Most people these days are struggling to make ends meet, and this is reflected in the way we spend our money. We’re all looking for ways to save some cash without compromising on the things that are most important to us. For many of us this means buying cheaper versions of the things we need but can’t really afford right now. But is cutting costs always a smart move? In the case of a mattress, probably not. After all, you spend one-third of your life on it!
A bad night’s sleep has been shown to have negative effects on brain function and general well-being. And since mattresses are so expensive, it doesn’t make sense to cut costs here unless you know exactly what you’re getting into from the get-go. Luckily for you, the team at Emma has done extensive research into the world of mattresses (and its associated pitfalls) and developed a new product for those on a budget who still want to get a good night's sleep. There are many great options out there that won’t break the bank but still provide excellent value for your money – one such mattress is the Emma Essential Mattress.
Who is the Emma Essential Mattress for?
The Emma Essential Mattress is designed for people who are looking for a great night’s sleep at a very affordable price. This is not the type of mattress you’d buy if you’re a very heavy person or looking for enhanced orthopaedic support and should instead be considered for those on a budget and of typical weight and build (also great for children). The Essential mattress is best suited for people who want to save some money without sacrificing too much on quality.
The Emma Essentials still has a lot going for it though, with the same temperature-regulating and breathable hybrid foam seen in the Emma Original mattress. Furthermore you are also getting the same durable HRX foam used as a base layer which will help offer comparable support to that of other, more premium mattresses that typically utilise spring systems.
While the premium version of Emma mattresses feature upper memory foam layers, the Essential saves money by utilising hybrid open pored foam. It remains comfortable and has great breathable properties but does not have the same bounce back of traditional memory foam, that said, the compromise is not too noticeable and proves you can get good quality at a lower price point.
Why should you buy an Emma Essential Mattress?
The Emma Essential Mattress is one of the very few mattresses in the entry-level category that is actually worth the money. It’s made of fairly high-quality materials and is designed to last for years to come. This mattress is designed with sufficient support to your lower back and hips while providing enough firmness to keep you on your side, and has just the right amount of softness to keep you sleeping soundly all night. Overall, the Emma Essential Mattress is an excellent choice for anyone looking to buy a low-priced mattress that doesn’t sacrifice on quality.
Important features and benefits
The Emma Essential Mattress is made from 2 foam layers. The top layer is made from a breathable hybrid foam that gives your body the comfort it needs, with enough depth to help side sleepers sink while being plush enough to feel premium while on your back. The second layer is made from a HRX responsive foam that conforms to your body shape and provides just the right amount of softness while offering excellent value for your money. It’s a cheaper option to spring support, but helps ensure the product stays on budget.
The Emma Essential Mattress is a no-frills type of mattress that doesn’t have any fancy bells and whistles, but it does its job well.
