Everyone loves to get a bargain, but as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for, especially with a mattress. Let me give my advice and help you choose how much you should spend on a mattress.

Mattresses from €149

These mattresses would typically be an open coil spring mattress. They are a traditionally spring. The Traditional spring is formed together in continuous rows which connect together. This type of mattress is perfect for a spare room, or a kid’s mattress. Cheap and cheerful.

I have linked these mattresses below –

DFI’s best value mattress would be the Luxury Orthopedic Mattress,

DFI’s Hush Kids mattress. 

Mattresses from €265 -

Mattresses varying in this price range would be a combination of memory foam and pocket sprung mattresses. A pocket sprung mattress consists of individual springs that are designed to support any body movements and ensures comfort by targeting different pressure points in your body. Memory foam reduces these pressure points.Tossing and turning is the leading cause of a poor night's sleep which is drastically reduced with a memory foam mattress.
Having the best of both words within this price range is fantastic value for money.
I have included some of our most popular pocket sprung and memory foam mattresses, you can upgrade to a better mattress for as little as €70and it comes recommended by hundreds of customers -

For a superior level of comfort and a more luxurious mattress, those with a higher pocket count will always be best suited if you are looking the best of the best!

Any pocket count between 2000 – 4000 has a better body support and also increases the life span of the mattress. The bestselling and top of the range links are included-
