Buying a new bed nowadays can be quite a headache since there are so many options to choose from. Should I get a spring mattress or memory foam… or should I maybe go for latex? At Jensen we are firm believers that springs are the way to go.

Springs offers many advantages over other types of beds. For a start they have been in use for a very long time which means they’ve had the chance to be greatly improved over the years.

Jensen takes springs to the next level to provide you with the best sleep comfort. The fact that they’re pocket springs means that motion transfer is reduced, forget waking up every time your partner moves in bed! Pocket springs are named this way because each spring is enclosed in its own pocket, this allows it to move independently from the rest which also aids in distributing pressure evenly.

One of the most used arguments against spring mattresses is that they cause uneven zones of pressure on your body. What if I told you that Jensen stop this from happening by using the Jensen Original Zone System which allows prominent areas such as the shoulders and hips to sink deeper into the mattress. From a physiotherapist’s point of view this also offers many other benefits which will be discussed in the near future. Uneven pressure distribution is further reduced using a mattress topper.

Unlike latex or other materials, spring mattresses allow for great ventilation. Just think about the amount of empty space within a spring. All that space is taken up by air and when someone lies on the bed or moves about, the spring compresses and the volume is changed, this causes air to circulate in and out of the mattress. This circulation is great for keeping the bed dry which makes it more hygienic and also allows for much better temperature regulation. Both these things make spring mattresses especially ideal for warm and humid areas such as the coasts of Spain and Portugal.

Spring mattresses are also lighter which make them easier to flip over, reducing wear over time. It is no coincidence that Jensen offer a 25 year guarantee on their springs!

If you’re still not overly convinced about getting a spring mattress, I suggest you come to one of our stores and see for yourself what sleep comfort really is. We have stores in Spain in Palma, Marbella, Torrevieja and another in Lisbon Portugal.

¡Buenas noches!
