Do you want a good night’s sleep? Deciding which type of mattress to buy is only part of the story. Whether you prefer a pocket-sprung or a memory-foam mattress, our tests have found big differences between the best and worst of each mattress ‘type’.

Make the wrong choices and you risk being lumbered with a needlessly expensive mattress that’s uncomfortable, unsupportive and unable to stand the test of time without sagging and softening.

Thankfully, we’ve explained everything you need to know below to ensure you get the right mattress.

Types of mattress

Pocket-sprung, latex and memory-foam mattresses have all impressed in our tough tests, so the type of mattress you choose really comes down to personal preference and budget.

Pocket-sprung mattresses

If you want a traditional mattress with natural fillings, such as wool, you’ll want a pocket-sprung mattress.

With these, each spring is enclosed in its own fabric ‘pocket’ – each reacts to pressure from your body independently. However, these can be pricey and our tests show they can sag significantly over time.

Memory-foam mattresses

Memory-foam mattresses can be more durable and mould to your body shape but, in some cases, this can increase your body temperature and restrict your movement.

For more information about mattress types, see our guide to choosing the best type of mattress.

How much does a good mattress cost?

A new mattress can cost anywhere between £100 and several thousand. Factors such as brand, size and the types of material used can all have a significant impact on cost.

But, as the graph below shows, our mattress tests have found you don’t need to spend a fortune to get a mattress that will support your spine and last for years to come. Take a look at our list of the best cheap mattresses.

Number of Best Buy mattresses by price

What are the best mattress brands?

Our April 2018 survey of more than 5,000 mattress owners revealed that three in 10 Which? members bought their current mattress because it’s made by a brand they trust. If you’re not sure what the best mattress brands are, we can help.

Check out our guide to the best and worst mattress brands. This reveals what people think of the brand of mattress they own, including how comfortable their mattress is, and covers major brands such as Casper, Ikea, John Lewis, Sealy and Silentnight.

Soft vs firm mattresses

When it comes to firmness, the most important thing is to buy a mattress that you find comfortable.

Don’t buy a mattress that’s firmer than you’d like on the assumption that it will be more supportive. Time and again, our tests have shown you don’t have to buy a firm mattress to get excellent and long-lasting support.

Equally, don’t assume that a firm mattress in one store will feel the same in other shops. Firmness is subjective and manufacturers describe the firmness of their mattresses in a range of different ways.

That’s why we don’t use terms such as soft and firm in our reviews. Instead, we objectively test mattress firmness on a scale of one to 10, where one is the firmest and 10 the softest, so you can easily compare the firmness of different mattresses.

We also measure how supportive each mattress is for a range of different body sizes and sleeping positions.

Use our mattress reviews to arm yourself with a shortlist of supportive mattresses to try out in store.

Best mattresses: features to look out for

As mattresses serve a single basic function – to help us sleep – they don’t come overloaded with jazzy features. But there are still a few things to look out for.

  • One-sidedAs the name suggests, only one side of a one-sided mattress is designed to be slept on. Mattresses can be extremely heavy – the heaviest we’ve seen weighs more than 50kg – so you may be relieved not to feel obliged to flip it. You’ll probably still need to rotate it from head to toe, though, so it’s a good idea to check the ease of use rating in our mattress reviews.
  • Natural fillingsMany pocket-sprung mattresses also contain layers of synthetic fillings, such as foam. If you’re keen to avoid these, look out for mattresses specifically claim to be made using only natural materials.
  • Memory foamSimilarly, just because a mattress contains memory foam doesn’t make it a memory-foam mattress. We only class a mattress as memory foam if it contains more than just a token layer of the body moulding material. See all our memory foam mattress reviews.

Try before you buy

Buying a mattress online may be cheaper and more convenient but, unless you’re buying a bed-in-a-box mattress (see below), it’s always best to try before you buy.

When we asked Which? members about their experience of buying a mattress, more than a third of them told us they feel intimidated trying out a mattress in the shop. A good mattress shop shouldn’t mind you doing this. See our guide on the best mattress shops.

