The Happy Beds mattress selection
Happy Beds offers an enormous selection of mattresses.
This is great, as it ensures that every type of sleeper will find a perfect mattress.
But, it can also be terribly overwhelming - and confusing! 🤯
How do you even begin looking through the Happy Beds mattress maze?
And which mattress should you choose?
We’ve selected a few of our favourites above (☝️), but let’s help you make more sense of the Happy Beds mattress selection.
To navigate this space, it’s best to divide the Happy Beds mattresses into different types of materials.
Happy Beds mattress materials
Happy Beds offers a variety of mattress types, but most of them can be divided into one of five main categories:
- Memory foam mattresses
- Latex foam mattresses
- Reflex foam mattresses
- Open coil mattresses
- Pocket spring mattresses
None of the Happy Beds mattresses are 100% organic or sustainable, though many feature natural materials, including natural latex, wool, silk, and cotton. 🌱
A few of them are also infused with unique ingredients (like bamboo, cashmere, and aloe vera) to enhance sleep quality.
Memory foam mattresses
Many bed-in-a-box companies focus on memory foam mattresses.
This is because memory foam can be compressed so well, making it an excellent choice for vacuum-packing and delivery in a box. 📦
Memory foam has become increasingly popular over the last few years, primarily due to its orthopaedic qualities.
The material is heat-responsive and has the ability to mould itself perfectly to the contours of your body. 🤗
This provides phenomenal pressure relief and encourages optimal spinal alignment.
Latex mattresses are similar to memory foam in comfort and support, though they usually offer enhanced breathability.
While memory foam retains heat and sleeps quite hot, latex foam feels much cooler. ❄️
Latex is often preferred as a natural material, though many mattresses contain synthetic latex.
It’s rare to find pure latex mattresses - these are very expensive.
The Milam 100% Natural Premium Latex Mattress, for example, costs upwards of £1300. 😱
Many modern-day latex mattresses combine a layer of latex with other types of foam.
The Happy Beds Milk Vitality 2000, for example, combines pocket springs with memory foam, reflex foam, and latex foam.
It still offers the benefits of latex but comes without the hefty price tag.
Reflex foam isn’t always the most popular choice, but it can be perfect for some. 🙌
This type of foam is uber-supportive, making it an excellent choice for people prone to back pain, pure stomach or back sleepers, and heavier-weight individuals.
Open coil mattresses
Open coil mattresses are traditional innerspring mattresses.
They feature a core of interconnected coil springs that move together when pressure is applied.
Open coil mattresses tend to be very affordable, but they don’t always offer the best pressure relief or motion isolation. 😞
That said, it’s still possible to find some good open coil mattresses.
The Happy Beds Super Ortho Spring mattress, for example, is a very highly-rated open coil mattress that offers good levels of comfort and support despite the open coil system.
Pocket spring mattresses
We’re big fans of pocket spring mattresses.
Like open coil mattresses, a pocket sprung mattress is a type of innerspring bed. 🌀
But, in stark contrast to open coils, pocket springs are all individually wrapped in fabric pockets.
This allows them to react to pressure individually, limiting motion transfer and providing better support.
While Happy Beds offers dozens of different mattresses, their pocket spring mattresses are often the most acclaimed.
The Sleep Soul 2000, for example, is a highly-rated pocket sprung mattress that features an average of 2000 pocket springs for exceptional comfort and support.
Who are Happy Beds mattresses suitable for?
After all, not everyone can casually drop £1000 on a king-size bed. 👑
And that’s completely okay.
You can find low-cost mattress options with high-street competitors like Argos.
And if you’re looking for a high-quality mattress but don’t have the budget for a luxury model, then Happy Beds has got you covered!
Does Happy Beds offer good mattresses for couples?
Yes, couples are very likely to find a great mattress on Happy Beds. 👩❤️👨
We’d recommend sticking to pocket sprung mattresses with a pillow top for additional comfort.
All-foam mattresses are also great, especially in terms of motion transfer.
