Medium firm mattresses

A medium firm mattress provides the ideal firmness level for many sleepers, with options available in spring, memory foam and hybrid mattress styles. Medium firm mattresses typically fall between 5 and 7 on a 1-10 mattress firmness scale, with individual mattress factors like material also influencing their overall feel. IKEA offers a range of medium firm mattresses to suit your unique sleep needs and preferences.

A medium firm mattress makes a comfortable middle ground

Choosing the right mattress can be one of the most stressful purchase decisions we make. Oftentimes, what we thought we wanted doesn’t feel right at all, or we’re simply worried that we’ll make the wrong choice and wake up every day with achy regrets! With that in mind, many people opt for the not-too-firm and not-too-soft sweet spot that a medium firm mattress provides. You still sink in—but not too much!

Medium firm mattress vs. medium soft mattress

While it’s rare to see mattresses labeled as a medium soft mattress, it’s important to consider that the firmness level of all mattress styles falls within a range—a softness spectrum of sorts. Though firmness levels of any given mattress can range from 1 to 10—with 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest—you’ll typically only see three or four mattress classifications. These most often include soft mattresses, plush mattresses, mattress medium firm styles and firm mattresses.

A medium soft mattress would typically fall somewhere in the 4 out of 10 firmness range while a medium firm might measure at around a 6 out of 10. Both of these mattresses are solidly in the middle, but can appeal to different sleepers.

Find that you love the cradling welcome of memory foam after a long day, but also need firm support to keep your neck, back and spine happy? We recommend considering a hybrid medium firm mattress, which offers a classic spring system for optimal support with modern memory foam on top for the cushiony feel you crave.
