The Morgongava mattress by IKEA is our favorite pick out of the three beds we’ll be reviewing. Though it costs more, it’s made with mostly natural latex and holds up better over time than the other two on our list.
IKEA is a Swedish furniture and houseware company that offers a range of mattresses, from cheap innerspring beds to higher-end memory foam and latex options.
IKEA makes several different latex mattresses, but we’ll be focusing on three of their models today. Each has its own set of specifications and unique composition. While one is made with just latex, the other two use foam layers in addition to latex. The Matrand and Myrbacka latex beds by IKEA use synthetic latex from petroleum-based compounds.
As a result, each of these models is priced lower than the third model, the Morgongava. The Morgongava bed is IKEA’s high-end latex option and uses 85 percent natural latex (made from natural rubber). Below, we’ll take a close look at each of these beds, so you know which one is right for you.
#1 Best IKEA Latex Mattress for Lightweight Sleepers- The Matrand Mattress

The Matrand mattress by IKEA uses synthetic latex in its construction, along with quality materials, such as cotton and wool. It has an affordable price ($399 for a Queen size) and ships directly to your home. Setup is easy and you just have to unroll the mattress, then it’s ready to use.
What We Liked:
- Affordable price
- Good at isolating motion
- Machine washable cover
- 25-year warranty
What We Didn’t Like:
- Wears out fast
- May feel too firm for some
The Matrand mattress uses a 2-inch layer of synthetic latex in its comfort layer, which provides contouring support. The base is made with a dense polyfoam that supports the comfort layer and the mattress is 7.25 inches high in total. Although the mattress is described as medium-firm, some users report that it’s a very firm bed.
Best for Lighter Weight Individuals
There are some reports of the Matrand mattress wearing out faster than a more expensive bed would. If you’re overweight, you might want to check out a high-quality innerspring bed instead. Otherwise, lightweight sleepers who want a firm bed should do well with the Matrand mattress. If the bed is too firm, you can look into adding a mattress topper to soften it up.
Machine Washable Cover
The cover of the Matrand mattress is made with polyester and cotton with rayon padding. It can be taken off and machine washed, but don’t dry clean, iron, tumble dry, or bleach the fabric.
Allow the Bed to Expand
Like other IKEA beds, the Matrand mattress comes in a rolled-up package. While you may use the mattress right away if you want, it can take up to 72 hours to expand to its full size. If there’s an off-gassing odor present, the smell should fade within a few days.
Overall, the price of the Matrand mattress is truly impressive for a latex bed. However, some users report that the bed wears out fast. If you do choose this mattress, keep in mind that it probably won’t last as long as a more expensive option. The bed comes with a 365-day return/exchange policy, which you can use if you decide not to keep it.
#2 Best IKEA Latex Mattress for Couples- The Myrbacka Mattress

We chose the Myrbacka mattress as the best option for couples because it is good at absorbing motion. If you share your bed with a restless partner, the vibrations from their movements shouldn’t bother you in this bed. It’s a bit more expensive than the Matrand bed ($499 for a Queen) because there are some extra materials used in its construction.
What We Liked:
- Responsive feel
- Good at absorbing motion
- Removable cover
What We Didn’t Like:
- Wears out fast
Like the Matrand mattress, the Myrbacka bed is made with synthetic latex, but the latex layer is an inch thicker, totaling 3 inches. Under that is a 3-inch layer of memory foam for some conforming support. The mattress also uses a dense polyfoam in its base layer, to give the bed its shape, and it is 9.5 inches high.
If you want a bed that provides some contouring but has a responsive feel, rather than cradling sinkage, this bed could be a good pick. Latex also has the benefit of sleeping cooler than memory foam, in most cases.
Note that, although the bed is described as medium-firm, users report it as firm. Only choose this mattress if you know you like a firm feel for your bed.
If you share your bed with a pet or partner, you’ll probably appreciate the Myrbacka mattress by IKEA. The latex and memory foam layers, in addition to the dense foam base, absorb motion well. The bed is also quiet when bearing weight, so you don’t have to worry about disturbing your partner with noise.
Most foam beds by IKEA come rolled up for easy delivery. The Myrbacka bed, on the other hand, doesn’t come roll-packed and must be delivered on a truck. This also means you don’t have to give your bed 72 hours to expand and you can use it right away.
The Myrbacka mattress comes with a removable and machine-washable cover for easy maintenance. It’s a very affordable latex bed that absorbs motion well, but some users report that it wears out fast.
Like the Matrand mattress, the bed is backed by IKEA’s 365-day return or exchange policy.
#3 Best IKEA Latex Mattress, Overall- The Morgongava Mattress

