What's the difference between a high end mattress and Ikea mattress? I feel like my Ikea mattress is the most comfortable one ever. Is there a reason to upgrade?

Yes your back will thank you. For context had an IKEA king size mattress for five years. Upgraded to a higher end mattress three years ago well worth it.



This may be one of those things that you don’t know what you are missing out on until you upgrade to what’s out there.


I did research for about 1 month to find the perfect bed. Well worth the time and money. Treat yourself and live the extra plush life!

If you are single and dating you might want to upgrade


If you like firm mattresses, ikea are actually great.

Model reccos? Do they stay firm? I can’t find a mattress that stays firm enough for me after a year or so of use.


I LOVED my IKEA mattress ($250)and originally hated the $800 one I bought after. Now 10 months later the new one feels like heaven and I never want to get out of bed. The IKEA feels good at first but I had to replace it every 3ish years because the springs would break and I fight demons in my sleep apparently 🥲

You spend anywhere from 20-40% of our life asleep. this is one of those areas that make sense to splurge on the high end stuff

Agree. Couch and bed are splurge items


Had an ikea mattress in college and it served it’s purpose just fine. Got a real mattress when I got my first real job and it’s probably the best purchase I’ve made to date

Stearns & Foster Lux Estate Hybrid (ultra plush) with an electric base - can’t emphasize how much I love the electric base. I got 12 months same as cash when I purchased which helped out a lot. On year 4 of it and still feels like it did when new

I had a Floorvåg IKEA mattress for most of my 20s. It was cheap and had a funny name, which used to confuse and amuse whoever I was dating. Once I bought a big boy house I upgraded to the Purple mattress and it was a game changer. Better, deeper sleep, less back pain, etc. Only downside is my wife can't joke that she's bicurious because she was attracted to våg.
