You are probably aware that buying the right mattress is key to a good night’s sleep. Our earlier issue covered the online mattress stores with free trials that allow you to test out the mattress in the comfort of your home – up to 100 days! Though, the thing with buying a mattress is that it’s easier to just buy the first famous brand that you see and get the task over and done with. However, can these brands really give you what you need? In this issue, we took a closer and more in-depth look at these 8 most popular mattress brands and what’s good about them and how they will give you the sweet slumber you deserve!
8 Popular Mattress Brands & What’s Good About Them
With prices ranging from $2,000 to $12,000, Simmons Mattress is a little bit on the upscale side – though, you are assured that the quality and designs indeed make up for it. In fact, various 5-star hotels such as Shangri-La, Marriott, Marina Bay Sands, and The Ritz Carlton (the list is so long to mention all) use Simmon mattresses to provide comfort and sound sleep to its guests
Among its various mattresses, we love Simmons’ Beautyrest® series which features individually pocketed coil springs. This system isolates motion on the bed and allows you to have an undisturbed sleep despite any movement on the bed. These springs are compressed to build stronger resilience and provide better back support. Simmons also use different foams like the brand’s AirCool and AirFeel memory foams that can dispel heat to keep you cool and refreshed on your sleep. And with the GelTouch foam technology, weight is distributed evenly for soothing comfort.

2. King Koil
Another brand that originated in the USA in 1898, King Koil promises a supportive and comforting mattress that makes sleeping well a luxury that you can actually afford. From $300 to $2,000, you can purchase their mattresses in King Koil stores and other authorized offline and online retailers.
The brand also specialises in pocketed coil innerspring mattresses. What sets it apart, however, is that the coil system is spread into 5 contour zones based on where support is more needed. This means that the springs are concentrated on vital areas to provide better reinforcement where your body is the heaviest such as the spine area, providing a more superior quality sleep. For maximum sleeping surface and support, King Koil also has a foam encased technology which covers the spring unit perimeter edge to edge.

How to finance your home renovation or styling?
If you need to take up a loan to finance your home renovation or styling, do note that renovation loans often do not give you the cash upfront, hence you may not be able to use it for shopping, depending on whether your interior designer or stylist includes it in their quotation. If so, you might wish to consider a personal loan instead. Personal loans have slightly higher interest rates than renovation loans, but you get the cash flexibility. Our friends at Singsaver have compiled the best personal loans for you to check out.
When shopping for your home, do keep in mind to prioritize and focus on the essentials first. Leave the ‘nice-to-haves’ for later, for it’s best to not spend beyond your means. When buying your lights, we also suggest using credit cards that give you rebates, so you get extra savings. Every little bit of savings can go a long way!
We hope our list of top interior stylists has helped you! Do share it with your friends who need it too! Stay tuned for more guides, and in the meantime, do check out our other guides below.
