How to choose a mattress

To find the right mattress for you, you should think about:

1. Firm or medium firm?
We offer a variety of different mattresses. Deciding if you want a firm or medium firm mattress will help you narrow down your choice considerably.

2. Your budget
We have mattresses to fit every budget—from basic mattresses to mattresses made with high quality natural materials. But you can be sure that every one is designed to give you a good night’s sleep.

3. How does it feel?
The most important thing when choosing a mattress is to have a good lie down. Try the mattress without thick jackets and coats and in the position you usually fall asleep in. It is important that the mattress provide the right support. When lying in bed, the spine should be supported in its neutral position This way, you can tell if the mattress is a good match for you.

Is it fair to say that choosing a mattress is one of the most important decisions you can make in life? We don’t think so. The fact is that a good night’s sleep is the key to well-being. We sleep for one-third of our lives, which also means we spend roughly one-third of our life on different kinds of mattresses. Needless to say – a mattress matters! Everyone sleeps a little differently. Understanding the different mattress types will help you choose one which suits your sleep perfectly.


Mattress types

At IKEA, mattress selection has never been easier. You'll find the most popular mattress types and mattress toppers for your sleeping style, size, and comfort preferences. Do you prefer a firm or medium firm mattress that feels great to stretch out on, or a soft mattress that you can sink into like a dream? One mattress feels like sleeping on a field beneath the stars, another feels like resting on a cloud. The point being – everyone prefers a different kind of mattress.

Choosing a mattress requires you to consider the softness or firmness you prefer, but also what size feels most comfortable, and whether there’s a particular material that helps you sleep well. If you find yourself often waking up with aches or pains, chances are you need a different kind of mattress entirely.

Foam and latex mattresses

Foam and latex mattresses mould to the shape of your body and distribute your weight evenly. These mattresses provide support for your whole body without putting extra pressure on any specific body parts. They are also silent (no creaky springs!) and absorb the shock of movement. This makes foam and latex mattresses a great choice if you have a partner who tosses and turns in their sleep.

Spring mattresses

Our spring mattresses also distribute your weight evenly, so that there’s no extra pressure on any part of your body. A key difference to the foam and latex mattresses, however, is that the open spring construction helps air flow through the mattress. This supports the ventilation in the mattress and can help you keep cool while you sleep. For some, it may give the mattress a fresher, airier feeling.

Mattresses in different sizes

You won’t have any trouble finding a mattress in a size that perfectly fits your bedroom, whether it’s a huge master bedroom or a small and cozy space. All IKEA beds, mattresses, and bedding sold in Canada are sold in Standard North American sizes.
