Other types of double mattresses include the pocket-sprung and open-sprung mattress. Pocket-sprung mattresses have become the most common type of mattress and are generally of higher quality than open-sprung mattresses. They contain many small metal springs inside which are covered with a soft material so that the springs cannot be felt. Each spring responds to the individual part of the body giving support where it is needed. They are ideal for couples as any movement by an individual on one side of the bed does not affect the other individual on the opposite side of the bed. Open-sprung mattresses are not known to be as comfortable as the pocket-sprung mattress. Unlike the pocket-sprung mattress, they are made of coil springs wired together, which when laid on move together at once. Open-sprung mattresses are more suitable in places of infrequent use such as guest rooms.
As is the case with most products in this range, you get what you pay for. Memory foam and latex are the more expensive types of double mattress, followed by the pocket-sprung and then the open-sprung mattress. These mattresses can be found in almost all stores. If you are looking for a cheap double mattress that doesn’t substitute price for quality searching for a store with a mattress sale would be a good way to go.
