What are the different types of mattresses?

These are the main types of mattresses. Within each type you’ll find a lot of different options so you can choose the best comfort and support for you to get a good night’s sleep.

In sprung mattresses the springs help keep your body in a comfortable, supported position. Your weight is spread evenly over the whole mattress, so there’s not too much pressure on any part of you. They include at least one layer of foam for added comfort.
Foam and latex mattresses can contain different types of foam, including memory foam, but they all provide good support, adapt their shape to the contours of your body, and absorb the shock of body movements.

How to choose the best mattress for you

Looking for tips to help make the right choice for a good night’s sleep? Here’s a quick guide to how to choose your new mattress.

See the mattress guide

We don’t think it is fair to say that choosing a mattress is one of the most important decisions you can make in life. 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 bed 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

Mattress selection at IKEA is easier than you think. You'll find the most popular mattress types and toppers for your sleeping style, size, and comfort preferences. Do you prefer a broad and 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 bed 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 bed 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 bed 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 sleeping quarter, whether it’s an enormous master bedroom or a small and cosy space. See below the most common mattress size dimensions;

· Single mattresses – normally 90x200 cm

· Double mattresses – normally 135x190 cm or 135x195 cm
