So, you'll be sure to find the best mattress for you.

A mattress lasts for seven years of use, so it's definitely worth splurging on one so you can get a decent night's kip every night – you'll sleep even better if it's bought in the sale of course. Sleep is super important for our physical and mental well being, so getting a mattress which offers you enough support and comfort is essential.

Best single mattress deals

UK: Single mattress size: 90cm x 190cm approx. Depth varies.

As the name suggests, a single mattress is suitable for single individuals. It's an ideal choice for a children's bedroom as their first 'grown-up' bed, or would be suitable for use in the often smaller guest bedroom.

Best double mattress deals

UK: Double mattress size: 135cm x 190cm approx. Depth varies.

The double mattress, also known as a full-size in the US, is a good option for your first bed big enough for two. It's 54 inches wide so if you or your partner are prone to moving around much during sleep it might be worth considering something larger. Smaller apartments or guest rooms might be a better match with this size.

Best king size mattress deals

UK: King-size mattress size: 152cm x 198cm approx. Depth varies.

For professional sprawlers or families with young children who like to hop in bed with their parents some nights or early mornings, as far as bedroom sizes go, you'll be needing a room measuring around 12ft x 10ft. More often than not, this is the biggest size most manufacturers do for mattresses. 

Best super king mattress deals

UK: Super king mattress size: 180cm x 200cm

This is the biggest size of mattress available in the UK which is one which many of us dream about having in the bedroom so you can feel like you're sleeping like royalty. It's ideal for taller people and those with invading kids or a sleeping dog at the end of the bed.

Mattress topper deals

It's a smart idea, that if you're buying a new mattress, to also buy a topper with it. Not only does a mattress topper supplement the comfort of your mattress, but it can also add support to a mattress that may be too soft or firm for your liking.

Read our best mattress toppers guide or see below for the best ones and their cheapest prices.

Mattress protector deals

Along with your new mattress purchase, you're going to want to add a mattress protector to your basket, too. After all, there's no point in forking out lots of money on an expensive, luxury mattress if you're not going to protect it, right? A mattress protector is an item of removable bedding which simply just sits on top of your mattress to protect it from spillages or stains and also allergens and irritants like bed bugs, mould or dead skin.
