1. The Origin Hybrid Mattress excels with innovative HexaGrid technology, which Ikea mattress lacks

The Origin Hybrid Mattress offers various advantages that set it apart from other mattresses. Its innovative HexaGrid technology, which contours to your body for better rest, is integral to its design. Ikea’s Valevag, on the other hand, lacks any such cutting-edge features. 

If you suffer from back or joint problems, this mattress is a great option thanks to its high-quality pressure relief, orthopedic back support, and temperature regulation. 

It is made with natural materials, including bamboo-infused memory foam and fine Australian wool. Plus, if you share your bed with a spouse, kid, or pet, you can rest assured that neither of you will be disturbed by their movements throughout the night, due to its effectiveness to eliminate partner disturbance.

 

2. Origin Hybrid has more than 3x the number of pocket springs than the Ikea Valevag – offering more responsive & customised support.

In fact, the Sleep Foundation recommends buyers to avoid mattresses with a spring count of less than 400 for the Queen size⁴ (Ikea’s King mattress only has ~215 springs).

Whilst on the other hand, Origin Hybrid offers 870 for its king size mattress. Why is this so important?

A higher number of springs, with all other things being equal, allows a mattress to better respond to the shape of the body, providing better support.

Mattresses with less springs often feel “stiffer” and “less responsive”.

Generally, the more expensive the mattress, the higher the number of springs (up to about 2000 pocket springs per mattress, after which a higher number of springs becomes more of a marketing gimmick).

A high spring count is a good determinant of mattress quality, and not something one should save on when looking for quality sleep.

 

3. Origin offers a 120-night trial period with a 100% money-back guarantee, which Ikea does not

The Origin Hybrid is priced at $699 for a single size, a bit higher than the Ikea Valevag’s $499. However, the higher cost reflects superior quality and performance, including a comprehensive 120-night trial period. In contrast, Ikea offers no trial period for the Valevag mattress. This means that the Origin Hybrid allows you to fully test the mattress in the comfort of your home before you make a long-term commitment, giving it an advantage over the Valevag. 

Plus, the 15-year warranty and free shipping both ways further demonstrate the company’s dedication to its customers.

 

4. The Origin Hybrid proves consumer satisfaction with higher consumer awards than Ikea

The Origin Hybrid outperforms the Ikea Valevag regarding consumer recognition and ratings. It has been awarded 39 consumer awards, including being named “Top Rated Mattress in Australia” by News.com.au, and is recommended by CHOICE® in 2023. On the other hand, the Ikea mattress has not won any consumer awards.

 

5. Origin Hybrid has clinical sleep trials with 2 certifications – validating its effectiveness and quality

Origin Hybrid has undergone clinical sleep trials, proving its effectiveness and suitability for various sleep preferences and needs. Meanwhile this is not something that has been found to have been done with Ikea.

Regarding quality marks and certificates, the Origin Hybrid is both CertiPUR-US® and OEKO-TEX® certified, guaranteeing it is free from harmful chemicals and meets high sustainability and safety standards. Ikea’s Valevag is only CertiPUR-US certified.

 

Conclusion:
Unmatched Quality, Comfort, and Value for Australians

Upon conducting an in-depth comparison, it’s evident that the Origin Hybrid Mattress significantly outperforms the Ikea Valevag Mattress in serving the needs of Australians. Although the Ikea Valevag provides some form of support and comfort, the Origin Hybrid sets itself apart through their cutting-edge features, accolades, customer satisfaction ratings, and comprehensive sleep trials.

The slight additional cost of an Origin Hybrid Mattress is more than justified by its quality and comfort. Buying a mattress is an investment in your health, sleep, and well-being for the years to come, not just a quick fix. The improved sleeping experience afforded by the Origin Hybrid’s cutting-edge features contributes to its durability and cost-effectiveness.

The Origin Hybrid Mattress provides the peace of mind sought by Australians, who are recognised for their refined tastes and an appreciation for products that offer excellent value for money. It will serve them well for many years due to the comfort, durability, and excellent effects on sleep and health it provides.

1. The Origin Hybrid Pro is 5.5cm thicker than the Ikea VATNESTRÖM mattress, making it better at pressure relief and comfort

Compared to the 26cm thickness of the Vatnestrom, the Origin Hybrid Pro mattress is thicker by 5.5cm. The extra thickness is a mark of high-quality and comfortable design. It improves the look of your bed and offers exceptional pressure relief because of the extra material that absorbs the user’s weight and lasts longer.

 

2. The Origin Hybrid Pro uses Graphite Crystal Latex, the world’s greatest thermal conductor, making it even cooler than regular latex, found in Ikea’s mattress

The Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress leverages a hybrid structure combining foam, latex, and pocketed springs, creating an optimal balance of comfort and support. Including the revolutionary graphite crystal latex; the world’s best thermal conductor that enhances the mattress’s cooling effect and contributes to an even more responsive bounce for improved comfort.

However, the Ikea VATNESTRÖM mattress is only made with regular latex.

At Origin we strive to give the highest quality at the most affordable price point, so we managed to work together with our factory to offer our revolutionary graphite cooling latex at an affordable price.

 

3. Origin Hybrid Pro has more than 3x the number of pocket springs than the Ikea  VATNESTRÖM Mattress – offering more responsive & customised support

The Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress sets a high bar with up to 2,202 pocketed springs in its King Size variant. A higher spring count is associated with superior body contouring and responsiveness, enhancing the mattress’s adaptability to different sleeping positions.

In contrast, the Ikea VATNESTRÖM mattress utilises only 218 springs in its design with the same variant as Origin’s. While innovative, this choice may result in less adaptive support compared to the spring-infused structure of the Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress.

 

4. The Origin Hybrid Pro features microsprings, which is lacking in the Ikea’s mattress

Microsprings, which have a smaller surface area and are more responsive, are also included in the Origin Hybrid Pro. They shape themselves precisely to your body, giving you better support and making you more at ease. This cutting-edge feature currently lacks individualized support and is not incorporated into Ikea’s model.

 

5. Origin offers a 120-night trial period with a 100% money-back guarantee, which Ikea does not

This extended trial allows customers to test the mattress, ensuring the materials are aligned with their comfort needs. Also, Origin provides a 15-year warranty on all our mattresses, reflecting the confidence in the durability and longevity of our products. Ikea only offers a 10-year warranty.

 

Conclusion

Investing in something as crucial as quality sleep means choosing a mattress that uses superior materials and offers a comfortable and durable sleeping solution. With its carefully selected materials and innovative design, the Origin Hybrid Pro is undoubtedly a cut above the Ikea VATNESTRÖM Mattress for the Australian market.
