Different IKEA mattress types
The Swedish brand has introduced three main types of mattress models in India.
These can be classified as:
- Spring mattresses
- Foam mattresses
- Latex mattresses
Let’s look at these in more detail.
IKEA spring mattresses
Spring mattresses are the most popular traditional mattresses used in Indian households.
These spring coil system designs can either be pocket sprung or innerspring.
The spring units are placed over a layer of other materials such as foam, latex, cotton, wool, etc.
Spring mattresses are known for their excellent support, superb ventilation, and a fair amount of bounce.
These comfy spring mattresses are recommended for heavier sleepers and those with back ache. 😩
The BEITO Sprung mattress, Hovag, and Vormedal are all examples of spring mattresses from IKEA.
IKEA foam mattresses
These all-foam mattresses are very effective in body contouring and provide pressure relief.
The IKEA polyurethane foam mattresses blend high-resilience, high-density, and regular-grade foams.
This is done to get a firm, supportive mattress surface.
All the lower-end inexpensive IKEA mattresses are made from a regular-grade poly foam material. 💰
IKEA uses premium quality memory foam in all its high-range models.
Memory foam is known for its capacity to reduce pain, relieve pressure, offer good support, and provide optimal spinal alignment.
The Moshult and Malfors mattresses are examples of foam mattresses from IKEA.
IKEA latex mattresses
IKEA always goes with the customer demand and its vision to use sustainable materials in its product.
The latex mattress range uses natural and more environmentally-friendly materials.
Latex is made from natural rubber and is an expensive material. 🤑
Mattresses built with natural fibres and materials are more bouncy, durable, hypoallergenic, and effective in relieving pressure.
They also offer good back support for back ache as compared to foam mattresses.
They are more eco-friendly as they use fewer chemicals during the manufacturing process.
When combined with coir/spring units as their base, these natural materials are considered among the best-designed mattresses.
The Vognill mattress is a latex mattress offered by IKEA.
It also comes with a waterproof mattress protector.
IKEA mattress sizes
IKEA mattresses have some typical European sizes.
The mattress sizes include:
- IKEA mattress single
- KEA mattress double
- IKEA mattress queen
- IKEA mattress king
Children and young adults who sleep alone could opt for single-size mattresses.
Queen-size IKEA mattresses will be suitable for older adults or students.
The king-size mattress is best for couples.
IKEA mattress delivery
Unlike other reputed Indian brands that offer free shipping on most of their mattress models, IKEA charges for its shipping and doorstep deliveries.
While checking out from the payment page, you will come across the delivery charges and have the option to add assembly (remember, it’s also chargeable).
Further, the estimated delivery time will be mentioned when the order is complete.
The delivery time and cost will vary depending on your postal zip code.
