Frequently Asked Questions

Beds & Mattresses FAQs


Product information

What are your mattress sizes?

Our UK mattress sizes are as follows:

  • Cot: 1'8" x 3'9" (60cm x 120cm)
  • Single: 3' x 6'3" (90cm x 190cm)
  • Small double: 4' x 6'3" (120cm x 190cm)
  • Double: 4'6" x 6'3" (135cm x 190cm)
  • King: 5' x 6'6" (150cm x 200cm)
  • Super king: 6' x 6'6" (180cm x 200cm)

How often should I turn my bed?

Unless you have purchased a 'No Turn' mattress we recommend that during the first six months of use, your mattress should be turned every two weeks and then monthly thereafter.

You should alternate between turning the mattress over and rotating it from top-to-tail to ensure even settlement. If your mattress has handles, use these to position it on the divan base.

Do not allow the mattress to bang or fall against the side of the divan, as this may damage the spring system.

Although our 'No Turn' mattresses will never need to be turned over, we recommend that you rotate the mattress from top-to-tail regularly, following the instructions above, so that the mattress wears evenly.

How do I clean my mattress and/or base?

No mattress is completely colourfast. We, therefore, recommend that you use a mattress cover, which will protect it from coming into contact with body moisture or other liquids.

Do not use detergents or chemical cleaners on your mattress as this is likely to damage the fabric and stitching.

What should I expect from my new mattress?

60 night comfort exchange

Our comfort exchange gives you 60 nights to get really comfortable before making a decision. If you're still not loving your new mattress within 60 nights from delivery, you can exchange it for another mattress. It's as simple as that.

Here's how it works:

  1. Pick your new mattress on the official Silentnight website
  2. Sleep on it for at least 28 nights as it can take a little time to adjust to a new mattress
  3. If you're not happy after the initial 28 nights you can exchange it for a new mattress, as long as you claim within 60 nights of delivery
