Haugesund Mattress Review

Haugesund Mattress Review

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.



Zinus 12 Inch Performance Plus Extra Firm Spring Mattress

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.

Haugesund Mattress Review

My experience of this product showed me that the product includes a great design and quality materials. But the sleeping surface just isn’t built to handle the average sleeper and based on my own experience, is ideal for smaller, lighter individuals. 


  • Affordable
  • Impressive coil count
  • Minimal upkeep
  • Ideal for lighter sleepers
  • Produced from a well-known company


  • Only reaches Queen size
  • Not ideal for heavier sleepers

Who Should Buy this Product?

This product is best for lighter sleepers or children. During my examination of the product I struggled with finding a comfortable position and found the Queen size limitation to be frustrating. The quality of the product is good and the price is fair but it’s not a design for the majority of the public. 

Key Features

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:

Serta Perfect Sleeper Elite Super Pillow Innerspring 

This combination model is designed to solve five common sleep problems. It reduces tossing and turning, provides back support and proper spine alignment, regulates sleep temperature, absorbs movement, and prevents sagging. The coils are individually wrapped and the foam layer includes cooling gel.

Serta Perfect Sleeper Elite Super Pillow Top 600 Innerspring Mattress

Zinus 12 Inch Performance Plus ExtraFirm Spring 

If you’re after extra firm support, this could be the design for you. It includes three layers, two of which are foam and one made up of individually wrapped coils. These coils ensure virtually no motion transfer and the foam is certified for durability, performance, and content. The product includes a 10-year warranty to protect your investment.

Olee Sleep 10 Inch Cool I-Gel Foam Top Innerspring 

Here’s another foam and spring combination. It’s much softer than the previous Zinus option but still limits motion transfer. There are no additional cooling features though, like gel infused foam.

Olee Sleep 10 Inch Cool I-Gel Foam Top Innerspring Mattress

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.
