort and support of the sleeping solution. Read below to find out some of the best mattress add-ons that will give you the best night's sleep.

Rolled mattresses

For the most convenient mattress delivery process, a rolled vacuum-packed mattress offers this. Compressed, rolled up, sealed in vacuum packaging and placed in a box, these types of mattresses have significantly reduced their size for their delivery. This is the perfect mattress for anyone who has small spaces or awkward corners to manoeuvre when transporting the mattress around their home. Simply move the rolled mattress to the bedroom you desire, take it out from the box, place it on the bed frame and remove it from the packaging. After 4 hours the mattress will have mostly returned to its original size, but after 24 hours it will be completely returned. Not only is a rolled mattress delivery super simple, you also get free delivery when you shop with Mattressman.

Geltex

Struggle to keep cool at night? Geltex is the sleeping material that has been engineered to combat this issue. Comprised of air-permeable elastic foam, Geltex makes for a breathable version of memory foam, also able to conform to the contours of your body whilst you sleep. Some of the best mattress brands that produce Geltex include Silentnight, Sealy and Sleepeezee, providing many years of good night's sleep.

Pillow top

All the mattresses that incorporate a pillow top are known for their sumptuous cloud-like comfort. Often paired with a pocket sprung mattress, the pillow top layer that resides on top of the mattress is often comprised of natural fillings or fibre fillings.

Handles

Almost across all types of mattresses, handles are incorporated into the mattress design. This makes for the simple transport and manoeuvring of mattresses, especially when it comes to regularly flipping or rotating your mattress to maintain its longevity and quality.

Vents

It's hard to find breathable mattresses that help keep you cool at night. Not with mattresses that have incorporated vents though, designed to expel warm are and draw in cool air into your sleeping solution. Increasing airflow, vents really do make for super-breathable types of mattresses that will give you a good night's sleep.

Hand-tufting

Have you ever wondered what the little button-like features are on the surfaces of mattresses? It's known as hand-tufting, a process with threads fillings and springs together, helping to ensure that the fillings don't bunch up throughout the lifetime of your mattress. Not only this, it also helps to maintain the tension of your sleeping solution for many years to come.
