Mattresses: Make an informed choice

Choosing the right mattress can mean the difference between years of heavenly, refreshing sleep or countless nights of tossing and turning. At Puji Furniture we offer three types of mattresses: pocket sprung mattresses, orthopaedic mattresses, and contour mattresses. Choose the one that suits you best.

The number indicates how many coils there are in the mattress. Coil sprung mattresses will only have about 300-400 coils, but pocket sprung mattresses require more coils. The higher the number, the firmer the mattress.


Three factors should be taken into consideration when deciding on the right mattress for you.

Firstly, (honestly!) consider your weight. Bigger boned people should choose firmer mattresses since they require more support. There are more coils per square metre in a firmer mattress. Our 1500 luxury pocket sprung mattress should be the one for you.

Secondly, do you feel more comfortable sleeping on something firm and hard or a mattress with a little more give? This comes down to personal preference, but bear in mind that a softer mattress with fewer coils could be less comfortable for you in the long run.

Finally, do you sleep on your side? If so, firmer mattresses are not for you. You need a little more give so that the position of your shoulder is comfortable. Choose the 800 pocket sprung mattress. If you sleep on your back or your front, choose a firmer mattress for even support.

So as to make a fully informed decision, it is also important to know what’s inside your chosen mattress. Open coil mattresses are the standard construction method for mattresses. These are mattresses with three-inch diameter steel coils interconnected in a framework inside the mattress. They are then enclosed in a metal rod framework, and enveloped in padding. Firmer, more durable versions of open coil mattresses are called orthopaedic mattresses.

Our pocket sprung mattresses have air vents and luxury padding for a cool, comfortable night’s sleep and the flag stitched handles on the sides of our mattresses, will help you to move the mattress more easily when moving house for example.

Our 1400 contour mattress is constructed in a similar way to the pocket sprung mattresses, but instead of normal padding, it makes use of Visco-Elastic memory foam. This impressive material was originally designed for NASA to relieve pressure on astronauts caused by G-forces when taking off.  A visco-elastic mattress moulds itself to your shape and reacts to your body’s temperature. In our mattress, we have two layers of this foam – a high-density layer with a softer comfort layer on top. You can experience the benefits of Visco-Elastic memory foam and pocket sprung construction in one mattress!