When trying out a mattress in-store:

  • Wear comfortable clothing and remove your outdoor gear.
  • Lie on a mattress for at least 10 minutes, in positions that you normally sleep in.
  • If the bed is for two, go with your partner.
  • Don’t shop for beds when you’re tired, as all the mattresses will feel great.
  • Don’t let sales assistants influence you – they can’t decide whether the mattress is comfortable for you.

If you’re buying a memory foam mattress, relax in one position, then move into another. Was it easy or did you struggle to move? If the latter, you might find the memory mattress will restrict your movement too much, especially in cold weather when the memory foam will be harder.

Should you buy a mattress online?

If you’re looking for a bargain mattress, one option is to try a few mattresses out in a shop, before going home to search for the best price online. That’s what 5% of Which? members did when they bought their last mattress, according to our 2018 survey of more than 5,000 mattress owners.

But around 14% bought online without trying their mattress first. That sounds risky – especially when we’ve just recommended you try a mattress before you buy – but it’s not if you buy a bed-in-a-box mattress.

Bed-in-a-box mattresses

These are mattresses that are bought online, vacuum-packed into a box and delivered direct to your door, and there are three reasons you should consider one:

  1. By cutting out the retailer and selling direct from manufacturer to consumer, many brands claim you’re getting a higher-quality mattress for less.
  2. Most online-only mattresses offer a sleep trial of at least 10 weeks. During this time you can try the mattress at home and send it back for a full refund if you don’t like it. In most cases, the manufacturer will collect the unwanted mattress from your house for free before recycling it or donating it to charity.
  3. We’re yet to test a bad one. More than half of the Best Buy mattresses we’ve uncovered can only be bought in a box.

Make sure your mattress fits your bed base

Manufacturers may encourage you to buy a mattress and bed base together, and this is a good idea if you’ve had your old base for many years.

If you buy the mattress and base separately, or are going to keep your old base, measure carefully to make sure they’re a good fit. Dimensions can vary so don’t rely on a new double mattress being exactly the same size as your old one.

Is your mattress going on to a slatted base? Then make sure that the slats are no more than 6cm wide or more than 4cm apart. This ensures sufficient ventilation, while preventing the mattress sagging through between the slats.

For more information, read our guide: What bed size do you need?

Check the guarantee/warranty on your mattress

Make sure you know what your rights are if there’s a problem with your mattress.

Most guarantees for mattresses will not cover gradual wear and tear, which leads to loss of support. So make sure you use our mattress reviews to pick out a durable mattress that will stand the test of time.

Most online-only mattresses offer a sleep trial of at least 10 weeks.

Before you buy your mattress, check whether there’s anything in particular, such as removing labels or using a base other than a recommended one, that would invalidate the guarantee.

How Much Does a Good Mattress Cost?

You can get a mattress for as little as $100, but would you really want to sleep on that? On the other hand, you don’t need to spend 6 figures, either. The price of a mattress depends on many things, including the type of mattress and the materials used to construct it. Usually, you can get a great bed for less than $1500.

Mattress Types

The first thing to decide is what type of bed you’re looking for. You may want to lay on a few to see what you like. You should also consider other factors when you’re choosing the type of bed you want. Look at the table below. Figure out what factors are important to you, and see if any one type of bed stands out.

Mattress TypeSupportHeatGood for SexOdorLifespan
FoamVery goodPoor to fairFairPoor8 years
LatexGoodFairGoodFair10 years
InnerspringGoodVery goodVery goodVery good7 years
HybridVery goodGoodVery goodFair9 years

These mattresses are made of high-density foam that conforms to your body as you sleep. They are supportive and comfortable, but they can hold heat so sleepers end up hot in the night. Some foam mattresses are made entirely of one kind of foam, while others have layers of different types. Memory foam and polyfoam are the most common materials for mattresses in this category.

Latex

These are similar to foam mattresses except that they use a latex foam instead of polyurethane or memory foams. These don’t hold heat like foam mattresses, but some people find them less comfortable. They are made from natural latex, synthetic latex, or a combination of the two. You can even get certified organic latex if you really want it.

Innerspring

Innerspring mattresses are your traditional coil mattresses. You can choose mattresses by the number of coils, whether the coils are in individual pockets, and the quality of padding between the coils and the sleeper. The padding is made up of layers of different materials designed to make the mattress softer and firmer, depending on sleeper preference.

