Our most popular Ikea mattress review. The Morgedal is a cheap and cheerful, basic memory foam mattress, almost identical to the . It's made up of a 7.5cm foam core with another 10cm of memory foam on top. It's marketed as medium-firm and, when we tested it, we agreed. It's rated a 5.7 (on a scale where one is firmest and 10 softest).
We like: Arrives rolled up, doesn't need to be flipped over, not too warm to sleep on
We don't like: Cover isn't removable for washing
Our second most popular Ikea mattress; this cheap pocket-sprung mattress could be a good choice if you're not a fan of memory foam mattresses. Its pocket-sprung core is topped with thin layers of foam to add to the overall comfort. It's rated as average warmth to sleep on, so should be good for most people and the version we tested is marketed as a medium-firm mattress. Our independent tests rated is as a six (on a scale where one is firmest and 10 is softest), so we'd agreed with Ikea. If you prefer something a little firmer, there's also a firm version available. It isn't too warm to sleep on, either.
This bonnell spring mattress has been in Ikea's range for a while, but it's still one of the cheapest pocket sprung mattresses we've tested. Bonnell (aka open coil) spring mattresses are made of single springs attached to one wire. Ikea says this type of mattress is more suitable for those who sleep alone than with a bedfellow.
On top of the springs are several layers including 4cm of foam.We tested the firm version of the Hamarvik, but in our own firmness tests it ranked as five (on a scale where one is the firmest and 10 the softest).
Expensive for an Ikea mattress - currently Ikea's most expensive pocket-sprung standard double mattress - but cheaper than most other brands.
For your money, you'll get a mattress with an 18cm pocket-sprung core, surrounded by natural materials such as latex, coconut fibre and wool. The textiles closest to your skin are made of 100% cotton, which Ikea says is from sustainable sources.
We tested the firm version, but in our independent tests we rated it 5.2 (on a scale where one is firmest and 1- softest) and Ikea says this mattress has five comfort zones to help with support. It's also available in medium firm. At nearly 39kg, it's the heaviest of the mattresses in our top five.
At number five in our list is another super-cheap mattress from Ikea. The Vadsu00f6 is Ikea's cheapest pocket sprung standard double mattress. This basic mattress has a simple construction: a 13.5cm core made of Bonnell springs, covered in matting, plus a 1.5cm layer of foam closest to where you sleep.
This is market as a firm mattress. And our tests confirmed that it was fairly firm: we rated it as a 3.4 on a scale where one is the firmest and 10 the softest.
It's the lightest and thinnest out of the top five.
Ikea says this mattress is more ideal for those who sleep alone than with others.
