Ikea is a popular furniture company based in Sweden that offers a variety of products for consumers. While they’re known for kitchen gadgets and décor, they also have a wide selection of mattresses.
One of them is the Haugesund and Sleep Ask wanted to write a report based on what we saw and experienced. The product includes a layer of foam and individually wrapped pocket springs that independently move to support and contour to individual body shapes. My assessment of the product will cover the construction of the design and help you decide if it’s a product you should consider.
This product measures in at about 10” thick. It includes a foam layer on top for comfort and pocket coils throughout the bottom layer for unique support. In the Queen sized, there’s an impressive 594 coils, which blew me away during my assessment of the product. They all independently move so just because you change positions, the entire bed won’t move. This also helps provide support based on your sleeping position and alleviates pressure points.
The cover is quilted throughout and designed to be blotted clean and vacuumed when needed. I liked the simplicity of the cover.
First Impression & Overnight Test (Firmness, Feel, & Support)
The first thing I noticed about the design was how plush and quilted the cover was. It added extra comfort that I could feel through my protector and sheets. As far as firmness, I would say it’s a medium firmness. It’s great for side sleepers and most stomach sleepers. Based on my research back sleepers might find it a little too soft though.
After the first few nights of sleeping on this product, I began to doubt the durability of the mattress. I had a hard time seeing how it would last for either heavier sleepers or couples. While it was comfortable and supported me when first getting in bed, I felt like the bed was sagging by the time I woke up in the morning. This might not be the case for lighter sleepers so you might want to consider a an assessment done by a person weighing less to see if it’s an option for you.
Sinkage, Motion Transfer, & Temperature
Because the top of the Haugesund is foam, I did experience some sinkage during my Haugesund mattress review. But the coil base helps prevent you from sinking down too far. The edge support on the Haugesund is impressive, something I definitely noticed during my Haugesund mattress review.
Because of the impressive number of coils, there is virtually no motion transfer with the Haugesund. This was one of my favorite features during my Haugesund mattress review.
There are no cooling features included with the Haugesund. Depending on the temperature inside my home, I did find myself waking up hot a few times during my Haugesund mattress review.
Firmness and support
The firmness of the Haugesund is medium. I never felt like it was too hard but there were times when I felt it was too soft. I think this mostly had to do with my weight. My Haugesund mattress review taught me that this isn’t a mattress built for larger adults.
There are several features I made note of during my assessment period. The individually wrapped pocket springs in the bottom layer are designed to move independently. This gives the products a more personal feel and provides you with support and comfort all night. Because the coils move independently, you’re less likely to disturb your partner when moving, something my wife and I appreciated. There is stretch fabric on top of the sleeping surface that moves with you to improve comfort levels. Even though it’s a coil design, it’s designed to work on only one side so you don’t need to worry about flipping it. It includes an impressive 25-year warranty and is affordable for a combination model of its stature.
How Does It Compare?
Let’s take a look at some of the competition:
There are several quality foam and coil spring combinations on the market. It just comes down to preference. Based on my experiences of this Ikea product, the design is best suited for very light sleepers or children. I weigh almost 200 pounds and the sleeping surface just didn’t seem like it was meant for me. Keep your weight in mind before deciding to make this product your ideal choice.
If you’re looking for a combination design with both foam and coil springs, I wouldn’t rule out the Haugesund. It might not be the best option for your main bed. I would highly recommend it for a child’s bed or a guest room that’s used only on occasion. assessment overall was positive, but I’m just not confident in the product's ability to keep up with the average sleeper over an extended period of time.
