As the “bed in a box” market becomes more and more saturated, it is always a pleasure to see a company that brings something different to the bedroom.
In this Brook and Wilde mattress review, I will talk about all the features the mattress has to offer and if it’s worth a buy (SUMMARY AT THE END).
The Brook and Wilde mattress is made up of 5 unique layers (2 of which are pocket spring layers). Brook and Wilde comply with the safety BS7 177 standards which deem the mattress as “fire retardant” and is free from Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) which deplete our ozone layer.
The cover and the mattress is made here in the UK, Derby to be specific.
The cover is divided in two by a sleek orange stripe running along the midsection of the mattress to neatly bring the top white section and the lower navy section together. The cover is designed in such a way to be soft, breathable yet also durable.
Brook and Wilde have included mattress handles for practicality, this is always great to see as very few brands offer handles for manoeuvring. The cover is also Hypoallergenic, which is great for those prone to allergies, however, the cover is not machine washable so the good old damp cloth will have to be used to get rid of any spillages.
Brook and Wilde Mattress Layers
1. Top Memory Foam Layer
The Visco-elastic properties of memory foam allow for it to contour and mould to the shape of your body. Another great reason to have memory foam close to your body is the fact that its slow responsiveness dampens any motion transference which could be coming from your partners’ side.
2. Mini Pocket Spring Layer
2000 mini pocket springs placed just beneath the memory foam layer are engineered to aid with needed pressure relief as well as act as a transition layer.
3. Memory Foam Layer
The second memory foam layer is denser and takes the shape of a wave to provide more support to the shoulder areas as well as to allow for optimal spinal alignment.
4. Full Pocket Spring Layer
This is the support layer which gives you needed support. The springs are individually wrapped which allow for them to move independently. This layer gives you the push back you need and minimises edge collapse.
5. Base Polyurethane Layer
Polyurethane is the industry standard as a base layer. It is great as a foundation layer because of its dense form and also keeps the mattress together.
How Thick Is the Brook and Wilde Mattress?
The total mattress thickness is 28cm, this is 3cm thicker than the average mattress but your bed sheets will still work fine with the Brook and Wilde and the mattress will hold up to 18 stone or 114kg per person(based on a bed with two people).
This is what sets the Brook and Wilde mattress apart from the rest, they don’t offer a “one size fits all” mattress but rather offer their mattresses in 3 degrees of firmness. Soft, medium and firm. According to our Brook and Wilde mattress review, the firmness ranges from 4-7.
If you are not satisfied with the firmness of your mattress, Brook and Wilde actually exchange the whole mattress, and the exchanged mattress gets donated to the British Heart Foundation.
The look the Brook and Wilde mattress has is one of our favourites, it looks like a quality mattress thanks to its unique design pattern on the white upper section. However, it is very likely you will place a cover over, at least you can rest assured you have a good looking mattress beneath you.
Brook and Wilde Trial Period and Warranty
Just like the other mattress brands out there, Brook and Wilde offer a 100-night trial. This means you can try the mattress in the comfort of your own home. It will be delivered at no cost to you, they even take away your old mattress and recycle it for free. Generally, other brands charge extra for this service.
If you are not totally satisfied with your mattress you can either request a pickup and get a full refund or request another firmness to be sent to you.
The Brook and Wilde mattress comes with a 10-year guarantee, this is standard in the industry but still shows the confidence they have in their mattress.
Brook and Wilde really stand out when it comes to service compared to our other mattress reviews.
Mattress Delivery & Box
In this area Brook and Wilde truly shine. The mattress is vacuum sealed and rolled in a neat box for transportation. Delivery is within 3 days of order, this is the shortest time currently available for the “bed in a box” industry here in the UK.
The mattress is delivered using a two-man service that will bring the mattress to your room of choice, this is not common and is a great option for those who may need help getting the mattress upstairs. As previously described they can also take your old mattress as they leave and recycle it for you free of charge.
Once you have chosen your mattress, at the checkout page you can choose a premium 2 man delivery to your room of choice at a cost of £20. The day before delivery you will receive a 2-hour delivery window. On the day of delivery, the driver will pre-call you to give a heads up 30 minutes before they arrive. That way you will never miss the delivery.
For an extra £20, they can remove your current mattress at the same time of delivery(standard old mattress removal is on another day).
