Mattresses

A mattress is one of the most important pieces of furniture you will buy for your bedroom. In the UK we spend around 1/3 of our lives asleep so choosing a comfortable mattress that is right for you is vital. 

Choose from a huge range of mattresses online at Oak Furniture Solutions. We stock four main varieties of mattress: reflex foam mattresses, spring and pocket spring mattresses, memory foam mattresses and latex mattresses

Reflex foam mattresses are orthopaedic mattresses and offer ultimate comfort and support, spring and pocket spring mattresses are made up of springs with a layer of memory foam or reflex foam on the top for extra comfort. Memory foam mattresses support your spine and help you find your best sleeping position and latex mattresses are long lasting and well ventilated to keep your body at a good temperature. 

All our mattresses are available in single, double, king size and super king size. 

If you need help deciding which mattress to buy, you might find our Mattress Buying Guide useful.

Mattress Buying Guide

Buying a mattress is probably one of the most important purchases for your home. You will rely on your mattress for sleep, comfort and support every night for the next seven to ten years.

In this guide we take a look at identifying whether you need a new mattress, to the different types available, as well as sizes, tensions and everything in between!

How Do I Know If I Need a New Mattress?

First of all, consider if you need a new mattress. There is probably something that has prompted you to read this guide. An uncomfortable night’s sleep? Or perhaps a new bed frame? Or maybe it’s just time for a change. Below we outline the warning signs that mean you need a new mattress. 

Morning pains: We know it’s normally hard to get out of bed in the morning, but if you’re waking up with stiffness or pain (especially in your back or lower back) then it could be time for a new mattress. 

Wear & tear: If your existing mattress is showing signs of wear and tear then this is a good clue. Look out especially for broken springs, lumps, bumps and sagging. 

Allergies: If you spend the night sniffing and sneezing then this could be a sign that you need a new mattress. Beds and mattresses attract household allergens over time, sometimes a new mattress is the only way to move on. 

Sleeping Better elsewhere: waking up in a hotel room and feeling like you’ve had a better night’s sleep than in your own bed is a sign to reassess your mattress. 

Old Age: As a mattress is so frequently used, the life cycle of a mattress is only 7-10 years. 10 years equates to roughly 3500 nights work and at this point it’s time to let your mattress rest in peace. 

Spring Mattresses

Spring (or sprung) mattresses are made up of hundreds of small springs. They are excellent for providing core support and are the epitome of precision. Changing the spring construction, thickness, number or coils and height of each spring alters the tension of each mattress. 

There are three main types of sprung mattresses to be aware of:

Open Coil/Open Spring Mattresses: Also known as Bonnell spring are the most common type of springs used in a mattress. A number of single springs are fixed together by one wire. These mattresses are usually budget to mid-range.

Continuous Spring Mattresses: Containing a single length of wire knitted into a series of interwoven springs, which run up and down the bed and are linked vertically. These are usually mid-market to premium.

Pocket spring mattresses: Consisting of small and softer springs, that work independently and are encased pockets of material, either tied or glued together. The benefits of a pocket spring mattress are that the springs move independently so you will not be disturbed if there is movement in the springs on the other side of the bed. Pocket spring mattresses vary in price but tend to be mid-range.

 

Foam Mattresses

Foam mattresses are made up entirely of one sheet of foam. Foam mattresses are often supplied rolled, which makes them practical for carrying and ideal for moving house. They also tend to be more affordable than sprung mattresses, if you’re on a tight budget. 

Within foam mattresses there are different types to be aware of, so you can choose the best to suit you. 

Reflex Foam Mattresses: Reflex foam is made of polyurethane and is the basic foam type used in most mattresses. It is a high-density foam and therefore strong and durable. It is also good for people with allergies as the high-density foam structure makes it naturally hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites.  

Latex Mattresses: Latex is a high quality, natural and premium material, which has a distinctive and resilient feel. The natural elasticity means that these recover their natural shape in an instant. 

