These are basically my opinions about the industry and how to be a smarter mattress shopper for every fellow Singaporean ;)


Our concept ...

Probably our most popular post of all, that is everywhere in Google searches and probably the most read blog-post about mattresses in Singapore!

The Logic of mattresses, how to buy?


Our take on the Hotel Experience.
How to have 5 star Hotel Experience right in your bedroom?


A lot of effort was spent into the content and to put the perspectives from a consumer.
They are easy to understand and not with jargons which you cannot understand, and of cause with some of Singapore's humour.

We take pride and full credit what these content can bring us, for the good and bad.

* Just so you know, it is really not easy starting a company that actually use facts. We often get slammed by haters or competitors, the mattress industry is indeed filled with uneducated people and sales orientated sales people, which will say what it takes to close the deal, even destroying other people's image. We however educate people now is the internet era, brands are just names. Manufacturers ultimately are manufacturers, whether or not we create good products, our components suppliers can substantiate for the value. 
Manufacturers that eventually eliminate middle people, will cause some people to be unhappy, but to the clients, that is value for you there ;)
Just saying, 2cents.

the IMPORTANCE of a flat base. Which is the support of your mattress.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, fellow supporters and fellow Singaporeans...

There are many questions asking about mattresses and honestly, the base is as important too.

Tilam King uses Individual Pocketed Springs, therefore the springs doesn't rely on one another, preventing motion to be transferred to your partner.

The flat base is very crucial and very important.

Most bases nowadays are made into slates, PLEASE avoid them. Slates were invented because to save logistics cost on shipping. It is bent,  have gaps in-between them, occasionally causing the springs to be slanted while applying pressure on them. 

Also for those bases that are installed together by putting part by part through assembly, make sure that the base is fixed properly. Check to see if there are any weird sounds or loose joints.


There is also an honest reason why I blog about this topic.

Some of our clients complaint to us about our mattress sinking in the middle, 
or sagging in the middle.

We were shocked and 
we reacted by firstly going to their place to check it out.
Secondly, we place the mattress on the floor, which is flat, to test the mattress out.

This will be the most honest solution for us to identify whether our mattresses are at fault or not.

We then lay down on the area that is claimed to be the faulty area to check.

Then, nothing is wrong... -.-"

Realize that the base had cracks and indent, the indent led the mattress to feel that it had sagged in that particular area.


Hopefully after understanding this blog post, we start questioning more of the bases that we select for our mattress. All we need is to have a solid base that is flat, this assures that the mattress is well supported and hence giving you the best support you ever need from the mattress.

These solid bases are not expensive

for simple designs Queen size for example starts from $350 with 1 year warranty.

The more complex the design of the frames are the more the cost of the frames is.

The TILAM KING CONCEPT, and why no competition cannot come close?

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

We shall tell you the truth why people cannot follow or change to be like us? Yea I get it, they are bigger then us, to mimic a smaller company like us and crush us will be simple.
They have gone in too deep to even make that change possible. What if a top brand change to be like us? IE to say their previous effort in creating different models will be erased, imagine globally how big of an impact it will create? LOL. They cannot look back and will only continue doing the same thing that they do best, to confuse you more :P 

You see brands have to make more varieties for the consumers to basically let you feel indulged and spoilt for choices, ultimately losing focus on the price point and just going ahead with which ever feels good because it is just so tiring to look for a good mattress anyways.

If you actually take a look at REAL LUXURY brands for mattress, they only have 3 models or lesser, and offer full customization in their firmness. Sounds firmilar already right? but all these comes at a hefty price tag of way above the $10,000s and do not know why mattresses that are expensive are all Swedish. LOL since when did Sweden specialize in mattress? 

 Nvm, long story short.

The concept of a mattress that Tilam King STRONGLY believe is:

1. FIRMNESS comes from the springs, the springs are ultimately the core of the mattress, not the comfort layer. If there is a soft mattress, you take out the soft springs and put a firmer springs inside, it will become firmer.

2. Comfort layers, there are ONLY 3 major comfort layers, Latex , Memory foam , and Foam. Their primary purpose is to give comfort by easing off pressure before allowing the springs to give resistance. They are normally placed on top of the springs. This is what normally consumers are paying for in a mattress, the way how the mattress reacts to you when you lay down on the mattress. Each comfort layers are unique in it's own way.

3. Consumers should understand 1 & 2 and realized that all the places that do not understand about mattresses will sell you mattress based on firmness, WHICH in our perspective can be adjusted by the different spring settings. Why can't they follow us if it is so logical? Because they choose not to, and all their life they already have been doing more models just to create variety for absolutely no reason at all. Consumers cannot justify the difference between a $4,000 mattress vs $8,000 mattress vs $12,000 mattress vs $40,000 mattress. The internal components are all similar yet NAMED in a very different manner. 


To summarize, 

Mattresses have 2 major parts, 
top layer which are comfort layers,
bottom layer are the springs.

Whether the consumer is light weight, or heavy weight, we have created a particular system to cater. 

Doesn't mean that you are heavy you cannot buy that particular mattress because is too soft, we can firm it up for you.

So therefore, with just 5 models, Tilam King can represent the entire industry.
