Whether it’s your little one’s first real bed, giving your child a brand new mattress, or even furnishing a spare room, we all deserve a great night’s sleep, and a new single mattress from Dunelm delivers just that!
Explore our fantastic range of single mattresses available in a wide selection of styles and thicknesses from major brands including Silentnight, Dorma, Fogarty, Sareer, Bedmaster and more. Single memory foam mattresses are some of our biggest sellers and it’s easy to see why. A memory foam mattress offers exceptional comfort and support throughout the night, so much so that most orthopedic single mattresses are made from memory foam… just don’t blame us if it’s so comfortable that you struggle to get the kids up before school!
If memory foam isn’t for you, then a pocket sprung single mattress might be the perfect choice. Where memory foam is supportive and lets you sink into it, a pocket sprung single mattress will be slightly springier and will have a bit more bounce. Pocket sprung mattresses also tend to be slightly better with heat dissipation than memory foam versions.
If you’d prefer something in between, then we also stock standard sized single mattresses with hybrid designs that incorporate the best of both worlds.
What thickness single mattress should I choose?
Whether it’s for yourself, or your buying a kids single mattress, the thickness is an important consideration. A thicker mattress generally offers more comfort and support, but is heavier and will often cost more. Most of the single mattresses we stock here at Dunelm fall between 18cm and 25cm thick, although if you want the ultimate in luxury, we stock single mattresses of up to 30cm thick.
What size is a single mattress?
A standard size single bed mattress is 190cm (6ft 3) x 90cm (3ft). Because of their size, they’re great as a kids mattress as they can handle all the growing spurts associated with little ones from toddlers all the way up to teenagers.
