Why choose a small single mattress?
A small single mattress offers a space-saving solution for those narrower rooms in the home. Whether you have a box room or a room ideal for a guest to sleep in, a small mattress gives you the option to make use of those tight rooms without it being completely taken over by a bed.
The space you gain over a single bed adds versatility to your spare room. The saved space means you can fit furniture or use the room as an office. You can even combine your small single mattress with a storage bed to keep the things you don’t use daily from the rest of the home.
A small single is also a cosier option for those who prefer smaller beds. The snug feeling of a small single mattress may help you fall asleep, which may be more advantageous for children transitioning from a toddler bed to a bigger bed.
Small single mattress types:
There are several types of 2ft 6in mattresses to choose from, each with their very own benefits:
Small single memory foam
Made from viscoelastic, memory foam mattresses soften when in contact with body heat. This ensures you get the right individual form of muscle and spinal support throughout the night. A memory foam 2ft 6in mattress is especially great for those who move around a lot in their sleep - such as little ones. As they toss and turn, the responsive mattress will react and return to its original shape.
Small single pocket spring
Pocket spring mattresses are one of the most popular options for kids' rooms. They're made up of hundreds of springs within fabric pockets. Each spring is connected to the mattress unit independently. This innovation means the mattress can adjust to your body shape more accurately, providing plenty of support for a comfortable night's sleep.
Small single traditional spring
Traditional spring small single mattresses are most popular for guest bedrooms. They provide good levels of comfort and support throughout the night. At reasonable prices, they're great space savers too. As they offer good value for money and convenience, this makes them real all-rounders and particularly useful for guest bedrooms.
Which small single mattress is best for me?
Choosing the best 2ft 6in mattress for you will depend mostly on your individual sleeping position and your preferred comfort grade. Our range of small single mattresses are all available in medium and firm comfort grades.
A medium comfort grade is most suitable for side sleepers. These combine soft cushioning with sturdy support. This allows your body to sink into your mattress whilst keeping your spine aligned.
For those of you who sleep on your front or back you may wish to consider a firm mattress. This is because sleeping in these positions requires additional support for your spine and joints. Firmer mattresses help to alleviate pressure on these while you sleep, allowing you to wake up with fewer aches and pains.
