What is the difference...
...between a continental, reversible mattress and adjustable bed?
Different types of beds have their unique design and functionality.
Let's take a look at what the differences are.
The first level of Jensen sleep quality is the reversible mattress. It is easily used in your existing bed frame and provides great sleep comfort even with just one bottom layer and a top mattress – thanks to the Jensen® Original Zone System that adapts to your body.
Nordic and Nordic Seamless
The Nordic bed is inspired by the light and elegant Scandinavian design tradition. The Nordic Seamless is a double-size bed with a single surface, which means that it has no hard edge in the middle. When it comes to sleep quality, the Jensen® Original Zone System provides support adapted to your body. The Nordic beds feature a dual-sprung Jensen pocket spring system with Jensen Pocket on Pocket technology, and a sturdy bed frame gives you the choice of either attaching legs directly to the bed or putting it in an existing bed frame. The low profile of the bed makes it ideal for pairing with an under-bed storage solution.
The most popular model today is by far the continental bed. It consists of up to three layers, making it higher than reversible mattress beds and provides great sleep comfort.
The bottom layer has support pocket springs in one or two layers, the middle layer is a pocket spring mattress with Jensen® Original Zone System that provides support adapted to your body. On top a mattress topper is placed to complete the comfort. Jensen continental beds have up to three individual spring systems, giving significantly better support compared to single mattress beds.
A type of bed that is on the rise in popularity is the adjustable. It provides a level of flexibility and sleep comfort that you just don’t get with conventional beds. An adjustable bed is an especially interesting choice if you suffer from body aches. The adjustable bed also opens up for using the bed in new ways, for example watching TV or reading with comfort that is simply on another level.
Choose the bed’s mattress firmness.
When it comes to measurements and what type of design you prefer for your new bed, you can do much of your research at home. But to truly find the right bed we recommend that you visit one of our retailers and try the beds out for yourself. It is the only way to experience the differences between each type of bed, and most importantly it is a must to order the right firmness. The mattress must comfortably support your entire body so you can relax and sleep well throughout the night. A key to achieving this is the mattress’ firmness. It’s particularly important that your shoulders and hips sink into the mattress and that your spine is straight. If your body relaxes, you will not wake up stiff and sore in the morning. The right firmness also reduces the risk of unnecessary strain, back problems and restless sleep.
All Jensen resellers are educated to help you find the right mattress tension. They will help you try out the bed in a correct way, lying down in the same position you do when you go to sleep at home. Even though it may seem awkward, try to lie still for at least five minutes in the bed to experience the bed’s qualities and make sure you are comfortable. Also, try several mattresses with different firmness so you can compare them to each other.
What size of bed do you need?
The size of your bedroom can sometimes be a limiting factor, but given that you have space you should aim for a bed measuring at least 90x200 centimeters if you sleep alone and 180x200 centimeters if you share your bed with a partner. If you have pets or children that like to snuggle up beside you, you should also take this into consideration when deciding the size of your bed. So what about length? If you are tall, then you should add extra length to provide the necessary sleep comfort. A rule of thumb is that the length of your bed should at least equal your own height plus 20 centimeters. At Jensen, 210 cm both in length and width is available in the standard assortment, we also give you the possibility of ordering your bed with custom measurements to achieve the best sleep comfort possible.
