IKEA Minnesund Mattress Review


Besides your budget, the most important thing to look at when choosing a mattress is its structure. IKEA Minnesund foam mattress is made of a single layer which is polyurethane foam of 1.7 PCF. Poly foam is a flexible material that offers standard comfort for the consumer. Minnesund mattress foam is highly resilient which provides great support needed for a good night’s sleep.


The mattress is available in three sizes at the IKEA store which are twin, full and queen size. Its 10 cm thickness, however, is a debatable matter. According to customers’ opinions on this product, there have been complaints about it being to thin for everyday use. Therefore, the weight of the consumer should be taken into consideration when deciding to purchase this product.

The reason is because the Minnesund mattress can get flattened due to heavy weight pressed on it regularly. With that in mind, this mattress is perfect for light weight consumers or occasional use such as for the guest room.


The poly foam base is lined with non-woven polypropylene while the ticking is made of  64 % cotton and 36 % polyester. Additional filling that provides comfort consists of a combination of  modacrylic fiber wadding, polyester and viscose.

The cover is removable and washable in the washing machine on normal cycle. Bleaching, tumble drying, ironing or drycleaning are not recommended. The zipper of the cover is placed on the bottom which makes it suitable for seating, adding on to the convenience of this IKEA mattress.

How it feels

If we were to grade the firmness of the IKEA Minnesund mattress, it would be graded with 8 out of 10, where 10 is the most firm. That makes this mattress medium to hard firmness, which is perfect for consumers who prefer more support during their sleep. Such firmness also allows for good motion transfer and since there are no springs in the mattress, the noise is reduced to minimal.

There have been no complaints among the consumers regarding off-gassing which means there is no more off-gassing than usual. Naturally, every mattress will release bad smells for a certain period of time until it airs out completely. Therefore, off-gassing is nothing unusual, especially with foam mattresses which take about four weeks to air out because of the materials they’re made of.

When it comes to the comfort, the IKEA Minnesund mattress offers more than other mattresses of its thickness do. However, there is a catch to it. This mattress is a component of a whole set of products from IKEA. Meaning, it wont be at its best when used on a traditional bed setting. In fact, consumers have stated that it is rather uncomfortable when not used in combination of other products from the set.

Therefore, the Minnesund mattress requires to be completed with a slatted bed base or a mattress base from IKEA. It is recommended to be used along with the IKEA “Luroy” bed base and frame for full comfort and satisfaction. The customers who have purchased this combination of products are highly satisfied with the results, stating the mattress really reaches its full potential when backed up by the remaining two components.

Overall, this set up will provide a great sleeping experience. The mattress itself works great as additional support placed over an old mattress, as stated by one customer. Either way, for the price you will be paying, the IKEA Minnesund mattress can meet your requirements, as long as you meet its requirements.

Pricing, shipping and other details

Designed and manufactured in Sweden, all IKEA mattresses come with a 25 year limited warranty. The warranty covers only the manufacturing defaults. Normal wear which comes with years of using the mattress is not covered by the warranty. IKEA offers a 365 days return policy, however, refunds are not allowed.

If you decide the mattress is not a right fit for you, you can exchange it for another mattress from the IKEA line within the first year of making the purchase. It is important to keep in mind that the mattress must be clean and undamaged prior to the return or otherwise it will not be accepted.

The price of the IKEA Minnesund mattress depends on the size you’re looking at. In general, this is a highly affordable mattress and one of the cheapest mattresses in the IKEA line. However, if you decide to purchase it with the rest of the components necessary to get the best out of it, the price will jump a little.

Even with the full combination, this mattress solution is cheaper than other mattresses on the market. Therefore, IKEA Minnesund mattress is a great option if you’re looking for comfort at a budget.

Shipping costs and time can be significantly reduced since the mattress comes roll packed, meaning it can easily fit in a car, saving you the time and the money for shipping services.
