The Inofia Mattress is scientifically zoned for better support, but how does it match up to the competition?
Inofia Mattresses are a lesser-known mattress brand, operating internationally from locations that include both the USA and the UK. Just because they don’t have multi-national advertising campaigns, doesn’t mean that they don’t produce stellar mattresses of superior quality.
We went behind the scenes with the Inofia mattress brand to find out what their special features are. Are they suited to a hot sleeper? Do they come as bed-in-a-box mattresses? Let’s find out!
Who are Inofia Mattresses?
Inofia pride themselves on producing high quality mattresses for an affordable rate. They are situated in West Yorkshire, in the UK, where they were incorporated back in February of 2021, however, that’s not their total history.
Inofia have offices in both the US, in Santa Fe, and in China, in Hong Kong. They are a mattress maker who also provide other bedroom furniture and even the occasional home electrical appliance. Their main office is in Shenzhen, where they are able to negotiate better prices for materials with Chinese suppliers.
Inofia haven’t earned themselves the best reputation so far. Their swift expansion saw them go from China to the USA almost overnight. They didn’t seem to spend any time on building customer trust in the process, either. This led to a whole multi-national firm springing up on our doorstep overnight to an audience of baffled customers. They are still playing catch up for it, even as we speak.
You can learn more about the Inofia brand on their about us page. Be warned, though, that there isn’t much to go on.
How Much do you pay for an Inofia Mattress?
Inofia are known for their range of budget beds. Since they are able to secure cheaper materials from their Chinese suppliers, they can assemble the mattresses at cost, then pass a huge saving onto the consumer. The catch to all of this is that your mattress has many airmiles behind it, meaning it has a bigger carbon footprint than most.
Nevertheless, they make a cheap bed. You can get a memory foam mattress from Inofia for under $200 – a great rate by anyone’s standards. They also sell hybrid mattresses for between $100 and $600, so you can get an affordably luxury mattress without a massive price tag.
By comparison to other cheap mattress sellers, we say Inofia are at the top of their category. They are cheap because they can get the materials cheaper, not because they cut corners. Let’s look at the mattresses to enlighten ourselves as to what we should expect.
What else does Inofia Sell?
Inofia don’t just draw the line at mattresses, either. They also make mattress toppers and pillows with their own innovative technologies. Their pillow is especially well-known to be a high-quality pillow that helps the user stay cool at night.
What are Inofia Mattresses Like?
Inofia only sell full memory foam and hybrid mattresses. They don’t have sprung mattresses or latex ones. In other words, they are sticking to the modern mattress types. This limits your choice but also gives you the best of both worlds.
Inofia incorporate a lot of sleep technology into their mattresses. You can expect to find some of the following things contained in an Inofia bed:
- High Density Foam Open Cell Technology – which makes for an airier memory foam that springs back into shape faster.
- Pocketed Coils – where each spring in a hybrid bed is individually wrapped in high-quality memory foam.
- Air-channel controlled foam layers – to get more air under you while you sleep.
- Ecogreen memory foam mattress toppers – which are highly breathable covers with extra softness.
- Softive memory foam layers that provide maximum relief.
- Re-invented barrel shaped springs that give better bounce.
- Airoyal fabric – designed to put more air into the mattress to cushion you as you sleep.
This is only a small sample of the total number of sleep technologies that Inofia use. Next, let’s turn our attention to what consumers consider to be the best Inofia mattresses.
What are the Best Inofia Mattresses?
Some of the best Inofia mattresses are detailed below, as voted for by the consumer.
Best Supportive Mattress by Inofia: The 9 Zoned Hybrid Support Mattress
This mattress ticks every box in terms of comfort and softness. It has multiple foam layers keeping you separate from those hybrid springs, comes with zoned support, and gives you pressure relief in all the right places. The product description calls it ‘hyper-soft’ which is a new term for us.
This mattress has an embroidered, quilted cover, which adds airflow beneath you as you sleep (but also looks pretty). This mattress has next-level shock absorption. The motion reduction is brilliant, considering that it is a hybrid.
This mattress comes with 100 nights of sleep trial with no obligation and no risk, so you can try it out across more than one season. It uses ElegantCollection memory foam to support you and has 6 separate layers. There’s the strong base and sides, the individually pocketed springs, then the other 5 layers are all memory foam. If an earthquake happens in the middle of the night when you are sleeping on this, you won’t feel it.
Pros of the 9-Zoned Hybrid Support Mattress:
- Great for those who need serious support and pressure relief.
- It has the comfort of 5 foam layers but the benefit of springs.
- The motion reduction on this bed is fantastic.
