Seemingly endless options are available when you are choosing bedding.  Finding a quilt cover or bed sheet set that appeal to you is much easier than finding the best mattress topper for your bed.  Inside Outside Furnishing & Lifestyle sell a wide range of mattress protectors and mattress toppers so to help you make the right choice for you; we have prepared some basic information.

Memory Foam Mattress Topper

Most of our memory foam mattress toppers are shaped like a mattress pad; they do not have the side gusset walls but rather sit on the bed like another mattress layer. Memory foam toppers allow even weight distribution and relieve pressure points on your body.   They come in a range of thicknesses from 5cm-8cm with the thicker toppers being more dense and luxurious.  Covers come in a range of breathable fabrics and can be removed for washing.  I recommend these mattress topper for mattresses that are deeper than 45cm, as you don’t need to worry about the depth of the side skirt/gusset.

Cool Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper

Complementing the attributes of the memory foam topper, visco gel foam infuses micro gel elements into the memory foam, individualising contouring and providing a cooler sleeping surface.  The cool gel infused memory foam mattress toppers are especially good for warmer climates or hot sleepers. 

Bamboo Mattress Topper

Bamboo ball filling is created to ensure softness and comfort.  These toppers feature a deep skirt to keep the mattress topper fitted to your bed and mattress and with pockets sewn to prevent lumps and allow even distribution of weight.  They are also anti-bacterial and dust mite resistant.  Plus they are machine washable.

Duck Feather & Down and Goose Down & Feather Mattress Topper

Down & Feather mattress toppers give lofty cushioned softness to support your sleep.  Inside Outside Furnishing & Lifestyle offers a choice of feather and down toppers featuring a deep skirt to keep your topper in place on your bed. Pockets are sewn into the topper to prevent the stuffing spreading which would cause a lumpy sleep.  More down means softer feel, so the Goose down & feather topper is the softer of the two.

Pillowtop Mattress Topper

With microfiber filling, this topper with elasticized skirt provides lofty cushioning, washable, best to line dry or dry clean.

Egg Crate Foam Mattress Topper

These foam mattress toppers enhance air circulation around your body and provide even weight distribution.  These can’t be washed, just sponged clean and cannot be used with an electric blanket. 

Before you decide, yourself:

  1. Do you want a soft, medium or firm feel when you sleep?
  2. Do you have any live in a warm climate or are you a ‘hot sleeper’?
  3. What is your budget?
  4. Do you want a thicker bed topper or do you want a more subtle effect?
  5. Do you need to be able to wash the cover/topper?

Ultimately choosing a mattress topper or mattress protector is a personal choice that only you can make.  You know how you sleep and your preferred level of comfort.  That said, we would be happy to assist you in your choice.  Email us at for assistance.
