Types Of Mattress
Open coil (also known as Miracoil, Continuous coil, Standard coil) are the most common types of mattresses, which consist of a inter-connected spring system. provides great value for money as well as comfort. This makes them the perfect option for any bedroom. A standard double open coil mattress will contain an average of 300 springs
pocket sprung mattress contains individual springs, each sewn into its own pocket of fabric. This means the springs in a pocket sprung mattress work completely independently of one another and can provide your body with better pressure relieving support.
combination mattresses also known as hybrid mattresses – which mix springs with the luxury of memory foam, latex or a gel layer.
Memory foam uses your body heat to soften and mould to your shape. This provides remarkable support and comfort. Once pressure is removed, memory foam will bounce back very slowly and over time will remember your body shape and optimal sleeping position, hence the name ‘memory’.
How firm your mattress is will affect how well you sleep. The type of firmness you need will depend on your sleeping position, height and weight. Here we explain what level of firmness is best for what type of sleeper.
Soft: Side sleepers or those who change positions during the night are best suited to soft mattresses. This is because the way you sleep already relieves pressure from your spine so you want your mattress to mould to your body’s natural position.
Medium soft: This is ideal for those who change their sleeping position during the night, as it will still mould to your body position but provide a little more support.
Medium firm: This is best for people who sleep on their back as you require extra lower-back support, which this type of firmness offers.
Firm: This type of mattress is ideal for those who sleep on their front, are over 15 stone or suffer from back pain. This is because it will keep your back in a relatively comfortable and stable position without allowing you to sink into it as you sleep, which can cause lower-back pain.
