It’s official. The mattress in a box craze is taking Australia by storm. This market has exploded over the last 5 years with over 30 companies now operating in Australia. It seems affordability and convenience are the main reasons why so many Australians are now opting to buy a new mattress online. Many are under $1000 and are delivered to your door in a compact box, which removes the time consuming ‘store to store’ shopping and pushy salespeople. Our expert review team has carried out assessments of over 30 mattress in a box products, so here is our our Top 5 for 2018. Let’s get started!
The Naptime 2.0 Mattress is a spring based version of their original and very popular foam based mattress. The top comfort layer comprises of a premium quality Tencel knit fabric, a special hybrid memory foam, and a latex support layer uses 100% natural latex which is naturally resistant to dust mites. The combination of these comfort layers and the 5 zone pocket spring system provide an exceptional combination of comfort and spinal support.
A queen size Naptime 2.0 currently sells for $850 (check our review to get $100 OFF ),which is excellent value considering that the average mattress in a box sells for around $1000. The Naptime 2.0 also comes with a solid 100-night trial period, which means you have over 3 months to sleep on it to see if you love it. If not you can get a full refund. Naptime’s 15 year warranty is one of the best in the mattress in a box market. To read our full review of the Naptime 2.0 Mattress which includes a video review, click here.
The Sleep & Co ‘Memory Foam’ Mattress has a dense but comfortable top layer which which provides excellent spinal support. This mattress is the firmer option of the other Sleep & Co Mattress – the Hybrid Mattress. The Sleep & Co ‘Memory Foam’ Mattress has very minimal partner disturbance, making it an attractive proposition for those who have a restless partner. The recommended retail price (queen) is currently listed at $999 but check our review for a 50% discount. We also think that the Sleep & Co ‘Memory Foam’ Mattress would be ideal for kids to support their growing spines and have recently awarded the single size as Australia’s ‘Best Kids Mattress’ for 2018. We are sure the kids will have fun in the unboxing process as well! For our full review of this fantastic mattress, click here.
The Noa Mattress is a strong contender in the mattress in a box market. It has a firm and supportive feel to it, along with a nice, subtle amount of bounce on the top layer. The top cover is made of a high quality Tencel fabric which covers a layer of latex, memory foam, transition foam, and a robust pocket spring system. Build quality is very good and it was perhaps the easiest mattress in a box to remove from its packaging. If you are after a good value, supportive mattress, the Noa Mattress should definitely be on your list.
Noa is currently offering a $300 discount on all mattress sizes (bringing a queen size down to $799) this now makes the Noa Mattress exceptional value. To see our full review on the Noa Mattress, click here.
The Sleeping Duck Pro Mattress has an outstanding level of build quality, possibly the best out of any mattress in a box product in Australia. The outer cover feels durable and expensive, the side handles are strongly attached, and the embroidery gives off a strong sense of class and quality.
The Sleeping Duck Pro Mattress is also very versatile with two firmness options available, a medium and a firm. If this doesn’t feel quite right, Sleeping Duck can send additional firmness options within the 100 night trial period. We were able to test out these additional pieces of foam (soft, medium, firm, extra firm) which gave different firmness levels, even in different parts of the mattress to offer more pressure relief for the hips and shoulders. So no matter what your preference is in terms of firmness, it appears this mattress has you well covered.
The Sleeping Duck Pro Mattress is one of the best mattress in a box products on the market in Australia. Our review team would certainly recommend giving it a try for the 100 nights. To see our full review which includes a video review, click here.
It gives us great pleasure to announce the winner of Australia’s ‘Best Mattress in Box’ for 2017-18, the Eva Mattress. In short, the Eva Mattress is a fantastic ‘all-rounder’ at an excellent price. It is comfortable, supportive, and build quality is outstanding for a mattress in a box. We were very comfortable awarding the Eva Mattress as the premier mattress in a box currently on the market.
Interestingly, the Eva Mattress is only one of several mattress in a box products (out of twenty-six) that contains a pocket spring system. On top of the 5 zone pocket springs sits a rather sophisticated comfort layer of Memory Foam, Latex, Micro Springs, and a High Density Foam. As we mentioned, this provides good spinal support, and also makes the Eva mattress very comfortable, with a spring-based feel similar to other more expensive mattresses.
The Eva Mattress stands up solidly in all five categories – comfort, spinal support, build quality, partner disturbance, and especially value for money. Its retail price listing is currently $850, and with a $100 coupon code, this comes down to $750 – which is well below the market average of $990. Not to mention its solid 120 night trial period and 12 year warranty. Congratulations to the Eva Mattress – a deserving winner in 2017-18!