This means you won’t feel your partner toss and turn at night.
On the downside, you can often feel “stuck” in memory foam mattresses. 😳
This makes moving around on the bed more challenging, which isn’t the best option if you’re looking for a good mattress for sex.
Pocket spring mattresses offer couples the right amount of bounce, comfort, and support.
You could try the Sleep Soul 2000.
Stay away from open coil mattresses, though.
These are often too bouncy to share your bed with a partner comfortably.
Does Happy Beds offer good mattresses for seniors?
Happy Beds offers some great options for seniors. 👴👵
Most bed-in-a-box mattresses come in a standard height of 25 cm (9.8 inches).
Many of the Happy Beds mattresses are much deeper.
This is great for seniors, as it’ll be easier to get in and out of bed.
Many of the quality Happy Beds mattresses - like the pocket sprung options - also offer great edge support. ⛰
This means that you can sit quite comfortably on the edge of the bed, which is handy if you need a moment or two before getting up.
Does Happy Beds cater to individual requirements, like enhanced cooling or back pain?
Many Happy Beds models come with unique features that make them more or less suited to different types of people.
Their orthopaedic range, for example, has been specifically designed to help relieve pressure points and alleviate back pain.
And mattresses infused with bamboo or gel foam have unique cooling properties that make them better suited to hot sleepers. ❄️
Does Happy Beds offer good mattresses for children?
The Happy Beds children’s mattresses are surprisingly well-rated.
You’re very likely to find a few great quality options for your little one. 🧒
Happy Beds also offers a wide range of kids’ beds, including high sleepers, bunk beds, triple sleepers, loft beds, cabin beds.
Here are a few of our favourite Happy Beds kids’ mattresses:
Happy Beds mattress covers
Most Happy Beds mattresses feature a sleek and elegant design. 🎨
While budget, these mattresses certainly look pretty!
The mattress covers are as varied as the mattresses themselves, and you’ll find covers in a range of different materials and designs.
Here is a quick look at the most common Happy Beds covers:
- Tufted covers: These covers are designed to keep the mattress filling in place and offer a firmer sleeping surface.
- Quilted covers: The quilted covers are smoother, softer, and more comfortable.
- Pillow-top covers: Mattresses with pillow tops are the most cushioning, offering an additional layer of comfort.
- Removable covers: Some of the Happy Beds mattresses come with removable covers that can be dry cleaned.
Covers can be made of a range of materials, including nylon, polyester, jersey, or silk. 🐛
What else does Happy Beds offer?
Happy Beds really is a one-stop-shop for all things sleep-related. 😴
They offer a wide variety of different mattresses and dozens of other sleep accessories and bedroom furniture.
- Quality beds, including storage beds, wooden beds, metal beds, fabric beds, divan beds, ottoman beds, and trundle beds
- Sofa beds, chair beds, folding beds, guest beds, and TV beds
- Pillows and duvets
- Mattress toppers and mattress protectors
- Bedroom furniture, including different chest of drawers options, wardrobes, bedside tables, dressing tables, headboards, and bedroom accessories
Happy Beds even offers some of our favourite branded items, like the Panda products. 👇
Happy Beds mattress trial period
Unlike most other online mattress companies, Happy Beds does not offer a trial period. 😢
This means that you cannot try the mattress to see if you like it.
We like trial periods.
After all, how can you know if a mattress is right for you if you don’t have the chance to sleep on it?
Our favourite mattress brands all offer trial periods:
- Ergoflex offers a 30-night sleep trial.
- Brook + Wilde provides a 100-night sleep trial.
- Emma offers a 200-night sleep trial.
- Nectar offers a 365-night sleep trial.
It’s hard to compete with companies that offer risk-free trial periods.
But, of course, Happy Beds mattresses are also much cheaper than any of the above!
Happy Beds returns policy
Despite not offering a trial period, Happy Beds does offer a 15-day money-back guarantee. 👍
You can call customer services to return your product within 15 days as long as the product has not been taken out of its original packaging, assembled, or used.
