The King Koil Mattress company has been operating for over 100 years as a low cost provider of innerspring mattresses. In recent years they have introduced foam to their product designs, but for the most part they have stuck with affordable and straightforward models. Read on to learn more about how King Koil started, how the company has evolved over time and what they offer that other companies don't – and how their customers feel about these points of difference.
The King Koil company was founded in 1898 and has remained one of the most well-known brands in mattresses alongside other long-running companies such as Kingsdown. What began in a small company with only six employees has ballooned into a huge international business. During its long history the company has received awards and praise from several well-respected chiropractic societies, helping the company establish its image as a provider of mattresses than aren't only comfortable and affordable, but actually good for the spine.
In the past decade the King Koil mattress company started updating some of their designs to keep pace with the changing face of the mattress industry. The commercial use of new materials like memory foam meant more traditional innerspring mattress producers had to learn to evolve. King Koil started incorporating foam technology into their mattress designs while still retaining the same innerspring cores they had built their name and reputation around.
As already mentioned, affordability is one of King Koil's main selling points. They pride themselves on being able to produce quality innerspring mattresses which are relatively affordable compared to many of the newer designs offered by other mattress companies.
However, that affordability might also be King Koil's downfall. Low costs in a mattress are often (but not always) a sign that low quality materials have been used in the products. Judging by the attitudes of many King Coil mattress buyers, this may be the case with this company. Many King Koil customers have complained about the extremely short lifespan and durability of the mattress they bought. Some customers have also complained their mattress didn't live up to the reputation given to the company by chiropractic recommendations, saying their mattress actually caused back pain or made it worse. Many customers have felt the money they saved by buying King Koil ended up going towards a replacement mattress because their King Koil didn't last more than a few years. In other words a King Koil may be great in terms of comfort at first, but don't expect a whole lot of longevity.
All that said, not all King Koil mattress customers are dissatisfied with the products they bought. There's quite a range of opinions on the different models offered by King Koil, with some being almost universally hated by customers while others are relatively popular. Amongst these more popular models are the Posture Bond Perfect Contour mattresses. If you're interested in buying a King Koil, it's recommended you look at buying one from this line.
