Firm Tension Support Mattresses are suited to those who prefer sleeping on their front and back. Typically sleeping on your back helps ensure the spine remains aligned throughout the night and is the most natural sleeping position that can prevent twisting and turning. A firm mattress ensures that a high level of support contours around your body, alleviating pressure across your entire frame in a more even manner than that of a soft mattress, most notably in the hips, neck and shoulders.Finally, if you are suffering from neck or back pain, a firm mattress can help alleviate these problems and result in a better and more relaxed sleep for many years to come.
The 60 night sleep trial from Millbrook Beds on behalf of Mattress Online is the answer that you've been looking for to buy a mattress with confidence online. See, the age old problem has always been around consumer satisfaction and buying online has always been difficult to gauge something as subjective as a mattress. With this scheme, if you are not completely satisfied with your Millbrook mattress, you can replace it free of charge for any other model. That means you can swap firmness and fillings without incurring costly collection fees and unnecessary customer service hassle. It makes purchasing a mattress online simple, just as it should be.
Wool is a great option for the comfort layer of mattresses for a number of reasons. First, it is breathable enough to allow air to flow sufficiently to ensure great all-season long cooling that won't have you too hot, or too cold. Additional to this you have other advantages like durability, flexibility, flame and water resistance. Ultimately wool is a sustainable and renewable option that is environmentally friendly and supremely comfortable.
The benefits of a double sided mattress are that you get twice the surface area of comfort layers. The real-world practicality of this means that you flip the mattress as well as rotate allowing for better settlement of fillings which increases longevity, while reducing the chance of dipping or spring problems that may otherwise occur. Ultimately the mattress will likely last longer and remain comfortable for a greater duration.
Pocket springs are like natures own springy piece of comfort, except they are not from nature. Alas, pocket springs are a very good part of a mattress and often found in the more premium models. Lower quality products will frequently use open coil spring setups, where pocket springs house each spring in a tiny pocket for additional stability and continued support. Pocket spring typically lasts longer than open coil due to this.
Firm mattresses are great for those looking for an extra bit of support, either because they have a higher BMI and leanm toward the heavier side, or because they have joint and muscle pain and appreciate a decent amount of support while they sleep. If you are not actively looking for a firm mattress it may be wise to consider something else from the range that is perhaps closer to the medium firmness rating
Natural materials like wool, cashmere and silk are often used in higher quality mattresses. Their benefits are numerous with many preferring the supreme softness on offer while others appreciate the environmentally friendly offering. Another core benefit of natural layers is that they are extremely breathable and as a result create a safe, hygienic and temperature regulated nights sleep.
One of the most common complaints in the industry is against mattresses with a weak mattress edge. It can often result in the user feeling like they are going to fall off the side of the bed and bed avoided. This mattress has a reinforced edge, something that helps ensure that particular scenario is avoided when you get close to a mattress edge while sleeping.
Hand Tufting is a labor intensive process that involves securing the fittings to a mattress rather than having them operate independently and loose within. This small act not only secures, but also leads to the mattress lasting longer and feeling firmer. A hand-tufted mattress is great for anyone looking for additional stability while they sleep.
Pocket Springs are a great support layer. Available in a variety of firmness's, the quality of a spring system is generally determined by the spring count. With 1000 springs this mattress represents a good quality to cost ratio, providing enough springs to successfully contour to your body and provide you with a great nights sleep.
Oh turning handles are pointless I hear you say. Just try flipping and turning this product without handles. It can be a pain. Remember that mattresses should be both rotated and flipped frequently, not a problem if you are opting for a sinle, but those doubles and kings can get heavy. Handles are very good.
When you sleep you also sweat, when this happens it generally leaks into the mattress. Sounds a little gross but that is the way it works, no drama however as matresses are built to be breathable and air out any moisture buildup, the addition of air vents helps ensure this happens with peak efficiency
This mattress comes with turning handles that will assist in the rotation and flipping of the product. May seem like no big deal selecting a mattress without handles, however, their use is critical in the movement of larger mattresses and can be the difference between pains and inconvenience and not,
Edge support is really important and often found in the more premium end of mattresses. This edge support allows the edges of the mattress to have the same degree of tension as the inside of the product giving you confidence in the edges and helping to prevent roll of through the strengthened edge.
A mattress warranty covers physical defects in a mattress, such as sagging over a certain threshold when not in use. Most mattress warranties last between 5-20 years, but as it is recommended to replace your mattress every 7-10 years this warranty will cover the life of your mattress.
Do you suffer from back pain? If so you will likely find that an orthopaedic mattress will be massively beneficial to you. Slightly firmer in the comfort side of things but ultimately with a better support layer means that your back and neck will thank you for years to come.
Handcrafted in the UK means that the product is built here, by people being paid a fair and honest wage using certified and safe products of good quality and construction. UK manufacturing is some of th best in the world and all of that is reflected in this product
Some people do not like the use of chemicals on the products they use. This has always proved somewhat tricky for fire resistance but in this instance the manufacturer has been able to assure fire resistance through alternative methods that still prove effective.
The natural fibres of cotton allow air to circulate through the product, creating a well-ventilated sleep environment. This ventilation helps regulate your body temperature throughout the night, preventing overheating and promoting a comfortable sleep experience.
Side stitching is really important as it prevents bulging of the side walls on pocket sprung mattresses. The side stitching is a process whereby the stitching on the edging of the mattress is attached to the outer springs and supporting bar within.
There are many benefits to cotton in mattresses, including its hypoallergenic properties, its ability to regulate body temperature, and its breathability. Cotton is also a very durable fabric, so it can withstand a lot of wear and tear.
The NBF is one of the most prestigious awarding federations in the industry, helped slightly by the fact that it is one of the only, however, it is still a great source of comfort knowing that this product holds approval by the team
Double sided just means that the product can be flipped and still retain the same level of comfort. The fillings and dibres inside the product are capable of operating in any direction. Handy for settlement and to prevent dipping.
A heat-sensitive mattress is a safer alternative to traditional models. It reacts to your body temperature, preventing overheating and discomfort. It helps to regulate your body temperature, leading to a more comfortable sleep.
Luxury wool, typically found in mattresses in a shredded and felted capacity is an upholstery fibre often used as a top comfort layer, but sometimes found further down in those mattress layers as part of the support structure
Fire resistant does not mean the product will never catch fire, rather, it will not go up in flames quite so quickly. Resistant to fire in the same way that I am resistant to kisses, sooner or later you end up giving in.
Most experts recommend a minimum 10 inches, 4 inches on the top layer and 6 inches for the core so this size is an ideal balance of size and performance. Generally, the heavier the load the deeper the mattress should be.
A depth of 24cm is about right for a good quality mattress. While the depth of a mattress is not necessarily a guarantee of quality, you typically cannot get the best comfort and suport out of a thin mattress
The M-Pure cover is a natural product that infuses with the fabric that creates an environmentally friendly and fire resistant product that doesn't have to use chemicals to create the desired affect.
These are made and manufactured in the UK, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine UK manufacturing.
A cotton mattress cover of fairly good quality and often preferable to damask covers and weaved covers. Your preference will vary though.
