How Often Should You Change Your Mattress?

The quality of your sleep largely depends on the quality of your mattress, making it one of the most essential investments you can make for your health and well-being.

Did you know? You spend around a third of your life in bed.

Sleep is a vital component of a healthy lifestyle, with a good mattress offering improved sleep quality, reduced pain and discomfort, allergy relief, better mental health, and long-term savings.

Signs You Need A New Mattress

As your mattress ages, it can lose its shape, support, and comfort due to wear and tear.

It is highly recommended that you replace your mattress every 7-8 years, and rotate your mattress regularly to ensure you are getting the best sleep possible.

It’s important to bear in mind that some mattresses are rotate-only, while others can be turned over entirely.

To ensure your mattress gets even usage and lasts as long as possible, it is recommended that you regularly turn the mattress, not only rotate it.

Important Factors feature

There are several signs that can indicate that your mattress is nearing the end of its lifespan:

Sagging or Indentations

Sagging or indentations in your mattress could be a sign that the internal structure is deteriorating.

It’s perfectly normal for a new, deeply-filled mattress to have indentations due to the top layers of natural upholstery settling and conforming to your body shape. This indicates that the mattress is functioning as intended.

Lack of Support

If you’re beginning to sink into your mattress, or you’re not getting proper support, it could mean that your mattress is losing its shape.

Exposed or Noisy Springs

If your mattress has springs, and you start to hear them squeaking or making other noises, it could be a sign that the springs are wearing out.

Similarly, exposed mattress springs can create an uncomfortable and painful sleep experience.


Over time, mattresses can accumulate dust mites, allergens, pet dander, mould spores, and other bacteria that can impact your health. 

If you suffer from allergies, it’s even more important to invest in a high-quality mattress that is designed to minimise the presence of allergens. 

Differences In Mattresses

We offer a range of options within our mattress collection, each designed to meet the needs of different sleepers.

Pocket Sprung Mattress

Pocket Sprung Mattresses are one of the most popular types of mattresses, providing the best level of support and comfort, as well as good airflow to regulate temperature. Many of our mattresses are available in a wide range of tensions to suit different body shapes and weights, with the majority naturally filled. All are sustainable using responsibly sourced and eco-friendly materials and are 100% recyclable at the end of their lifespan.

Hybrid Mattress

Hybrid Mattresses are a combination of pocket springs and latex, providing the comfort of pocket springs, alongside excellent support and pressure relief. Our hybrid mattresses contain Natural Latex which gives a soft, contouring later to the top of the mattress.

Natural Fibre Mattresses

Natural Fibre Mattresses contain springs and are made from materials such as wool that provides excellent temperature regulation and moisture-wicking properties, as well as good support and comfort. All of the wool used within our natural fibre mattresses is British wool, as well as natural, breathable materials such as horsehair.

Adjustable Mattress

Adjustable Mattresses are designed to be used with an adjustable bed base. This allows you to change the position of the mattress to support different sleeping positions. Having such flexibility with a bed is particularly beneficial for people with certain medical conditions.
