The secret to a great night's sleep

Where to start when buying a mattress?

We've been chatting to @LovedbyParents today about choosing a bed. On the lookout for a new mattress for a tall four year old, they asked us which would be most suitable. They needed help to solve the confusion when looking to purchase a mattress, as there are many different bed names.

We pride ourselves here at Silentnight on providing sleep solutions for the whole family. From a first cot bed, to a retirement treat. We understand that this brings with it a vast selection to choose from, but with so many different shapes and sizes of people, it makes sense to offer something for everyone.

So, we've put together some useful advice to help you decide on the best mattress for you. After all, your mattress is one thing that shouldn't keep you awake at night!

We're here to help and can always help you on our Facebook or Twitter page.


One of the first hurdles when choosing a mattress is knowing what the spring count means. As a general rule, the higher the spring count the firmer the support is.

One of the most common causes of poor quality sleep is overheating. If you find yourself waking up hot during the night then Silentnight's Geltex Ultimate range could include the mattress for you. Our most unique range of beds, Geltex, offers a combination of unparalleled breathability, perfect pressure relief, and optimal body support.

Our brand new Miraform beds bring the latest technology to align the spine and provide superior pressure relief, available in two different support options.

If you're one of the millions who suffer from allergies in the UK, then consider choosing a Silentnight mattress with Purotex technology. Purotex is approved by Allergy UK and proven to combat dust mite allergies.
