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.
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.
