LI don’t know how many people are always suffering from insomnia, poor sleep, and light sleep. Leaving aside pathological problems, the mattress may have the greatest impact. The vast majority of Chinese people do not have high requirements for mattresses, especially in third- and fourth-tier cities. They don’t have so much budget to replace mattresses, and they haven’t experienced the comfort and sleep-aiding effects brought by good mattresses, so they simply don’t I never thought about the importance of changing to a better mattress for sleep.
And a good mattress can make you sleep forever and stay in bed every day. It is so comfortable that you can completely let go of your anxiety and feel like nothing matters. People who have slept on a good mattress should have this feeling, especially the shocking feeling when they sleep for the first time, which will be unforgettable for a long time.
Here are some key points for choosing a good mattress.
When choosing a mattress, you must first start with the bed. The thickness of the mattress for a general row frame bed is in the range of 20~23cm, and the thickness of the mattress for a high box bed with storage function is between 6~12cm. For bunk beds It is recommended to choose a mattress of about 6cm. In addition, there are some American-style beds with a mattress thickness of 28cm. Mattresses with a thickness of more than 27cm may feel soft when sleeping. In China, it is generally recommended to use moderately hard or hard mattresses. The sleeping feeling of this kind of mattresses is more in line with the needs of Chinese people. In addition, mid-to-high-end mattresses can be used on both sides.
the height of the bed. It is generally recommended to use a mattress with a thickness of 22-25cm. The overall height of the bed plus the mattress is between 47-55cm, which is in line with the scientific sleeping height of Chinese people. There is also another set of algorithms, which is calculated according to the height of the user. The height of the bed plus the mattress is at the knee level or within 3cm higher.
Independent pocket springs are packaged in non-woven fabrics or cotton fabrics, and sealed by ultrasonic technology. The more spring coils, the higher and softer the spring body. The domestic conventional coils are 6~7 coils. The arrangement number of spring bodies depends on the size of the inner diameter of the spring. The smaller the inner diameter, the more spring bodies are needed, and the force is more dispersed. The impact of turning over at night and other actions is also smaller, but the disadvantage is that it is more soft. It is generally recommended that people who tend to be moderately soft or hard, or those who prefer a softer sleeping feeling, choose it.
Latex, simply put, there are two types, natural latex and synthetic latex. The way to distinguish is to look at the cross-section of latex. If there is no obvious layering, it is natural latex, otherwise it is synthetic latex. The pros and cons of latex mattresses, the good side is that latex itself is very soft, super quiet when sleeping, good air permeability, and anti-mite. Because of its softness, latex mattresses are more popular in Europe and the United States. For foreign brand mattresses, the thickness of latex is generally between 5 and 15cm, while Chinese people prefer moderate hardness or hard sleeping, so domestic mattresses The thickness of latex is generally between 1~2cm, or there is no latex layer at all. Even if you like a soft mattress, it is recommended to choose a latex with a thickness of about 5cm.
There are two kinds of palm mats: mountain palm and coconut palm. Mountain palm fiber has the characteristics of long fiber, high strength, good toughness, corrosion resistance and insect resistance, but the output is low. Coconut palm is made from the fibers in the husk of coconuts. It has a high yield and is cheap, but it is short in length, brittle and high in sugar. So generally speaking, under the same other conditions, mountain palm mattresses are better and more expensive. It should be noted that many low-end brown pads are bonded with high-ammonia concentrated latex, which has average air permeability and strong smell.
Fabrics, generally low-end mattresses use chemical fiber and brocade fabrics, mid-end mattresses use more coral fleece fabrics (also known as velveteen fabrics), mid-to-high-end mattresses use anti-mite knitted fabrics, and then go up It is embossed velvet fabric, 3D fabric, 4D fabric.
Let me introduce the well-known and reliable mattress brands at home and abroad one by one. It is not a list of mattress brands, but the ranking is indeed based on word-of-mouth. It must be emphasized that brand and cost-effectiveness are two relatively contradictory concepts. Top-grade mattresses are naturally more comfortable, but the price of tens of thousands is not a joke, and the brand premium is also high. Do what you can and make a reasonable budget.
Simmons, the brand that invented mattresses more than a hundred years ago, has a very high reputation and status in the industry, comparable to the existence of Everest. Since the localization process of Simmons is relatively late, and it often cooperates with hotels in the early stage, and the price is expensive, starting at 10,000 yuan, so most people don’t recognize it very much, but it is definitely the first choice for those in the industry who are not short of money.
