Mattress Buying Guide

How do I know which memory foam mattress to buy? 

There are so many memory foam mattresses on the market right now, and they cover every price point. So it’s incredibly important to understand what you’re paying for. 

Be wary of cheap imitations

This is your sleep we're talking about! You spend a third of your life in bed, and how you sleep impacts on every area of your waking life. So choose carefully! Be careful of buying a very cheap mattress. Many of the cheaper memory foam products available emanate from vast factories in the far east and suffer terribly from "off-gasing", a chemical smell typically found in cheap memory foam mattresses. You should always ensure your mattress meets the British fire safety standards.

I'm not even sure what memory foam is!

Memory foam is a type of visco-elastic foam. That might not leave you any the wiser of course! But have a look at our guide to memory foam, designed to help you understand the great benefits of this remarkable innovative mattress technology.

What sizes of memory foam mattress are available?

Dormeo Memory Foam Mattresses come in Single, Double, King and Super King sizes. If you’re at all unsure of any widths or lengths, the exact measurements can be seen in the diagram below.

What bed base is best for a memory foam mattress?

Ideally, your bed base should allow for good air circulation as to prevent any mould formation due to the Maltese humid environment. Wooden strips with a width of 4-5" and placed 3-4" apart would work just fine. If you have a proper slatted bed base with flexible slats, this can help circulate air while being even more comfortable.
