Drifting off to sleep quickly and comfortably starts with the perfect mattress: but with such much to consider, it can feel overwhelming. We’ve created a straightforward guide, so you can be one step closer to your most blissful night’s sleep yet.


Sleep is an essential part of our daily lives and getting too little can impact our health. From your weight, productivity to your immune system; enough shut-eye isn’t just about feeling energised.

Although the thought of not getting enough sleep might keep you up at night – it doesn’t have to. With the right mattress that suits all of your needs, you can transform your sleep for boundless nights of comfort. But where do you start?

Understanding your sleeping needs

When it comes to choosing your mattress, it’s important to understand your sleeping needs and habits and how your mattress can work to complement them.

Whether it be additional back support or anti-allergy requirements, identifying your sleeping needs is an essential place to start. You can then work these desires into the functionality of your mattress by choosing specific material or support.

If you have sensitive allergies, a soft and cleverly designed mattress like the Relyon Fishpools 1400 is the perfect choice for you. It features a resilient anti-allergy layer that works to prevent dust mite and other allergens from living in the mattress.

Choose your mattress size

Deciding on the size of your mattress, you should first consider your room size and how you want your bed to fit in the room.

If you want to maximise the space in your bedroom, then you should opt for a single mattress or a small double. At Fishpools, we have a variety of high-quality mattresses that are available in a smaller size, so you can easily find the right one for your home.

Or, if you’re looking for your bed to be the focal point to your bedroom, then why not choose a King or a Super King mattress?

A larger sized mattress works wonderfully if you like space to stretch and move around. A roomy mattress is also a great choice if you sleep with a partner.
