How to choose the best mattress for you
Searching the internet for the best bed in South Africa is usually a mess of confusing information.We’ve put together a guide to simplify this a for you.
Value for money
Everyone’s financial situation is unique, but a better perception of the value of a bed in one’s life could help one decide effectively. Considering the importance of sleep and how it impacts the quality of our lifestyles, investing in a good mattress goes without saying.
Generally, bed shops add significant mark-up, due to overheads. Buying directly from Sloom avoids those extras to give you better value for your money.
Different sleeping styles require different types of firmness. Side sleepers typically prefer a softer sleeping surface and a firm mattress generally support a stomach or back sleeper better.
It is impractical to determine whether the comfort works for you in just a few minutes in a store. Therefore, you can adjust the firmness of the Sloom Mattress at any time. It can even be different for you and your partner.

The weight limit is usually an excellent indicator of the quality of the mattress. Higher quality materials can hold more weight. The minimum to consider is a 100kg per person weight limit.
The Sloom Mattress can support up to 150kg which is much more than the average mattress.
Warranty and Guarantee
Another good indication of the quality of the bed is the service warranty the manufacturer is prepared to give. Entry-level mattresses start with a 5-year service warranty, if any, and go up from there. Top of the range beds typically come with a 20-to-25-year service warranty.

Type of Foam Mattress
Every bed consists of foam, even an innerspring mattress. The higher the density, the better the quality of foam. These specifications are not always available to the consumer, making it difficult to compare beds. So, the highest density foam types usually found in mattresses are memory, latex and high resilience foam.
The Sloom mattress contains 4 different types of these luxury high-density foams.
If your partner’s midnight movements disturb your sleep, then a bed with minimal motion transfer should be considered. These are typically mattresses with pocket springs and/or foam with a high absorption rate like memory foam.
Sloom has taken disturbance-free features further with split comfort layers, meaning no motion is transferred to your partner.