Cons of the 9-Zoned Hybrid Support Mattress:
- If you don’t like the feel of memory foam, this might not be for you.
- There isn’t any cooling technology so it may sleep hot.
Best Firm Mattress by Inofia: The Elegant Collection Memory Foam Sprung Mattress
This hybrid only sits at a 7 on the scale of mattress firmness ratings. 7 is more than enough for those that like a firm mattress, without being so firm that you feel like you are sleeping on the floor.
This mattress features individually pocketed coils and layers of memory foam capable of supporting all the pressure points of your body. They say this mattress is like sleeping on air. It comes with the premium tuft handcrafted stamp of only the best Inofia mattresses. It also comes with the 100-night sleep trial they offer on some of their products.
The pocket coil technology is the real winner in this mattress. They give a nice bit of bounce back that really complements the firmness rating. If your kids could choose your double bed to bounce on, this might be the winner. The coils are zoned for extra relief and concentrated in areas where you need them most.
This mattress has the full six layers, one of which is the supportive dense base foam. That top layer is a lovely, quilted comfort layer that separates any memory foam feelings from touching your skin. We think that makes it nearly perfect, particularly when you consider the affordable price.
The Pros of the Elegant Collection Sprung mattress:
- That exquisite knit nature cover on the top layer is soft, cool, and anti-microbial.
- This mattress successfully blends the usefulness of springs with the full comfort of memory foam.
- It’s not too firm, while still being on the high end of the scale.
The cons of the Elegant Collection Sprung Mattress:
- If you don’t like a sprung mattress, the springs will annoy you.
- The edge support in this bed isn’t fantastic.
Best Budget Mattress by Inofia: The Inofia 22cm Double Gel Memory Foam Mattress
Made with the side sleeper in mind, this double gel filled memory foam mattress both supports you as you sleep and helps dispel body heat. A sleep in this bed should be as cool as can be, given that there is double the amount of cooling gel foam than there usually is in an Inofia mattress.
This isn’t the cheapest mattress that they do, but it regularly comes in at less than $500, which qualifies it as a budget mattress. It’s cool, its comfortable, and the memory foam helps distribute weight so that you don’t feel your partner tossing and turning in the night. That weight distribution also ensures you are getting the maximum in relief on your pressure points.
This mattress sports an elastic Breathable Top Cover, which moves with the bed but keeps everything in the right place. It uses the Elegant Collection memory foam and combines it with the pocketed coils to give you a little bounce. All in all, it’s a soft and spongy medium-firm mattress that is perfect for giving you support in all the right places. This mattress is ideal for the side sleeper that gets shoulder and hip pain. It should be soft enough, yet supple enough, to keep you happy.
The Pros of the Double Gel Memory Foam Mattress
- It’s nice and cool
- It is soft enough to support a side sleeper without being hard enough to hurt the shoulders.
- It has a washable cover.
The Cons of the Double Gel Memory Foam Mattress:
- Bad news if you don’t like memory foam because it has twice as much as normal.
- It’s a very no-frills mattress with only minimal sleep technology.
Most Versatile Mattress by Inofia: The Inofia Memory Foam Mattress Soft and Firm 2-in-1
The memory foam mattress shouldn’t be flipped. It’s a little-known fact that the bottom layer is the support base layer, which holds the whole thing together. You wouldn’t want to lie on this layer.
However, Inofia have gone and turned that idea to their advantage with the Soft and Firm mattress. This incredibly clever mattress makes use of the firm base, then cushions it so that you could sleep on it. On the other side, they have maintained as medium soft level of comfort foam. This layer molds to your shape while the bast layer supports.
This mattress can be flipped for those that like a firmer feel, making it one of the most versatile mattresses in the Inofia range. It comes with their massager cover that is suitable for those with allergies to use. It contains five layers in there, all in varying levels of density of memory foam. Two of those transition layers are gridded to allow for better airflow than your average memory foam mattress.
Pros of the Soft and Firm 2-in-1:
- The Soft and Firm is versatile and can be flipped over for guests.
- Has a removable, washable cover.
- Plenty of airflow under you to keep you cool.
Cons of the Soft and Firm 2-in-1:
- There are only medium or firm sides, there’s no super soft option.
- This is a full foam bed, which the occasional person dislikes.
Best Overall Mattress by Inofia: The Memory Foam Pocket Sprung Hybrid
The mattress we liked best of all is the Memory Foam Pocket Sprung Mattress. This simple-yet-effective design features pocketed coils where the coils are conical shaped. This gives them more power while simultaneously causing less friction for the user. You shouldn’t be picking up any static shocks off these beds…
The memory foam mattress has pressure point relief and comes with a 101-night sleep trial so you can rest easy if you don’t like it. There are a total of 8 layers in this mattress, good enough for royalty. There are two durable base layers, one of which houses the springs. Above this, there are 5 layers of comfortable memory foam, each of differing density. On top, they added a 3D knitted top cover which adds extra breathability to the mattress.
