Sleep Better For Your Budget

So, you’re looking for a brand new mattress, and you’re after the best deal you can get for your budget. Well, if your spending needs to be tight, then the good news is there are plenty of cheap mattress deals to be found. 

However, just because your budget is limited doesn’t mean you have to settle for a cheaply made mattress. In fact, you can easily find a well-made, high quality, luxury mattress without ever breaking the bank. And we wanted to help you do just that, so you can get the soothing and supportive sleep you deserve for your money…

Avoid the boxed beds

It’s important to realise that when searching for a mattress online, you’ll likely see a lot of ‘bed in a box’ deals. Although these so-called ‘bargains’ sound easy and affordable, they also adhere to a one-size-fits-all model. These cheaply-made boxed mattresses offer no spring tension options, so you can’t tailor them accordingly to your body weight and height. 

You’ll find that the majority of them simply state that they have a ‘medium feel’ with a ‘softer sink’. Which means you need to be the ideal weight for the foams contained within these beds, otherwise you’ll soon be feeling unsupported and uncomfortable at night. Also, these cheaply made sleep surfaces won’t even give you any exact figures when it comes to how much materials they contain etc, making it impossible to compare them to other mattresses. 

Don’t compromise on quality

Remember, any quality luxury mattress that’s been built to give you a satisfying sleep experience can’t simply be crushed and rolled, like any cheaper foam alternative. Instead of blowing your budget on a boxed mattresses that has a considerably shorter lifespan due to the fact that it’s only one-sided. We always recommend opting for a two-sided pocket sprung well-upholstered mattress.

Again, this doesn’t mean having to spend more than you can comfortably afford, as our popular Origins 1500 combines sumptuous layers of luxurious fillings on top of a 1500 pocket-spring unit, for a soothingly supportive sleep experience. Starting from just £505, it’s got a similar price point, but the upholstery and spring unit far exceed the quantities and GSM of boxed mattresses. This luxury mattress can’t be boxed, as there are too many fibres inside it to be easily crushed. 

Similarly, our Artisan 1500 is our hugely popular natural and man made fibre mattress, which is frankly unbeatable in terms of components and price. It has been expertly crafted to emulate the feel of the Artisan Naturals but priced for your budget. From £565, you can get a sleep surface that offers exceptional levels of comfort and support. If this is the limit of your budget, then this is quite simply the best luxury mattress you can buy for your money.

Ask before you buy

When it comes to how much you should spend on a new mattress, the answer is always as much as you can comfortably afford to get what you want. It’s true that you really do get what you pay for when it comes to mattresses. And given that you’ll use it pretty much every day, it’s vital for your health and wellbeing that you get the right level support and comfort you need for a decent night’s sleep.

You don’t need to overspend to get a luxury mattress, but before you make any decisions, make sure you ask as many questions as you need to. It’s important to delve deep into what makes a mattress right for you. A mattress is an investment and not simply a one-off purchase, so don’t rush into buying something – it’s essential to be as informed as possible in order for you to sleep better for your budget.
