As well as choosing the internal mattress that is best for yourselves (see picking the right mattress guide here) you’ll also need to decide what finishing options for your mattress will be the best.
A mattress with a quilted finish is usually known to be smoother in comparison to some other finishes. The quilting is attached to the underlying filling of the surface and gives added comfort.
If you require a mattress that give firm and all-round support then an orthopedic mattress will be ideal. It gives solid support for your back and joints whilst still providing comfort.
Mattresses with a tufted finish are ideal to prevent loose fillings being moved or removed during use. This finish is most often used with a pocket sprung mattress. Tapes are used to secure the mattress at regular intervals, and this will usually result in the mattress having a firmer feel.
A pillow top finish provides the mattress with an extra layer of comfort on top. It is just like a pillow, but for the whole mattress surface. This means that the mattress will not require to be flipped but instead rotated 180°, from end to end so that the head and foot ends become opposite.
