Hi, just narrowing down our choice of mattresses. We\’re looking at the Artisan but can\’t decide on the 2000 or 1500 kingsize. We weigh 12.5 st and 14st respectively.Aiming to retain a slatted wooden base – would I need to cover this with 3mm hardboard or equivalent?Topper – is this necessary?Much appreciated…..
The difference between the Artisan 1500 and the Artisan Tailored Pocket 2000 is not only the amount of natural fillings but also the spring unit used in each mattress.
The Artisan 1500 has 50/50 natural fillings and man made fillings and has a medium comfort layer and the Artisan Tailored Pocket 2000 has 85% natural fillings and has a double layer of springs which actually gives the mattress a slightly firmer spring tension. The overall comfort layers in the Artisan Tailored Pocket 2000 is medium.
If either of the two mattresses are placed onto a solid base, this will firm the mattress up again.
We would not advise using a topper at this stage as you need to sleep on the mattress to get to know what the top layers actually feel like. If the mattress appears to be a little too firm, then by all means add a topper to give you some extra comfort layers.
We hope the above is of assistance but please do not hesitate to contact the office should you require any further advice on 0161 945 3757.
