On the back of our ‘May be time for a new mattress campaign’ which ran throughout May we wanted to find out “when you last bought a mattress, what did you buy?”

And here are the results:

The Sleep Council May-poll-300x190 Mattress Buying Habits

A third of you bought a mattress with a divan base and nearly a quarter bought with a frame. It was reassuring to see that just over half of you do buy a mattress with some kind of base but nearly a third (30%) bought just a mattress.

When buying a new bed it can be false economy to change only the mattress and keep the original base, especially if you are buying a divan set. The old base could reduce the useful life of the new mattress as well as the comfort and support it can offer. It can also invalidate manufacturers’ warranties or guarantees. A bed is a mattress and a base working together – don’t consider them in isolation.

Watch our Sleep Scientist explain why a new mattress on an old bed can seriously reduce its performance.
