What is the difference in the base springs and how will it effect my mattress ? balmfordhome asked 18th November 2018 Does it matter too much whether we go for a sprung or unsprung divan base for our pocket sprung mattress? I am 5 ft 2, 50kg. Husband is 6 ft 2, 75kg. Pocket springsBases 1 answer 0 Vote Up Vote Down Michaela Long Staff answered 4 months ago Hi there, Thank you for your enquiry via our website. The choice of which type of base to opt for is personal preference on how you would like your pocket sprung mattress to feel. Most mattresses are suitable for all bases but will have vastly different feels. A sprung base will soften the overall feel of your mattress while a platform divan will firm up the spings slightly. I hope this helps, if you would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact the office on 0161 437 4419. Kind Regards Michaela Why not have a look at our best sellers next?