Users report that the Morgongava mattress alleviates pressure and conforms comfortably to the body. We chose it as the best IKEA latex mattress, overall, because of the quality of its materials. It’s the most expensive IKEA latex mattress ($2,795 for a Queen) because it’s made with 85 percent natural latex.
What We Liked:
- Sleeps cool
- Mostly natural latex
- Isolates motion well
What We Didn’t Like:
- Short lifespan, compared to the average latex mattress
Like the other two beds reviewed, the Morgongava mattress is described by IKEA as a medium-firm bed. But users report that the mattress is, in fact, firm. We only recommend picking this bed if you know for sure you enjoy the feel of a firm mattress.
Good for Couples
Couples who are looking for good motion isolation will likely appreciate the Morgongava mattress. It’s also reported to be virtually silent when you move around on it, which is another good feature for couples.
Combination sleepers may like the Morgongava mattress by IKEA, as long as they prefer a firm bed. It has a bouncy, responsive feel, which makes it easy to switch positions in the night.
Better for Average Weight Individuals
The Morgongava mattress by IKEA is 7.8-inches high, which isn’t very thick compared to most mattresses. Overweight individuals may find that the bed isn’t thick enough to provide them with the support they need.
The IKEA Morgongava mattress uses natural wool and cotton padding to provide some cushioning to sleepers. Your Morgongava bed might come with a slight off-gassing odor that fades within a few days. It has a 365-day exchange period, like the other two beds reviewed.
What to Consider When Buying an IKEA Latex Mattress
IKEA latex mattresses could be suitable for people who want latex but don’t want to spend a ton on their next mattress. Let’s look at some features to keep in mind before you buy:
Firmness and Support
IKEA doesn’t offer different firmness options for its latex mattresses. If you choose one of them, make sure you prefer a firmer bed. Even though the beds are listed as medium-firm, customers report that they’re quite firm.
Latex mattresses tend to feel supportive and the IKEA latex beds do well in this area, for the most part. Note that some users reported their IKEA latex mattress sagging prematurely. So, you may have better luck with one if you’re average or below average weight.
Warranty and Sleep Trial
IKEA mattresses come with a 25-year warranty. This warranty applies to the mattress itself but not the cover. IKEA will replace or repair your bed if there’s a defect in workmanship or construction.
Each IKEA mattress comes with a 365-day exchange policy. If you decide you don’t want your bed during that period, you may be able to return it or get a new one.
Latex tends to sleep cool and most customers seem to sleep at a comfortable temperature on IKEA latex mattresses, according to reviews. There are a few complaints of heat retention though, so if you’re a consistently hot sleeper, you may want to look specifically at beds for hot sleepers.
Memory foam mattresses are the best at absorbing motion, but latex is a close second. Since IKEA latex mattresses use latex in their comfort layers and dense foam for their bases, the beds excel at motion isolation. Whether you share your bed with a partner or have a pet that jumps on your bed at night, one of these mattresses could be a good pick.
Final Words and Verdict
Judging each bed by its support and overall quality, the best latex bed by IKEA is the Morgongava mattress. While the Myrabacka and Matrand mattresses are made with all synthetic latex, the Morgongava bed is made of 85 percent natural latex. This is a plus for people who are concerned about synthetic chemicals and it also has the benefit of extra durability.
If you can afford it and want a latex bed with great motion isolation and support with a firm feel, consider the Morganagava mattress. If none of these beds appeal to you, there are lots of other latex mattresses on the market. Check out our top-rated options, here.
