A memory foam mattress is good for relieving pressure points on the sleepers body this will promotes good blood flow ideal for a healthy nights sleep. The memory foam contours to the body and keeps the sleeper in this position all through the night. You can buy differing grades of memory foam from low to high density. Memory foam should be partnered by either springs or reflex foam as memory foam needs a quality foundation.

Natural fillings – There’s different types of natural fillings like wool, cotton, cashmere and Mohair all providing there own advantages.

This style of mattress can be expensive and this would be a good top filling working with springs underneath to keep the costs down. You can buy all latex mattresses but again this might not be cost effective and with a layer you supplied with a quality sleeping surface any way.

Spring Systems

Pocket Springs – This style of spring system is the best on the market. You can buy pocket spring mattresses with different counts of springs starting at 800 and then going up to 4000 the higher count the more support. The pocket spring system can partner with most fillings like memory foam, natural and reflex foam for a quality sleeping surface. There’s also micro pocket spring system brands have designed these to offer an even more individual supportive mattress.

Open coil / bonnel spring system – For a cost effective mattress this is the best suiter. With an open coil mattress your providing with good support perfect for partnering all types of fillings. With an open coil mattress system the springs are all connected so it’s not individual like pocket springs. This style of mattress might be good for a single mattress as the design can sometimes cause roll together this is where a partner can move into the middle of the mattress and this will cause the other sleeper to roll down in to the centre of the sleeping surface.

Mattresses can come be produced in different ways. For instance a mattress can be produced hand made or by machine.

What’s the most comfortable mattress?

There’s lot’s of mattress styles to choose from when it comes to comfort it’s different for everyone. Choose a mattress that best suits your circumstances for instance a pocket spring mattress might bed the most comfortable if there’s 2 sleepers and a firm mattress might be right for a heavy sleeper. Take in to account the bed base as this will effect how comfortable the mattress is for the sleepers.

We’ve come up with some ideas for the most comfortable mattress for you, check them out now:

Memory Foam – Opt for this style if your searching for a contouring mattress surface. Memory foam reacts with body heat and then contours around the shape of the sleepers body placing them into a healthy posture through the night. An excellent choice would be a memory foam and spring mattress for a supportive outcome. The spring will provide the support underneath the memory foam allowing the material to perform at it’s best. Opt for either pocket springs or an open coil spring system this might depend on budget. Place the memory foam mattress on a solid platform bed base this will supply a firmer tension to the mattress than a sprung top.

Cashmere – This style of mattress is perfect for moister and temperature control. A cashmere mattress is comfortable this is due to the material being fine and contouring to the body. The cashmere material is known as a luxury material in the bed trade only found in quality mattresses. This can be partnered with other natural materials like wool, cotton and silk perfect for a comfortable mattress. Consider a cashmere and pocket spring mattress in a king size for 2 people this would supply individual sleeping surfaces. A cashmere mattress would be suitable for a master bedroom offer to a wooden bed frame.

Firm Tension – Consider this tension if your heavy or need lot’s of support. A firm mattress can be comfortable for some sleepers but not for others. People who suffer with back issues sometimes think they need a firm mattress this isn’t always the case they just need support. The more springs inside the mattress the more support the sleepers going to get by rule of thumb. Consider the bed base with a firm mattress you would want to partner with a solid top if placed on a sprung this scenario would defeat the object. For an alternative a medium mattress might be the better option or for children choose a soft mattress and place on a solid base.

Orthopaedic Spring System – Choose an orthopaedic mattress for a comfortable sleeping surface. This type of mattress is perfect for supporting the body all over for the perfect sleeping surface. Designed for people who suffer from back aches and pains. The spring system is designed to position the spin alignment this helps with better posture and blood flow around the body. Choose different fillings with memory foam and natural fillings the best partners for an orthopaedic mattress. You would be best to offer a solid bed base for this mattress as if you place on a sprung it’s going to defeat the object of the mattresses design.

Bunk Bed – Offer this style to the kids bed perfect for safety. Choose a quality filling for a bunk bed mattress this can range from memory foam to natural filings. With children being light in weight a open coil spring would be appropriate or reflex foam underneath for a foundation filling. The depth of a bunk bed mattress is really important not for comfort but for safety. Make sure to buy this children’s mattress under 15cm deep as the sleeper won’t intrude over the guard rail of the top bunk. A bunk bed mattress would be comfortable with hypo-allergenic fillings and a soft to the touch knitted fabric cover.