Hybrid

Hybrid mattresses combine coils with foam or latex. The coils form one layer of the mattress, with the foam or latex layers on top. In hybrid mattresses, the coils are in individual pockets with foam or latex between the pockets. Some hybrid mattresses feature multiple layers of smaller coils and foam or latex, too. These beds are designed to be the best of both worlds.

Average Mattress Costs

Different mattress types have different price ranges. If you are concerned about how much your bed will cost, check out the table below and choose a bed type that tends to be less expensive. Note that the price range is for all bed sizes. In general, the average cost is for a Queen size bed.

Mattress TypePrice Range (twin to king)Average Cost (queen)
Foam$325-$1400$860
Latex$450-$5,000$1600
Innerspring$100-$2500$950
Hybrid$250-$4000$1850

What Factors Influence the Price of a Mattress?

Each type of mattress has different factors that influence how much it costs. In general, these focus on the type and quality of material used in the mattress. However, this plays out differently for each mattress type.

Foam Mattress Cost Considerations

When it comes to foam mattresses, cost often comes down to the density of the foam used in the mattress. In general, higher density foam is better. However, you can get foam that is so dense it ceases to be comfortable or supportive. For most people, ideal foam density is between 5.3 and 6.2 pounds.

Less dense foam is cheaper because it degrades faster and it stops returning to its original shape. This means that it is becoming less supportive and won’t last as long. Unfortunately, in the cheapest beds, this can even happen in a matter of a few months. You may pay less up front, but you’ll have to buy a new bed sooner, too.

Sometimes, you can find a foam bed with a layer of less dense foam on top of a layer of higher density foam. This can be the best of both worlds: you get the pressure-point relief of lower density foam with the support of higher density foam, for a price that’s somewhere in between.

Some specialty foams – like the copper-infused memory foam shown here – are more expensive.

Specialty foams, like those infused with copper or gel, will also be more expensive. Manufacturers claim that these additives make beds cooler, more comfortable, or both.

Polyfoam is different from memory foam, and it is less expensive, too. You may want to try a polyfoam bed before you buy it, though, or at least get a bed with a good return policy. Some people don’t notice much of a difference between the foams, while others don’t like the polyfoam nearly as much as the memory foam.

Latex Mattress Cost Considerations

The cost of a latex mattress depends a lot on the type of latex used. There are two processes that produce latex: the Dunlop process and the Talalay process. In general, Dunlop latex is denser while Talalay is softer. Talalay tends to be more expensive than Dunlop, though it’s also often described as more comfortable. The best deal may be a mattress that contains both, combining the supportive qualities of Dunlop with the pressure-point relief of Talalay.

Latex foam is created in one of two ways, the Dunlop or Talalay process.

If you want natural latex in your mattress, you will pay more than if you’re willing to have the synthetic version. Mattresses marked “100% natural latex” will be the most expensive, but that latex is tested to make sure it is, in fact, all natural. Some people complain about allergies to natural latex, but others like the fact their bed is all natural.

All-natural, organic latex mattresses cost even more. Just as organic food costs more because it requires different materials to grow the plants and be certified as organic, all-natural, organic latex beds are more expensive, too. If going organic is important to you, you can find these mattresses…you’ll just have to pay more for them.

Innerspring Mattress Cost Considerations

Traditionally, the quality of an innerspring mattress has been measured by its coil count. More coils made it more comfortable and, usually, more expensive. However, a high coil count does not guarantee comfort, though it almost always makes the bed cost more.

If possible, find out the gauge of the coils in an innerspring mattress you’re considering. Higher gauged coils are made out of thinner metal and won’t last as long, but they are less expensive. Lower gauged coils will last a long time, but they’ll cost you more.

Coil TypeCoil ShapeCoil GaugePrice
BonnellRounded hourglassAnywhere from low to high$
ContinuousStraight lineMedium to high$
OffsetHourglass with straight endsLow to medium$$
PocketedSpiraled and encasedHigh$$$

The composition of the comfort layer will also affect innerspring mattress pricing. That is the layer between you and the coils since you don’t want to lay directly on them. If this is made out of high-quality foam or latex, the bed will be more expensive. If it’s more like the layer on a traditional mattress, the bed won’t cost as much.

