Types of mattresses

Memory Foam

Just like it sounds, these mattresses only consist of memory foam. Memory foam mattresses are known for their great support, pressure relief, and body contouring. Historically, memory foam has had a bad reputation as “sleeping hot”. However, many newer more advanced memory foams have been designed with superior cooling properties, creating a much cooler mattress than traditional memory foams.

Pocket sprung mattresses are the most popular type of mattress among Limitless Home customers. A pocket sprung mattress contains individual springs, each sewn into its own pocket of fabric. This provides much more support and comfort than an open coil mattress, where each spring is lined together within a wire frame. View our Pocket Sprung Mattress range here.

Orthopaedic

Orthopaedic mattresses are quite unique in their qualities, as they are quite frequently used as aids to help people with back and neck problems get a good night’s sleep. Orthopaedic mattresses are designed to do a few different things. They’re supposed to relieve stress and pressure on joints, alleviate back pain and align the spine so it is straight while sleeping.

Latex

Latex is a premium solid core mattress material. Latex offers superior comfort and durability when compared to memory Foam and other mattress foams. Furthermore, it is incredibly durable with some examples of Latex beds being 40 years + in age and still offering support and comfort! Latex mattresses are among the most popular types of mattress because of their durability and comfort. Latex conforms to your body more generally than memory foam, and bounces back quickly.

Budget

Generally with 13.5 bonell spring, budget mattresses are ideal for spare/guest rooms. Generally light weight, and less thick than the standard mattresses, they however offer great value. View our Budget Mattress range here.

Gel

Gel mattresses combine memory foam and gel to create a comfortable mattress that’s quick to spring back and is cooler to sleep on than regular memory foam. View our Gel Mattress range here.
