Memory Foam Warehouse vs. Tempur: Which is best?

Memory Foam Warehouse vs. Tempur: Which is best?

Posted on

When it comes to Memory Foam Mattresses, one of the first names that spring to mind is Tempur (we know they’re often on our mind!). Tempur mattresses are held in high esteem by many – which means their products are often accompanied by a very expensive price tag.

As sleep experts, we spend a lot of time talking to our customers – and what we’ve discovered from so many of you is that due to these big brands and their flashy price tags, memory foam is associated with great expense in comparison to other types of mattress. So we’re here to tell you that that doesn’t have to be the case!

Memory Foam Warehouse vs Tempur

So we’ve talked the talk. Now it’s time to walk the walk.

Below is a comparison of the Guru mattress (sold exclusively at Memory Foam Warehouse) and the Tempur Original 21 mattress. Sure, we could leap straight to the price difference – but we’re an honest bunch. So we’ll go through the main features and benefits of both products first, so you understand exactly what each product offers.

Mattress Specifications

Both mattresses feature a triple layer foam design and a depth of over 20cm. These factors are good for durability, and ensure that your mattress performs consistently throughout its life. No sags in the middle. No drops off the edge.

The Guru mattress has a deeper comfort layer, a deeper base layer, and is a deeper mattress overall measuring in at 25cm. On the other hand, the Tempur mattress features a slightly deeper middle support layer.

Memory Foam Density

The Tempur Original 21 mattress uses Memory Foam with a density of 85kg/m3 – this is a very high density memory foam which in turn means a firmer mattress. This is brilliant for sleepers who need high levels of support for their neck and back.

The Guru memory foam mattress uses next generation Memory Foam with a density of 60kg/m3. Slightly less than Tempur, yes, but this is still considered a very high quality and high density memory foam. You’ll receive plenty of support as the memory foam moulds to the contours of your body – reducing tossing and turning by up to 80%.

Temperature Control

A common problem with traditional memory foam mattresses is overheating during the night. The close-structure of traditional foam paired with the enveloping sensation can result in quite a hot sleeping environment, which could potentially disturb your slumber.

The Guru mattress uses innovative 4G foam to combat this problem, allowing you to experience all the benefits of memory foam without getting too hot. 4G foam has gel particles within in, which release a cooling sensation when pressure is applied.

Plus, the 4G foam has an open-cell structure. This means that air can easily move through the foam – almost as if it weren’t there – which means a well-ventilated mattress and a cooler, fresher sleep.


Guru mattress vs Tempur

Lead Times

Both the Guru and Tempur mattresses offer free delivery, however there’s a notable difference in lead times with Tempur customers having to wait up to 3 weeks for their new mattress to arrive!

In comparison, the Guru will be on your doorstep within 3 working days if you live in mainland UK. That’s the beauty of our Yorkshire HQ, where every single Guru mattress is manufactured!

Flat vs Rolled

But what happens when your parcel arrives? We’ll be the first to admit that mattresses aren’t the easiest things to manoeuvre. In-keeping with tradition, Tempur mattresses are delivered flat – however they do offer a helping hand to get it to your bedroom. So not too much hassle.

But believe it or not, taking delivery of a Guru Mattress is even less hassle than that! The Guru mattress is delivered compressed and rolled in a compact box, so you can move it upstairs without a fight.

Rolling and boxing mattresses has been a standard procedure for many years, so we can assure you that it doesn’t impact the mattress, its performance or longevity in any way. It just makes it a heck of a lot easier to get it upstairs. And who knows, you might even find an extra Guru gift from us inside the box...
