Here at Want Mattress, we have got a huge range of traditional spring mattresses, more frequently called an open spring mattress. These mattresses provide amazing value for money while still providing a fair amount of comfort. I personally prefer Pocket Spring Mattresses for their even and well-contoured support, however, the benefits to open coil are reflected heavily in the often discounted price. What is a traditional spring mattress? An open coil mattress is basically a series of springs all connected together with a unified border of thick gauge wire that keeps everything in the right position. The springs cover the entire base of the mattress and provide even support, helping to ensure that you get a good night\u0027s sleep with an amount of body contouring while reducing pressure on joints What are the benefits of an open spring mattress? When it comes to the performance of these mattresses, the main benefit relates to the support to cost stance. The general consensus is that a good pocket spring mattress will generally perform better than a good open coil mattress, however, paying hundreds of pounds more for what many amount to a marginal gain in support and comfort is negligible. The traditional spring mattresses can also come in a variety of different comfort grades allowing you to experience soft, medium and firm mattresses depending on your needs.
