(Searching for the best budget mattress is much easier when someone else has done the research for you!)

If you’re looking for a temporary fix for your bed or perhaps a new mattress for the guest bedroom, read on and avoid overspending where you really don’t need to…

Here is a round up of the best budget mattresses, all under £200! 

1. Inofia 3D 7 Zone Support Pocket Sprung Mattress

This mattress literally offers everything. What a great find. Inofia 3D 7 Zone Support Pocket Sprung Mattress

It is both pocket sprung and has a foam layer. The pocket springs give stability and support, and the foam layer give extra comfort – which helps to relive pressure points and makes the mattress feel much higher quality than you would imagine, based on the price.

Your bone and joints are able to sink into the memory foam layer so you don’t feel the pain that you would on a medium firm mattress. 

The ‘7 zones’ are specifically targeting to areas of the body that are likely to apply more pressure than others. (See what the 7 zones are exactly below in the image.)

Sleeping on a mattress such as this one will help to distribute your weight whilst aligning your spine. (Check out the Inofia website here if you like.)

Best For:

  • Anyone who has trouble being comfortable in bed due to aches and pains.
  • Suitable for a kids, teenagers, adults, or as a couples bed. It is perfect for a spare room, and would last for a very long time with only the use of being a spare bed. However, you can also rely on using this mattress as your main bedroom mattress that you sleep on every night too. (There is even a 10 year guarantee on the materials.) It is only logical that it would not last as long if it was used as your main everyday mattress.

Summary

This is a fantastic mattress and offers the most value for money out of all the mattresses in this post. It comes in at well under £200 for the standard double 4ft6 size.

A fantastic purchase for anyone looking for the best budget mattress for use in the main bedroom or spare room or for an older child (teenager).

2. Silentnight Lyndhurst Miracoil Spring Mattress

£200 for the double sized version of this mattress you cant go wrong. This mattress feels extremely comfortable, given the low price. It’s also great to be able to purchase a well known brand name, Silentnight, whilst staying in the budget category. Silentnight Lyndhurst Miracoil Spring Mattress

It is a medium support mattress, so a good all rounder for most people and features Silentnight’s exclusive Miracoil system, which is also used in some of their more expensive mattresses.

What is miracoil? 

Miracoil offer more support than standard springs as the weight is distributed more evenly. 

Miracoil technology is mainly geared towards couples who share a bed as it reduces the amount of ‘roll together’ that happens when the mattress gets squished between your and you end up rolling into each other in the centre of the bed.

The more advanced springs in this mattress are also great news if you suffer from an aching back occasionally. As they provide more support.

There are 325 Miracoil springs in this Silentnight mattress and it is a ‘non turn’ mattress. Its unique design means you don’t have to flip it over every couple of months. 

Best For:

  • People who struggle with stiffness and aches and pains when lying down.
  • People who would struggle, or be unable to flip a standard spring mattress due the the weight. (The elderly or perhaps someone with a disability would benefit from this mattress.)
  • People who get hot in the night, this Silentnight mattress has ecoComfort technology which prevents overheating and aids with airflow.

Summary

This silentnight mattress is excellent value for the money, we love the unique Miracoil springs which help prevent the ‘roll together’ that happens on a basic mattress when there are two people in the bed.

This budget mattress is available on Amazon.co.uk now.

3. Dalton Traditional Spring Mattress

The Dalton spring mattress is a fantastic budget buy. It has hourglass shapes springs inside which help to give an even level of support across the mattress.Dalton Traditional Spring Mattress

The comfort grade is medium, so it suits a wide range of people who neither pressure a soft mattress or a hard mattress.

Being double sided, you can flip and turn this mattress frequently to maintain even wear and tear of the springs. 

Best For:

  • Any sleeper, side front or back.
  • Someone looking for a good quality value purchase.
  • A spare bedroom / guest room. 
  • Kids room. 

Summary

An overall great bargain buy. Will do the job, probably wont last for many years if it is to be used as your main bed for sleeping in every night, but for less than £200 it is strong, well made and comfortable. – You don’t get the feeling of springs poking through. 

The Dalton double mattress is available on the Dreams website and in Dreams stores across the UK.

4. Silentnight 3-Zone Memory Foam Rolled Mattress

This is a mattress we were very excited to find out more about.

Silentnight 3 Zone Memory Foam Rolled Mattress, Made in the UK A memory foam rolled mattress like the Simba and Casper mattresses, for under £200?!

This definitely needs to be discussed further.

This Silentnight mattress is made with the ‘Miratex’ high density foam – a support system to help relieve pressure points and help with spinal alignment.

There are 3 zones (layers) in this mattress, including the Miratex foam, designed to help distribute your weight evenly. The other two layers sit on top of the main foam body layer and add more comfort and pressure relief qualities to the mattress.

Uniquely this mattress comes rolled, just like the new trend of Simba and Casper mattresses, however this one costs about a quarter of the price! (Its also super comfortable and feels like it should cost more than it does.)

Best For:

  • Some one who lives in an apartment or high block of flats – easier to get up all the stairs! (When the mattress is new – as it comes rolled in a box. Not so easy to move once out of said box!)
  • If you have a bad back or tend to feel pain when lying flat on a hard surface like the floor.
  • If you suffer from allergies, the good news is this mattress is hypo-allergenic. This memory foam mattress features something called ‘Purotex’ – a 100% natural probiotic that combats dust mite allergens. 
  • Spare rooms or if you want to venture into your first memory foam mattress without splurging on a Tempur just yet!
  • Children – maybe you already have a memory foam mattress and your children want a mattress just like yours. The Silentnight 3 zone is an excellent first memory foam mattress.

The 3-zoned support system alleviates pressure across your shoulders, hips & lower back

Summary 

This is an excellent purchase if you are considering switching from a spring mattress to a memory foam mattress. 

The price tag wont break the bank and the quality is high enough to get a fair amount of wear and use out of.

No, it wont last forever and the longevity and overall quality is not quite as advanced as the the Simba, casper and Tempur memory foam qualities, but for the price, you are getting a lot of value for money. 

This budget friendly Silent Night double mattress is available on Amazon.

5. Orthopaedic Open Coil Spring Mattress

This mattress offers a good firm support from the open child springs, with the added comfort from  a layer of reflex foam. Orthopaedic Open Coil Spring Mattress

This is on both sides so the mattress can be flipped and there are convenient handles to help with this.

We like the air vents for breath-ability, which helps the mattress to maintain a steady temperature, ad for you to not overheat.

Best For:

  • People who prefer a firm nights sleep.
  • If you have back pain, sleeping on a firm surface can help. (This doesn’t work for everyone but is the general consensus.
  • A good all rounder, a single version of this mattress is good for a childs first bed or a teenager and will last for many years. 

Orthopaedic Open Coil Spring, Happy Beds Super Ortho Medium Firm Tension Mattress with Reflex Foam - 4ft6

Summary

This is a robust feeling mattress with many of the additional qualities that you get with mattresses of £500+.

It is built to last and is extremely comfortable and supportive, if you like a medium firm mattress.

This ‘Happy Beds’ mattress is a good allrounder that will withstand being slept on every night. (Whereas some mattresses under £200 tend to not be as robust or long lasting.)
