Are you looking for a cheap mattress that isn’t too nasty? A new mattress or bed can can cost thousands of dollars and is usually an expense that we haven’t budgeted for.
There are many reasons why people look for a cheap mattresses. The obvious reason is affordability, or perhaps the cheap mattress is just a temporary option. Many bed shoppers also look for inexpensive options for the guest room, considering that it won’t be slept in too often.
So what exactly defines ‘cheap’ when it comes to mattresses. Well considering that the average recommended retail price of a ‘retail store’ mattress is around $3000 (queen size) and the average cost for an online ‘mattress in a box’ is around $1000 (queen size), we consider ‘cheap’ to be around the $500 mark.
Based on Bedbuyer’s experience and market knowledge, we strongly recommend bed shoppers to consider spending at least $1000 (queen size) on a new mattress. There are some good options around the $700 mark too, but quality and comfort drop off significantly below about $500.
So what options are available if you don’t have much to spend? Let’s have a look at Australia’s top picks in the cheap mattress category in 2021!
