What Are The Best Mattress Brands?

Investing in a new mattress or bed is not something you should take lightly. Not only is it an expense but it is also an investment in a good night’s sleep. It's a good thing we've done the testing for you so you don't have to guess what is the best mattress brand.

In this blog, we’ll take you through what makes a mattress or bedding brand great and tell you what we think the list of the best mattress brands in South Africa are.

What Makes a Mattress Brand The Best?

When it comes to beds in particular, there are a few basic features that are must-haves in order to make them great brands.


A great bedding brand offers beds and mattresses that are well-made and, most importantly, comfortable. Comfort, after all, is what most customers seek for in a bed. A bed's comfort and pleasure are key factors for customers, followed closely by its support and cushioning.


When buying a bed, customers often make a buying decision that they hope will last them for many years to come. A reliable bed brand will offer beds with an excellent warrantee as well as a long-lasting guarantee for many years of service too.


Beds are a very personal choice for every customer, and every person has a different opinion when it comes to comfort and firmness. A great bedding brand offers a range of types of firmness and comfort levels of their beds to meet the needs and likes of every type of customer too.


Price is another area where mattress brands can move from good to great. A great brand will know who their target market is and design beds according to that market and according to what that market can afford. A variable price range is important too because it can accommodate a range of customers' budgets.
