What Is A Luxury Mattress Made Of?

Not all mattresses are created equal. The type of mattress you choose and the materials it is made up of have a huge impact on its quality. Let’s look at some common mattress types and which are the most luxurious;

Innerspring Mattresses

An innerspring mattress is made up of interconnected metal springs or coils which are covered by a layer of fabric padding. This type of mattress is also referred to as a spring, coil or open coil mattress.

The quality of innerspring mattresses really varies. One of the main downsides is that they don’t offer even support and the springs can become uncomfortable over time.

Pocket Spring Mattresses

A step up from your standard spring - a pocket sprung mattress contains individual springs or pocket coils, each encased in their own fabric pocket. This allows for more targeted support which can be handy when sharing with a partner of a different size or weight.

Memory Foam Mattresses

Memory foam provides luxurious comfort and support by moulding to the shape of your body. On contact with body weight and warmth, memory foam softens, minimising pressure and providing the ideal sleeping surface for your build and sleeping position.

Hybrid Mattresses

Hybrid mattresses provide the best of both worlds, combining the bouncy feel and targeted support of pocket springs with a soft memory foam comfort layer. If you’re looking for luxury, hybrid mattresses deliver as they can provide personalised solutions to different sleeping issues.

Quality Memory Foam

So we’ve already established that memory foam and hybrids offer the best in terms of luxury comfort and support. But how do you know you’re buying the best when it comes to memory foam?

When searching for a quality memory foam mattress, here are some things to consider;

  • Ensure the mattress is labelled as containing memory foam and not other inferior foams
  • Check the memory foam density (high density memory foam is usually better quality and more supportive)
  • Check the reviews
  • Check for the length of warranty available

Ultimate Comfort and Support

If you’re not yet convinced that a memory foam mattress or hybrid offers the most in terms of luxurious comfort, here’s a few more benefits that come with sleeping on memory foam;

  • Tailored support
  • Great movement absorption
  • Relief for pressure points
  • Pressure relief for side sleepers and those with back or joint pain
  • Ideal for allergy sufferers
  • Hygienic and hypoallergenic

The Best in Sleep Technology

A luxury mattress should combine the latest sleep technology to help solve common sleeping problems. There has been huge progress made in memory foam technology in the last few years, leading to high-performing mattresses that don’t cost the earth.

Here’s a taste of some of the sleep tech solutions our mattresses feature;

Long Lasting and Durable

A luxury mattress should last the distance. A good quality memory foam mattress could last up to 15 years if cared for correctly- making the investment well worth the money.

Longer Warranties

A handy way to check the quality of a luxury mattress is to keep an eye out for longer warranties. The longer the warranty, the longer the mattress is likely to last before it needs replacing.

We offer warranties on our best mattresses for up to 15 years to help you feel confident in your investment.

Excellent Customer Service

When you buy luxury, you expect a certain level of service. From free delivery to old mattress collection services - we do our very best to ensure a smooth delivery and customer satisfaction.

Here’s what else you can expect from us;


Luxurious Finishing Touches

Sometimes, luxury is in the little details. The right pillow or perfect topper can add an element of luxury to your bedtime experience.

Memory Foam Pillows

The right pillow can make all the difference when it comes to the quality of your sleep. A memory foam pillow is supportive and great for promoting the natural alignment of your spine.

Eucalyptus Infused Mattress Covers

Our eucalyptus infused fabric mattress covers are perfect for sensitive skin as they provide a soft and hypoallergenic surface that’s kind on skin. This eco-friendly material is a little luxury we could all do with.

Cushioning Memory Foam Mattress Toppers

A memory foam mattress topper can transform an average mattress into an outstanding one. Sinking into that comfort layer after a long day feels like heaven for tired limbs and sore joints.

Luxury Isn’t All About Price

You might be surprised to discover that luxury isn’t all about fancy designer labels and high prices. It is possible to find quality memory foam mattresses at affordable prices.

That’s because we offer factory direct prices that skip out the middle man and bring top of the range mattress technology straight to you.

If you’re really looking for a bargain, our Essentials range of memory foam products is ideal. Or, if you’re looking for a little extra indulgence, opt for something in our diverse Zen range or our premium Komfi range of mattresses.

What Makes a Luxury Mattress Worth the Investment?

Is it worth opting for a luxury mattress brand? This all depends on what you want out of your mattress and your individual sleeping needs.

A high end mattress will last longer so you won’t have to replace it as often. If you suffer from back pain, arthritis or disturbed sleep, investing in a high-performing mattress could do wonders. Better sleep can have a significant impact on your overall health and wellbeing, making you feel happier, calmer and ready to take on the day.

Invest in your sleep and browse our range of luxury quilted memory foam mattresses to find the ideal fit for you.
