IKEA Morgedal Mattress Review UK (2021)

Nicky

Last updated: 21.09.2021 4.5 Min.

The IKEA Morgedal is one of the most popular mattresses in the Swedish giant's mattress range.

Head's up: We weren't particularly impressed by this mattress and would much rather recommend mattresses of higher quality. You'll find more mattress reviews here.

We've also recommended some high-quality alternatives below.

Nonetheless, here is our detailed review of the IKEA Morgedal mattress.

Advantages

  • Incredibly low price
  • 90-day trial period
  • 25-year warranty

Disadvantages

  • Low quality and low density of the foam
  • Overly firm and creates uncomfortable pressure points
  • Additional delivery fees
  • 90-day trial period only valid for exchanges or credit vouchers; no money back

Recommended UK mattress alternatives

Even though the IKEA Morgedal is available at an exceptionally low price, it simply cannot compare with the higher-quality models available.

While these are often more expensive, we have selected the best high-quality mattresses available at the lowest prices as alternatives to IKEA Hövåg mattress.

These offer you superior comfort, support, stability, and customer service.

We highly recommend that you choose one of these models instead. After all, you'd expect to keep your mattress for the next ten years. Make sure that it is the best you can find.

IKEA Morgedal composition

The IKEA Morgedal mattress is available in two versions.

In the UK, you'll find a standard foam and a memory foam version, each of which has different densities. In mainland Europe, you'll also find a latex version.

Unfortunately, you can immediately tell that this is a low-quality mattress with an extremely low density of foam.

Here is a comparison of the two available versions.

Version Composition Our opinion
Foam High resilience polyurethane foam with a density of 35 kg/m³ and polyurethane foam with a density of 33 kg/m³. Low-quality materials.
Memory foam Polyurethane memory foam 50 kg/m³ and polyurethane foam with a density of 33 kg/m Low-quality materials. The memory foam does provide more comfort but not enough to impact the overall quality.

IKEA Morgedal firmness

The IKEA Morgedal is an incredibly firm mattress, which we've placed at 9 out of 10 on the Sleep Hero firmness scale, where 1 is the softest and 10 the firmest.

This is one of the firmest mattresses we have ever tested.

IKEA Morgedal Firmness

The IKEA Morgedal lacks elasticity and so creates uncomfortable pressure points.

Our test sleepers really felt that this mattress did not distribute pressure well and that it did not adapt well to the body at all.

We have become quite used to mattresses adapting well, so this was definitely unusual.

That said, the mattress may be suitable for heavier people.

Even those with a bodyweight of over 100 kg would not sink too deeply into the IKEA Morgedal and will benefit from good support.

The same problem with pressure points, however, would still exist, which can cause shoulder and neck pains.

If you do sleep on the IKEA Morgedal, then sleeping on your stomach would be the best bet.

The firmness of the mattress is due to the polyether foam, which is normally reserved for the lower layers of mattresses to help with stability and lifespan.

Even though this mattress will definitely last a long time, you should look elsewhere if you're looking for comfort.

IKEA Morgedal cover

The cover of the IKEA Morgedal mattress is white on top and dark grey on the sides.

It is made of 64% polyester and 36% cotton.

It is a durable cover and soft to the touch.

It is also thin enough to allow the foam inside to breathe easily. IKEA recommends washing the cover at a maximum temperature of 60 degrees.

Practical handles on the sides of the cover make it easy to move the mattress around.

IKEA Morgedal prices

The number one reason for wanting to purchase the IKEA Morgedal is its exceptional low prices.

Here is an overview of the prices in different dimensions.

Note that the below are the standard UK mattress sizes.

IKEA also offers mattresses in standard European sizes, also available in the UK.

Mattress size Price of IKEA Morgedal
IKEA Morgedal single mattress: 90 x 190 cm £129
IKEA Morgedal double mattress:135 x 190 cm £179
IKEA Morgedal king-size mattress:150 x 200 cm £229

IKEA Morgedal delivery & customer service

We bought the IKEA Morgedal mattress directly from the store.

It is wrapped in a plastic bag but getting it home is your own responsibility.

IKEA can deliver for you but this comes at an additional cost.

This cost will depend on the size and price of the mattress, as well as your address.

Delivery costs for larger items start from £39.

The delivery time is generally 5 to 7 business days.

SHOP IKEA ON AMAZON

Even though IKEA offers a standard 365-day returns period, this only applies to products that can be returned in a new, unused, and re-saleable condition, with the original packaging.

Mattresses fall under a 90-day love it or exchange it returns policy.

IKEA only offers an exchange or a credit note. So be prepared to spend the price of the mattress, even if you don't end up keeping it.

Returning the mattress is not easy either.

IKEA return conditions can be tricky and you will have to cover the cost of the return.

This is a pity as most other manufacturers cover the cost of delivery and return and will refund your mattress in full.

IKEA does offer an amazing 25-year guarantee on all mattresses, but we would not recommend keeping a mattress for that long.

Should you buy the IKEA Morgedal?

The IKEA Morgedal is too firm and of low quality.

It certainly has the advantage of being inexpensive but its comfort is severely limited.

That said, it may be suitable for heavier people, particularly if they're stomach sleepers, as they'll find the mattress gives them sufficient support and they won't sink in too deeply.

Frequently asked questions

  • About the manufacturer


    The Swedish furniture giant surely needs no introduction.

    Established in 1943 by billionaire business magnate Ingvar Kamprad, the idea behind IKEA was to offer a selection of furniture and household products suitable for the mass market and affordable for everyone.

    Inspired by Scandinavian minimalism, IKEA attached great importance to attractive design

    In the beginning, Kamprad only sold single products. The first IKEA catalogue was published in 1952.

    Today, this giant company has a total of 433 stores in 52 countries, employs around 155,00 people, and has an annual turnover of around £33 billion.

  • IKEA mattress range


    As a leading furniture manufacturer, it is no surprise that IKEA also features numerous mattresses. 

    Anyone who has ever visited an IKEA store knows that it can be a real retail jungle and you have to wander around the entire store. Only a small area of the store is allocated to the mattresses.

    Luckily, you can now also order IKEA mattresses online for at-home delivery (delivery costs not included). 

    IKEA now offers around thirty mattress models: foam mattresses, spring mattresses, children's mattresses, latex mattresses, and mattresses for babies. 

    The IKE mattresses have numerous attractive features, including their low prices, 25-year guarantee, 90-day trial period, and great financing options.

  • 90-day love it or exchange it policy


    Even though IKEA offers a standard 365-day returns period, this only applies to products that can be returned in a new, unused, and re-saleable condition, with the original packaging.

    Mattresses fall under a 90-day love it or exchange it returns policy. IKEA only offers an exchange or a credit note. So be prepared to spend the price of the mattress, even if you don't end up keeping it.

  • 25-year guarantee


    While we recommend replacing your mattress every 10 years, it is worth noting that IKEA offers a fantastic 25-year guarantee.

    This protects you from any manufacturing faults or unnatural damage to your mattress that is not a result of misuse.

    The terms & conditions of the IKEA 25-year guarantee and the relevant care instructions can be found in their guarantee brochures.
