The Sanctuary mattress is one of DFI most popular sellers as not only has it got a value price tag but also an orthopaedic, two sided pocket sprung mattress.

The most popular spec of the Sanctuary other than its 1200 pocket springs would be that you are able to turn it. Even though there isn’t evidence to prove this is better than one sided mattresses, it is still what customers prefer.

Two sleep surfaces helps with the mattress lasting longer and prevents sagging. Hand tufted and right in the middle of the firmness chart with medium firmness, it is one that is popular amongst the budget mattresses.
