Ikea Latex Mattress Review
To help take some of the confusion out of buying a new mattress, Cheap Mattress Reviews was founded to provide you with consumer reviews of all the leading mattresses available today.
Ikea have been supplying products in the US since the 1980′s and are one of the leading brands in the world for home goods. Their range of mattresses and beds include inner-spring, standard foam, high-resilience foam and memory foam as well as latex foam. Here we concentrate on the Ikea latex mattress review sites out there and see what we can learn.
The Ikea latex mattresses are from their Sultan range. There are the Erfjord , the Elsfjord and the Engenes, which are all latex models, the Sultan Fjordgard which is a memory foam and latex blend, the Sultan Fossing which mixes foam with latex and the Sultan Holmsta which blends latex with inner-springs.
Let’s take them in price order, with the most expensive first. The Erfjord is the top of the range and costs $699 for a twin. It features seven inches of 85% natural latex (15 % synthetic latex), with all its pressure-relieving capacity and seven comfort zones aimed at tailoring the support levels to your body. The open-cell structure of the latex material allows good air circulation and moisture to evaporate naturally. The finishes are 100% eco-cotton, which keeps things natural and aids the breathe-able nature of the bed. The mattress is reversible which helps maintain and keep it free from wear and tear.
The Sultan Engenes is $549 for a twin and features a 7 1/8″ thick blend of natural and synthetic latex (20 % natural/ 80 % synthetic) and 5 comfort zones for pressure relief of comfort and hips. The open cell latex material allows for great air circulation. There is a removable cover that can be machine washed and the mattress is reversible, so maintenance is easy and wear and tear can be minimized.
The Sultan Fjordgard, which is $509 for a twin, blends a 2″ thick layer of latex (20 % natural/ 80 % synthetic) with high-resilience foam to provide good comfort layers. The mattress is kept breathe-able, moisture-free and temperature controlled by the lamb’s wool and lyocell in the ticking. It is easy to maintain and keep clean by the removable cover provided, which can be machine-washed.
The Sultan Fossing, which is $409 for a twin, mixes a 1″ thick layer of latex (20 % natural/ 80 % synthetic) with high-resilience foam for its comfort layers. It also use the lamb’s wool and lyocell filling and the removable cover providing the same benefits as mentioned above.
The Sultan Holmsta is $399 for a twin and blends synthetic latex cushioning and foam for comfort with 260 Active-Response Coils (in a twin) that respond to you body and relieve pressure, while maintaining spinal alignment and providing support and also controlling motion transfer. A blend of synthetic and natural fibers makes up the ticking, fabric encasements and protective fabrics.
The Sultan Elsfjord weighs in at $349 for a twin and uses 5 .5″ of synthetic latex, providing comfort, temperature regulation and breathe-ability. It has the removable cover and is reversible.
In the Ikea latex mattress reviews we read there was a better response than for the Ikea spring mattresses. Owner satisfaction was very high especially with value for money, comfort, motion isolation and being odorless and noiseless. The main downsides mentioned were that they are heavy (like all latex mattresses), excessive firmness and occasional sagging.
