What’s inside a mattress?

At Tanstella, a premier multi-brand store serving the discerning customers of Australia, we're here to pull back the sheets and reveal the hidden world inside your mattress. From the cozy single-bed mattresses perfect for a solo sleeper to the spacious luxury of king-bed mattresses, every mattress has a story. Let's dive in.

The Anatomy of a Mattress: A Layer by Layer Guide

A mattress is much more than a simple piece of furniture; it's a complex assembly of layers, each with its own function. Whether you're dozing off on a queen-bed mattress or a double-bed mattress, here's what lies beneath:

  1. The Cover: The first layer, often made from soft, breathable fabric, is your mattress's first line of defense. It's not just for aesthetics; it also offers comfort and protection.

  2. Comfort Layers: Directly beneath the cover, you'll find the comfort layers. These can vary widely, from luxurious memory foam mattresses that contour to your body to the resilient bounce of latex mattresses. For an added layer of cosiness, pillow-top mattresses and euro-top mattresses boast an extra padding stitched on top.

  3. Support Core: The heart of your mattress, providing structure and longevity. Here, you might find pocket spring mattresses, with individually wrapped coils, offering targeted support and reducing motion transfer - a blessing for those with restless partners.

  4. Foundation Layer: The unsung hero of your mattress, this layer provides a stable base, ensuring the comfort and support layers perform at their best

  5. Enhancements: Many mattresses come with additional features like cooling gels in memory foam mattresses or reinforced edges for extra sleeping space and durability.

Selecting Your Perfect Mattress

With a myriad of options at Tanstella, from king-single bed mattresses for the growing teenager to the full luxury of king bed mattresses, it's essential to consider your unique needs:

  • Size: Consider the size of your room and if you share your bed. More space can equal a more restful sleep.
  • Material: Do you prefer the hug of memory foam or the bounce of springs? Each material offers different benefits.
  • Firmness: This is subjective and varies from person to person. It often depends on your sleeping position and personal preference.
  • Budget: Mattresses are a long-term investment. Don't compromise on quality; look for the best you can afford.
