This brand is not familiar to most people, but there is quality in Kingsdown mattress. You should not write them off just because they are not at the top. They are on the market for over 100 years, and that means something. You can’t make bad products and stay competitive for such a long time. I think there is no better proof of the quality of their mattresses. But lets get on with this review, to see what is happening up close.
First thing you need to know, the best thing that Kingsdown does are innerspring mattresses. These are still the best selling types and most people buy them when they are out to get a new sleeping surface. There are many memory foam, latex and futon mattresses but innerspring is far more superior when it comes to number of sales.
It happens that people rated Kingsdown innerspring mattresses as being more comfortable than Serta and Spring Air. I think this is a great thing for you to hear, since you will save money if you decide to go with this brand. Only Sealy and Simmons were rated better, which shows you a lot about the quality you get with one of beds from this brand.
But when it comes to air beds, latex, memory foam and water beds, the things change a lot. The reviews and ratings are not so good here and most people are not satisfied with their purchase. You can check that out by yourself and read some mattress reviews and ratings that can be found at Epinions.com. Of course, there are other websites two, but these two com to my mind first.
The only good thing about these models is that they have a good price, but that is not enough to raise the value. Because these beds are not showing satisfying quality, I would suggest you avoid them. If you really have to get memory foam or latex mattress, choose another brand as a manufacturer. Kingsdown is great for innerspring, anything else is not a good option, considering what you can find out there.
3 Most Popular Kingsdown Mattresses
There are three ranges of beds I would like to review here. These are: Perfect Partner, the Plush Sense mattress and the Body System mattress.
First one is specifically designed for two people, as its name suggests – Kingsdown Perfect Partner mattress. Good people from this company say that this is their best product and that they use advance technology to make it. But there is one big flaw in their claim that this is the greatest thing for two people. It’s because of the coils that are connected. Innerspring beds will make wave motion because of them and there is no solution to this problem, since all the coils are tied. So, when a motion is made on one side of the bed, inherently, the motion will be transferred to all sides of bed. There is no way of stopping this, especially when one partner is heavier. The only way to have a good mattress, the one that won’t transfer motion, is to get a memory foam mattress.
Kingsdown Plush Sense mattress has one feature that sells it: A ProEdge Spring System that is on the box spring. It provides more comfort due to bigger perimeter ad the sides. The edges are 20% firmer than usually which is a great for support. This is a good choice for all of us who like to sleep close to the edge ( I am the first to admit that, but why do I love it, I do not know ). You won’t fall down into the mattress and you will definitely not slide over the bed. It’s a great feature for people who know how to appreciate it.
Kingsdown Body System is using all the best materials out there. But what makes it different is its connection to the Dormo-Diagnostics Sleep Machine. This is actually used to analyze your body shape, distribution of weight and then uses that information to select the best Body System model for you. The data that is used involves statistics from millions of people who were included in the research. This is something of great help, especially for those people who are not sure what kind of firmness level they want. In case you can’t decide what kind of support you need, a good testing on a Dormo-Diagnostics Sleep Machine can help. And with it, you will get a quality mattress.
One bad thing about innerspring models is sagging. It doesn’t happen to Kingsdown models only, but to all the brands out there. No matter how many times you flip your mattress, the sagging will appear eventually. The price this brand offers kinda raises the value of their products so you actually get a good deal here. But don’t be surprised when sagging appears. You can’t do nothing about it, except buying a latex or memory foam bed from the start. But that costs money. If you are on the budget, Kingsdown mattresses are a good choice indeed. But if you want top notch product and are ready to pay for it, I suggest you choose another type of bed and another brand.
