Buying the right mattress can be a challenging, confusing and time-consuming process. We humans spend about one-third of our life sleeping and hence it's very important to choose the mattress that offers superb comfort and support at a competitive price.
There are lots of things to consider before heading for mattress shopping / mattress selection. To make it simple and easy, we (eFoam) have put together this in-depth ‘mattress buying guide’ for you.
Ask these 5 questions before choosing your mattress:
1. What mattress size do I need?
It’s very important to pick the right mattress for the bed size of your bedroom. Below table covers all the standard mattress sizes available to buy online or in-stores in the UK.
2.What type of mattress do I need?
The 4 most common types of mattress to choose from are Polyurethane Foam, Memory Foam, Innerspring, Latex Foam and Hybrid. Depending upon your budget, comfort, body types, sleeping position and lifespan, you can pick the right one.

3.What other features should I consider?
Apart from above, below are other features that you may like to consider while choosing a new mattress depending upon your needs and comfort.
4. Which mattress brand should I go for?
There are too many mattress brands available today which can get confusing to pick the right one for yourself. Most of these brands will at least have few high selling, quality products in one or more types of mattresses they sell. Some of the popular mattress brands in the UK are IKEA, Dunlopillo, Emma, Simba, Casper, Vispring etc.
It’s best to check online for customer unbiased reviews to learn about product comfort, durability, warranty/ guarantee, return policy, customer service, value for money, photos/videos etc. You’ll have to do your own homework by checking several review websites, spot fake reviews, compile a list of good ones and collect more details about the product by reviewing that brand’s website.
5. Should I buy online or from in-stores?
The mattress industry is currently very competitive. Many low-cost mattress brands have made it even worse. So in order to stay competitive, everyone is focusing on value over price. By visiting stores, you can actually physically check, lay on the mattress and get a feel on which one is best for you. On the other hand, if you buy online you see more trial offers where you can try the mattress before you buy.
