A handmade luxury mattress from Winstons Beds offers a vast range of options, from different natural fillings to multiple layers of handmade springs. These simple steps will help you find the right one for you.
Many factors make luxury mattresses stand out from the saturated mattress market, learn the key reasons below.
Many people wouldn’t blink an eyelid before spending their hard-earned money on things like high-end fashion, holidays and fine dining, but we hesitate at the cost of a high end mattress. Getting the best-quality sleep is critical to our well-being. A goodnight’s rest revitalises and equips us for the trials of the day ahead. We spend about 33% of our lives in bed. This time must be well spent because our sleep is linked to how we feel, our immune system, alertness, and overall health. So, the next time you are looking through a mattress website, and you see the cost, take a moment to consider whether it might not be worth investing in a high quality luxury mattress after all. You will notice the difference the minute you lie down between a mid-range and luxury product.
Paying more for an item guarantees higher quality, and it could not be more true for the mattress industry. In high end mattresses, only the highest-quality natural fibres are used, Years of research and development have been thoroughly conducted, and prominent brands only risk higher prices if they know that their products are worth it. Before we continue, a word of advice, be sure to do in-depth due diligence before committing to purchasing for a higher price. You do not want to spend more and get a mattress that is not right for you.
A more expensive mattress is a purchase worth making. We spend a lot of time sleeping, so why do that on a low-quality bed? Mid-range mattresses are ok, but if you can spend more, we would advise doing so – you will get better pain relief, breathability, greater durability, no toxic substances and most importantly, better sleep. There are numerous reasons why consumers look for the best luxury mattresses. They are much more comfortable, more suitable for back pain and posture issues, made of high-quality natural materials and are hypoallergenic.
A Feeling of Exclusivity
The correct spinal alignment is crucial. If you get it wrong, you may suffer from headaches, back pain, neck pain, shoulder or hip pain, and it might turn chronic in the most severe cases. A higher-priced luxury mattress can help you avoid such infirmities. High end mattresses are specifically designed to give the proper pressure relief and support where your body requires it. Your expensive bed must suit your sleeping position so that the spinal column is supported and held straight from the head to the tailbone. Pressure to the muscles and joints must be avoided as any part of your exposed body will suffer the consequences.

Have you ever had a fantastic sleep in a luxury hotel and questioned what mattresses do 5-star hotels use? Hotel mattresses are designed to give you the most incredible comfort, and that is why they usually go the extra mile to find the very best beds for you. To create the best comfort, some of the hotels have decided to design their own mattresses. The type you will find in 5-star hotels are traditional pocket sprung mattresses or pillow top mattresses in a medium firmness level. At Winstons Beds, we do the highest quality hotel type mattresses, but our specs are much more luxurious.
When customers ask this question, we always say the same thing, do you want the most luxurious mattress or the most expensive mattress, because there is a difference.
Luxury mattress brands can charge well over £100,000 for a mattress, but is it worth it? Our answer is no! Below we have compared some of the most expensive beds against our world exclusive Winstons No1, so you can be the judge on who has the most luxurious mattress in the world.
What are the key features to look out for when you are buying a luxury mattress?
For example, if a mattress is 28cm deep and has 32000 springs, you will most likely have a 1000 core spring unit that is 10cm in height layered with 4000 and 2000 micro coils around 1.3cm in height. This will take roughly 23cm of the mattresses total depth by just the springs, and you only have 5cm of space remaining for the fillings. Therefore, this cannot be classed as a luxury mattress because the ratio of springs to natural fillings is enormous.
At Winstons Beds, we do not go any higher than 3000 hand nested calico pocket springs, and this is not because we cannot, as we can go all the way up to 50000 springs. But, after years of research, we have realised that after 3000 springs, the quality of the mattress massively deteriorates as you can’t put enough fillings into the mattress, which drastically reduces the comfort and feel of the product and gives no extra proven support and only a higher price tag.
The Winstons No1 has the same quality cotton mattress covers but a higher spring count, GSM of natural fillings, hand-side stitched rows, depth, trial period and more or the same guarantee period as the Vispring and Savoir models. As a result, our mattress is superior in quality and luxury, yet we are significantly cheaper. So, how can a much more high-end mattress with a massively more luxurious spec be more affordable? It is because we believe in giving customers a fair price and not being hugely overpriced.
