Good Mattress

Recommended Posts

Will someone please direct me to where I can purchase a good mattress please. The ones available out here in the sticks don't last and I end miserable trying to get a bit more life from it. I was set to buy a fairly expensive mattress from Central but they called after the fact and raised the price 10,000 baht I guess a farang surcharge. That of course didn't fly. A car dealer tried that with me before. I have tried searching for where hotels might buy mattress but only find bulk sales.

I weigh 90ish kilo so I need something substantial. My wife wont let order online. Any help appreciated.

10,000 baht is still cheap for a decent mattress here - we just purchased two from a furniture shop near Kumtieng and they were 12,000 baht each but they were pillow top with decent inner springs. They also had there a memory foam one which was super soft but 18,000 baht though. If you come down from the north east corner of the moat going to Kum Tieng garden market (behind the Tesco Lotus) the furniture shop is on the right before the first set of traffic lights.

Ikea in Bangkok has a wide range of good quality. Because its widely used all over the world you can find reviews too.

 

I bought a big natural latex matrass from http://latexinnovations.com/

 

I am still happy with it i believe both companies deliver everywhere for a price.

I think the guy said raised the price 10.000.. i n my book that is adding an extra 10.000.. if only 10.000 in total its too cheap for a good mattress.

Unfortunately I sleep badly in general, so i make sure my bed and room are of the best quality i can buy. I really like my natural latex mattress . I even bought a second one for my guest room. (sometimes I have to sleep in the guest room when my parents are here).

 

I buy most of my quilts and pillows in Ikea, i am lucky that an IKEA just openend 4km from my home. The quality of the quilts and pillows and the wide selection make IKEA perfect for m. You can have cheap quilts or more expensive ones, the same goes for pillows. Because IKEA is an international company they sell the same products all over, this makes it easy to find a review about the products.

I think you can get things delivered from IKEA.. not sure how far they will go but people can arrange things themselves too. It all depends what value you place on a good nights rest.

 

I see that IKEA delivers also in other parts of Thailand.. but it does not give a price for Chang Mai.

The problem is there is no IKEA in Chang mai, so far only BKK but they do deliver all over the place. But for a mattress i can also recommend latex innovation.

I have the right solution for you.

 

I bought one 100% latex mattress from Homepro. Cost me around 2x,000 but it was worth it. latex mattress don't sag after using if for ten years.

 

Don't buy those with latex with only a few inches on top and the rest are foam, ask for latex from top to bottom , these are more expensive.

 

These mattresses are hard to find because the sales people keep pushing those cheap spring type mattress which don't last long.

IKEA usually sells spring type mattresses. Just go to Homepro.

I beg to differ the quality of IKEA is better as homepro, it depends of course on what ones you buy. Ikea has crap and good quality.. you get what you pay for.
