What You Need To Know About Pocket Spring?
- Jan 10, 2018 -

Pocket springs are the foundation of high-quality mattresses and are a fundamental component that any mattress buyer should fully understand. The key thing to remember in this section is that pocket springs, types and counts should not be taken in isolation. Read on for all you need to know about pocket springs and why assessing their quality is essential to helping you find the right mattress.


We have always advocated for high-quality handmade pocket sprung mattresses over mass produced bags of springs, but there’s still a minefield of information on pocket springs which we aim to summarise for you. There are numerous variables that have to be applied in order for you to come to the right decision as to which is best for you.

For instance, there is no use having a super duper all singing all dancing pocket spring unit when
1. You don’t actually need it or
2. It is not backed up by an element of substantial upholstery.

As you browse through the internet looking for your perfect mattress you will soon see that in most cases great swathes of text is focused on how good the pocket springs are in any particular model, the science behind the design and how you will sleep like a baby. All of this will be relatively pointless if equal space is not designated to the rest of the mattress, the upholstery, the detailing and so forth.

The fact of the matter is, a standard pocket spring unit which forms the basis of many mattresses, will be suitable for practically everyone. It really is! They are not overly expensive and will offer you all the support you will require.
