Mattress Buying Guide

Try the Mattress

Lying on the mattress is the only way to find out if it suits you. Take your time when testing the mattress and ideally lay in the same position as you wouldat home. The mattress should be wide enough for your elbows to stay on the mattress when you lay on your back with your arms down. The right pillow also determines how comfortable your mattress can be. JYSK offers a wide selection of different pillows to ensure the rest is right for you.

Weight

Your weight helps to determine the right level of firmness of your mattress. A heavier person will usually be more comfortable on a firmer mattress, whereas a lighter person should consider a softer mattress.

Mattress Categories

We categorize our mattresses into three categories to help you narrow down your choice: firm, soft medium, and plush

Firm

A firm mattress is designed to offer optimal support, limiting the amount of give in the surface. They will have a layer of cushioning to offer you a comfortable surface, but these layers typically aren’t as soft as some other mattress models. A firm bed is recommended for back or stomach sleepers; they help create a comfortable night’s rest by limiting the flex in your spine, preventing lower back pain.

Soft Medium

The layer of cushion is more generous in a Soft Medium bed, while still offering a relative degree of firmness. Recommended for stomach, back, and side sleepers, a soft medium can be accommodating for those who turn in their sleep, providing support where needed, and comfort throughout.

Plush

A plush mattress offers the highest degree of cushion, in some cases plush mattresses will include pillow-top layers for comfort. Ideal for side and back sleepers, the plush layer allows for pressure relief for your shoulder, your arm, and your hip when you’re on your side, or it can help support the small of your back when sleeping on your back. Plush mattresses may not be the ideal choice for stomach sleepers, and can be less durable than firmer mattresses.


 

Support Types

Your new mattress can be created in a number of ways, using some very different materials and techniques.

Pocket Coil

Individually wrapped mattress coils or “Pocket Coils” are a popular, modern support system that provides personalized comfort by matching the contours of your body; they’re an excellent choice for anyone who may move while they’re sleeping, or who sleeps with someone who does. Pocket Coils isolate motion and help prevent sleep from being disturbed. Pocket Coils are extremely durable and deliver long-lasting support and comfort.

Verticoil Innerspring

A classic design that has been around for over 100 years, the Verticoil Innerspring offers support and rigidity in an economical package. While you’ll feel more motion transfer with a vertical innerspring, some sleepers prefer the overall feel that this type of support gives.

Memory Foam Mattresses

Usually assembled with a latex base and topped with a layer of memory foam, these mattresses offer advanced temperature control and air flow to help reduce hot-spots. These multi-layered mattresses conform to your body with firmness that reflects the labelled mattress category. Many layered Memory Foam Mattresses will ship in rectangular boxes that are easy to transport; the mattress will unfold and rise over the course of a few hours when you open it at home.


 

Mattress toppers

You can enhance your bed with a mattress topper to give it the feel and comfort you’re looking for.

Feather / Fibre Toppers

Filled with feathers or a fibre-based feather alternative, these mattress topers rest on top your your mattress, cradling your body with additional support. They generally are in the Plush category, providing additional padding and comfort, and can be used to give old mattresses a “new mattress feel” without spending more money to replace the mattress itself. While a feather or fibre mattress topper will cradle your body, it does not conform to it like a foam mattress topper will.

Foam Mattress Toppers

There are two types of foam mattress toppers: memory foam and egg crate foam. Egg crate foam looks similar to supermarket egg crates, and is made from a high-density dimpled foam, while memory foam is made from dense polyfoam.

Both types of toppers come in various sizes and thicknesses; egg crate foam toppers help distribute your body weight, providing a comfortable level of support that helps with circulation while sleeping, while memory foam pads former directly to your body, softening in warmer areas of your body while remaining firm and cool in other areas, offering good temperature control and support.


 

Hypoallergenic bedding lines

The Greenfirst® line of bedding is based on a hypoallergenic treatment for textiles, containing essential oil extracts of lemon, lavender, and eucalyptus. This treatment helps protect against  mites, and is accepted under the Oeko-Text 100 Standard. Each bed in this line is treatment traceable through a numbered label, and the treatment does not contain any chemical fixatives or active ingredients. The only active ingredient in the Greenfirst® line is geraniol, making it an effective answer against pests and allergies.

Sertapedic®

The Sertapedic Mattress collection offers the quality and comfort expected from the Serta brand at an exceptional value. Our Sertapedic mattresses feature SertaFlex™ Innerspring continuous coil designs that deliver real flexibility while responding to the contours of your body while you sleep. With increased surface coverage compared to other value-priced innerspring mattresses, it helps to provide enhanced conformability, comfort, and support.

Mattress Warranty Overview

JYSK offers trusted brand name mattresses with quality and durability, assuring the customer the most comfortable and healthful night’s sleep. The promise is backed by our vendor quality assurance program and one of the most stringent and enforced product quality programs in the home furnishings industry.