Finally, coils that are placed in individual pockets inside the mattress will cost more than coils that are next to each other with nothing in between. Placing all of that material in there to form the pockets cost something, and manufacturers will pass that cost on to you.

Hybrid Mattress Cost Considerations

First, make sure any hybrid mattress you’re buying is actually a hybrid. Technically, these mattresses need to have at least 2 inches of latex or memory foam in the comfort layer AND in a support core for pocketed coils. A mattress that uses a polyfoam support core does not count as a hybrid bed. Neither does a bed made out of multiple types of foam, without coils.

Some hybrid mattresses feature microcoils as a transitional layer in addition to the pocketed coils in the support core. These usually make the bed more expensive because of the support they add, though, whether they add to the comfort depends on the individual sleeper.

As this cross-section shows, a hybrid mattress uses a coil support base with layers of foam on top.

Beyond that, the price of hybrid mattresses is determined by a combination of the factors mentioned for foam and/or latex and innerspring beds. Higher density foam will be more expensive, as will lower gauge coils. All-natural latex will cost more, while synthetic will be less of an investment.

How to Get the Best Deal on Your Mattress

No matter how much or how little you spend, a mattress is a major investment. You want to spend your money well, but it never hurts to get a really good deal. Here are some ways to get the best price possible on your mattress.

Buy Online

Online-only mattress stores are becoming more and more popular, for good reason. These beds tend to be cheaper than what you can buy in the store, simply because these sellers don’t have to worry about the cost of a showroom. Many of these mattresses are high quality and score well when it comes to comfort and support, too.

Wait for a Deal

Get a further discount by waiting for a good deal. Cyber Monday, Amazon Prime day (if your mattress is available on Prime), Black Friday, Labor Day and more are all days where discounts are common. If you really need to score a good price to be able to buy the mattress you want, one of these days may offer the deal you need.

Get a Referral Deal

Many online mattress companies offer special deals if you buy through someone who refers you to them. They have deals worked out with bloggers and other people who have an online presence. When you buy through these folks, you can get a few extra dollars off your mattress.

Negotiate

It’s always worthwhile to ask if you can get a better deal. Most online mattress retailers have a number you can call. So call it and tell them you really like their bed but you can’t afford it. Gush if you need to, and offer proof of your financial situation. Many times, they can direct you to a coupon or help you find another way to save on your new mattress.

A mattress is an investment, but it doesn’t have to break the bank. If you need a new bed, it should be possible to get what you need without having to put yourself under financial stress. As a last resort, many mattress companies will allow you to make payments on your bed, though you will end up paying more than the retail price by the time you’re done.

In the end, your investment will be worth your while. When you have a bed that is comfortable and supports you well, you should sleep better. And good sleep is worth more than any price tag!

How Much Does A Mattress Cost in 2019? Complete Guide for Beginners

Is it time for you to buy a brand new mattress? Want to know what is the average mattress price in 2019? Welcome to the world of confusion.

Are you fed up waking tired and achy on your decades older not so comfortable mattress? Or does your mattress has started to look lumpy and, shaggy? Or you better sleep at hotels.

There could be many more reasons to buy a new mattress. But, I am not here to discuss that.

We’re here to discuss theaverage mattress priceand how much does a mattress cost you in the year 2019.

Good news is, you no longer need to go through the shopping which is the tricky part, and you’ve got more options than ever before. Offices and specialty stores are no longer the default destination to buy a mattress.

You can buy a great mattress at a fair price from an online retailer and get shipped right to your apartment without stepping out of it.

Let us now get started with the actual topic and discuss how much a new mattress would cost you.

The price of a mattress depends on five primary factors – Size, Width, Brand, Trial time, and Warranty Period.

You can’t ignore any of the above or else you will have to sleep on a mattress which doesn’t suit your needs for the next ten years.

FYI– You should change your mattress every 7-8 years or else it will start giving health problems. Don’t worry there are ways to get rid of your old mattress.

Table of Contents

Mattress Size

It is the single most important feature which decides the price range (not exact price) of a mattress. There is a total of 5 sizes of mattress available in the market.