Simmons has two factories in Suzhou and Changshu in China. According to people who have visited his factory, its professionalism and rigor are the highest in China, and its quality requirements are extremely strict. Even ordinary accessories will be adjusted dozens of times ,test. At the same time, the confidentiality work is also the best among 3S. The raw materials are exclusively supplied, and all products are produced in-house. Other brands who want to copy Simmons’ operations basically have to dismantle them. That is to say, most of the Simmons on the market through unofficial channels are counterfeit products. In addition, there are no so-called defective products, because the defective products of his family are directly destroyed, and they will not flow into the market at all.
At present, Simmons mattresses are divided into price gradients, mainly including luxury series, classic series, fashion series and limited series. In addition, there are Fjords series of comfortable chair products, and mattress peripheral products such as pillows, bed frames, and mattress protectors.
Sealy is also an American brand, founded in 1881, a little later than Simmons. Sealy started from the self-developed compressed cotton mattress, relying on constantly changing technology and constant quality, and now it is also recognized as one of the 3S mattress brands. In China, Sealy already has four manufacturing bases located in Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, and Huizhou. At the same time, it is also deeply involved in the hotel industry, and has been cooperating with Four Seasons Hotel, Ritz-Carlton Hotel, InterContinental Hotel, St. Regis Hotel, etc.
In terms of products, Sealy focuses on titanium alloy beauty posture induction springs, which automatically sense the weight and shape of the sleeper, make corresponding adjustments according to the changes in the sleeper’s body position during sleep, and provide support from soft to hard, with high cost performance and high Known for its comfort and high durability. Li Jiaqi has recommended the classic version of Shi Zunxiang.
Compared with the above two brands, Serta was much later. It was founded in 1931, but it is a brand that came from behind. In 1983, it used the “continuous spring system” to create the world’s first wave-shaped sponge mattress. In 2012, it launched a mattress with dual characteristics of gel memory foam and built-in spring. Today, it is the number one selling mattress in the United States Brand, mainly produces mattresses in the form of built-in continuous springs, followed by latex, memory foam and other mattresses.
Serta has more than 50 production bases around the world, and in China, it has authorized Airland to deploy, and has joined hands with well-known companies such as King Koil to develop offline retail and e-commerce markets. In 2009, Simmons was acquired by Serta, but the two still maintain independent operations without competing with each other.
In terms of products, Serta mainly has seven mattress series: imported, perfect, life, youth, classic, hotel, and home, to deeply explore the subdivided needs of different consumers. In terms of hotel cooperation, we have long-term cooperation with many large hotel groups such as Hilton Hotel, Marriott International Group, and InterContinental Hotel Group.
Jin Keer is also an American brand. It was founded in 1898 and has a long history. They are the first to create independent pocket springs. Their spinal health care beds were once very popular, and they were very popular in the 1980s and 1990s. Until today, word of mouth in the industry has been good.
At present, King Koil has more than 50 production bases in the world, covering more than 100 countries around the world. It was in 2000 that it entered China. At the beginning, it focused on the hotel market. At present, it has covered more than 900 hotels in China. At that time, the heavenly bed of his westin aroused great resonance, and it was also thanks to the hotel The market performance is good, and the price is cheaper than other American brands, and the civilian market is also very good. Currently, there are more than 420 retail stores in more than 200 cities in China.
Slumberland is a British brand. It is not well-known in the civilian market, but it is the earliest international mattress brand to enter the Chinese hotel industry. At that time, it was a factory in Harbin. Now, go to a hotel that opened in the 1990s and look through it. You can also see a lot of Slumberland mattresses. At that time, whether it was a local star-rated hotel or an international hotel brand entering China one after another, many hotels in the north, including along Chang’an Avenue in Beijing, as well as Jianguo and Nikko hotels, used Slumberland. At that time, when hotels were choosing suppliers, they had very little choice. In fact, they could only choose Slumberland. Foreign brands such as Simmons and King Koil began to enter China after around 2000. Therefore, Slumberland became the choice of many hotels. The agreement cooperation brand.
In fact, even now, many hotels still choose Slumberland for their superior rooms (commonly known as beggar rooms), for the first reason is cheapness and the second is comfort. Now if it is for home use and the budget is not high, Slumberland is also a very cost-effective option.
Tempur, the originator of memory foam mattresses. The word Tempur itself is the name of a material. In the 1970s, NASA developed a special pressure-absorbing material in order to relieve the enormous pressure on astronauts when they lifted off the ground. Later, NASA made this achievement Exclusively awarded to Tempur Company, and Tempur optimized and innovated this material and put it into civilian use.