This mattress is a firm favorite with consumers because it is ideal for every type of sleeper. It’s responsive, molds to your shape, and has just enough bounce to make going to bed fun.
Pros of the Memory Foam Pocket Sprung Hybrid:
- This mattress has more layers than any of those mentioned so far.
- The 101-night sleep trial is one night better than they offer normally.
- The individually pocketed coils give you the best of both worlds sprung and foam.
Cons of the Memory Foam Pocket Sprung Hybrid:
- Again, there’s just no getting away from that memory foam.
Your Guide to Buying an Inofia Mattress
In this section, we have listed all the ways you can narrow down their huge list of mattresses to something more palatable. If you need help to find the best mattress for you, this guide to Inofia mattress buying can help.
Inofia mattresses come in at different price points for those on a budget. They don’t have many high-end mattresses, so if you are looking for a luxury item, we would direct you away from this brand.
Their memory foam mattresses don’t tend to cost over $700 at the top end, with most of their models sitting at nearer $200. For their hybrid mattresses, this price jumps up slightly to closer to $500, to accommodate for the extra sleep technology.
Shopping for a mattress by temperature is a great idea if you get hot in the night. Those of us who live in warmer climates often can’t sleep when it’s too hot, so cooling mattresses are popular. They are considered soothing for injury, too.
Try the Inofia Cooling Hybrid mattress if you tend to sleep hot and you want to do something about it for an affordable rate.
The Mattress Type
There are a few different kinds of mattress for you to choose from, although Inofia don’t offer all kinds. We don’t often see fully sprung mattresses nowadays and they do all tend to be hybrid or foam. This isn’t great for consumers that dislike a memory foam bed. Inofia don’t sell innerspring mattresses either. The closest they have is their hybrid range. These have both springs and foam.
If you hate memory foam but want an Inofia mattress, try their Air Buffer Spring mattress. It is tufted on top for a smoother feel and quilted for extra bounce. The memory foam layers are nearby, but there is a good surface between you and it to stop the feeling on your skin.
If you want a mattress that has a bit of bounce to it, then the hybrid option is best. Additionally, a firmer bed will have more bounce to it than a softer one will.
If you like a foam bed, you can expect to go in the opposite direction. Sinkage is the term we use to describe how much you sink into your memory foam mattress. The deeper the mattress, the more you ought to sink. Softer mattresses have more sinkage than firmer ones.
The Noise of the Mattress
Noise reduction comes as standard in most memory foam mattresses, but not in hybrids. The noise you hear when your partner tosses and turns at night is usually due to old springs. When your mattress does start making noises in the night, it’s a sign that it needs replaced.
A new hybrid mattress shouldn’t make much noise at all, even though it contains springs. However, if you really are concerned about the noise of your mattress waking you up, a foam bed is best. Try the Inofia Gel Infused Memory Foam Mattress on for size and see if it is quiet enough for you.
Inofia offer differing warranties for different products. However, all of their mattresses come with a 10-year limited warranty for parts and defects. They also come with a 100-night risk free sleep trial, so you can try out the bed across a couple of seasons before you decide to buy. This works especially well for cooling mattresses you’d like to try in wintertime. You can read more on their FAQs page.
Setup and Delivery of a Bed-in-a-box Inofia Mattress
A bed in a box mattress will always arrive exactly as described. It will be rolled up, vacuum sealed, and placed in a box for ease of transport. The smaller the mattresses can be squeezed up into, the less space they take during shipping. You might not think it, but this helps with the carbon imprint of each mattress since less journeys are needed.
When your mattress arrives, take it into the room that you wish to keep it in before you unbox it. When you cut away the box and the plastic, the mattress will unroll and spring into shape. It will be difficult to move at this point. It will take up to 48 hours to expand, but you can sleep on it from the outset. You won’t get a full feel for how comfortable the mattress is until you have used it after it has fully expanded.
You should be able to use your Inofia mattress straight away. Remember to add a mattress protector before you put your sheets on.

The Verdict on the Inofia Mattress Range
Although there are a few misconceptions about this brand, we expect that they will become big players on the European side of the ocean in the coming years. We westerners tend to be naturally suspicious of brands and products that don’t come with flashy American advertising… but we think it’s only a matter of time before Inofia develop a solid marketing campaign that puts us at ease.
When that day comes, we have every reason to suspect that they will conquer Europe, too.