Memory Foam Mattresses: Developed with research by NASA, memory foams mattresses are known to be one of the most comfortable types of mattress on the market. The mattress moulds to your body shape, relieving pressure and providing an extremely comfortable sleeping platform. 

 

Hybrid Mattresses

Hybrid mattresses are constructed using a combination of foam and spring. This means you get the benefits of a spring bed with the comfort of a foam mattress. 

Hybrid mattresses are increasingly popular, in particular the sprung memory foam mattress that is made up of springs and finished with a layer of memory foam. The benefits of this hybrid mattress means you get the responsiveness of a spring mattress with the support and comfort of a memory foam mattress.

Shopping For a New Mattress

Consider where you plan to buy your mattress. You might look into buying your mattress online or offline. Buying a mattress online can be advantageous as you can take your time researching and reading about the mattress without being pressured by an in-store sales assistant. The depth and breadth of range available online is far superior to any store and you are more likely to get the best price. 

However there are also strong arguments for buying offline, such as being able to try the mattress to check it suits your body shape and sleeping position. 

Be aware if you’re shopping online to make sure that you double check the delivery service offered. Online retailers normally offer a generous delivery service, which is particularly handy if you’re buying a spring mattress that can’t be compressed or rolled. 

How to Test a New Mattress

If you are testing the mattress in store, we recommend doing the following to test.  

Avoid testing a mattress if you’re in a rush or particularly tired, as you’re bound to find most mattresses comfortable. Wear comfortable clothes and take off your coat and shoes before testing. Then try to lie in your natural sleeping position, for approximately 10-15 minutes, or as long as you can before actually falling asleep. You should also try to roll from the centre to each side to feel how the mattress reacts to your body. 

The mattress should mould to your body, whilst remaining supportive. A very soft mattress, though cosy, will naturally put your spine out of alignment. A mattress that is too hard for you will create tension points in your body over time. 

A great way to see how the mattress is supporting your body is to lie down and see if you can slide your hand under the base of your back. If it slides under easily, then it may be too hard. If you can’t slide it under at all, then it may be too soft. Alternatively, try to place a set of keys between your back and the mattress. If you can’t feel them then it’s a sign you’re onto a winning mattress. 

Be aware that if you and your partner both differ in weight (by 3 stone/18kg or more) then you might want to consider different mattresses. There are mattresses available that come as two different kinds zipped together if you really do need two separate ones. 

Where possible try to test the mattress on your chosen bedstead if you can, to see how the two complement each other. 

Measuring For Your New Mattress

Firstly consider the size of your bedroom and how much spare space you actually have to work with. The most sensible course of action is to consider the bed and mattress together, as one unit. This is because the type of bedstead or divan base you already have or are planning to buy, will affect the performance of the mattress you put on top of it (for more info see below).

Always allow lots of space around you on a mattress, especially if you’re sharing. An ideal bed should be 4-6 inches longer than the taller partner. 

Make sure you double and triple check the dimensions of both the divan and the mattress as these are not standardised, especially if you’re purchasing from two different manufacturers or have an old mattress or divan to match with. 

All Oak Furniture Solutions' mattresses are available in UK standard sizes, which match every bed we sell. If you are looking for an EU sized mattress, please don't hesitate to get in touch, as some of our suppliers stock alternative sizes.

Taking Care Of Your Mattress

Once you’ve chosen your mattress, make sure you care for it properly. Try not to bend it or roll it. 

Always read the manufacturer’s instructions, but typically you should let it breathe and air for 4 hours before you put bedding on it. 

Turn sprung mattresses regularly but with memory foam mattresses simply rotate them long ways, if the memory foam section isn’t on both sides. This will prolong the life-span of your mattress. Every week or so let it air by pulling back the bedding. 

You might want to invest in a washable mattress protector to keep it in condition for longer. This is also a good idea to protect against allergies too.