Although it is a mattress brand that appeared very late, Tempur is obviously very fruitful. In 2013, Tempur acquired Sealy, which is the Sealy introduced above. In terms of products, Tempur focuses on temperature sensing and slow rebound, which precisely adapts to the body of consumers, reduces pressure and positional movement, and provides “the most comfortable sleep”. According to the different sleeping habits of consumers, series such as temperature sensing, cloud and mist and comfort have been launched, and there are various thickness options.
By the way, there are two manufacturers specializing in memory foam in China, Sino and Mengbaihe.
The history of Xilinmen can be traced back to the 1980s. It was originally a small workshop for making sofas. At the end of the 1980s, mattresses were introduced to China, and it was at this time that Xilinmen started making mattresses. In 1995, Xilinmen introduced the Swiss ultrasonic bagged independent spring production line and the American computerized quilting machine. In 2002, it became an OEM company of IKEA (it is still now), and then it was listed on the A-share market in 2012. The development has been relatively stable. ,neither warm nor hot.
Xilinmen has the largest mattress production line in Asia, and its research and development expenditure has also increased from 39 million yuan in 2015 to 76 million yuan in 2017. As of 2018, it has more than 1,700 offline physical stores. Hotel furniture products have also been adopted by more than 200 star-rated hotels such as Hilton, Marriott, and Sheraton, as well as national units such as the Great Hall of the People and the National Grand Theater.
In terms of products, all mattresses are made of super soft sponge. The biggest function of this material is that it can also play an anti-static role in a particularly dry environment, while ensuring comfort. The undulating super soft sponge wraps the body. This material can bring balance and support to the human body, so that everyone can reduce the state of turning over during sleep. Those who like this material will find it very good, but some people will find it too soft.
Airland, a Hong Kong brand, has a relatively long history. It started making mattresses in 1966. At that time, it was still a small mattress factory. It entered China in the 1980s and built a factory in Shenzhen. At that time, the main market was still in South China, and it has now expanded. Nationally, the reputation is very high. By the way, let me tell you an interesting fact. Didn’t it say that Airlan is the OEM factory of Serta? There is a saying that it is because of Airlan that Serta’s quality is always inferior in the industry, because Airlan always puts Serta sold the same style.
In recent years, it mainly produces latex mattresses, including health series, natural series, Jinyalan series and love children series. The materials and production of each series are different, but they are all in line with ergonomics. Consumers can choose according to their own preferences and sleep Get used to choosing. In addition, it also owns Yalan Home Textiles.
Suibao is a mattress brand familiar to Cantonese people. Many local people even refer to soft mattresses as Suibao beds when they talk about the differences between hard mattresses and soft mattresses. The reason is that the first domestic spring mattress was produced by Suibao, and it was once brilliant. From 1993 to 2002, its output value, sales volume, total profit and tax, and market share ranked first among similar products in the country. . However, in recent years, Suibao has not been outstanding, and it has been tepid, but because of this, the price/performance ratio is quite high.
Mousse, a mattress brand with mixed reputation and great controversy. The reason for the ruin is that Mousse advertised in the early days that he started to make mattresses as a French brand in 1860 (later he changed his name and admitted that it was a domestic brand), and found an old foreign man to pretend to be a designer, etc., and was later deeply ripped off by someone (rumored to be a colleague). How to put it, in terms of marketing methods, Mousse is the No. 1 of domestic mattresses. As for the quality, it’s actually not bad, but the brand premium is very high.
The above are all the top-ranked mattress brands in China. In addition, there are many regional small and medium-sized old mattress manufacturers in China. Most of the brand awareness is limited to the local area, such as Shanghai’s Aisle, Hunan’s Good Night from Anhui, Wanbao from Anhui, Jisi from Shandong, Lianle from Hubei, Huaweimei from Zhejiang, and Nature from Guizhou. They are based in the local area and have many stores in the local area. They are oriented to local consumers and their product positioning is relatively close to the people. The price/performance ratio is also high.
Finally, the mattress is not the only factor for a comfortable sleep. You sleep comfortably in a hotel. The mattress is only one aspect. Another important reason is the mattress. You can experience this by yourself. For the same mattress, there are completely two feelings whether it is covered with goose down mattress or not. There are more well-known brands in this area on the market. In addition to some of the above mattress brands, there are also Kangerxin, Lanxu (Accor), Yamian, Stefel and so on.
