I’m in need of a new mattress for a single bed. Does this seem reasonable?

This thing.

For a mattress, that’s pretty darned cheap.  The question really should be is it comfortable?

You can’t argue with an “agreeable sleeping climate”...

For what it’s worth I always think that, with mattresses, you need to go and lay on one and wriggle about a bit. There’s no other way of knowing whether it will suit you or not.

IKEA stores usually have displays set up so one can sprawl out on said mattresses.

Bear in mind, IKEA tends to be somewhat inexpensively produced. You’ll save a bunch, but it won’t last more than a few years.

The only worry I have is ‘springs’.  I don’t like them because they tend to work through.  Otherwise I agree with the rest, go to IKEA, sit on it, lay on it, bounce etc. and see how it feels to you.

I could relay that to other people but I’m worried about the potential for misunderstanding. smile

I’m planning to go to IKEA this Friday night (or on the weekend). I’ll look at the thang and if it seems comfy enough I’ll buy it.

I think there is danger of my buying a few other little odds and ends while I’m there.

If you’ve got one of the bigger ones, make sure to grab a bite to eat while you’re there.. the cafeteria is very tasty. They’ve hit upon the concept of ‘limited selection but excellent quality’, and so there’s only a few things on the menu any given day, but they’re all tasty and cheap.

Yes, the cafeteria is nice there. The IKEA I go to is part of a larger shopping centre so there are other food places there as well. I’ll probably just go to the IKEA one as that’s most handy.

I’ll be buying a mattress for a single bed and I’m planning on having it delivered for me. I’ve only got a small car.

Robin, I too adore their food. 

Peter, we always end up with stuff we hadn’t even thought of when we go HA!  I love the kid’s section big time.  Just make sure the springs on the mattress are well insulated!

It’s edible at a beautifully affordable price.
