What is the best type of mattress?
Each type of mattress has its own benefits, firm and feel. As each body is different, it is important to know your sleeping needs in order to choose a mattress that can provide you with the best support and comfort.

The open coil mattress is a popular budget option that contains one long piece of metal wire coiled into numerous springs. They are the most common type of mattresses, but with the new industry innovations, they tend to be less supportive than other mattresses.
Pocket Spring Mattress
Made from individual springs housed in their own pocket of fabric, providing more support than open coil mattresses.
Made from memory foam which is a mouldable material that also responds to temperature and weight and has hypo-allergenic properties.
Filled with latex foam, this type of mattresses are very breathable and they prevent overheating. They are also good for those suffering from allergies or asthma.
A combination of pocket springs and other materials such as memory foam or latex. They often come as a pocket spring base and a memory foam layer combining both comfort and support.
