better to go for latex instead of memory foam, keeps cooler apparently.

tried the tempur ones, and was amazing. but they're about £2k and was hemorrhaging dough at the time.

Had a read through the buying guide on that johnryan website (which is ace) and agree pocket sprung sounds the most suitable (less of a gamble than these memory foam ones).

Sealy Teramo 1400 (think it may now be renamed to nostromo) seems to get great reviews for a pocket sprung so thinking of either going for that or one of the johnryan ones.

Set a budget of no more than a bag of sand as it's a fucking mattress, who'd have thought buying a mattress would be such an education.

The 32* or 24* might be a little small for the bedroom dee, I considered the 32 myself but im more than happy with the bigger version.

It’s 4k right?
Might sound like a stupid question, but is the stand included in the price?

Also do you not have a sky box? Surely this would ruin the aesthetics of the tv? And also does the power cable annoy you?
Thinking of getting one but just thinking that functionality wise, I’ll never have it looking like the promo photos, so there’s no real point.

How is the Serif amazing for the price? Is it cheap in UK now?

I'd go for a Samsung 'frame' TV over a Serif anyday. The Serif is a really poorly thought out product. Expected better from the designers.

yep, it's 4k and the stands are included.
I use the sky online app and only pay for the series part or on some weekend i buy myself a ticket for some games.
Not a specialist with sky, but i think it's pretty much the same as the box isn't so?
At least i can see the whole programm when i open the app. All which i'd need to watch everything is the account.
I hide the power cable under a carpet and the tv has some cable clips for the stands, so u can't even see it. But yeah, when u'd like to use cable or additional boxes it might looks off when the plug isn't right behind the tv.
Just been at this place, thought u'd like to see some more rl pics. Looks exactly the same irl.

I can also snap u some pics of my setup, just pm me your email addy.

And i'm not gonna argue which tv might be better and cheaper, has better tech or design, it's just always so subjective. If you have this 'i want it' feeling and when the design fits room just go for it, there's no alternative anyway Smiling

Hay have done a collab with Ikea, was in the place (against will) Friday and I have to admit for the money is superb. The big kitchen table thing is well worth 150