Average Mattress Price Based on Size

Mattress SizeDimensions (Inches)Price Range
California King72 x 84300 – 1000$
King76 x 80250 – 800$
Queen60 x 80200 – 600$
Full XL54 x 79180 – 500$
Full54 x 74160 – 300$
Twin XL39 x 80100 – 300$
Twin39 x 7470 – 150$

As you may have seen from the above table, a mattress could cost you anywhere from $70 to $700 depending on the size you would like to shop. Make your budget of at least $500 if you want to get a good (if not best) mattress for you.

Note: The above prices are obtained from Amazon.com with a width of 8-11 inches.

Mattress Width

Width plays a significant role in the mattress price. If it were a movie, then width would have been the second hero after the size of the mattress. LOL!

There are four categories of mattresses depending upon its width.

  • Under 6 Inches
  • 6-7 Inches
  • 8-11 Inches
  • 12 Inches & Above

The width of a mattress is directly related to the comfort level of your sleep, so you should make sure that you’re not settling for a lower width. The most popular width size is between 8-11 inches.

Brand Name

It may not be crucial to some but getting a branded mattress is something you should always look. A brand name shows the trust and quality of a product.

For example, if you want to buy a new smartphone then you need not think twice before buying an iPhone or Samsung device.

But, you will have to do some research and look for user’s reviews before going for an unbranded and newly launched Chinese device.

Buying a mattress is not different either. If you want quality mattress without doing research then always opt for a branded one. However, it will cost you a few extra bucks.

On the other hand, if you’re short on budget and want to get the best mattress then do research, read user’s reviews, and buy a quality mattress from new companies or look for upcoming sales.

Some of the familiar names in mattress fields are Signature Sleep, Sleep Inc, Tuft and Needle Mattress, Comfort Magic, and Brentwood Home.

Trial Time (Return Period)

Again an important factor. You just can’t measure the quality and comfort level of a mattress by just touching it. For the perfect measurement, you will have to sleep on it.

If you’re shopping for an office of a specialist, then you can test the mattress by sleeping on it in the first place itself. While in the case of online shopping you will get this opportunity only after the delivery.

Online sellers like Amazon, provides a30-day hassle-free return policy. 2-3 Days sleep is all you need to test the mattress completely and tell whether it is perfect for you or not.

If yes, then keep it else get your money back or buy a new one. You don’t even need to ship or carry the mattress to their store; they will take care of it.

Tip:Return will not initiate if there are stains on the mattress after your use or some broken parts. Use mattress protectors to keep your mattress protected and returned readily.

Mattress Warranty Period

The warranty period is one of the most common things you will look for while buying any product. Nothing is perfect, and sooner or later there will be some defects in a product.

It is always good to have a longer warranty period as it covers the maintenance and repairing charge and keeps you free from the hassle.

As discussed above, you should use a mattress for a maximum of 10 years and not more than that with some exceptional cases.

Look for a mattress which is giving away at least ten years of the warranty period. Below than ten years could be an option as it will save your money but more than a decade warranty period is of no use. Buying a mattress with 15 or 20 years of warranty is a waste of money.

It is a shared understanding that the longer warranty period is, the higher you will need to pay.

You can keep your mattress protected and clean up to an extent by using mattress protectors but not forever.

So, now you have all it takes to buy a brand new mattress without creating a deep hole in your pocket.

Already bought a new mattress? Tell us a bit about it. How much does a mattress cost, what is the size, what is warranty period, and trial time?

Any questions for me? Just ask & I will be glad to answer them.

Tip:Return will not initiate if there are stains on the mattress after your use or some broken parts. Use mattress protectors to keep your mattress protected and returned readily.

Mattress Warranty Period

The warranty period is one of the most common things you will look for while buying any product. Nothing is perfect, and sooner or later there will be some defects in a product.

It is always good to have a longer warranty period as it covers the maintenance and repairing charge and keeps you free from the hassle.

As discussed above, you should use a mattress for a maximum of 10 years and not more than that with some exceptional cases.

Look for a mattress which is giving away at least ten years of the warranty period. Below than ten years could be an option as it will save your money but more than a decade warranty period is of no use. Buying a mattress with 15 or 20 years of warranty is a waste of money.

It is a shared understanding that the longer warranty period is, the higher you will need to pay.

You can keep your mattress protected and clean up to an extent by using mattress protectors but not forever.

So, now you have all it takes to buy a brand new mattress without creating a deep hole in your pocket.
