How to choose a single mattress

What size is a single mattress?

A single bed mattress is 190cm (6ft 3”) long and 90cm (3ft) wide. This 3ft mattress is a perfect size for a single adult or as a children’s mattress after transitioning from a cot bed. However, if you’d like something a little narrower, a small single mattress is also ideal for growing children.

What is the best single mattress for back pain?

If you suffer from a bad back, memory foam or orthopaedic mattresses are best for you as they are designed to help maintain the spine’s natural curve without doing any long-term damage. These mattresses are also soft enough to offer cushioning if you are in pain.

What is the best single mattress for children?

For children, a mattress with a firmer rating is usually recommended, as this supports growth. This is especially important for toddlers and young children. Pocket sprung or standard sprung mattresses are popular options for this.

At MattressNextDay, we cater to a range of budgets. We offer cheap 3ft single mattresses that don’t compromise on quality, medium-range options from industry-leading brands and a variety of higher-end products that are sure to help you to get a luxurious night’s sleep.

What are the different single mattress types?

There are lots of choices when it comes to buying a single mattress. Different fillings and structures will offer varying comfort levels. So, it’s important to find a mattress that is firm enough to support your joints while offering a comfortable night’s rest. Below are some of our most popular single mattresses, that go great with our single divan beds.

Standard sprung single mattress

Standard sprung mattresses, also known as open coil mattresses, are a popular option. These types of springs work as one whole unit to distribute your weight evenly. The Standard Spring type of mattress is also superb at supporting the spine when asleep.

Pocket sprung single mattress

A pocket sprung single mattress involves the individual springs being wrapped up in their own cloth sleeve. This gives them a more responsive feel throughout the night.

Latex single mattress

Latex single mattresses are hypoallergenic and totally breathable. This makes them a great choice for those who may suffer from allergies or need to feel cool to sleep properly.

Memory foam single mattress

This kind of mattress is very popular for both adults and children. The single memory foam mattress is made from a special foam material that moulds to the body shape of whoever sleeps on it.

Reflex foam single mattress

This is a mattress with a firm, solid feel thanks to the reflex foam material inside. This is superb for giving complete support to both adults and children.

How much does a single mattress cost?

Single mattresses cost less than larger options simply because they are smaller in size. However, you can pay as little or as much as you want, depending on the different fillings and structures available. A top of the range memory foam or pocket sprung single mattress will cost more than a standard sprung version. An orthopaedic mattress will also cost more than a budget mattress that’s a little softer. To save even more money, look for free UK mainland delivery services from MattressNextDay.
