Mattress Buying Guide

Mattress Buying Guide

Buying a mattress is not as simple as it’s led to believe, it’s a big investment which requires sufficient research to ensure customers find the right mattress for their sleep needs.

With new technology and additional features coming to light, customers are easily spoilt for choice. 

There are so many types of mattresses, sizes, and levels of firmness all at varying prices that make research even more important in customers' purchasing decisions.


With that being said, we hope our mattress buying guide will be a helpful and informative tool which will make your mattress buying decision easier.

Advantages of Buying a Mattress

Improved Sleep

Sleep is the most important benefit of purchasing a good, quality mattress. 

If you don’t sleep well it can easily impact the whole of your day, impacting how well you perform your daily activities. 

For example, when you’re at work and you’ve not had the best night of sleep, this is likely to make you lose concentration.

Chances are you’ll be relying too much on coffee for energy!

By purchasing a quality mattress, you will be able to have more consistent and less broken sleep patterns.

Reduce Aches & Pains

Another major benefit of a quality mattress is that it helps reduce aches and pains.

It’s no secret that at one point during our lives, we’ve suffered from back pain and that could be a result of a poor quality and hard mattress.

We can’t promise that we will completely eliminate all aches and pains but having a comfortable mattress can be a good starting point.

By purchasing one of our hybrid mattresses, you will get the best of both worlds which includes varying levels of firmness for added comfort, support and pressure relief.

Unsure if you require a custom-fit mattress? Why not visit one of our locations and talk to our experienced team about your mattress requirements.

Temperature Regulating

There is nothing worse than a mattress that makes you overheat during the night or in other scenarios makes you wake up feeling far too cold.

Investing in a temperature-controlled mattress is the best way to achieve the quality of sleep you’re looking for. 

All of our Latex and Hybrid mattresses are temperature regulating so that during those winter and slightly hotter months that you feel comfortable at night.

We highly recommend you don’t compromise the quality of your mattress when it comes to a good night’s sleep.

Types of Mattresses: Latex & Hybrid Mattress

At Fawcett, we provide two different types of mattresses, Latex & Hybrid.

Latex Mattress: This type of mattress is made using a core of Natural Talalay Latex. At Fawcett, we use natural latex so there are no harmful chemicals like the ones in polyurethane foams based mattresses that other company’s sell.

Hybrid Mattress: We provide several models of mattresses that layer both natural latex and pocket coil springs. Both types of materials have been used by the team at Fawcett Mattress which has developed a range of high quality hybrid mattresses for you to choose from.
