Mattress Depth

Mattresses now come in a range of depths for additional comfort.

The standard mattress is a thing of the past. There's such a wide choice of mattresses available on the market that it is easy to get confused. Differences in construction, the materials used, the mattress sizes and the levels of comfort, together with the need to choose something that really gives you the support you need, all combine to make mattress selection one of the hardest processes when it comes to choosing furniture for your home.

One of the things that mattress manufacturers have started to do is to produce mattresses of different depths. From a standard depth of 6-7 inches, mattresses can now be as deep as 10-15 inches, which can make a big difference to the way the mattress feels when you lie on it. The question is, does additional depth help you to sleep better?

Why choose a deeper mattress?

Manufacturers introduced deeper mattresses in order to cater to the luxury end of the mattress market. Like all consumer goods, mattresses range from budget versions to very high quality mattresses, and those at the top end of the market commanding the highest prices need to have several distinguishing features. For mattresses, those features include:

Construction - the method of construction is important. The better individually crafted the mattress is, the better it will perform for the sleeper.

Filling - whilst budget mattresses may restrict the quality of filling, luxury mattresses have no such bounds. Silk, mohair and cashmere are all popular fillings for these types of mattress.

Depth - a deep mattress not only makes a bed look more sumptuous, it gives the sleeper a more comfortable night. With construction, materials and fillings that can still produce a range of firmness, a deep mattress automatically gives the impression of luxury, whilst providing all the support that you need to sleep well.

If you're looking for a decadent feel to your mattress, look for those that are 9 inches deep or more. They will give you the right balance of luxury and support.
